Maybelline Eyestudio Quad- Review + Swatches

I've very excited about this blog post and review because I have been on 
somewhat of a hunt to track down this quad. 

Maybelline released their Fall 2012 line and there have been several products that created 
quiet a buzz in the beauty world. I tend to get very wrapped up in products that get a lot 
of buzz and are highly sought after. I had to visit 3 different drug stores in my city before 
I could even get my hands on one of these quads... so it has to be good, right?! 

So, "Olive Martini" is the quad that everyone is talking about and trying to get
their hands on. 

As you can see it is a very unique palette with colors most may not have in their 
shadow collection. You get a icy beige with shimmer, a cool mint green, what appears 
to be a rich emerald green, and a copper cinnamon red brown. 

The most unique shade in this palette is by far the third. In the palette as you can tell it appears
to be a deep green. However, when swatched it could not be more different. It is frosty green that
is actually a duochrome shade that turns out to be a green with brown and redish tint. I'm probably
not doing a great job at explaining this, but there is a lot more going on in that shade that what meets
the eye. 

Here are all four swatches in natural lighting. 

And here again with a flash. Obviously, the lightest shade is at the bottom and I went up to the
darkest near my wrist. This photo allows you to see how that third shade from the bottom
(the duochrome shade) really does have a unique color. You can see the brown background, but 
the green highlights show through to give such a different color. 

I have been loving the look this quad gives and hope to post a FOTD with it this week. 
Have you tried any Fall 2012 products?

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
