I really like this quad. Have mac dupes below Its a great neutral quad that works perfectly on my fair skin. Pigmentation is pretty great, applies easily, blends so well. Love using as directed or mixing them up or a single shade, its a great quad to have but ive been pleased with mostly every quad i bought from them. Around $5-6 depending where u purchase def cheaper if u wait 4 a sale.
I have labeled my quads with possible mac dupes, feel free 2 correct me
Lid: (mac kid)a cream/biege color almost a silver sheen to it
Crease: (mac da bling) a cranberry/maroon color with a slight shimmer to it but most of it doesnt translate
Browbone: (mac vanilla) a matte off white or vanilla
Outer corner: (mac brown down) a semi matte chocolate brown nice brown color
As a pale girl i have used these so much, esp this one- luv it!

This is a great quad! I love these shades and what I love most is that you can wear them with either a black or brown liner. I always find myself grabbing this. I have fair skin and the colors work really well with my skin tone. I even use the dark brown shade to color in my brows. Gotta love a multi-functional product!

For me this quad of colors just does not work. I really like the crease color, but I find that that these shadows lack pigmentation and begin to fade shortly after applying even with an eyeshadow primer. The texture is kind of powdery as well, and I end up with shimmer all under my eye after I am done applying them.
It is okay for a subtle daytime look so I do use it occasionally for work but I would not repurchase.

I love the colors of this quad and how well they complement each other. The only problem is that they aren't very pigmented and fade rather quickly, even with primer. The pink one intended as a crease color is really pretty itself but it's tricky to apply, at least for me. It can look way too shimmery and obvious if you're not careful. The other three shades have a really nice matte finish with just a hint of sparkle. It would be nice if they had toned down the pink one as well. Otherwise, I do like it for the colors and use it often. It just leaves a lot to be desired.

This quad serves best as a brightener for the eyes. Definitely not pigmented as their other quads (e.g., Natural Smokes and Chai Latte) but it does provide subtle colors for a natural/neutral look.

I liked this eyeshadow, actually.
Neither the dark pink or the light pink are particularly pigmented, but they are both very smooth. Unfortunately the beige-pink makes my eyes look like I've been crying. The dark pink, however, is gorgeous.
The white is a really shocking white - I wouldn't use it on my browbone as suggested, but on my waterline or the inner corner of my eyes it does a decent job.
The brown is just a brown.
Overall it's a pretty good natural look.

I'm sad this product isn't rated higher, it's a great little product for me! I have fair skin (MAC N3 ; Revlon PR Vanilla) and these colors compliment my brown eyes really well! There's four colors -- a bone-white shimmery color (browbone), a dark, shimmery burgundy (crease), a very light malt brown (lid), and a matte dark brown (outer-v). All together, it makes a very pretty natural eye. I pack on more to make it a nice daytime smoke. I use a nice primer with it, so it works very well for me. No creasing, no fallout, no irritation. A+ in my book. Will definitely continue to repurchase.

The colors are not very pigmented. Good for very neutral looks.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Pretty colors in the pan but will not show up at all on my medium skin, except for the dark brown one, even with a primer. Only good for a super-natural, barely-there look. The texture is pretty chalky as well.

I love the colors in this palette, and how well-coordinated they are. However, I am getting hardly any pigmentation, and some creasing even with primer. I was surprised that the MUA reviews for this product are as high as they are. I'll still continue to wear them though, I really do love the colors. Maybe I would get better results applying wet.

This is great for a neutral daytime look, although it's not the perfect quad out there.
The pigmentation isn't as amazing as Chai Latte but with the right primer certain colors colors still pop. The brown and white eyeshadows have really nice pigmentation, but the pink crease color and the light yellowish-brown lid color has poor pigmentation. The lid color barely shows off on my lid, it may work well on darker skintones but on mine it almost appears invisable. The pink crease color needs to be packed on to make the color stand out. It's pretty, but you need to put in a lot of effort to make it work. My favorite part is the highlight color, it's a beautiful shimmery white that is my ideal highlight color. The outercorner brown color I sometimes I use to fill in my brows. This quad is great if you want to appear like your wearing little makeup and you're simply enhancing your eyes. Those looking for drama for their eyes should pass on this quad.
Nice and smooth, easy to blend.
As usual the packaging and detail looks cheap and isn't very pretty to look at. That's a minor detail though. The size of the eye shadows are good, and the price is quite nice as you get 4 quality eyeshadows for $5. Also I love the name of the quad, it's adorable :)
+ Beautiful daytime look
+ Great highlight color
+ Easy to blend
+ Great price
- Poor pigmentation
- Boring/cheap package design
I love the brown and white shades, but I may just look to see if they come in singles or are included with other trios/sets/whatever, as this quad has left much to be desired. My first review for this was very positive, but I tried it again several times and my results have been lukewarm. It's great for a neutral look, but you can do better than this.

I'm in love with these quads, especially this one! The colors are soo pretty, and I usually end up using them all together, with a cream eyeshadow underneath so they last longer. Whoever designed the packaging is a genius! I love how they have each shadow labeled where it goes, and a picture on the back. It helps a lot, and it also means I don't have to go out and buy 4 different eyeshadows that match with each other. These are pretty pigmented in my opinion, and for me a little goes a long way. LOVE!

I love this quad! You can make it as natural as you want. Or you can add the dark brown to the outer V to spice it up a bit! = )

The colors do not show up on my skin even with a primer. My eyes look tried with the thin color and there's lots of fallout. I really can't believe I paid for this.

I love this eye shadow quad even though it's the only Maybelline quad that I've ever owned. I love how the back of the quad gives you directions on where to apply the eye shadow as well as the different looks you can make. I love the white and dark brown eye shadow because they work really well with my skin tone. I always use the white as my highlight and the dark brown for my outer corner. The purplish crease color is okay and the beige lid color hardly shows when I apply it, which is only the downside of the quad. But overall, I think this quad is great for everyday use esp. the brow bone and outer corner eye shadow.

This is a great quad. The instructions are useful for beginners, and the colors are so wearable!! I really like that the shades are quite sheer, but the color is very buildable. It's easy to take a lighter daytime look to a nighttime look with just the one product.

This is my favorite everyday, neutral eyeshadows. My favorite color is the lid color. It's sheer but gives a really pretty shimmer that looks good all over the lid and up to the brow bone. It polishes up the eyes without looking obvious at all. I love it. It's the only eyeshadow I have hit pan on. The white color is a bit too frosty for my taste to use as a brow highlight but it's nice in the inner corners of the eyes. I also like the light purple color. It's shimmery and not glittery so I don't experience bad fallout like with Urban Decay shadows. (You'll end up with glitter all over your cheeks.) It's very wearable but it's sheer. If you want more color payoff, use a base like Urban Decay Primer Potion or Too Faced Shadow Insurance. The brown color is matte and fairly pigmented. I'm on my second one. :)

I LOVE THIS EYE SHADOW!!!
This is my go to for almost every look i do(even with other shadow palettes) i still end up using one of the colors form this Quad. The quad has the most awsome and amazing colors. Shadows aren't to powdery and is great for beginers.
