This is part of my Target purchasing spree, and I got it basically for the glitter. After reading Scrangie's reviews, I was kinda meh about the whole set, but then I kept looking at her posts and after she said it was worth it just for the glitter, I caved. I did hold back and just purchased the brown set, instead of all of them, so that was a personal triumph for me!
Behold the beauty of Maybelline EyeStudio Color Explosion in Caffeine Rush ...
Swatches on bare skin (top) and over UDPP (bottom), light to dark with glitter at end (obs hehe), no flash

Quick EOTD using palette - lightest color as inner highlight and on browbone, 2nd color on lid, medium brown in crease, darkest in outer V. glitter over inner third of eyelid, topped with mascara, all over UDPP.
The colors are neat, and they go together well (obviously with any palette). I was expecting more from the glitter, but it's a nice subtle glitter instead of in your face, so it makes it more work/school appropriate. I've worn it 2-3 times and I've enjoyed it each time, but the colors don't have as much color payoff as I'd like. I'm not sure if that's Maybelline in general or this palette, but I'm not that impressed. I'll have to try it over a different primer.
Anyone used these? Thoughts?
