Revlon Colorstay Shadow links

I really don't know how I feel about these, don't get me wrong they aren't a bad product they're  just not a great one either. I expected more because they were from Revlon. They aren't the worse shadows by far but when they are compared to the likes of MUA which are a third of the price and double the size, they just don't deliver. The pigmented isn't completely horrendous but they do have to be built up. I also found that not even my urban decay primer potion intensified the colours at all.

 They do blend really nicely and last a good amount of time. I won't completely neglect these but they aren't something I'm going to reach for often. The shade I have used the most is sand as it looks really pretty in the middle of the lid to add an extra sparkle. Taupe is the least pigmented and the one I am only going to use once in a blue moon. The colour in the pan is a beautiful shimmery taupe but on the lid it is a weak pale brown which is just such a waste of time. Cocoa is the best in terms of pigment and works as a nice crease shade but the fact that it has to be built up so much means I don't tend to have time in the morning to mess about with it when I have other shadows that I can just sweep on and go!

  1. The lighter shade looks so pretty :) Really want to try some of those eye shadows.

  2. The shades are so pretty so it's a shame they aren't up to standard. I have never tried anything except lipsticks and colourstay foundation from Revlon, guess I'll avoid these! x

  3. It's such a shame the shadows haven't got great pigmentation because it's such a good idea to be able to create your own personalised palette with them. I don't think I'll bother trying these if they haven't got good colour payoff because it's just a waste of money, and kind of makes the idea seem like it's more of a gimmick that an actual good product!
    Thanks for such an informative post,

  4. I have a couple of these and they aren't the most pigmented are they!

  5. I have some of these. Actually blogged about them a while back. I wasn't impressed with the colour pay off either. Such a shame - I love Revlon! x
