Hello! As you can tell from the title I am dedicating this blog post to an eye quad I bought a while back. I never used it until now. I know it’s really sad…I have so much makeup that some of them I don’t have time to try them on until later. Plus compared to the Coral Oasis quad I felt these shades were not particularly unique so I kind of forgot about them.
When I swatched them they ended up being quite pretty. Description from L to R: glittery frosty “shocking” white, pink metallic, metallic glittery warm brown, metallic glittery chocolate brown.
I was quite surprised by how my eyes turned out. The colors were coordinated in such a fashion that putting together a look was a no brainer. I used the pink as an all over lid color, the warm brown as my outer third, and the dark brown to darken my outer crease by making a V. I put the white as an inner corner highlight and I put a little bit of the color on the browbone. The white was quite frosty and glittery when worn (which I didn’t mind on my inner corners). There’s a slight sparkle from the other colors when applied to the lids…but the colors weren’t as metallic and glittery as some Urban Decay eyeshadows can be. They were metallic and sparkly but not so distractedly.
I also tried on for the first time the Corallina blush from Milani. I think the color leans slightly reddish coral (which I don’t prefer) but I still loved it on my cheeks. Light hand is recommended for this blush since it’s highly pigmented. On my lips I’m wearing Neutrogena moisture smooth color stick in Juicy Peach and on top I wore Revlon lip butter’s Peach Parfait. I absolutely love the Peach Parfait color, and to avoid my lips from peeling I layer the Juicy Peach underneath. This is my current favorite lip combo.
Overall I love both the eyestudio quad and the blush, and I can’t wait to use these products more often.
