Maybelline Expert EyeStudio - Give Me Gold

Don't we all love a bargain and with Christmas and the holiday season coming up, we need all the help available in finding great quality products that not only won't break the budget but will make fabulous gifts for some lucky ducks (or a sweet treat for yourself).

Maybelline Expert EyeStudio Quad - Give Me Gold

Ingredients listing
  • 4 thoughtfully co-ordinated colours in a slimline plastic compact that can easily be thrown into the travel makeup bag for on-the-go applications and touch ups. 
  • Shades include a champagne beige, golden yellow, copper-bronze and a mid earthy brown. All shades except the copper-bronze contain fine irridecent shimmer which gives it the sparkly look while the copper-bronze is more a metallic frost finish. The palette may not be for you if you don't like shimmer but who doesn't like a bit of shimmer?
  • These colours work so well together and definitely neutral enough to wear to work during the day but can be intensified with using a wet brush/applicator for bolder looks at night. The copper-bronze is my favourite for all over lid colour with the brown for the crease work. 
  • The texture is smooth and buttery soft, it really was a dream to apply and blend with. 
  • Pigmenation was rich and quite long lasting even without primer. This silk infused formula would definitely give the higher end products out there a run for their money. What's best is that they are available in 12 different shades so there's almost endless possibilities with creating different looks. 
Give Me Gold in natural light, no primer

Rating: 9/10. RRP A$16.95 at Priceline and leading pharmacies. Even more a bargain when they are on sale.

Do you like this cheap and cheerful post? Let me know and if interest is there, I'll do a series of them for holiday gifting ideas.
