Packaging: 9/10

These shadows come in plastic jars with twist-off lids and sifters. Unlike most loose pigments that come in jars with sifters, I found it impossible to lift up and remove the plastic sifter.

Quality: 7.5/10

Forest Fatale is a soft, army green shade with micro-shimmer which create a subtle sparkle on the lid. When applied dry, this color isn’t bold or opaque, but does leave as smooth layer of color on the skin. When applied with a damp brush, though, the color almost disappears on the skin.

Ease of Use: 8.25/10

This shade packs easily onto the lid and blends out decently through the crease, though the color tends to look a little dull when blended out. Don’t bother trying to foil this pigment color.

Price: 8.5/10

For around $7.00, you get 0.05 ounces (1.5 grams) of shadow. There are almost no loose pigments offered at the drugstore level, so Maybelline is definitely offering something new to drugstore makeup customers.

MAC’s loose pigments cost $21.00 and contain 0.26 ounces (4.5 grams) of product while e.l.f.’s Studio pigments cost $3.00 and contain the same amount as Maybelline’s. Though Maybelline is supposed to be more affordable than MAC, you actually pay more per ounce of shadow: $140/ounce versus about $81/ounce. Granted, it will still take you a long time to get through a jar of Maybelline’s loose pigment and $7.00 isn’t a lot of money, but when you compare the pure price-to-amount numbers, you’re paying more with Maybelline.

  1. That’s SO interesting about paying more per ounce. Not many people would catch that because they just want something quick and cheap that’s accessible to them. This is the shade that I have from this collection as well and was pretty disappointed. I found that even with an eyelid primer AND setting spray, this color completely faded into my skin by the end of the day- so bizarre.
