Maybelline Eye Studio Review

I went to Walgreens today and bought 2 of the Maybelline EyeStudio eyeshadow compacts. They were $9.79 a piece which I thought was alot for a drugstore product but I had 2 coupons that took $2.00 off of each one so they came out to $7.79.....thats more like it :) I bought Sapphire Siren and Copper Chic.
I posted swatches of both of these below

Ok I am a novice when it comes to makeup , I love it but I don't think it should be really hard to apply it. The eyeshadows were really light I had to go over the swatches a couple of times and they were really too powdery. I apllied sapphire siren .

Since I am still a novice at applying eyeshadow I actually went to the Maybelline website because they had tutorials on each kit with two different looks you could do with each one. The first one I tried was the high impact look

Please excuse my brows I need to do them lol!!
Then I tried the second look subtle chic below

I actually did both looks at the same time, left eye high impact and right eye subtle chic, I like the way the subtle chic came out. I don't think you can tell the difference but when I looked in the mirror I like the way the subtle chic looks.  I don't think I will be buying the other ones if they go on sale maybe:)

I bought the gold one it has this really rich brown that I LOVED. If you want more color impact wet your makeup brush a little to get a more intense color. I really like mine and will get the copper one you have and this other on with this pretty blue I liked

Thank you, I didn't think of wetting it! I have done I think its called foiling to some of my bare escentual eyeshadows but I totally forgot that I could have tried that , lol! And I did go looking for the gold one first bec it was the one I really wanted but they were out so thats why I got the copper one, now I know im going to have to try the gold one thank you again for the tip:)
