Products: 
Most of these shadows are buttery in nature with a matte/satin pearl or shimmer finish in these palettes.

The Matte/Satin shades have a slight satin glow to them due to the smooth buttery texture that is slightly powdery while working with them. The pigmentation is good.

The Pearl shades have an even shine to their finish. The texture is slightly powdery but smooth to apply and blend with even pigmentation. Some of the shade had larger particles of shimmer in the mix.

The Shimmer shades had larger particles of shimmer in the mix that a little bit chunky with a more pearl/shimmer base. (First shade on the Moonlighting Quad)

Verdict:
These are not cheap for drugstore palettes. I do overall like the formula of the Mona Lisa quad. It easy to work with and blend out.

But the Moonlighting the first shade kind of ruined my intent you use this mixed as a highlighter. So long as I don't use Shade 1 in the quad it's fine fort hat purpose. But as an eyeshadow quad, it's strange to have an all white palette but it seems that the Monochromatic Quads are sold as staple shades with just different finishes that you would use all the time.
