Maybelline City Mini Palette in Downtown Sunrise Review


*purchased by me

Maybelline recently released several new eyeshadow palettes called the “City Mini” collection. I normally steer clear of drugstore eyeshadow; however, that bright pink shade really spoke to me, so I decided to try one in a moment of weakness.


There are six shades in the palette: three satin/matte shades and 3 shimmers. I think this is a good palette for someone who does the same thing daily, doesn’t want to spend a lot of money, and wants an occasional pop of color.


The lighter shimmers aren’t intense but they provide a beautiful sheen. The matte tan shade, the transition shade of the palette, is the weakest of the bunch. It is a little difficult to blend, but not impossible. The best shade in the palette is the hot coral with gold shimmer.


I really liked wearing this palette and was pleasantly surprised by it! It is also worth mentioning that these shadows last for over 12 hours with primer, because when I went to wash my face, they were still there looking fresh. For $10, this is a win!
