I wanted to love this so much but the metallic bronze shade in this quad applies patchy and the blending color is too cool brown for my liking. I only like the base color but I can't justify keeping the palette for just that reason so...it goes in the trash.
Who needs UD Naked when you can get the perfect neutral palette for a fraction of the cost? Chai Latte is literally my go-to palette; I use it every single day and it's lasting awhile. The crease colour (3) is my HG eyeshadow- it is THE perfect matte taupe eyeshadow. I wear 3 as a wash on my lids for daytime every day, and my since my favourite way to mix up my eyemakeup is with warm shimmery shadow, the rich bronze-gold (2) suits me perfectly. I don't do brow highlighting ever, so I never use 1 but 4 is a really pretty way to line your lids using a flat or angled brush, especially when dampened. They last all day (except 4, I sometimes use it in the crease and it, well, creases without a primer) and are a really wearable finish. 1, 2 and 4 all have gold reflective particles in them. Will always repurchase.
I like the quality of this pallet, and I think it stays on quite well throughout the day. However, I personally think the lid color is too orange looking on my skin. I'm Asian with yellow undertoned pale skin. It may be just my skin tone that makes it look orange, but I really don't like that color. I would prefer a more golden color for lid. But other than that, I like the other 3 colors, and still think it's a good product.
I've heard so many raves and even labels as "best drugstore eyeshadow palette" for Chai Latte, so I figured I may as well try it, especially for the price. I am a sucker for neutral eyeshadows, but this product just doesn't do it for me. The shadows look nice in the packaging, but on my lids they're "meh" at best. The pigmentation is decent and stays on for a good work day, but overall these are the wrong colors for my hair and skin tone. I think it'd look great on medium tones and darker features.
Love, love, loooove this! I bought the chai latte metallics.
I am not a huge fan of eyeshadows on me because a lot of shades don't compliment my eyes/complexion. Being a blue eyed girl, I stick to browns, coppers and gold. For a drugstore eyeshadow this is fairly pigmented! It's very inexpensive too!
The only thing I don't like is the brow bone shade. That doesn't seem pigmented at all.
Bought the new format chai latte based on a youtube review that I saw. The colours in this palette are nice in the pan but I feel for the price and quality - it does not hold up to the other drugstore palettes.
Base: light shimmery pale beige - doesn't really show up on my skintone
Lid : bronze brown shimmery colour - this was really the main colour that I bought this for. The colour is nice - however it is not as vibrant on my skin as Half Baked in the naked palette
Crease : light brown colour - not too pigmented
Liner: Dark Brown with shimmer - nice pigmentation
I had high hopes for this palette and I know it's much loved - however it was just not pigmented for my skin tone.
This was probably the very first eye shadow I bought when I began experimenting with makeup. It's probably my most repurchased product and I definetly consider it a staple, thought it is not completely perfect.
First off, the shades...
The highlighter is one I hardly ever use. Not very pigmented, doesn't really show up on my pasty skin. It may work better if you are tanner.
The light brown is a nice shadow for a natural look, or a subtle crease. Can look a little chalky if applied incorrectly.
The darkest brown is what I use to fill in my eyebrows. I have red undertones in my brown hair (which I dye) and no brow pencil or filler can get that color, but this shade does the trick. I don't notice the shimmer in my eyebrows. Non issue for me.
I love the gold shade. It's an easy swipe and go shade that can also be played up for a dramatic look.
All the shades have good staying power and don't crease when I use a primer. Overall, pretty good quality.
Something about the packaging bugs me. The lid can break off so easily if you're not careful. The last thing I want is for the lid to fall off. Don't want anything ruining this lovely quad.
They've changed the packaging since the picture they show on this site and they've also changed the colors a little bit but I LOVE this eyeshadow quad! I got it for around 5 dollars at Walmart and its the best drugstore quad I've used! It's wearable and cute and you can change it up anyway you want. I recommend this quad!
Great drugstore eye shadow :)
Chai Latte is the most wearable natural everyday color. But, colors are build-able and can be made to be more dramatic.
Price I paid was: $6.49
-colors are labeled base, lid, crease, and liner
-there are directions on the back on how to apply it.
-lasts a decent amount of time but wears off by the end of the day even with a primer (but it may be because I have oily lids). Usually by the end of the day its pretty much all wore off.
I love this quad! It's perfect for everyday looks for school or work. I honestly wore this almost every day for at least 2 months. I haven't found another maybelline quad that's as good of quality as these shadows in this quad. Love it!
