When it comes to makeup, I’m one of those people who thinks it all comes down to the eyes. Ever since I first started wearing makeup in my teenage years, I’ve always focused on making my eyes stand out as much as possible. Sure, I love a good blush and lip color, but to me it’s the perfect shade of eye shadow that can instantly take my look from day to night.
During the day I’m always out running around the city for meetings and errands, and sometimes those days lead right into a dinner, happy hour, or nighttime event. Ideally I’d like to be able to stop at home and re-do my makeup, but unfortunately I don’t always get the chance to do that. It’s on those jam-packed days that I need to be able to go right into my purse and pull out a few key makeup items to freshen up my look and get ready for the night ahead.
Before even applying the shadows, I instantly loved the color combinations of the palettes: Showstoppers, Fair and Square, and Shimmering Sands. Each of the palettes contain four shades to create multiple looks – two neutrals and two party-ready shimmers.
What I love about the shadows and shimmers most is that they have a smooth and creamy consistency. This makes it easy to blend and combine the shades together, which lends to a more natural look than other shadows I’ve tried. It also stays on better and longer than loose shadow does.
Target also sent me some other products from the Sonia Kashuk line: their Illuminating Bronzer, Satin Luxe Lip Color, and three shades of Nail Colour.
I love each and every one of these products almost as much as the Eye Quads! They all apply seamlessly and are great shades for the upcoming summer season.
But, like I said, I’m always partial to eye shadow. The combination of these Eye Quad matte shades and shimmering shadows is really what makes for the perfect combination to go from a day to night look in a snap. And that’s exactly what I need when those long work days quickly turn into nights out on the town!
