I have normal skin so this works just fine on me. I have used it with and without a base. It does crease if you try to put too much on. It lasted much better with a base. The colors are gorgeous. I see they don't make the pink quad anymore but I loved that one. I even put one of the colors on my lips.
I either apply them with my ring finger or a concealer brush for a more precise application.
Colors are all very pretty in these palettes. But, creases like crazy! I have a hard time dealing w/ my oily lids and topping this on them made them worse. The e/s looks perfect once applied, but go out on a hot humid day for a few hours and boy what a mess my lids were. I threw them away, wasn't for me.
I've got 3 palletes of these cream eyeshadows. I use them as a base,but I wouldn't recommend it using by itself. It creases if you use it alone and it just fades through out the day. The packaging for me is soo soo... I would like it better if it comes with an applicator... I don't think I would buy it again...
Very nice creme eyshadow!!
this is my first creme ey shadow and i am very much impressed with Revlon's creme eye shadow.
I have Copper Coast palette, and there are dull white, Light Copper, Peach and Dark Brown colors in my pallete. all the colors look very natural. The texture is very smooth and the shadow glides very well. The lasting power is also very good and lasts upto almost whole day.
it would have been best if they would have provide applicator and the case's plastic is also of cheap quality.
but these negative points can be ignored :)
I definatley recomend this product..
As with most cream eyeshadows... specifically those from pharmacies.. I knew this was going to be sheer and crease if not set with a powder... With that said, I set out to purchase this as a sort of eyeshadow base to intensify eyeshadow powders that are put on top. For that.. it works very well. I bought a few pallets in various colors and when used with a primer underneath, and a powdered color on top to set it can and does make color pop. The two pallets I have are shimmery, so they give a depth when I add a matte color on top.
Colors, packaging and price are all good BUT even with a primer underneath, I get creasing and the colors don't look good beyond 3-4 hours of wear. My lids aren't even that oily usually either.
Works for me, but I don't have oily lids, so it doesn't seem to crease as much. I also wear my shadow fairly sheer anyway, so I'm thinking this creme is best if you don't want strong color. Works well for sheer and makes an okay base, though I prefer E.LF.'s creme shadows as base.
I have the black magic palette, that comes with a shimmery white-silver, shimmery black, Shimmery magenta-purple, and a plain white.
Pros: Like the others on here, I think this is an awesome, affordable base that can make colorful powder shadows look crazy great. It is buildable... if you're very careful.
Cons: I don't know how to apply this to avoid clumps and have control of where the product goes. Fingers eliminate the clumps, but it ends up all over and sheer, so I typically use a sponge wand. It does settle into creases like nothing I've ever seen, but then again, this is my first shadow. The cream isn't very creamy, either- more like thick, sticky vaseline. And the color payoff, with minimal effort, is inexistent.
But even though there are more cons than pros, I do plan on buying more from this line. I'm not entirely sure why I like these so darned much, but I do.
These cream shadows do not stay on long at all. Especially if you have oily lids. The colors do look good and are buildable but it doesn't last.
I have 3 of these Quads. They are sooo pretty. They have good color pay off. I haven;t had a problem with creasing so long as I use a primer underneath. these are good on their own or as bases.
