The Open Up! Eyeshadow Quad Set comes with the two palettes and a dual sided brush that I don’t have, but if you watch the video on QVC you can see the brush in action and it looks really nice. The two palettes feature neutral shades, one with day colors and the other with deeper evening shades. Both palettes have a combination of matte and shimmer shades, and the texture is soft and velvety thanks to the coconut butter-infused formula. I find that these eyeshadow apply easily, blend well, and last all day with a primer.
The Everyday Nudes Palette has from top right going clockwise: Sand, a shimmering creamy beige; Terra Cotta, a matte brownish orange; Earth, a shimmery deep golden brown; and Clay, a matte medium brown.
Sand is a perfect base shade and I often wear just this plus some thick black eyeliner. I also love the Terra Cotta – it’s a great lid shade, as well as a beautiful crease shade for some depth without a lot of drama. Earth and Clay are nice, workhorse shades. This is a wonderful, versatile palette that is belongs in everyone’s collection.
The Everyday Deep Neutrals Palette has from top right going clockwise: Cashew, a shimmery taupe; Brazil Nut, a matte medium brownish gray; Acorn, a shimmery bronze; and Almond, a shimmery medium brown.
The Everyday Deep Neutrals is more dramatic than the Everyday Nudes but it’s still demure enough for anytime, really. Cashew is a beautiful wash that might be too shimmery for some, but I love it. Brazil Nut leans a little purple on me, which I like. I use this as a crease shade then define it with Acorn and it is just gorgeous.
I think that Mally makes beautiful cosmetics that are infinitely wearable, especially for those of us who aren’t particularly graceful with our cosmetics. She is like the savior for those with bad eyes and pre-coffee hands. It is pretty impossible to overdo it with her palettes, and anyone from a novice to a pro can easily get amazing looks. Mally recommends starting with the eyeshadow in the top right corner then working your way around the palette going clockwise, with the top right shadow as your all over wash, bottom right on the lid, bottom left on the crease, and top left to line along the lashes. This is the way I use these palettes and it gives me great results every time.
