Maybelline The City Mini Palette Review & Make-up Look

Some items in this post were provided for review.

Hi everyone!

I have something different to share with you in this post, a lovely eyeshadow palette and makeup look! A while ago, I received the Maybelline City Mini Palette in 410 Chill Brunch Neutrals in a Voxbox from Influenster. I’m really liking this palette, so I decided to share it with you.

Painted Fingertips | Maybelline The City Mini paletteThis is a neutral palette, perfect for everyday looks. I tend to prefer playing with bright colours on my eyes, but it’s great to have something like this on hand for when I need to keep things more toned down. It is packaged in a cardboard sleeve with the plastic palette inside. It feels pretty sturdy for now, hopefully it stays that way! It doesn’t come with any applicator, which is fine with me as I’d use a brush anyway.

Painted Fingertips | Swatches - Maybelline The City Mini paletteI did swatches on my arm using an eyeshadow applicator and I was really impressed with how soft and silky the shadows were! The lightest shade is on the far right, it was the least pigmented and also really blended in with my skintone. I love the second-left (top right on the palette) – it is gorgeously shimmery and a little cooler than the others, which is perfect for my tastes and my skin tone!
