I love a good bargain. I'm forever searching through websites to get the best deal for something whether it be a holiday or make up. While browsing Fragrance Direct a few months ago, i might have made a cheeky little order. One of the products i ended up adding to my online basket was the Maybelline Eye Studio quad in 'Vivid Plums'.
While these quads would normally go for around £6.99, you can get them for only £2.49 at Fragrance Direct which is a brilliant saving. At the time, i was trying to experiment with new colours and to try to steer myself away from the same neutral eye i was doing every day. I think this is a gorgeous little quad, especially with Autumn coming up.
The 4 shades are all really pretty colours. 1 is a really shimmery champagne colour, 2 a dark plum, 3 a light pinky nude and 4 a gorgeous plummy taupe. I think it's really easy to create a pretty eye look using just these shadows, whether it be a subtle daytime look or a more dramatic night time look. The shadows feel very soft and blend well, also i haven't noticed any fall out yet! The pigmentation is pretty good on the whole, 1 can take a few swipes to show up to full opacity. All colours have varying degree's of shimmer, which i personally love but i know will put some people off.
|L to R: 1, 2, 3 and 4.|
I think this would be a great quad for beginners as it comes with a handy diagram on the back showing you how to create an eye look with it, which is pretty lovely. All in all, I'm pretty impressed and will be picking up some Maybelline eyeshadows now!
