Limited edition for Spring, the Quadrille palette (£42) contains a warm mauve brown with a satin finish, pale golden ivory with a slight shimmer, warm pink/coral with a satin finish and a semi-matte dark brown.
The combination of shades stands out as it differs to the
usual light and airy, more pastel shades we expect from Spring collections.
The shades feel smooth and are a welcomed improvement in quality
compared to the baked quad that we normally receive (I'm so glad we are
getting an improved eyeshadow quad formula in March) as they are not dry
nor powdery and though not opaque in pigment, have significantly better
The pink/coral was always going to be tricky for me to pull off and I do
apply it sparingly and blended with the other shades.
I really like the
finished look, the warmth and pop of the coral/pink give it an
interesting twist and though not necessarily shades I would choose individually, they work really well together (and also compliment the two
Illusion d'Ombres from the collection).
I bought this from Boots.
