Review: Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion Amethyst Ablaze

Sep 29, 2011 7 comments
Hey guys! I got another Maybelline Eye Studio Review for you! This is the purple on called Amethyst Ablaze. I don't know if I mentioned this in the last review(Forest Fury) but I started buying these palettes because of A Brilliant Brunette's review on them, this particular palette was the reason I started buying them. I was REALLY looking forward to using these because the swatches on her blog are to die for!

Product Description: Sophisticated color, ignited by an exclusive Luminizer, reveals amazing color highlights. Explosive pigments sweep on for the truest color payoff. Exclusive Luminizer unleashes a surge of color.

Okay, so I was a little disappointed with this palette. I don't know why but the shadows don't actually look like A Brilliant Brunettes swatches. They aren't nearly as pigmented as they looked on her blog. But they are still gorgeous and I LOVE the glitter topcoat! Just as with the green palette, this is really good for a girl starting out with color. They are bright but not blinding or hard to work with. Still WAY overpriced for drugstore shadows. Much of my opinions on this palette are the same for the green palette. I will have one more review on these, this time for the blue palette so keep an eye out for that.

    well, I think you did get a full pigmentation anyway, and you definitely got the sparkles. But i've seen them in drugstores also, and haven't got the urge for them somehow.
    you shouldn't be too disappointed since you managed to create this wonderful look.
    But good luck with the blue one!
