Hi everyone!

I use eyeshadows quite rarely, but I have always wanted to find a shimmerless eyeshadow palette of beige and brown shades. But alas there were only shimmer eyeshadows available in our local stores.

When I saw this palette, I thought that I’d finally found my long-desired product but unfortunately, the palette turned out to be far from perfect.

Product description:

Rich, velvety shadows blend smoothly for beautiful, luxurious color that wears for up to 16 hours. Won’t crease, fade or smudge. Available in a variety of expertly color-coordinated palettes for your most gorgeous eyes yet.

So, the Revlon palette consists of 4 shades, from light beige to coffee.


Price: $5.97

There is no mirror in the palette, which is a major drawback in my opinion. There is a double-sided applicator, but its quality is far from being great. I don’t use it, as I prefer to apply my eyeshadows with a brush.

Let’s take a closer look at these shades:

1 - The lightest shade, blends smoothly into my skin, and has a tiny shimmer in it.

2 - Darker than the first one, delicate beige, contains tiny shimmer particles as well.

3 - Bronze, satin, and without shimmer

4 - The most beautiful shade, in my opinion. Coffee, or hot chocolate, completely matte, without any shimmer at all.


Even in this photo you can see that the first three shades are barely pigmented and almost invisible on the skin.

Now makeups, in different lighting:

My opinion:

✔ The eyeshadows are easily picked up with a brush but I don’t like how they blend on the eyelid. They are hardly blendable and combined with each other, and it’s pretty hard to achieve a smooth transition.

✔ Okay, the first two shades are barely visible, but why is the third one so lowly pigmented? I don’t understand it. I had similar colors before but all of them were okay.

✔ The only shade which delights me is the last one. It’s highly pigmented and can be used in makeup, but only together with any other palette.

✔ The eyeshadows stay put really long and don’t crease. They don’t fall out, except for shimmer particles.

I didn’t get what I expected. I wanted a vibrant makeup with smooth transitions, but it’s impossible to achieve the desired effect with this palette. It would be suitable only for those who like natural makeup.

Anyway, I won’t recommend it.
