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.

Revlon Metallic Chic CustomEyes Shadow & Liner Duo Review, Photos, Swatches

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.
