Lime Crime have introduced two new 'Plushies Quads'; pressed pigment quads, which contain matte eyeshadow shades in a diffused & buildable formula. The Fresh Squeezed quad contains; Jackfruit (canary yellow), Orange Juice (carrot orange), Mango (muted orange) an d Dragon Fruit (bright magenta).

This is a fairly easy palette to review; all of the shades feel the same, blend the same and wear the same. They're all very creamy so apply very smoothly and evenly, they all blend out easily and I've had zero creasing or colour fade [I don't use primer]. I have deepset eyes and have had very zero transfer. There is some kick-up when I dip my brushes into the pans, but that is something that never really bothers me as long as the shadows apply and perform well, which these do.

It takes some building to get the shades to match up to their pan appearance, but they all do reach the pan-shade without any difficulty. This is where I want to defend the quad a bit; these quads have a different formula to the brand's Venus eyeshadows, so obviously won't perform the same way. I understand why some people would not want to bother with shadows that need building up, but that is how they are meant to be and it was public information before the palette was released - it's not some kind of fault with the product. Personally I'm a big fan of this kind of formulation; as you can get the shades to look completely different, so it's like getting a new 12-pan palette, rather then a quad.

Fresh Squeezed is a quad so there are only four shades, but the pricing is reasonable enough to excuse this, especially considering the awesome product quality [each pan is 1.67g]. The powders are a pleasure to work with; so I'd rebuy this in a heartbeat if I lost it. The only downside for me is that the shades in Fresh Squeezed are ones that I'll probably only wear during spring/summer, but that downside is personal taste, rather then product quality. I highly recommend this palette to people who don't mind using multiple palettes for one look to make it more of a "all rounder".
