PROS: I adore these colors. Will last pretty well if you use a primer first (like Too-Faced's). A lot of people like to use it as a base for powder, and then it lasts great for them without primer. Pretty inexpensive.
CONS: Need a primer to make it last or have to use it as a base.
I'm really impressed with this product. I expected really bad creasing and fading but I found that these cream shadows stay in all day with very little creasing. I don't use a primer, but my eyelids aren't particularly oily. I usually use the second lightest color all over the lid and the darkest shade blended into the outer corner--perfect on lazy days. I think the key is to apply the product sparingly.
I bought this because of the reviews here, and I have to say I'm disappointed. I never had problems with creasing (I didn't even know what creasing was until a little while ago) with eyeshadow, so I didn't think this would be an issue. Unfortunately, it is. Although the colours are pretty and great to wear for a casual, everyday, barely made up look, it creases after only a little while!
While I could use an eye primer, I wouldn't since I've never had creasing problems before and my make up has always lasted me an entire day. I wish I could return it, but sadly, no cosmetic returns allowed at drugstores.
I have 3 palettes of colours and think tehy look beautiful. The only thing is that they wear off too quickly.
I like this product but it doesn't go the distance. The colors are exceptionally pretty. I especially love the pinkish-gold color. When first applied the colors are so beautiful and shimmery, but they don't last through the day and the shadow fades even with a primer. Packing it on just adds creases to faded spots. I feel like adding a powder shadow over these is pointless because you lose the shimmer and the dimensional color.
The packaging is sleek and sturdy, but it is confusing that when you open it, the clear parts where you see the shadow is on the bottom, so they always seem backwards.
I really like this easy little compact tray of cream eyeshadows. I'm really pale so the colors are perfect for me to blend on to my skin / lids and into eachother for a nice natural look or something with more depth too. They do crease somewhat without a base or anything but its a soft crease and I love the way the creams just sort of glow. Really nice, way better than you'd think. I'd rebuy.
I am so glad I bought this product! It was less than $5 and I am impressed with the quality. I gave the packaging 3 lippies because it was hard to open the compact. The colors are great, natural-looking but not too subtle. It's easy to apply with my finger, I can't wait to try applying it with a small concealer brush. Update: it creased terribly after one hour with no primer or base. I still like the color payoff though.
I bought this back in either 2000 or 2001 and I will not be buying again. Horrible product.
I like using these as bases for other eyeshadows. I usually use Too Faced Shadow Insurance and then Revlon creme shadow and then a quality eyeshadow on top. I do like the second color from the left. I have worn it by itself with the primer underneath and a matte neutral eyeshadow in the crease.
This is the first revlon creme shadow i have purchased. The colors are quite pretty. But i you have to apply quite a bit. Overall i like this product.
