I have 4 eyeshadows from this line. Nude slip, Polished Bronze, Shimmering Sienna and Platinum Glimmer. And I am in love with them all! I wear Nude Slip or Polished Bronze to work everyday. It creases without a primer, however, thats because I have extremely oily lids. With a primer they stay put the whole day. Shimmering Sienna looks great in the crease and the outer corner with Nude Slip. Very nicely blendeable. All in all, I am totally in love with these and am planning to buy the one shade that I do not have "Peacock Lustre".

Picked this up at a discount store for 99 cents in Polished Bronze. I thought if it didn't work out, I'm not out much money. What a pleasant surprise. It is a little shimmery but coupled with the bronze/coppery shade on my hazel eyes, BAM. The big plus is that it's a strong color, stays put all day and nite w/o primer. So many shadows just fade whether I use primer or not. I will find other colors to try that's for sure. I hope it's still around. It's worth a try.

I love this eyeshadow. It is very pigmented for a drugstore brand. It lasts all day, works as an eyeshadow or a powder liner. It has a little bit of sparkle, but it isn't like *boom!* blinding sparkles! it's more of a light shimmer. Like,"oh, hey, there's sparkle there." It adds a nice accent without being overwhelming.

I purchased a bunch of these at a Revlon sale recently. I can't belive the amazing colour payoff on these suckers. They are just as pigmented as the MAC eyeshadows. I wear it with a primer (extremly greasy eyelids) and it lasts all day! Right now my favourite shade is 030 platinum glimmer. Give this shade a go and you may just fall in love with it :)

Love these eyeshadows. Go on great! Really pigmented for a drug store brand.

I was so happy to discover these shadows a while back and have nearly collected them all by now. I have:
(Matte) Rich Sable: A smooth, velvety deep brown, perfect for a natural look for my Indian skin tone.
(Matte) Aubergine: A deep plum that is beautiful for dark eyes.
(Matte) Riviera Blue: A navy blue shade, also wonderful for dark brown eye colors.
(Satin) Polished Bronze: A coppery color with a little shimmer, which I prefer (less cakey than matte and more sophisticated than sparkle,) and a great highlighter shade for inner corner and/or brow bone.
(Satin) Shimmering Sienna: Another gorgeous brown. (Although, really, I have enough brown eyeshadows already.)
(Satin) Platinum Glimmer: A steel gray shadow perfect for smoky eyes, with a slight shimmer. Probably one of my favorites.
(Satin) Peacock Lustre: A teal-blue-green hybrid, absolutely stunning. Perfect to be worn on its own as a statement color.
(Perle) Black Galaxy: A black shade with some sparkle, great as a powder eyeliner or for smoky eyes. Somehow the sparkle is more toned down with this shade.
(Perle) Glistening Snow: Probably a very lovely color, but a bad shade decision on my part, the sparkling white makes me look like some kind of snow queen (and not in a good way, in a Halloween costume way.) In general I prefer the matte and satin shades better than the Perle. Excepting Black Galaxy I would reserve the perles for evening and wear the mattes and satins to work.
Overall these shadows have beautiful shades and a nice smooth texture. Be careful not to drop the compacts though or the shadow will shatter (same with the Revlon Customeyes palettes.) Also use your own shadow brush as the included sponge tip breaks easily. But as for the actual shadow I very highly recommend.

This review is the for Sunlit Sparkle shade, a perle formula. Quite disappointed. No pigmentation really, when applied on my eyes, there's a barely there yellow cast with scattered shimmers. Doesn't look too flattering on me (NC20). I also have a few of the other shades, and I have to say that I appreciate those more than this particular shade, enough that I decided to write this review.

The shadow I bought was the Matte one in Peach Sorbet.
I liked the color, it's a very natural skin tone with a bit of pink on it. The problem is that it is a bit chalky, and I can't work it easily when I put this on.
Its staying power is not very good but if you put an es primer it lasts for a long time.
In overall, it's a bit expensive for its quality even though it's not bad.

This will be a mixed review of the Perle finish eyeshadows LILAC SHIMMER and VIOLET STARLET. The 2 es came in a pack and I had a $1 off coupon for Target, so I spent under $3 for both. The pigmentation of both are very nice, but I would recommend a es primer for intensity. Thinking these are "Perle/Pearl" finishes, I thought there would be a shimmer/frost type finish, but i was totally wrong. LILAC SHIMMER IS A GLITTER BOMB! this es totally sucks even though the color payoff is great, the glitter falls all over the place and i had to literally scratch them off my cheeks with my nails b/c makeup remover and brushes could not, and I still have glitter stuck on my face!!! You can't see the glitter from the outside of the package, but once you start swiping, you see huge glitter. VIOLET STARLET is totally different, I actually like this one. It has that shimmer finish, but i don't think it's an actual "pearl" finish...it looks matte w/ shimmer/very fine glitter in it...lilac shimmer is a light purple while violet starlet is a dark purple. I am wearing the 2 colors today to see how long they last, but i have a feeling i might have to take it off b/c of all the glitter fallout and my eyes getting irritated! ugh...so i give a 3 b/c it's great colors, but bad glitter...and i only spent $2 and some cents on both. I think if lilac shimmer did not have the the glitter, it would be a great es, and if violet starlet was more of a pearl finish, it would be great, I don't understand how both are named with the same finish but have totally different textures and finishes.

Product at a Glance:
Rafi's Rating: 4/5 for the Satin, 3/5 for the Matte
Pros: Gorgeous satin finish, Longlasting, Very Smooth
Cons: Little variety of colors, Overpriced, Mattes are a little chalky
A while back I found one of these singles on sale at CVS and fell in love. So obviously I can't speak for all the eyeshadows in this line, since I only own three: two matte ones in Pink Innocence and Peach Sorbet and a satin in Nude Slip.
These singles basically come in three finishes: matte, perle, and satin.The colors for perle were a little crazy for me and their sparkles didn't look too appealing. The satins on the other hand just look like such pretty colors I wanted to buy them all up.
The matte ones are amazingly soft. Can you use that word to decribe eyeshadows...? I just love the texture of it. The pigmentation is all right, nothing remarkable. Actually it's kind of chalky so the color kind of smudges instantaneously. I'm not incredibly impressed with the color payoff, but if you can find this on sale, I think it's worth having in a collection :]
My favorite is Nude Slip (a satin). I've used it everyday for like the past month haha. It's sooo pigmented and blendeable, and leaves that gorgeous metallic sheen. I don't need any eyshadow base and the staying duration is decent...with absolutely no creasing!
The one from the satin line is the closest to department store quality that I've gotten with drugstore eyeshadows. Overall, they're great eyeshadows especially for the drugstore (I would say by FAR better than the Covergirl ones) but I would say that they're a little overpriced at retail, so if you ever catch them on sale (like the 75% off sale CVS is having right now)...snatch them up immediately!

I have Black Galaxy and peacock lustre. The former looks like my Lancome e/s in Constellation. Peacock Lustre looks so pretty! Love them both!
For my full review:
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Black, Curly, Fine Eyes: Brown
I purchased the Revlon Luxurious Color eyeshadow in "Black Galaxy" to replace a stark, shimmery black eyeshadow by E.L.F. (from their Smokey Eye kit) that I'd somehow managed to drop in a cup of drink, and I wasn't very happy with it at all.
First off, It's a bit pricey for a single eyeshadow, and they have you believing that you get much more than you actually do because the packaging's tactical design. Sneaky, sneaky. Now, this color looked beautiful in the package- just as stark and shimmery as the E.L.F. shadow that I thought I'd ruined. It LOOKS like it's very pigmented and exceptionally shimmery, but once applied, this, like so many other black eyeshadows, applied more like a medium gray or charcoal. The shimmer wasn't even very evident on skin. The texture was average, and you didn't need to break the shadow up with a plow to get any out of the pan, which was nice. But you've still got to REALLY pile this stuff on to get anywhere close to how it looks in the pan.
In the store I was hoping that this wouldn't be the case as these shadows are advertised (that's just it- advertised) as being highly pigmented and you pay the price for something supposedly so stark when you compare this to other brands' single eyeshadows. Don't be fooled, it's just an average black!

I bought this eyeshadow in Peacock Lustre. Looked really nice in the package. It's a really soft, smooth shadow, so I have no complaints in terms of the texture. But I can't say I like the pigmentation. It's definitely not as saturated in the pan and eventually, you can blend the shadow until it's pretty much gone. Not bad since it was on sale for 4.99CAD. Packaging is a little flimsy.

I bought this in the Satin finish: Shimmering Sienna and Polished Bronze. I think the quality is great and would go back and get Platinum Glimmer. Polished Bronze is close to my skin tone, but it doesn't really do anything for me--maybe paired with something else...

I was really excited when I first heard about these over at the Nouveau Cheap bog(best blog ever btw).I was even more excited when I saw them at the store the other day.I picked up Glistening Snow(perle),Black Galaxy(perle),Violet Starlet(perle),Nude Slip(satin).The only other two I wanted was Platinum Shimmer(satin)and peacock Lustre(satin)and they were out.Out of the four that I bought two went back(Nude Slip & Violet Starlet) for a refund.
Nude Slip is a beautiful color that would look good all by itself.It has slight shimmer and great pigmentation.I just didn't like this color on me.It was just too warm for my fair,cool tone skin and looked a bit orange on me.Ladies with darker skin or who have a tan would look great with this on!
Violet Starlet has tiny glitter in it.I had the most fallout with this one.The glitter could be better milled,but it makes up for it in pigmentation and smooth application.For me the color was misleading.In the pan it looked like a dark purple,but this goes on lighter and has pink undertones to it which I don't like.If you like lighter purples and pinks don't be afraid of the dark color in the pan,it will look lighter.
Black galaxy is one of the best blacks that can be found at the drugstore.There is fallout from this one as well,but not bad.Once applied it is not as shimmery as it appears.Works great as a liner too.Try It!
Glistening Snow has little to no fallout and I swear it could be related to MAC's Crystal Avalanche eyeshadow.The perfect off-white color for the inner corner or tear duct.If you like or wanted Cystal Avalanche check this one out as it makes a pretty good dupe.I swatched them side by side and they are very similar.Crystal Avalanche gives more coverage and is more shimmery than glittery.Glistening Snow goes on more sheer and has small microglitter.This one seems to be better milled than Violet Starlet was.I wouldn't use this as a brow bone highlighter only because I like more matte shadows in that area,but if you like shimmery shades there this one would work well.Application is rich and smooth.Goes on almost like butter.
All in all I'm really happy about these new little DS gems and they are all worth checking out.I did check No for the would I buy again only because the amount you get is a pretty good size and a little goes a long way with these shadows and I have a feeling I won't need to.

I have a bad habit of buying drug store makeup and then I don't like it - but this shadow lived up to the hype on the makeup board. I bought a satin shadow, in Polished Bronze. I applied it with a Smashbox large shadow brush to my lower lid, smudging into the crease and up to the outer corner of my brow. The shadow was nice and soft, the brush picked up the pigment easily, and applied smoothly and evenly with plenty of color on the lid. The shadow wore very well over an art deco eye shadow base. This is a nice color to add to my neutrals, and I hope they expand the color selection.

I bought Nude Slip and simply adore it. It has a bit of shimmer as it is a Satin, however 'grown up'. Perfect nude/neutral color for my lid, near the color of my skintone - maybe slightly darker. Lasts long with my UDPP and is a great wash for day or night. No chalkiness, no drying, no glitter. This is comparable to the texture of some of the HE e/s I own for a fraction of the price. I will buy this again as well as check out a few of the other colors.

I was super excited when I saw these new eyeshadows from Revlon because I loved their matte line and thought these would be of similar quality. I waited for them to go on BOGOF sale and picked up four colors: Black Galaxy (perle), Polished Bronze (satin), Nude Slip (satin) and Sunlit Sparkle (perle). The satin formulas have silver shimmer to them almost to the point of looking metallic in pan, but not nearly as much on the eye. The perle formula looks extremely sparkly in the pan, but comes off like a matte shadow with some glitter. They cost about $5 apiece.
Overall, I'm a little disappointed. I purchased mostly neutral shades in the hopes of wearing them everyday, but I honestly find them a little hard to work with, or at least, more difficult than my usual WetnWild shadows. I find that they are less pigmented and not as soft as my comparable WnW shimmery shades. In addition, the Sunlit Sparkle color is not pigmented AT ALL, not even over TFSI. I find that I get a lot of shimmer/glitter fallout as well with these. I've even noticed leaving some behind on my boyfriend's face when I hug/kiss him (WTF)!
I'm just not impressed. They aren't the worst shadows out there, but they certainly aren't the best. If you're looking for cheap but quality drugstore e/s, I suggest picking up all the WnW palettes before they're discontinued. Instead of 1 color, you get 8 for the same price. I think I'm going to return them all. Sorry, Revlon.

I hardly ever write reviews,but couldn't resist for this product. I have almost every shade, and they are to die for! They are very pigmented, and the color selection is great. An added bonus if you get them o n a bogo! Rush to the drugstore and see for yourself!

I couldn't resist this when I saw it (no wonder I'm broke!). I bought it in black. It looks very glittery in the pan, but when I use it (strictly in the crease and outer corner of the eye), it's not too bad. More importantly, it does NOT fall all over your face. And since I use it so sparingly, it's going to last me forever. The other colors also looked very pretty.
