Maybelline Hyper Diamonds Eyeshadow

Hi Everyone!~

Before I start, Sorry for not posting for the past 2 days.

I've been really busy and tired!~ I hope I can post 3 posts today since it's Friday.

I thought of watching TVD before doing my blog post. But I couldn't load the show.. I think it's a sign~~ It's trying to tell me to finish blogging before watching it. If not I'll probably fall asleep like the previous time...XP

Alright let's get started!~

On Wednesday, Watsons was having a private member sales( I think that's what it's call). Since my lessons ended early, and I can avoid the peak hour crowd, I decided to drop by to get some daily necessities( there's nothing interesting except for the new makeup remover I got and the eyeshadow quad).

Since there isn't really many actual makeup or skincare items, I thought it wouldn't be appropriate to do a haul for you guys. So I shall show you the Maybelline quad that I got there in this post!!~

PS. like mentioned, I got a new makeup remover, I'll try out for 2 weeks and shall do a review on it some time later!!~ So far, after using for 2 days, I have been loving it!!~

Alright!!~ Let's get started with the eyeshadow quad!!~

Maybelline New York Hyper Diamonds Eyeshadow

I was watching Sunny, sunnydahye on YouTube mentioning about this product. I'm not sure if I got the same shade as her, but I thought this shade, out of all that was at Watsons looks like the one that I'll get the most use out of.

Sunny was raving about this quad and how she resist herself from buying it, and always going to the store to swatch it over and over again before she got it.

So I thought of trying one out myself, I swatched all the colours at the store and this is my fav~

And the shade I got in is BR-1

For those who don't have makeup brushes, fear not!~ There is a sponge applicator in the quad.
It comes with a dual-ended sponge, one rounded about slim.
This sponge can easily do a simple eye look. PS. I've tried using it!~ HEHHEH!~

This is how the shadows are in the quad.
I like the most colours in this quad, you can do a smokey eye or a everyday simple eye look without much hassle. Something I'll bring on a trip~

The only thing I don't really like about this quad is the gold at the bottom.
It only has a little shimmers in it, hardly any pigmentation, which disappointed me.

As you ca tell, all of them are shimmery colours, even for the darkest brown on the far right. So if you're looking for matte colours, then this is not what you're looking for.

As you can tell, the gold colour, 2nd from the right, hardly has any colour to it, all you can really see is the gold shimmers on it and hardly any base colour. It might be what it's suppose to look like, but I was hoping for the colour to be the same as it is in the pan.

My Thoughts,
After using it a couple of times.

I feel that this quad is really suitable for people who want to try applying eye makeup the first time. 
This quad is neutral and it is very easy to work with.

What I like about this product, This product is very compact. So you can pop it into your makeup bag and bring it along with you in case you want to do a smokey eye for a night date.

I like the pigmentation and the colours in the quad too. It shades are all neutral and not too dark, which compliments my skin tone pretty well. I can use the 3 shades in the middle to do a everyday simple eye look, within 2-3minutes and when I want to do a more intense eye look, I can use the darkest shade, on the top, to achieve the smokey eye effect!!~

The colours are not too intense, so when you make mistakes, you can easily correct it without removing the entire eye makeup.
Even if you leave it there and not do anything about it, it still looks fine.

What I don't like about this product, it's the gold shimmery colour, at the bottom, it hardly has any pigmentation to it. I try apply on and build the colour up, it doesn't really build well and it has a ton of fall outs in the end. Kind of disappointing.

Would I recommend this? Yes I would!~ I think it's a good eye shadow quad to bring around and also for beginners who want to wear eye makeup but don't know where to start from or what colours to choose.

This retails for SGD$19.90 at our local Watsons and Guardian Stores

  1. You don't have to blog everyday! The majority of bloggers don't blog everyday. It's tiring for you and for those reading, cos some don't really have time to read everyday. Plus the quality of ur posts can be better then. :) Just a suggestion, since u seem super tired!

    1. Hi,

      I don't really know what to say ( ps. I'm not really good with words)
      But I really appreciate the advise, suggestion and concern(:
