My experience with Maybelline EyeStudio Color Plush Silk EyeShadow Quad- PLUM PASSION:

Packaging: These Maybelline quads come in a sleek plastic case that has a transparent lid. These quads come with a dual end sponge applicator. There is nothing extra ordinary about the packaging. Just a simple plastic case with all the four eye shadows packed.

Texture: These are really very soft, so much so that these are easily prone to breaking and crumbling. A little mishandling and your eye shadow will loose its shape. They are easy to blend and smooth in application. All the four shades in the quad have shimmer in them. The first and the last (darkest) shade ha some fall outs, indeed the darkest color has major fall outs. The rest two do not have any fall outs.

  • First shade is a Semi-sheer iridescent lilac.
  • Second shade is a Semi-sheer violet with fine golden shimmer, this color gives the evident golden sheen.
  • Third shade is bright orchid with fine golden glitter, I love this shade the most. This shade can be worn individually all over the lids too.
  • Fourth Shade is a dark purple with fine multi-colored glitter but has a semi sheer pay off. This shade is the only shade that was low in quality and was a little uneasy to blend.

Pigmentation: Though the three colors out of the four shades are semi sheer but they are easily buildable. They have decent color pay off and I have no complains on this front.

My Take: These eye shadows are very easy to blend and are so soft to feel. They are applied smoothly and have nice color pay off. Two – Three dab motions are enough to work with these sheer colors.

The only color that I had a hard time with was the darkest color. It was more powdery in comparison to the other shades from the quad and had major fall outs.
Without a primer or concealer the eye shadows stayed for some 3-4 hours after which they begun to crease.

But with primer and concealer underneath, I was amazed with the staying power, It stayed for some 8 hours on the go after which I intentionally wiped it off with my all time favorite makeup remover, Baby Oil.

What I Don’t Like About Maybelline EyeStudio Color Plush Silk EyeShadow Quad- PLUM PASSION:

Will I Recommend: Yes these are decent eyeshadows for the price at which these are offered. But these were a limited edition so availability might be an issue.
