Drugstore products will always be my favorite!! I have a close relationship with Maybelline, for it was the first brand I started using when I had put my initial steps in the beauty world. It’s affordability and good quality never seizes to impress me! I got my hands on the new CITY KITS face and cheek palette in URBAN LIGHT, have been using it for a week now and here is what I think!
Definitely a bright, fresh and spring-friendly packaging… The holographic border adds a fun element which I really like. Apart from good looks, talking of practicality, the palette doesn’t come with a brush and a mirror which makes it incomplete and therefore not my favorite. The palette consists of a blusher, highlighter, and 8 eyeshadows. Again, all the shades are shimmery and absolutely no mattes which I feel is a downside. I like to wear a matte eyeshadow in the crease, and have to reach out for a separate palette!
Quality and Pigmentation
The pigmentation of each and every product is really good… Maybelline has definitely come a long way. The texture feels really smooth and creamy and you do get a good color payoff even if you wear the eyeshadows without a primer. The eyeshadows have high shine and I absolutely love that, the two lightest shadows look stunning as an inner corner and brow bone highlight, they have a holographic touch.
The Blush is such a beautiful peach tone, again very pigmented and has good pickup on the brush.
The highlighter is gorgeous! A soft gold, which goes really well with the peach blush. The duo works great!
This palette all together is good for an everyday use, if you like soft subtle looks, this can be a good pick for you.
