Revlon Metallic Chic CustomEyes Shadow & Liner Duo

Revlon Metallic Chic CustomEyes Shadow & Liner Duo

Revlon Rich Temptations (030) Custom Eyes Shadow & Liner Duo ($8.99 for 0.20 oz.) contains four eyeshadows and a liner shade (though they’re all powder, so you could easily use the liner shade as an eyeshadow and vice versa).

The first shade is a pale, gray-blue with a satin sheen, which suffers from sheerer color and a slightly drier texture. Inglot #324 is similar but has a matte finish and comes off bluer.

Next, there is a blackened green base with green and gold shimmer, which ends up looking less blackened when applied. Like the first shade, the texture was a bit dry and stiff. The green shade is similar to MAC Humid.

In the middle, we have a soft, paled orange with yellow gold shimmer and sheen, and it was the sheerest shade of the bunch with a powdery texture. It was difficult to apply it evenly. MAC Goldmine is very similar but higher quality (better payoff, texture, etc.). Make Up For Ever #10 is yellower.

The fourth shade is a coppery brown with a champagne sheen. It was powdery, but not too sheer. It is more muted than MAC Antiqued and MAC Faux Gold. Milani Fusion Gold is also similar.

The final shade in this palette is a soft, gray-black that is a bit chalky, slightly sheer, and stiff to work with. It compares well with MAC Double Feature #7, which isn’t a compliment, given that had similar issues!

Overall, this palette was disappointing–I had much better luck with Rich Temptations. It’s amazing how drastically different the textures are between these two palettes! I was impressed by Rich Temptations, but this one was a miss based on my experience working with it.

C-
The best shades in this palette are the green and copper, but the palette--overall--has issues with color payoff, evenness, and texture. They're a bit stiff and difficult to work with, and a few shades require quite a bit of product to get an even layer.

    I have 020 naturally glamourous and I agree with your final thoughts. A shade or two are great but overall hard to work with and bad payoff. I had to be ‘rough’ with my brush to get a lot on it, with other shadows I just normally have to touch it or sweep it.

    I would have passed on this palette anyway because in the pan the colors don’t appear to compliment each other. However, on your arm swatches they look quite complementary (like Autumn leaves). I’d be picking this up based on your swatches, but I’ll certainly pass based on your review of their workability! Thanks, Christine!

  3. That green is absolutely gorgeous, but the rest aren’t doing it for me. I feel like the colors don’t complement each other that well, and part of the appeal of palettes for me is getting to be lazy and thrown on whatever they tell me works! Oh well, I guess based on the quality of these shadows, I’m not missing much by passing on these!

  4. I have this too… I don’t like this either

  5. Violet

    Pretty sure I’d be bored with this pallette regardless of quality.
