Well, turns out that US Variation looks very different color-wise from Cafemakeup's swatches of the Euro version:
The upper right shade is straight up light grey (not taupe) and the lower left is a boring light brown without any rosiness to it at all. Even the eggplant looks prettier in the Euro. In the US the "eggplant" is more of a purpley plum, not as deep, and not as much red in it. I may get the Euro version. It's not that it's a terrible quad but if you are after the shades in the Euro version you will not get them with the US one.
Thanks for the pics! Great that there is a US Variation. The texture and pigmentation looks much better, but I actually like the Euro version colours more. So this is one of those quads that have different colours for US and Euro versions but they are of the same name.
