Essence Quattro Eyeshadow 'Magenta and Me!' Review, Swatch, FOTD

Hey all!

Today I have a gorgeous affordable eyeshadow quad from Essence Cosmetics to review! Essence Quattro Eyeshadow in the shade ‘Magenta and Me!’.

Ever since I started blogging, I became really experimental with eyeshadows! The shades in this quad are so gorgeous … I knew I had to give it a try! Let’s move on to the review.

There are 4 shades in total… arranged in overlapping circular pattern. Starting with my most favorite shade in the quad- the magenta pink! It is the star color in the palette and drop-dead gorgeous. Next there is that navy blue shade… my second favorite! I love dark shades of eyeshadows. Next to that we have a beautiful silver shade. And the last one is a pearl white highlighting shade.

Here I have used Lakme Absolute White Intense concealer as base in the bottom part...  It intensifies the color pay off even more !

Keeping the price in mind, I was not expecting much! But I was left amazed after seeing the color pay off. The pigmentation is pretty incredible. A base underneath definitely makes the color pop more! The texture is buttery smooth and absolute delight to work with. All the shadows have satiny finish and are highly blendable.

Staying power is decent. I get 3-4 hours of wear time without primer. After that the color intensity fades but the shadows do not crack or crumble which is a big thumbs up! I am sure, a good primer will help to elongate the wear span.

Wearing navy blue shade thickly along lash line and smudged it out with the magenta pink shade! Also the white highlighting shade on my brow bone and inner corner!

Quick Checkpoints:

Likes:
  • Beuatiful shades
  • Buttery smooth texture and satiny finish
  • Affordable
  • Cute packaging
  • Decent staying power
Dislikes:
  • No applicator provided (not really a con as I rarely use the sponge applicators which comes with eyeshadows)
  • Attachment of a small mirror would have been helpful for touch ups.
Final Word:

I am simply in love with the shades and this eye shadow quad! I will definitely buy other palettes from this range. Highly recommended!!
