Ellana Week: Eyebrow/Eyeshadow Quad in Intense, Beloved, Hush, Wish

5:47 PM


I'm a sucker for eyeshadow, so it comes as no surprise that this is one of my favorites from Ellana. The aptly-named Combo Eyebrow/Eyeshadow Quad has neutral shadows that double as brow powder.

These are very pigmented and silky, almost like a cream shadow. They swatch like a dream. Applied it with fingers it is almost opaque! Use of a brush yields a more subtle effect. Being pressed mineral makeup it is a bit powdery, but using fingers minimizes the mess. I want to get the other two quads, a spring palette with pinks and golds and a dual-purpose liner/shadow quad with purples and blues. All my favorite colors!




  • Intense - matte taupe brown, great for the outer V and as brow powder
  • Beloved -  matte light tan, contour shade
  • Wish - satin copper
  • Hush - matte beige that I use as a lid wash and brow bone highlighter

Look that color pay-off! These shades were chosen to contour the eye, give it a bit of definition; while the inclusion of the copper Wish gives a a bit of color. All the shadows look matte in the pan but Wish has a subtle satin sheen that is just gorgeous. So lovely.


Hush on the lid, Wish on the crease, Intense on the outer V and brows. Doesn't it look so dreamy? As a brow powder the look is very soft and you have to build it up. This wouldn't be my first choice for a that purpose, but as a shadow quad? Yes please!



I love a natural eye! I would've gotten this palette based on Wish alone.


An even more natural look with Hush on the lid, Beloved on the crease, and a tiny bit of Intense on the outer V. This was taken at night, 12 hours after application, hence the haggard look. But see, the shadows have barely faded! Granted I did use them with Urban Decay Primer Potion, but the kaolin clay in these makes them extra long-wearing.



The Wrap

Pros

Creamy, pigmented shadows
Great choice of shades for a natural eye
Great price!

Cons

A bit powdery so just tap your brush before touching it to your lids, or simply use your fingers!
