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.
These shadow in the Inspired quad aren’t quite as soft as I would have hoped. They do feel a little harder and slightly gritty to the touch. But you do get really great payoff over a primer and they blend pretty nicely
The first color is a champagne/white shimmery shade, great for using as a highlight color.
The second shade is a light sky blue with silver micro-glitter.
The third shade is a deep navy blue with slight sheen.
The fourth is a pale lime green with micro-glitter.
I felt the same slight grittiness with the Adventurous palette as with Inspired, but the colors were even more pigmented.
The first shade is a yellow/white shade, almost with a duochrome feel to it.
The second is a deep saturated olive green with gold micro-shimmer.
The third is a deep chocolate brown matte.
The fourth is a medium muted copper/brown.
I really like these and was impressed especially with Adventurous! The colors are nice, work well together, and even with the slight hard texture you get great color payoff.
Pricing: $6-7 depending, and 0.16 oz.
Have you tried any of these yet? Do they look like something you would try out for the price?
