Review: GloMinerals – Mini Eye Shadow Quad Cleo

Hello my Beauties,

it’s finally weekend again. I bet we all need some serious relaxation…

I had the pleasure of testing the Mini Eye Shadow Quad in Cleo by GloMinerals,
that was in my Pink Box back in december 2012.
As you see, i really took 3 month to play with the mini palette, to really give you my opinion on it.
And let me tell you already – i’m loving it.

About Mini Eye Shadow Quad in Cleo:
As you know i have rather oily eyelids, so i’m usually very sceptical, when it comes to new eyeshadow and their texture.
Sometime it can be a real challenge to find the right type of shadows, that won’t crease on my eyes after an hour.
When i tried this quad for the first time, i noticed how smooth the application was and how little product i needed to get the true color on my lid. I really like the fact, that they go on quite opaque, but don’t make any problems when it comes to blending.

This quad contains the colors: sand, desert rose, kohl and indigo.
There are 3.36g/0.132oz of the product and the quad retail for $20.00 on the official site.
The texture is very silky and smooth. Three of the four colors have a nice shimmer and the remaining one is matte, which is really nice in my opinion to also have a matte shadow in a quad (or palette), in case you want to create a light wearable eye look.
I love how dusty & smoky, but still very “appropriate for daytime” my eyes look when i’m only wearing “desert rose” & “kohl” together.
GloMinerals Cleo Mini Eye Shadow Quad desert rose kohl sand indigoI have to point out a remarkable thing: after 8 hours wearing the shadows, my eyes doesn’t obviously look the freshest, but i don’t see any creasing and that’s the biggest surprise to me, since i’m used to see it by the end of the day. Of course, i would always recommend using a good eye primer, which always helps to keep your shadows in place, but with GloMinerals you will simply need a tiny bit of the primer and you are good to go.

It so happened, that i did a not intended test 2 days ago. I felt asleep with my makeup on, which i usually don’t. Well, i was really sick and tired. Can you imagine my surprise, when i looked in the mirror 5 hours later and noticed how bad my mascara looked (literally all over my face), but the eye shadow was like 5 minutes after application?! I was very impressed.

The only thing i probably would add, is a little mirror inside the quad and a little brush, to be able to use it on the go. Because for me personally it would be a great little quad to take on a short trip.

Have you heard of this quad or the brand before? What’s your experience? 
Please share your thoughts with me. 

Until next time – stay beautiful.
