[REVIEW] Maybelline Marbleized Eye Shadow

Walking through Target during my internship in the USA I saw a little box, its inside shining bright making it look like a carefully packed little gemstone. But it fact it wasn’t a gem it was the Teal Takeover Marbleized Eye Shadow by Maybeline, which – thanks to it’s amazing texture – l think looks exactly like a gemstone! Now let’s see if this is also the case when applied to your eyelids.



The Maybelline Marbleized Eye Shadows are baked shadows. This gives you a lot product and causes the eye shadow to last for a very long time. The teal eyeshadow has a very velvety finish, even though it’s a sparkly shadow. The brown one however, is a little drier and harder to apply. The sparkles get everywhere, so applying this shadow before any of your other makeup – and using a good eyeshadow primer – is recommend.




As you can see the teal eye shadow is a lot more vibrant in the sun, while the color of the brown, more sparkly, shadow turns into more of a gold shimmer. This is especially visible when applied on the eyelids.

The Mabelline Marbleized Eye Shadow’s are very pigmented. These swatches were made with only one swipe!

The shadows are very easy to blend and have great pigmentation. I love the color combination of the teal and the brown/gold. It really looks like my eyelids transformed into two gemstones, don’t you think?


Packaging – gorgeous! I love it when you can clearly see the product.
Amount of product – good.
Texture – the teal color is very velvety, but the more glittery brown color gives quite a bit of fall out.
Application – the teal shadow is easy, the brown requires a eyeshadow primer.
Lasts – all day with a good primer.
Other colors available? – yes, there are nine other shade combinations on the official website. I don’t think this shadow retails in Europe, but you can find 14 (!) colors on Amazon HERE, .
Price vs Product – I bought mine in the USA with 50% off. Usually retails for about €5,00/ $6,99. I think the price you pay for these Maybelline eye shadow color is quite decent.

With Love,
