Swatched: Maybelline Diamond Glow Eyestudio in Bronze Drama

I was scouring the cosmetic aisles of Boots recently for a khaki green eyeshadow and spotted this quad from Maybelline's 'Eyestudio Diamond Glow' range.

Bronze Drama doesn't actually contain a bronze shadow but insteads consists of a khaki green shadow (obviously!) nestled alongside a creamy off-white, vibrant copper and light charcoal grey. As the 'diamond glow' part of this product's name suggests, each of the shadows have a fine glitter running through them.

The glitter hasn't shown up that well on the pics but I can assure you its there and gives just the right amount of twinkle to allow the colours work during the day or night. It doesn't make for a grainy texture at all either and all the shadows apply smoothly and blend well.

The quad retails at £7.19 in Boots. If you're tempted, you'll be happy to hear its currently available on their website with £2 off :)

Until next time,


  1. i bought this a while ago in a blog sale then it got places in my eyeshadow draw & never seen again ... but looking at your swatches has got me all excited again :)

  2. You should definitely give it a try, the more I use it the more I like it :)
