The only color I like in this quad is the dark foresty green. The rest of the colors are a waste to me. I wish they could sell this in a single eye color to avoid buying the whole quad :(

This quad contains 4 colors: a lime green, a light gold, a forest green, and a coral, all of which contain substantial shimmer. Shiseido's eyeshadows are truly "silky" and blend beautifully on the lids. I used every color except the coral for a green and gold look and everything applied smoothly and blended well. However, the shadows could last longer. The packaging is great and very classy. I have these quads in several other colors. Shiseido shadows seems to last longer when the colors are darker, for some reason. I might try these over a colored base (I used UDPP) to intensify the color.

i purchased this quad because of the beautiful colors. however, they did not last on me at all, whatsoever. i've tried it a few times and still the same result. pretty upset because the colors are so pretty.

I cannot live without this quad. I am Hispanic with light skin and this looks fantastic with my brown eyes. The yellow is unlike any other ( I have tried to find it solo to no avail, if you know of something similar please let me know ) I have used the forest green for everything from smoky eye to eyeliner wet and dry. The texture is amazing. Check out my profile pic to see the forest green on me . The only down side is that I used the Forrest green and yellow much more often then the other two so I have a 3-4 compacts of the other 2 colors.. wish I could get 2 I use more often by themselves ( again if you know where I can get something similar I would appreciate the info )..

The colors work well with warm complexions. It blends naturally with yellow undertones. The colors in this quad are yellow, light green, dark green, and coral. i like to use each color on its own with lots of eyeliner. The texture is very soft, almost moussey or creamy but it's definitely powder. It's easy to apply and I'm convinced that it has some skin care benefits for my lids. The only reason why I wouldn't buy this again is because I don't like the packaging, it's a bit bulky and I have so many other eyeshadow palettes.

Pretty colours on the palette but they didn't pop on my fair skin the way I would have liked them to.

Flora and Fauna Q3 is overall a nice eye shadow palette. The colors are pretty! Too bad it does not measure up quality-wise.
The quad consists of a yellow, pale spring green, golden pink and a forest green e/s with gold shimmer in it. The darkest color, the forest green, can be used as crease color or wet as e/l. The yellow and the green color look very similar once applied on the lid. It is difficult to see much difference when comparing the colors. I wish the pink color was a bit more pigmented.
Really stunning colors all of them. The colors go very well together.
They are silky in the texture. However, I wish they were a bit more pigmented. The staying power is okay, not more. I wish they were more like Stila and Shu Uemura e/s when it comes to the texture and staying power. I will not replace this palette when I have used it up.
For reference: I'm a pale blonde with blue eyes.

I paid aboout 55.40 USD(in my YTL currency) and yes this is crazy!Our prices are crazy because of the taxes.and yes colours are pretty but not enought amount of mu for what I pay...I mean the palette is small and I still dont use it much(I always love my mac&stila eyeshadows everyday).And the texture is not good enough for my like.It fades off so easy when I dont use UDPP.I really want it to work on me or I will have to put it to somewhere that I wont never use and see.A bit waste of my money.

I SO wanted to love these shadows. The colors are beautiful but did not show up on me at all. Also the shadows are very soft in texture and flake easily when using a brush.

Normally, I would *never* pay US$30 for .08 oz. TOTAL of eyeshadow... but I had a Sephora gift card to blow and this was really the prettiest e/s palette in the whole store, esp. for a warm-toned PPP brunette with brown eyes. I love the combination of ultra-shimmery yellow, peach, olive, and spring green. The texture is super-creamy and very smooth to apply. You do need an e/s base with these, as they contain mineral oil as the second ingredient and will crease up quickly. I really enjoyed the "warm sunset" effect of wearing all the colors together, and this is a fun palette to play around with. That said, I would never pay $30 to replace it when I could find the same shades separately at the drugstore in much larger amounts. You're really paying for the novelty of having all these shades together in one pan, looking super-cute and inviting.

A splurge item for me. I tried a zillion eyeshadows at Sephora with my sister's supervision; she gasped when I applied this quad. All four colors are versatile for me (fair skin, a bit freckled, highlighted brown hair, yellow-green eyes) and flatter my eyes. The texture is superior.

After nearly a year of neglect, I'm finally starting to love this quad. I purchased just for the gorgeous pastel pistachio green; not usually a fan of quads, felt I had wasted my money. The sublime silky texture really surprised me, as did the rest of the luscious, ripe-for-spring colors. The pale icy lemon yellow really brightens and wakes up my eyes, even on light to no makeup days. Just the right amount of shimmer for a wash, it looks fab with the green blended into the outer corner. The rosy gold is another bright and feminine shade that stays clean and doesn't turn into sickly pink eye. For me the deep hunter/olive green is the odd-man-out in the quad. Just ok as a liner, it does make an interesting muted green smokey eye, but to me it doesn't quite work with the other colors. The compact opens easily and closes with a nice substantial click, but as usual, I can do without the 2 dinky applicators. But this is merely a pet peeve of mine and hardly worth mentioning.

What a great quad! Not that pricey, either, when you consider that you're paying only $9 per shadow. Quad includes a dark smoky green, pale yellow gold, grass green and a golden pink. Smooth, even application that feels like velvet going on.

Great colors, great price, elegant packaging this is such a great product the colors are very complimentary to each other..I love it...usually shiseido's cosmetics line is very "old" for me but not this..this is young and fresh..not too shimmery either.

Shiseido's quads for spring 2004 are just excellent. I bought all 3 sets! Lovely shimmery colors, creamy shades. Complete with brush and sponge applicators. Lux to use. This set has a spring green and yellow!

Love this quad! Green is definitely the color of this spring, so I plan on using this every day. A great value for 4 lovely colors, applicators, chic compact + mirror.
