I received this Lancome Quad last year (always feels weird saying that.. knowing "last year" was only a few days ago lol) around September. It was given to me as a complimentary gift for sharing my opinions in surveys. I was really surprised when I saw this in my mailbox. My friend told me she got a quad and some other stuff as well and I just had to see with my own eyes! Love the quad.. it is a neutral quad.. another to add to my collection. Read on for the swatches and my honest thoughts.
♡Product(s): Sensational Effects Eye Shadow Quad Smooth Hold
♡Color: Showstopper Style
♡Can be found at: Ulta, Lancome.com, Macy's, Nordstorms, Amazon
It comes in a pretty silver duo-chrome cardboard box with their signature logo on the cover. The back has all the details of the product and the front cover is their classic signature sleek black with the rose in the corner. The inside has 4 shadows and 3 sponge tip applicators.
The colors are very pretty and wearable for everyone because they are quite neutral. A pretty cream colored highligher, metallic bronze/gold, matte medium brown as well as a matte deep brown.
The shadows are nicely pigmented and soft to the touch. Application is smooth and blends very nicely. The first swatch is with flash and the second one is in natural light by my window.
The colors are beautiful and goes on very nicely. They compliment each other and work well with other shadows as well. The packaging is travel friendly and sleek. It is shy of 1 star because of the price and partly the packaging. The price is $43.. a bit pricey in my opinion for a quad. A nice alternative would be the Maybelline Chai Latte Quad. The packaging would be better if it lost the space for the applicators, I find it unnecessary.
