Maybelline Stylish Smokes Eyeshadow Quad in Natural Smokes Eye Look

Hello, Lovelies. I posted a haul blog yesterday, and in it I had many Maybelline products. The first one I'm going to share with you is the eyeshadow quad in Natural Smokes. This quad has a creamy highlight color, shimmery taupe, shimmery bronze, and a dark matte grayish brown color. I've wanted this quad for a while now, but never picked it up because I own so many neutral eyeshadows. I own many colors similar to the ones in this quad, but I don't regret this purchase at all. These are greatly pigmented, gorgeous shades. I did two different eye looks using this quad. They look pretty similar, but one has a more darkened, defined crease. Here are the pictures, sorry they are blurry!
