What it is - four mineralized complimentary fall eye shadows.
- - -
Pros - product comes with four eye shadows - sort of a gold highlight / a copper / a shade the color of pumpkins / a chocolate colored shade. As usual great color pay off. shades do not fade or wear off during the day. Because this product comes with four shades there are plenty of different combinations to create. very pigmented.
- - -
Cons - the pumpkin colored shade doesn't seem to be as pigmented as the other colors. Still a pretty color but definitely needs to be built up. I think it could have done with a little less shimmer but oh well.
- - -
Overall - I think of this as the urban decay naked palette on the go. It can easily be thrown in a purse or taken on trips. Very flattering colors (especially for brown or blue eyes).
Easy to blend with one another and great for building with other colors. I wish they would come out with just the copper color. I would definitely buy that. This product is definitely worth owning.

My favorite MAC quad yet! Bought 3 backups! This is awesome to keep in your purse, you have 4 colors... it's really all you need for day or a night look. Compact. And easy to use. Very convenient.

This is a really great all in one compact (2 lid colors, 1 crease color, and 1 brow color). My only complaint is that the colors aren't that intense but the mineralize collection is suppose to give the option of wetting the color for more intensity or keeping it dry for a more sheer effect. Either way, it's still a great product.

This is a very unique MES quad that is perfect for the fall. The colors are gorgeous and go very well together making it fairly easy for one to create a look.The shadows are also very easy to blend. Most of the colors are very pigmented except for the orange. The orange is very sheer once applied however I find that using it with MAC's shadestick in corn(discont'd) as a base allows the color to show up a lot better.
This MES also has a lot of fall out that is very annoying. The fallout and the pigmentation of the orange are what kept me from giving this cute lil quad 4 lippies instead of 5 but I would still rebuy.

I love this, but the highlight color is a bit too glittery for me, so I pair this with "Blanc Type" eyeshadow. It just makes the glittery-ness of the other shadows incorperate better. It blends like no tomorrow because it's mineralized and really really pigmented believe me. It has that nice metallic sheen for that bronze color which is great for a crease color or lid color. The dark brown is really pigmented so a little goes a long way for the outer V color.

This set of colors works really well with my blue eyes. I bought this because I loved the orange shade but I find that it's the least pigmented, which makes me a little sad. I either have to build it up or use and orange or white base to make it pop out more (or just apply over a primer and get a more subtle shading). However, the rest of the quad is very nice. The gold shade is very glittery and chunky but I just dust off any fallout. The copper and brown colors are gorgeous and I can mix them with other shadows that I have.

This is my first mineralize item from MAC and I love it. The colours are: pale gold, gold, orange and a copper brown. Now from doing swatches on my hand I had determined that the colours were very glittery and it would take some finesse to stop the fallout. The first thing to do is apply some sort of primer to the lid, I personally use concealer. The next step is very important, and that's selecting the right brush. I know the first instinct is to go for a brush that is going to densely pack it on, as to minimize fallout, but no that does the opposite actually, so just put down the MAC 239, even though I love that brush, it is not your friend with this eyeshadow, instead pick up the MAC 217 brush. It deposits the right amount of colour on the lid with no fallout. The colours go on nicely pigmented and look more like the veluxe pearl shadows. The colours are buildable and they blend really well. It's definately a must have for all occassions.

I expected to love the orange color most - to my surprise, it has poor pay-off. I preferred the copper so much more!
But the copper. WOW. The most amazing copper I have ever tried on. Rich, smooth, WONDERFUL.
I first put on the orange on my lids and outer corners of the eye and was non-wowed. Surprising, as I am PPP and thought they would all show beautifully. Then, I played with the copper one, and it is beau-ti-ful! So, on with that in the crease.
Then - big mistage - I tried the palest color, gold. I should have known better, having read the reviews here. It was kind of chalky, with huge glitters that dropped on my cheeks immediately. I applied in the inner eye + under brow. Well, looks blechh, and the fall out was disgusting.
Then I applied Molten Sol as eye liner. Wow.
In the car, I asked hubby if my eyes looked blue - he looked at me, was really shocked and asked me what have you DONE? My eyes looked wonderful, SO BLUE!
I hated the glitter which I could not get off my face. I hate the gold color so much I even considered scraping it off the container. The only reason I didnīt is I was afraid the other colors would start crumbling and fall off as well.
So, my eye makeup looked amazing, thanks to the copper and Molten Sol. I would not re-purchase, but would def purchase a full-size copper in that exact shade!

The colours in this quad are stunning !! I'm actually wearing them today and received quite a few compliments. I have dark brown eyes and dark brown hair (and I'm tanned). The MA was wearing this eyeshadow (also dark eyes and dark hair) and her eyes looked amazing....she had a very natural, glowing look and that was it...hook, line and sinker for me. Pigmentation and colour payoff are very good. It's LE so pick one up soon. You won't regret it.

In love! Okay let's start with the pumpkin orange color, It's amazing! Richly pigmented, smooth, and has the right amount of shimmer.
The copper color is as beautiful, the dark brown color is perfect for the crease. The light gold has a bit fall out, but it doesn't bother me! I don't have anything like it, so it's A okay in my book. Actually it's sort of a more shimmery version of Retrospeck eyeshadow, in my opinion.
The look I did today with this quad:
The pumpkin orange color all over my lid, up to my crease.
The copper color and dark brown blended into my crease, and
then the rich gold color applied wet on my inner corners.
Then I used the dark brown on my lower-lash line.
I love this look! About 20 dollars for 4 shadows! Can't beat that!

The colors make my blue eyes really pop. It are very pigmented colors

I was a little nervous buying this after reading everyones reviews, but I loved the colors and decided to try it for myself. Boy am I happy I did! This eyeshadow is beautiful on!! I did wet my brush before I applied the lightest color and still had a few fallouts. So now when I use this quad I will do my eyes before my other makeup. All in all, the colors are great and the staying power is pretty good. Perfect natural look!!

I was not sure if I wanted to buy this quad or not.. I heard that the pigmentation sucked and you had to use fix + with them.. so I was iffy.. but i saw someone do a tutorial on youtube and I had to have this one.. I wore this to the husbands company picnic the lightest color on the lid with fix + and the gold in the crease.. and I loved it and so did my husband.. I have not dared to try it with out fix + but maybe I will....
Love it.. I was thinking about buying a back up... because I love the combo i had on my eyes.. it was a perfect summer look.

These colors are gorgeous! I mainly wanted it for the orange shade, but I love them all. These are shimmery and does have some fallout. The lightest color has the worst fallout. I pair Ricepaper with this, and it works beautifully, I find if you use all the colors at one time it can be to much shimmer going on. All these colors are nicely pigmented. It is LE.

None of these quads are worth the money. They totally lack in pigmentation. I bought all 6 (Girlish Romp, Odd Bits, Assemblage, Eccentricity, Natural Flare, Fashion Patch) and returned each of them for this reason...not a happy camper with these!

From the Colour Craft collection, these 4 color quads are such a steal for 19.50! It's colors are: Copper, Yellow orange, Rich gold, and Dirty brown. This is the best one for everyday wear from this collection. It makes a wonderful neutral palette!! Some say these quads are pigmented but with a good base and even fix+ they will last! If you love shimmer and are looking to buy just ONE thing from this collection, this is it!!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Dark Hair: Black Eyes: Black
This is an absolute excellent product. Very shimmery! It will make a perfect neutral or work appropriate look! This was my first time I have purchased a MAC mineralized eyeshadow, and I am loving it so far. The light gold color does have a "chunky" texture. Use Fix+ or a mixing medium to apply!

These quads came out with the MAC Colour Craft Collection. I am an NC35-NC40, with brown eyes and olive complexion. I am in LOVE with these eyeshadows. They are so shimmery and pretty! it comes with a medium gold with gold shimmer, orange with shimmer, a bronze with shimmer, and dark brown with gold shimmer. I put bare study pp underneath and the colors come even more vibrant :) If you are a fan of shimmery eyeshadows, i highly recommend this quad.
