Daytime

Anastasia Daytime Eyeshadow Quad ($32.00 for oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that features four warm-toned shades–gold, yellowy brown, orange, and rose gold. Those who enjoy the typical Anastasia eyeshadow formula should enjoy this quad, especially with primer, but I found the shimmery shades did not perform as well without a dampened brush. The mattes were a little dusty in the pan, but they both blended well and retained their intensity on my skin.

Sunny

Sunny is a bright, medium gold with stronger, warm orange undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The eyeshadow had a denser, slightly thicker consistency that made it harder to apply evenly to certain areas of my skin, as I had to buff and work the powder against my skin to smooth it out. Alternatively, one could use a dampened brush to apply, which helped give it more slip and smoothed out the application instantly. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for eight hours before starting to crease on me.

Formula Overview

$12.00/0.06 oz. - $200.00 Per Ounce

Anastasia Eyeshadow is supposed to be a “finely-milled, highly-pigmented” powder eyeshadow. There are several different finishes, and the performance can be better or worse depending on the finish, though it also ranges from shade to shade. On average, the formula is semi-opaque to opaque, lightly dusty to buttery, wears seven to nine hours, and is fairly blendable. The Metallic and Titanium finishes seem to be the best-performing to me, but there are some really standout mattes and shimmers as well. I have not tried the sparkle, satin, or velvet finishes as extensively as the other finishes, personally.

Sand Castle

Sand Castle is a muted, light-medium yellowed brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was opaque, while the consistency was soft, lightly dusty, and drier to the touch, but it applied evenly without losing its intensity and blended out easily along the edges. It seemed to darken just slightly, almost going grayish at times, which almost worked out since it was in my crease area, but it definitely changes noticeably during application. It lasted nicely for seven and a half hours on me before it started fade a bit.

Papaya

Papaya is a soft, medium orange–almost like a burnt orange–with a mostly matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that was easy to blend out but not prone to fallout nor did it lose its intensity when applied to my skin. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading slightly on me.

Rose Quartz (Daytime)

Rose Quartz (Daytime) is a light-medium, rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my bare lid, though I felt like the shimmer was more muted without applying it with a dampened brush. The consistency was soft, blendable, and easy to work with without fallout. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed slight fading.

I wish these had been released as new permanent singles and just have the case as a limited edition option if you bought all four shades.

This is a very pretty daytime quad for those who like these kinds of shades. I think the shades are easily duped, but are quite cohesive. Lovely eye look Christine.

I almost just took photos of the eye and took it off because it was one of the worst combos I’ve seen on myself in awhile. Just goes to show it’s all about perception!

It’s a maybe for me. I definitely want Papaya, and I like the overall scheme in general though Sand Castle which reads a little off to me, I think even a slightly warmer brown would have fit better. Depends on how it feels when I swatch in store.

This will have to get a pass from me. Nice enough shades, but I cannot see them having the depth for me to get the level of contrast I’m looking for.

I could see these really working for me (blue-grey eyes, cool leaning neutral light-medium skin), but as others have said, I’d want a darker contrast to add to it.

I agree with several others here in that there needs to be more contrast between shades for them not to look like just one shade being applied. I also think that this might work better on someone with paler eyes or blue/green. For someone with really dark, chocolate brown eyes, you might as well not where any shadow.

I know you replied to another comment and said you weren’t a fan of this eye look on yourself, but I think it is SO stunning on you! 🙂 I’m inclined to buy it just because I want to re-create that look on myself and hope it looks as good. I’ve also always been partial to those peachy-pink shades like Sunny, so that makes it more tempting.
