I’ve always wanted to try one of Maybelline’s eyeshadow quattro’s but for some reason I never really bought one. Like I mentioned yesterday I won a give away on Eline’s blog and one of the products I won was a Maybelline quad. I was so excited to try it out and I’m glad I finally got to do so. Today I’ll be reviewing it. If you’re interested in finding out whether I ended up loving it or not, keep on reading!
The Maybelline Silk Glam Eyeshadow Palette comes in a pretty basic packaging. The bottom is black, the lid is clear and on the bottom it says “Maybelline”. Even though I’m not a huge fan of the packaging, I do like that you’re able to see the colors of the shadow through the lid.
The eyeshadow palettes contains 4 colors and comes with a double ended sponge applicator. All colors in this palette are either purple or have some a purple shimmer in them. I really glad I got this palette since I absolutely love purple as an eyeshadow color, but I didn’t have any purple colors like these yet.
The first color in the palette is a very pretty icy white highlight color. Because it’s shimmery like that I love using it in my inner corners. It makes me look a lot more awake than I actually feel like I am. Underneath that color is a very pretty pale lilac color with that same iciness. I really like this one. I think this color could be perfect as eyelid color.
Next up is another light eyelid-proof color. It’s a little less pink than the one before that. This is a more blueish purple color, while the one before that is more of a pinky purple. I really like that there are two different eyelid-proof colors in here so you can switch up between the two.
The last color in the palette is a darker purple one. It’s another blueish purple color and it again has that iciness to it. I really like this purple. I think it would look really pretty with all colors in this palette, but also in combination with neutral shades.
Pigmentation wise I’m kind of impressed. I didn’t really know what to expect because I’ve never tried Maybelline eyeshadows before, but I’m pleasantly surprised. The colors have a decent amount of pigmentation and are all easy to work with. You can tell that they are a bit powdery, but that doesn’t make them less pretty. I think especially on the swatch you can see how pretty these colors would look together. I really like it.
Over all I would say I’m just impressed by this palette. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but in the end I think it’s a great palette. The colors are gorgeous and the pigmentation is impressive. If I feel like using something else than my usual earthy shadows, I would definitely gravitate towards this gorgeous quad.
That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and let me know if you have any experience with Maybelline eyeshadows!

Ik ben ook wel onder de indrukn van het pigemnt en de kleuren. Ik heb eigenlijk ook nooit eerder een palette gehad van Maybelinne.
mooi palette ♥
Ik vind het super gaaf dat dit soort kleuren zo mooi gepigmenteerd zijn. Ik vind roze/paarstinten vaak zo zwakjes!
