Essence quad - 15 most wanted, review
This quad is from my latest Essence haul. I already have another essence quad that I abolutely love in the shade 05 to die for. So I decided to try one of the new quads. I bought the quad 15 most wanted.
Price: EU 2,95
Packaging: I actually really like the clear plastick packaging of these quads, it's sturdy, easy to open and easy to clean. you get 5 grams of shadow and I think the Little circles look really cute. It's a nice Little quad to throw in the purse.
I love the Shades in this quad, rosey golden pretty Shades BUT i am not a fan of the 3 first shadows. They look really pretty on the eyes but there is some strange gritty shimmer (not really glitter) that wont show up on your lids but you can be sure it WILL show up under your eyes no matter how careful you are. The dark shade however is really creamy and pigmented.
I was really dissapointed in this quad. I love the colors but I can't get past the shimmery fallout. I have tried putting my Foundation on after the eye makeup but the shimmer is so hard to cover or remove. So I will not be getting a lot of use out of this. But I do love the dark shade so I will try and pair that with some less shimmery single shadows in my Collection.
I really wanted to love this quad and I wish the 3 first Shades could be the same texture as the dark shade. If they were, this could probably a favorite of mine. But they are not. So... yeah. It was only about 3 euros so it's not a big loss, but I really wanted a quad with these Shades.
Have you guys tried this quad? so you hate gritty shimmer as much as me?
