I hope I am reviewing the correct item! I picked up this quad in Ulta. As another reviewer mentioned, the shadow isn't terribly pigmented IMO. But that was exactly what I was looking for. This quad contains a white highlighter, rosey brown, soft brown (cooler-toned), and soft grey-black. The soft brown and soft black in this quad are precisely what I don't own and have always wanted. The soft brown, in particular, is the perfect natural crease color for me! I could see on darker-skinned ladies this would not show up, though. But finding a non-reddish brown has been a challenge for me. The texture of the shadows is very smooth. The highlighter in this quad isn't outstanding, some might say. It's a more natural glow than is usually found. As for the rosey brown color, it's a very natural color for my lids; it doesn't make my green-ish eyes stand out as much as I would like, but for a natural day or business look this is wonderful. All in all I would recommend this quad for people who are fairer in complexion and who would like a natural daytime look. I think you would have to use more richly-pigmented products to make a statement with this quad or to go from day to night looks.

Usually I use an e/s primer before i applying my eyeshadows. And these e/s are very pigmented. I've used most of the colors for an eotd except for the darkest color.
I've bought a color of hope quad last year and I liked the quality of these e/s.

I bought this for "the cause." It works well as a blush if I swirl all the colors together with a big blush brush. I actually did this, then used the shadows individually on my eyes for a natural day look. Surprisingly nice, and convenient so I do not need to carry 2 compacts.

I purchaed both the Hopeful Bouquet and Hopeful Spirit quads. Hopeful Bouquet is definately the better of the two. Most of the colors in the Hopeful Spirit quad don't even show up on the skin. "H" is the nicest of the four colors, a soft shimmery mauve berry color. "O" is a matte pink which I mostly use as a base. "P" is a matte cream color that doesn't show up on the skin at all. "E" is soft icy shimmery pink color. None of the colors are very pigmented. I love sheer colors but they need to show up at least a little on the skin. Packaging is great (sturdy and sleek). I won't be purchasing this quad again.

This quad has more muted colors than Hopeful Dream, but also has a wonderful matte shadow of a different color--the P is a subtle cream color, great for overall on the eyelid.
