Revlon Colorstay Shadow Links Eyeshadow for Winter 2013

Revlon Colorstay Shadow Links Eyeshadow

Get ready for eighteen shades of the new Revlon Colorstay Shadow Links Eyeshadow launching at drugstores now for the Fall/Winter 2013 season. These cute little clickable shadows stack side by side to create your own custom eyeshadow palette.

Each shadow is $2.49 (at Harmons drugstore) and they come in a range of eighteen colors!

I’ll be reviewing them shortly but thought I’d share the display I located at Harmons recently.

I was thinking how inexpensive and budget friendly they are but realized creating your perfect palette could get pricey quite as I clicked four shades together thus my “palette” cost me $10 bucks and tax! But hey, they are full size shades so that counts for something.


Do share!

Busy testing these now so expect swatches and a review shortly.


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I can’t wait for your swatches! Cool concept and love the price! I just hope they are worth it?!

    Hey there my Sista! I did indeed see these last week at Harmon’s but I am glad to say I passed on these. I am so tired of Revlon’s eye products — especially their shadows — being a huge disappointment. I still love their lip products but I’ve been burned way too many times to count when buying their eyeshadows.

    Now if you should find that these turn out to be awesome, I will have to give ’em a chance.

      christina, I wasn’t sure myself as I don’t agree with Revlon shadow’s formula myself…but these looked quite nice..not sure on the price point though as I purchased four of them and that came to around 11 dollars…I could prob just get a revlon quad for $5-$6 bucks….!

  • Krista

    They look really pretty! They definitely could be budget friendly if you don’t plan on buying too many shadows.

  • Jenna

    Really love the idea of creating your own palette without having to buy a clunky case (ahem Urban Decay).
    Hoping the shadows perform well. I can totally see myself buying some of these if they’re worth it.

  • Christina

    But that’s just it, Muse, you can get a Revlon quad for $5-$6 but it’s been my experience thats $5-$6 in the garbage. I don’t mind a palette that I create for $11 if the quality is there — and that’s not been my experience with Revlon’s eye products.

      mmm agreed hopefully these singles are decent although I will say they look chalky on Emma’s eye in the promo images…eep scared!

  • Mindy

    Cute! I think Sally Beauty Supply does a similar concept (individually sold shadows that join together to create a custom palette) with their 99 cent Sally Girl shadows.

  • Caroline

    Hmm, interesting. I’ll be interested to see your review on these. I only have one of the ColorStay shadow quads, but I’ve been less than thrilled with it as the shadows tend to crease even when worn w/ a primer. Let us know what you think of these! 🙂

    I bought two (Oyster and a Taupe) and am really liking how they work. Oyster is as close as I need it for UD’s Verve (I think), and I love the color the Taupe is on my skin. The folks who love insane pigment probably won’t enjoy these (it’s there, it’s just not intense), and the texture is a bit rough such that I prefer to pat it on, but I really like them.

  • Jane

    I’m pretty excited, I’ve had some really bad eyeshadows from revlon but at the same time my favorite-go-to ones are Revlon as well. Hoping they have some shadows similar to their satin line!

  • dia

    I love this concept! I have one of their quads and I’m pretty satisfied with it, but two of the colors show up nearly identical on me. So a drugstore build-your-own palette is perfect.

    i bought a handful of these at my Bed Bath and Beyond recently. sad to say they’re going back. pigmentation was really poor and some of them didnt link very well. they looked really cute but id rather use my wet n wild trios as they are the same price and have awesome pigmentation.

  • lola

    harmon has a $ 1 off coupon in this month’s circular for eye shadow, but most colors are gone, sigh! i got three…

    these things often do disappoint though

    Just stumbled across this page. And I wanted to tell you that this week 11/17-11/23 they are having a special on these at Walgreens. They are normally $2.99 but are currently 40% off. Making them $1.79. Then in the November sales booklet they have $1 off Revlon shadows. That makes them $.79 each. There’s also a $1 off coupon that can be used with that supposed to be in most Sunday papers. Making them free or possibly a money maker. I bought 6 to try. 😀

    I bought one, Taupe, and it is a fail for me. The idea was neat (kind of like Jouer’s link together packaging but cheaper) but the pigmentation was a total bummer. 🙁
