Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow
Availability: selected pharmacies and department stores
Revlon’s legendary ColorStay Eyeshadow now lasts an additional four hours for sixteen full hours of impactful, longwearing colour in both the hottest, runway-inspired and classic shades. With a luxurious, sleek new package, this is one beauty steal you’ll love showing off. ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow Quads also feature a new interior design. After extensive research into shade usage and colour combinations, Revlon re-tooled the inside of the palette, resulting in four different pan sizes proportionate to usage. The lighter base shade pan is larger, while accent shades are a bit smaller. What’s more, an easy-to-follow roadmap for flawless application is included on the back of every palette.
What we say:
‘I am one of those people who tend to wear bright colour eye shadow or go completely natural with just some mascara. So I was a little unsure how to create the desired brown smoky-eye. However, Revlon have anticipated this and put an easy-to-follow diagram on the back of the compact that shows you the steps you need to ensure you get it right from the first try.
‘You can make this look as subtle or as bold as you would like, simply by using more or less of one colour. I decided to start out conservatively with the 505 Decadent pan and focused more on the lighter shades in the compact. I liked the way it highlighted my eyes and didn’t make them look too dark. This is definitely a look I can wear during the day. Because it is long-lasting, a quick touch up in the evening and by adding more of the dark brown shade you have a great evening look and are ready for a night on the town.
‘This is a must-have for any lady’s handbag, even if you’re not looking to achieve a full smoky-eye, the colour pallet is very versatile and on one occasion I only used the lightest shade, which is a great highlighter, with some eyeliner and mascara to give me a clean natural look in 60 seconds. I would recommend this product to all of my friends without a shadow of a doubt.’
