This is a nice, basic quad. Unfortunately, none of the colors are super special, and I have a lot of similar shades, but if you dont, then it would be great to own. The eyeshadows itself are nicely pigmented and blend well. They have an almost buttery texture to them. Right now I am wearing the light champagne color as a wash and under brows, darkest shade wet as a liner and slightly smudged under outer 1/3 of lower lashes, and the pink used wet all over lids. It's a fresh, pretty, no brainer look. I wouldn't repurchase, simply because I own a lot of similar colors.

Of the three Revlon quads I own (the other two are browns and shimmery greys) this is the one I reach for the most often. I really like the black-ish green shade on my brown eyes for lining and for smoky eyes. The green shade is very pretty as well. The pink shade is nice, but nothing special for me. THe only weakness is the yellowish shade since it seems a bit powdery to me. Overall, the quad is definitely worth a try.

What beautiful colours! At first I was a bit doubtful, as the colours (light yellow, pink, sage green and black/charcoal) are all either warm and/or bright, and my cool toned PPP/LLL skin cannot handle either. However, these blend in beautifully. The black is fabulous as an wet or dry eyeliner, and the green and pink have got the perfect pigmentation consistency - not too little, but not too much either. As many people here, I mostly use the yellow shade as a highlighter on my brow. By the way, as far as foam applicators go, I think the one included is one of the best, with a wide end and a narrow one. Would definitely repurchase, but will probably never run out, as you only need a little!

The colors are pretty and the price SEEMS like it's good but the quality isn't great and therefore I think for the price you could get much more for your money(with Milani or even Jane). The pigmentation on most of the colors pretty much sucks and the texture is on the chalky side and not particularly easy to blend. I'm not a huge fan of Revlon and this quad didn't redeem the brand in my eyes.

The only thing I use from this quad are the white and black shades. The pink and green are so sheer and even when wet, do not show up on my NC20 skin. The black is great for a smokey eye though, and the white a good all over lid color or browbone highlighter.

Revlon Wet/Dry are among the best low-end eyeshadows on the current market. I find this quad contains lovely springtime shades (esp. love the pale pink and mint green!) for everyday wear, and are pigmented enough to show up on my NC20 skintone without having to apply the shades wet. Long lasting, silky smooth to apply and blend, and never creases.

I always end up buying Revlon quads when there are bright (experimental, for me) colors I want to try but aren't sure will work out for me. That said, the colors are pretty in the pan. Unfortunately, like most Revlon eyeshadows (though not the new 12-hour Colorstay ones, and yes, I always use a base), the color does not show up after application. I end up having to use a lot to get some color payoff, and then it all migrates into my crease, fading except for the line of yucky, colored gunk. The colors were cute in this quad, but they have no staying power for me and was more trouble than it was worth.

These colors combined are a little too wild for me...I know, they aren't THAT wild, but I'm a fairly neutral/natural person (very PPP, cool toned by the way). Regardless, the colors are very pretty so I bought it anyway. Let me say first of all that the pink eyeshadow in this quad is THE BEST pink eyeshadow I have EVER owned. Many pink eyeshadows I have owned before either looked more white on me or made me look sick. The green is also very nice. The beige I just use from my crease to my eyebrow, and I use the dark charcoal color as a liner. The quality of these eyeshadows are amazing...for the price (about $5.49 at Target in central NJ), they can't be beat. They last a long time, have very good pigmentation, and on me personally they do show up well dry (but better wet). I will most likely repurchase this quad when I run out. These seem like they would be especially great for spring/summer.

This is a nice quad, but I rated it a 4 because the colors are rather generic. There's a golden cream, golden pink, sage green, and navy. The colors look great together--- I tend to wear the cream as a wash, pink on lid, green in crease, and navy in outer "V". It's a pretty look, but just not something I find myself wearing very often. I also find that some Revlon e/s (including this quad!) tend to fade rather fast, even when used wet and with a good base. I can't say I'd repurchase, but with 140+ e/s, who really needs to? *lol* :) EDIT 8/17/04: I've decided I have other shades that are similar that I like better, so I'm giving this away.

This is by far my fave Revlon wet/dry quad...all the colors are bright and beuatiful!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Dry Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
yay! after going through a bunch of stores i finally found it!! i think i've found my HG summer quad.. It's pigmented enough to justify repurchase and the price isn't too too bad. my only gripes are that they don't show up that well dry, the colors fade faster than i would like (and when they do, they all look the same color) and they're a little too soft. (it took me about a week and 5 stores to find one of this quad that WASN'T smashed) oh and the packaging looks so classy and expensive but it wasn't, it was only $6!
the green is really pretty, it's my favorite color in the quad. when wet, it has this really pretty metallic sheen to it that brightens up my eyes. the pink is pretty but i wish it was a bit brighter/darker and the gold shimmer was more evident, so it would be more distinguished from the creamy shade. the cream color i find hardest to use b/c it looks quite a bit like the pink shade on the lid but if i apply another pinkish-gold shade like milani illusion (over the pink color) they're more distinguishable! the black, i use to line. the applicator is really nice! i like the slim end to line with, it makes a nice, smudgy line that looks smoky! whew.. that was quite a bit of typing!
i can't believe i actually debated whether to buy this or not! i'm so glad i did decide to buy it!
would definitely repurchase

I can't believe how long I've ignored this quad. I heard & read about it here on the boards but never thought much of it when I'd see it in the stores. When the chance came to swap for it I decided to go for it. I'm glad I did! It doesn't look like much in the pan but once I put the colors on my hand to test it out, I was stunned that they were so shimmery/pearly. What a happy surprise because that's the sort of e/s I love! I won't bother to describe the colors, that's already been done. But I will say that this quad is very nicely pigmented & the shadow just glides over my eyelids. In fact, I like this much better than Chanel's Nymphea quad, which has similar colors. You just couldn't see them when I applied them (what a waste). This is definitely a better quad all the way around for a mere fraction of the cost. Update: I'm removing a lippie because it just doesn't stay long on my eyelids. But the colors are gorgeous!

OK, so I end up hardly ever wearing eye shadow because I have oily lids and most e/s doesn't stay put. However, after spying this quad in the store and having my friend who was with me say it was her favorite, I went ahead and bought it but didn't have very high hopes. Well, I must say, I have been pleasantly surprised so far! The four colors are very pretty (pink, champagne, green, "black") and had very good staying power on me today. I haven't tried these shadows wet yet, and I'm sure they'll be great seeing as I like them dry so much! I would definitely recommend this quad, and I will be trying other Revlon shadows (I do believe these were my firsts!) :)
This quad cost around $6 USD.

I had been looking forward to getting this eyeshadow quad for a long time. I'm so glad I got it. It has a champagne color that's great as a highlighter, a lovely pink shade that complements their other quads perfectly, a moss like green color that looks amazing wet or dry and a charcoal black that is perfect. I really like Revlon eyeshadows, I have another quad which is really popular, that has all the pink shades. The colors are really versatile, you can mix and match and the great thing is that it's a no fuss product. I would definitely repurchase.

I found this in the 90% off cart in CVS. So for 62 cents how could I pass this up. I thought for the price I'd give it a try never expecting to really like it. This quad is very pretty. Even the pink shade is wearable. My favorite is the sage green shade that makes my brown eyes look great. Can't figure out why this lovely quad was so drastically reduced. I'd buy it even at regular price.

I love this quad! It is beautiful. I use this more often than any other eye shadow-- it is perfect for my PPP blue-eyed, dark blonde coloring. I especially love the sage green and golden peachy-pink shades. The darkest color makes a great liner, too. The champagne shade is a nice highlighter, and I use it with other shadows, too. This is great, and I only paid $5. Will definitely repurchase, and I'm gonna check out some more revlon e/s, cuz this has great staying power!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Cool Hair: Red, Curly, Coarse Eyes: Green
This is a fabulous eyeshadow quad for cool skintones. The colors are very flattering and can be layered for a more dramatic look. The staying power is great- it only creased ever so slightly after about 12 hours on my oily lids. I can't wait to try more of these quads !!!

Revlon is my fav e/s brand for long lasting and crease-resisting power (compared with milani, jane, prestige, maybelline, etc). Her e/s is also known (by me :P) for giving a subtle sheen and classy finish.
The quad In The Garden caught my eyes in drugstore but I didn't break down and buy it until a MUAer posted her pic wearing this. Purely lovely! I love the green and the dark-almost black- color. I tried to replicate the look with my other greens and pinks, but this quad's combination has its own unique result.

I love this quad, it's my very first eyeshadow of any kind from Revlon. Previously, I had been using an eyeshadow duo from Clinique which I was very umimpressed with it's staying power- it only lasted like 2 hours. So, disappointed with how poor of a performance this high end eyeshadow had, I wasn't expecting anything spectacular from a drugstore eyeshadow. I was first drawn to it because the colors looked so creamy and pretty, and i thought it was cool that it was a wet/dry shadow. I find that this quad has amazing staying power, and goes on so rich and creamy. Great pigmentation! Definetly will repurchase this one and want to purchase the other quads. Go out and get one!
update After using them for awhile, and trying other brands, I find that the staying power is about average. But, pretty good for drugstore brand.
