The one palette your summer makeup kit deserves

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this versatile new eyeshadow palette

Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / February 11 2019

If you’re looking for the perfect summer makeup look, chances are you’re going to be reaching for bright, vibrant eyeshadows to make your peepers pop and complement your glowing skin.

Trouble is, finding that perfect go-to summer palette is a fickle thing as you often have to go with either a neutral palette that you can wear every day, or something that’s fun and bright that you can only really wear when you go out.

But Maybelline New York’s new Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette has managed to tick both boxes in one affordable palette – it offers an impressive selection of both neutral and bold hues that are super easy to wear. Whether you’re going for an office-approved daytime look or want to add a little bit of weekend drama to make your eyes really stand out, this palette offers endless possibilities. 

Our Review Crew® team put this product to the test.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Maybelline New York Lemonade Craze Eyeshadow Palette:

The bright hues: The review team loved the bold and vibrant selection of colours - which they described as fun, wearable and perfect for adding that pop of colour to their summer makeup look.

How easy the formula was to build and blend: Members were fans of the creamy, easy-to-apply formula. They also loved how they could layer and blend the pigments for different looks.

The versatility of the shades: Reviewers were impressed by the wide selection of matte and shimmer finishes – from wearable neutrals to bold splashes of colour. Many commented on the versatility of this palette, and how it offered endless looks in one. “This palette is exceptional for everyday natural looks and also to spice things up on the weekend!” wrote one reviewer.

The verdict

“Easy to blend, easy to work with, buildable and it lasts. Lovely combination of colours. Everyone can make a variety of fun summer looks with this palette. Lasted all day and night, and there was no fallout or fading.”
“I love the shades in this palette, I thought they blended nicely and easy to apply. I took it overseas with me, it was compact enough to travel with and the colours were perfect for a daytime beach look and great to wear on a night out as well.”
“I love the compact size as it’s not bulky and it is easily packed away for a weekend away – it fits in even the smallest handbag.”
