Pixi Shade Quartette Review:
I was really impressed with shadow quad! This was my first try with Pixi shadows and I loved the texture; they're silky smooth, soft, apply beautifully and blend like a dream. They're also richly pigmented.

The quad I have, Shades Of Taupe, has four beautifully natural shades. The two darker shades are my favorite, but I will use them all. You could easily create a brown smokey eye for night time, or sultry eye for evening, and a nude eye for day.

I would highly recommend checking out these shadow quads; they're worth every penny!
