Maybelline The City Mini Palette eyeshadows; launching in Canada in July 2017

Lookee what I spotted backstage at Toronto Women's Fashion Week a couple of days back! Yep, I got a sneak peek at some of the new launches coming from Maybelline this summer.

These are new Maybelline The City Mini Palettes of eyeshadow, and they look like an instant hit. I rarely wear eyeshadow, but I've got #grabbyhands for these too – like the name says, they're mini, a little larger than the size of a business card.

Looks like Maybelline's The City Mini Palette will come in six 6-colour combinations. I'd give you their names, but only one of these had info on the back. The second palette on the left side is called Chill Brunch Neutrals.

Aren't they pretty? If you already like Maybelline powder shadows, you should like these travel-friendly compacts. Note: like the larger Maybelline palettes, the lids aren't mirrored, so you'll need one if you're prone to on-the-go applications.

Here's one of those on-the-spot videos I can't seem to stop shooting when the opportunity arises; I'm geeking out with fabulous Maybelline New York Canada Lead Artist Grace Lee backstage at Toronto Women's Fashion Week:

Are you a Maybelline powder-eyeshadow fan? What do you think of these? Are you likely to try one or two?
