Maybelline tone on tone eyeshadow Bonnie on Clyde review
Today, I’ve a new launch to review from Maybelline- an eyeshadow stick with two shades!
Maybelline tone on tone eyeshadow stick is a first-of-its-kind two-toned eyeshadow bar that creates the hottest eye makeup look in one simple swipe. Its two complementary creamy hues melt onto the lids easily and add distinct definition to the eyes. The two shades, dark and light, can be used along the lash line as well as the mobile lid or inner corner of the eye. A great option for those who are constantly on-the-go and looking for quick, fuss-free application.
My experience with Maybelline tone on tone eyeshadow Bonnie on Clyde
Packaging: The eyeshadow stick comes in a sleek black tube with the brand name written on the front. The price and shade name were mentioned on a plastic seal that came along with it. The shade name isn’t mentioned anywhere on the packaging. As you can see, some eyeshadow does peek out and it’s because it doesn’t twist all the way in. So, be careful while opening and closing it.
The cross-section between the two eyeshadows is a straight line which is helpful to get an even application. I do wish that the dark shade had even lesser space because on my small eyes, it goes across as a thick eyeliner which doesn’t look good on me. The thickness makes my eyes look even smaller.
Texture: The texture of Maybelline tone on tone eyeshadow Bonnie on Clyde is thin and quite creamy. It goes on smoothy on the eyelids as well as on the eye corners, when tilted. You can blend the eyeshadow just with your fingers but I use a brush as I have super oily eyelids.
Pigmentation: Me not likey. In the first swipe, it goes almost sheer. Even after I have gone over with 3-4 swipes (which btw is hard work given the square shape and reminds me of compass stationary), I can still see a lot of skin underneath it. Dusky beauties, stay away! This will be just a sheer wash of colour on your eyes. Might even look ashy. Dunno. Let me know if you have tried it.
It swatches better on my arm than on my eyes.
Shade: Maybelline tone on tone eyeshadow Bonnie on Clyde consists of a light gold and a champagne gold.
Staying power: Poor. It sinks into my eyelid creases within an hour itself. When used beneath powder eyeshadows, I still don’t see a considerable difference.
Ease of use: It’s not very practical because of the square shape. But since there’s not a very distinct line between both the shades, a different angle on the same place doesn’t make much difference. You can also use both of them separately.
I think you’re better buying Sugar cosmetics eyeshadow quad by spending Rs.150 more.
You might like Maybelline tone on tone eyeshadow Bonnie on Clyde if:
– You’re always in a hurry and just want a light swipe of eye makeup.
– You are a makeup beginner and don’t want to go through the hassle of blending.
– You don’t mind constant touch-ups.
– You don’t have oily eyelids.
– You are into extremely natural eyeshadow finish.
Sadly, this product is not for me. Both the pigmentation and staying power are a let-down. I like the concept though.
