Review: Maybelline EyeStudio Quads

Product: Maybelline EyeStudio Quads
Price: It runs for around $15 in Australian stores (You can find them at any store that stocks maybelline. E.g. Priceline, any chemist/pharmacy, Target, Kmart)

Shade: 05 Give Me Gold

This was the first quad I had bought from the series. The colours in this quad are really wearable, and are great for creating a more neutral look. (Sorry, the colours weren't showing up that great on camera)

Shade: 20 Sapphire Siren

I love all the colours in the quad, they make a really nice night look and all the shades are very vibrant and pigmented. A mix of frosty and shimmery finishes.

- Quite prigmented and shades show up pretty true to colour in the pan.
- Packaging is simple, sleek and lightweight.
- All shades in the quad go really well together, and it's easy to create a look just using the one palette.
- Great for travelling
- They come in a wide selection of colours. From my knowledge, they even have the occassional limited edition colours.
- Relateively inexpensive - making it really great for people just starting out with makeup.
- For once...I actually like the sponge tip applicator it comes with. I usually chuck away the applicators because they're hard to use, and are a complete hassle to carry around. However, the applicator that comes with these quads are longer than the normal applicators - making it easier to use, and they come with two ends - a normal end and a slimmer end, which helps to create the look you want without using different brushes.

- The eyeshadows tend to have a lot of fallout - probably because a lot of the colours in the quads are very shimmery.
- Some of the colours can be quite powdery. (Not all colours though.) 

Overall Opinion:
I do like these eyeshadow quads. Not only are they great for travelling, these palettes come with all the shades you need for creating a look. Also, for the price we pay for these eyeshadows, I can say they are really good quality. However, I believe that a primer/base is needed before application, to make sure colours show up better and stay longer.
