4 stars out of 5

Revlon WW84 Colorstay Cream Eyeshadow ($8.49) in Chocolate is from the limited edition Revlon x WW84 or Revlon Wonder Woman 1984 Makeup Collection. The Revlon Wonder Woman Collection is finally starting to trickle into stores as the film was supposed to be released already this past Summer but was held up due to the pandemic and will instead have a theatrical release in October. The collection is broken into two parts with shades inspired by Diana aka Wonder Woman and the other half is inspired by Barbara Ann Minerva aka Cheetah.

Revlon WW84 isn’t the first time the brand has ventured into comics! In 2014, there was a Revlon Electric Chrome Spider-Man Collection that was available which included nail polishes and glosses. I’d take the Spider-Man Collection over this Wonder Woman one to be honest. The WW84 Collection is really, really phoned in. The only unique part of the collection might be the Revlon X WW84 The Wonder Woman Face and Eye Palette aside from many of the other pieces are re-promoted shades and products.

Of course, the one thing I like from this collection, the Revlon WW84 Colorstay Cream Eyeshadow Review in Chocolate, is not only a re-promoted shade but also, has the most minimal packaging details as most of the WW84 details are on the outer packaging that end up in the trash as the actual cream eyeshadow pot is just the regular packaging. The packaging nod to Wonder Woman is just some simple red and gold with WW84 splashed across it so yeah, this is pretty phoned in.

The MAC Wonder Woman Collection really nailed it but sadly, Revlon x WW84 is a bust.

Revlon WW84 Colorstay Cream Eyeshadow in Chocolate is not a shade I own which is why I purchased it. I can honestly say it wasn’t the Wonder Woman theme at all that encouraged this purchase. I know crazy right? As a geek, I love Wonder Woman as much as the next person but this purchased wasn’t because of a fandom. Hell, I left the entire collection on the display and walked away with this single eyeshadow because 1. I thought the pieces were too expensive and 2. I was unimpressed with the packaging!

Why did I purchase it? Because I actually like the gorgeous chocolate-y shade which ironically isn’t even chocolate at all! In the pot, this is a matte bark or chocolate brown but on my eyes it almost looks gray or a dark mauve-y grayish purple. It was unexpected to say the least. Oddly I liked it though! It’s a nice all over color wash for when you want to accent your eyes but not put in a lot of work or it’ll work great as a base eyeshadow for a deeper powder eyeshadow or it’ll look great with a little smudged up eyeliner on the lash line! You can definitely get a good deal of looks out of this single uneventful shade without a lot of effort.

The formula is thin, not too creamy, and blends very easily and smoothly but you do have to act quickly as it sets fairly fast and doesn’t budge or move at all once in place and doesn’t show signs of wear, creasing, or fading the entire time it is on my eyelids even on a hot, humid day! I was pretty impressed with the formula and it made me want to try some of the shades I already own which, if you can believe it, I never cracked open yet!

This comes in a glass jar with a lid that has a small slip out brush that’s hidden in the lid. The brush is pretty handy to apply the shade but I did blend out better with my fingers versus using the brush. But props for including that little brush and making it easy to slip it right back into the lid!

The size of 0.16 oz and the price of $8.49 remains the same across the board even with the “limited edition” packaging. I got mine at Walmart and it set me back $5.94. I saw the entire collection at CVS but this shade was not included in the display so this might be something exclusive to Walmart but again, that doesn’t really matter as this shade is available in the permanent range anyway and you can snag it there without all the excess outer packaging that you’ll toss out anyway! Also, you can snag shades on BOGO today at Ulta should you want this!

All in all, Revlon WW84 Colorstay Cream Eyeshadow is disappointing if your part of the Wonder Woman fandom but quite nice if you like cream eyeshadows. The formula was fairly nice even if the color was a little off!

Anyone own this?

Do share your thoughts!

Revlon WW84 Colorstay Cream Eyeshadow in Chocolate is a “limited edition” but permanent shade that has new outer packaging that was released with the Revlon X WW84 Makeup Collection to celebrate the release of the Wonder Woman 1984 Movie coming to theaters in October. This is t permanent shade that Revlon has already made but is re-promoting with this collection. In the pot it’s a very deep, dark chocolate but applies like a smokier gray or a mauve-y gray shade. The formula is a thin cream that applies and blends easily but does set fairly fast so you do have to work fast before it sets. The color seals on beautifully and doesn’t fade nor crease even in the heat. It’s 0.16 oz and the typical price range is $6-$9.

Pros

  • Solid cream eyeshadow formula that didn’t fade nor crease.
  • Good pigment.
  • Fairly affordable.
  • Convenient packaging with a brush.

Cons

  • Color isn’t true to pot (looks like a gorgeous chocolate brown applies grayish or grayish mauve).
  • Dries down quickly so not a lot of time to blend.
  • Disappointing packaging that doesn’t really represent Wonder Woman.

Who

If you like easy to apply cream eyeshadows that accent eyes you should get on well with the Revlon WW84 Colorstay Cream Eyeshadow.

    I can’t believe there is no WW details on the actual product. What a crock! Lol. I already have this shade and don’t use it that much honestly, love the formula though.

    Ps. I got the $20 Charlotte Tilbury mystery product and I highly recommend! I know some people like surprises, so idk if I should say what it is in case people don’t want to know until they get it? I personally like knowing what I’m buying so I snuck a peak at the reviews on her site where people said what it is. Totally up your alley Muse if you don’t already have it!

    • Isabella Muse

      HAHAHA I’m going to look now! ;-D I was damn curious what it was!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know right? The rest of the collection does have some reference to WW84 plus red packaging but this there was nothing!? dumb!

      • Hannah Mary

        I just went to look at the reviews again and I think they deleted the ones that said what it is! Sneaky. It’s the Pillow Talk Superstar Lips (the new glossy lipstick in the thinner tube to jog your memory).

        • Isabella Muse

          Oh my god that’s a good one!!!!!!!!! thanks for the heads up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Deb

    This is a trip, Muse. The difference between the arm swatch and how it looks on your lids is kinda freaky to me! What’s really weird is I have this shade and on me it’s brown. A cool brown, but no mauve-ish tint at all. I have very different coloring than you, and blue eyes, so maybe that’s it? Don’t think I’ve ever noticed a Revlon cream eyeshadow do this before.

    • Isabella Muse

      weird right? The color completely morphs on my lids! It’s not a bad thing as it looks nice but dunno why it looks like this lol!

    • kjh

      Yes, this whole brown/gray/purple thing is a mystery. Is it one’s undertones? Basic coloration? Skin or lip chemistry? Whaaaat? My coloring is grossly NW15 with red u/ts. Most brown e/s looks muddy or gross, even when blended ‘skillfully’. If a brown l/s has any purple/puce in it, it reads purple on me. Mac deeply rooted? Brown on most and flat out purple on me. WTF? First world problems.

  • angela

    Weird with the color changing thing LOL! Do they have a color similar to MAC’s painterly paint pot? Could there be a cheaper dupe in the drugstore!??

  • makeupismyjam

    Perhaps throw some red on the jar lid at least lol?? I do love the Revlon Colorstay Creme eyeshadows in general (I have Praline, Caramel, and 2 other darker shades I cannot recall) that last all day with no primer in the hot Florida weather and look great for more conservative daytime looks or as a nice shimmery base for eyeshadow (lighter shades). Chocolate is a neutral shade (I had this a long time ago) to layer with lighter shadows and I think it looks nice on you!

    • Isabella Muse

      right? haha! thanks! I like it. I have a few other shades but they have been in my “to review” pile for a while! I gotta get them out and start wearing ’em 😀

  • Kish

    Oh wow, I like the purple tone to this, I may buy it now lol. I didn’t think I needed another brown. Also, I’m almost out of my last LE Maybelline Color Tattoo cream shadow in Black Orchid and I’m desperate for a dupe. This may work if I use a shimmery top coat. Thanks!

  • Claudia

    Girl I was so excited when I saw this 2 months ago because I thought there would be new nail shades, uh no! Repromotes but with the gold double W emblem. I got the blue one anyway, it looked too pretty not to. ‍♀️

  • Miska

    Isabella, it’s crazy how much the color changes on your eyelids versus on your hand. I really dig it on your eye lids, thanks for the swatches. We have very similar hair, eye and skin coloring and now I want this. In fact, I’ve bought a lot of my makeup going off of your swatches!!! Really appreciate it right now too. I wonder if we’ll ever go back to being able to swatch things in store? That’s something that I feel is crucial to my purchases, especially with trying to match a foundation or powder. I noticed the Revlon WW collection in CVS when I fell off the no buy wagon to snatch up some Maybelline Lifter Glosses ( in my defense, I had a coupon and couldn’t let it go to waste) and I thought it was on the expensive side as well.

    • Isabella Muse

      My pleasure! I know it’s weird right?! I love that! I hope it helped!? 🙂 I know….! I hope our world starts healing so we can go to a fav makeup stores without being terrified 🙁 Haha even without a coupon those glosses are good right? The collection was very, very overpriced at CVS! Walmart prices are a bit better but damn CVS really jacks it up!
