Happy Monday! If you didn't know fashionxfairytale turned 4 over on the weekend. I'm so excited that I have been doing this for 4 years so I went in and went through all the first blog posts I did and I realized I have over 20 drafts and I felt I needed to publish some of them to declutter I guess. I gotten into a habit of making a blog post and then upload pictures to it just so I can save it for later when I need it and it just got to the point where it was over filling. Now it was time I started to get them published and I promised over twitter I would try this month to get the beauty posts I have been keeping hiding away even though they have been harder to write lately but I did try to push through though. I decided to dedicate this week as eyeshadow palette review week since I had quite a few. Here's the first one out of many where I review, give my thoughts and show you the Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Quad in 435 Goddess.
Description (From Revlon): 4 new shades to love! 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.
The packaging is this black shiny plastic square and on the back you have instructions and the front is this clear lid to let you see in. It doesn't have a mirror which I am okay with since who really needs one in every product. It doesn't feel cheap but it is quite light and I like the shine instead of matte because I feel it doesn't get dirty as fast. It comes with that awful foam applicator which I never use anymore and I'm surprised it is still in there.
It comes with quite nice color choices. The first comes with a white yet silver tone shade to highlight with or a base. The second is pinky/purple tone which reminds me of an orchid plant I had when I was younger. The third is a silver that isn't all that shimmery but it isn't matte as well. The last is supposed to be dark color and is a black tone but I think it is more of a very dark charcoal grey instead. I'm not very good at describing color but in my eyes that's how these colors come off in pan and also when swatched.
As you can see with the swatches they aren't the best pigmentation but when applied with a primer I get pretty good color off of them. The lightest would have to be the pink but I kind of like the subtle highlight it gives and looks so pretty underneath on the waterline instead of eyeliner. The darkest shade would have to be the blackish grey and it can be a lovely smoked out color and it is pretty good with smudging out which is nice.
Overall ExperienceThis is a great beginner eyeshadow quad and it is a fun way to start incorporating color. I love the subtle pink purple tones and instead of a neutral colored eye this is great for trying a little color especially if it is in your fave color. I can manage to create a few different eye looks for this and some colors may not be pigmented as others it is still a nice choice to build up colors and not much fallout.
My rating is: ♥♥♥♡♡
It is still not up there for meas I don't reach for it everyday and some shades are a little chalky and don't have enough pigmentation. But for being a drugstore quad I think it still passes and I still do like it but it isn't the best for me and what I've seen. I might still buy it in a different color variation to try it out though.
Those have been my thoughts on the Revlon eyeshadow quad. It isn't a bad quad and I still like everything about the concept of it but I don't use it as much is all. I hope you will enjoy my eyeshadow review week and I think I will enjoy having this kind of theme week and might make it a regular week if I decide I really like it by the end. Hope you liked this and let me know what you have thought if you tried a variation of one of these eyeshadow quads.
What is your go to look when using an eyeshadow quad?
