These quads are pretty nice. They have great pigmentation, which is something I need. The quads are small so they will fit into your purse to have anytime for touch-ups. They come with a tiny applicator that no one would use. The one thing I look for in an eyeshadow is if it blends well. These eyeshadows definitely do that. They blend really well, and if you do not use an eyelid primer, they will blend together. They are very soft and creamy, so if you have an hooded eye like me, they might blend together anyway. Even though they are soft, they still are not the best quality. They do not last very long, maybe 4 hours, and if you move around a lot, cut those hours in half.
I would like for these quads to have at least one matte shade. They are all shimmer, and mature women tend to stay away from shimmer eyeshadows. Also, the colors are a lot more opaque when applied to the skin, so be careful. On a scale of one to ten, I would rate this a 4, and that's not a good enough rating for the price, which runs about six bucks at Wal-Mart. If you don't mind spending that money, then these would be decent for everyday wear.
