EOTD: Maybelline Eye Studio in Cozy Cashmere

I've been meaning to show you guys this Maybelline Eye Studio quad for awhile now! It's Cozy Cashmere, and was part of the limited edition fall collection. I love wearing really warm colors on my eyes, and I've been using the heck out of all my neutral palettes lately, so I knew I had to have this quad! It's a good "neutral with a twist" set of colors. Sorry I didn't show this to you guys before now; this may be difficult to find now, although I've seen a couple floating around drugstores recently. I found mine on a display at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Cozy Cashmere has an incredibly shimmery/ frosty champagne beige, a warm medium brown with gold sparkle, a nearly-matte burnt orange, and a nearly-matte deep brick red that leans a touch burgundy. I wish there was a fifth matte nude shade so you aren't stuck with the shimmery color as your only highlighter, but if that's the only other eyeshadow single I have to use to make an eye look out of this quad, I'm still a happy camper.

The following swatches are in the order of the quad, but backwards; left to right is the burgundy shade, the burnt orange, the medium brown, and the champagne.

And here I am wearing the colors over eye primer, with an ivory matte highlight shade under the brow bone.



Summary: These shadows are very pigmented and easy to blend. The colors are great for fall and are definitely unique; I don't have any other drugstore shadows in these colors. I'm really happy I picked this quad up, and wish that I'd tried it out sooner so I could let you guys in on the good news before now!

What do you guys think of this set? Do you wear warm oranges and reds on your eyes? I know some people are afraid they'll look like they have pink eye with red colors near their eyes. As long as I use a liner alongside red or orange colors like this, I don't worry about that too much.

Did anyone else pick up this quad?

    1. I think I saw these most recently at my local Rite Aid, but these things vary so much... I'd call around and ask if you're looking for one! You might try online retailers like Drugstore.com and Ebay, too.
