I got this for less then $3 at my local Krogers, and I still feel bad. This is one of the chalkiest eye shadows I have ever used. I know $3 doesn't do me much, but compared to the other cheap d/s e/s out there for less, this is poor quality. The sponge applicators are useless, needless to say, and the texture is so drying that it hurts when I try to blend.
Wow, finally nude colors that aren't too yellow. I love how the shades in this quad are neutral, earthy tones. The texture is smooth and easy to blend. The staying power is good. This is great for everyday wear. I would buy this again.
I got it about $3.60, quite cheap. This color is very nice, not much pigmented. I can apply this on every occasion.
i was pretty surprised with this product...its pretty good especially for the low price...the colours work really good together but they do look good with other colours or seperate too...they are not that high pigmented and crease a little bit without a primer..but since this product is pretty cheap thats fine...
I am surprised by the quality of these ! I bought this at a very cheap price in the US. They apply really well and hold on all day. The colors of Mocha Motion are very nice. Would buy this again if I go again to the US !
I was looking for a neutral quad and decided to check these out since Rite Aid had them BOGO a few weeks ago. I think flamencovixen below did a perfect job of describing them, but my take on them is that they are: Ivory (designated brow bone), brown with a warm pinkish undertone (designated for lid), gray with shimmer (designated for crease) and matte taupe (designated for outer corner). The reformulation works well. The colors go on smoothly, and show up well. They are also easy to layer, so if you don't get as much color as you want at first, you can always go back for another layer. I don't follow the package designations myself, I find it looks to "bruisy" for my coloring/eye shape. Instead I use the ivory on my lid and the rest of the colors to shad and line. I like these more than I thought I would, I was originally after the other color I bought with these, Designer Chocolates, but I think these will work out well too.
I got this as a bonus with an xxl mascara, and it turned out to be a perfect neutral palette! I use it all the time, and I love the different shades of "mocha" and the awesome ivory highlight color. The eyeshadow pigments are surprisingly really good. My only beef with this is the applicators -they SUCK. They break so easily, and are useless. Otherwise, this is a really good quad to have for those "neutral" days.
I don't remember the last time I have purchased Maybelline eyeshadow. I have always had the impression that their eyeshadows aren't good quality. But with Maybelline being BOGOF and because they have released their eyeshadows with a "new formula," I thought that I would give it a whirl.
I am partial to cool browns/taupes so I immediately was drawn to the "Mocha Motion" quad. All the shades are matte (one of the shades seems to have some shimmer/micronized sparkles but when I apply that color on my eyes, I don't notice any shimmer or sparkles).
Each color is meant for the lid, the crease, the browbone, and the outer corner (though I don't follow these designations).
The four colors are: a medium neutral brown for the lid(this seems to be a slightly warm shade because it has some red in it); a greyed taupe for the crease, a medium taupe for the outer corner and a cream shade for the brown bone.
My favorite colors are the greyed taupe and the medium taupe because I like cool-toned eyeshadows.
I don't find these eyeshadows chalky at all. Now, they are not super pigmented but they are not sheer either. I think the colors are great for an everyday face - quite professional and not bright at all.
The packaging is cheap - I don't like the plastic cover because it feels flimsy and breakable. You get two sponge applicators, which appear to give you more color than a brush would.
I got them BOGOF (and with a coupon) so I got the eyeshadow for cheap.
