My fellow eye shadow junkies — if you obsess over shades like taupe, I’m talking to YOU! — once you’ve taken a whirl with one of Sonia Kashuk’s new Monochrome Eye Quads, you may be tempted to call it your new BFF.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself sending it texts while you shop for shoes (“I can’t tell if these make me look short…”), or offering to braid its hair, or inviting it over one Friday night to watch BRAVO, drink champagne and eat cake.
Each of the four new spring quads (Textured Rose, Textured Mauve, Textured Coca, and Textured Taupe) comes with four variations on a different shade, and you can find them now at Target for less than the cost of lunch at a fancy food truck.
Textured Taupe has totes been my jam as of late…
Inside the sleek black matte package lives 1) a matte taupe, 2) a matte taupe with tiny flecks of golden glitter, 3) a pearly golden taupe and 4) a shiny golden taupe with big o’ pieces of glitter.
I really dig this quad, and not based solely on my love for taupe.
Whenever I need a lift, I pat one or two shades on my lids to brighten my eyes, and because the shades are so closely related, they only take a few swipes to blend. I just have to remember to dust off any excess from my brush first to avoid any fallout.
You’d think that a quad with four of the same shades might be boring, but among the four finishes, I always seem to find a fresh new combo to keep it spicy.
And when I wet my brush head first, I can crank up the shimmer on the three non-matte shades, so in a way, it’s like getting day and night shadows in a single quad. LOVE that!
PRICE: $13.69 each
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Target stores and target.com
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (beware of fallout with these)
Wait — what’s that? It’s only Thursday?
Okay, well, happy thursday…
How was your night? Mine was pretty laid back. After an easy jog on the treadmill, I watched the latest eps of New Girl and The Mindy Project (love this show!), and then tried to stay up to watch Southland but ended up passing out.
I’ve got a hair appointment later today, and I’m counting down the seconds! Been cranky about my roots since early March, so it’s about time.
Have a good one today.
