REVIEW: Revlon Illuminance Creme Eyeshadow in Moonlit Jewels


This is a palette of four cream eyeshadows. I got it for free when I bought my Revlon ColorStay 12 Hour Eyeshadow Quad in Sterling Rose to try out atox's super fab smokey eye tutorial.

I haven't used a cream eyeshadow before, so my review may not be worth much. I really didn't like using a cream. My finger just isn't as precise an applicator as a good brush is. These seem to go on a little drier than my Fresh Cream Blush and a lot drier than my cream eyeliner, but I don't know if that is typical for eyeshadow vs. blush and liner.

The colors are very pretty, and a nice color payoff is easy to achieve without too much layering. I guess that overall I'm pretty meh about this product. It's not baaad, it's not good, IMO. But, as I said, it's my first cream eyeshadow so what do I know?

I used the far left color as a base and the second to the left in the crease. I put a little of the green in the crease, but it didn't really show up that much. I used Clinique Chocolate Luster cream eyeliner. Once again, I had issues with the lighting. Me = NOT the world's best photographer.

Holy shizz I'm a ghost!Holy shizz I'm a ghost!

Sheeeeeeeeeeew...yellow again.Sheeeeeeeeeeew...yellow again.

Same here Tina, I had the pinks & purples quads...jeez, back in high-school I think. I didn't mind them too much back then, and they were good for blending...but that's about all I remember.

i had this once, it's not bad. the color just never stayed for me and it just smudged all over the place.

I've got one of these quads - I use it sometimes for just a quick, sheer swipe of color when I'm feeling lazy. The thing I like about it is that I never get the dreaded crease when I use it. But I agree, it's meh.
