Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow~Moonlit



I will start off by saying that I am not in love with this product, but I do not dislike it. After looking at all of the palettes, I went with Moonlit. The pigmentation is so-so and there is a good deal of shimmer. However, I just swatched these about 10 min ago and I already notice a reduction in pigment and shimmer. So you definitley need to wear a primer with these.  I wore this palette to class a few days ago with primer(Stila's Prime Pot) and they did last all day with minor reduction in color. The number one thing I dislike about this product is the feel of the shadow. It is not soft and smooth but powdery and somewhat gritty(especially the top two shades). The bottom two perform better for me as they are a little more smooth and easier to work with. The pigmentation is also a little bit better. I would rate this a 3.5 out of 5. It is not my favorite product, but it works well enough for me to keep using it.

  1. Great review! Strange that the texture is different between the shades but from the swatches the colors look pretty :)

    1. I thought that was really odd, too. They are pretty colors and last, so I can work with it =)

  2. The pigmentation is suckish but I love the colors. Before I read your review I was taking note of the brand so I could get it, but I don't think I will. Awesome review(:

    1. Tne colors are really pretty and they can be worked with, but I would skip buying it since it is underwhelming. And I followed your blog =)

  3. Blah, I hate Revlon eyeshadows so much. I bought the quad in Siren and... ugh. I'm selling it in my shop now since I just can't stand to have it in my room, hahah.

    1. Lol. I'm not much of a Revlon fan in general. The only product by them that I really love so far are the lip butters.

    2. I like some of their lipsticks and a mascara. Everything else just doesn't appeal to me.

  4. The colors look so pretty!!!.. too bad they don't work as well on the eyes.. I had a revlon 16 color stay quad before and did not like the color pay off at all.. i ended up giving it away to my cousin that was just starting with make up.
