This is my first Chanel quad and I have to say I've never felt an eyeshadow that felt so buttery. It's really insane. I just want to rub my finger on them all day! The are so soft and smooth I almost can't comprehend it! The swatches don't really knock my socks off, but when you put them on your eye, it is a whole different story. The colors may not look unique in the pan, however they are anything but ordinary and I highly recommend this. If you only get one Chanel quad, you can't go wrong with the Prelude Quad. I promise! Enjoy the swatches!
