when i got this, i really did not know it was a cream shadow. But well... it is. But I really love this! especially the packaging, and the colors! It has really nice texture, and looks great when you put it on. I recommend putting a more thick layer, and set it with a shimmery shadow, it's gonna look great, and last longer. But don't wear this alone, it creases like crazy and will be gone after an hour or two, and when you wear it as a base, also don't just put a thin layer. It's gonna look like glitter, and crease, and your shadows will be gone.
first things first, this is VERY DRY. I mean... wow, talk about drying lipstick. this is very very drying. It has no moisture in it at all. So when you put this on your lips, it looks like paint, except, dried out paint. Now i fixed this problem by pairing a lip gloss along with it. I actually like this shade, its a very nude shade, now if you are thinking, oh god, that would probably look weird... well you are right. It does look really strange, like you are starving to death, or sick. but i still use this shade, because along with a little bit darker color of lip gloss, it goes nicely with a smokey eye. But bottom line, if you want a nude color... don't get this, get one that is going to be more moisturizing.

I went to the drugstore to pick out a copper-ish / bronzy shadow since i don't have a shade that is like that. When i saw this quad the gold color immediately caught me, because i am obsessed with golden shades, and the light color too. And it has a copper ish color! i mean how great! After i tried it, i am really impressed! i've owned other covergirl quads, they are just ok. But this one is really really great! All the colors are smooth and pigmented nicely. The lightest color surprisingly is too! i mean it's really hard to find a light color that is really gonna show up on my skin! The gold color is good, and the copper color is also great! the deep brown is very nice also. I mean for the price, you are getting 4 very nice shadows. I think it's worth it if you are looking for cheap, and useful shadows, you can wear these everyday, or use them for night looks, you can do anything!

This is my first review!!! yay! haha anyway. I got this quad at the CCO, for only 24.50! which is a great deal for Mac products. And i love love love these colors! Especially Smudged Violet, it is so very unique, and build-able to make more intense or just a settle, muted color. Deep Truth is a SUPER gorgeous shade of blue, which you can make really intense or just a thin layer of color. It's very unique too, it shows up rather black, but has a blue sheen, it's really pretty, shadowy lady is really nice too, it's a good, not shimmery dark purple that is very pigmented. The only color i do not like is Light Falls, the lightest pink in this quad. I don't like the texture, and it's not as pigmented as it could be. Plus maybe my skintone is a little darker, it just blends away, like nothing's there. But overall i love the other 3 colors, and this quad is great, =) I won't buy it again though, just because if i were out of these shadows i would want to try something new =)
