I like it, too. I was looking for a trio or quad to take with me on vacation so I didn't have to drag around so much stuff. I have several, but it seems that almost all of them are too sparkly. I wanted matte, and I totally got it with this one. One of the medium shades has a little bit of shimmer to it, but that's ok. The light shade works great as a base, and the darkest shade is just dark enough but not too dark for the crease. I had no trouble with the pigment. Seems just right to me. I usually use brushes, but I found that even the little applicator that comes with the product works fine with this. What a surprise! I like the texture. It doesn't flake, and it stays on. Quite pleased.
I've had bad experiences with drugstore eyeshadows (except wet n wild) in the past. I figured since the drugstore has been on a roll with awesome makeup products, I would give these eyeshadows a try. This quad sucks soooo bad. Colors are chalky and not pigmented. Only 2 colors that are alright are the cream and silver/taupe shades. Other than that, I wouldn't wanna try any other quads from this line or from any other drugstore brand besides wet n wild. Wouldn't repurchase.
At first glance I thought I would love this neutral quad. But unfortunately, I find that the shades look a slight bit darker than my skin tone and it doesn't look too great. The price was fairly inexpensive for a quad but I don't think I will be purchasing again.
To my own fault, I tend to steer clear of drugstore eye shadows and for the reasons why I don't like this product: it's chalky, void of pigmentation, and takes a lot of layering to see 3/4 of the colors.
I was at Walgreens today and seeing as Revlon was BOGO1/2OFF, I decided to pick up a foundation and *gasp* try a drugstore eye shadow palette. I came home and promptly tried it out in hopes that it would be something I'd fall in love with! Unfortunately, I didn't. I expected the first color to not show up as much-as it's essentially flesh toned- but not the other three.
I will be taking this one back and trying a different line of drugstore eye shadow in hopes of finding the perfect one.
In my opinion: steer clear of this palette unless you want eye shadows that have major fall out, are powdery, and 3/4 hardly show up at all.
its an alright palette nothing special
some of the colors are not very pigmented
i dont reach for this one often
for the price its not worth it
will not buy again
Who knew. Been going to Sephora for weeks trying Urban Decay shadows (the matte and semi-mattes) and trying to find an excuse to spend the ridiculous amount it would cost to buy them separately instead of Naked I or II palette, since the only colors in them I would really use are the mattes, and here it is, staring me in the face, in my local Target.
In heaven with this quad. Silky, not chalky. Each color provides enough pigment and together, they are lovely. Much more than the higher-end brands I'd been thinking of buying. Yay. Stocking up on this one.
Awesome e/s quad.Excellent staying power,great color pay off.Use as an everyday work e/s basic.Will definitely continue to buy this palette~
This is hands down the best drugstore neutral palette that I've tried, and I've tried more than I can count. This is my new go-to for work appropriate smokey eyes. Each of the eye shadows are buttery fine and incredibly blendable, and well pigmented enough that they can be played down for day and then built up for the evening. These aren't chalky or powdery at all, and the color stays put for hours, even without a primer. I'm often disappointed with the brow-bone colors in brown-eyed palettes, but this one was perfectly balanced for a light-medium skin tone.
The price is also awesome for a drug store product-- not the most expensive shadow on the shelf, but you totally get the bang for your buck in color. The packaging is a little cheap feeling, though, and doesn't seem very sturdy.
Overall, I know these quads have been getting poor reviews in general, but I had a really good experience with this formula.
WOW! What a lovely surprise! I have had my eye on this for a while. I usually stick to MAC and Urban Decay - and even within those brands I stick with "boring" neutral colors (cuz that's what I like), and this one fit the bill, but who needs more neutrals?
This was on sale AND I had a coupon, so I jumped. WOW. The formula is superb! So soft and buttery without being dry and chalky. It goes on sooo smoothly. Great amount of pigment. I have found my new 'daily' daytime neutral. Definitely pick this up. It has replaced my Loreal Hip Duo in Shady (my previous go-to - i hit PAN on that one - then i bought another one and formula was TOTALLY different and chalky...hated it...i digress...)
