EYE STUDIO COLOR PLUSH SILK EYE SHADOW
Lately I’ve been using drug store cosmetics and have been incredibly impressed with the quality I’ve come across.
One of my favorites is Maybelline’s Eye Studio Color Plush Silk Eye Shadow. The colors are highly pigmented and the palette’s are both strong and fashionable with a silky feel and reflective/sometimes glittery quality. After doing a little research on Maybelline’s website, I discovered that they can be used both wet and dry. Using them wet almost completely eliminates shadow fall out under the eye and the colors are easily blended. My eyes are very sensitive to eye makeup and I haven’t experience any irritation from wearing the shadows. Another plus is that the shadows last all day and don’t crease.
One of the best things about these consumer grade products is that they’re designed to be easy to use and there’s educational videos and support online to help people learn how to use them. There’s also a photo on the back of the container demonstrating a look using all 4 colors.
The only downside is that the colors aren’t available individually and it’s not clear if this line is available for a limited time.
The palettes run between $6 and $9.99, depending on where they’re purchased. I saw them today at Duane Reade for $9.99. You don’t get a lot of eye shadow for your money but as the colors are highly pigmented, they do go a long way. The big advantage is getting an array of colors in one palette.
Stay tuned as I’ll be reviewing more of my favorite drug store cosmetics.
