So recently(which is about a month/month-and-a-half) while looking around the counters at a beauty store, I saw these cute eyeshadow quartlets sparkling for me. They are the MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL DIAMOND EYESHADOW PALETTE. This is their 3D eye palette with dimensional top coat. Maybelline India has launched the all new range of ColorSensational eyeshadow quartlets/palettes. I picked on of them and here comes the review of it.


I picked up the TOURMALINE PURPLE eyeshadow palette.

Price:   INR 575/- for 2.4 g


  • Maybelline New York introduces the first-ever eye palette with a 3-dimensional top coat, the Color Sensational Diamond Eye Shadow.
  • It has amazing texture with three hues of pearl powder, one glitter and one matte powder to exclusively highlight your eyes. It is perfect to add just the right amount of glitter to make your eyes shine. The top coat is made with micro crushed pearls to give that alluring 3D finish. The eye shadow is available in 4 different pallete colors; tourmaline purple, rose quartz pink, sapphire blue and topaz gold.
  • Here’s why you’ll love it:
  • – It comes in 4 shades.
  • – Creamy powder texture for super smooth application and blending.
  • – Super soft double ended applicator for smooth blending.


Packaging:   The MAYBELLINE COLOR SENSATIONAL DIAMOND EYESHADOW PALETTE comes in a black colured small square cardboard box.This outer packaging made me buy this-silly me although. But the all new design and embossed artwork on the cardboard box is such an amazing work by Maybelline.On the box are the details described. Inside comes the palette with whole new packaging. The eyeshadow palette comes with 5 satiny-shimmery shades. It also includes a tiny dual ended sponge applicator which I don’t prefer to use.




Talking about the shades, it has 5 shades.

  • Shade A- Pearly White Highlighter
  • Shade B- Light Rosy pink Base shade
  • Shade C- Purpley Base shade again
  • Shade D- Black shimmery shade also used as Liner
  • Shade E- Top Coat

The above are the shade descriptions that are given on the box, but it is totally dependent on the user on how is he/she is going to use these shades. There is no particular order to follow for creating your own eye look.

These eyeshadows are somewhere inbetween medium-highly pigmented. The formula of the eyeshadows are very powdery and very easy to blend. Since all the shades are shimmers here, they do not look patchy or chalky. The fine texture of the shimmers doesn’t look any overpowering to the eyes. They give soft and subtle glow to the eyes. There are no major fallout issues with them. They do not crease, but after a good 5-6 hours they slowly fade away.

Here are the swatches-  From the left are Shades A,E,C,D and B.IMG_20160511_091536.jpg
