I always find it hard getting eyeshadows that I would wear on a daily basis. With some, the pigments are too intense or too weak that they take more effort to blend onto my eye with other colours that on a college day, I just don’t want to be rushing around.
So I decided to go on a little mission and find myself a decent sized palette that would fulfil my daily needs and found the Maybelline 24 Karat Eyeshadow palette and it looked so pretty with a variety of colour so I thought why not!
I adore the little cheat sheet on the back that tells me what colours to use because honestly, without it I wouldn’t have thought that some of the combinations in this palette could possibly work well. It gives you a nice and easy guide to which colours should go where as well, so for beginners in eyeshadow it’s a nice little addition.
The pigments aren’t great I have to say, and you really do have to poke at the colours to get enough on your brush before adding it to your eyes. Even the bolder colours need a bit of dabbing before showing up much. Saying that though, with darker colours it can be a blessing in disguise since you can’t really accidentally load your brush too much and darken your eye more than you’d have liked.
Like all eyeshadows, it comes with a dinky little brush which I will not be using. They’re too unprecise and when it comes to blending, you want a nice fluffy brush instead of the spongy heads this one comes with.
Overall, I love the colour combinations you can do with this palette, whether it’s for day to day use or for nights out it’s a good mixture and won’t get boring soon! The only issue I have is the pigment of the colours, but like I said, it may be a good thing since you escape the possibility of overdoing it on the darker colours.
