My experience with this eyeshadow quad:


Packaging:


The eyeshadow quad has a see through, round, plastic case which is quite sleek and compact, something that one can easily take with oneself as it will easily fit in any clutch size even.
A little about the product, ingredients, shelf life along with other information is provided on the bottom. I liked the packaging but it's seems to be easily breakable if you drop it.

Essence Quattro eyeshadow 07 Over The Taupe Review



Product:


The eyeshadow quad contains four neutral color powder eyeshadows, which are perfect for creating different neutral eye looks.



Color & Pigmentation:


Shade 1:
It's a pale-off white color, which is nice for highlighting the brow bone area. The shade looks matte when you swatch, but once you blend it on skin, the subtle golden sheen starts showing off. Color pay off is between average to good, though it comes quite well pigmented on hand swatch but for eyes, i had to pick and apply it like 2 times for the color to show off properly.

Shade 2:
The second shade is a muddy beige with grey undertones. I really liked this color most in the quad but sadly color payoff is poor. I really had to layer it multiple times for the color to show properly though it's a nice color to use as a transition shade. You definitely need a eye primer underneath this shade unless you want to waste the product layering.

Shade 3:
This is cool toned dark coffee color with a pinch of grey to it. In the swatch it appears to be shimmery, it sure have silver shimmers which you would notice if you blend the color with finger  but on the eyes the shimmer does not show off(a good thing in my case) but it gives the eyeshadow a subtle sheen which looks pretty ofcourse. The color is decently pigmented, it will show up in your first attempt but nothing too dark or too pigmented, so one can add more later for intensity if needed.

Shade 4:
It's a dark chocolate shade with little golden micro shimmer present in it, though they don't appear prominently at all but does give this shadow a beautiful sheen. This is the darkest and most pigmented shade in this quad. The shade is versatile, can be used differently to achieve various looks.

Texture & Finish:


Shade 1:
This eyeshadow has a lovely, smooth texture, it's very silky not at all chalky which delivers a lovely silk-matte finish.
Shade 2:
I liked the texture of this eye shadow as well, it nice and smooth, not at all chalky. In the pan, the eyeshadow appears to have a little sheen to it but it comes completely matte on eyes.
Shade 3:
Again i am happy with the texture, it's smooth to touch and silky like a very fine quality, costly eyeshadow  :) I noticed the eyeshadow gives different kind of finish with different method of application. If i blend it with my finger, it appear more like a silky finished but once applied with a eyeshadow brush it appear to be more matte with a subtle sheen to it.
I can see myself using this shade a lot in coming season :)
Shade 4:
It is fine quality, smooth to apply and silky texture which blends beautifully on skin without feeling too powdery or chalky. Like i said for the shade 3, same applies to this as well, it you want a silky finish blend it with your fingers as it kind of helps the shimmer pigment present in it to show well. If you want a more matte look, tap it with a brush and it will appear matte with a subtle sheen.



Fall out:

I did not noticed any major fall out from any four shades.



Long Wearing:


The last two shades are quite long wearing on their own. But for the first two shades, i definitely recommend to use an eye primer underneath to not only extend the lasting time but also to increase their vibrancy specially the second shade.



Value for money:

For just 349/- Indian rupees, this compact quad is surely a hit.


Pros:


1. Sleek and compact
2. Good, complete package for creating neutral eye looks
3. Most of the colors have decent pigmentation
4. Very smooth texture
5. No fall out almost
6. Delivers matte to silky matte finish
7. Easy on pocket, good quality


Cons:


1. First two shades require, layering multiple times
2. Light shades need a primer underneath


Overall Rate:

3.7/5


Verdict: Essence quattro eyeshadow 07 Over the taupe is lovely little palette for creating different neutral eye looks. The eyeshadows have very smooth and silky texture, delivers semi matte finish with a hint of sheen and have almost no fall out. Though the lighter shades need layering multiple times to show up properly and does not last longer but then we have eye primer for that, right? Overall i liked the shades included in this quad, it's like a full package for creating a neutral eye look, it has a highlighting shade, a transcition color and two dark shades to play and create various looks! I only wish the light shades were long lasting but overall a complete value for money!
