Revlon ColorStay Eye Shadow Quad

As you may or may not know there have been many little 3 for 2 deals floating around in certain drugstores across all beauty items (Superdrug & Boots). So a few weeks back whilst picking up a few bits I decided to grab a Revlon Eye Shadow Quad as they really appealed to me. I went for the quad 500 - Addictive, which includes four neutral shades. I have to admit I don't often pick up eye shadows from Revlon, although I do quite like the brand, so I wasn't sure what to expect. 

I have to say I've been quite impressed with this little quad. The shades included work lovely together, they give a lovely soft finish on the eyes and they have fairly good lasting power (Revlon claims 16 hours - I'd say around 7/8). All four shades included are not shimmery so it's easy to achieve a soft, flattering look. These eye shadows aren't hugely pigmented which may be a problem for some people, but personally this doesn't bother or affect me - I think it adds to the softer daytime look. It also looks lovely when blended together due to the softer consistency. 

I have found these eye shadows are easy to blend and I have had no problems with creasing or smudging. I'm a big fan of the texture of these eye shadows as they're nice and soft. 
This quad comes with your standard little double sided sponge brush. The packaging is basic, but nice and sturdy. I like that the lid is mainly see through so on quick glance I'm able to see what shades are in there. These eye shadow quads are priced at £7.99. I have noticed that both Boots and Superdrug have a £2 off deal at the moment - so at the moment this can be picked up for £5.99. There is quite a variety of quads to choose from, so there is definitely something for everyone.

Overall I personally really like this quad. I love the shades and the soft finish these can achieve. I love how well they work together. It's not the best eye shadows that I've ever used but I definitely find myself often reaching for this during the day. Something about it really appeals to me - possibly as it gives the look/finish that ticks many of my boxes. I often find myself using the bottom right brown shade as an alternative to brown eyeliner - it looks lovely. The 4 step look demonstrated on the back of the packaging is also a look I often opt for with this quad - love it :)

Have you tried any of Revlon's Quads?
