Face Off Friday: Lakme Eyeshadow Quad VS Maybelline Eyeshadow Quad

Today’s Competition is between Lakme EyeColor Quartet and Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow.

The lakme quad was one of the first eyeshadow quads i ever bought.but it is the only lakme quad i own too.The maybelline one is a later acquired one.I have it in seashore frosts shade also.

Lakme Quad:

  • Price-Rs.450/-
  • Shade Selection-Available in 5 shades
  • Finish-All are shimmery shades
  • Formula-Too soft and crumbly.RatherΒ  Buttery-Easily breakable,but gets easily picked up by brush.
  • Pigmentation-Very pigmented,but tends to get patchy after a wear of 1/2 hour.
  • Color Combination-Random shades of same color family chosen.
  • Lasting-1-2 hours max. on top of foundation
  • Availability-Not available at ALL counters,and even then all the shades arent available at a time.
  • Packaging-Sturdy Purple Packing.Shadows Randomly placed at random slots.

Maybelline Quad:

  • Price-Rs.225/-
  • Shade Selection-Available in 5 shades (IN INDIA)
  • Finish-Combination of 2 satin finish,1 shimmery and 1 matte shadow.
  • Formula-Rather hard formula.Takes 1 or 2 swipes of brush/applicator for product to be picked up.
  • Pigmentation-Fairly pigmented.Does not streak after wear.
  • Lasting-Lasts for about 3 on top of foundation.
  • Availability-Available at almost all maybelline counters at all times with a choice of minimum of 3 shades at a time.
  • Packaging-Sturdy blue(now black) packaging.Shades placed according to functionality i.e.,lid,highlight,crease,outer v.


Its easily understandable from the above points that Maybelline Expert wear eyeshadow quads walk away the winner of this face-off,knocking Lakme EyeColor Quartet unconscious…………!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ ❀

Buh-Bye For Now!

  1. Hey I have the same Maybelline Quad as well. Pity the Emerald Isle is not available any more 😦
    But I would differ, in terms of quality Lakme is better anyway. But then, we all have our own opinion πŸ™‚
    Interesting post


  2. @cookdookoo-they ARE more pigmented..!!Even i feel so..!

    @rakshanda-i think they are too soft though..!

    @nivedita-i know..! But i hate the fact that the colors in the quad do not go together and the lakme ones have too much fall out and they crease like crazy and i prefer my shadows to be more hard because i don't want them to break or anything..and the greatest reason why i love it because the Maybelline Quads are COMPLETE..because they have all the required shades for a look in it..!
