Maybelline Quads in Natural Smokes and Chai Latte! Review and Swatches

4 years ago

Hello everyone! I hope you guys are doing well, I would like to share my recent haul from Rite Aid, I had extra reward bucks left over from a prior purchase so I decided to use them to try some maybelline quads. The quads that I got were in Natural Smokes (left) and Chai Latte (right) I have heard such great things about them so I decided to try them out. So these are just some of my opinions on them so far.

Natural Smokes Quad
-Really nice for a smokey eye look
-The colors are decently pigmented, the most pigmented was the darkest shade
- It is a versatile quad, you would either create a dark smokey look or a nice subtle day look using the lighter shades.
-Price-low cost quad, and pretty good for the price

-Not soft to the touch, is not easy to pick up on brush.
-The feel gritty or chalky
-The only soft shadow is the darkest one (liner shade)
-Have to build up layers to have the colors show on eye

Overall: I feel okay about this quad, it is not the one I reach for a lot. It is quite dark on me when i use all the colors as suggested, and I don`t like the grittyness of the shadows. I would give this probably a 3/5.

Chai Latte Quad
-I really like the color selection
-Contain mattes and shimmers shadows
- Nice for a everyday look
-Shadows are relatively soft, softer than Natural Smokes Quad
-Nice pigmented (shadows swatched without primer or base)

- These shadows also have the gritty feel to them
-The softest shadow again is the darkest one in the quad

Overall: I like this palette much more than the Natural Smokes, the shadows are softer and I feel like it is a prettier quad compared to it. By itself I feel like it is a good buy because it is relatively cheap and can be used to create really pretty and easy looks. I would give this quad a 4.5/5 just for the grittyness of the shadows.

Thanks for reading!
