Review: Maybelline The City Mini Palette in Downtown Sunrise Review & Swatche

Thursday, July 20, 2017

Hello lovelies. If you have been to the drugstore lately and been in the makeup aisle you have probably come across tons of new makeup from Maybelline. They have a whole range of new eyeshadow palettes out too. As you know me Maybelline is one of my favorite brands in the drugstore, so I had to pick u some. I picked up two City Mini palettes, I will be reviewing the other in its own post. There are 7 different mini palettes in this collection so you have a whole range to pick up. The price is $7.99 - $9.99 depending on where you are getting them from. They are available every where now and also online at Ulta. 

Downtown Sunrise is a a very warm toned palette that has frosts and satin's in it. No matte shades in this palette, you will be needing to use a matte shadow. Or you can just create a shimmery look. The texture of these shadows is soft and glides on easily. They have tons of pigments and also blend easily. The frost shades have a little bit of fall out, but nothing that you can't wipe off easily. I love the warm toned gold in this palette, that shade is perfect for the lid color. I wore this palette without a primer and tested it out for the whole day. The shadows did stay on, no budging and no creasing. If you want to use a primer you can always apply a Maybelline color tattoo underneath. Over all I am super impressed with this eyeshadow mini palette. It is great for everyone and the price is great too. Also very easy to store or travel with. 

Let me know in the comments below your thoughts on this product and also if you have tried it or will be picking it up. Thank you for reading and have a great day.

  1. I might need to check out maybelline. Because this palettes is very pretty.


  2. The shades look really pretty, but I do wish there were some good crease shades in there.
