I'm reviewing this for the shade "Seductive", which is the purple palette. I was originally drawn by the cool midtone purples, which bring out the red tones in my brown eyes. The packaging is sleek, and the price is fine- not too expensive, but I'd wait for a sale.
The colors in the palette are a glittery pale lilac, a darker (but still pale!) lilac, a beautiful cool midtone, and a dark purple with blue shimmer. The top two shades look exactly the same on the eye and I cannot stand them. No matter how much I pack them on, they still don't appear. They cannot be used on the browbone because of the glitter and just... patch everywhere. lol. The top two are literally awful. On a primer, they work exactly the same. The bottom two colors are the redeeming colors in the palette, they're beautiful! I love to put UD Half Baked on the lid, with the midtone in the crease and the dark purple in the outer "v". The only problem with the darker colors is that they fade... and almost change colors? Originally they appear on the lid fairly close to the pan color, but as the minutes go by, they fade to a duskier, paler color. I just put more on, and the problem is solved!
Thank gosh I had a coupon for this!
I got the quad "moonlight" for $2.65, its original price was $8.49. These colors are okay, but are a bit sparkly for me. I am still trying to make these work, mostly because I really really WANT them to work! The shades are too pretty, I just can't throw them out! I'll update if I find a way to make them work!!
Oh, the packaging is really good by the way :)
First of all I would have to say I much prefered the old Colorstay quads, but I preferred the old wet dry quads way more than both of these. These aren't actually so bad. I had the quad Siren (silver/taupes) was just awful on me bad lasting power and super glittery all the colours turned bluish on my yellow toned skin. However I also have the Luscious (greens quad) when I first recieved it I had to admit I thought it would look very 80s (mint green brow highlighter, lime green mid tone, olive green and a hunter green shimmer gold duochrome) I was actually amazed how nice this one went on, the olive tone really blends with the lime green and makes it alot more wearable - a weird combo of greens which seems to really bring out the green in my hazel eyes - most green palettes make my eyes appear more of an amber colour . I would probably use a white brow highlight but overall a really nice quad - a 4 for the Luscious quad but would rate the Siren quad a 1. I have since purchased the Delightful quad - pretty peachy shades with creams gold and grey but this one is just atrocious - I am the palest of the pale and this doesnt show up on me even with a primer and a base its just gritty glitter all over my face - dreadful. I have also purchased the brown quad Addictive and expecting it to arrive soon hopefully I have better luck with it like I did the Luscious quad. Sorry Revlon you could do better these are so hit and miss unlike your last Colorstay quads and the amazing wet dry quads before those.
As usual, something wasn't broke, but some idiot got a bright idea and thought he had to fix it anyway. Revlon's old quads were wonderful; the color was creamy and pigmented and the payoff was great. These new ones are pretty sorry. My go-to day quad was the old Nude Elements because of the perfect cool matte taupe shade it had. Now, the old quads feature mostly warmer browns and taupes. Also, LISTEN UP, REVLON! What happened to matte shadows? I am 49 years old and I don't want fairy dust on my freaking eyelids!
The staying power of these eye shadows was actually pretty good, but I found the pay-off quite disappointing. I would rub and rub at the eyeshadow and very little actually came off. I prefer eye shadows that are a little more creamy and easy to work with.
This is a very good eyshadow who stays for a long time. Excellent quality. I don't understand the low rating.
This stuf is CRAP!!! It should be called 4 HOUR... that's about all I get out of it & I prime my eye lids prior to applying any eye shadow! Revlon, PLEASE get rid of this crap & bring back your OLD quads you had, that was good stuff!!!! 16 hours, my rear end!!!!!
I'm glad I got this in a swap because I'm not sure if I'd actually shell out $6 for one of these. The colors are nice and blendable and they last all day but fall out was terrible! I had to redo my concealer.
This shadow quad is crap. Not pigmented at all. color barely noticeable once it is on....and I put it on over TFSI.
I guess the best way to describe this is....Meh.
I got this on a whim, allured by the sleek packaging.
Honestly, It's not BAD per say....it's just not great.
The colors themselves seem to have nice pigmentation, long wearing ( especially over my UDPP ) and generally well textured....
But I just don't love the coloring. The gold-ish color is nice, but I have a better M.A.C one that I use a lot. They aren't that flattering on my cool skin tone.
I won't re-purchase not becasue they are poor quality, but just becasue I don't and probably never will use them.
