Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / February 21 2018

There’s no denying that burgundy is the shade of the moment. For those looking to create the ultimate on-trend look, the Maybelline New York Burgundy Bar Eyeshadow Palette offers a collection of 12 rich, high-pigment shades to take your look from day to night.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this product to the test.

We also sent our reviewers the Maybelline New York Curvitude Liner and Brow Fibre to complete their statement eye look.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Maybelline New York Burgundy Bar Eyeshadow Palette to a panel of women aged between 18 and 39 who are looking to embrace the burgundy beauty trend and experiment with subtle to bold eye makeup looks.

The lowdown 

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

How rich and pigmented the colours are: A majority of the Review Crew® testers found the colours were intensely pigmented. They reported that the shades were highly blendable too, which allowed them to define and smoke out their eye makeup look. 

How long-wearing the formula is: Review Crew® members were happy to report that the eyeshadows were long-lasting and crease-resistant, with many finding they didn’t need to apply primer underneath.

How versatile the palette is: Most reviewers were thrilled with the selection of shades and were able to create a variety of different looks to take their makeup look from day to night. Reviewers also revealed that when teamed with the Maybelline New York Curvitude Liner, they were able to define their eyes further for a statement look.

Good to know: Some reviewers did mention that the majority of shades were too metallic for everyday wear and would have preferred to see a few more matte colours included in the palette.

The verdict

“Loved this palette. It’s such a good size to throw in your makeup bag for a weekend away over the holidays. Such beautiful colours that really made my blue eyes pop. The shadows were so pigmented you barely had to use any product. Very smooth and blendable - would highly recommend.”

“This is the perfect eyeshadow palette! The shade selection makes this palette extremely versatile with a couple of matte shades complemented by an assortment of warm shimmery shadows…The shadows are soft and creamy making them extremely blendable. I wore these shadows both to work and during evenings out; they are long-lasting with minimal fallout…can't fault it.”

“I’m not much of a makeup person, but being able to trial this was amazing. I love the neutral colours and all the glittery ones, as well as being able to create a smoky eye effect. It was easy to blend and it suited someone like me who is fair-skinned.”
