The Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash ($8.99) double ended duos include both a cream eyeshadow and a sparkle. There are 10 different duos to choose from in the line. I picked up Topaz Twinkle to test out first.
The packaging is all plastic and both ends untwist. The cream eyeshadow end has a doe foot applicator while the sparkle end has a pointed brush applicator.
Topaz Twinkle is one of the most neutral combos in the collection. Most of the other duos are quite colorful and not really my speed.
The cream eyeshadow end of Topaz Twinkle is a beautiful bronzed, golden champagne color. It is very pigmented and goes on so smoothly with opaque coverage.
This shadow drys down pretty quickly so you don’t have to worry about it being overly messy or transferring before it sets. Once it drys, it’s budge proof on my oily eyelids.
Even on these hot summer days, I’ve had no creasing at all, even without an eyelid primer. That’s pretty much unheard of for me so I’m super impressed with the staying power.
It doesn’t flake off at all either. It stays put all day long and is fuss proof.
I like to apply it to my eyelids with the doe foot applicator and then quickly use a flat shader brush to blend it out evenly. It can be built up, after you let the first coat dry.
The sparkle end is a clear base filled with tiny specks of golden and multi-color glitters. It can be patchy with one application but if you let it dry and go over with a second coat, it gives better, more even coverage.
I enjoy using the sparkle part as an eyeliner. It just gives you a nice subtle shimmer to your eyelids.
It drys pretty fast as well so it’s also very easy to build up layers. Once it sets, it stays put all day. I have zero issues with fallout and it doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes like other glitter eyeliners I’ve tried.
It can be worn all over your eyelids on top of the cream eyeshadow. Just let the cream eyeshadow dry fully first.
This give your eyelids a very similar look to using one of the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Eye Shadows but at less than half of the cost.
Overall I like the Revlon Eye Art concept. The cream shadow alone is worth having and the sparkle portion is a nice added bonus.
