physician's formula eyeshadow quad: canyon classics

the best feeling in the world is when u find something inexpensive yet it works for you!  during my recent visit to my local drug store, i've come across the physician's formula eyeshadow quad in canyon classics~ The packaging may look simple and deceiving, but the product inside is actually pretty good quality and man is it versatile.  All the colors inside are a matte finish and the colors are very neutral and perfect for an everyday neutral look :)
This quad has a 2 different shades of medium brown, (they may look similar in this pic, but are actually pretty different) a dark taupe greyish color and a beige off white color.  I will admit that this isn't the most exciting eyeshadow quad in the world, but it is just perfect for achieving the barely there subtle make up look.  But u can also easily create a more dramatic smokey eye look by simply adding pops of other colors to the lid. i especially like adding a cool tone purple, but anything with a cool undertone will work really well with these colors.  I also use the dark taupe color to fill in my brows and the whitish color is just perfect for highlighting the cheekbone and brow bone.  The lighter shades of brown can also be used to blend out the harsh edges and also for contouring ur face!! told u it was versatile! and guess what, the size is small enough to make it perfect for traveling.  just an overall staple for ur make up bag anywhere u go (。・ω・。)ノ♡
I did a swatch for you guys outdoors because the yellowish lighting i had inside my house just wasn't doing the eyeshadows justice. (they looked like bruises on my hand ಥ_ಥ)  So as u can see, they are quite pigmented and are definitely smooth and easy to apply.  Not much fall out and blends oh so beautifully.  I cannot think of any negative things to say about this quad, well except maybe the packaging could look a little fancier? haha~ but for around 8 CAD bucks , i'm not complaining.

what are the staples in ur make up bag? :D

  7. ohhh physician's formula is pretty good! they have REALLY good blushes and bronzers! this palette seems nice... since it's matte you can use it for contouring too! although I like eyeshadows with a tiny bit of shimmer since it blends more easily :D and your banner is so damn cute! very you and very kelvin at the same time haha ^^ AND GOD I WANT FISH AND CHIPS FROM STEVESTON!!!
