EOTD - Maybelline Expert Wear Quad in Enchanted Forrest

Yes, it's true.
My world has been rocked by Maybelline eyeshadow.

I believe I picked this up as part of a BOGO offer at one of my local drugstores. I thought the colors looked really nice, so I picked it up. It had been sitting in my stash for quite a while and recently discovered it last week. And as I was applying it...I had to do a double take. Is this...really...Maybelline?

Allow me to show you the evidence:

The quad, apologies for the shoddy lighting.

Swatches: Lid color, crease,
highlight/brow bone, outer crease
(note: this was done dry with no base).

Um, Hi. Where have you been all my life.

I originally applied and wore this to work, however in the photo below it is much heavier. I decided to just add a bit more for when I went bowling that night. It's darker in the bowling alley so I figured I could get away with it, right? Right.

I have NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Iced Mocha on as a base on my lid to my crease. Then from the quad I used the shadows just how they are packaged. The lid color is on the lid....the green crease color is in the crease, the bown is on the outter lid and guess where the brow bone/highlighter shade is at? I also have on Mark's On The Edge liquid liner in Nefertiti (a lovely dark olive green) and L'Oreal Bare Naturale mascara.

Needless to say I'm really really really super keen on this quad. I haven't decided if I'll take the plunge and try out any of the others. Will they all be as super-gorgeous as this one? Or is this the only diamond in the batch?

Way to go 3 years later after this post. This quad was never available in my country, but I think I realized it can be dupable with products by Maybelline itself. Singles Golden Halo and Urban Brown and Baked duo Bronze Blowout.
