Color & Pigmentation:
First shade is a light color, it's a pearly white shade with silver in it. It is the lightest shade in the quad, which would be perfect for highlighting. This shade is quite well pigmented, delivers good color pay off in one swipe, so you really don't need to pick it up many times to make it look visible.
The second shade is a pretty light purple/lavender shade. It can be used as an overall lid color. The shade is decently pigmented and need to layered about two times to get the proper color.
It's a beautiful shimmery silver color eyeshadow. The color is decently pigmented, actually the most pigmented one in the quad. It delivers bang on color just in a singe sweep, so do take care while picking up the color. You don't want to be shimmer loaded, right!
It a black shade and the darkest one in the quad. It appear to be a matte black one in the quad but it is not completely matte and have a bit of subtle sheen to it. I was expecting it to be the most pigmented one but sadly the color payoff is really poor. Even after six-seven times layering it only come like a blackish tint forget about a proper black shade.

Texture & Finish:Shade 1:
I am overall happy with the quality of the eyeshadows in this. This one has a smooth texture, no chalk-y types. It blends beautifully delivering satin finish, with no major fall out.
I liked the texture of this eye shadow as well, it nice and smooth. It has a semi matte finish with a subtle sheen to it.
Again i am happy with the texture, it's smooth to touch & fine quality that blends beautifully without any major fall out. The shade is very shimmery but fine milled that gives you a perfect satin finish.
Like the other three shades, i have no complaints when it comes to the quality and texture. It's very smooth to touch and easily blendable. The color pay off as i said is very poor. It's kind of a shadow of black, it's very sheer and gives semi matte finish with a subtle sheen.
Value for money:
2. Good choice of shadows including for creating different eyelooks
3. Most shades are decently pigmented excluding the last one
4. Smooth texture, easy to blend
5. No major fall out
