Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow Quad in Adventurous

These quads are relatively new and retail for about $10 CAD, depending on where you look (WalMart, Shoppers Drug Mart, etc).

The claim is that these eyeshadows will last on your eyelids for at least 16 hours.

I tried using these eyeshadows alone on my eyelids, but as they can get oily throughout the day, they creased quite quickly. I then tried using a primer underneath (Lid Primer from Performance Colors) and I noticed a big difference. Not only did the eyeshadows appear more intense, they also apply more evenly.

These eyeshadows are very pigmented and soft. They are soft without having a lot of fall out, which is great.

The one I got is in 515 Adventurous and it has a light beige colour for a highlight. This highlight colour also has some gold shimmer in it.

The lid colour is an olive green, very comparable to Lancome's eyeshadow in Designer. The outer corner colour is a shimmery warm brown/copper colour and the crease colour is a matte chocolate brown.

As with most eyeshadows, I recommend using any kind of eye primer that you have, or even just a thin layer of creamy concealer (it works pretty much in the same way that a primer would).

I really like the quality of these eyeshadows and I didn't think it was possible that drugstore brands could keep improving upon what they've already come up with!

Unfortunately, this was the only colour combination that caught my eye, so hopefully they released more combinations in the future!
