Quick reviews of random picks from the vanity...
|#50 Taupe Temptress|
$7.99 (at Target)
I've always heard great things about these quads from Maybelline but for some reason I never picked one up until now. I picked up this quad in Taupe Temptress from Target for $7.99. I'm sucker for anything taupe or eggplant so I had high hopes for this palette.
|in order as above|
Sparkly white shade (very flaky texture)
Sparkly rose shade (not very pigmented)
Sparkly taupe shade
Sparkly eggplant shade (appeared like more of a weird brown/grey shade on the eye)
- nice shade selection (I love a good taupe/eggplant eye combo)
- pretty, sparkly finish (in the pan)
- mediocre pigmentation
- flaky texture
- large amount of fall out
- shimmery/sparkly finish did not translate onto the eye (the sparkle just fell out onto my cheeks leaving me with a basic satin finish eye look)
- finished eye look appeared muddy (the shadows just blended together, leaving me with no definition and a boring, bland, grey-ish eye look)
Not impressed. This quad left me with a "nothing special" eye look and sparkly cheeks. People generally seem to love this line from Maybelline but I obviously picked a dud. I will probably try another quad from this line in the future but not for a while...not until I get over the disappointment of Taupe Temptress.
Would I Repurchase?
