Deborah Milano Eye Design Quad So Brown Review

Deborah Milano Eye Design Quad – So Brown

Hi Ladies,

Today, I will be reviewing my second eyeshadow quad that I bought after being inspired by reviews and eye makeup tutorials on IMBB.  The first one being Maybelline Diamond Glow By Eye Studio – Copper Brown 01 reviewed here.

Deborah Milano Eye Design Quad So Brown


Rs. 595, got it for discount at Rs. 505



Product Description:

Glides on effortlessly and each hue can be worn separately or blended to achieve custom colours and coverage. Each palette encloses 4 coordinating shades. Available in 6 colour harmonies.

My Take on Deborah Milano Eye Design Quad – So Brown:

The eyeshadow comes in a beautiful package which is slanting oval kind.  The top transparent cover is quite thick and thus is less prone to damaging the quad.  The foam-tip is a little slanting one too.  Though, I tried to apply the eyeshadows with it, I didn’t find the same comfortable at all.  I am using the eyeshadow brushes from The Body Shop for the same.

A clear description of how the colours should be applied is given behind the quad, serves useful for the beginners. I was actually searching for Maybelline Chai Latte Quad for many days on an online site. Since it was not available, I finally picked up this.

There is very little fallout. The colours crease easily when used without a primer and lasts for very less time, 2-3 hours maximum, but with the primer, they last for a long time, 4-5 hours after which they begin to fade.  Mostly, by the time I get back home, there is hardly any colour on my lids.

The colours have sheer shimmer particles which are not over the top and all the colours are quite nice and wearable to work everyday.  I love the darkest brown in the quad and use it to fill my eyebrows and use the 2 and 3 colours for the eye makeup and the first one for the brow line.

Pros of Deborah Milano Eye Design Quad – So Brown:

  • Colours are beautiful, love the dark brown in the quad.
  • Very very fine shimmer, can be worn at daytime without any issues.
  • Pigmented colours with less fallout.
  • Stays for 2-3 hours when worn with a base.
  • Packaging is quite different, neither oval nor round.

Cons of Deborah Milano Eye Design Quad – So Brown:

  • Applicator is of no use and can be directly thrown away.
  • Colours fade away quite quickly when applied without base.
  • Availability could be an issue, haven’t seen in stores, but only at e-commerce sites (correct me if I am wrong).
  • Little pricey, similar shades available in Maybelline at  lesser rice (Maybelline Chai Latte quad).
  • Contains parabens.

  1. browns usually suit for office wear and for office ‘long lasting’ is mandatory for me :haanji:
    I have my eyes on Chai Latte Quad too :jiggy1:

    1. Chai Latte Quad is awesome Vibrant Hues..I use it almost daily for office wear…particularly the lid color and the deep brown crease color!!:D

      1. So True VibrantHues and Kimi. I was looking for chai latte quad on Urban touch for a long time. So had to pick this up since it was not available.. regret my decision :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: . will pick up the chai latte quad soon from Lifestyle near my place.

  2. I have been a huge fan of maybelline chai latte quad for avery long time. The colors aredefinitley my favourite from the quad . Good review. 🙂

  3. Thanks for the review! 🙂
    I think its time for me to get the chai latte quad. The last time I went to get it, it was not available so I came home with the lilac mauve one. Though that is good, but chai latte would have been much better.

  4. Was just thinking it looks like chai latte! That one I love. Am wearing the bronze and the white from it today with a faces green!
