Maybelline Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds

Maybelline has just launched a new line of Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds palettes in Watsons. These were released in Japan earlier in June.

Retailing at $19.90 each, the palette design and shade combinations are very reminiscent of Kate.

In the pic below (from top row to bottom): GY-1, BR-1, WN-1 and GN-1.

The Hyper Diamond palettes feature shades with varying textures. Some are more smooth with a intense metallic shine while some are more glittery sparkle and felt slightly dry and gritty. The GY-1 and BR-1 palettes swatched more intensely than the WN-1 and GN-1 palettes. These swatches were done without any primer, with some shades needing two to three swipes to show up.

Like the L'Oreal Open Eyes Chrome Intensity palettes, these are manufactured in China. In terms of color payoff, the L'Oreal Chrome Intensity palettes are more pigmented and felt silkier.

I simply love this range! I got the GY-1 and BR-1. I wore the grey to my staff annual dinner and the shadow stayed all night, no creasing and definitely sparkled all night! really great for smokey eyes look lovers.
