Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow in Inspired and Adventurous Swatches & Review

Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow

Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow quads are a new product and come in 16 different shade options.

All the quads are color coordinated, offering great colors and up to 16 hours of wearing time. As to that claim, honestly I never pay attention. I wear a shadow primer every single day I wear shadow, no matter what kind of shadow it is, so nearly all of them last my entire day anyway.

On the back of the quads they show you one way you can wear all the colors via a number system. The shadows don’t have individual names. I got a cool-toned quad called Inspired and a warmer one called Adventurous.

Jessica Peacock Queen vs. Illusions d’ Ombre de Chanel Swatches, Photos & Comparison

Jessica Peacock Queen

Jessica Peacock Queen is a new collection of three iridescent and super shimmery nail colors.

These three nail colors may look very familiar to some of you. They are very similar to the Illusions d’ Ombre de Chanel collection from last fall. I think this collection was also supposed to be released last fall (the press release I have says fall ’11) but is just coming out in the US now.

These three colors may look like Chanel, but they are really pretty in their own right. And WAY less expensive!
