The only Maybelline eyeshadow that I LOVE. Will repurchase if the price isn't too bad. I purchased mine for $10 at Shooppers Drug Mart :/ the colors are highly pigmented, and stay on very long with a primer. Only down side is the packaging.. I liked the older packaging more. This one is alright, but it seems like Maybelline has cut down on the amount of product given for the new packaging... Any suggestions for an alternative of a cheaper price but same quality??
Too runny, wet, and applies unevenly... Takes a while to dry too, and once it does has a very dry and crusty feel on your eyes...

Black liners are my FAVOURITE. Specially this one:D. The application goes on very smooth, and is very soft on the eye. However, the only downside I can think of about this one, is it smudges and runs quite a bit. If this eyeliner didn't smudge so much and turn me into a panda, I would repurchase.
My FAVOURITE primer that I have ever encountered. I bought this from Sephora right after receiving some Too Faced Eyeshadows from my sister, along with a mini-travel sized primer. The primer worked amazing, and kept my eyeshadows in place for the whole day. Even when I was sweating like crazy from performing on stage !!! The only downsides of this was the smaller mini sized bottle started forming a gap on the bottle side, and it ended drying up :'( not to mention that if left standing for a while when you first buy it from the store, and not use it for a while, the product starts separating, and when you first squeeze the bottle, oil comes out ... Also, your lids can't have dry skin when using this primer.. It looks awful :( I will repurchase once my full sized primer runs out. <3
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Wear Eye Trio in Chocolate Mousse

The lighter base shade, along with the dark crease colour are my favorites from this eyeshadow trio. However, the lid colour does not show up on my skin tone at all, and just comes out as shimmer.. I would strong recommend using a good primer with these eyeshadows, because the staying power isn't that long.. It fades within a few minutes. I purchased this trio at Shoppers Drug Mart for about $10.. It's quite expensive. I'm not sure if the packaging is that great, because the older design seemed to have given you more product, whereas now the newer one cuts down on the lid and crease colour, and gives you a lot of the base eyeshadow. I will not repurchase, because of the price. Maybe I'll just find dupes for the base and crease shades.
