Review: Maybelline Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds Eyeshadow in 'Charcoal Diamonds'



Another great Maybelline eyeshadow palette, this time in simple variations of grey, black and white. I decided to buy this product because I don't really have a Maybelline shadow set that's just dedicated to these kind of charcoal shades, and so I'm hoping this will provide a good colour palette for a basic smoky eye.

Characteristics:

  • 5 Shades: Black, white, and a medium, light and dark grey.
  • All colours are shimmer tones.
  • Comes with a small sponge applicator, with one end thick and the other thin.

Positives:


  • A good range of charcoal hues that allows light and shade.
  • Good pigmentation for most colours.
  • It lives up to its 'Hyper Diamonds' name, as each shade shimmers beautifully.
  • Lovely packaging, especially the shapes of each shadow.

Negatives:


  • There are only four sides of the sponge applicator, but 5 shadows.
  • The white and light grey colours are almost transparent, so these can really only be used as highlights.

Overall, I would rate this product


Come back soon to see a tutorial using this eyeshadow palette :)

  2. Arr I wanted to buy this but because of my skin tone the lady told me to go for something else because apparently some of the shades act as highlighters.. and you've repeated it here.
    I do love it though!
    Can we see swatches?

    Great review :)

    1. Aw yeah I'm sorry! The two lightest shades are very translucent for some reason! The second photo is of swatches :) one with flash and one without. Sorry I just used my wrist, but I'll be posting an eye look with this palette in the next couple of days so check back to see how it looks on the eye :D
