Review & Swatchfest: Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad in Timeless

Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad in Timeless
 I'm assuming Youngblood's EyeshadowQuad in Timeless got its' name from the four light, neutral shades it contains. It's the perfect quad to create a staple, everyday natural eye for any age with colors that flatter anyone. The four shades, Doe, Coco, Haze, and Desert , are formulated to apply like silk and stay for hours. Doe is a cream shade with a satin finish and functions well as an all over lid shade, but really shines as an inner corner and brow bone highlight. Coco is a matte light camel shade that works well to gently define the crease and can even be used to contour the sides of the nose and cheek bones. Haze is a light taupe that is similar to Coco but with more grey. This, again, is a great shade for gently defining the crease, but can also be used to add some depth to the outer corner. Unlike the other shade, however, using this to contour your face can lead to muddied makeup. Lastly, Desert is shimmery light camel – slightly lighter than Coco - and the only shimmery shade in the palette. This is a good all purpose shade that can be worn as an all over wash of color on the lid or as an amped up highlighter when Doe just isn't enough. Another great thing about these shadows is that they can be used both dry and wet. Using them wet won't turn this into a smoky palette by any means, but it will deepen them slightly and help them stay on all day.

Youngblood Eyeshadow Quads have some of my favorite packaging among the smaller shadow palettes out there. With a sleek, matte black exterior with a magnetic closure, it stays shut while traveling but is easy to open and is easily cleaned – unlike the rubberized NARS compacts. It also has nice, big mirror that's come in handy the few times I've use these shadows.  

If you are someone who wants a palette that yields a classic, neutral look for everyday use, this is absolutely the palette for you. With both matte and shimmery shade, it has some variety. And, because each shadow can be used wet (and become a deeper shade when done so), it's like getting 8 shadows in one palette. If you are interested in the quality of shadows, but not necessarily the colors, Youngblood makes quite a few quads with shades to flatter most!
