My experience with Essence Quattro Eye Shadow Over the Taupe
Essence Quattro Eye Shadow Over the Taupe is a combo pack of four shades of eye shadow packed in one. It comes packed in a lightweight and convenient to handle round plastic flat box. Unfortunately there is no mirror or eye shadow brush provided along with this kit. The box does not break nail which is the main concern of ladies with long nails. There is a medicinal smell to the colors which is not bothersome at all. The price for four shades is reasonable but the availability is an issue at times.
The texture of Essence Quattro Eye shadow Over the Taupe is not powdery to the extent that it would fall out excessively while applying. It is somewhere in between. Any good eye shadow brush can easily pick up the shades uniformly. Among the four shades the first one is the darkest of all, shade of black but not the blackest of black. This will give Gothic or smoky eye makeup look with ease. The second one is a highlighter shade. It is great to be used on the brow bones, inner corner of the eyes and on cheekbones. The third one is a matte gray shade to be used in many ways from being a base to mono shadow. The last one but not the least is a metallic silver shade which is good for both shiny party eye shadow or as an illuminator. One can apply it on the middle of the eyelid on of of all shades to add that 3D effect.
The finish of Essence Quattro Eye shadow Over the Taupe is perfect matte while the highlighter shades are shimmery. The color pay off could have been better. One needs to pick shades more than twice to get proper amount of color on the eyes. The stay of the eyeshadow is good as it easily stays for 4-5 hours with a light eye makeup base beneath. The survival of the shades might differ depending on the climate and skin type. The shades do fall out a little while application but the best part is that there is enough spacing in between the colors to avoid mixing these up while picking the colors from the palette.
Overall Essence Quattro Eye Shadow Over the Taupe has shades of black and gray and highlighters too for smoky eye makeup looks. The stay and the texture is excellent but the pigmentation could have been better. Otherwise this is a budget buy for makeup lovers.
