Maybelline Eyestudio Color Pearls Marbelized Eyeshadow

This is a product which I purchased when it came out, used it all and have recently purchased again!

I repurchased it in Bronze Blowout and decided to get Khaki Craze as well. They're about $8 in Canada, but I got them in the US for much cheaper (around $4-5).

When I purchased Bronze Blowout the first time, I used the dark brown a lot more than the marbelized gold/pink. The reason being that the solid colours in these duos are a lot smoother than the marbelized sides. You can see from the swatches that the green and brown in Khaki Craze and Bronze Blowout have much less fall out than the colours they are paired with.

It's nice that they paired coordinating colours together, with two different finishes, but I personally don't use the marbelized side much. They are a bit more difficult to work with (as they are more gritty), but they are useful if you want some glitter/sparkle.

Based on the solid colours alone, these duos are a great value and because the colours are rich and smooth, you'll likely get a lot of use out of them. Khaki Craze and Bronze Blowout are both wearable colours that can be worn day-to-day, but they can also be used in more dramatic ways by using the marbelized shades.

The packaging is sturdy and compact, though as you use up more of the product, the eyeshadow becomes less secure to the packaging and could crumble/break more easily.

  1. I haven't really paid attention to these marbelized shadows from maybelline but the swatches look really good.
