Ooops. Have to revise that… I WAS a Beauty United Blogger. Since the move to Korea, it isn’t like I could still be :P

I got the new quad back at the end of 2014. I know…as per the usual, the reviews are churned out late. But, luckily you can still snag them! They are available at Well.ca for $10CAN. The stock picture on the Well.ca website is really…inaccurate. A quick Google search will show you better colours, if mine don’t satisfy you :)
So, I don’t have a lot of CoverGirl shadows in my collection.
Well, I guess I never had a lot of great experiences with them. I had a few with the old blue packaging, but they were always too dry and stiff to really work with. I think I ended up breaking on up to use in clear polish.
In any case, I wasn’t expecting much from this new Quad that CoverGirl released. But just looking through the cover, I wished that it would go well…
and lucky for me, it did.
First off, though you can use the sponge applicator it comes with (which isn’t crappy like built in applicators tend to be), I like using my finger tips. This might not be an option for you, if you have larger fingers, or long nails. I know I can only use my ring finger, as it is flesher than the others.
Now, what I like about this, is the shimmer. Oh dear goodness…THE SHIMMER! I actually used #1 as a highlighter for my cheeks for the holiday season. It gave enough of a shine, without being too crazy. I found it similar to some of the other liquid ones that I had. #2 is also a nice somewhat taupe-y shadow. Again with the shimmer, it gives a nice all over colour for the lazy days. Depending on your brow colour, you might get away using #3 for the brows (I used to use Annabelle’s So Foxy, and eyeshadow, for my brows). #4 gave me the most trouble, as it was falling out all over the place. So using a bonder, and a primer, is a necessity for this one. You might want to use tape to pick up any strays as well.
If you aren’t a fan of shimmer, you may want to skip out on this one. But if you do like it…it is really something you want to check out. You can use the sponge applicator it comes with (which isn’t the usual flimsy sponge applicator we get from drug store products). I actually just like to use my finger pads, as I get to rub the rest of the shimmer wherever I want…Yes…I’m weird.
