Review: Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Quad

Hello Loves 

A little while ago my sister bought some make-up to try and one of the things she bought was the eye shadow quad from Revlon. Since this is a product always in your face when you visit the Revlon self, I though why not do a review about it.

If you would like to see some swatches and more photos click the link below! 

Colors: When you first look at this palette, the colors are beautifully matched. You have a shimmery, pearl high-light. One grey and black shimmery shadows great for a chic look. Then a matte yellow for a extra pop of color. 

When swatched once, you get very faint...i mean...FAINT swatches ( except for the white). Colors are so blah when applied. Even with a concealer base, the colors fail to show up.

Application: Application is so-so, after a few strokes I was able to get the shimmery colors evenly applied to my eyes. Though, the matte yellow was a fail because I had to literally scrape the pan to get the yellow color. 

Btw, I used Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette as my base.

Standby Time:  This eyes shadow says it lasts for six-teen hours (claim), but most definitely not. I applied the eye shadow at 12:00 am and now it is 9:00 pm (total of eight hours) and the yellow is very-very faint. The shimmery, you would think would last, creased and pigmentation disappeared to the blah look.

Overall: 1/5 

Quick Look: Blah colors and does not stand up to the claims it makes.

Will I repurchase:, jk NO!! 

Have you ever tried this product?

No concealer base, blah colors

Concealer base, little difference.
