Pursebuzz-logoHey Pursebuzzers :)
Today’s review features a Color Perfection Quad in Medium from Motives Cosmetics.

This is the Motives Quad featured with a “glamprincessxoxo” secret blending sponge ($10.50) link below.

IMG_7723This quad is pretty much a (Foundation/Concealer/Highlighter) all in one!
IMG_7724This is the Motives Quad in MEDIUM. 
IMG_7725Motives also carries 3 other quads in LIGHT, MEDIUM DARK, and DARK.

IMG_7726There’s plenty of product– lasts a while. A little goes a long way.
IMG_7745As you can see, I applied the lighter color on the bridge of my nose and the high points of my face.
I used the darker colors around my forehead, under my highlight and the corners of my nose to add more dimension. 
IMG_7773 As for application, apply the different shades wherever you want to highlight & contour.
I love using a blending sponge– I dampen the sponge with water & I blend away to achieve that flawless face.IMG_7777**Overall, I really like the versatility of this foundation quad. You can use the lighter shades to highlight points of your face and the darker shades to create dimension on your face. Also, you can use the colors in between the light and dark to blend both the highlight and contour together like I did in the pictures above. These shades are highly pigmented & a little goes a long way. You can build up your foundation to either medium or full coverage; it really just depends on your preference & what look you’re trying to achieve. It’s great coverage & very easy to blend! The foundations are photography friendly. I don’t see that white cast on my face when I refer back to the photos, so I think these quads are great for any make-up artist or make-up lover. I definitely recommend this quad & I’ll definitely be adding the LIGHT quad to my kit!

PROS: no parabens, perfect for contouring & highlighting, versatile, paraben & fragrance free. 
CONS: none:)
