Look: Maybelline Green with Envy Quickie
From several readers’ comments, it sounded like there was trouble using this quad, but I didn’t seem to share a lot of the concerns readers had. When I originally tested it, I just did one eye (the other eye was something else…), so I figured I’d at least do both eyes so it would be visually acceptable. So, I threw on this SUPER, SUPER quick look after I got home from school (which is why the mascara is dusty–I was wearing mascara already–only removed my eyeshadow from earlier in the day but kept the mascara on).
The colors definitely showed up on me, and I just threw on UDPP as a base since it was the closest thing to me when I put this on. Just used MAC 239 to apply and do any blending, along with the 226 for the crease. I was a bit hurried (I have a ton of cases to read!) when I did all this (think about three or four minutes), so I don’t think I spread the UDPP evenly on my lid, but otherwise I really didn’t encounter difficulty using these. I took my brush, tapped it into the eyeshadow, then I patted it onto my lid; rinse and repeat! The champagne shade was the only shade that felt a little on the powdery side for me. Not better than a lot of my high-end eyeshadows, but some of the better drugstore eyeshadows I’ve tried in the past five years.
I don’t know if it helps, but I thought I’d share my method and how everything turned out for me with some photographic evidence, LOL! 🙂
