You may remember me lemming the L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Color Smokes Quad Eye Shadow in Lavender Smokes in my post last week. I fell in love this quad when I saw that It was purpley colors coordinated for brown eyes. I'm happy to report that it was easy to find at Target, yay for no searching.
The colors are beautiful to look at but a pain in the butt to swatch. I had to dig to get the colors you see in these swatches. They were very easily blendable though. These were swatched without a base. I'll be posting a FOTD featuring this quad shortly but you'll see that with a NYX jumbo pencil as a base, the color from this quad pops.
I noticed immediately that there are two MAC dupes in this quad. Color number 4 is a dupe for All that Glitters and color 3 is a dupe for Retrospeck. For the $5 I paid for this quad in store, I'd say it's worth it to get the dupes especially since you can use color 4 for so many other looks.
Swatched in natural light. So much for pigmentation...
What do you think of these new quads by L'Oreal? I enjoy having premade quads so looks are easy to throw together. Speaking of drugstore makeup, has anyone bought the new ELF Beauty Book Palettes? They're only $5 and feature a slew of yummy colors that are surprisingly pigmented. Beverly from AFullBeat had me searching all over Target only to find them out of stock :( They will be mine, oh yes, they will be mine.
