Me? I’m holding them close like my unborn children.

Maybelline Eye Studio Plush Silk Eyeshadow Quads aren’t without their downfalls but for the most part they are a big solid yay for the Muse.
Following up on an Asian release these quads were originally deemed Maybelline Eye Studio Diamond Glow Eyeshadow Palettes (See my friend Paris’s review when they released in M’asia). Flash forward a few months down the line and here they are making a guest starring appearance in the US market. You should mark your calender this is one major step for women kind. This type of makeup is RARELY seen in North American drugstores and it’s pure Asian by nature right down to the formula. Take it from me, I know Asian makeup, these are very much Asian by design.
For me they are a winner as I mentioned. The formula is a beautiful silky, creamy blend that’s pigment and applies like a pure dream. The quad is made up of three shades of shadow and one liner shade. Two shades are used to contrast, one to highlight, and finally one to line. They are stunning quads and pretty much mimic many shadow formulas that can be found on the Asian market but not the US. You’d be hard pressed to locate a shadow with this formula in the US.
Here’s the thing…
If you’ve worked with Asian makeup before you’re bound to love these but if you haven’t you’ll either think, “WOW!” or you’ll think “NAY”! They quite remind me of KATE Dual Carat Eyeshadow as the formula is identical almost. The problems arise from the fact that the formula can in some cases prove difficult to work with particularly because of shimmery fall out and contrasting, blending. Yes, you will experience fall our and yes they are very shimmery. Upon trying to contrast shades it may prove a pain because the colors will meld together so you do need a certain amount of patience and skill to get them to contrast and blend. I have a difficult time with this myself but it hasn’t stopped me from loving them like a cute, fuzzy puppy.
I hauled six for myself and I’m very pleased with them!
At $9.99 each or in some cases cheaper during sales plus a variety of shades (I think there are 10 or 12 shade selections to choose from!) you really can’t beat the price, formula, and quality on the Maybelline Eye Studio Plush Silk Eyeshadow Quads. I absolutely loved them.
Very much a Muse Approval for purchase. You need to try at least one, bet you get hooked soon after!
