Edward Bess Monte Carlo Quad Royale

Edward Bess is making its debut on Belle Belle Beauty. And it is about time. I am a big fan of the brand, and the Monte Carlo Quad Royale doesn’t disappoint.

This palette is nimble and well-made. I love the ability to mix-and-match portions of the palette to highlight cheeks and eyes. Or use all four colors blended together for a sun-kissed look. Using the colors for both eyes and cheeks gives a beautiful beach-bunny and natural look. Perfect for a casual evening with lip gloss and mascara.

The powder is creamy and soft. The effect is fairly sheer but still radiant. And I’ve found the pigment is easily buildable. The color in the upper left corner is a very sheer, iridescent peach. Top right is a silvery peach that is moderately opaque. Bottom left is a sheer, metallic apricot. Bottom right is a more opaque peachy pink shimmer.

The palette also comes in Summer in Capri (and beige pink) and South of France (a silvery beige). Monte Carlo is by far my favorite, being universally flattering and making for the best bronzer.
