(review) Maybelline "Concrete Runway" palette

I bought this eyeshadow palette at my grocery store for half-off. The colors look beautiful in the pan but they are not very pigmented even over an eyeshadow base. Lame, right?
I applied the black and blue with a wet brush over my regular eyeliner. I used a dry brush to put purple in my crease, metallic gold on my lid, and white on my brow bone. This was an ok, relatively natural look and I was happy... Until...

The second pic is 6hours later- NO color left! LoL ridiculous! You can almost tell I had the purple in my crease, but even the blue on my eyeliner disappeared WTF?!

LMAO it ran away, that's for sure!!

Let's compare quality to an old Maybelline "Crown Jewels" eyeshadow trio I own:
The color pigment is crappy. I took this photo after applying multiple layers- even the darkest color in my crease is barely visible WTF! The only reason it looks somewhat nice in the pic is because I'm wearing NYX's "pearl" eyeshadow base--

Try #2 below I did not use eyeshadow base just to show you honest  pigmentation quality. It was so terrible I then tried to pack on extra color with a damp brush ☹️ omg still too "natural" for my liking:
This took me like 20min and it's barely visible!
Maybelline is a terrible brand.
