Budget Beauty with Maybelline New York

As you have noticed, I don’t take a lot of pictures of the products I write about. I feel more comfortable using stock photos but when I was looking online for a shot of MAYBELLINE NEW YORK’s Eye Studio Color Plus Eye Shadow Quad in Sapphire Siren, the photos I came across wouldn’t make anyone run out and buy this. The colors are just so flat looking and eh. See what I mean below? It’s a total case of it looks better in person.



All the colors are pretty shimmery but what I like is that the pigment seems to vary from color to color.  In the case of the Sapphire Siren palette shown here, from left you right, a shimmery white for under the brow and accenting around the eye area, teal and sapphire blue for the lid and black to line and contour. You can do a few different eye looks with just this quad as the colors are work nicely together. Choose from twelve different combos for $9.99 @

I want to get this color, as well as the purple palette, and I think there was a goldish one too that I want. I am usually hesitant to buy drugstore eyeshadows, but these seem promising to me.
