Maybelline Eye Studio Spring 2017*

'It's all in the eyes. And the possibilities are endless. Demure daytime looks. Deep drama night moves. Subtle lines and definition, smokey vibes, custom brow looks, classic tones or a shot of color. Eyeshadow and eyeshadow primers, eyeliner, brows, and mascara collections designed to transform your look in the blink of an eye.'

For their Spring 2017 campaign, Maybelline launched two new products that rolled out in January. The Colossal Big Shot Mascara ($8.49 U.S.D) is a new one coat volumizing mascara where in a consumer panel survey, 8/10 saw root to tip volume instantly. The 24karat Nudes Palette ($11.99 U.S.D.) is a 12-pan neutral palette featuring shimmery gold, bronze, and copper shadows.

Colossal Big Shot Mascara

The wavy bristles of this mascara is said to maximize the delivery of the formula to lashes which I do agree and really like! It catches the tiniest lash hair without me having to go over it like how I usually would. I really like using this mascara for my bottom lashes!

24karat Nudes Palette

I've seen these mass brands launching shadow palettes and to be quite honest, they don't appeal to me. The 24karat Nudes Palette is said to have a silky texture but I think otherwise. I find the shadows to be dry and chalky - even with the use of a primer, you'd have to work with packing the shadows on for any color to really show.

Master Precise Liner

My favorite type of eye liner will always be a gel liner versus a pen liner. I find the Master Precise Liner applicator a bit scratchy which did not give me smooth strokes when applying the product to my eyelids. Because of the scratchy applicator, it was cumbersome to work with and when flicking the pen to create my wing, the product skipped a bit and so I ended up going back a few times.

My favorite Maybelline product out of the three is the Colossal Big Shot Express Mascara. This is definitely on the list of my drugstore makeup favorites! The price points of all these are affordable and won't break the bank - so if you're curious to get these items, you should definitely give them a try and see what is your favorite and works for you!

  1. The mascara has been the only product from this group that has interested me, so I'm glad you like it! The Nudes palettes that they keep coming out with are very hit or miss to me, and I'm not interested in them anymore.

  2. Hi Lauren! Let me know if you get a chance to use the mascara! It's definitely a must try! I've heard mixed reviews on the palettes too, thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
