How to Use
Rated 3.89 out of 5 stars
I liked the pigmentation on my pallette, Ambition. The glitter and matte are beautiful but the satin and metallic are hard to tell apart. The formula glides on easily with both my brushes and with my sponge applicator. The colors did smudge a bit and fade with wear but a good setting spray can prevent that. Overall a good product for the price.

I love the idea behind this eyeshadow quad: creating a monochromatic look with different textures/dimension. It's on trend! However, this quad isn't really pigmented. I received the shade 180 Ambition to review. It's hard to build up the lighter shades. The glitter and metallic shades are better in pigmentation, you get a decent amount of color in one swipe. Also, make sure you use primer because it will crease quickly on you. I appreciate how there are 15 shades to choose from, so you'll definitely find a shade that you like and the sleek, compact packaging makes it ideal for traveling and on the go! Overall, I think these are an amazing and affordable way to add the trendy monochromatic look into your makeup collection!

I use only 1 or 2 shades at a time for a quick subtle highlight on just my lids and below lower lash line. I like that there are a range of flat to different levels of glittery and it can be applied very faintly or in heavier layers. Versatile for various clothing matches and occasions. I like a "barely there" look most of the time but a touch of eye makeup makes a noticeable difference and the sparkles can be applied subtly enough for professional-environment daily use. Throwing Shade and Ambition are my most frequent, with Individualist occasionally in the mix, and I'm looking forward to trying Cause A Stir.

I bought 180 Ambition and I have a hard time getting any color to show. Using a finger helps, but that's just messy and unsanitary. The top right applies the best (again, only with finger application) but it is way too glittery for me. I was hoping to get good use out of the matte finish but I can't get that to show no matter what I try.

I wasn't very impressed with this eyeshadow palette. The colors were messy to apply and the staying power was minimal. Barely lasted a few hours before reapplication was needed. Packagi

When I put the non shimmer shade on it barley shows up, the shimmer shades do show up a bit better tho but it's just okay

I bought 130 The World is my Oyster and 120 Never Settle. These are both light shades but there was hardly any pigment. They lacked any shimmer or highlight - just very dull. Applying with fingers produced the best pay off but even then it was so faint. Some colors were chalky/dusty. Not a great formula.

No pigment. You can't put tons on the brush, nothing but a light color and shimmer. Didn't last.

It just doesn't have any color and won't transfer from the palette to a brush or a wand or a finger or your skin.

I luv this product this isn't the exact little quad i got i got the quad in the color "own it" but it looks just like this just different colors and shades!!! It's nice and pigmented and the shimmer really surprised me it's very buildable depending on the look you're going for:)

Sometimes I like to use this for a makeup no makeup look because it looks like I'm wearing nothing, but it helps to hide tired eyes and make them look more awake. That being said, if you're looking for any kind of color, this isn't it.

For an affordable drug store brand, I am impressed with this quad in this color story. Some of the complaints seemed to be for other versions. I think it's quite pigmented, blends on easily and lasts. Almay Shadow Squad Eyeshadow

I bought one of the lightest shades as a base for my eyeshadows and ended up wearing all four sections together. It was a beautiful and natural look. The only issue is this pallet is TINY. Like a matchbox. I did not expect it to be that tiny or I wouldn't have paid even the sale price. You're essentially paying a dollar for each square of shadow, and by themselves the squares are the size of dimes.

A very natural look

No wonder these are on sale. I'm so fair and the quad " the world is my oyster" didn't show up on me....the pictures are very misleading. Don't waste your coin

This product is easier on my eyelids and doesnt irritate.

It was hard to tell if this would be a matte shadow or pearl. A bit too pearl for me. I bought in store.

One of my favorite variety of shades. Almay eye shadow goes on perfect, smooth and does not crease....and stays all day. I love it!
Kristen from Waterloo Ia
Wanted a neutral color for eyeliner and this was it! Wish there was a bit of difference between the shades.

I bought "Less Is More" and "Here Goes Nothing" and I love them! Beautiful shades loves the shimmer shades and so versatile! Blends great and buildable. Colors last for me all day. Lovely undertones with the shades too.

They have good color choices. I bought this because the price was low. Although it doesnt stay on all night and they aren't strong shades. It is very light when I put it on. You can barely tell I put on eyeshadow. I do like subtle makeup but this was too subtle for me.
maryjon from undisclosed
I like the colors. I have sensitive eyes and have recently started using this daily. I like how this shadow goes on and stays. I will continue to use and may try another to compare but so far it works great for my needs

This is the best color palette for pale skinned people like me! I love it soooo much!
candisaur_ from undisclosed
I used this for under my brow shadow for the longest. It blends well and has both metallics and matte so you can choose which one to used based on other shadows you are using.

I found the pigment on these to be pretty nice and buildable! They work the best with an eyeshadow base and will last nicely. They are easy to apply with a finger for a quick and easy look! Very nice and compact as well. Almay Shadow Squadtm Eyeshadow
