I’m not always adventurous when it comes to eye shadow, but recently I wanted to go for something more dramatic. I recently received the Doucce Eye Shadow Quad in #16: the Allure Special Edition. This quad can be purchased from their website for $35, which is very expensive for an eye shadow quad.
First, the pigmentation was really great. They are vivid and dramatic. The picture doesn’t do them justice as they all have some shimmer to them. I was really pleased with the full effect of these shadows, but I was disappointed in their texture. This is a very dry powder that is much harder to blend that Urban Decay shadows. For $35, I expect a better quality shadow. I will admit that it lasted all day and still looked great even after 10 hours of wear, but it just shouldn’t have been so hard to get my desired look. Overall, I liked this quad and I’ll definitely keep using it, but I would only recommend it to people who don’t mind blending a lot. There are definitely better quality shadows for better prices elsewhere.
Have you ever used this brand? Let me know in the comment section!
