What it claims:
Maybelline's Color Delights Cream Eyeshadows are light and lustrous, infused with just the right amount of shimmer. Mix and match the colors for countless effects.Six unique four-pan color collections, Light-infused cream shadow. Luminous, shimmery color. Weightless, silky formula glides on easily.

My Experience:
I got this quad a long time ago in the shades of 'Berry Blazes' -50. It's net weight is 8grams and does not come with a brush. This quad is extremely handy providing for different shades of creamy eye shadows that can easily be applied using your fingers as well. I sometimes use these shades on their own or mix n match to get another shade to match my look. All four eye shadows sit in their own part of the container. They might look matte to you but they come with very fine granules of glitter in them giving your eyes a sparkly effect. This eye shadow will not stay longer than 4-5 hours if used without a primer, but even when the colour fades out the glittery effect stays behind which I love it for too. But I will not recommend you wearing a primer underneath as they are already creamy and have their own texture, adding a base to them would just make your eyes look cakey! 

Usually how I use this quad is that i use the light pink on the lower side of eyelid, then making an outline effect with the darker pink and the whitish tone can be used as a highlighter and the brown can always help you fix you brows, but then again you can always use these shades on your own. I'll soon do a EOTD with this and show you all what it looks like :)

Here are swatches of all four shades:

Overall, this product is worth a try and comes very handy and easy to carry for everyday use! This Quad is available in 4 other shades and retails are about $6 which it very reasonable i believe for something like this. You can order it from the Maybelline website if you have it in your country or you can simply find a store that retails it.
