I was curious about this little mini palette after seeing a 4.3 rating on MakeUpAlley for a product that costs only $1.  This palette also gets rave reviews by well known beauty gurus on YouTube.  I saw this at Target, and thought to myself, "Well for one buck, what do I have to lose?"  Let's start off with the pigmentation and formula of each shade (from left to right).  The first shade is an ivory/vanilla color with some sparkle, this shade is really chalky/powdery.  I found that this shade was the hardest to swatch, which is kind of disappointing since I'm pretty tan and lighter colors usually swatch on my skin without any difficulty.  But seeing as it will likely be used in either the inner tear duct/brow highlight I can cut it some slack.  The second color is a cranberry/plum color, it has some shimmer to it.  This one actually swatched pretty well.  Still not as creamy or pigmented I would like it to be, but I think it definitely is good enough.  The third color is a matte charcoal/slate color with some navy undertones.  This color was the 2nd hardest to swatch, it's not chalky, but it's also not very pigmented, so that was kind of a diappointment since this is the shade that is supposed to "define" your eye.  The last shade is my favorite in this quad, and is a taupe color, it's creamy, pigmented, swatches well, and has a frost finish.  This shade alone is worth the one buck I spent.  I definitely don't consider it a "holy grail" eye shadow, but it does the job that it needs to do. I think this is a great eye shadow palette if you're on a budget and want something that can create "day 2 night" looks.  I can also see it working out really well if you forgot your eye shadow or something on a trip (always find myself forgetting makeup items when visiting my parents), or if you're looking for a cheap way to perk up your eyes after work and can't get home to your makeup bag.  Otherwise, I think that you could fork out a couple extra bucks for another cheap eye shadow palette from the drugstore
