Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadows

Product Info

Brand

Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadows comes in a 12 palettes, of which I only have one so far – “720 Moonlit Jewels 06”. Each palette comes with 4 crème shadows. The colours ranges from neutrals, pinks, purples, bronze and recently I’ve seen some new palettes released in some bright, colourful shades. The ones I have are shimmery, but the new ones that have just been released look matte (I haven’t swatched it though so I can’t be 100% sure).

Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadows (Not Just Nudes)

Their ‘Not Just Nudes’ palette is a nice set of neutrals, consisting of a matte cream shade, a shimmery light brown/champagne, a matte medium tan/brown and a shimmery burgundy-tint dark brown.

The product itself is very smooth and creamy, which makes for easy application with your fingertips and I normally use a blend of all 4 colours.

I did not experience any problems with creasing - without using a primer. I do however normally use it as a base for powder eye shadow which could make the difference. Alone it does not last very long, but it's nice if you are looking for a quick and natural look. I nice makeup staple to have and which I will continue to have around.

Revlon Cream Shadows in Wild Orchids

Wild Orchids is the palette in the photo above. The colours are gorgeous in this set. There is one pink, two lavender and one burgundy brown shade. The all have different textures but all are very shimmery while some are more so than others. The all work really well together. This week I have been wearing the second lavender shade on the lid with the pink on the brow bone. It is a very springy fresh look. I used them on top of my MAC paint which is a super durable primer and just applied it with my figer. The color is a lot more intense that way. Unfortunately just a few hours later it started sliding all over and setting in the crease and frankly looked horrible. I had to wipe it off at work. The second time around I used a concealer brush to apply and it was a much thinner coat. Because the layer wasn't as thick it didn't crease as badly but it was still obvious. I personally don't mind having bought these but if I paid the full price for it, I think I would have been pretty upset. Because of the creasing issue this quad doesn't get much use.

Personally I wouldn't recommend this unless you have very dry lids that don't really get oily.

The precious metals creme shadows worked really well and looked natural, especially the green blended with the beige and brown with beige- it had a better effect when used sparingly! I was not impressed with pinks , was average . Will definately buy this again!MWA

Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadows

I purchased two palettes ("Precious Metals" and "Not Just Nudes"), and i'm not very impressed with the overall result of these creme shadows. Relvon have amazing colour palettes that produce endless posibilities! The four shades in each palette are complimentary to each other, which makes mixing and matching super easy! I find the creme shadows really easy to apply, although they definately crease after a while. Great for smudging and blending, they're widely available and affordable!

Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadows

These crème shadows blend very easily and you can mix and match colours to create your own, but I do not recommend them to be used by themselves. It may cause your lids to appear greasy and the crème shadow will definitely crease within a few hours of wear.

Now you may have noticed by now, that I am very into using products or techniques that help prolong my makeup all day, because I’m not very good at retouching my makeup throughout the day. This crème eyeshadow is perfect if you want to intensify the pigment of your existing eyeshadows, and the bonus is that it creates the perfect creamy base to help your eyeshadow adhere to your eyelids ALL DAY! I would still suggest using a eye primer before applying the crème shadow – I use MAC Prep and Prime in Light. Apply the crème shadow, then apply your powder/mineralise eyeshadow on top of that. You can even create iridescent shades by using a crème shadow colour that is different, but complimentary to your eyeshadow colour. My favourite is to use the blue crème shadow, and purple eyeshadow over it. It gives the purple a blue iridescent effect, which is very pretty and especially flattering on ladies with brown eyes.
