this eyeshadow is a very good product! I am actually starting to like Maybilline more than [...]. This eyeshadow is very shimmery and does stay on all day. And the packaging is awesome! [...] has an eyeshadow simmilar to this but for [$] and i have that one too but the Maybelline eyeshadow package is actually made of glass, not plastic like the [...] one. So for a [$] less than a [...] eyeshadow you can get a glass package. [...].
I saw a youtube video saying how great the maybelline products are. I ususally buy high end and I never tried a cream shadow before. I tried this and used it as a base with a pink eyeshadow that was high end and after being out on the town the whole day my eyes felt very heavy and they itched. I really wish I could have liked this product because it hasn't gone to use and is sitting in my bag. I am sad to say I will stay away from all drug store makeup except lip products. This eyeshadow is a product I regret buying.
I find with this eye shadow that if you use a great primer and literally smudge it in, it will stay put without creasing or flaking. I use it with other shadows as my "base" and use this as my "pop" of color. It really is a wonderful eye shadow! Just make sure you smudge quickly!!! I've also lightly wet my brush before applying and this helps a lot :-) The thicker you add it, the more chance of a flaky hot mess you'll get lol
Target did a very bad representing the vividness and boldness of the colors! My boyfriend bought me the Ivy Quad and it is very vibrant and bright! The blueish color is more of teal, blue green color! I love the quad I have and i plan to buy more! They are very pigmented! A very, very good purchase!

THE COLORS ARE AMAZING! AND THEY ARE SO BLENDABLE!
[...]Most days, I only do my eyes because they are my best feature. So I play around with a LOT of eye-shadows. I have almost the entire line for this product, [...]You simply need to use your brain and figure out how much of the pigment is good on your skin tone and complements your eye color. Some of the color palettes, I can go heavy on, whereas others, like the greens and blues, not so much because I'm a fair skinned Indian girl [...]. My skin color is more yellow than brown and my eyes are a DARK brown. So I only put on a light coat of the blue and green. In fact, I have the green one on right now and I love it (strangely enough, so does my mom). The key with eye-shadow is always about using the right amount and blending! You also need to keep the shape of your eyes in mind. You can find several tricks and tips for your specific eye shape on the web if you just do some research!On the whole...this eye-shadow series is fantastic! AND I HAVE TRIED using this dry as well as wet (which is an alternate way that this product is designed to be used). The wet look is not appropriate for the work place, however it would kick major [...] at ANY PARTY!!! :)Hope this helps!!!
