Dreamy eyeshadow quads for summer nights ~ Maybelline

Hey beautiful ladies, are you ready for summer? I know I am!
I'm sat at my vanity writing this post, looking out the window at a beautiful, fresh, clear blue sky and it's 7.15pm... It's true, the sun makes everything better.

So when the sun started making an appearance I may have got a little carried away thinking about long, hot days and warm summer nights, which led to the purchase of these two beautiful quads.
I'd never tried Maybelline's eyeshadows before as I'm normally a bit hesitant to use anything other than high end for shadows but I saw these, strategically placed, catching the sun, twinkling away and couldn't leave without them. 
Both are very similar, I realise I probably only needed one or the other, but in a bid to justify both I can pick out minor differences... The pictures don't do them justice but the diamond glow palette works to a more burgundy shade and has gem-like sparkles. The big eyes palette has more of a shimmery finish, not so much 'sparkle' and works to a chocolate brown shade. Both are absolutely perfect for creating a sort of 'sunset' effect on the eyes. They are so pigmented, the picture above is a single swipe of each colour. They are buildable so can be used for subtle to dramatic looks... They are basically the perfect 'do it all' palettes.
5 stars!
See them in action in my favourites video here.
Hope you are all well and looking forward to the summer as much as I am!
