WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
I first just want to say sorry that this review has taken me over 2 months to complete! I’ve been so preoccupied with other stuff that this review just got pushed back again and again. So sorry! But here are my thoughts of this amazing quad!

Like many youtube gurus and beauty bloggers, I’m also loving this quad! This has definitely been one of the go-to quads that I own. For a smokey effect, the colours look great and it’s so easy to apply and to blend. Thus, whenever I feel uninspirational with my makeup, I would turn to this quad. I love how it has an application guide on the back of the product and it even has indication words of where to put the shadows printed onto the shadows itself. The velvet-tip applicator also really helps to blend the shadows better. It’s not very often that I like the applicators that comes with shadow quads, but Maybelline has definitely changed my opinion about that. The applicator is amazingly well made, which makes me love this quad even more. There are also many, many colours to choose from and with the retail price ranging from $4.99 (on sale at Wal-Mart or Shoppers) to $7.95, it’s a definite buy! I haven’t been able to get my hands on other colours yet because I’m still waiting for a sale. But when that happens, I’ll definitely purchase a few more of these quads.

RATING
Product (5/5)
Cost (5/5) – Extremely affordable for a quad.
Ease of Use (5/5) – Great application guide on the back of product.
Packaging (5/5) – Just because I love the velvet-tip applicator!
