The Organic Face Femme Fatale Eyeshadow Quad And Giveaway!

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

Ooh, do I have a beautiful shadow quad to show you. It's called Mesa from the Organic Face. 

These shimmery metallic shadows with gold undertones are very beautiful and pigmented and the packaging is super cute!

The Mesa Quad is encased in a silver round case with a mirror and with the hot pink Organic Face logo and is 10 grams.

These shadows retail for $24.99 and can be purchased on www.theorganicface.net

Here are some swatches:
First row is without primer and second row is with primer

A Peach shade, A Bronze Shade, A Terracota and an Olive Green Shade
All Have Gold Flecks in them which is pretty cool and makes them unique

These Earthy Toned colors are silky and long wearing and can be worn dry or wet or transformed into an eyeliner.

I was surprised with the first color on the left which is like a light peach swatched but when I applied it to my lid, it turned into a darker peach almost bronze color. So to me, that was a relief because swatched it looked very sheer.

I decided to do a couple of looks with this quad and I'm very pleased with these shadows.

Here are the Mesa Femme Fatale Shadow ingrediants :
Mica (CI 77019), Oryza sativa (Rice) Powder*, Zinc Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Panthenol, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme)Extract, Cinnamomum Zeylanicum Bark Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Lavendula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract
Hydrastis Canadensis (Golden Seal) Root Extract

And here is the first look I did with the Mesa Quad.
I decided to use 2 shadows for a more natural look and to show that using two shadows can also be enough in a look.

So, I used the light peach on my lids and lower lash line and the bronze on my crease and lower lash line as well. I also winged the shadow out a bit something I really don't do but I wanted to experiment. Because, the quad does not have a lighter color I decided to use a highlighter creamy pencil for my browbone and I tight lined my eyes with a black kohl pencil.

For the second look I decided to use the olive color with gold flecks on my lid and the terra-cotta color on my crease and I used both of these colors for my lower lash line. The look came out very elegant yet very simple and very easy to accomplish just by adding some mascara ,tight lightning my eyes with a black kohl pencil and lining my water line.
I did use a flesh toned shadow for my browbone as a highlight. But the choice is yours on how you opt to wear this quad.
Mesa is also great for creating  daytime and evening looks.

Overall, I was very impressed with the texture and pigmentation of these shadows. I do wish they had names on them and maybe a highlighter shade in the center but I guess it wouldn't be considered a quad then lol 

But Yes, these shadows are gorgeous and they lasted well over 8 hours on my lids with primer.
