Product: 
These three palette all suffer from lack of pigmentation, which is a shame consider how good there Individualeyes Custom Compact quad palettes are for their shadows (I use the one for brown eye as a staple!). The formulas are all sheer but there are shimmer, frost, metallic and satin to be found in the shades.

Color:
Long Beach Sands (781) has a Sheer ivory colour with shimmer, a slightly sheer medium brown with a satin finish, and a sheer shimmer taupe.
Oh Soho Sweet (783) 
has a Sheer light beige colour with shimmer, a sheer frost brown, and a sheer shimmer light pink.
Streets Paved in Gold (792) 
has a Sheer light gold yellow colour with shimmer, a slightly sheer medium warm brown with a satin finish, and a slightly sheer metallic Gold/Bronze.





















Wear: I got about 2 to 3 hours wear on their own. Definitely needs a primer!

Packaging: A light wight plastic compact with a clear lid.

381B Sweet as Candy Crease, Oh Soho Sweet (783) Crease,
381B Sweet as Candy Eyelid and Oh Soho Sweet (783) Eyelid. 
Verdict:


The word is sheer here! There is some pigmentation but the is also a general lack of binders in these shadows as well. You really need a primer to get any depth of pigmentation and there are better fish in thee drugstore sea. ;)
