Super loverly colors. The pink softens my eyes, and the dark green color is really lovely. It takes a little skill to properly apply because of the dryness of the formula (you don't swipe it on but you pack it on with your fingers/brush). I use my Sigma E55 to pack on the color and my E70 for the crease, and my E20 to pack on color on my lower lash line. Swiping on the color does not work well because of the formula is dry, patting it on works better to pack on the color. I finish my look with the E25 blending brush to soften any harsh lines.
Revlon e/s are not known to be super pigmented, but that is what I love about because their e/s are very work appropriate. You can wear smokey eye without looking like you're going to a party because the finish is satin/sheer, but buildable. Great for those who love the natural/subtle look.
I've read reviews complaining about the staying power, but I have gotten 12 hours from these eyeshadows (I have 7 of the quads) and I wear glasses too! It did great from 8 am to 8 pm with a little creasing after because I got out of the office and got sweaty. I don't have a primer, but I use my Revlon colorstay active light foundation on my lids before packing on the e/s.
How an eyeshadow performs is learning how to work with its formula. There is a reason why the manufacturer chose its fromula to be dry or buttery or wet/gel, so learning to properly work with the formula will give you the best results :)

Beautiful colors that go well together and look great on. However, the colors are not very pigmented and so dry and powder, they don't apply well. Now, that said, I used a couple of different kind of brushes trying to get a nice, denser and more even application and the funny thing is that what I used and got the best application with was the little spongey brush this palette comes with! Otherwise, these are so powdery that using a makeup brush works up so much loose powder that you lose a lot of product. Nice colors but quality, not so great. I remember these having a much better formula. No recommendation for these from me.
