I got it in mauve taupe.
The eyeshadows are in a balck see through case with the faces logo in the front. Its an ok tyoe of packaging, nothing speacial or classy about it. an applicator is provided inside, which we all know is of little use. There is no mirror in the case.
About the colors:
It has 4 colors, one higlighter- shimmery creamish pink, 2 shades of purple- mauve with more pinkinsh tinge and other is smokey mauve, and a greyish taupe.
My take on this quad:
I expected this quad to be an avergage kind, considering the price, but I was wrong. All the shades have intense pigmentation. A single swipe and you get the exact color as seen in the pan.
Pigmentation can definitely be increased by using a primer underneath.
The texture is very smooth, in fact buttery smooth. There is just a slight fall out. Eyeshadows are not at all powdery or chalky. They glide easily on the lids and are very easy to blend.
( left- with flash; right- without flash)
All the colors give a pearly finish. Staying power is around 3-4 hours and there is slight creasing after 2-3 hours if used without a base.when it is used with a base underneath and it easily stays on my lids for 6 hours without any creasing.
- Colors are very pretty
- Pigmentation is intense
- Buttery smooth texture
- Blends easily
- Finish of all the eyeshadows is pearly, not shimmery
- Very slight fall out
- Texture isn’t chalky
- Staying power is fine considering the price and my oily lids.
- Good quantity
- Complete list of ingredients mentioned
- Applicator is of no use
- No dark color in the quad
- I think there’s an availability issue.
- Slight creasing after 2-3 hours without base
- Packaging could be improved
IMBB Rating: 4/5
Will I repurchase?
I wont be able to finish this, but I am looking for other colors. I don’t mind the staying power because it can be improved by using a good base. I love its pigmentation and texture and most of all, its color and price.
Do I recommend?
Yes. If you like the colors and are looking for an affordable quad, give this a try for sure.
Hope you like my review. 🙂
Have a great day ahead.
