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

A couple of weeks ago I showed you the gorgeous neutral palette, Addictive, from the Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow Quad range and today I've another gorgeous one to show you, Adventurous.  So if you feel like you've mastered the neutral eye and want to try something a bit more adventurous *ahem*, then give this palette a go.

The pigmentation is great on this one and as you can see, the four shades range from a light gold tinged cream, to an olive green, a warm coppery brown and a chocolate brown.  They're super soft and you'll find only a small amount of fall out with them.

I decided to play with them and follow the little picture on the back of the palette for the craic.  I'm wild, I know.  Usually I think I know it all and do what I usually do, but I was intrigued about putting the copper shade on the outer corner!

So the green went all over the lid and the dark brown went in the crease, making sure not to take it too far along the outside corner.  I patted the copper colour at the outer V and took it under my lower lashes.  A quick wash of the lightest shade along my brow bone was enough to add light and blend the harsh edges.

I love that you can get a couple of looks out of this one palette and it's one that you can keep at your desk for unexpected nights out after work.  These palettes will set you back €11.25, so it's not going to break the bank.

I've lots more of these to show you and I think I might use the most colourful one next!
