Revlon 16 Hour Eyeshadow Quad in Decadent ($7.29) is an interesting combination of colors. It contains 2 pinks, one gold, and one brown shade. The colors looked promising in the package but I was quickly disappointed.
The texture and consistency of these eyeshadows is not the problem. They are smooth and silky and apply nicely. But the colors are barely pigmented at all. Even the brown shade is barely visible unless you use a really heavy hand and build it with several applications. And it still is very light brown. The other 3 shades barely showed up on my eyelids even after several swipes of each color. So disappointing.
As for the wear, 16 hours is a bit of a stretch. The claim is that they are crease, fade and smudge resistant. I tested mine without eye primer to get a true sense of wear on my oily eyelids. Not great. They lasted about 4 hours before starting to crease. By 8 hours, the eyeshadow was completely gone.
I’m bummed out by these Revlon ColorStay 16 hour eyeshadows. I really liked the color combo in Decadent and was excited to have it. But after one use of this, I know it’s going back to the drugstore and I won’t be picking up anymore of these.
Have you tried out any of these Revlon ColorStay 16 hour eyeshadow quads? If you have, what has your experience been like?
