The Packaging: The packaging of this palette is pretty standard. The bottom that contains the eyeshadows is black and the lid is clear so that you can see the shadow pans inside. There are also some silver stars along the border of the lid with a silver Stila logo in the center. I have to say that the palette is quite small though.
1. Pink Quartz- I'd say this is the "nude" of the quad. The color is sort of a medium rosey color with a hint of peachy nude and lots of silver glitter.
2. Amethyst- A darker plummy purple with gold glitter.
3. Black Diamond- This one really won me over. It's an intense black with silver glitter. This one really looks wet -like a sea of black, glittering water. (Black water?! Is that weird??) This would look great all over the lid (a bit too much on me personally but will look absolutely amazing on someone else.)
4. Golden Topaz- A golden peachy color with goldish glitter. I usually use this over my neutral shadows.

Overall: Gosh I love this palette so much. Perfect for the girl who loves all things sparkly. If you're planning on buying this -remember, don't expect the palette to be huge because it's pretty tiny. I didn't want to pay $32 for such a itsy bitty palette but it was well worth it. I've even had my male friends comment on my "cool makeup" and boys usually don't notice that sort of thing! My bf hates it though -he hates all makeup with the exception of eyeliner and a bit of gloss. Anyways, I love it and I seriously recommend it to anyone who wants to add a little sparkle to their lives.
*Note: Like I've mentioned before, I'm quite behind on posts. For months (when I wasn't updating my blog on a regular basic) I've taken pictures and reviewed products without posting about them. So just as a little notice, the next few weeks -maybe even months, will contain older product reviews. And of course, I will include newer products as well. Most the products to be reviewed are still available in stores currently so they're not super, super old -just things that came out a few months or so ago.
