Maybelline New York Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Copper Brown Review & Swatches


Copper brown has always been my favorite shade when it comes to eye shadows. It is one particular shade that I can carry easily and comfortable without looking too simple. It looks elegant on eyes and instantly brightens up the eye area. Today I am going to discuss my experience with Maybelline New York Diamond Glow Eye Shadow ’01 Copper Brown’.

MBT says-
Maybelline New York Diamond Glow Eye Shadow ’01 Copper Brown’ comes in a black eye shadow palette with a sturdy clear flip top lid. The lid snaps shut satisfactorily and there is no fear of it being getting messed around in a makeup bag. The packaging is quite lightweight and fits easily in my small makeup bag. It contains a dual sided sponge applicator that seems pretty cheap and useless. There is unfortunately no integrated mirror in the packaging and I do need to carry my own compact mirror with me while traveling.

The texture of the eye shadow is very soft, smooth and incredibly silky. Although the eye shadow is in powder form, it feels creamy whilst application. Application of the eye shadow is super easy. I love how it spreads easily all over my lids with absolutely no fall out. I simply sweep my eye shadow brush over the desired color and apply it over my eye lids. The eye shadow does not tend to fall over my cheeks unlike few other powdery eye shadows. It provides an even coverage without giving patchy look. The pigmentation is medium to build-able. With the darkest shade, I get the actual color with just one application but with the lighter shades I do need several applications to build up the color. With the primer underneath, I get true and vibrant shades with just few applications. Girls, do invest in a good primer. It really does make a difference in both pigmentation and longevity.

The staying power is pretty amazing when used with a primer. I did an eye look (check out here) with this quad in my cousin’s marriage. The eye shadow stayed on my slightly oily lids for around 10 hours without fading or creasing. It is easy to remove with olive oil or a good makeup remover.

Copper Brown consists of four shades. The lightest shade is perfect for highlighter or as a base for soft brown smokey look. The second shade is a light bronze shade with hint gold in it. The third shade is a mix of copper and bronze that looks pretty when used on its own. The last shade is a dark brown shade with fine gold shimmers. This is my favorite shade as it compliments my brown eyes and I love using it on its own. It instantly brightens up my eye area. All the shades have metallic finish to them and looks lovely with both day and night looks. Copper brown is suitable for all skin tones.
