Revlon Colorstay 12 hour Eye Shadow Quad In Sultry Smoke Review

Hello ladies
I am personally very sorry for my recent hiatus, which has been due to my terrible cold and cough but it seems to be getting better now, hence, I definitely hope to be more active on the blog. Nowadays, almost everyone loves having smoky eye makeup on, however, to successfully achieve a smoky eye without looking like a raccoon is no easy task. Something that can help in improving your chances of succeeding to achieve this look is having great quality eye shadows meant for the specific purpose. About a year ago, I was passing through this phase where I just bought every smoky eye kit I could lay my eyes on. The Revlon colorstay quad was one of my prey and today I will be reviewing my Revlon Colorstay 12 hour Eye Shadow Quad In Sultry Smoke.

My thoughts on the Revlon Colorstay 12 hour Eye Shadow Quad In Sultry Smoke:
I am a huge fan of Revlon products and I think that Revlon is one of the best drugstore makeup brands in terms of quality. I bought this eyeshadow quad specifically because it was the blue that caught my eye. I tried a couple different looks with the quad and initially they all turned out ugly but after a few more tries I learnt how to work with the colors to get them looking their best. The colors in the quad are an icy silvery lavender with , a deep electric blue, a gun metal grey with lots of silver and green shimmer particles and a carbon black. All the colors except the grey have a metallic finish.

The quality of the Revlon Colorstay 12 hour Eye Shadow Quad eye shadows is impressive. They have a smooth and supremely velvety texture and are deeply pigmented. A little bit goes quite a long way with these colors, especially when it comes to the charcoal and black. I find that blending these eye shadows can be a bit difficult and takes a little extra while as compared to most good quality eye shadows but as long as you are patient, they give you the desired result. The staying power of these eye shadows is great. Although they don’t last for 12 hours, on me they easily stay for 7 hours without a primer and 9+ hours with my UDPP and then they start to fade slowly. Another positive is their wide range of colors. They have 18 quads available as of now and if I could, I would have literally bought all of them since the colors are just gorgeous! Along with each quad, there are 2 small sponge tip applicators.

One drawback to the Revlon Colorstay 12 hour Eye Shadow Quad is that the electric blue isn’t as vibrant as it initially looked in the pan. On swatching, it comes off a little dull blue with a metallic finish. This was a slight disappointment for me since it was the bright blue color in the pan, that dragged me towards buying this product however, I still love the how the color looks.
