There are so many drugstore gems and awesome make-up sales at the moment that I feel it is my duty, as a friendly beauty blogger, to tempt you all to buy more make-up to fill up your stash! With all Revlon products slashed to 50% off at Chemist Warehouse – GET IN QUICK! – keep an eye out (har-de-har!) for their new eyeshadow offerings - Revlon Photoready Primer + Shadow + Sparkle.
Allow me to give you a quick lowdown on Revlon Photoready Primer + Shadow + Sparkle before you race out to shop…
It comes in a sturdy-ish travel-friendly case with 2 dual-ended eyeshadow applicator spoolies (that you probably won’t use unless you have been a lazy gal and all your eyeshadow brushes are dirty) with no mirror on the inner lid.
For eyeshadow noobs, don’t panic because Revlon have kindly provided instructions on the back of the case.
As an oily-lidded girl, I am extremely happy to find eyeshadow primer in the palette!! And I like all things sparkly, so it’s delightful to have an option to apply a sparkle top coat.
As you can see, there is a wide assortment of eyeshadow colours to choose from – neutral nudey tones to colourful brights. If however, you are a dedicated matte eyeshadow lover forever, you may want to pass on Revlon Photoready Primer + Shadow + Sparkle.
Some eyeshadows were harder to work with than others, some had fall-out, some sparkle felt a bit gritty, some didn’t suit my Asian eyelids and some were smooth as a baby’s bottom – but it’s difficult for me to give you a detailed review on all the individual palettes. My advice – head to your local Revlon counter and swatch away till you find a favourite or two, and proceed to checkout
