Products: 
The Matte shades are both smooth and pigmented to work with. They best mattes in the drugstore I've every worked with and reminds me of a step-down version of MAC's Matte2 formula but much nicer than their standard Matte formula.

The Shimmer shades were also smooth to work with a very pigmented.

The Illuminator is the worst part of these palettes. They are a sheer shimmery white pearl but the formula was VERY emollient and you need to set with a powder which kind of defeats the purpose of having it as a hilighter. I throw then out after depotting these palettes.

The Primer is a was based cream that applies sheer. It didn't prolong the wear of any eyeshadow I tried with it but it's more like the NYX jumbo pencil and helps to intensify any colour put over it.

Colour (grouped by rows):
#938 Union Square
Highlighter is a pale ivory nude with a matte finish. (Remind me of MAC's Blanc Type)
All Over Lide is a warm light brown with a matte finish. (Remind me of MAC's Wedge)
Crease #1 is a is a warm brown with a shimmer finish.
Crease #2 is a warm plum with a matte/satin finish.

#940 Central Park
Highlighter is a pale sand with a shimmer finish.
All Over Lide is a pale yellow with a shimmer finish.
Crease #1 is a cool light brown with a matte finish. (Remind me of MAC's Cork but leans slightly more yellow)
Crease #2 is a deep cool brown with a matte finish.

Wear: I get up to 6 hours for all the finishes on their own.

Packaging:  Plastic compact with a clear lid. Comes with sponge applicators.

Daylight swatches: #938 Union Square shadows in Highlighter, All Over Lid, Crease #1, & Crease #2.
Flash swatches: #938 Union Square shadows in Highlighter, All Over Lid, Crease #1, & Crease #2.
Daylight swatches: #940 Central Park shadows in Highlighter, All Over Lid, Crease #1, & Crease #2.
Flash swatches: #940 Central Park shadows in Highlighter, All Over Lid, Crease #1, & Crease #2.
Verdict: 
These are by far my Favourite staple eyeshadows from the drugstore. If you're looking for some MAC dupes #938 Union Square replaced me buying a few shades I was always repurchasing for only $6.
