We have all seen these Essence cosmetics quads around. This brand reminds me of our very own Elle 18 brand -affordable and worth the price. There is a lovely display of this brand at Wilko, UK where you would also get many new launches like their gel nail polishes. This taupe shadow was of course bought in India, online. It has all wearable and usable shades for every day in this quad, and that’s why I thought it deserved to be picked up.

Quattro eyeshadow – Quattro styles. Different textures ranging from silky shimmering to intensive shine ensure unlimited creativity with your eye makeup. Perfectly aligned shades, excellent color-dispersion and long-lasting results make the Quattro eyeshadow an absolute favorite.
My Experience with Essence Quattro Over The Taupe Eyeshadow:
This quad can be perfect for office or day wear where you just want to wear a soft smokey brown eye makeup. The white in it is a great color to clean up the dark edges of the shadow. It feels very soft and could be used on the brow bone too but has no highlight to it. The browns in it are super nice. The darker brownish black is perfect for your crease or outer V or you could use the brown for crease and the darkest shade for outer V. It has to be built up but the pigmentation is above average, not thoroughly bad. You will need a primer for it to be darker, of course like all other drugstore quads.

The taupe grey kind of shade has some satin sheen to it which looks very pretty. It has no obvious shimmer but that pearly/satin feel to this quad is there. This quad is suitable for fair skin tones who can carry brown on their eyes well, but if you have darker skin around the eyes, then this kind of shade combination will enhance your dark circles and make you look dark and dull.

With this quad, I have to be careful to use an eye brightening concealer or else such brown shades would not show up much.

The pigmentation is not that bad, shades are very smooth and buttery and have very mild fall out. It will work well with a primer and a brown smudged eyeliner. It will last just two hours on my oily eyelids in case I do not use a primer. Overall, good brown taupe quad for lighter to medium skin for office or day wear.
