Review, Swatches, and Demo: Maybelline Stylish Smokes Quad in Amethyst Smokes

Sunday, February 06, 2011

Hey everyone! I did a look with this and swatches so you could really see the quality. It is the Maybelline Stylish Smokes Quad in Amethyst Smokes (about $5 on Amazon if you click the link). I think I paid about $7 at the drugstore for it.

Since the Maybelline EyeStudio stuff is such great quality, I thought these would be the same. However, I was not as impressed. These shadows are not bad, but not the best. It comes with a lid color, crease, outer corner, and highlight. They are not the smoothest shadows. I felt like i really had to swipe my brush a lot to get the color up. Here are the swatches:

I was surprised how the lid color (the first one) showed up on my hand. It did not show up this pigmented on my eye. The crease color (the second one) was the other way around. It looked good on my eye but this swatch doesn't look the best. The white and the black showed up about right.

The lid color was very hard to apply and did not blend well. It was not pigmented and seemed to stick to my eye and not spread around. Here is a picture with just the lid color:
Not the best. I would not wear this color alone.

This is with the crease color added:
As you can see, it looks a lot better once the crease color is added.

Then the finished look:
Its not too bad, but not good enough for me to purchase another one. You can spend the same amount of money, and get one of the Maybelline EyeStudio Wet Eye Shadow Quads (Click here for a review on those) and get way better quality. 

I'd love to know if any of you have tried these!
