Revlon ColorStay Looks Book Eyeshadow Palette ($9.99) have launched in five shade selections. Each of these eyeshadow palettes holds eight shades each and come in a range of matte, metallic, and shimmer finishes with a “highly pigmented” formula according to the brand. Each palette offers a way to change your look and mood with different personality inspired shades!

Shades:

  • Original: Be true to you, original. you’re the first of your crew to try something new, the beauty boss with an authentic sense of style.
  • Player: Stardom starts here, player. show off your irresistible charm and powerful presence with supercharged shades.
  • Enigma: Leave them on the edge of their seats, enigma. Your unexpected looks and mysterious moves allure a crowd.
  • Maverick: Stand up and stand out, maverick. You’re a rebel with a cause who shines in one of a kind color.
  • Insider: Set the trend, insider. Show your impeccable taste and undeniable influence with this chic, matte palette.

The promo images hint that maybe these eyeshadows will have a slurry texture which seems the gold standard eyeshadow texture and formula of choice in the drugstore world lately. And I’m quite alright with that as I’m a long time fan of Japanese drugstore brands which tend to embrace the formula as well. The slurry texture refers to the soft, velvety texture that feels like a cream slash powder consistency. Not everyone loves this texture but I’m a rather big fan. We’ve seen it a lot in a variety of different palettes lately from Covergirl, Maybelline, and L’Oreal.

I’m glad Revlon might be moving on to such a texture considering their current eyeshadow palette formula is horrid. The formula in the Not Just Nudes Eyeshadow Palette was incredibly dry and just horrible. I’m hoping I’m right about the Colorstay Looks Book Eyeshadow Palettes as they look lovely!

Revlon ColorStay Looks Book Eyeshadow Palette are available now!

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.

    Saw these in person at Ulta and Walgreens. They remind me of the CoverGirl palettes, that’s why I didn’t buy any…also waiting to see reviews on them. Hopefully they are pigmented though. Another reason I didn’t buy any is because you are right: their track record on eye shadow is bad. But since these do appear to be a slurry formula there is hope…

    I bought one and it sure feels like a slurry to me, but I’m no expert. The bigger problem is that the pans are SO tiny it’s a bit difficult to get a brush (or, being honest, my finger) in there. Really lovely texture and great pigment on Original. I’m very pale so lighter colors are okay by me.

    I’ve tried these, and I really like them. You’re right about the formula: a huge step up for Revlon. They finally got it right.

    I picked up the Player palette about 2 months ago at my local rite aid. Had a $4 coupon and figured why not. I’m a sucker for anything new. I can share swatches if you’d like. These are actually quite nice. I’ve never heard the term slurry for eyeshadow before but these are what you describe. They’re very pigmented and wear time is good even without primer. I swiped on the bright grinch green to be festive for my sons holiday school party and wow! These are worth it for the most part. Great colors and great payoff. Only downside is the pans for each color are very slim so depending on what brush you’re using it can slightly be a pain. Also I think the price point is a bit high for the drugstore pan and amount you get.

      I haven’t seen these in store yet! damn 2 months ago! I’m behind haha! They sound GREAT! Someone mentioned they were small, will a sponge applicator fit?

  • Angie Clementine

    I have seen one positive review on these so far. The only con is that the pans are really narrow and hard to get a brush into. But I’m happy to see that Revlon is finally releasing a quality eyeshadow formula.

    I think I’m one of the weird ones that prefer a lot of drugstore eyeshadows to high end. I have a Covergirl trunaked palette that works so much better at blending than my urban decay naked basics palette. These do look like the Covergirl ones as someone else pointed out, so I’ll probably pick up the Original one to see how it compares.

      at this point Urban Decay eyeshadow is just horrible so, I am sure that some of the DS palettes you have are better! Since Urban Decay was sold it has never been the same 🙁
