Maybelline Eye Studio Copper Chic Eyeshadow Quad

Maybelline Eye Studio Copper Chic Eyeshadow Quad

Maybelline Eye Studio Copper Chic Eyeshadow Quad ($9.99) is a stunning combination of slightly warmed-up neutrals.  I was really hoping Maybelline was going to knock it out of the park with this combination, but they didn’t quite hit the mark for me.  They’re so-so but just not stellar.  I’d still consider it pretty good by drugstore beauty standards, though–but it’s only decent against popular favorites like MAC, Make Up For Ever, and Urban Decay.

It includes a champagne-pink with a frosty finish, subdued copper, muted golden bronze, and darker chocolate bronze with light gold shimmer.  My biggest issue with these eyeshadows was just that they applied sheerly, so it was difficult to get as much dimension as I’d like on my eyes.  Like the other Maybelline palettes, these are softer eyeshadows that have to be applied with less sweeping and more packing/tapping techniques.

These excel best over a more metallic base (think MAC Indianwood or Rubenesque Paint Pots), because these eyeshadows grab onto the base well and then you can get the colors to pop and look more like themselves!  I’m still, overall, impressed by the quality of the Maybelline Eyeshadow Quads, but none have been quite as good as Good with Gold thus far.

    I really like this. And since I am a huge fan of sheer colour, I would love to try it out. Thanks for reviewing it!

  2. These look really pretty! I have one Maybelline shadow, from the improved formula but not the studio line, and I find the best way to pack on the colour is with a sponge-tip applicator or your finger. Brushing it out always sheers them out for some reason!

    This is the only Maybelline quad I own, but I like it. It really reminds me of the bronzy quad that Mac put out with Spring Forecast. I love your reviews of these quads! Esp. since we have them in Canada!

    I recently bought this and, while I was hoping to love it, it really just kind of meh to me. The colors are really pretty and swatch like a dream, but I’m in agreement with you that it’s just hard to get a lot of definition. I find I like these better when mixed with other products than used all together.

    I bought this the other day, and for me, I just hated the way the colors looked with my eye color. I have brown eyes and it might be just me, but the colors, especially the second from the left was way to orange.
