An Eye Shadow Quad in four shades: Flawless Figure, Brains & Brawn, All Woman and Black Magique. The highly pigmented powder formula applies evenly, blends and builds beautifully.
This review is for the All Woman eye shadow quad that comes with MAC’s upcoming Strength Collection. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:
- Flawless Figure: Pale warm shimmering white (Veluxe Pearl)
- Brains & Brawn: Mid-tone taupe (Matte)
- All Woman: Greenish dark grey (Satin)
- Black Magique: Deep dark black with warm tones (Velvet)
This quad is packaged in a standard MAC container–a plastic 2-by-2 palette with a see-through, flip-up, magnetized lid. The outer box packaging has a retro, throw-back design.
Flawless Figure is a frosty white color with strong pigmentation.
Brains & Brawn is a medium, cool-toned taupe with a matte finish.
All Woman is a cool-toned, silvery grey with a very subtly shimmery finish.
Black Magique is a deep black with silver micro-shimmers.
The formula for all four (4) of these shades has just enough softness to apply smoothly and evenly. The creamy formula paired with the natural colors and matte finish makes for an excellent quad for those who want a cool-toned, neutral look.
Brains & Brawn needs an extra layer to build up the finish, but other than that, these shades are lovely.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
All of the shadows have slighting creamy formulations that transfer onto and blend into the skin without too much fuss.
Single shadows are (now) $15.00 each, so for four colors, $40.00 is a good deal, though this is $2.00 increase in the price of quads from MAC.
