These eyeshadow fall under 4 finishes matte, satin, pearl, and shimmer.
The pearl and shimmer shades have great colour payoff but are powdery.
The satin shades are sheer but build-able.
The 1 matte shade however, is chalky in texture and dry when trying to apply.
Row 1 shade 1 - is a light ivory pearl white with a more satin-matte texture.
Row 1 shade 2 - Is a light blue base pink with a pearl finish.
Row 1 shade 3 - is a pale champagne nude with a pearl finish.
Row 1 shade 4 - is a light dusty rosy nude with a matte finish. Sheer and powdery.
Row 1 shade 5 - is a light gold/bronze with a shimmer finish.
Row 1 shade 6 - is a bright rusty rose pink with a shimmer finish.
Row 2 shade 1 - is a pale taupe grey with a shimmer finish.
Row 2 shade 2 - is a taupe brown with a shimmer finish.
Row 2 shade 3 - is a light bronze brown with a shimmer finish.
Row 2 shade 4 - is a dusty deep brown with a shimmer finish.
Row 2 shade 5 - is a warm red-brown with a matte finish and pale gold micro-shimmer.
Row 2 shade 6 - is a warm brown with a gold shimmer finish.
Wear: On their own, these will crease in 3 hours on me. There is just not enough binder for these shades to last on their own. With an eye primer they will last though.
Packaging: Basic compact with a clear lid and sponge applicator.

This is a workable palette from Maybelline but I'm still disappointed in those shimmer shades simply because they have put out excellent shimmer eyeshadows in past quads so it almost makes me think they are going with a new chemist to cut costs.
