Revlon Desert Dazzle PhotoReady Eye Art Lid+Line+Lash Duo Review+Swatches

 Revlon says "dazzle with the latest in makeup artistry. Coordinating shadows duos with satin and sparkle finishes create unique, customized eye looks." The new PhotoReady Eye Are Lid+Line+Lash duos are available in ten shades, my review features Desert Dazzle. Each of these cream shadow duos contain a total of 6ml (.2 fl oz) and sell for about $10 at drugstores and major retailers. Revlon is not cruelty free. This product was made in the USA.

 Packaging for Revlon's PhotoReady Eye Art Lid+Line+Lash duos are pretty much identical to their nail art duos - its convenient, but a little confusing in a retail situation. Each product has a different applicator - the cream shadow has a flat, elongated doefoot application; the glitter liner has a pointed, plastic brush. The product name, shade name, and a full ingredient list are printed on the center of the packaging. All packaging is recyclable.
 Alright, lets start with the cream eyeshadow, which is actually closer to being a liquid eyeshadow, really. This thin cream shadow has a very wet consistency that makes it quite pliable on the eyelid - I recommend using a flat synthetic brush to pat the shadow on, this method will provide the most even distribution. Fingers of a brush, the Desert Dazzle cream eyeshadow will never be completely even - liquid shadows like these are just prone to patchiness. While wear time for this shadow isn't great, it is better than I expected - this sort of product usually creases on me right away, but when worn over a primer, the Desert Dazzle cream shadow lasts about five hours. Desert Dazzle is a sheer, shimmering olive green with flecks of golden sparkle dispersed throughout.
 Now on to the glitter liner, which, to be frank, is awful. Revlon's gold glitter eyeliner/top coat has a thin, clear base that's impossible to apply in an even layer. The applicator just kinda pushes the product around if you try to go back in and even things out. The Desert Dazzle glitter liner takes it's sweet time to dry - over a minute, probably closer to two. This is one of those glitter liners that peels. After two or three hours, the corners of this gilded glitter liner have come up and soon it starts to crumble, causing very unattractive fallout.
 I knew Revlon's PhotoReady Eye Are Lid+Line+Lash duos were going to be bad. The olive green liquid/cream shadow is thin, sheer, and creases easily. The gold glitter eyeliner is difficult to apply and has a tendency to peel straight off. Honestly, I don't have anything good to say about this product, please don't waste ten bucks on it.

    1. Liquid eyeshadows and glitter liners are almost always bad. This product screamed failure from the moment I got it out of the package. Glad I can save you some money tho, these are expensive for what they are! Like dang, Revlon!
