I was really excited to get this Revlon ColorStay quad in Silver Fox, which is part of the autumn/winter range. I really liked the mix of colours, especially the mint green colour. I also like the fact that the quad includes a highlight colour so that you can do a full eye look from one product, unlike some (yes Urban Decay BoS III - I mean you).
I've done an eye of the day using just this product. The light grey colour is all over my lower lid, the grey/plum colour in my crease and outer-v, the white as a highlight for my brow bone and inner eye, and the mint under my lower lashes. Apologies for the mascara failure onto my lids - I should have covered it up with eyeliner!
So what do I think of this product? Well for £5.99 it's not a bad price and I like the colours. BUT, and it is a big but, the shadows are not very good quality, although they are quite pigmented. Maybe I've been spoiled by Urban Decay and Mac, but I found them to be flakey, powdery and full of fall out. They are also really hard to blend and to get an even application. I found myself over-blending which left me with a slightly muddy look. I also found that even using UDPP, they tend to separate out a bit as the day goes on.
So on the plus side, it's a cheap and cheerful quad, with lovely colours and you can do a full look from it. However, I'd expect better quality from Revlon, and ovarall, I wasn't impressed with this.
What are your experiences with Revlon? I find them a bit hit or miss myself!
Thanks for reading. xx
