I get shocked looking at my own makeup stash sometimes. Because makeup and me were distant relatives and now I feel like makeup in my dressing table is breeding. Yes, literally!!! The first two lipsticks that my mom bought and I added to my stash have become great-grand-boring parents to so many great-grand-colorful children 😛 Lolzzz! I am talking ‘blushes’ and ‘contours’ these days and my husband feels cheated 😀 Sorry honey! You didn’t see that coming when you first met me because I ‘concealed’ it 😛 hahaha…OMG 😛 Alright, so today I am talking about a really cute City Color Blush Quad which I received in one of my Fabbags.
The Blush Quad
My Experience With the Product
Let me tell you that I am a ‘beginner’ when it comes to putting on makeup but I understand makeup really well and will try it soon. I know a few of you are happy that you are not the only one in the world with the same skill set. 😛 This blush from City color has four shades,
- Lightest shade – Can be used as a highlighter
- Brown shade – Can be used for contouring
- Light brown shade- Can be used for contouring or blush
- Light Pink – Pretty as a blush
Take a look at the pictures closely
The shades are decent but not long lasting. They are good for sometime and need touch ups. I loved the third and fourth shade as a blush. It gives a nice shimmery glow after blending a while. I used the first shade beneath my eyebrow arch, nose and cupid bow. It worked pretty well as a highlighter. I am yet to try a proper look with this quad but I thought of reviewing it first. The powder is well pigmented and its easy to apply. So overall a decent product for the price. It serves the purpose of highlighting, contouring and blush all in one quad. They also have other shade options and every palette is as multi-purpose in use, as this one.
Let me sum up for you,
♥ Good buy for that price
♥ Nicely pigmented shades
♥ All in one- highlighting, contouring and blush in a single quad
♥ Many shade options available
♥ The lightest shade woks great as a highlighter
♥ Two shades have shimmer that is subtle yet gorgeous
🙁 This quad is difficult to get since its availability online is restricted to few sites only
🙁 No applicator brush given with this quad
🙁 The cakes break easily and so it must be stored carefully
🙁 Packaging is not so good
🙁 Needs frequent touch-ups
Will I Recommend this Product?
If you are a beginner like me, YES! Buy it to try on some makeup lessons without spending huge bucks on high-end products.
