Girl, the struggle is so real. These Revlon ColorStay™ Crème Eyeshadows kicked me into #makeuphoarders mode real quick because they look, feel and blend A LOT like MAC Paint Pots. On my lids (which are dry), they last all day long, too. And they’re only $7.99, WHAT?!
Revlon even hid a brush in the cap, which I really don’t use…but I like that it’s there. It’s very James Bond.
So, these are cool, especially for fast, sheer layers of color and shimmer. They come in 12 colors, and I’ve tried a handful of them so far.
Let me say that one more time ’cause it’s important. SHEER!
Compared to similar cream shadows from more expensive lines, like the ones from MAC and Benefit, these are less pigmented; that’s for sure. I’d say they’re about half as pigmented, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing at all in this case.
I mean, these are best for quick washes of shimmer and color. That’s what they’re for, and they’re great for that. When all you want is a little (affordable) shimmer and glow, they’re perfect.
I’ll use them for quickie looks and apply and blend them with my fingers on my lids. Then I’ll curl my lashes, whack on some mascara, and that’s it.
