Maybelline Expert Wear Eye shadow- 8 pan palette in Pacific Treasures

Here's another product from my BuymeBeauty.com haul (Haul Post Here)
Maybelline Eexpert Wear Eye shadow palette in Pacific Treasures.






Maybelline says:
An eight-shade eyeshadow wardrobe that delivers all-day crease-resistant wear

Glides on effortlessly with superior smoothness
Velvet-tip applicator blends without tugging or pulling
Ophthalmologist-tested.  Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

I say:
To start with, I am not a daily-eyeshadow person but I almost drooled at the mere site of this palette as it seemed really practical to me with the nice, sleek packaging and daily wear colors. It comes with 2 sponge applicators, which I used for swatching, the applicators are just O.K!
Coming to the performance, I would rate it as one of those 50/50 products. The darker shades are more pigmented and creamier than the lighter shades (that's the case with most of the drug store eye-shadows though.) I wasn't happy with the staying power, they hardly stay for more 3 hours and if you have oily eye lids like me, you definitely need a primer before you wear these eye shadows. The shades fall out, as you can see even in the swatches  However, the good thing is that they don't crease or melt away. Pretty blendable, non patchy and easy to apply!!

Here are the swatches with 2 swipes each without a primer.
