I've worn this since the late 1990s!! A staple in my collection, I am never without this. The CG Cafe Au Lait trio has some similar colors. I love Country Woods with some black eyeliner/mascara & a brown nude lip color. The e/s in this quad are fairly sheer this isn't UD but w a good e/s primer can be made more pigmented looking. I know I'm probably going to get hate mail but I actually like the sponge tipped applicator (lol). Not a ton of fall out w this quad if u use the applicator it comes with. The packaging is sturdy if u break the hinges u can use a hair binder to go around the middle a couple of times if this needs to go into a makeup bag/travel. A staple for me, I hope CG never quits making this but odds are they will since its been around forever. I fondly remember when my best friend intro'd me to this quad!

I so wanted this to work for me because it had such glowing reviews. But either it's old stock so it dried out, or it's just not right for my fair skin. The shades were all so similar and way too muddy and yellowish. No pigmentation at all and impossible to create a smoky or sculpted eye. This is completely unusable for me.

OMG I have been using this shadow for forever and I can't live without it! It is apart of my makeup routine and I just will never stop using it! I actually buy it 2 or 3 at a time depending on the sale at local stores. Furthermore, being a beauty queen allows me to try many different types of make up, but this one will forever be apart of my routine. However, I only use 3 of the 4 colors. I only use the Mink, Mocha, and Barely beige. If you are an African American female of my skin tone this is the product for you!!! BTW I use the Mink and Mocha (mixed together) as a concealer and the Barely beige as a high lighter! Weird but it works for me!

Country Woods--I heard all the reviews about how sheer these were but they were not kidding. The colors are so similar it is almost impossible to tell the difference between them. For the price I expected a bit more from these. They barely show up on my skin they are only useful for adding just the SLIGHTEST depth to the crease for a natural look. Honestly I get a better result with liner and mascara. I have no use for 3 almost identical shades in one super sheer pallet. I ended up keeping these as I wouldn't get much returning them anyway. I alternate between the first brown shade and the last in the crease. The light color I use on the lid once in a while then use one of the darker ones in the crease(lol darker haha crackes me up).It does add the slightest bit of definition which is better than nothing I guess. The second shade I find is more shimmery and gold/bronze toned. I sometimes will use this all over the lid with mascara only. These are a weird texture. I don't know how to explain it. It is kinda hard to pick up onto your brush and wear away in the pan in an odd way. BUT on a good note I have noticed that even without a primer I find these crease the least out of ALL my shadows...Very interesting. Maybe I will try some other shades. Since I have very oily skin and these actually last on me maybe I will have good results with some of the others.

I love this quad! The colors are great for a natural look, but just dark enough so you can tell tou are wearing makeup. I have 4 of these quads ( Country woods, pure romance, coffee shop, sheerly nudes). While I thought the blue packaging was cute, the rounded top made them hard to stack for storage. I am so glad they changed the packaging to just simple black with a flat top! I will purchase again, I reccomend any of the quads but country woods is my personal favorite.

I seriously love this product beyond words!!! I can't tell you how much I love this palette! I absolutely love the light color in the palette (barley beige) and I use it almost everyday! The pigmentation is great the colors are great and the price is great! This product is amazing!

I was looking for a cheap neutral eye palette and I found this one! I love all the colours except Barely Beige. I just think it is too light and shimmery for me. But other than that, I am in love with the other colours. The colour payoff is alright. It's definitely not the best. I like to pair this over cream shadows. My favourite colour combination is Benefit's creaseless cream shadow in RSVP and then Coffee from the palette. The one thing I dislike about the palette is definitely the packaging. It's flimsy and the plastic cover already came off twice for me.I think it's the perfect cheap neutral eye palette. The other one would probably be Covergirl's Shimmering Sands trio. Check that one out too!

A decent eyeshadow quad that is full of nice neutrals. The pigmentation is decent. I like this quad for every day wear. The quality is ok. Nothing exceptional. I just do not find myself using it that much and not excited to use it.

Good for a natural look. By natural i mean VERY natural. It defines and can highlight but good for just adding definition to your eyes. I wouldn't buy it again only because I have so many neutrals. They are good, though.

Can I just say how much I LOVE THIS! These shadows are NOT matte. They have a little shimmer in them, but it looks matte enough when you swatch it. They stay put all day, and this is great for someone who just wants to contour their eyes. I just wish they had a little mirror so it's good for traveling!
