Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow Quads

You may remember me mentioning the Maybelline Expert Eye Shadow Quads earlier this week. You may also remember me mentioning our new puppy chewing up my USB cord. Well, I was able to replace it today and I am very excited to share my review with you.

I bought an eyeshadow quad just last week in the shade "Enchanted Forest". The "Enchanted Forest" is a very warm color palette with beige, gold, brown and olive green.

These eye shadow quads are great for beginners because each eyeshadow color has a description inset of where to apply, such as: lid, brow, crease, and corner. If you look on the back of the eyeshadow, you will also see a description as to the different ways you could wear the eyeshadow. These shadows have just enough shimmer to draw attention to your eyes without spreading glitter all over your face.

The best part about Maybelline's Expert Wear Eyeshadow Quads is that they stay on all day and all night. I have never used a primer when wearing these eyeshadows and my eyes look as good 24hours later as they did when I first applied it. I've used three different palettes and none of them crease.; they apply very easily.

I would like to tell you that I took these pictures at 2 am when I couldn't sleep. They do the eyeshadow's no justice. I will also tell you, I woke up in the morning and I looked like I had just applied the shadow. I liked "Enchanted Forest" so much, that I went and bought two more. The photo on the right is "Amethyst Smokes" .

The other shade I purchased is "Designer Chocolates". I think the colors on the palette are very pretty, but they did not show up well on my skin tone. The only colors you could see were the red for the crease and the brown for the corner. Overall, I have a new favorite eye shadow and cannot wait to go and pickup more of these. There are over 16 palletes, so there is a color for everyone and at around $5.00, you can't beat it!

Here is the "Designer Chocolate" palette:

  1. Wow! You did such a lovely job with the shadow. I'm 31, and I still fumble with the shading. :)
