The Salma Hayek Beautiful Blends Eye Quad allows you to create a perfect neutral look that shades, highlight and defines. Check out my swatches and thoughts.
This is some very unique packaging. Closed, it looks like a flower bulb that has not bloomed. When you open it, it reveals 4 colors arranged on their own petals and an eyeshadow applicator right in the middle. I thought this was a cute concept. Opening is really simple, there are little grooves on the side of the petals.
1. Toasted Almond
2. Shimmering Bronze
4. Frosted Blush
Formula of the shadows is silky smooth and easy to apply. The colors pick up will no matter what medium you use- finger, sponge, brush, whatever. The colors stand out more with a primer. The colors blend very well. I will not lie and tell you I applied this without a primer. So I get 12 hours with no creasing.
Overall, this is a nice quad for the price. I even took the time to do an eye of the day with it (gasp).
I applied it exactly like it says on the box: Champagne Gold on the lid, Shimmering Bronze in the crease, Frosted Blush as the highlight, and Toasted Almond in the outer corner and along the lash line. I lined with Nuance Lasting Wear Gel Liner and used Rocket Volum’ Express mascara on my lashes. Oh and I primed with UDPP Eden (matte). I went light in the crease. I can get out of hand honey.
Nuance Salma Hayek Beautiful Blends Eye Quad retails for $8.99 and is available at CVS (online and in stores).
