    • It’s not TOO bad imo. I used NARS Pro Prime Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base underneath and patted the shadows on with my finger. While I did get a bit of fall out during application, the glitter stayed on very well and did not migrate at all during the day. I will post a more detailed review and swatches tomorrow.

  1. Facets of Fuschia looks like Bad Romance from Deborah Lippmann. I like how Starry Pink looks so I might pick that up. Waiting for your eyeshadow swatches!

  2. Lovely! I may just stop by the drug store today & pick up some of these today :) I agree with Karen, Facets of Fuschia does look quite a bit like Bad Romance.

  3. I have heard that the liquid lip colors are extremely drying and the eyeshadow are more sparkle than colors. But I guess with your mad skill, you can make them work…

    Those nail polishes are the bombs though.

    • The ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipsticks do dry down to this matte finish that resembles a lipstick which I thought was interesting… but yes it is on the drier side.

      I wore Celestial Silver with a primer underneath today and the color showed up very nicely on me with lots of sparkles. Will test everything else out tomorrow.

  4. Oh my god, i am in love with these Revlon’s when i saw them online. I was wondering where can you buy it in stores? I really want to get them :D. Did you like all the products???

  5. Hello! Where did you get this collection? I have been checking walgreens/cvs online and dont see them..any suggestions where I could check? Thanks

  6. Just an update for those who are still looking for this, the collection is now available for sale at revlon.com.
