The Quad Royale from Edward Bess is a “palette of four coordinated shades to sculp and highlight the face.” The four luminous shades can be used individually or swirled together for all-over color. Summer in Capri is one of the three variations of the Quad Royale palette and is described as a beige-pink. Also available is Monte Carlo 02, a golden coral (reviewed by mybeautysample.com) and South of France 01, a shimmery sand and the lightest of the three (reviewed by indigo-kir-royale.com)
The Quad Royale is a lengthy 4 1/2 inches to accommodate the included brush. I do like the shape of the brush but it is rather rough and does impart heavy pigment, so be light. I would personally rather tote along a separate brush for touch-ups.
The formula is exquisite and blends into the skin beautifully. The powder is incredibly soft and imparts strong pigment. The micro-shimmering particles leave behind a believable luminous glow. I do suggest using a soft brush and a light hand to slowly build up color to your desired intensity. A small soft contour brush is best for applying the colors individually.
Summer in Capri is a collection of peach, mauve, tan, taupe, and pale pink tones. Most often, I first apply the two deepest shade on to the contours of my cheeks and temples. I then apply all four shades swirled together onto my cheeks.
The swatches in both lights are true to their nature as they appear on my monitor. The photo with flash helps to show the gorgeous sheen that this powder possesses although not as well as it does in person. I am personally smitten with the formula and finish. In the image below please note that I have over-applied the blush to help show the color.
