I hope you all are having a wonderful day wherever you are! Today, I am excited to be talking about the Maybelline New York Lemonade Craze eyeshadow palette! I was so excited to get this palette because I have been so obsessed with yellows and warm peach colors and you all know how much I loved the Dominique Cosmetics Lemonade palette!
To be honest, I rarely try new eyeshadow palettes from the drugstore. I am usually just more drawn to high end eyeshadow palettes but this one looked really beautiful and I couldn’t pass it up! Lemonade Craze does retail for $10.99 and comes with 12 shades which are a mix of matte and shimmer. Let’s jump into the shade selection!
In the first row, you have:
Sherbet – This is a light cream matte shade. It is basically the same color as my eyelid so I use it to set my eyelid primer. It’s a pretty normal shade but super easy to use and blend!
Berry Ice – This is a light tan, peach shade. I was so shocked by how soft this shade was to swatch. It is a really nice soft transition shade.
Strawberry Lemonade – This is a beautiful bright light pink shimmer shade. It blends like a dream and is so bright and reflective. One of the most beautiful shades in palette.
Sunnies – This is a really soft yellow cream shade. It is the lightest shade in the palette so you can use it to set your eye shadow primer too.
Lemonade Craze – Of course, Lemonade Craze is the name sake of the palette. The bright yellow matte shade of the palette. It is absolutely beautiful.
Main Squeeze – This is a yellow shimmer shade. This one has more glitter than the other shades in the palette. I usually use it to blend over another shade just to add some glimmer!
In the second row, you have:
Citrus – This is a peach shimmery shade. It has a similar shade to Strawberry Lemonade but it is more peachy. It also has a lot of glitter but isn’t as sheer as Main Squeeze.
Ice Pop – This is a bright pink / red matte shade. It seems really pigmented in the pan and even when you swatch it out but it isn’t as bold on the eye. It comes across as a soft pink color but still really pretty.
Old Fashioned – This is a dark chocolate matte brown. It is the darkest shade in the palette and nice to deepen up the crease.
Coral Punch – This is a BEAUTIFUL coral matte shade. This shade is really light on the eyes but its really pretty. I love it for summer or spring.
Sugar Coated – This is a metallic bronze shade. I feel like this is the shade of the year, so many palettes have a similar color. This one is really pretty!
Sweet Tea – This is a milk chocolate brown matte shade. This is my go to transition shade. Its blends beautifully.
Overall I really like this Maybelline palette! It’s a really quality palette and a great price. I don’t think it’s a holy grail palette, it doesn’t have everything I need in one palette but I can’t complain about much else. It’s a beautiful color scheme for the summer and spring. I highly recommend this palette!
