Very pretty colors but lasting power is quite terrible...even when I use a primer.
Its good for when I'll only be out for a couple hours and need a strong base color for my shadow.
Would not repurchase, there's better stuff out there.

...This particular Revlon creme shadow quad, Moonlit Jewels, is a georgeous collection of four creme shadows: a champagne, mauvish plum, green-teal, and a sapphire blue...all georgeous and slighly metallic when applied...When I first tested these colors out on my hand, they were much more pigmented and vibrant than I was expecting. Perhaps, I just had bad experiences with other d/s creme shadows being very very sheer and hard to layer (i.e Sonia Kashuk). With Moonlit Jewels, one swipe and they are very apparent and well pigmented. The swatch pic I have included is with one layer applied with finger....When I tested them on my eyelid, I was very happy with the results. These shadows glide on remarkably smoothly and evenly...The champagne shades is the most versatile to mix. The green and blue shades are amazingly unique and dynamic...and they all compliment brown eyes!! The only downfall was the lasting power-and the lack of...to be expected with creme shadows....I then used UDPP, a HG for me, and they lasted a good amount of time, although not as vibrant at the end of the day....but it only needs a light touch up to bring the colors back to life... I picked this up RV of around $5USD, but had a sale at my local HEB and snagged this under $2USD...very happy about that...I would say that I would repurchase other colors ( I have my eye on the Pink Petal quad) because these are very fun to experiment with the colors are beautiful and sooo rich!

I bought this knowing ahead of time that they would probably crease pretty quickly on my oily eyelids. However, it was on sale so I decided to give it a try. The colors , when applied, were a fair amount more sheer than in the package itself. I thought that I could use it as a colored base. As a base for powder e/s, it worked pretty well until I looked in the mirror about an hour after I applied it.... and it was already creasing big-time. I thought maybe it was just me (I tend to crease like crazy, even with e/s base) but apparently not. I will not be repurchasing.

The blue, green, golden and bronze colours in this 4pan shadow bpx caught my eyes. This was the first creme shadow i bought.
Great colours, stay true on my asian skin. Never crease, smooth, buildable, long lasting and shimmery. Theu are perfect either for day or night depending on application.
I am already half way through. Will definitely buy again. Revlon eye shadows are the best i have used to date.

I like this, and the colors are really good to go from day-to-night, but the colors fade so easily and so quickly. I would buy it again, but only because the colors are so pretty and versatile.

I love this product. It stays on really well and the colors are just beautiful. I like that I can use it as a gel*ish liner as well as a shadow. The price is perfect and you certainly get your money's worth with this.

I love these colors! These eye shadows are easy to blend, they are not greasy or smell weird. They go on sheer, but you can layer on the color if you like more intense looks. I like to use the gold and brown together or the blue and emerald green together. They make my dark brown eyes "pop". I like that the package is clear so you can look at the colors, however, I had a hard time opening the quad, the only way I could open it was taking the lid off. But it's easy to put back on, so the shadows won't dry or anything.

I picked this up this morning on impulse because I didn't feel like actually doing my makeup before work. I thought that a quick swipe with these and I'd be set. The Moonlit Jewels creme shadow quad comes with a taupe, bronze, blue and green shadow. All of the colors are beautiful in the package, but are extremely sheer when put on. Within minutes of putting these on, they were completely creased and didn't feel like they had ever really dried. Needless to say, I went to work without eyeshadow and these went on my swap list. I think I'll just stick to my powder shadow from now on. The package is nice, but could use a mirror or applicator to be even better. Wouldn't repurchase.

One thing I love about the Illuminance quads is that their names match their colors so well. This one I particularly like: the "Moonlit jewels" are emerald, sapphire, garnet, and topaz. The colors are all sheer and shimmery and glittering, like all the Illuminance colors. I like the gold and the dark red best, even though I bought this quad for the blue (I needed it for a play). The blue was great for the play, but blues and greens look somewhat wierd with my blue eyes. The creasing was a bit of a problem, but easily solved by swiping one finger across my eyelid once an hour or so. Anyway, you expect creasing with a creme shadow. Overall? A great product, like all its sisters, and one I would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.

Moonlit Jewels is sort of an unsual combo of shadow shades, with metallic blue/green paired with a beige & brown. This one I picked up on impulse based solely on the color, even though I do own several Creme Shadow Quads and have had good experiences with them. As nice as this combo, I probably won't repurchase, as I rarely find myself picking this up, either because I have other neutral shades similar to the brown pairs, or I don't find an occasion to use the green & blue. Fun quad though.

OK, I love this product. It is so fun and easy to use and the colors look beautiful. This product works perfectly into my quick morning makeup regiment. And the price is great. I love the way this eyeshadow gleams, but it is subtle enough to wear during the day. I find that is creases a little after it is on for about five hours, but that is nothing a few swips with my finger can't fix. I enjoyed this product so much, I just went a bought more! For nighttime, I use it in conjunction with powder eyeshadows for a more dramatic look. Revlon has really come out with some great products for a reasonable price. Why spend ridiculous amounts at Sephora when there are better products at the local CVS....
UPDATE: Ok, been using this for a while now. And while I love the colors and the feel of this product, the staying power just isn't up to par. When I go out at night I need my makeup to last. I just went and bought MAC paints. I will let you know how that goes.

i purchased this quad b/c i thought the colours were absolutely beautiful... and they are! This quad came with a shimmery light blue, mermaid-green, light bronze, and copper e/s. Gorgeous in the pan... but i found that the colours didn't stay true on my eyelids. The colours were so sheer, that I had to use a fair amount to make them show up even the slightest bit. Also, I have never had problems with any of my shadows creasing, but within minutes of applying, I had creases everywhere. I had to apply a layer of powder e/s, just to set the colours, and even THAT didn't stop them from creasing. What a disappointment. Sure the colours are pretty in the pan... but that's where they should stay.

Love the colors and the ease with which this product goes on. BUT! It creases like mad on me. Back to benefitcosmetics' creme shadows I go - more expensive but they stay put.
