How is everyone doing tonight? Typing that made me feel like I was opening a concert, when really I’m blogging and watching Bob’s Burgers with my cat, Carl.
If you have been with my for a bit, then you’ll remember that about a year ago I got the KVD quad in “Sage” and did some posts on it. Thanks to them being on sale, I finally got more! They are currently $15, On the KVD site, but I got mine at TJMAXX for $9.99. People are finding them at TJMAXX everywhere!
Tonight, we are going to focus on the “Plum” quad, but I am sure y’all already gathered that for yourselves!
Let’s start with the packaging. Kat knows packaging. I keep all the product boxes and I hate storing the products away. The packaging is insanely sturdy, very aesthetically pleasing, and includes a great mirror. It is a little bulky, but who is seriously putting these quads out of site!? I know I am not.
The quad includes a base, definer, contour, and highlight shade. I REALLY like the base shade. It’s a really nice transition shade for other looks.
I did want to mention that the shadows are awfully powdery. I didn’t find this an issue though, concerning fallout, as long as I remembered to tap my brush off- which is essentially a habit.
I also found that the plum shade was a little patchy and a bit hard to blend.
But, over all the shades are Incredibly pigmented, and I was pretty happy with how my look turned out after working with them for a bit!
Keep in mind I’m not a pro, just an enthusiast!
- I used the “base” shade as my transition/blending shade.
- I deepened my crease with the “contour” shade.
- I made my crease and outer corner even deeper with the “define” shade.
- I then took the ” highlight” shade on my lid. My eyes are slightly hooded, so I am still trying to really figure out how to work with them the best…
- For my lower lash line I smudged a plum liner with the “definer” shade, then blended it out with the “contour” shade, then that with the “base”, then finished that off with a skin toned powder to really balance everything out.
My inner corner high light is “Valley Girl” by ColourPop, my liner is the KVD Ink liner in “Trooper” and I am still using the BWC mascara!
Will I pick up more of these quads while they are in the $15-$10 range? Hell yeah! I love KVD! This quad may have been a little difficult to work with, but I am in love with the outcome! 🍐🍐🍐🍐🍐 out of 5 pears, I can’t find a plum emoji. (At least at the price they are now, not the original…which still isn’t too bad considering it’s KVD.)
That’s it guys! Which KVD quad is your favorite? Should I get the “Fawn” set…it has a limited edition quad? Comment below!
