I’ve got 4 of the Blend The Rules Eyeshadow Quads – 03 ESCAPADE, 09 DIAMONDS, 12 COMPLICATED and 16 ROAR.
The SUGAR BLEND THE RULES EYESHADOW QUADS come in a sleek and compact palette packaging. And you guys know the SUGAR theme right? Not to forget that. It is very sturdy and makes it easy to carry. The quads have 4 eyeshadow shades and also included is the dual ended sponge applicator. The name of the quad is mentioned on the top of the quad itself, and also on the back of the slide-on outer packaging. These quads do not come with any mirror inside, whereas the bigger palettes have the mirror included. The quads have a magnetic enclosure, which makes it tight and secure while storing and carrying around. On the whole, the packaging is very handy and light weight, and very travel-friendly too.
Quad 03 – ESCAPADE is a all matte quad with stunning shades. This is my favorite quad out of all. With a nude, mauvey pink, coral peach and a dark plum shade, this palette is perfect for the day – night matte look. Matte lovers will absolutely love this quad.
Quad 09 – DIAMONDS is a mix of 2 mattes and 2 shimmery shades. With brown, a bright electric blue, a silver-based purple and emerald toned black shades, this quad is perfect for the midnight party look. For someone who’d love to try bright and bold colors, this is your quad.
Quad 12 – COMPLICATED is a again a mix of 2 mattes and 2 shimmer shades. With matte coral peach, dark plum, copper gold and deep violet shimmers, this quad is perfect to create that sunset golden smokey look.
Quad 16 – ROAR is a basic everyday kind of quad with a combination of daily wearable mattes and shimmer shades. With a nude, coral peach, gold and deep bronze shades, this quad is going to be everyone’s favorite and most used. Its just perfect for those subtle office/college looks and the festival bling looks.
Easy Shade Guide –
- The lightest colour usually works well as a brow bone highlighter.
- The second lightest colour usually looks good on the lid and creates a base to apply the shade of your choice, matte or shimmer.
- The second darkest colour usually works best on the crease.
- The darkest colour usually works best in the outer corner.
Let’s talk about how do they perform. These eyeshadows are extremely pigmented. They have a very soft and smooth texture. Not at all chalky nor they don’t have any white cast or any white base. These are pure pigments. They don’t have any fallouts either. This is all we need in any eyeshadow or in any palette. The matte shades from the quads are to die for, such gorgeous shades. And the shimmers are just bling on, they glide on like butter I tell you. Single swipe of the shimmers give a complete opaque finish. The shimmers don’t even need any primer base for application, they have such great color pay-off. But the mattes need primer underneath for that intense pigment. The mattes really need to be packed on or layered on to get that intense color payoff.
The finger swatches, the hand swatches and the brush application all come out different. Fingers pick up extreme color, whereas when you swatch the same on the hand the intensity lessens, and with using brushes the pigment is not that great and we need to pack it on. For the shimmer shades, I’d totally suggest to apply with fingers as it gives the best results.
Swatches of the Quads in the order – 03 Escapade, 09 Diamonds, 12 Complicated and 16 Roar :
I swirled my fingers 2-3 times through each shade and this is how extremely pigmented these shadows are –
Here’s from what I observed – If you buy the bigger 2 palettes, you are just sorted with all the 18 quads. Yes! the quads are nothing but the baby palettes of the mother palette. Basically, it is just the 20 eyeshadows from the bigger palettes that are put in different quads. Out of the 4 quads I have, three of them have 1-2 common shades which is actually kind of disappointing to me
I used the quad 03 ESCAPADE to create this look –
Played with the bright blue shade from the quad 09 DIAMONDS. I absolutely love this electric blue shade. And to go bold with such shades ain’t a sin girl!
Used the quad 12 COMPLICATED here. Haven’t got to try the shimmers yet. I’d definitely do more looks using the shimmer shades and post on my Instagram page, don’t forget to FollowMe there.
PRO’S OF SUGAR BLEND THE RULES EYESHADOW QUADS –
- Sleek and Travel-friendly packaging
- Magnetic enclosure for secure store
- Silky soft and smooth matte shadows
- Buttery smooth shimmer shadows
- Extreme color pay-off.
- Shimmers don’t need any primer for application.
CON’S OF SUGAR BLEND THE RULES EYESHADOW QUADS –
- No mirror included in the quads.
- Repeated shades.
- I really feel the quantity is less for the price we pay. And also I don’t get the concept of placing the pans that far from each other. I wish they were little close enough and the pan size be a bit big.
Overall, I’m totally impressed with the SUGAR BLEND THE RULES EYESHADOW QUADS. With such great pigmentation and a ton of choices to choose from, these are by far the best shadows in the Indian market now. I’d recommend (and personally pick) an all matte quad and all shimmer quad for all kind of subtle and everyday looks. If you’re someone who likes to play with bright and bold shades, then I’d recommend 06, 09 and 10 quads for deep and night time looks. I really appreciate Sugar for this great innitiative in bringing such great eyeshadows and I’m sure we’ll have more coming from the house.
