Review: Maybelline Eyestodio Color Explosion Luminizing Eyeshadow (10 Amethyst Ablaze)

• Sophisticated color, ignited by an exclusive luminizer, reveals amazing color highlights.
• Explosive pigments sweep on for the truest color payoff. Exclusive luminizer unleashes a surge of color.
• Ophthalmologist-tested. Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

Let me start by saying I’m a sucker for purple eyeshadow, and these did not disappoint. The shadows were nicely pigmented. They have a soft and smooth texture and blended well. All of the shadows have a shimmer to them, the lightest shade on the bottom is more of a frost. I found the glitter shade interesting; it has silver and rainbow holographic glitter which looks a little drastic in the pallet but when blended out is a really pretty glitter. I like how the shadows can go from a day to night look just by adding the glitter on top of the look. I enjoy the mix of purples with a grape shade and a plum/ wine shade and the lighter shades on more of the pink side.
