This is for "Decadent". I bought it on a whim while on vacation in Miami while buying sunscreen. I liked the neutral shades and the modern packaging. I use the gold shade just about everyday. It stays put four hours and has good pigmentation. The other colours...meh. The brown is good to create a smoke eye, but is hard to blend out. If they come out with a better colored neutral quad I would buy it again.
I bought this quad in Siren. Beautiful, beautiful shades! I mostly use the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd shade. I don't really care for the 4th black shade since I already use another black eyeshadow. I find that this product lasts a good majority of the day with eyeshadow primer. I may have to apply once throughout the day but that's it. It blends well, very smooth application and I like how the sponge applicator has a pointed tip so I can apply a thin line to my lower lash line. This is the ONLY quad I've tried so far, and after reading the reviews on the other quads, I think I'll stay on the safe side and only stick with this one, one that I know I love. I for sure plan on repurchasing this again once I'm all out of product.
Revlon needs to learn that if it isn't broke, they don't need to fix it...they had the perfect quads before. "Coffee Bean" and "Azure Mist" were great combinations..now they have this tacky collection. Bring back the old!!!!
I just purchased the "Delightful" quad after watching a couple of You Tube beauty gurus mention these newer Revlon quads with declarations of "great pigmentation" and "buttery smooth texture." Needless to say, my experience swatching these eyeshadows was just the opposite. The cream matte color was chalky, the golden shimmery shade was fall-out central, and the other shades were unremarkable in pigmentation. I suppose if it weren't for the golden shade which fell all to glittery pieces when swatched, I'd maybe try them in action and apply them to the eyes. But really, I can spend just as much on TWO Wet'n'Wild trios which won't give me any of these problems! Really quite disappointed...This quad is going back to the store!
I could have written the review below. Only difference I bought "Attitude " to replace "in the buff" quad and am so dissapointed. "In the buff" had a slight shimmer which I loved but this has glitter which I hate. Ok the glitter's not that obvious but it's there.I even had glitter on my cheek the other day.There is one colour in the quad that's not too bad but it's chalky.Not a good move Revlon!!
Huge disappointment. I bought this in "Attitude," thinking it was very close to the old quad "Coffee Bean," but I was sadly mistaken. First, the packaging is crap. The lid to my compact doesn't click shut -- it just sits on top of the bottom plastic part, so it won't stay closed. The product is chalky, has no pigmentation and requires multiple layers to get the product to show up. Revlon needs to bring back the old Colorstay quads, which were decent shadows at a decent price. This new product is lousy at any price.
I too was seduced by the colors in these quads, however, I have to agree with the majority of reviewers, the pigmentation in these is horrible. They are hard, chalky and a difficult to apply and work with.
I find this hard to comprehend since I dearly love the single eyeshadows they seem to do so well. Nude Slip is HG for me and the formula is so nice and silky. One of my best friends adores the matte navy shade (Rivera Blue) in these singles and I have even bought her this shade when I saw some deeply discounted.
Why these quads are so horrific is beyond me. Why can Revlon do lip sticks and some eyeshadows so well and these are so below standard?
Do not recommend, not worth the price, will not buy again.
I have several of these. While others have commented on the lack of pigmentation, and it is true, all you need is a decent base. I put down a sheer wash of color tattoo, and have no problem getting any of the colors to show, and they do not budge all day. I do find that they get better after you use them once or twice, they are quite hard on the surface, but softer underneath. I have not had any problems with the packaging, and the pans are a good size. What I love about these are the color combinations, they really are beautiful and very wearable. They offer a great combination of colors to do several different looks with each quad, so they are versatile. Too often quads are combinations only a 20yr old going to a club could wear. I also love the fact that they are not super shimmery like too many drugstore eyeshadows. Shimmer is great... don't get me wrong.. but it gets overwhelming when every shadow you own is a shimmer. Pigmentation is also great, but sometimes it's nice to be able to use a subtle color, or build intensity, instead of constantly fighting overpigmentation (like many WnW shadows) that try to take over your entire look or refuse to blend. So these definitely have a place in my collection. I find myself reaching for them frequently for "normal" daytime looks.. and would recommend them to anyone wanting a subtle shadow for work or school.
I have this quad in the shade Decadent, which consists of 2 pinks, a gold, and a brown-purple crease color.
First off, I HATE the highlight shade. It has fine glitter particles which fall onto my cheeks, no matter how good my eyeshadow base is If there's one thing I hate, it's getting glitter all over my face. Now that I've learned my lesson I don't touch the highlight shade anymore.
The pink shade is ok. It has a great sheen and no glitter, which actually makes it a MUCH better highlight color than the shade that was actually supposed to be the highlight. The pigmentation is not true to what you see in the pan, unfortunately. The pink barely shows up; it goes on very frosty. So as I said, useful as a highlight color but not for much else.
The golden-yellow is the best quality of the bunch. It has great texture and pigmentation, and is very blendable.
The brown-purple color is very pigmented, but not very blendable.
In the end this quad does create a pretty nice look, which is neutral enough for everyday wear. However, the inconsistencies in quality make it a product I will not repurchase.
Oops, I got tempted by the pretty matte colors of the Inspired quad - turquoise, lime green, a dark periwinkle & white. But pigmentation is weak, texture is dry & chalky. EDIT: I scratched up the surface to remove the overspray; now they are much more pigmented, softer, and easier to use. They are not incredibly buttery, but they are decent, maybe even good, pigmented shadows now. Inspired is like a Modrian painting or a Scandinavian flag: crisp blocks of white, turquoise, grass green & blue/purple; these colors are not easy to wear & as for designing a look that uses all of them; no way I'm up for this. But for $6 it's worth a try to play with a new matte shade. continued >>
