Today i’ll be telling you about all five quad eyeshadows and the new mascara I am sure by now you have all seen my five days of Yardley London posts on my Instagram page where I show you how each quad eyeshadow looks on. If you haven’t seen it yet go have a look here and also on our Instagram blog page here ☺.
Yardley London Stayfast Quad Eyeshadows
The Yardley London Eyeshadow Quads come in a variety of shades from soft nudes, plums and burnt oranges.
The Yardley London Stayfast Eyeshadow Quad range is available in five different colours and finishes: Foxtail Lily, Dynasty, Revel, Wanderlust and Satin Taupe.
All five quad eyeshadows contain stunning pigmented colours which do not have any fall out when applying them on. Three of the quad eyeshadows contain more natural neutral everyday colours while the other two quad eyeshadows offer more deeper darker vibrant colours perfect for a night out.
The Yardley London Quad Eyeshadows are packaged in a contemporary round, clear and fresh compact to showcase four beautiful classic shades in each collection. The new stayfast range offers a higher percentage of pearls, which translate into incredible colour payoff on the skin, finished with a creamy silky feel.
Satin Taupe: taupe is basically dark brown greyish/green colour. I will describe each colour starting from the top left to right.
The first colour is a shimmery beige colour which is perfect for highlighting the inner corner of the eyes and brow bone. The second colour is a light brown with slight grey undertones, it has a matte finish and is perfect to use as a base colour on the lids. The bottom left is a dark brown matte colour which is perfect to smoke the eyes by applying to the outer corner of the eyes, the crease and along the lower lashline. The last colour is a warm brown with slight green shimmery undertones which is perfect for the lids or to create a smokey eye.
Foxtail Lily: this quad eyeshadow contains peachy beige tones which is perfect for everyday use.
The first colour is a shimmery peach almost beige which can be used as a base colour on the lids and also to highlight the inner corner of the eyes and brow bone. The second colour is a darker shimmery peach colour, this is really a beautiful shade and can be used on the lids or also to highlight the inner corner of the eyes. The bottom left colour is a shimmery taupe colour (brown/greyish) which is perfect to use as a transition colour on the crease or to create a natural smokey eye. The last colour is a dark matte brown which can be used to create a perfect smokey eye.
Wanderlust: this quad eyeshadow contains beautiful warm brown and golden tones.
The first colour on the left is a shimmery light beige which can be used on the lids or to highlight the inner corner of the eyes and the brow bone. The second colour is a beautiful shimmery gold which is also perfect on the lids and to highlight. The bottom left colour is a light matte brown which makes for the perfect base colour on the lids. The last colour is a dark bronze brown this shade is perfect to create a smokey eye by applying it to the outer corner of the eyes, the crease and along the lower lash line.
Revel: this quad contains grey and plum shades, this is one of the darker intense quads which is perfect to use on a night out.
The first colour on the left is a grey with shimmery pink undertones, this is an absolutely stunning shade on its own! The pink shimmer changes under different light from pink to purple. I would use this shade on its own on my lids or to highlight the inner corner of the eyes, brow bone and even my face. The second shade on the right is a light matte brown which is perfect to use as a base on the lids. The lower left colour is a shimmery steel grey it is a very intense dark steel grey and is perfect to create an intense bold smokey eye by applying it to the outer corner of the eyes, crease and along the lower lash line. The last color is a shimmery plum this is such a gorgeous shade and so perfect to create a plum smokey eye or to be used as a transition colour on the crease with the steel grey shade over.
Dynasty: this is my favourite quad (I love all five quads but this one I love the most☺). This quad eyeshadow contains the most beautiful autumn shades that reminds me of the vibrant colours of the leaves which fall in autumn. This is the second deeper more intense quad the colours really stand out from the rest as it contains stunning golden orange tones. This quad is perfect to use for a night out but I would also use it during the day for a beautiful eye catching look.
Starting from the top left the first shade is gold almost orange shimmery colour which is perfect to use on the lids and to also create a halo look by applying it to the centre of the lid and the center of the lower lashline. The second colour is a light shimmery bronze shade, this shade is very light and not as pigmented as the others making it perfect to use as a base colour. The bottom left colour is a shimmery burnt orange, burnt orange is the perfect colour for autumn/winter. This shade stands out from all four colours it is perfect to use on the lids, when creating a halo look or to even create a smokey eye. The last colour is a dark brown shade with tiny gold glitter, it is such a stunning deep intense brown shade which can be used to create the perfect smokey eye.
All the colours in each pan work well together they can be used together or on their own. The eyeshadows apply on smoothly, they are soft in texture, blend well, all colors are pigmented and the colour is definitely buildable for a more intense look. These are really the perfect autumn/winter shades and the eyeshadows feel very comfortable on the eyes.
I found that there is no need to apply an eyeshadow primer as the eyeshadows are all long-lasting, there is no creasing and no fading throughout the the day. They are really perfect for on the go, offering quick and easy application in just one pan as all the colors you need to create the perfect look are conveniently in one pan.
Each quad can be used on their own or can be mixed with colours from the other quads they are so versatile offering an endless amount of looks from nude everyday looks to more bolder looks for a night out.
The quad eyeshadows are perfect for ladies who are just starting with their eyeshadow collection or starting to use eyeshadows as one pan offers all the colors that you would need to create a look or even multiple looks. It is also perfect for ladies who are on the go as you can just pop the quad into your bag and don’t have to carry a huge eyeshadow palette with you.
These Yardley London Quad Eyeshadows have quickly become my favourite they are such great quality and the shades are stunning. I love that each pan contains equal amounts of the four shades and that the pans are big and offer more product.
The Yardley London Stayfast Quad Eyeshadows retail for R129.95.
Yardley London Multi Effect Mascara
The Multi Effect mascara offers buildable volume, length and definition which I found to be true. Not only did I get all of the above mentioned benefits from using the mascara but I also got nicely separated lashes without any clumping.
The extreme black and electric green packaging of the new mascara is eye catching. The mascara has a long medium sized wand which is thicker towards the end to get nice fluffy flared outer lashes. The formula is perfect it is not too thick and not watery, it has the perfect consistency.
This has become my favourite everyday mascara I feel that it really opens up my eyes, you can see the difference below, on the left I applied the new Yardley London Multi Effect Mascara and on the right I have nothing on my lashes.
Yardley London Multi Effect Mascara retails for R79.95 for a 8ml tube.
All Yardley London products are available at selected Clicks, Dis-Chem, Edgars, Foschini and leading pharmacies nationwide.
I have become a huge fan of Yardley London products as they are of such great quality and offer long-lasting flawless looks.
