Favorite Summer Eye Shadow Palettes

Hey guys and dolls,

So summer is sadly coming to an end soon and I thought it could be fun to show you my most used, worn, and loved eye shadow palettes from this summer…

Favorite_Summer_palettesI have to say I have a mighty eye shadow collection so using up product is definitely hard for me, especially since I try and switch it up daily so everyone can be loved equally ๐Ÿ˜€ย  But I’ve been totally gravitating towards fun pastel pinks and lavenders as well as beautiful bronzes and corals.

One of my favorite palettes (and a new one for that matter) for creating a beautiful bronzed and coral eye has got to be my Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Coral Oasis (you can find a full review and swatches here) Its budget friendly, super pigmented and has every color you need to create a full look…what more could a girl ask for!!??

Maybelline_Eyestudio_CoralOasisQuadI also recently bought the Too Faced Summer Eyes palette…this thing is wow. Again all the colors you need to create a day or night look. Plus this bad boy is totally rockable and appropriate for those autumn days ahead of us!! (check out my full review and swatches here)

TooFaced_SummerEye_1As for my beloved pastel shades the Lime Crime D’Antoinette palette has been a huge fave of mine since before summer too. Fully pigmented matte pastel shades are really hard to come by and these fit the bill to a T!!! (review and swatches here if your interested)

LimeCrime_DAntoinette_PaletteIve also been loving the Dolce & Gabbana Eden Quad for a real ethereal summer look (full review and swatches can be found here)

Dolce&Gabbana_Eden_Quad_1Of course I have many other favorites but these have been absolute stand outs for me this summer. Whats been your favorite eyeshadow or palette for this season?

Review & Swatches: Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Coral Oasis

Hey guys,

I recently did a really pretty coral eye look using the Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Coral Oasis. So I thought I’d review and swatch it for you ๐Ÿ˜€

Maybelline_Eyestudio_CoralOasisQuad

I got this product at Walgreens for $9.79 but it can also be purchased at any other American drugstore or here through Amazon.com for all my internationals ๐Ÿ˜€

The packaging is fairly simple, made form plastic including a double ended sponge tip applicator that I threw out immediately. The packaging feels a bit flimsy but on the plus side its super slim and small so its convenient for on the go or for traveling.

The quad comes with 4 beautiful shimmery shades.

Maybelline_Eyestudio_CoralOasisQuad_PinkThe first shade from the left is a gorgeous shimmery pink toned champagne shade. Amazing pigmentation, super creamy texture and amazing longevity when worn with a primer.

Maybelline_Eyestudion_CoralOasisQuad_GoldThe second shade is a yellowy gold shimmer shade. This is a really beautiful shade and compliments the warm tones beautifully. Great pigmentation, blendability, texture and longevity.

Maybelline_Eyestudio_CoralOasisQuad_CoralThe third shade is a beautiful coral orange with a satin finish. This is my favorite shade, great color pay off, another buttery smooth shade with great lasting power.

Maybelline_Eyestudio_CoralOasisQuad_BrownThe last shade is a deep brown with aubergine undertones. This one also has a satin finish. As is the case with the other shades this one is also highly pigmented, very smooth, easily blendable and great long lasting power.

Here’s a look I created with all the shades plus the shade Mermaid from the Too faced Summer Eyes Palette ( I’ll have a review and swatches up of this guy at some point this week!!).

THE VERDICT:

9/10 for this great budget friendly quad. It has every color you need to create a fresh day time eye or smoked out for those warm summer evenings. The pigmentation, texture, blendability and staying power is wonderful on every single shade. The fallout was minimal, I just made sure to tap the extra product off my brush before application ๐Ÿ˜€ The only down fall to this product was the flimsy packaging. Otherwise this product was spot on perfect!!
