Products:
L'Oreal Colour Riche Pocket Palettes are a mix of satin matte and shimmer shades in these quads. Boudoir Charme has the best shade with satin a shimmer formulas. The satin was incredible buttery and smooth to apply while  the shimmer shades were smooth to work with and very pigmented.

Avant Garde Azure palette really suffered for both the shimmer shades and the matte ones. The shimmer shades where sheer and slightly dry to work with, while the matte shade wee chalky and powdery at the same time which is not a good combination.

Haute Hazel has 3 beautifully pigmented and smooth shimmer shades to work with, while the matte shade was powdery but very pigmented and binds better to skin compared to the 2 shades in the Avant Garde Azure.

The matte shades in both their palettes are very smooth a silky in texture but are not super pigmented the pigmentation is however intensified over a primer which is how must of us have to use eyeshadows anyway to make them last. I still found then to blend out nicely over bare skin with one another.

The satin and pearl shades are smoother in texture but also surprising not crazy pigmented. These however, build up nicely with little effort.


Colour:
Boudoir Charme:
Shade 1 is a light tan with a satin finish.
Shade 2 is a rose brown nude with a matte finish.
Shade 3 is a warm copper brown with a shimmer finish.
Shade 4 is a cool mid-ton brown with a shimmer finish.

Avant Garde Azure:
Shade 1 is a light turquoise with a shimmer finish. (this shade was slightly sheer)
Shade 2 is a dusty light blue nude with a shimmer finish. (this shade was sheer)
Shade 3 is a bright blue with a matte finish. (this shade is powdery and slightly chalky)
Shade 4 is a beep navy with a matte finish. (this shade is powdery and slightly chalky)

Haute Hazel:
Shade 1 is a vibrant camel rose with a satin finish.
Shade 2 is a bright teal with a shimmer finish.
Shade 3 is a gunmetal green with a shimmer finish.
Shade 4 is a deep teal green with a matte finish. (this shade is powdery but not chalky)

Wear: 6 hours for the shimmery/pearl shades on bare skin and 2 hours for the mattes.

Packaging: Simple black compact with snap closure clear lid

Verdict:
The Boudoir Charme and Haute Hazel are nice little quads to work with pigmentation wise. I would definitely skip the Avant Garde Azure one because of those 2 powdery mattes which is a shade because I was hopping it would replace the Wet n Wild Blue had me at Hello palette that was discontinued 2 years ago.
