Get gorgeous pearly eyes with maybelline Diamond Glow eyeshadow quad- Review & swatches

Hi ladies,
Hope you are enjoying the weekend!!
Sorry for this late post...was quite busy yesterday with guests n all but anyways now finally I'm here with a beautiful eyeshadow quad with which most of you must already be familiar. So here what i Have is this Maybelline Diamond Glow eyeshadow quad in 04 Ocean Blue.

Maybelline Diamond Glow eyeshadow quad- Ocean Blue

An eyeshadow quad which contains 4 different shades (all shimmery)- 3 different blues and a silver highlighter along with an applicator.

What it claims:
Creamy soft eye shadows with such rich pigments it holds up to 60% more glitter to make your eyes dazzle like diamonds.

Rs 375


From R-L they are:
A dark blue shade with several multicolored glitters and looks adorable on the eyes. Can be worn in nigh time parties & functions as it beautifully decorates the eyes like a jewel!!! Not very pigmented but satisfactory.

Next comes a light blue shade with silver shimmers. It has subtle shimmers which can be worn even in daytime as it'll look very decent & no less beautiful. Very pigmented.

The second last one is an icy silverish blue shade with light shimmers. Quite pigmented!

And finally the last one is a silver highlighter, shimmery in nature. Can be used on the brow bone to give a shimmery effect. Not much pigmented and a bit chalky in nature.

In the mirror of my own experience
When these quads were launched in India I was very eager to try at least one of them. First I though of trying the Copper one but as I already had many browns & coppers in my collection so I took this one as I loved all the shades in this. It contains all the shades of blue that one would require to do a beautiful EOTD. I had not expected the shades to be this pigmented as all the other maybelline quads & duos that I've tried have very less pigmented shades. But as you can see that they have raised the price of this quad so there had to be some quality.

Good Points

Gorgeous shimmery blue shades which are quite pigmented.
At the back beginners can take help from the instructions given.
The applicator is very beautiful and quite helpful as well.
Love the packaging!!!! The cuts on the lid give a diamond glow to this quad.
The silver shade looks great on the brow bone. It can also be used for giving shimmers to matte shades.
It is a very beautiful & handy quad.
The product is worth the price. I'm happy to see so much improvement in Maybelline's eyeshadows :D
I swipe each

Bad Points
I wish there was a mirror provided in this quad which would have made it perfect.
A single quad can only give shape to one sort of look and not multicolored....for example this one is for blue, Lilac for purple, Pink Wine for only pink eye makeup.
Very few shades are available in India :(

Overall it's an amazing product, very affordable as well!! I would surely recommend it to others.


So girls what do you think about this quad? Have you tried any? Which one is your fave?? Will soon post a makeup look using this palette!!!
