Wal-Mart Goodies!

Yesterday on the way home I popped into Wal-Mart just for the heck of it..ohh and because I had a 25$ gift card I wanted to spend. My birthday is approaching soon and my best friend has restricted me from buying certain brands because she doesn't want me to pick up items that she's already gotten for me.  Revlon (nail polishes) and Maybelline products were not apart of her long list so I decided to go by their stands and here's what I picked up...
I have fallen in LOVE with Revlon polishes, for the most part I'm very fond of the formula, and the application, the color selection is also really nice. For the longest time I've been looking for a light pastel lilac nail polish, Lisa ( my best Friend) has Essie's "To Buy or not to Buy" and anytime she wears it I'm always drooling. The shade "Charming" is a very feminine color, and actually very similar to Essie's. Sheer Patel is a soft pink that's rather on the sheer side hence the name, nevertheless I love it! I think it's perfect when your going for a fresh clean manicure! I've bitten my nails recently however buying nail polishes has really encouraged me to stop.
Along with the polishes I also got 2 Maybelline Quads...
I don't own mainly purple eye shadows but was instantly drawn to this palette (Perfect Pastels) because the colors aren't too deep. Every shade except for the liner color (bottom shade) is on the light side. Modern Metallics is a beautiful bronzed palette with golden shimmer. I paid 7$ for each palette and the pigmentation/ color pay off is on the fair side. The first time I swatched I had to apply just a bit of pressure to get a decent amount of product on my finger, although the Modern Metallics palette is much richer in color. Maybelline has a lot of lovely palettes, it's almost so hard to choose because they all look so nice. 
Any thoughts on these Products? Do you own them? What do you think?
