05.14.14 - Maybelline Eyestudio Quad: Bare it Buff
>_>;; Late posting this. Whoops. Not gonna lie, I've been really busy.
Continuation from this post on the limited edition Maybelline Eyestudio Quads for the Dare to go Nude Spring 2014 Collection.
This quad was my least favorite out of the 3 other quads...
Everything is swatched over Milani's Eyeshadow Primer and under an LED light
The colors that were included in the quad. Very light shades.
It looks like an off-white in the pan but it's actually got a golden sheen.
It's got a few chunks of glitter in it too
Doesn't this look exactly the same as the first one? Well, no. While the first color was a gold, this is a copper sheen. You can kind of make out the reddish tones in this one compared to the 1st shade.
Here you can make out the reddish sheen
Another very pale color. This is an extremely pale pink with a flash of a red duochrome
Here you can see the 2nd shade (on the left) compared to the 3rd shade
4th (and last) Shade
This is a golden mid-tone brown and it has a strong gold duochrome
You can see the gold more in this photo
As I've said this is my least favorite quad. I think if you wanted to use these colors (not the last one) only for highlights or layering on top of darker colors, then it'll be fine. While there is strong pigmentation, everything in this quad seems as if it were made to "illuminate" instead. At least, that's what I think.
