I still remember my very first Elizabeth Arden (EA) goody…It was the Green Tea perfume…I was so proud of it and come to think of it, it was the time when I thought EA only made perfumes…The fact that they made make up was a total surprise to me. I still remember when I first held the EA cream blush with a puzzled expression wondering if this was the same Elizabeth! Suffice to say, I learnt a little more about make up and this eyeshadow quad was the 2nd goody I got from EA.

I have seen this along with another variation on a FnU sale but I’m not sure whether this is the same or if it’s a new and improved formula…So do check it out when you get the chance.

About the Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Eyeshadow Quad in Golden Lilac
- Colors: This quad comprises of 4 shades: a light lilac (matte), a regular brown (satin), a beige highlighter (matte) and a gun metal grey (metallic).
- Pigmentation: I am quite disappointed with this quad. With a brand name like EA, I expected better quality. For starters, the lilac color is terrible chalky! It looks like tinted powder on my lids! The beige shade is fine although I’d have preferred it to have a tiny bit of shimmer since I love slightly shiny ones to use on my brow bone and in the inner corners of my eyes. The other 2 colors are quite amazing and the color payoff is good. The gun metal shade is my fav of all! Its perfect for a smokey eye and blends like a dream!
- Texture: Except for the lilac color, all 3 shades are quite silky to the touch and blend easily..
- Staying Power: Without a primer these shadows stay on for about 4hrs and then begin to fade steadily. But with a primer it easily lasts for approx 6-7hrs.

Even though this quad does have 3 gorgeous shades, I still wouldn’t repurchase. The main reason being that if it were a cheaper quad and only 3 of 4 shades worked, I wouldn’t have minded. But this one costs too much not to be bothered by this. I’m not sure if anyone else would agree but yes, this does irk me. If I’m spending a large amount on a product, I wouldn’t like to have any major flaw in it. What do you think?
But having said all this, I do like this quad especially the gun metal shade which is perfect to be used also as a liner.

What I dislike about the Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Eyeshadow Quad in Golden Lilac
