I love Estee Lauder eyeshadows but these colors aren't very nice for my skin. They are also very sheer.
This gives a gorgeous sheer colour. I this this would be great for all eye colours, maybe especially brown. I like this for everyday wear, very subtle and flattering.
I got this during gift time and I am quite disappointed in the texture and pigmentation of these eyeshadow shades. Even with base and primer, it comes off as very sheer wash of colour. Great for people who want a sheer wash, subtle colour on their eyelids. I prefer my Mac, Urban Decay, Too Faced and Coastal Scents eyeshadow because they are very pigmentation and vibrant. I will not re purchase Estee Lauder eyeshadow. However, I love their foundation line!
I got this as a free gift and I would consider getting the full size quad. These shadows are wearable everyday and they are very flattering.
I used this a couple of times when I was at my moms place overnight and didn't take any make up with me and decided to move on a party in impulse afterwards as my mom has Estée Lauder-everything (lipsticks, foundation, e/s, mascara..). At first I was a bit sceptical, as this looks pretty warm to me and I have very fair and cool skintone. Except for ivory, which I already purchased for myself and enjoy using it very much, a beautifl natural shade.
If you have ever used Estée Lauders e/s, you'll know already that they're extremely finely milled and have a very buttery texture and are overall a dream to blend and have a great lasting power without creasing or fading. This Quad is no exception in that matter.
I was very surprised to see that the colours actually matched quite good to my skintone and got lots of compliments on my eyes every time when I was wearing this. I still didn't purchase the Amber Honey Quad for myself though, as I still prefer MACs Satin Taupe, Vex, Shroom & Co. for example and think they (especially Vex and Satin Taupe) suit me better somehow but I may purchase this when I run out of my current brown e/s and feel like buying something new, but for now, I'll stick to the ones I own.
But if you feel like you need a quad of good quality which you can use for the daytime and the evening, you should check thisone out. =)
I gave this pallete an average rating because the colors are ordinary. However, I still think that the quality is fantastic, it's flattering and I think that on fairer skinned individuals this would be AMAZING. On me its a little blah, kind of blends into my skin in a bad way but I think that it was more my fault for choosing the wrong palette. Still I use the lightest shade as a brow highlight and the darkest as an everyday shadow every now and then.
Edit - I use this eyeshadow pallete almost every single day. I just realized its not blah - its neutrals with a bit of a kick. It gives me a bit of like a retro type coloring but its SUPER flattering. I think Estee Lauder just knows what looks good on women!
I received this quad in a swap and I'm loving it so far! The shadows are very buttery and pigmented, and they give me a great bronze smokey eye. Will definitely repurchase...once I can fork up the cash >.<
My mom actually got this product for free since she buys so much stuff from Estee Lauder. She gave this to me when I was first getting into makeup. I'd say this has really good neutral shades that any girl should have. The quality is pretty good too. I've never really combined all 4 shades into a smokey eye or whatever, but I've worn them all individually. Gorgeous colors, especially the shimmery ones. Just make sure, like most other shadows, that you wear a base under it or it does come off easily.
Great neutral colors for a natural look. You could do a natural smoky eye, which is why I bought this quad. The eyeshadows are silky and I think pigmentation is excellent for the light colors.
Pretty bad pigmentation, you could get more from a ds brand. The eyeshadow pans are also pretty small, so you don't even get a lot. Overall, I just can't say any good things about this because the pigmentation is just so horrible.
