Hey everyone! Today I’m sharing swatches of two Maybelline Eye Studio Eye Shadow quads.
Price: $8-$10 depending on the store
Colors: Copper Chic (permanent) and Violet Volt (limited edition)
Amount of Product: 2.5 grams or .09 ounces
Animal Testing: Maybelline is not a cruelty free brand
These shadows have nice color payoff, feel smooth, and in my experience, they’ve lasted well throughout the day. (I always use eye shadow primer.) I think in a majority if not all of the Maybelline Eye Studio Quads, the colors are either shimmery or glittery. I’ve noticed fall out with these shadows especially with shades that contain larger glitter pieces. (The second silver shade in Violet Volt is more of a sheer, glitter topcoat as opposed to an opaque silver.)
Overall I think these are very nice drugstore shadows! These Eye Studio quads seem to be a bit higher in quality than the Expert Wear quads (although I can’t give a great comparison since I’ve only ever used a couple of the Expert Wear quads.) Also, I like the sponge tip applicators that come in these quads. The tips are a little smaller and more tapered than the sponge tips we typically see in drugstore palettes, and I find that they can be really helpful for packing on color or for inner corner and brow highlights.
Thanks for stopping by and reading. I hope you found this post helpful!
