This Revlon Luxe Creme Eyeshadow is a limited edition Fall 2014 cream eyeshadow that launched with the Revlon Boho Chic Collection. It’s an intriguing shadow to include in the collection as one wonders if at some point Revlon will release a full line of Luxe Cream Eyeshadows say for Spring 2015!? It could happen right?
I paid $11.99 for my Revlon Luxe Creme Eyeshadow at Walgreens and after I headed to my therapist to have my head examined. Who in their right mind, after all, pays $12 for drugstore eyeshadow? Oh I know…I DO!
The shade is a blackened emerald green with a good deal of glitter. This isn’t a shadow you can apply easily with a brush so you do need to use fingers for the best application and even with fingers things can get very messy. This applies as a semi-matte darkened black green which isn’t terribly flattering on my finely lined, drier eyes. Even if the color applied well, which it doesn’t, I think the shade is a little bit of a pain to get looking right. Personally I applied it and instantly it goes on patchy, uneven, and has major fall out issues. The texture is very thin with a silky creamy consistency but it still manages to not adhere well to eyes and ends up having a good deal of glittery fall out on cheeks and eyes. I find the color sheers out quickly as I apply and ends up looking crazy patchy and uneven in finish. Funny as it looks like I applied my eye makeup with the lights off, it’s that much of a hot mess!

It does in fact crease fairly quickly with or without primer (as you likely guessed already)….! I was thinking MAYBE if the shade was a little lighter I wouldn’t have had such issues with the formula…honestly, if Revlon does a permanent range of these for Spring 2015 I’d be curious to try another shade and see what happens!
But this one?
It’s a mess.
Revlon Luxe Creme Eyeshadow is available now, for a limited time, in the Boho Chic Collection for Fall 2014 at drugstores.
