REVIEW: Love & Beauty by Forever 21 Eyeshadow Quad

Quality

IMO, the quality was not that great. I found it a bit chalky and sheer. With one swipe whilst doing the swatches for this post, I noticed that it was not opaque and needed a few times to build the color and even so, the color payoff was just so-so. I have to say I am quite disappointed with the product itself. I’ve heard so much about the product, however I did not experience the same. Let’s just say I’ve had come across eyeshadows that provide opaque color payoff and hence the high expectations for eyeshadows.  But hey, don’t let my opinion stop you from trying/ purchasing it.

Product & Packaging

The quad I have consists of four neutral colors; 1 matte and 3 shimmery colors. Contains 4.48 grams/ 0.158 US FL OZ. It is cruelty free and not tested on animals. The color selection of the other quads are mainly neutral colors (light to dark browns and black), nothing funky. I own too many neutral/ brown color eyeshadows so I picked one quad to tryout otherwise I would have purchased everything to add to my collection of brown shadows.  I would love to see some vibrant color quads. The product is an OK product to take with you when you go traveling due to its compact packaging.

The quad came with this applicator that I now use it to apply glitter glue to pack on those glitters. It works really well! 

The product had a  plastic sorta outer packing and had the eyeshadow quad’s name. It bothered me that the name wasn’t on the product itself coz I went frantic for a minute; ” Where the heck is the name!?! I thought I remembered picking out the eyeshadow quad with a name on it??!?!”. And yeah, that’s what happened! And then, when I checked out my previous post, hey there’s a name. Thank goodness I did not throw the wrapping away and confirmed that I purchased the Love & Beauty Eyeshadow Quad in Natural.

Place of Purchase

I have yet to see Love & Beauty in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I’ve just dropped by Forever 21 at Midvalley Megamall as I’ve heard how big it is and I just had to. Only noticed some beauty tools and accessories but cosmetics weren’t seen at the time of visit. I purchased mine from Bangkok, Thailand. I am pretty sure by now you have heard enough about me and my awesome Bangkok getaway. lol. If you haven’t already read about my haul, please click here.

Overall, it is an average product. I’d still use it whenever I happen to reach for it. However, I will not purchase another quad from the cosmetics line. Again, it is just my opinion so please don’t stop yourself from trying/ using this product.

Disclaimer: All products were purchased by me unless stated otherwise. Nevertheless, I will provide my honest opinions even if the products were provided for consideration. I am picky and particular in that way.

  1. Nice review! Did not know that love & beauty by Forever 21 had cosmetics. Such a shame that the quality is less than great ’cause the colors in the palette are so pretty! =)
