Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion Eye Shadow 001

Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion Eye Shadow is testimony to the fact that you can find Japanese style eyeshadow at your drugstore. When Maybelline ventured into their Eye Studio Collection in late 2009 beginning of 2010 it was a step in a new direction for drugstore eyeshadows.

Let’s face it, can you name a ton of eyeshadows that you’d buy at the drugstore that are actually GOOD?

I can’t sadly. Most are chalky and sadly, lacking. However, drugstore makeup is slowly making small steps towards successfully creating wearable makeup but with those steps comes a huge jack up in price too but I don’t mind, I’ll pay more if I’m getting a quality product.

Eye Studio Plush Silk Eyeshadow Quads from Maybelline were a step in the right direction. Some folks hated these, I personally loved them….speaking as a fan of Japanese brands these are some of the closet style of shadow formula you’ll get in North America that mimic the formula and texture of an Asian eyeshadow purchased in an Asian Drugstore abroad…!

The new range of Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion Eye Shadow are pretty much spot on the same concept. These released earlier this year in the UK and they finally popped up on our shores a few short months ago.

Are they any good?

EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream 004

My best friend swears to the makeup Gods that conditioner is the way to the smoothest, softest shave evers.

I prefer a King of Shaves or EOS Shave Cream.

Both cheapie picks for the softest, smoothest shave ever!

Maybelline Color Sensational Pop Sticks 010

Maybelline recently released their new Color Sensational Pop Sticks to a great big hooray from me. I was so excited when I found a display of these at my local drugstore and to add to the boon of that discovery they were also marked at $4.79 each! Yay budget find!

Visions of a better budget versions of DuWop Iced Teas danced through my head.

Were they any good?
