Maybelline Big Eyes - Luminous Browns - review & two makeup looks

Over the past few weeks, I've found myself using this palette, Luminous Browns, from Maybelline's Big Eyes collection.  There are five palettes on offer and this is the one I would have picked myself because we all know I love me some neutrals and a pop of colour too.

For €10.49, we get 4 soft eyeshadows that blend well together while making my green eyes even greener.  It has light catching technology and while I don't think it brings any more light to my actual eyeballs, the soft shimmer each shade gives off does give a lovely soft focus effect to the eyes.

There's a little diagram on the back of the palette showing you one way of using it and all it takes is two minutes for this neutral eye with a hit of orange on the upper eyelid.  I love this look and you can take it up a notch with a bit of liner too if you're so inclined, but for me, this is a delightful summery neutral eye!

Of course, you can't put an orange shade in a palette and not expect me to cover myself with it now can you?  We all know I'm very into orange everything right now and if you've blue or green eyes and want to make them pop, not out of your face or anything,  then lash on some orange and you're good to go.  Make sure to take a darker brown softly into the crease and outer corner and poof, you have a colourful summery eye.

Pigmentation is decent with this guy and as usual like with all eyeshadows, I have to use a primer or it's crease city.  Yes, the packaging isn't very special at all, but it's lightweight and perfect for popping in your makeup bag.

Colour me impressed with the Luminous Browns palette!  It's on Maybelline counters now so go forth and investigate!
