shade / bone; a matte color with slightly yellow undertone. -uses / for this shade, i use it for brow bone, inner corner, and lid for dimension. i also use it to set my nude waterline.-pigmentation / pretty bad! I have to put a lot of effort in order to make the color even show up, and it's not just the very top surface.-price / it's not a great deal since it's around $3 for this amount, but I got it on sale for about 99 cents plus tax at walgreens. I like the idea of linking them together!-texture / it's quite powdery, and it's really annoying. it's definitely not creamy...-results / it's patchy, but I actually like the subtle - ness of the color. -staying power / not that good, but what can I say for the price? it fades off but I'm not left with eye shadow all over my face.-favorite use / to set my eyeliner on my waterline. It's not all that pigmented but the eyeliner already does that for me! I just use this to set using the eco tools angled eyeliner / brow brush in the dual ended brushes set.-what i love / I've been looking for a natural brow bone and inner corner eyeshadow for so long! and it's drugstore! I couldn't find the wet n wild matte white single shadow, and I didn't want a whole palette just for this so yeah :)))-thanks for reading, I hope this was helpful. Results may vary according to the shade you get.-check out my instagram @tbhaudio, I post music for you all to use for makeup tutorial videos! Have a nice day xx

Just as some other reviewers, I was excited about cute tiny eyeshadows and that I could buy only those colors I needed, and that they were matte! After using two (matte purple and bone), I am returning them. Colors are nice but by the time I applied the amount of shadow so at least some color was visible, I had too much shadow on my cheeks :( I'm very disappointed because I really wanted to like these eyeshadow links.

I have the khaki color in the pearl finish. So far, I'm very happy with it. I'm surprised at the poor reviews. It's a greenish color and I really like it. With a primer (I use marykay) it lasts all day. The price is great, and I think it's worth a try. I hope you like it.

I was looking for a minty green/ turqoise shadow and came across this at Ulta. STAY AWAY! The shadow is not pigmented and it is tiny for the price. It is a chalky mess.

When I logged onto Makeupalley to write a review about this product I was absolutely amazed at the low rating! I think these shadows are not only fabulous but the idea behind them is incredibly innovative. Of course, this is just my opinion so in no way do I mean to disregard other review; different strokes for different folks I suppose :)I purchased #280 Java (pearl) & #270 Chocolate (matte)Cons:1)Uneven: I only have one real issue with this product for one shadow which is the way that "chocolate" applies. Even when swatched on my hand, the colour falls short of pigmentation even before the swatch is finished. The colour applies on the eye lid a little uneven, but that can easily be fixed with blending. I have a bit of an issue with blending as my eyes are more sensitive than most. So if you are like me, stay clear of the matte colours. Using them wet also didn't help as the colour was still patchy. Pros:1) Price: I bought both of these shadows for only $3.49/each regular price at Rexall/Pharma Plus. If you live here in Canada you'll know that Rexall usually has about a 10-30% price increase from most stores, for example- L'Oreal True match is $22 at rexall while only $16 at Loblaws. So a shadow that is less than $5 from this store is more than reasonable and affordable for all. I suppose the US equivalent is like CVS vs Walmart (?)2)Colours: Purples, Pinks, greens, etc. This line has a lot of desirable colours, those of which are usually only offered with a heavy price tag. Electric colours aside, Revlon has also done a great job of offering many different browns and neutrals. From what I can recall, there are about 3 or 4 browns and about 5 neutrals (of couse "neutral" depends on you skin tone, but I mean more champagne/cream)Here's a more in-depth description of the two colours I have:Java- a STUNNING brown with a rose-y undertone. Dont get me wrong, it's still brown but the undertone is more warm/pink vs neutral or cool. There's two components of thie shadow: 1) the undertone is a brown-pink (more brown than pink) with a pearl finish. Nothing harsh; it's almost bordering a fine-milled highlight. On top is a beautiful mixure of pink, silver and gold sparkles. Nothing disco-y or obnoxious, just a beautiful eye-catching mixture. (the gold is the finest sparkles..it's more of a pearl, the pink second, and the silver the largest) ***If you are anywhere close to a NW/NC 35 and up, this would make a great neutral colour for everyday.2)Chocolate- more disappointing. Most definitely a cool-tone brown with grey undertones. I think they should have named this taupe-brown or something because that's how it comes off. On lighter skin this could look more brown..but too harsh. On olive skin like mine, it will come off more cool/taupe. And darker skin might find it's too ashy. If you're anywhere between a NW25-NW35/40 if feel like you'd like it. Could also be used as contour if you're the right skin tone.**Forgot to add: what you see is what you get in the pan, but I would highly recommend that you look at these colours in natural light before purchasing as it is more true to colour. 3) Links- This is genius. The idea behind linking your custom shadows is great. I travel a lot and often don't want to carry bulky, $60 shadow palette in a suitcase that is being thrown around like a cirque du soleil performer. I only carry these two colours and a tiny rimmel palette when I travel, as this is all I need. The links also stay on tightly and don't break apart. 4) Application: The Java shadow went on like a dream. Honestly, when I first applied it I had to go outside to see if it was actually on my lid because I refused to believe that a shadow could apply so evenly, creamy, and effortlessly; I didn't even have to blend this out. The shadows stayed on all day even with my oily lids. They didn't look as great at the end of the day vs when I initially applied them, but that's understandable. I have really wrinkly eyelids/a lot of space for eyeshadow. I didn't find that the shadow emphasized my crevices or make my eye lids even more wrinkly. I will admit though, the fallout isn't the best so make sure to hold a tissue under your eyes when applying or apply before your foundation/concealer. Overall: I love these.

Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks are individual eyeshadows that can be linked or interlocked to make your own custom mix & match palette; there is a lot of variety with 30 shades & 4 different finishes - satin, pearl, matte, & metallic. I only picked up one ($1.60) since I haven't tried these before & didn't want to build a palette without knowing whether or not I'd like them. I bought shade Onyx 300, which is black with silver sparkles. It actually reminds me of MAC Pigment in the shade Dark Soul or MAC Eye Shadow in shade Black Tied.This shadow is powdery (be careful of fallout) & is poorly pigmented. There's only color payoff if it's really packed up, which I can't/won't do because I wear prescription contacts & makeup or debris in my eye = infection. It also isn't true to color; Onyx looks dark gray or gunmetal. When I try to blend it, it disappears & leaves glitter in its place. It isn't long lasting on my oily skin & even priming my eyelids with a Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer (anti-crease shadow primer) doesn't make a difference. In a couple hours, I looked like I stepped out of a meth lab. Let's just say I'm glad I got one to try out & it only cost $1. I'm simply giving it 3 lipsticks because I decided this can only be used as eyeliner. I'm disappointed, but it's not a total waste.

I was in a pinch, had to stay overnight in the city due to snowstorm. So I picked up one of these in a khaki green shade at a drugstore. Price was good. The shadow however, was awful. I have never experienced such horrible fall out. But the shadow wouldn't seem to apply well to my eyelids. I had more shadow from fall out on my cheekbones than on my eyelids.I was very disappointed and this will be going in the garbage. I have never had much luck with Revlon shadows and this clinched it. I can get reasonably priced USABLE shadows from NYX.

Never buy this product!! Ever. I thought this eyeshadow would be perfect for traveling as they come in such small packaging and when i bought it, it was also on sale but its horrible. The shadow would just fall right off of my eye and it did not blend at all.

I bought these because they were on sale for 1.99$ at my local drugstore.Ever since I found out mac dovefeather was discontinued, I've been looking for a dupe of my favorite shadow what is not long time gone.I saw this called purple and plum it says both were matte colors, so I bought them to give it a try. I though the matte purple could replace dovefeather. I was so wrong! The colors does look very nice in the pan, but they are so unpigmented, i think its the worst eye shadow i seen in my entire life!There is a ridiculous amount of fall out, you end up with more eye shadow on your face then on your eyes.I decided to give it a few more tries and I discovered that the ONLY way to apply this eye shadow so it shows on your lids without any fall-outs is with a q-tips. I manages to get a nice look using plum in the crease. But when I looked in the mirror about 2hrs later, i was all gone like I never put any make-up on. Wow... this eyeshadow is really loosing... If I couldn I would give it negative lippies.And Im actually pissed off I wasted 4$ + tax on these... com'on. These are made to be bought and throw away, there is not one person here that likes them. And if someone gave 5 lippies they were paid by revlon to write a positive comment.Update:I tried them using LA splash eye shadow primer ( wish I love )' you absolutely need to put an other eyeshadow first over the primer or the result is super blotchy and very hard to blend The amount of fall out is seriously not worth the effort.

I've always love most of Revlon products but I'm terribly upset with this particular eyeshadow. I was super excited because the colour was pretty nice when I first swatch them on my hand. But then when I tried to use it with my brush, the color doesn't transfer on my eyelid. Bought two of it in the colour Eggplant and Melon. I love the small packaging. Great for travelling. But why do you need it for travelling if it fails to do its job.
