Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow Quad - Addictive review, photos, swatches

If there's one thing I love, it's a good neutral eye and no matter how many crazy coloured eyeshadows I collect, I always fall back to the good old reliable neutral eye.  Especially when running out the door to work first thing in the morning.  Girlfriend ain't got time to be too precise or think about things too much.

Revlon's ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow Quad in Addictive arrived at my house last week along with lots of other quads I'll be reviewing shortly.  This one spoke to me.  This one said "Hey lady, c'mere, I'm going to make it really easy for you to do a neutral eye and I'm not mad shimmery either which is nice".

Revlon did some research into how the different shades in palettes are used and created these ColorStay palettes with four differently sized pans, proportionate to how they're used.  The formula is new and each of the shades have such a silky smooth texture.  The largest pan is the pale cream that I use as a wash of colour all over the lid.  The light taupe on the top right along with the mushroom colour on the bottom left usually go all over my eyelid and under my lower lashes.  I tend to use darkest shade on the bottom right along the lash line, at the outer corner and if I'm feeling wild, in the crease.  Swatches?

I'm in agreement with what the palette said earlier in that it's a nice change to have a palette that has no shimmery, glittery shades.  Just velvet satin shadows that blend like buttah, without all the fall out.  I haven't tested the 16 hour claim yet but I can tell you that the shadows last from 7am until 5pm without creasing and that's with me using a primer like I always have to.

I love basic palettes like this one and it has become a fast favourite for me.  I can do a quick neutral eye like this in about two minutes, with minimal blending and not much fuss.

You have to check this out the next time you're in your local pharmacy.  There are eight palettes altogether and retail at €11.25.  Stay tuned for more reviews!
