Quad Royale-ing~

I took the Edward Bess Quad Royale for a test drive last week~ Having seen such nice reviews, I was hoping it would look just as gorgeous on me!

In case you've forgetten, this is the Quad Royale Face Illuminator and Colour from Edward Bess.


Quad Royale Shade 03: Summer in Capri ; S$56 from Luxola.com


Let's start with a made-up face sans the Quad Royale.


Ok. Decent enough, just a little pasty-looking. Enter Quad Royale.


Brushed in a circular motion over the palette then swiped all over the face. Used the 2 shades on the 1st row on the apples of my cheeks.


Can u see the added luminosity? =D I like it!! Looks really natural with just a touch of glow. (Or am I just dillusional? >_<)

I was in the muggy weather for about 30min then in aircon comfort for the next 5 hours till I got home. I hadn't checked my makeup the entire time but I suspect I might have needed a slight touchup if I was going to stay out any longer. I was satisfied with the slight glow and hint of colour that I still had on.

No touchups for 6 hours!
My thoughts on the EB Quad Royale:
  • Really pretty colours that I should probably be more heavy handed with next time
  • Pretty good staying power despite a dinner, a light sweat and some muggy weather.
  • Compact holder that's sleek and portable but I wish the brush was finer considering the price.
  • Quite pricey at S$56 so probably not a purchase I would repeat.

Honestly, today's makeup combination really made my day. I've never come home with the foundation looking so intact before. I like a dewiness to my look so the slight sheen doesn't really bother me~ =)
