I didn't expect to purchase Variation, much less love it. Plum hues and I don't get along, and I was afraid this quad would make me look bruised, not brilliant. There is one shade in Variation I cannot and will not wear. The plum in the lower right corner. It looks absolutely sickening on me. I can't imagine applying a black eye on purpose.
The rest of the quad is gorgeous. I swatched with sponge-tipped applicators and moved clockwise from the pink at the top left to the greyed brown on the bottom left. I took my photos in full, afternoon sun.
I purchased Variation at Neiman Marcus. It's available on the Neiman Marcus Web site with free shipping in the U.S. (FSFALL). It's also available at Bloomingdale's online. If you want either new quad - Intuition or Variation - (or the repromoted Eclosion), you have a new excuse to go shopping.
