The Amber Adventure e/s quad is a part of Maybelline's Spring 2007 color story, "City Safari."But before I even talk about the colors in this quad, I suppose I should say something about how Maybelline has improved the quality of their e/s, because, prior to caving in to the colors in this set, I HATED Maybelline's shadows in general. They were chalky, unpigmented, and best left sitting on the d/s shelves.Not too long ago, Maybelline reformulated their e/s, and all I can say is WOW! They now have various finishes (pearl, metallic, etc.), and - gasp! - COLOR. You'd think that maybe they could've taken some money away from their ad campaigns to devote to figuring out how to improve their products long ago ... but I digress ;) ... While I can't say much about their matte/satin shades (one single shade that I tried ended up being returned because it just lacked pigmentation), I can comment on the metallic shades, and they are fantastic for a d/s product! So make a note if checking these out: metallic/shimmery = pigmented; matte = not so much.Also, one more important note: the ones you want to try are the quads that have WORDS imprinted on them (Lid, Crease, Brow, etc) -- I found that the Maybelline display had old ones mixed with new ones, so be aware of what you're picking up!As for this LE quad, Amber Adventure contains the following shades:* LID - highly metallic orangey gold, similar to MAC Amberlights* CREASE - matte espresso brown* BROW BONE - highly shimmery light creamy brown, maybe similar to MAC Shroom in color* OUTER CORNER - highly metallic orangey copper shadeThese metallic shades are just incredibly pigmented, especially when used wet as a liner -- they make my blue eyes pop! Definitely well worth taking a look at, especially if it's gotten me to write a review THIS long on a d/s product LOL!
