My Experience with Physicians Formula Matte Collection Quad Eyeshadow – Canyon Classique:
The Physicians Formula Eyeshadow Quad in Canyon Classics is a matte, neutral eye shadow quad. It is perfect for work or for any day when you want to sport a n*de eye look. You can also easily take your look from a neutral, work appropriate day look to a smoky night look!
The eyeshadow quad comes in a small grey four pan palette with a transparent lid which closes securely. It is travel friendly and the transparent lid makes it easier to see the colors in the palette without having to look at the name or open the lid. It is small enough to carry in your handbag. There is a small section of the lid which is opaque and this contains a small mirror on the inner side of the lid. The mirror is pretty small, but it is something good to have for touch-ups on the go. The palette comes with a decent sponge tip applicator which has a pointed tip on one side and a flat tip on the other.
The four colors in this palette are:
Shade 1 – Light Brown – Can be used all over the lid and even as a transition color.
Shade 2 – Off-white – Can be used as a highlight or even all over the lid, for a bright eyed look.
Shade 3 – Grey – Can be used in the outer corner to darken up the look and make it more smoky
Shade 4 – Medium Brown – Can be used in the crease.
For a day look, since using the grey by itself in the outer corner may seem too dark, you can combine the grey and the medium brown for the outer corner to get a more muted look.
Finish and Texture:
All the shadows in this quad are totally matte shades, which is great for office. The texture of these shadows is really soft and buttery and is quite easy to blend. They feel like the texture of theBalm’s matte eye shadows! If blended properly, you can get an air-brushed look.
All the four shades in this palette have excellent pigmentation. I do not find much difference in the pigmentation with or without a primer. Unless you have very oily lids, you can wear them without a primer too.
These shadows are quite long lasting. I have really oily lids. Without a primer, I find they last for over 6 hours before starting to fade slightly. But with a primer, they last through the day.
Pros of Physicians Formula Matte Collection Quad Eyeshadow – Canyon Classique:
- High-quality matte eye shadows.
- Shades perfect for a neutral, every day work look, which can be converted easily to a smoky night look.
- Soft and buttery texture.
- Superb pigmentation.
- Easy to blend.
- Long-lasting power.
- Slim, travel-friendly packaging.
- Fragrance free.
Cons of Physicians Formula Matte Collection Quad Eyeshadow – Canyon Classique:
- Non-availability in India.
Would I Recommend Physicians Formula Matte Collection Quad Eyeshadow – Canyon Classique?
I love the creamy texture of these eyeshadows! They apply so smoothly and last all day and being all neutral shades, you really cannot mess up your look too much, even if you are a beginner! Do try it if you get a chance.
