Packaged in individual black compacts, these shadows come with a sponge-tipped applicator and are available in five stunning, glitter-tastic colors.

Plum Galaxy is a plum with silver and purple glitter.
Starry Pink is a icy pink with silver and pink glitter.
Celestial Silver is a white gold with silver and green glitter.
Neptune Star is a dark teal with holographic glitter.
Night Sky is a charcoal with holographic glitter.

Compared to your regular powder eyeshadows, the Diamond Lust Eyeshadows feel slightly drier, just like the myface.cosmetics Blingtone Single Eyeshadows I have.

When worn alone, they only give a wash of color with tons of glitter. But if you use a primer like my favorite NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base or a cream shadow underneath, you will get intense color with an uber glittery effect that is beautiful and perfect for going out.

As with most glitter eyeshadows, I do get a bit of fall out during application. Yet the glitter comes off easily with a brush and some loose powder and no tape is needed. I am also very impressed with how well the glitter and color stayed on without moving around or fading through out the day.

The only thing that needs improvement is the consistency in texture. While most of the shadows applied smoothly, the lighter colors (Celestial Silver and Starry Pink) seemed grittier and slightly harder to work with.

Nonetheless, I LOVE the Revlon Gucci Westman Luxurious Color Diamond Lust Eyeshadows and really hope to see more colors in the future.

    • Hi Gillian,

      I *think* these specific colors are limited edition but the new Diamond Lust formula is new and will become permanent.

  1. I love the look of this product and even bookmarked this page so I could remember and buy it… but I can’t find it anywhere. None of my local stores carry it, none of the major online stores, I even tried revlon.com and added it to my cart but when I went to check out it took me to drugstore.com who didn’t have it. I know this is a recent review, so where is it? Where did you get it? :(

    • Awww I’m sorry you’re having trouble finding this. The collection came out a while ago (2-3 months back) and I have seen it in both Walgreens and CVS.

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