Revlon Colorstay 12 Hour Eyeshadow Quad: Blushed Wines
Can someone please tell me how to stop my eyes from looking so bloodshot all the time? I never get enough sleep (get up at 5:30, can't get to sleep early enough at night), so I am always looking really bleary of late.
Anyway, these palettes are priced at a RIDICULOUS $25ish here in Australia. I bought mine from the US in my Drugstore haul for about $6US... and that's pretty much all it's worth.
The pigmentation is not terrible, but it's nothing fantastic either. It's about what I would expect from a $6 palette. Certainly not what I would expect from a $25 palette. They are fairly smooth, but quite dry and a bit powdery.
(I smudged a bit of NYX Jumbo Pencil in Slate along the lashline just to define it a bit). The lighter colours are a bit too shiny for my taste.
Lasting power - eh. Not too much creasing but quite a bit of fading. Nothing terrible, but nothing impressive either.
I have three of these quads (the other two are Neutral Khaki and Coffee Bean), and they're all pretty much the same. They're okay, nothing great, stupidly overpriced here. That's really all I can say about them.
