Covergirl & Maybelline Quad Reviews

Hey wonderful people!

How has your week been going? For me it has been non stop with work but thankfully I get to go home and visit my parents soon. I have been shopping lately (shocker) and wanted to give you some quick reviews on two eyeshadow quads.

I have the Maybelline Sandstone Shimmer quad. The colors are amazing for fall. Copper, chocolate brown, burgundy, and a white shimmer are what’s included in this palette. The colors are easy to blend plus the color payoff is amazing. Each shade is labeled how to wear it such as crease, lid, etc. but to keep life interesting I’m breaking those rules. Each shadow does have shimmer in it but nothing that’s too dramatic for a day time eye. There is some fall out but if you start with your eye makeup then apply foundation you should be fine.

A recent launch from Covergirl ended up with me buying a new eyeshadow quad. It’s full of different shades of grey and dark plum color. They are a satin finish but you need to apply more shadow then you regularly would. The color pay off isn’t that great it takes three layers for the pigment to show up. If you have extra time to keep applying shadow then the colors are very pretty. For a quick out the door eye I would skip on this quad. I picked up the shade Smokey Nudes. You can purchases these at your local drugstores for less then ten dollars. The grey shadows at the top of my arm in the picture below is from the Covergirl palette. What are favorite drugstore eyeshadows?

Love always,
