Maybelline Eye Studio Quad Review


I'm back with a small review on this amazing eyeshadow from Maybelline! For a long time I've needed an eyeshadow "pallete" with severel brown nuances from light to dark. And this one is perfect! 
I'm a kind of person who is NOT into glitter everywhere, and I prefer matte, or not too glittery/sparkly eyeshadows. But that's just my opineon. There are severel duo and quad eyeshadows with brown nuaces that has lots or less glitter. But this is the perfect amount for me! 

It's called Eyes Studio Quad Eyeshadow and it's from Maybelline, cheap but great! The colours are very pigmented, but are yet to keep you at a naturel everyday-friendly look. I use these colours (sometimes only the 3 lightest of them, it depends whether I feel like having a heavier look) everyday, together with some down-winged eyeliner and some mascara. 

It comes with a great two-sided brush too. On the back of it, it tells you to use the "larger" side (more flat and round) for highlighter, and the "smaller" side (pointed, sharper) for liner. I do not follow that though, do as you want! There's also a mnay 4-step tutorial on the back you can follow for a brown sorta smokey-eye look! 

(Shown in window light- from left to right: light brown-yellowish colour, light caramel colour, bronze/kobber colour, and a dark chocolate colour)

I don't ever leave my house without my small makeup-bag, and I bring this one as well. It saves me  bringing an extra brush because it's already included, but it is quite big and does take a lot of place up in my makeup back. But the colours are awesome! I use the lightest (1) to highlight innercorner and browbone. I use the second (2) all over my lid, and lastly I either use (3) or (4) underneath my eye, as a guideline to my eyeliner. 

All in all, I'll give this 5 out of 5! It's really great! And not pricey at all, and you're able to do several looks with just 4 simple colours!

The lightening is quite poor since it's evening. Sorry!

The same, but with flash. Gorgeous colours, right?

This is all for this time. Enjoy!
