These shadows are a solid effort from Annabelle, but unfortunately I find the colour selection very uninspiring. I do own about 3 shades, and they're great quality and pretty colours, but most of the colour range just doesn't interest me. I do like that they're the same size as MAC, and I prefer to keep them in my 15-pan MAC palettes instead of the juvenile (but sturdy) Annabelle compact. I really appreciate what Annabelle is doing with these, brinding a good quality product and the customization option to the drugstore at an attractive price point. Hopefully they will expand the range and offer more inspiring choices in LE collections.

I bought this a while ago when my Shopper's was having it on sale that you would get the compact free when you bought the four eyeshadows to fit in the quad. The eyeshadows were on sale for $2/each so I got the whole compact for $8 - not a bad deal! I picked out Snowflake (matte white), Vanilla Chilla (matte skin tone), Ebony (matte black), and Metallic Meltdown (shimmery bronze). I find that the white and skin tone shadows aren't as pigmented and are a little chalky, but I like using the Vanilla Chilla all over my lid and to blend out crease colours because it is my exact skin colour. The white makes a nice subtle highlight, since it's not very pigmented. The black is very nice and though it's not super duper pigmented, it is nice to put over eyeliner on my waterline. I love the bronze colour, though I don't find myself using it too much because it's a little orange. I may just pick out two shades to replace two that I don't like, because this is a neat idea. The compact itself is so cute, although the packaging kind of sucks because it did break a week after I got it.

Love these! The colours are really vibrant and great. My only issue is that they don't have as much lasting power as I'd like, but I don't mind reapplying once or twice when the product is so inexpensive and looks fantastic. My compact currently contains Ebony (which is really great as a liner), Divine Diva (one of my favourite shades ever; it's a purplish shade that works well for both day and night looks), Rainforest (a really fun bright green), and Vanilla Chilla (the only disappointing one of the lot... lighter than it looks, and while it's still a good quality shadow, it's not the shade I was hoping for and I rarely use it). I'm really looking forward to trying the others!

i bought the custom quad about two weeks ago, two of the smoked, 1 of the bronze and another one of a reddish colour (sorry forgot the names, but it's the colours you would get in the smashbox quad). I gotta say, this is amazing! the colours are wonderful and they stay on forever! i got them on sale for 2.99 each. so total of the 4 colours plus the compact was only $15!! so i was lucky to get it cheaper but these colours are amazing and definately worth the price :)

got theses today at SDM in revolver , vanilla chai , jazz berry and fantasy loving the color payoff on these. Only wore them with a mac primer on under so i don't know if they suck without, however i had to wet the blueish one for it to show. The packaging kinda sucked it was a little pan in a plastic covering it in the plastic sleeve seemed really fragile. Would be alot better if the quad had a mirror on it but a good deal none the less going back tomorrow to get more =)

Excellent product! The colors are well pigmented and either matte or not too shimmery, a rarerity in drugstore brands. The pastilles are decent size so there is a lot of product. I end up not using hte carry case as i have a magnetic metal i stick them on. Great value for price

I was surprised at how pigmented these shadows were when I bought them. I tend to prefer shimmery shadows but in terms of quality for price, these can't be beat. Pigmented, soft, and easy to blend.

I love thesse cute eyeshadows which I picked up while in Toronto, I love alot of things from this brand and wish you could get it outside Canada.

OMG I LOVE THESE!

also if you love their mono eyeshadow you can carefully pop them out of their case and transfer them to the quad!

i have not yet purchased this , but im almost possitive im going to love it when i do ! i have looked at it and i loved the colours or all the available shadows to choose from, and i love that you can customize your own pallette! from what ive seen and used of the single annabell eyeshadows, id say this product is just as amazingg <3333

I love the fact that you can customize your own palette, and at such an affordable price! After reading all the rave reviews here I went to my local Pharmaprix (that's SDM in the rest of Canada) and got the compact and 4 shadows all for under $20: Buff Naked, Divine Diva, Gold Digger and Bronzed Idol. I have dark, olive green eyes with gold tones, so these colors are perfect for me! And unlike other quads, if I run out of one color faster than the others, I can just run out and buy that one pot, pop it into my quad compact and voila! Colors are more pigmented and have longer staying power if primer is used first. All in all, a great investment, and if they stop making the Annabelle e/s (please don't!) then at least I know the MAC e/s pots fit this compact as well! My only gripe is the compact is a bit thick and bulky, and the pots aren't labeled with e/s names, but other than that, I'm very happy with this!

Okay, first off. This stuff is amazing. The packaging is simplistic and easy to use, not to mention the adorable free compact is stylish and something that people want to buy: a custom eyeshadow mini palette. I purchased 8 shadows that came with two compacts at a recent sale for about 28 dollars including taxes..and i am NOT complaining. I've bought all the goldy/brown shades, along with a few limited edition shades and the gorge light plum and muted green. The pigmentation is awesome! A little on the flakey side but nothing that bothers me..I love the colours! I'm just overall really happy:)

LOVE IT! The quad is so sturdy yet compact and the pigmentation of the colours is quite good for a drugstore product. I love that MAC pan eyeshadows can also fit so I can buy Brule and stick it in there. My quad currently holds Metallic Meltdown and Snowflake.

I really like these. The price is great (I bought mine when they were on sale for $3 with a free compact) and the quality is at par with most HE brands. Smooth, blendable, even shimmer or buttery matte. At first the colours didn't excite me too much but they are beautiful and very "practical" - a lot of darks and highlights and not too many bright shades. Some of my favourites: Grafitti to add shimmer to eyeliner, and even in brows (I promise this does not look to dark or fake), so foxy as brow powder, sugar dust as a sweet pink highlight, and b-ray for a navy liner.

The eyeshadow pans and compacts have a RRPof $4.59/ea at SDM, but they were on sale recently for $3/ea. I have attached the photos above of the 4 quads that I have to this product review list. The same photos are also under my profile and are clearer than what are on here.
Each eyeshadow pan has 2g of product and is the same diameter size as MAC's pans. The compact itself is sturdy and very well made. I actually prefer it over MAC's as it has a clear top which allows you to see the colors inside. The magnets inside the compact are super strong, and the pans stay securely in place.
The eyeshadows' texture is soft and creamy. There is minimal fallout, and the color while not too sheer, are not the most super pigmented either. The exception to this is B-ray, which is a limited edition color. This shade is super intense. The colors do intensify more though when you use a primer underneath.
Annabelle has always had excellent eyeshadows, so this is another great product that I highly recommend.

i just bought the quad today since it was on sale for $4. the thing is all the eye shadows were gone! i was only able to get my hands on ebony (black) and snowflake (white) since they were also on sale for $3 dollars a piece. Hopefully ill find more colours at another drugstore or walmart. They really are great quality for an amazing price. to all my Canadian girls their check out your local shoppers drug mart for these eyeshadows before there all gone.

I got this at a local drugstore and oh my goodness it's really great. The eyeshadows are so beautiful and pigmented and great if you are on a budget and still want great quality (comparable to mac eyeshadow...) also I love the fact that it's refillable, because if you run out of a colour you can quickly go out and get a new one without having to buy a whole new quad. I would recommend this product to anyone fantastic quality!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
Annabelle products are such amazing quality. Definitely comparable to MAC. I've put my single Annabelle shadows in my MAC pro pallette. They fit perfectly. Also, the quad containers that you can get are fantastic too. They are magnetized and such great quality. Love them. My only negative comment (not really negative) is that I wish they shadows came in more colours!!!!

These are great quality eyeshadows for the price. I have them all now (except the limited edition ones)and there isn't one I dislike. I really like that these can fit in a MAC palette and hold their own inside it- they're of the same quality pigmentation-wise.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Love Love Love it! I think the idea of choosing your own colors is brilliant, and the packaging choices are amazing. The colors are very good, I love Gold Digger. I was lucky enough to buy it when it was on sale too. Great investment that isn't expensive at all.
