Burgundy Bar Palette by Maybelline

14 January 2018

Maybelline had some very trilling launches throughout 2017, but the one that caught my eye the most was the gorgeous Maybelline Burgundy Bar Eyeshadow Palette filled with burgundy, gold, rosey and bronze shades. It was pretty much love at first sight for me.

I’ve tried Maybelline’s other eyeshadow palettes which are very similar to this one that left me pretty unimpressed when it came to their overall quality, so I was curious to see how this one turned out.

Inside this nice and sturdy packaging you get 12 beautiful eyeshadows that are totally my vibe and are super creamy to the touch and when swatched on the hand. There are only 2 matte shades, one light and one dark brown in the palette, and they are nicely pigmented and blend so well on the eyes. When it comes to the rest of the eyeshadows they are all shimmers and have the same characteristics as the different kinds of NUDES palettes that Maybelline's been coming out with in the past, so there was no improvement there at all. What I mean is that when applied either with a finger or with a brush sprayed with some fixing spray, they give amazing pigmentation on the lid, but unfortunately that pigmentation doesn't last throughout the day at all, it just fades out gradually.

A good tip for you to know is that you need to apply some sort of eye primer on the eyes and a very thick layer too, so that the eyeshadows might last a bit longer and still have that nice pigment. Also be very patient with the shimmers, just take your time and it will pay off in the end.

If you’re familiar with working with your fingers, it’s well worth having a try at this palette to see if it works for you. If you’re an eyeshadow newbie who still feels more comfortable working with brushes, this might take a bit of getting used to. Although I wasn’t blown away, I think Maybelline’s eyeshadow formula is for sure improving. They’re worth keeping an eye on for future releases.

Give this palette a swatch in one of our drugstores and see what you think of it, and also ask some of the employees for their opinion on the palette before buying it because I noticed that most of them try out these products and can point you in the right direction when it comes to purchasing this.

For those of you who have tried this palette write down in the comments section below and tell me what was your experience like 😊

Till next time my loves,
