My New Favorite Summer Shadows?

Hey guys!
So this is going to be a super quick post because it's not really a review as much as a photos and sneak peek type post! I got this palette from my mom earlier today (I think it was a clinique freebie that she didn't want) and because it was a freebee, some of the shades aren't available for purchase. I wasn't going to do a post on this originally, because why review something that you guys can't buy, but I fell in love with these shades and I think that they're perfect for summer! 

The shades in this palette are so gorgeous and I can just see myself wearing these a ton this spring and summer! I have the shade names for you, but as far as I know only two of them are permanent and available for purchase. From left to right, French Vanilla (permanent), Peach Pop (LE), At Dusk (permanent), and Olive in my Martini (LE). 

These are the swatches of the shadows in case you were wondering. I'll give you my thoughts on the two permanent ones just in case you were debating buying them! 
French Vanilla: Really super soft and creamy formula, which I totally love! It is a little sheer (it could also be because it's close to my skin tone) and it looks powdery if caked on (as do most mattes), but blends really well and the formula is fan-freaking-tastic!
At Dusk: Probably the shadow I was most excited about when I first saw the quad and I have to say it doesn't disappoint! It has a really smooth texture and has really great pigmentation! It is really metallic and so gorgeous!

So this was a different post, but I just had to share with you guys! Let me know if you have this quad or any of the shadows in it and what you think of it! Also, let me know if you want tutorials with any of these shades (I'm thinking one with the coral and another with the gold?)
