Physicians Formula Matte Collection Quad Eyeshadow in Canyon Classics - Review & Swatches

Personally, I don't tend to collect matte eyeshadows.. like ever. I like to have a few of the neutral necessities of the mattes and that is about it. But lately, I have been interested to find a good matte palette that pretty much had everything I would need. So when I stumbled upon this eyeshadow quad from Physicians Formula, I got pretty excited!

Now I was initially thinking of considering the Urban Decay Naked Basics but then I thought I wont be using just the matte eyeshadow for a full on eye look so I couldn't justify paying that much money for getting only half of the eye look I want. I only use a cream matte shadow for brow highlight, brown for blending the crease and sometimes black for setting my my eyeliner but other than that I use shimmer eyeshadow for the rest of the look, so you get what I mean when I say I would use it for half of the eye look I am going for. 

This matte eyeshadow quad comes in a grey/silver durable plastic packaging which I think comes very handy and it is travel friendly and doesn't take a whole lot of space. The overall packaging look is very simple and nothing flashy or overly exciting but it does not mean the product quality is bad. heh

Inside, this quad has a small thin mirror in the top and a sponge applicator which I just throw out because I prefer actual eye makeup brushes. haha

The eyeshadows are all matte as the name of it already tells. There is a cream/ white shade. Two brown shades which one has a warm undertone and the other has a cool undertone to it. Finally there is a dark grey eyeshadow as well.

The quality is very creamy and very pigmented. A little bit of this stuff goes a very long way and they blend easily as well. 

The price ranges between $7 - $11 depending on the store you get it from.

Overall, I think this is a very good matte eyeshadow quad to have, so if you are looking for a good matte eyeshadow similar to these shades, you might want to give this a try!

What are your thoughts on this eyeshadow quad? What are your favourite matte palettes?

Photos of the Month : January 2014

Hello everyone!

I hope you all have had a great month of January and a good start to the month of February. I really enjoyed sharing some of "nature" pictures of mine during 2013 through these blog posts so I decided to keep doing them since it is so much fun for me and it is a little different than my usual beauty posts. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do! :)

Winter is still happening here in Toronto! yes, it's all white everywhere STILL!! Don't get me wrong, I love snow and how beautiful it is, but sometimes you just get tired of how cold it is outside!! Well, it is Toronto and there is nothing I can do about that. In my opinion, Toronto is so UNPREDICTABLE!! One year we have the most pleasant winter ever and the next year it is all warnings of how being outside for 5 minutes the skin is going to freeze.

But honestly, some days can be a bit of a disaster. Let me explain to you so you wont think I'm crazy. So it snows A LOT and then nothing happens for a few days just super cold weather and lots of wind then one day the temperature goes high and it is so pleasant it feels like spring, well not really but you get what I mean. So the snow starts to melt, obviously, and then at night the temperature drops again and all that melted snow is now ICE!! So imagine walking on solid ice. That's how crazy it can get here. I'm sure it is a whole lot worse in other places but Toronto, come on... go a little easy on us would you??

Any ways, I really do try to look at the positive side of things which can be REALLY hard at times. Well, at a lot of times.. haha

I don't have a picture of those days that I had to walk on ice because I had to be careful not to fall, so I didn't really remember to bring out my cellphone and take a picture. Oops, my bad, forgive me!! :D

My "photos of the month" posts wont be complete unless I include some sort of delicious looking picture of food. So, this was my way of making easy, fast, home made pizza!

I hope for you all to have an amazing month of February. Stay safe, warm and happy lovelies.

Love, Dina.
