Maven Beauty Cosmic Drip Eyeshadow Palette in Cosmos is a stunning eyeshadow quad featuring four gorgeous ultra-pigmented powder shadows. Each shade is creamy to the touch, deposits color evenly, glides across the skin effortlessly and offers luscious buildable coverage. I experienced no creasing, and the shadows stayed put most of the day. If you have oily eyelids you are likely accustomed to wearing a primer, and therefore you will definitely increase your wear-time. I don't use an eyeshadow primer except on the rarest of occasions, but I am impressed by the longevity of these shadows on my bare lids.

Shades (the shadows aren't individually named, and the color descriptions are my own): 

Top Left: A sparkling complex taupe
Top Right: A gorgeous sparkling eggplant
Bottom Left: A sublime sparkling antique gold
Bottom Right: A sparkling burnt copper

According to Maven,

Manifest an otherworldly drip worthy of a cosmic babe. These bite-size eyeshadow palettes are packed with high-intensity jewel tones and sparkling smoky metallics

Directions: Use alone or pair with your favorite Basic Beat Eyeshadow Palettes. Apply dry or wet to eyelids with a finger or brush.

  1. The stock photo and your own are so different. I like your photos much better. Those swatches look beautiful and so pigmented.

    1. Hi Marcia! Do you mean the stock photos on their website? All of these photos are mine, but the top picture of the palette was taken in doors and the other two were taken outside (held in front of my tree so that you could see the greenery through the clear palette). I am so happy that you liked my swatches, these shades are so gorgeously pigmented that they were really easy to photograph! These are all such wearable shades too!

  2. I adore these shades, they're perfect! Your swatches are divine. I never heard of Nova Beauty. I wish I could justify buying this palette because it's beautiful and well priced

    1. Me too, and of their three palettes from this collection this is by far my favorite! I totally know what you mean, it is very difficult for me to justify buying any palettes (makeup or skincare, for that matter) when I am swimming in so many products right now!

  3. These are gorgeous shades! I have the Basic Beat collection and have been wearing it all week! You can't beat the quality and price of Maven!

    1. I loved your swatches from the Basic Beat collection! They make such wonderful products, and I agree with you about these shades– they really are gorgeous!

  4. The quality is surprisingly good for a palette from a clothing brand that isn't exactly known for their makeup. Well done!
