A neutral eye shadow quad is a must for anyone who desires to use eye makeup on a daily basis. Neutral does not necessarily mean browns. Any color that subtly enhances your skin tone will do. You will be requiring a matte MLBB (my lids but better) shade, a slightly deeper one for defining your crease, a shimmery or matte highlighter shade and a darker shade for the outer corner.
I never knew all these when I started with makeup. I got this quad without even realising its worth or importance. Now it has become a staple in my daily makeup routine. It is the Maybelline New York Expert Eyes – Chai Latte eye shadow quad.
It is one of the best and versatile quads Maybelline or for that matter any drug store brand has ever made.
It has 4 cleverly chosen shades, required for creating an array of looks ranging from subtle every day to super Smokey night look.
Two of the shades ie., the beige brown and dark brown are matte.
The metallic copper one is shimmery.
The highlighter shade has mild shimmers to reflect the light.
The shades are all well pigmented and are very easy to work with.
The highlighter is only a tad chalky when compared to the rest.
All the shades, including the metallic copper have very minimal fall outs.
I am not sure if I will be able to buy a backup of this one here in India but I am planning to take this quad with me and buy dupes from Inglot. I do have MUA undressed palette but then I feel Inglot will be much better in terms of quality.
