Top Left Shadow:

Applied at 12:30 pm

Crease time without primer: 2:00 pm, 1 hour and 30 minutes

Crease time with e.l.f. eyeshadow primer: 7:00 pm, 6 hours and 30 minutes

Fade time without primer: 4:00 pm, 3 hours and 30 minutes

Fade time with e.l.f. eyeshadow primer: 8:00 pm, 7 hours and 30 minutes

Fallout to rest of face: Light fallout.

Can I actually see the color on the lid: Very well.

Day or Night Makeup:

Day makeup, although not work makeup. It lasted long enough and showed well enough that I would wear it out of the house, although I would probably have to use a better primer to feel comfortable wearing it to work.


Top Right Shadow:

Applied at 9:30 am

Crease time without primer: 1:30 pm, 4 hours.

Crease time with e.l.f. eyeshadow primer: 5:30 pm, 8 hours.

Fade time without primer: 11:00 am, 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Fade time with e.l.f. eyeshadow primer: Did not leave it on after it creased so I cannot give a time for this.

Fallout to rest of face: Light fallout.

Can I actually see the color on the lid: It does appear as the color in the pan when applied with a patting motion. When applied with a sweeping motion it shows very poorly.

Day or Night Makeup:

Day makeup, this did surprisingly well given it is a yellow eye shadow which don’t always work that well.


Bottom Left Shadow:

Applied at 9:45 am

Crease time without primer: 11:45 am, 2 hours.

Crease time with e.l.f. eyeshadow primer: 4:45 pm, 7 hours.

Fade time without primer: 11:45 am, 2 hours.

Fade time with e.l.f. eyeshadow primer: 4:45 pm, 7 hours.

Fallout to rest of face: There was a lot of fallout to this one, tap off well if you use it.

Can I actually see the color on the lid: This did eventually get to the color in the pan but required more product to be applied than the previous yellow shadow. This is most likely intended as a highlight color.

Day or Night Makeup:

Day makeup, as a highlighter only though. When I tested the blend ability of the four shadows, this ended up being used as the brow and inner corner highlight and did really well when used with a light hand.


Bottom Right Shadow:

Applied at 1:45 pm

Crease time without primer: 8:00 pm, 6 hours and 15 minutes.

Crease time with e.l.f. eyeshadow primer: Never actually saw a crease line.

Fade time without primer: 6:00 pm, 4 hours and 15 minutes.

Fade time with e.l.f. eyeshadow primer: 10:15 pm, 8 hours and 30 minutes.

Fallout to rest of face: Surprisingly there was no fallout.

Can I actually see the color on the lid: Yes, but it looks more orange than it does in the pan and it wears down more orange than it does in the pan. It also did not go on totally opaque no matter how hard I tried because it is so shimmery and I was always able to see little spots of skin through the color.

Day or Night Makeup:

Day makeup, but only if keeping in mind that this color probably is going to turn orange over the course of the day. This did alright as a crease color when the first yellow was underneath it and the green was layered on top of the outer portion to deepen the crease.

Can two colors from the same brand be blended together:

All four colors in the quad actually worked together really well to come up with a completed eye look that I was very happy with and lasted all day when using the primer on both lids.
