Colors are beautiful, but it applied unevenly (i.e. it was streaky and needed the color built up). The texture was nice and creamy, but the application was so time consuming I wouldn't purchase this again. It had medium staying power (it wore off slightly during the day, but still passable without a touch up). I used this mostly as an eyeliner or for highlighting the inner corners of my eyes. This didn't offer good coverage over the enter eyelid, but as eyeliner along the lash line it was okay. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone though.

Actually, my mom gave this to me like 4 years ago. I really don't like it. It creases like CR-AZY ! I'm telling you, don't buy this. Plus, I find the application kinda streaky. You can't build up the color. Anyway, I will try to finish this cause I don't like to waste stuff but I will NEVER buy it again.

First of all, these shadow shouldnt even be called shadows. They look absolutely beautiful in the package but they ultimately fail in their purpose as eyeshadow.
HOWEVER, when these are used as an eyeshadow base (over primer of course) these can be a godsend and a true treasure for amateurs and pros alike. Typically, I like to use a long-lasting foundation on my eyelids like Revlon Colorstay because it usually holds up pretty well on my relatively oily eyelids. That and considering I use a thin layer of the creme shadow, which i find is the trick to preventing these from creasing, definitely helps my eyeshadow stay fresh and vibrant all day. I usually pair these with my WnW blue palette or my Jesse's Girl eye dusts. My only problem is that the creme shadow never dries up and it's waaaay too creamy for oily eylids so if you're an oiy girl, these probably won't work for you unless you have something to help it last.
In terms of color, Revlon did good. I like this palette and that it has blue, green, and red shades from more adventurous looks and a more neutral shimmery pink, sort of like MAC's Bare Study pp for lazy days. For this, I give it four lippies.

I don't usually buy creme shadows because I have oily lids and they usually just melt off, but I got these as a present and I figured I'd give them a try. I didn't use any primer (probably a big mistake), and applied the creme shadows on my lids, and applied shadow on top of it. Before adding the shadow, though, I noticed that these blended terribly. Very soon after applying the creme shadows, they creased. Badly. Even with the shadow over top of them. The pigmentation wasn't awful, so I may end up using them as gel liners in the future. But as eye shadows? All kinds of bad.

I got this at Dubai Duty free - it was pretty cheap and I thought I'd test it out tonight.
I tried it with Nyx jumbo pencil in Milk as a base (which works for my usual shadows), wore a different colour (blue and light brown) on each eye and decided to wait. The temperature was a steady and cool 27 degrees C so I wasn't sweating and my activity consisted mostly of browsing the net and talking to the dog.
AND YET: There was creasing only 20 minutes later. The blue lid was an oily mess with the colour all goopy. The brow, even more so. Even the edges of my lid, where liner usually goes and the part that usually holds colour the best, looked kind of watered down and washed out.
What kind of crappy product is this? I can't wear it anywhere now and I'd hate to give it away to anyone. What's going on Revlon?

I have a love/hate relationship with these cream eyeshadow quads from Revlon. Moonlit Jewels was the first one that I bought, and for only 5 bucks, which makes it very affordable. Moonlit Jewels includes a gorgeous dark cobalt blue, a rich forest green, a golden-bronze brown, and a creamy pinky gold pearl.
Revlon's Cream Illuminance eyeshadows are crease-monsters from hell. This quad is really a vivid array of opportunities, but for lack of a better word, the quality of these cream eyeshadows suck. Upon application, I was completely taken away by the beauty of the colors; they were nearly metallic, very pigmented, provided full coverage, and went on very easy. To my surprise, they were also very blendable and light on my eyelids. So what makes them suck? They never, ever dry. The way the cream goes on is a dream, but it will stay creamy, which leads to creasing within an hour. I wore a look with Moonlit Jewels to work, and I was excited because the look was beautiful. But once I was in front of a mirror I was horrified by the streaks and creasing. Wearing these eye shadows is easy, if you don't mind touching up every hour - but I have no patience for that, as I think most of us don't. These do NOT work well by themselves, which is unfortunate. They are so pretty, it makes me so mad!
However, these are AMAZING as a base for eyeshadow! That is the "love" part of my love/hate relationship. These creams don't dry, but once you put a powder eyeshadow over them, it will set the cream and will no longer be oily. They work better than a primer and truly bring out the best of your powder eyeshadows; it makes any glitter or shimmer in your eyeshadows stick, and makes them last a very long time on your lids. This is the only possible way to use the Illuminance Creme line, unless Revlon steps up their game to make a better, non-creasing formula. Until then, they can only be hidden under a layer of my other beloved powder eyeshadows.

LOVE the colors but the formula sucks. It creases and tend to be very sheer at times. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone and the packaging still sucks

These don't stay on and are a little harder to apply than other cream shadows I've tried. Perhaps these are better with a primer, but I look to other cream shadows that can serve as better bases.

I love these! The only down side is that they dont stay on very good thats the only reason i gave it a four. You really need to use a primer with these but they are beautiful with a touch of sparkle.

Oddly enough, i really like the Illuminance cream eyeshadows when i didn't expect to like them at all. I've been using this particular quad the most lately. the bronze color on the far left gives me a bronzy sheen on my lids (on top of UDPP of course). the cream e/s itself is super soft and creamy, and very pigmented as far as i can tell. it blends smoothly over my lids.
However I did hear that they crease easily, possibly due to how well it blends. for me, i have asian monolid eyes (not very hooded) and i don't have particularly oily lids, therefore these cream shadows worked great over UDPP.
personally i find these cream shadows easier to work with than Benefit's Creaseless e/s. I have the Benefit in Recess, and while it's known to be crease resistant, I find it to be not as easy to blend and not as soft as the Illuminance.

I LOVE these creme shadows. They work amazingly as a base for powder eyeshadows. The colors are absolutely gorgeous. They make my eyeshadows much more brighter and more intense. They make my eyeshadow stay longer and they do not crease on me.
Would definitely repurchase. Such a great value as well!

I've had this quad for about 4 years now, use it pretty regularly, and there's still a nice amount left. At first, I would just use the first (champagne) and second (deep sultry brown) colours on my lid and crease respectively when I was in a rush. This combo is beautiful and stays very well with a nice base. The other two colours, which are a gorgeous jade and and navy went largely untouched. Oh, how I regret that! These colours are so pigmented and blend nicely on the lid and provide a rich, fall-inspired jeweled look. I'd recommend this most for brown as, it really brings out all the different tones brown eyes tend to have. Of course, these are also a lovely base (with primer underneath) to make your powder shadows stick and "POP".
Buy again?: Yes
PS - The packaging doesn't allow the shadows to dry out, which is always a plus!

I love this. I got this same quad years ago before I really knew anything about makeup, and now here I am, back again. I'm glad Revlon still makes this quad. It's gorgeous. I use the gold color for everything, the darker colors look great too in combo or alone, and I use them as bases sometimes. The blue as a base can really turn a purple eyeshadow from a 'normal' purple to a gorgeous deep tanzanie blue violet hue which I love (for me, MAC odd couple in particular). Versatile as a stand alone product or in combination with others and def. worth the price at less than 5 bucks. Doesn't crease much but it's cream so don't expect the world in that regard, its a cream ;)

good quality, good for foundation, the color is not so very obvious as it seems to be.
but maybe I have choose the wrong color, there are too heavy for me( I always wear light make up)

This is a creme shadow palette with 4 different jewel-tone shades; a shimmery taupe, a shimmery burgundy, a shimmery green, and a shimmery blue. They work well as a base for eyeshadow, and alone.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Other Eyes: Hazel
These are very good cream bases. I do use a primer first but they are great for making an eyeshadow stick and more vibrant. I haven't had any problems with creasing.
Age: Unknown Skin: Other, Neutral Hair: Other Eyes: Other
The colors are fantastic and they last a very long time AS LONG AS you set it with a little (translucent) powder,
otherwise yes, it creases within a couple hours...although I have oily skin so it may not crease as fast with everyone.
I will buy again :)

I love this palette! I like that it isn't from one colour family like a teal, turquoise, navy blue and etc all in one palette. This palette contains like a champagne colour, brown, green, and blue. None of them are too bright which is great for me. I use these as bases for my eyeshadow. However I do wear it with an eye primer as I heard that it wears off after awhile. The key is to not glob your eye with this cream. If you do, it will obviously crease! The key here is to apply a light layer. Having to apply this as an eye base, it made my eyeshadow pop even more. And I'm not exaggerating when I say that by the end of the day my eyeshadow looks the same! I've even taken pictures to compare. No creases, no fading. The bad thing about this creme shadows is probably the fact that it isn't too pigmented to be worn alone. Hence a wash of eyeshadow over it. (Which is fine by me actually) Another thing is that it isn't available in Singapore but that doesn't bother many of you anyway. Still, a 5 lippies product to me. I would definitely buy this again and in other colours as well.

This product burns my eyes and it doesn't last for a while. I've used it very little and it's almost out of the pan.
