I'm very pleased with this quad. All of the colors have smooth textures, are very blendable, & have smooth sheen finishes that are neither overly frosty nor metallic. None of these colors are matte. The two lighter colors have subtle shimmer & sheer pigmentation that make them ideal as highlighters for the brow bone or inner corners of the eyes. The two darker colors have no distinct shimmer & have sheer-to-medium pigmentation that make them suitable for midtone lid or crease colors. Left-most color is a pale white gold that's not distinctly yellow & can appear chalky on medium-to-dark skintones. Left-of-center color is a pale cantaloupe that's a smidge darker than the white gold & avoids potential chalkiness on medium-to-dark skintones. Right-of-center color is a cool muted eggplant brown & is more purple than I expected in this combo of warm colors. Right-of-center is the darkest color in this quad & works best as a crease color in my opinion. Right-most color is a warm-to-neutral brown that's a perfect, go-to lid color for light-to-medium skintones. I wouldn't describe any of the colors as Butternut but the name is appropriate in evoking this quad's autumnal palette. To give a sense of size, each of my fingertips fits easily (but just barely) in each pan. Each pan of color is surprisingly shallow but for the price & quality, I still think it's a bargain. I can travel easily with this quad without worrying about losing or shattering it.

I got this as a gift and while I use it, it is definitely not my favorite.
As mentioned by other users, it breaks so easily inside of the compact and you end up with eyeshadow EVERYWHERE.
I received a different color palette... white, black and 2 grays, but it is the same stuff.
The white is alright, it doesn't really do what it is supposed to i.e. brighten the eyes. I have to apply a lot of it and it doesn't seem to go on smoothly.
The black is just straight up messy and ugly!
I do like the silver in the upper right, but it is very very powdery so you get horrible fallout with it. It does last most of the day if you prime your eyes first.
The darker gray again, is kinda ugly.
So I give it 3 stars. I am spoiled by Mac eyeshadow.

Comments about e.l.f. Brightening Eye Color, Butternut, 1 set:

When we think of e.l.f. products it's an alternative to higher priced makeup. I actually, do like this eyeshadow quad. It has all the colors to do a natural eye but the only bad part is that the very first color on the right does not show and it does crease but for a dollar can't really complain!

    I have purchased eyeshaow that is "brick" hard and hard to use. The only thing about this eyeshadow that I did not like was that the powder is very loose and you use it up pretty fast. The colors are great and the application is smooth. I would buy it again.

    Comments about e.l.f. Brightening Eye Color, Butternut, 1 set:

    I am a fan of elf products, and have their holiday palette. My favorite colors from that palette are starting to hit pan, so I thought I'd look for some similar ones that came in a quad since i used those most anyways. And holy guacamole, there is so much glitter and fall out. The pigmentation is great, but the glitter is so chunky, and it's not like the ones in the palette, so I'm pretty disappointed. If you use your finger to blend it out, be careful, you will get glitter everywhere. If you're looking for a natural quad with good pigmentation, and are not turned off by the amount of glitter, it's a great quad for you!

      The shade up on right worth to buy the whole palette because Emilynoel83 said it's dupe to MAC Twinks so actually this shade is the best:buttery, not too shimmery. you will enjoy plus it's [$].

        I originally bought this eyeshadow for my travel kit as it was small and inexpensive. Had to buy another for everyday use as I found myself preferring it to the more expensive product I was using daily. Great colors and easy to apply. Loveit!

          I use all four of the colors for a nice blended look that works with my brown eyes. Great for someone who enjoys make-up that consists of natural colors.

              Comments about e.l.f. Brightening Eye Color, Butternut, 1 set:

              The "Butternut" collection has a wonderful duo-use, I found: the lighter colors are flesh-toned and believe it or not, do an excellent job of covering blemishes! I just use the applicator and gently dab until the coverage is complete....not too much, just gently dab. Now you see it, now you don't!
              It also helps to dry them up.
              It blends right in, is not noticeable, and it really does work to cover.
              Lucky me to have found such a treasure, so I thought I'd share.

              I use this with a primer or a concealer as a eye lid base and this stuff lastes for at least 5 hours. The darker colors last much much longer. I use it as a liner sometimes.The lightest one, disappears as soon as you put it on. Good only as a highlighter. The pinkist/light gold is my favorite. It give a nice glow and still looks natural. For the price, I love it.
