If you've been a follower of my blog for a while now you'll know that I've been running a bit of a series reviewing these quads from ELF for you all. This is actually the last one that I have, but I'll be ordering a few more next time I order as I'm enjoying using these as they're so easy to pick up and use as you have everything you need for an eye look in one mini palette. And at £1.50, you can't go far wrong - available here.
As always I've included a summary at the end :)
These bargain quads have 4 eyeshadows in, each with a highlight, lid, crease and deeper defining shade. It does have a smaller than average 2.5g of product, that's combined, not per shade. It comes in a pretty cheap looking clear lidded container, but the clear lid makes it really practical if you have a lot of the quads. In total there are 19 colour choices - lots to choose from!
I know I always say it with these quads, but at £1.50 for 4 eyeshadows you can't really expect perfection! They are a little powdery and could be better pressed. But they don't apply half bad and can look nicely blended with just a little bit more effort. Somewhere this is rather impressive though is that after a 9 hour day at work I only had very minimal and not noticeable creasing. There was some fading though.
1 - This is a ivory colour which is almost matte, but has a very slight shimmer to it, so a great finish for a highlight. It's actually surprisingly pigmented - impressed!
2 - This one is on the sheerer side, but you can still see that it has a dusky bubblegum colour, with coral tones to it. Not bright at all so great for a wash of spring colour.
3 - Again this has an almost matte finish to it, with an alright pigmentation to it. The colour is a medium pinky mauve with slight brown undertones. It works well as the crease shade of the set for me.
4 - Another pink! This one is paler and less intensely coloured, with a cooler tone to it. It has the same almost matte finish again. As for pigmentation - it could be better!
The Good - cheap, a look in one, practical packaging, great spring colours, only a teeny bit of creasing by the end of the day.
The Not so Good - bit powdery, fades during the day, pigmentation could be better in the pinks, 2.5g product combined.
Would I repurchase? I have loads of these quads and will continue to get them, but this colour selection isn't entirely my thing!
Who might like it? Those that want a cheap and simple quad to use for spring.
The Bottom Line - Not to everyones standard, but fine for me for everyday wear. Great Spring colours too!
That was the last of the quads I have from ELF to review :( I'm really considering getting some more a. because I like them and b. because judging by the views I get on them I'm guessing you like to read the reviews. But feel free to tell me if you like this series and feel free to tell me any particular ones you'd like to see! But thanks for stopping by, H :)
