Edward Bess Summer in Capri Quad Royale ($45.00 for 0.25 oz.) is described as a “beige pink.” It’s a medium-dark brown with a rosy, plummy tinge and a satiny sheen. The individual colors are: a soft peach, warm beige-peach with a satin sheen, muted, medium brown with neutral undertones, and pale peach with a satin finish. bareMinerals The Indecent Proposal is much darker, more plum, less beige. MAC Darkly my Dear is darker but similar in color. NARS Douceur is slightly browner. Burberry Cameo is rosier.

The palette is primarily marketed as a cheek product, though it can be used on the eyes. It contains four shades to “sculpt and highlight the face.” As a blush/cheek color, it’s easier to use sections but not individual shades, as only the bottom right shade is large enough to accommodate a blush brush (and even that is not that large). Summer in Capri had good, true-to-pan color payoff, but it’s a lighter shade and will not show up well on medium-dark and deeper complexions, so I would recommend it primarily for lighter skin tones.

It is subtle on my skin tone (I’m medium) and adds some definition and color without being over-the-top. The texture is soft like silk, incredibly finely-milled, and so smooth. The finish is lovely with a satiny sheen that doesn’t look shimmery or heavy on the skin and gives skin a natural-looking glow. It lasted eight and a half hours well on my skin, and it started to fade after nine hours of wear.

See this right here is pure blush perfection to me! I love really sheer, subtle blushes like this–it’s so effortless but really, really pretty! And the glow…wow! I have Monte Carlo and love it and have been meaning to pick up Summer in Capri for a while. Must definitely get on that–I think I’d reach for this one all the time! 😀

I strained hard to read it but does it say on the back label that it’s Made in Taiwan?? In that case $40 seems like highway robbery. I can’t say I’m impressed by this brand. The logo looks very similar to Tom Ford’s, especially the font. Anyways, thank you for your review, Christine.

I love how this quad looks on you Christine!! I’m always a big fan of natural looking blush that gives the healthy glow. Love the quality too!! Beside, Taiwanese cosmetics quality is right up there with Japanese and Korean in Asia, just not as well known.
Thank you for the review! I will pick one up now!!

I adore this palette! I purchase it a couple of weeks ago and have been wearing it since. I can get quite a few looks from it and I love it as a contour. The formula is exquisite and I love the glow! It looks lovely on you, the perfect touch!
