Mary Quant’s Eye Opener Eyeshadows come in an impressive selection – 120 colours to be exact, always with 12 seasonal limited edition colours.
The eyeshadows cover a smörgåsbord of shades and textures.
Below is a chart of all the colours. From left to right (treat each one as a vertical column) they cover the following colour groups:
Red, Orange, Yellow, Yellow Green, Green, Blue, Violet, Purple, Flesh Pink, Flesh Yellow, Neutral and Lightness.
The textures can be matte, pearl, metallic, twinkle.

You can see that from the top to bottom, the colours go from light to dark too.
Take a good look at these charts. For months I agonised, plotted and planned which 12 shades I would take home with me. I wanted a mix of shades (nudes, brown, blues, purples) and textures too.
There’s also 16 metallic shades which are TO DIE FOR. They are creamy, completely lush.
One of the nicest shades in the metallic in my opinion is M-07 a brown-silvery-taupe. I didn’t buy that though because I wanted an completely TRUE silver so bought M-15, M10, M12. M-08 is a leaf green and is also beautiful but I wish they had a rich emerald metallic green instead.
They also have 8 Twinkle shades:
