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. 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.

Necessary information mentioned on back side


Product:


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

Color & Pigmentation:


Shade 1:

First shade is a light color, it's a pearly white shade with silver in it. It is the lightest shade in the quad, which would be perfect for highlighting. This shade is quite well pigmented, delivers good color pay off in one swipe, so you really don't need to pick it up many times to make it look visible.

Shade 2:

The second shade is a pretty light purple/lavender shade. It can be used as an overall lid color. The shade is decently pigmented and need to layered about two times to get the proper color.

Shade 3:

It's a beautiful shimmery silver color eyeshadow. The color is decently pigmented, actually the most pigmented one in the quad. It delivers bang on color just in a singe sweep, so do take care while picking up the color. You don't want to be shimmer loaded, right!

Shade 4:

It a black shade and the darkest one in the quad. It appear to be a matte black one in the quad but it is not completely matte and have a bit of subtle sheen to it. I was expecting it to be the most pigmented one but sadly the color payoff is really poor. Even after six-seven times layering it only come like a blackish tint forget about a proper black shade.

Essence Quattro eyeshadow 01 XOXO: SWATCHES



Texture & Finish:

Shade 1:

I am overall happy with the quality of the eyeshadows in this. This one has a smooth texture, no chalk-y types. It blends beautifully delivering satin finish, with no major fall out.

Shade 2:

I liked the texture of this eye shadow as well, it nice and smooth. It has a semi matte finish with a subtle sheen to it.

Shade 3:

Again i am happy with the texture, it's smooth to touch & fine quality that blends beautifully without any major fall out. The shade is very shimmery but fine milled that gives you a perfect satin finish.

Shade 4:

Like the other three shades, i have no complaints when it comes to the quality and texture. It's very smooth to touch and easily blendable. The color pay off as i said is very poor. It's kind of a shadow of black, it's very sheer and gives semi matte finish with a subtle sheen.





Long Wearing:


Shade 1 & 3 are long wearing but i definitely recommend to use an eye primer underneath for extending the lasting time & also to increase their vibrancy. The last shade which is a black eyeshadow is really a poor one am disappointed with this shade particularly.

Value for money:


They are available online for just 349/- Indian rupees, which makes it a pretty inexpensive one. Totally value for money product.

Pros:


1. Compact case, can easily fit in any size bag/purse
2. Good choice of shadows including for creating different eyelooks
3. Most shades are decently pigmented excluding the last one
4. Smooth texture, easy to blend
5. No major fall out
6. Delivers satin to silky matte finish
7. Good quality and inexpensive product
8. Value for money buy

Cons:


1. Black eyeshadow is simply good for nothing
2. Available only online at few shopping websites

Overall Rate:

3.6/5

Verdict: Essence quattro eyeshadow 01 XOXO is a pretty little palette for creating variety of eye looks. The eyeshadows are smooth and easy blendable, with no major fall out. Most of the shades deliver satin finish. It is overall a decent quality product available at very reasonable pricing. Can be given a try, if you liked the shades provided in this.
