Maybelline EyeStudio - What It Did For Me

A few weeks ago I received a BIG and I do mean BIG surprise in the mail... What was it? This...



The whole new Maybelline EyeStudio line was mine to play with!
What was inside? This...



I swatched the duo shadows, here is Lawless Lavender #10 and Khaki Craze #30.



Then I swatched one of the Quads below is 'Give me' #05.




All the shadows in the line are either shimmery or glittery. If you love sparkle this is these are the shadows for you.

I found the duos sort of blended together once on the eye and the color difference couldn't be seen (see eye pic below). The quads were too sparkly and just not for me. When applying them on others I found the glitter often fell onto their cheeks which was annoying to get off so I actually prefer the duo's over the quads for this reason.

I tested out Khaki Craze, brown gel liner and curling 2 step XXL Pro mascara on myself and this is what I got...



The Brown gel liner applied smoothly and with ease. I wouldn't recommend using the brush that comes with it as I found it way too stiff and made applying the gel more difficult then it needed to be. A good angle liner brush works perfectly with this product.

The mascara's were all double sided with step 1 doing different things from taming your lashes to building them with microfibers, Step 2 ranged from adding intense color to brushing on extensions... Ive been using the black and purple one that is for curling lashes. Step one is a white primer and step 2 is the intense color with a curved brush...

At first I wasn't sure what to think of this mascara.. The 2 steps are fine when I'm not in a rush but seems like a waste of time when I am.
The curved brush isn't my favorite and as with most brushes in this shape this one was hard to keep far enough away from my lashes that it didn't get all over my lips. After a few days of use I finally got the hang of it and I actually don't mind it now... Not sure if it will be a repurchase though.

Over all I thought the line was extensive but lacked any matte shadows which for me is important. The amount of glitter in the Color Pulsh Quads made them impractical for me and for use on clients but could be fun for a night out. The mascaras seem great if your a 2 stepper kinda gal. The liners were easy to use and I'm sure could also be worn as a shadow base all over the lid.

If you are in the mood to try something new and fun give Maybelline's EyeStudio a chance and see how you enjoy it ;)

I use some of these products on my clients because I love color. That's whats keeps this business exciting.

I really didn't like the quads, they were too shimmery especially the sapphire one.
