THESE ARE A-W-F-U-L! DON'T BUY THIS!

By WinterStars

Comments about Almay Shadow Squad:

First of all how dare Almay portraying themselves as a reputable brand yet put out garbage like this!!! Granted, I'll give credit where it's due by saying that the innovative concept of a monochrome eyeshadow quad with four different finishes in a single compact is something no other Cosmetic Company has put out, at least not that I've seen. It's really a great idea, but the product itself needs to deliver an supercede expectations! And this is something this product DOES NOT DO! If any this is a Giant disappointment and has let the majority of the consumers down as far as I'm concerned. Like MANY OTHERS have said, There is NO color pay off, NO pigmentation you'll be lucky if you see anything at all regardless of how hard you dig your brush in, regardless of how many times you swipe the color, it's the same result, completely inferior, overpriced garbage! We all can't be wrong! Almay better start stepping up in the right direction or else people slowly but surely will stop wasting our hard earned money on their products and it'll be forgotten about! SO many better quality products out there that actually perform and deliver, Only the strong survive

      Don't waste a dime on these...
      I can't speak to any other shades, but if they're anything like ambition then they have no pigmentation or color whatsoever. I swatched mine when I got it home and I couldn't believe how little color came off. Also, when swatched, the two mattes and the two shimmers are functionally identical so what looks like a quad is essentially a duo. Ulta has wonderful, inexpensive eyeshadows for sale like colourpop and morphe. Pass on these.

      Doesn't have any pigment

      Comments about Almay Shadow Squad:

      This product is just awful. It is too powdered. It doesn't show any color like there is no pigmentation at all. Don't buy it.

          Comments about Almay Shadow Squad:

          I bought two at my local Ulta, the teal and the gold. Almost no pigmentation, and even when there is, all four shades in one compact are basically the same. The only good reviews I've read of this is from people who got it free. I threw mine away after trying to make them work several times.

          Why are most..

          By Meggs117

          from Texas

          Comments about Almay Shadow Squad:

          Why are most of the high reviews from people talking about their paid sponsorship? These are weak. No pigmentation. Bought 4. The taupe quad literally had no pay off from the matte!

                  Comments about Almay Shadow Squad:

                  I bought five of these and found the color payoff to be average to poor and they are difficult to blend well. The idea of four finishes for one color in a single eyeshadow is a very good one though. If the product performed better I would be a huge fan.

                  Comments about Almay Shadow Squad:

                  Almay Shadow Squad Ambition is a lovely combination of colors that create a super pretty celebratory look. The colors still have a neutral vibe, which I'm all about, but there is a subtle rose hue and a really nice sparkle that make it seem super fun for a party, going out or celebratory event. I was impressed with how easy this was to apply. Additionally, the colors are highly pigmented and stay in place until you remove it. I did struggle with blending a bit but I think a good eye primer would resolve this for future use. Happy with this product for sure!
