Maybelline Diamond Glow Eye Shadow 04 Ocean Blue- Review & EOTD:

Hello Ladies,

From the day I have started my blog, I have been posting about all great products, but now it’s time to know about a product which has really disappointed me from the day I have purchased it.



About Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyeshadow 04 Ocean Blue:

Glow you eyes with diamonds with the creamiest powder shadow ever launched by Maybelline NY!
The most glowing diamond effect in 4 simple steps
Exclusive technology with gem-like sparkles that do not crush

Price: 450 INR

Quantity: 2.5g



My experience with Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyeshadow 04 Ocean Blue:

Packaging: I love the packaging, it’s rectangular in shape with black base with silver outline and transparent cover. The quality is great and looks very chic and sturdy. Inside, it’s divided into 4 parts having the four shades and a dual ended applicator, one end has a big sponge and the other has a smaller sponge. The applicator is of great quality and very efficient.





Shades: It has four shades, 1 highlighter color, 2 medium colors and 1 accent color. The highlighter shade is pearly white with minute shimmers in it, the medium shades are sky blue in color, one a bit darker than the other and the accent shade is dark navy blue with silver and blue shimmers in it. All the 4 shades have good amount of shimmer in them and maybe that’s the reason Maybelline has named it Diamond Glow.



Texture, Pigmentation & Staying Power: I never thought that these quads will be so poor in texture and pigmentation and also in the staying power part.



The 3 light shades are horrible in all the three points and have a tremendous fall out during application. They are very powdery in texture. The dark blue shade is the only one which is better among the four. It doesn’t have fallout and is pigmented too. The staying power though is horrible.

As you can see in my hand swatch, I have wiped with a finger and the eye shadow is gone, even in my eotd, the fallout is very much visible all around the eye area.



Pros of Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyeshadow 04 Ocean Blue:
  • Superb stylish packaging
  • Great quality applicator

 Cons of Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyeshadow 04 Ocean Blue:
  • Fall out
  • Powdery texture
  • Low in pigmentation
  • Less staying power
  • Can spoil the eye make up

Rating: 2/5 (points given only keeping the packaging in mind)

Final Thoughts: I had never expected a dud from Maybelline.

Will I re-purchase and will recommend?

No please, may be the other shades will be better but the texture and all is just horrible.


Love,
Navneet.
