Maybelline seashore frost eyeshadow- Review & Swatch

Hi lovelies,So what’s going on…Yee very happy and exited about the CWG being held in New Delhi this year….I’ll surely go there and is anyone else also going…..Hope we’ll meet each other!!He He!Anyways yesterday i went to shop a lil(yeah not much) and I got two three things out of which one was a Maybelline eyeshadow set- Seashore frosts shades. It consists of four shades plus two applicators. I’ve got two three more Maybelline shadows which weren’t that nice so I hesitated a little before buying this one…But the shades attracted me so I did get it. This is kind of a full eye makeup set…OK let’s go on.1. The first one is meant for the lid and. It is blue with a slight tinch of purple in it. I really like this shade coz it’s quite pigmented and shows up well. You can get a subtle look on using this. It’s good so i would give it a like.
2. The second one is for the crease, pinkish purple or better say mauve in color. Not as pigmented as the first one. Applying this along with the blue one gives a casual look. I like this color..Dull purple.So this deserves a like and even a bit of dislike.
3. The third one meant for the brow bone is not shimmery but matte in nature. Baby pink in color,it is not as pigmented as the rest and I literally have to dig it out a little to show it up…..Applying these three you get a classic look. Sounds interesting!!! I don’t like it much so in my opinion it gets a dislike.
4. This last one is a sea green shade and I love this one as it is nicely pigmented, shows up, shimmery…..So a like. Applying all these in their respective places you get a dramatic look…Hmm let’s try that too.
The two applicators are comfortable to use.I love the packaging.It cost me only Rs 240($5.25 approx.) which is very reasonable coz the shades in it are the ones which we quite often are the swatches( My silly camera is not working well so the shades are looking very dull which they are not)So overall this set did not disappoint me and I’m really eager to try on the looks which I’ll surely share with you guys….Ah love this world of blogging!!!So ladies has anyone else also tried this….If yes which other shades do you have???Which shades out of these do you like or dislike??? Take care and goodbye for now.

    beautiful palette..I like e colours

    I've heard really great things about Maybelline quads. So many people rave about the "Natural Smokes" quad b/c it's great e/s and also for filling in brows. I want to buy it ^_^.

  5. October 1, 2010 / 09:21

    I saw this quad too, but I didn't get it. I don't know why, but every maybelline quad has atleast 1 colour that is too light and chalky!

    But I can't wait to see you do a look with this 🙂

    It looks lovely! I have Chai Latte & Time for Wine quads from this range. They are nice, but I wish they had better pigmentation. They don't show up well without a primer..

    looks good. I am always wary of maybelline as I have never had a good experience with their stuff yet.

    @Tanveer: Hey i'll try those also. Guess you are very much right…Sad thing I'm without a primer these days. Can you suggest any?
    Georgia: Yeah me too.Anyways thanks.

    I like the sea green of the last shade very much, I find colours like this beautiful, but they tend to look a bit insipid on me – will you do an FOTD with them at all? Thanks for the post. Jan

    Awhhhh.. I love pastel soft colors! (: But I'm a make-up dummy, so I don't even have this sort of palette! Maybe you can post tips on applying them next time?

    Have a good one, darl (:

    this looks like a lovely palette! xo

  18. October 3, 2010 / 13:00

    Awesome 🙂 The last colour is my favourite 🙂

  19. October 3, 2010 / 14:30

    Pretty shades! I love to carry with me quad eyeshadow palettes while I'm travelling, so convenient to have four shades in a single case, saves a lot of space and time to apply eye makeup on the go xoxo

  20. October 3, 2010 / 15:11

    Love the mauve 🙂

  21. October 3, 2010 / 16:07

    Hello, darling!

    I am sooo jealous you're going to the CWGs! I'm just watching the opening ceremony, it's breath taking! I wish I was in Delhi right now! 🙁

    I've not tried this quad, I'm not sure I've seen this in store. Love the look of it though. Why not do a face of the day using it and do a blogpost on it? 🙂 xx

    hey dear thanku so much for all the lovely comments 🙂

    this looks great!! can't make out much pigmentation though but i guess it might be the lightning fault or something.

    lucky you get to be at CWG's 🙂 my bf's really good friend is representing the swimming team. I wish i could see him compete live !!

  23. October 4, 2010 / 12:30

    hey.. 🙂 thanks for being so nice!! 😀
    i like the colours.. 🙂
    and have super fun at the CWG!! 😀
    oh and following you too.. :):)

  24. October 4, 2010 / 14:42

    nice review, love your blog 🙂

  25. October 4, 2010 / 15:20

    Such pretty pastel colours:)


  26. October 5, 2010 / 08:07

    They look so pretty! I have yet to embrace bolder eyeshadows, haha.

  27. October 6, 2010 / 14:57

    the colors look gorgeous ! <3

  28. October 7, 2010 / 23:24

    Ooh! I debated getting this one but didn't end up doing it. I'm happy to see the pigmentation is decent.

    'Tinch!' Hee hee, I love that word! XD

    I'm actually working on a post with swatches of all my Maybelline quads! ^_^ If I were to suggest any more, I'd say get any of the 'Smokes' series! They are seriously fabulous. Did you know Maybelline reformulated their shadows? The older ones I have are full of the suck, too, but the newer ones are awesome! 🙂

  29. October 8, 2010 / 05:06

    Thanks dear for your sweet you all.

  30. October 9, 2010 / 15:46

    I haven't tried this palette but the colors look so lush and pretty 🙂
