Maybelline Eye Studio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow ($9.99) Rich color. Smooth feel.
Now silk makes shadow new again. Our exclusive formula with silk pigments creates the ultimate shadow texture and luminosity.
I kept seeing the ads for these new shadows in magazines and got so curious about them. I jumped at the chance when there was a BOGO sale. I originally got Mad Mauve and Pink Persuasion. I say “originally” because as soon as I went home, I tried them out and immediately fell in love with them. I went right back to the store and grabbed all of them.
Yes, the eyeshadows are pricey for a drugstore, but they perform so well. The eyeshadows are very pigmented and easily blendable. What I love about these quads is that the shadows are so silky, smooth they are almost creamy. I was afraid the colors would give too much shimmer, but they didn’t. It’s more of a sheen shimmer instead of a glittery shimmer.
I highly recommend this. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone crazy over a drugstore product.

Why You’ll Love It
This eye shadow and liner cools as it colors. Bold and defining formula is enriched with aloe, cucumber and glycerin.
This was actually one of the very first Maybelline products I ever bought. In fact, it was one of the very first makeup products I ever bought. The pencil is really fat, so if you’re hoping to using it as an eyeliner, good luck. You can use it as an eyeliner, but you’re just going to end up with an extremely thick line. I used this as an eye shadow. I would apply it over my eyelid and then blend it outward. It goes on very soft with very minimal tugging. If I am going to use this shadow liner as an eyeliner, I only use it to line my lower lash line. It’s perfect for that smudgy smoky eye look. As long as I use this with some sort of base or primer, it stays put. Definitely give this a try, you may end up liking it.
