Thumbs-Down: Revlon Luxurious/Perle Eye Shadow

I got this eyeshadow for free when I bought a Revlon mascara, so maybe I shouldn’t be complaining about it – BUT it really kinda sucks…

Pros:  Paraben-free.  Inexpensive.  Comes in pretty colors.

Cons:  Cheaply made.  Not smooth. (neither “satin”, nor “perle”) .  Sheds glittery stuff all over. Doesn’t go on as evenly as most of Revlon’s eye shadows.

In Summary:  When I see the world “perle” (even if it’s not spelled P-E-A-R-L), I expect some sort of shiny – maybe even shimmery – finish.  (Still not sure how “perle” and “satin” are in the same product name…) The color was called “Lilac Shimmer”.  It should have been called “Lilac Strip Club”, because if you put on even the least bit of it, you end up with sparkly body-glitter-esque stuff all over your face. (Now that I look more closely, I can see the glitter in the eyeshadow, but it was hard to see in a florescent-lit store, and it was inside extra packaging, making it even harder to see.)  It’s possible that just this color is problematic and others are fine.  I’m just really glad it was free.

Note:  Revlon makes some really good eye shadows (including some of my favorites).  This just isn’t one of them.
