Easy to use, cute brush to apply but doesn't work terribly well. Use a cream brush of your own and it scores 5 stars for me.

    Comments about Revlon ColorStay Crème Eyeshadow:

    So creme shadows are great when they're done right, but when they're done wrong, oh god stay away. I have tried so many- always looking for that light, natural wash of color to quickly throw on the lids in the morning. Something that says, I didn't put a lot of effort into my makeup but I still look chic and put together. Well, the revlon creme shadow in Espresso is exactly what I've been looking for. In comparison to Maybelline's color tattoo in taupe, this color espresso in the revlon shadow is much lighter and warmer. It's less pigmented, however it blends sooo much better than the color tattoo, and it doesn't get all clumpy and patchy. There' a bit of glitter in this one, but I personally like it, because it's subtle and quite nice. This creme shadow can be perfectly blended with your fingers and does not need a brush. It is moisturizing and gives the lids that slightly wet look that is super trendy right now. I am so pleased with this shadow. I really can't believe that revlon pulled this off. I wear the Smashbox eye primer underneath this and it lasts all day. I haven't used it without a primer underneath yet. If you're trying to decide between this and maybellines color tattoo, I'd say go with this one. The colors may not be the same in both lines, but in my opinion, the revlon creme shadow is superior in blendability and ease of application.

        Comments about Revlon ColorStay Crème Eyeshadow:

        I purchased Vanilla to use on the upper lid/brow bone area and apply the Maybelline eyeshadow crayons on my lower lids, and love the end result(s). Vanilla is the perfect color to brighten your eyes and make them sparkle and pop!!! What I also love is that you can control the amount of color payoff with the creme formula and do a sheer application or build up a more intense one. I use the Revlon eye primer and my creme and crayon eyeshadows last all day with little/no creasing!!!! And if you have sensitive eyes like I do, both the creme and crayon eyeshadows don't irritate your eyes at all, unlike the powder eyeshadows!!! Use good, firm eyeshadow brushes to apply the creme eyeshadow effectively. Goes on quickly and lasts all day!!! Great product at an affordable price!!!! Thanks, Revlon!!!

            I absolutely love this product!! I use it as a base for my powder eye shadows or just use it alone when I'm in a hurry in the morning. The neutral colors look very natural and brighten my eyes. I use my finger to blend it, not the brush. It lasts like 16 hours!! And it doesn't crease or slide around like most of them do. Very good quality for the value!

              Comments about Revlon ColorStay Crème Eyeshadow:

              I have this in black currant creme brulee chocolate and the bronze color. I like the creme brulee and bronze color the best. Applies easily with fingers. Are great as just a lid shade alone. The chocolate is matte and looks a little dark at first but blends well. The black currant is more sheet and has noticeable glitter...my least favorite.

              Would be better in a different color

              I purchased this eye shadow in pistachio. I was looking for a greenish color. I did not care for it on my skin tone but I liked the actual eye shadow and would have kept it if it were in a color that better flattered my skin. Also neat that it comes with its own brush.

                  Would this make a good sheer topper over another shadow or is it too opaque? I'm looking at the color Earl Gray.

                    Hi Tess,

                    The ColorStay Crème Eyeshadows are more sheer. The Earl Grey can be used as a sheer topper if you just put 1-2 layers on. However, it is a buildable eye shadow that can be worn more pigmented/opaque as you put more layers on.

                    Hi!

                    Espresso and Chocolate will be the more matte shades, the rest will have a pretty shimmer to them :)
