When I saw Maybelline EyeStudio Color Explosion Palettes, I knew I had to get one. The packaging is so cute! It reminds me of eyeshadow palettes from Japan. To be safe, as well as, I knew I would get the best out of these palette; I got the brown one. :X

My thoughts: I love neutral eye makeup, and was really excited to try this! The first thing I did is swatch the palette.
After swatching the palette, I was not too sure if I was into the colors. They seems so typical of other neutral palettes. There was nothing ordinary of this palette maybe except for the gold glittery color. Sometimes I feel this way about palettes until I work it's magic on my eyes. Here's two looks I came up with the palette.
Other than the colors, they're pretty medium pigmented and long lasting. It's actually not a bad palette. I'm just not into the colors which is odd since I love neutral eyeshadows. Maybe I'm getting out of neutral looks. Who am I kidding! :X
I also thought the second color from the top, the one that looks like a "V" in the palette, was hard to grab with an eyeshadow brush. It's easier with a sponge and crease brush.
* Cute packaging.
* Gold glitter eyeshadow; unique.
* Medium pigmentation.
* Long lasting.
* Hard to grab second color from the top with eyeshadow brush.
* Colors are not unique or special.
Would I repurchase: Maybe, if they have other colors I want.
