Recently, I tried one of their palette called Maybelline City Mini Palette in Rooftop Bronzes because its shades really attracted me and looked beautiful. But let’s see if this palette performed as beautifully or not!

Packaging & Appearance: The eyeshadow come in a black palette which has a transparent lid. I love the layout of the eyeshadows. They look really nice and aligned.

5. This shade of gold is slightly darker than the previous one
6. This is a bronze color eyeshadow

Staying Power: The staying power is quite good. It stays for about 5-6 hours. It does fade away a bit but doesn’t fully disappear.

Pigmentation: The pigmentation of the shadows is amazing. It doesn’t need much building up. I always get the required intensity in 2 swipes.

Finish: These eyeshadow have a shimmery finish and some of them also have a bit of satin finish as well.

Smell: It doesn’t have any smell.

My Experience: I have had a good experience with this palette. When I ordered it I didn’t expect it to be that good but it performed really well. I specifically ordered this shade in this palette because it had different tones of golden which is very needed in wedding season. The brush side of the applicator does a pretty good job as well.

The shadows are very smooth and buttery and they almost glisten like a highlighter. It gives a very nice shine when applied on the lids and looks very pretty. It stays for a good amount of time and then starts fading. Also I love the pigmentation and I don’t need to layer it much.

There many shades available in this palette which is amazing. Also, it does give a bit of fall out which I think is normal for shimmer eyeshadows. But the fall out is not very crazy and can be cleaned up as well. Other than that , I don’t find anything wrong with this palette.


1. Decent staying power
2. Smooth texture
3. Amazing pigmentation
4. Variety of shades
5. Affordable
6. Travel friendly
7. Beautiful finish
8. Comes with an applicator


1. Bit of a fall out

Jhalli Diva Verdict: 4.5/5

Will I Repurchase?

Yes, absolutely! I love this palette and it’s the best drugstore palette I’ve found till now and it is amazing in all aspects as well. Although, this might take forever to get over but I’ll definitely purchase this in some other shade.

Do I Recommend?

Yes! I do recommend this palette. It is an outstanding palette and if you’re looking for some good eyeshadow palettes you can always grab this one and specially if there’s any wedding around the corner it will definitely come very handy.

Overall Summary: I really love using Maybelline City Mini Eyeshadow palette. It’s pigmented , smooth and not gritty at all. It just goes on smoothly and looks amazing on the lids. I love that it is affordable and you can always grab discounts on it. It is a very compact palette and you can carry it in your purse as well as it’s not heavy. So do grab this palette if you think it’s the one for you!
