Clinique All About Shadow Quad

My mum gifted me this sleek Clinique All About Shadow Quad as one of my Christmas presents and having never tried Clinique eyeshadows before I was super excited to get my hands on it. First things first the packaging is really gorgeous & the size is just perfect. I'm not a fan of the brushes that come along with it, but let's face it personally I just don't enjoy those foam applicators (does anyone ever use them?!). Now onto the actual shades and their formula…

The shades in this particular palette named 'Going Steady' are right up my street & I just love love love that second purple shade, it's just stunning. Unfortunately the quality of these shades is where I am let down, as personally they are not up to scratch especially for the price of £28. They are not as pigmented as I would have liked them to be and even for the swatches below I had to make sure I really  packed on the product for the colours to really come up. Saying that the eyeshadows are soft & buttery making them very easy to blend, especially if you're going for a smokey eye in particular. But for me pigmentation is key and I have to admit that I am a bit let down by this palette. I will still try to get use of it, especially for that gorgeous purple shade but it will most likely be used with MAC Fix + for extra intensity. 

I don't like having disappointing reviews, but sadly this just isn't a winner in my eyes. Have any of you tried these eyeshadow palettes before?
