Undone Beauty Curator Eye Quad Reviews: Outfit Optional, Brick by Brick & Blues Clues

57

Undone Beauty makes one of my favorite eyeshadow formulas so when they released their Curator Eye Quads, I had to pick up a few of them. There are multiple color stories available at $10.00 apiece but I chose Outfit Optional, Brick by Brick and Blues Clues. I created two looks with each of these quads so I’m going to review them separately. Let’s get started!

Outfit Optional has a neutral mauve color story. The shades are: metallic pearl, metallic taupe brown, matte mauve and metallic brown. The formula is fantastic, like all my other Undone Beauty palettes. These shadows contain castor oil and that makes them not only hydrating but also very creamy and easy to blend. All of the shades, matte or shimmer, create almost no fallout.

If I had to think of a possible con for this particular quad, it would be that the deepest metallic brown is a bit warmer than the other three shades. I would have preferred a matte cool toned brown or deep taupe. I’ll show you the two looks I created now.

You may have seen this look in my Valentine’s Day post. It’s super simple but I like the combination of the mauve and brown. Again, though, I wish the brown was cooler in tone.

  1. I set my primer with a matte cream; not included in this particular quad.
  2. I blended the matte mauve into my crease. I also put this shade on my water line.
  3. I applied the metallic taupe brown over my lid.
  4. I applied the metallic pearl in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
  5. I smudged the metallic brown on my lower lash line.

I think this is my favorite look of the two. I love taking a taupe or neutral brown, blending it out and calling the look done. It’s super simple but it’s the kind of look that makes me feel put together. 

  1. I set my primer with a matte cream; not included in this particular quad.
  2. I applied the metallic taupe brown over my lid and blended it up into my crease.
  3. I applied the metallic pearl in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
  4. I lined my lower lash line with the metallic brown.

Brick by Brick has a warm red color story. The shades are: metallic brick red, matte peach, metallic deep brown and metallic dirty gold. The formula for this quad is also great. These shadows contain castor oil and that makes them not only hydrating but also very creamy and easy to blend. All of the shades, matte or shimmer, create almost no fallout.

Even though the formula is great, this is my least favorite of the three quads. I really don’t like the matte peach because I just don’t feel that it works with the metallic shades. This quad would have benefitted from a matte brick shade. I’m also not the biggest fan of the tones of the metallic shades. I don’t hate them but they’re not the kind of colors I will reach for often. I’ll show you the two looks I created now.

I really don’t like this look. I wanted deep, brick red tones but the shades blended out to be more of a peachy red. The shadows all work fine but they just don’t translate on the eyes the same way they look in the pan. I used a highlighter in my inner corner and on my brow bone.

  1. I set my primer with a matte cream; not included in this particular quad.
  2. I blended the matte peach into my crease.
  3. I applied the metallic brick red over my lid. 
  4. I lined my water line with the metallic dirty gold.
  5. I smudged the metallic deep brown on my lower lash line. 

I like this look much more than the previous one. The metallic deep brown is my favorite shade in the quad. 

  1. I set my primer with a matte cream; not included in this particular quad.
  2. I applied the metallic deep brown over my lid and blended it up into my crease. This shade is also smudged on my lower lash line.
  3. I applied the metallic dirty gold in my inner corner. 

Blues Clues has a cool toned blue and gold color story. The shades are: shimmery champagne, metallic copper, metallic blue and matte navy blue. As with the other two quads, the formula is fantastic. These shadows contain castor oil and that makes them not only hydrating but also very creamy and easy to blend. All of the shades, matte or shimmer, create almost no fallout.

Blue shadows are usually not the easiest to work with but these are the best I’ve tried. I’m usually not a big fan of blue eyeshadow but surprisingly, this quad is my favorite of the three. I’ll show you the two looks I created now.

This is my least favorite look of the two I created. It’s not bad, it’s just more basic. 

  1. I set my primer with a matte cream; not included in this particular quad.
  2. I applied the metallic copper all over my lid and blended it into my crease. I also lined my water line with this shade.
  3. I applied the shimmery champagne in my inner corner and on my brow bone. 
  4. I smudged the matte navy blue on my lower lash line.

This is my favorite look out of all the looks I created with these three quads. These blue shadows are gorgeous and so easy to work with. 

  1. I set my primer with a matte cream; not included in this particular quad.
  2. I blended the matte navy blue into my crease. I also applied it on to the outer and inner parts of my lid and smudged it on my lower lash line.
  3. I applied the metallic blue over the majority of my lid. I also applied it on my water line. 
  4. I applied the shimmery champagne in my inner corner and on my brow bone.

If you are curious about any of the other products on my face, you can find these looks in my recent posts on Instagram.

Final Thoughts:

You really can’t go wrong with the Undone Beauty eyeshadow formula. I don’t think I’ve tried a shadow from them yet that I would consider to be a dud. If you see a color story in the quads or the palettes that you like, I think you would be very happy with it. I’d love to know what you think about these quads and the looks I created! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
