Revlon came out with a cream eyeshadow formula recently, and since I use these as a primer and base layer I thought it was worth testing out. I purchased one shade, Black Currant (#740). This is a taupe/purple color with shimmer.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION (From Ulta)
Revlon ColorStay Crème Eyeshadow is a luxurious, longwear crème eyeshadow with a pro-inspired built-in-brush designed for easy, mess free application. Wears up to 24 hours.
The brush is housed in the cap, and it’s actually really useful! It is easy to apply the shadow with this little brush, and easy to give it a quick clean before putting it back (although mine is dirty in the photo above since I used it that day).
Is it long wearing? Yes! I use this as a primer for my shadows without a problem. I love wearing colored primers to give shadow some extra dimension.
Compared to the Maybelline Color Tattoos, I don’t think these are quite as pigmented. They are rather sheer on the first layer but easy to build without feeling thick.
Black Currant is a stunning color; it is truly gorgeous and one of the more unique shades in the lineup. There are plenty of neutrals to try if that’s your thing, but I am definitely more into the colorful shades. I also prefer these to the new Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chromes, even though they are completely different concepts.
I can’t comment on if these will dry out as quickly as the Maybelline Color Tattoos, but time will tell. This is a comparison I’m interested to see, but I guess time will tell! 🙂
Although I personally do not do one shadow looks (nope…I’m just too much for that), I think these would be good for someone who does.
