The Body Shop : Down to Earth Quad {Smokey Grey Version)

I love The Body shop products and some of my favourite's have been from the makeup range. I had my first makeup consultation there when I was younger (many moon's ago). So i am very excited and grateful too The Body Shop for allowing me to trial a new eyeshadow palette.

Smokey Grey Quad {Also available Gold, Plum, Brown, Black)
Discover a wide range of neutral shades to highlight the natural beauty of all skin tones & eye colours.
~ The new quads each have a built in mirror, and the individual shades all click in and out of the palette casing, so you can switch shades between palettes and quads. (Please note that the palette is prefilled, so shades can’t be swapped prior to purchase.)
~ The nature powered formula comes in 8 shades with x3 different finishes: true mattes, iridescent shimmers and eye-catching sparkles.
~ All the shades can be used dry for easy blending, or wet for more intense, vibrant colour. This can help to create defined lines and strokes.
Palette & Shadow's
The palette is a sleek and well set out with 4 cohesive shadows that blend well together. Soft and buttery in texture these eyeshadows need a good primer, so they last longer.

Overall view
I attempted the first two looks on the box card and found that the pink shade on the first look to be a very pale, much lighter colour then appearing within the pan. This first look is a very clean look for daily wear, using the darkest shadow used for an eyeliner. The second look I achieved by using the colours mentioned and some glitter pigment on the lid. I used a glitter to emphasise the grey shades more. These suggested look's are a really handy tool, as they show what can be achieved with that set of colours and plus where to place and blend each shade. 
I absolutely love the texture of the shadows with there creamy, buttery feeling. They are easy to apply and are pigmented when swatched. I found it very versitile with the new push out palette, I can swap and change out colour's as I wish. It made me realise that I only require four shades to complete my daily look. I would love to try the other quads available and see how the colour's compare and look's that can be achieved. Im very impressed with the "Grey" quad and how the shadow's have performed. They blend well and have great pigmentation also. 

Can be found at any "Body shop" branch or online.
