Mariposa Metallic Chic Eyeshadow Palette – Review

mariposa metallic eyeshadow

Hey Beauties! It’s weekend and let’s talk about eyeshadow. Honestly, I was not sure what to expect considering this was my first Mariposa Eyeshadow Palette¬†purchase. Interested to read past post for full review of Dollar Store Haul, click the link here. I’ve tried their blushes and falsies and like them alot so I’m curious to put¬†my fingers¬†for a¬†color swatch.


I’m an eyeshadow junkie and have probably bought more than 25 palettes this year alone. Having said that, I have a good base for comparison.¬†I’m impressed¬†with the pigmentation or color payoff. A little goes a long way.


This palette is very pretty¬†by Mariposa!! The colors are very vibrant well pigmented. Very soft pigments! Smooth application. I love that they threw in a few nudes, warm tones, purples, blues and highlighters. It’s a good¬†palette and easily one of the most affordable for those who are new to makeup or those who likes to play with shadows¬†for¬†the holiday seasons.


The quality of this palette is on point with full size shadows for the price at least.¬†You get a lot of product for the money with this palette.¬†The packaging is sturdy cardboard with two sponge tip applicators¬†but there is no¬†mirror on the lid. It comes in a clear plastic lid and I like this packaging design since you can see the eyeshadows right away. That’s brilliant!


Here’s a closer look of the palette.

Mariposa’s powder eyeshadows are really good,¬†particularly the satin¬†ones, and they seem to last longer on me without creasing. You get 12¬†of them in the giant palette which is a real steal. On hindsight, it looks quite close¬†to the packaging of¬†L’Oreal La Palette Nude Eyeshadow.


Brighter shadows – just as glammy!


Warmer shadows Рlook how pretty these shadows are!


Shadows picked up directly from the pan. Really like the pigmentations. I dare say that the eyeshadows are true to color.


You get the burgundy that is so very on-trend right now. And a glittery steel grey, another one of my favourite shades to wear. The taupe, gold and pale pink are very versatile, and would work for day or night.

Color swatches under natural lighting

They swatches beautifully and the shades are amazing. I¬†was¬†very impressed with the pigmentation given it’s only $3.00. I love that there are a few¬†nudes/neutrals for daytime, in various textures and tons of shimmery shadows that aren’t black. The bright maroon¬†and bright gold are the two unusual colour pops.¬†The¬†color selections¬†are¬†amazing¬†and the¬†textures soft and smooth. I really really like this palette.


Here are the color swatches¬†on bare arm without primer or eye makeup base on closed up picture. What you see is what you get. Impressive, don’t you think?

I have so much fun playing with all the shades in this palette that I want to share some of the eye makeup look with all of you. Tell me what you think in the comment section. I’d love to know what you think.

I was excited to share a few of the eye makeup look with only using this Metallic Chic palette. So yay for that!

Overall, this is an¬†amazing¬†palette considering the low price. I’ll certainly repurchase¬†and planning to pick the other color palettes¬†the next time. This palette won’t cost an arm or leg, don’t wait till Christmas, this¬†great value and quality products goes out fast. You’d love this! Available at Dollar stores and on¬†ebay.

Hope you find this post helpful. Until next one, stay beautiful! ‚̧

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.
