NUANCE Eyeshadow Quads

Hey everyone!

I know I have not been doing a product review for a looonngg time! But hey! now it is the time! :)

Alright, today's product review is going to be products from Salma Hayek cosmetic line called NUANCE. Briefly about the brand: it is exclusively sold at CVS. Not only it has cosmetics, but also it has skincare, haircare, and body collection products.

I only bought the two eyeshadow quads it has which are Smokey and Neutral.

Price: $8.49 (this is an online price, my local CVS sold it for $9-$10), which are fairly cheap because you get four different colors of eyeshadows and one mini smudger brush.

Packaging: LOVE the packaging! It is made of plastics, but yet is very unique and somewhat elegant. It looks like a tear drop, then when you open it, you can see the four eyeshadows and the brush!

Did you guys see what I meant now? How cute is that!

Pigmentation: I love these colors, especially the Smokey one. Usually when cosmetic companies produce a smokey eyeshadow palette, they tend to produce same colors over and over again, such as grey, black, and dark brown. However, NUANCE Smokey eyeshadow quad contains a shimmery teal color (great for lid color), a dark forest green (great for crease color), a matte grey (for blending color), and a nude color (for highlight). About the pigmentation, the colors are not that vibrant - you need to layer the colors, but it is smooth and easy to blend out. This quad is also perfect for a night out, unless you want to rock teal smokey eyes in the day, which is totally fine! sometimes I do too :) I have done a tutorial using this quad, you can click here to see it.

The other quad, which is Neutral, it is a great colors for everyday fall look. It has a shimmery champaign, soft brown, shimmery gold, and reddish brown. These colors are all appropriate for lid, crease, or highlight color, you can create so many looks from this quad. From its pigmentation, I feel like the colors are more pop up than the smokey ones. Most colors are in satin texture, with a little bit of shimmer. Therefore, when you apply it, it goes on so smoothly.

Place: CVS stores only. If you do not have CVS in your city, you can buy it online. Click here for Smokey quad, and click here for Neutral quad.

So what do you guys think about these quads? Will you guys try it out? Let me know! :)

Disclaimer: Either NUANCE or CVS does not pay me at all to write this review. These products were purchased by my own.

Love y'all,
