7 Worst Eyeshadows
From smoky hot messes to glittery disasters -- our readers recommend keeping your brushes far away from this eye makeup
No. 4: Maybelline New York Expert Wear Eye Shadow 8 Pan, $6.58TotalBeauty.com average reader rating: 5.1*
Why: One woman looking for quality on the cheap says, "I bought this product not too long ago looking to save some money on eye color. I can only say that I'm happy that the decision didn't take long because this 'Expert Wear' didn't take long at all before the colors, which don't really complement each other very well, started developing that sheen to the surface that is common with low-quality eyeshadows." Another reader complains the shadow "cakes too quickly [and the] colors don't complement each other." Another woman concurs, "I agree that the colors don't really go together and some get used way more than others. The big problem, however, is that it creases by noon. I want to do my makeup once, not three times to get through a day. Disappointed." One woman adds that "Maybelline makes lovely colors, but the quality isn't there. They crumble, aren't intense enough to last all day, and after a while, sort of compress and it's difficult to get any product on the applicator."
