Very pretty shades but they are all way too glittery apart from the dark brown shade. Otherwise nice texture and looks good on green eyes. Just too sparkly for my liking.

Great quad fot a daytime smoky eye. I honestly think this quad will flatter every eye color. Plays up the warm tones in my blue/grey/green eyes. Would be fantastic on green eyes and brown eyes too. That's just about everyone.

I really like Maybelline eye shadows, and this did not fail to disappoint. I have green eyes so plums look great on me. I picked this up for 50% off at CVS, which means it is probably being discontinued, which I could care less about because while this is a beautiful palette, it is not unique. I could find very similar plum colors elsewhere. That said, this is not really all that smokey. It's reasonably pigmented, and you could probably layer this to get a true smokey look, but I just use it for day at the office. Nice texture like all Maybelline shadows. Overall, if you see this on sale, scoop it up. It's worth the tiny amount you will spend on it.

I bought this 50% off at CVS the other day. Maybelline shadows can be hit or miss, but this quad is a winner!
It's called Plum Smokes but it's not really dark and smokey which is why I I like it. I don't really like a heavy, dark eye. These colors really enhance my green eyes; they are well pigmented and blend out very well. I was able to achieve a pretty, work appropriate look with this quad without a ton of shimmer and glitter.
I really, really love this quad and if I see it again I will grab another one. The fact that it's on sale at CVS means it's probably going to be discontinued.
Green eyed ladies need to grab this quad!

Great Quad from Maybelline This came really cheap so I am very happy about this eyeshadow quad. The colours are highly pigmented and they take out the guesswork from my eyeshadow application. I LOVE the colours separately as well!
There isn't much fallout at all but it is soft in the pan so i have found finger application works best. Has pretty ok staying power.
Would repurchase for sure.

I have brown/hazel-ish eyes and purple really makes them look amazing, much better than brown shadows. I bought this on sale at ulta on a whim. I really love this palette. The shades are gorgeous and they do make an amazingly pretty smokey eye. Lasting power isn't the greatest but with a good primer, it lasts about 6-8 hours before it starts to fade. I would totally buy this again. If you're thinking about buying it, just give it a try. Its cheap and I use it almost daily.

LOVE this quad!! This makes my hazel eyes pop like no other...I'm usually a neutral girl, but I do like using some color - especially if it comes in a quad like this, because it takes all the guesswork out of picking out shades that will match and complement each other. These shadows aren't as pigmented as say, WnW or MAC/NARS/other HE brands, but the colors are very pretty, and if you use a primer, you should be set. Not very much fallout at all, practically none, so that's good.
I took one lippie off because my eyes are sometimes a little sensitive to shadow, and for the first few hours I wore this, my eyes were definitely a little itchy....but honestly, I don't even care. The colors look GORGEOUS on my eyes!

Plum Smokes isn't as smokey as the other Stylish Smokes quads, but it's still a nice palette. I really like the two shades on the left--the pale shimmery peach (similar to MAC Jest) and the golden plummy color. I think these shadows have a really great quality for drugstore products, and I would definitely recommend any of the Stylish Smokes quads.

I almost bought the lavender smokes , but got this one instead...glad I did , very complementary colors for green eyes. I love the lid color , too ,by itself .I did not like the crease color much, it's O.K... I have not done the full-on smokey eye yet....I have done a somewhat toned down version for daytime. I love the liner color, too...reminds me of MAC 's 'beauty marked' eye shadow. I think this is how 'beauty marked' should appear on your lid ( I never got the look I expected with MAC's beauty marked)...this has noticeable sparkle in it , when applied wet or dry...but it's not overwhelming sparkle , not glittery....it's just right...The base color is the prettiest slightly shimmery pink....could be used like an all-over highlighter! I used a l'oreal primer on my lids when using this palette, too ....lasted all day. Love it.

The four colors are very, very pretty and quite pigmented when swatched with fingers. However, they are very soft and crumbly, I couldn't pick up much color using a brush. Even when I loaded up my brush, I had a hard time patting the color on. Blending was very difficult, the slightest pressure and the color was blended away at the first circular motion. Tons of fallout. Made me sad, because I love the colors. I suppose I'll go find their MAC or Too Faced dupes.
