Unleash your inner artist and create a makeup masterpiece every day with the SUGAR Blend The Rules Eyeshadow Quads. With a range of 17 high-performing mattes and extra-creamy metallics, these super-pigmented shades are infinitely smooth and incredibly easy to blend.

How To Apply
- Start by taking a colour that is a shade or two darker than your skin tone and run it back and forth onto your crease as a transition shade
- Start blending at the point where you want the deepest colour, like the outer corner and aim toward the place where you want the lightest colour. By doing this, a gradient will be created by the colour choice alone
- Next go for the shimmer shade on the lid to get that pop. Use the doe-tip sponge applicator or a damp flat brush or your finger for that additional depth
- Use a darker shade on the crease to define the eye shape. Start applying from the outer corner of the eye, making a ‘V’, and blend it halfway through the eyelid with the round eyeshadow blending brush
Easy Shade Guide:
- The lightest colour usually works well as a brow bone highlighter.
- The second lightest colour usually looks good on the lid and creates a base to apply the shade of your choice, matte or shimmer
- The second darkest colour usually works best on the crease
- The darkest colour usually works best in the outer corner

My experience with SUGAR Blend The Rules Eyeshadow Quads:
What a super chic Packaging!! <3 The quads come in a very attractive orange and black color sleek cardboard packaging with magnetized flip lid. The magnetic closure is strong enough to keep it closed tightly in order to keep the eyeshadow secured and intact during storing or traveling. Every quad carrying 4 beautiful eyeshadows along with a dual-ended sponge applicator. The applicator is quite good and can be very handy during travel. I wish these had a mirror too! :/ Anyways, the name of the quad is motioned right on the flip lid whereas all other necessary information is mentioned on the backside. Overall, the packaging is quite compact, sleek and definitely travel-friendly.
Shades and Swatches:
I chose 6 eyeshadow quads out of 18. Here’s a closer look and swatches for each of them:
It has champagne gold, bronze gold, metallic rose gold, and copper. Yes, all the shades are metallic in this quad. I would highly suggest this palette to achieve a subtle metallic look, especially for wedding season.
I am a fan of smokey look! And..This one is my FAVOURITE among these 6 quads. This quad has grey, bright blue, metallic purple and blackened purple shades. If you love dramatic blue/purple smokey look like me then girl..dont even think twice and grab this one just now! Trust me, the richness of purple shades will highlight the clarity of your eye color instantly! <3
A perfect color selection for a midnight blue smokey look, this one has a bright blue, metallic smokey teal, metallic purple and grey shade. Another stunning Eyeshadow Quad! <3
This eyeshadow quad has a grey, bright blue, metallic smokey teal and blackened purple shade. Since it has a blacked purple shade thus you can create more drama and can achieve more intense smokey and bold midnight look with it. Love this one too!!!
It has champagne gold, bright gold, metallic smokey teal and stunning copper. This one is a definitely perfect choice to create a heavy metallook for parties/wedding season!
I love this quad! From Soft nude look to badass blues, this quad has complete 4 shades to create no makeup look as well as to create deep Blue hue look! It has cream and subtle mauve to metallic purple and bright blue.
Formula, Texture, Pigmentation and lasting power:
I tried these shadows and was pleasantly surprised at how creamy they were! Very easy to blend and there was No fallout!!! These have a very creamy formula. All the shades are smooth and buttery to the touch and glide seamlessly onto your lids while providing intense color payoff with a silky-soft feel. The texture is soft, buttery and blends out easily. All four shades work well together and provide opaque color coverage. Not only these eyeshadows are easy to work with but also they have an amazing lasting too. With eye primer, these lasted for more than eight hours on me without creasing!
When it comes to my signature look, I prefer heavy smokey look thus I chose all the 6 vivid quads rather than subtle ones! Certainly, with these, you can create anything from everyday look to a dramatic smokey eye or anything in between you like! Here I have created a heavy smokey look by using one of my favorite quads “06 DISTURBIA”from this range and I absolutely love how it turned out!!! <3 <3

Overall,SUGAR Blend The Rules Eyeshadow Quads can take you from day to slay in just a few swipes. Velvety smooth (almost creamy) in texture, rich color payoff and excellent in quality, OMG these are so apt!!! From these quads, you can just use one shade as an all over lid shade to create a sophisticated look or create a little extra drama with multiple shades but definitely, you are going to love these girls!!!
