This eyeshadow is good for a drugstore brand. I wear it to school every once in a while, the colors look more blue than gray to me. It goes about 2 hours with out creasing (nyx eyeshadow base) and then I have to touch it up, it probably lasts a lot longer for other people since I have REALLY oily eyelids.
i love these for going out. first i apply UDPP then blend the silver and the grey and they make a nice almost smokey shade that looks dramatic, but not too overpowering on my pale, cool toned skin.
The silver is too flakey/chunky.
Too bad, because the colours are really nice, and fairly pigmented.
I'll keep using it, but I won't rebuy it.
I'm lucky I bought this on sale for 4$ instead of 9$...I would've felt ripped off for 9$ :P
this product has 'potential'. it looks like a really nice palette but the quality of the powders are poor. the dark grey is a great color but the other ones (the silver and the white) are too sheer to blend properly. you can try to pack on the light colors but it's too chalky/powdery to really stay in place.
i wouldn't buy this again. there are other products out there that are much easier to use.
This thing is crap. The silver doesn't show up and the white is impossible to blend. The grey color was also disappointing. I don't think I'll ever buy any eyeshadows from maybelline again.
Edit: I gave this trio another try. I tried it wet and... OMG! They were SO vibrant! The pigment was GREAT! I'm so glad I gave it another try.
I bought this product a while back, hoping to achieve a cute smokey eye look to go with plum lips, but it didn't quite work out. The colors LOOK pretty, but they are hard to blend, and seem to fade as the day goes on. You basically have to coat layers of the lid color because it doesn't come on in one swipe. So, no thanks, won't buy again.
I've been using this for almost a month now. I love it! The only things that I really don't like about it is it's a litle too shimmery. The last negative thing I have to say about it is that you really have to blend it in or it'll be blotchy.. NOT CUTE! but over all I LOVE it.
I got this during my obsession with smokey eyes. I thought this combination of greys would be subtle and sexy. The texture of the eyeshadow is okay. The lasting power could definitely be better, but it is d/s. The huge problem for me was the colors. They looked really terrible with my skin tone. I looked like a zombie. Granted, smokey eyes aren't the most flattering look for me, but seriously, it totally clashed with the rest of my face. I would never buy this again because now I know better. I guess if you're more cool toned, this might work for you? Don't quote me on that, though.
I have the older version of this eye trio. probably about 6 years old. From the picture posted, mine looks a bit different. i gave the older version a 3 because of the lasting power. It lasts about 1/2 a day if that. The colors are good together and do blend well. I like to do a daytime smokey eye with this palette. I'm assuming that the new version is alot better though. The pigments might be slightly different as well.
I haven't been too fond of Maybelline's eyeshadow trios. I've tried the Chocolate Mousse trio and the Crown Jewels trio, and I was far from impressed: The colors weren't very pigmented and they were VERY difficult to blend. Also, the Crown Jewels trio made me look like I had pink eye. Gross.
I decided to give Maybelline another chance when I saw this palette, the Impeccable Greys trio (because I was drawn to the colors). The shadows in this trio are quite pigmented and they blend pretty well. For a drug store brand, I think that these shadows are top-notch. In other words, I love this trio!
This is my essential eyeshadow palette for smokey eyes. I'm really in love with all three of the colors, especially the "brow bone" shadow. The brow bone shadow is one of my favorite shadows to use as a highlighter.
I'll be purchasing this trio again. Highly recommended!
