I am typically a fan of MAC shadows. When I tried the Maybelline Expertwear quad in Designer Chocolates, I was pleasantly surprised. The set is full of great neutral shades. The colors work perfectly together. The payoff is nice and every color showed well on my skin.
I think if I had to point out a flaw, I would say it would be the sponge tip applicators. I have grown accustom to using brushes and the sponges felt a bit scratch to me. I did use them however, and had no problem with application. Everything applied nicely, with great blending, and nothing chalky.
The best thing about this set is I got four great colors for very little money. I also love the fact that Maybelline products are easily accessable.
