This is my go-to crease shade for any eye look; it's just so damn versatile!
When I was looking in the Revlon eye section in store, the glitter practically sold me on this single. I'm a sucker for any unique-looking (but wearable) eyeshadow, and this fit the bill oh so finely. The color itself looked more like a dark grey rather than a black; I think all the glitter gave a patina of shine that made the eyeshadow look more silvery. That didn't really take away anything from its quality, though.
I've had awesome luck with this eyeshadow's pigmentation; while it won't give you a pure charcoal black, which I wasn't really expecting it to, it will give you a very workable grey-black shade which goes with almost any other color (holy run-on sentence). The glitter looks very overwhelming at first, but not a lot of it actually makes it onto your eyes- most of it becomes fallout. You decide whether that's a plus or a minus.
The texture of this eyeshadow is great, once you get past the initial layer of pressed glitter. Because of the glitter, it feels rather gritty, but I don't think that it affects its behavior when you apply it. I've been able to blend it easily, and you can pack it on pretty well if you really want that glitter.
I love its staying power; with primer, it lasts through anything without creasing or fading, including aggressive swimming. Also, you get a great amount of product for the price, which is pretty cheap as it is- I got one for around $5. I highly recommend this eyeshadow- it can really add dimension to any eye look.
Luv it as an eyeliner I saw it in CVS and as a sparkle lover I thought oh this will be a nice liner. Like I use BlackHeart in my Naked3 I really am digging blacks with sparkle for liner, because they are softer looking and not as harsh as pure blacks. To avoid fallout and I had none was because I used a firm bristled angled brush. You have to go with firm bristles to grasp the product. Otherwise you will have fallout city. I also like to use a mixing medium and do a wet application that I can build on. I use Missha's Mixing Medium you only need one drop and you are great.
This comes out black but you can see the sparkles but it's not childish at all. Like I said it's a softer line without a doubt and I find it makes my lashes look thicker so I push some shadow in as well. I used my ELF angled liner brush because my MAC was way too soft and I couldn't get the control I wanted. I love the green,blue,red,and silver sparkles with the black it's a really nice colour. It has good pigment in my opinion with this shadow I think it comes down to the brush if you want success in application. Otherwise the shadow will not appear as it does in the pan. So my only quip is the brush I have to use by really that's being nit picky.;) I love the shade and recommend it!
I ended up returning this as it was a complete dud for me. I love Revlon's creme lipsticks and their HD contouring collections, but I've had such badluck with their eye shadows. This had no pigment in it. It looked so beautiful in the package and then when I put it on it completely disappeared except for the glitter. I wanted a glittery black color for a smokey eyed look. The only thing I got from this was plain old glitter. I tried building the color up, but nothing happened. Just sheer glitter, which I could've gotten from just using a sheer glitter product.
I'm sticking with Revlon's creme lipsticks and HD products, but I think this is the last eye shadow product I'm buying from them. Revlon's Luxorious Diamond Dust in "Night Sky" was a major disappointment for me.
I'd read the reviews so I wasn't expected much. I only bought it because with my coupons it was only 49 cents. What the heck. But without primer, it shows up nicely. It's a deep grey with pretty multi-color shimmer. With primer, it can be used as an eyeliner. Wish they made more colors.
I like glittery eyeshadow but this one was a disappointment. It's very pretty in the pan but it has weak pigmentation and tons of fallout. If it was a glittery pigmented black I'd love it but you have to wear a good primer under it to make it show up on the lids.
Stupidest product ever. All it does is add glitter to your eyelids that falls all over your face. I feel ripped off, because this was not at all worth the $5 I paid for it.
i am an adult and i love glitter. i cant help it. it just catches my eye and doesn't let go. so when i saw this on sale for 2.99, i had to have it even though i have hundreds of eyeshadows that i never wear.
when i looked at it, i thought it was more glitter based and hadn't realized the charcoal base to it, but after i tried it on, i still loved it. it goes on nice and deep with primer and more sheer without. i used a little shimmer purple to make a gorgeous smokey eye. tried it as eyeliner, which looked incredible. overall, i couldn't be happier and i kind of want to try the other colors, even though i am not huge on single colored glitter, i really dig the multi-dimensional like this one. worth a try if you like a glittery smokey eye, or just glitter in general.
I don't normally go for black or charcoal, but i figured i'd give this a try - it was cheap enough, so it wouldn't be a great loss if it failed. I like it because the darkness is tempered by silver and iridescent glitter.
Now, i LIKE glitter - used judiciously, of course. So i don't pair this with other glitter monsters. It is, however, quite the glitter fallout bomb. I do my eyes first before doing my face - that way i can get off most of the fallout and it isn't stuck in my foundation. Much of it stays where it should, fortunately, but i do find some down my decolletage when it's time to take off my makeup.
Someone just recommended Too Faced Glitter Glue to me, so i'll give that a try and see if it helps keep it from shedding so much. I still like it. I wear glasses, so any fallout around my eyes is not as noticeable as it would be if i didn't...
temptalia did a not so great review on the blue shade of this line of shadow. this one is no different. bronze, blue & green glitter chunks with smaller silver micro glitter in a charcoal colored shadow. the colorful glitter is messy and gets everywhere even over udpp. the silver micro glitter does manage to stay put i guess because its more plentiful and infused into the shadow better. revlon consistently makes such disappointing eye makeup products.
This is nice if you're looking for a gray color with sparkle. I was looking for a silver shimmer shadow and this wasn't it :/ I gave it a 3 because the price and package aren't bad but it's not very true to color.
