Maybelline Chai Latte Eyeshadow Quad review

    And, we're back! I haven't posted anything during the entire summer, so excuse the really long hiatus. My Dolly wink eyeshadow quad just broke and I wanted to find a more cheaper dupe for it. I picked up the Maybelline Chai Latte eyeshadow quad at my local drugstore and I gotta say, it's my go to eyeshadow now! It's great for day and night makeup.

Pigmentation: ***
-It's fairly pigmented, but not transparent. You can see it when you apply it, but like any other eyeshadow, it'll fade throughout the day. I suggest you use the Wet n Wild fergie eyeshadow primer (my favorite eye primer right now) or any other eye primer to really amplify the color.

Quality: *****
-I really like the texture of these eyeshadows. They're really nice and smooth to apply to the eyes, blend out nicely, and gives a really nice and natural effect to your eyes for day time makeup.

Price: *****
-It's not as cheap as the wet n wild eyeshadows, or the elf eyeshadows, but the price point is very affordable for anyone on a budget. I suggest going to Target or Walgreens to really get it at a cheaper price. 

Packaging: ****
-It's pretty simple, but it looks sleek and professional looking. I really like the two sponge tip applicators that are included because they really pack on color. It's good for on the go if you don't have enough space in your makeup bag to carry makeup brushes. But, something I don't really like is how the eyeshadow gets all over the inside, making it look like a mess. 

OVERALL: I'd recommend this eyeshadow palette. It's pretty cheap and has a decent amount of pigmentation. I really like this eyeshadow palette and I've been using it a lot, and my a lot I mean everyday.

These are the pictures for the Maybelline Chai Latte eyeshadow. It is inexpensive but has fairly reasonable quality that is good for both day and night. Picture taken by Kelly Leem. Captioned/Collaged by Yealin Lee.
