You may remember that I swatched & reviewed all my Maybelline quads a while back. I'd been keeping an eye on the Maybelline eyeshadow display, and I noticed a quad I didn't have called Plum Smokes. I don't really know if this is new, or maybe just new to me. I've been a little ticked at Maybelline for futzing with their pan size in their duos, trios & quads. (You'll see what I mean in a second.) They decided, instead of making all the pans be the same size, they needed to predict what shade we'd use more of, and make that pan bigger, while making others smaller. Which seriously drives me batty. Poorly played, Maybelline. You revamped your shadows so that they were so much better, and then you had to go and 'fix' what wasn't even broken? Argh.
So anyway, I'd been curious about that, and wondered if their new shadows in the new pan sizes were as good as the old equal size quads. So I picked up Plum Smokes in the interest of finding out.
I did a look using all the colors. Check it out.
I really do like it, the colors go together fabulously. I wasn't getting the blend I wanted with the pink 'base' shade, so I ended up using some Too Faced In The Buff (a matte ivory) to blend out on the browbone.
What do you think? Do you like your palette pans to be the same size or do you not particularly care?
