Of the three quads released in the MAC A Novel Romance Collection you might find the one featured today the easiest to wear day-to-day. An Amorous Adventure is the perfect quartet of shades to create a subtle day look and then smoke it out or make it fun for night.
An Amorous Adventure Eye Shadow Quad ($40.00) contains four eye shadows in Sable (gold-plum with bronze pearl, frost); Sex & the Oyster (midtone seafoam green, veluxe pearl); Brawn (midtone plum brown, satin) and Black Tied (black with silver sparkle, velvet).
The shades making up this quad work so well together. Some are perm and some repromotes, so you may have them in your stash, but if not it does make a nice, neutral palette... with that surprise Sex & the Oyster kick! I do wish Sex & the Oyster came off a little more pigmented under the eye and (as I'm sure you know) Black Tied was a little dry but worked nicely when blended over-top of other shades.
In the eye look below I began by using UDPP as my base. Sable is on the lid, Brawn is in the crease and blended up, Black Tied is at the outer V and Sex & the Oyster is smudged lightly along the outer third of the lower lash line. MAC Teddy Eye Kohl is the liner and Milani Total Lash Cover is the mascara.
