Hello again! I'm here with a quickie quick review of two more Shadow Links from Revlon. This time in Purple (yes, thats the name) and Java. I originally wrote a review of Taupe (you can see it here).
These have finally appeared on the Revlon website. They say: "Individual, interchangeable eye shadows click together to create your own customized palette of possibilities. In 4 fabulous finishes and 30 covetable, collectible shades". (source)
The Good: I like the way the eyeshadows can link together and that you can create a custom palette.
The Bad: Pretty much everything I said from my first review. Java and Purple look nice when swatched above (with a sponge eyeshadow applicator), however when applied to the lid I find they're lacking in pigmentation. Java has lots of chunky glitter in it that makes for some great fallout. I wanted to love the purple matte, but its just so sheer. Both shadows are powdery and a bit chalky. I'm not a fan. When I used Java over a cream shadow as primer, and packed it on, it actually looked nice. But sadly, thats a bit too much work for me.
Overall: I'm not a fan. There has to be some gems in this line somewhere, but I'm not willing to test 27 more shades to find out. I say, try it and if you dont like it, return it. I will. Couldn't hurt for 3 bucks right?
