Physician's Formula Matte Collection Quads Swatches & Review

There are a lot of quads or palettes being introduced by different beauty brands but mostly the eye shadows consists in their palettes are mostly shimmers, satin or sometimes with glitters that only one or two or if you're lucky, 4 matte finish eye shadows. When Physician's Formula which is one of my favorite drugstore brand introduced not duo, not trio but 4 quads of matte shades take note matte... I was jumping for joy! And a plus is that a lot of the shades included can be comparable to some expensive eye shadow shades like MAC cosmetics. Oh, I would like also to add a bonus info - they are in the permanent line, isn't it amazing?!
Let's take a look at what I bought or actually, I bought all of it hahaha!


All of the quads are consists of creamy vanilla shades to light browns to deep taupe or grey tones.


All of the quads are packed in slim carton, the back PF describes their Matte collection.


At the top of the carton are the ingredients of the eye shadows were printed.


The eye shadows are neatly placed inside in a slim lilac grey sturdy plastic fit for traveling without the fuss & mess while the top cover has a window (a glass like) for you to see easily the shades that's also saves time.


It also includes a duo sided sponge tip applicator with a slim rectangular shaped mirror that your whole eye area can be seen for easy view when applying eye shadows on your lids without ever worrying of mistakenly applying of shadows.


The first quad is the Classic Nudes which consists of (starting from top left clockwise) 
     Top left - a light cool toned brown shade
     Top right - a light beige shade
     Bottom left - a milky white shade
     Bottom right - a medium brown shade








All of the 3 shades are very pigment while the white one is powdery upon swatching

The next quad is the Canyon Classics which consists of (starting from top left clockwise)
     Top left - a light creamy beige shade (reminds me of MAC brulee)
     Top right - a creamy white shade (like MAC vanilla but this one a slight whiter)
     Bottom left - a light mauve-y shade with purple undertone
     Bottom right - a soft medium brown shade




Both the mauve-y shade & creamy white are powdery but the latter is more powdery so be careful of the fall outs. Better tap off the excess before applying the shadow while the mauve-y shade is more forgivable & the other two are pigmented.

And last quad is the Quartz Quartet (you already have an idea what are the shades) which consists of (starting from the top left clockwise)
     Top left - a light purple-y cream shade
     Top right - a cream vanilla beige shade
     Bottom left - a slightly deep greyish brown shade
     Bottom right - a deep purple brown shade




This quad is what I love the most among the 3 because only one shade is powdery while the rest is pigmented though, the  right most is a little chunky & gritty.

Overall, I love them though not all of them are very pigmented as what drugstore have hits and misses but still most of them are very pigmented which is very hard to find in a drugstore product. They have a complete line of neutral, matte shades plus the compact is good especially or traveling or for those always on the go. For those who wants a simple, quick yet versatile look.

Have you tried Physician's Formula matte collection? What is/are your favorites?
