Maybelline Color Sensational Diamond Eye Shadows in Topaz Gold | Review + Swatches

When it comes to eyeshadows for beginners, Maybelline has a strong game. This Maybelline Color Sensational Diamonds Eye Shadow Palette is the only eye shadow palette you need to create basic daytime and nighttime looks. The shade of this palette is Topaz Gold and it contains a collection of golden and warm brown colors. There are 3 other palettes available in this range but I think that the shades of this one are the most flattering for Indian skin tones.

This tiny palette contains 5 shades, a light highlight shade, another shiny highlight shade, a golden brown, a deep brown, and a matte black. All the shades except the black one are shimmery. I am very happy that this palette includes a matte black color because I feel that a matte black is perfect for a smoky eye. The colors are a bit powdery but do apply quite evenly on the eyes. The pigmentation of all the colors except the lightest one is quite good but not so intense that you cannot blend your mistakes. The lightest color is a dud in my opinion because it doesn’t really show up on my skin.

The packaging of this eye shadow palette is very cute. You can easily fit it into your pocket. It also comes with a brush which is pretty useless, as is the case with most brushes that come with eye shadows. I would recommend using a wet brush or your fingers to apply these eye shadows, for the maximum color payoff.

This eye shadow palette is priced at INR 575, which is incredibly reasonable for 5 shades (4 of which are amazing). I could not do an eye look with this palette because my eyes are protesting these days but they pretty much swatch the same on the hand. This is one basic eyeshadow palette that can help you create so many different looks! Highly recommended for those on a budget or those who simply choose not to spend too much on makeup.
