I really liked this ColorStay Cr?me Eye Shadow in Honey because its so creamy. This color is not one I would normally wear on a daily basis but its so pretty I needed to see how well it looked on my skin tone. What I first noticed it has some shimmer. Though the color is honey its more of a yellow gold. I swiped it once with the brush which is included in the packaging. It goes on very light and subtle but applying more swipes, the color can become more bold and noticeable. I love this because it means I was able to wear it during the day for work but also for a night out and create a more bold look. I love that it doesn't have any fragrance to it and being one with sensitive skin it doesn't cause any skin irritation either. I like the brush it comes with but I preferred to use this eye shadow with my finger tips better. Makes it easier for me to apply.
I bought this at my local drug store. I'm sorry but I think the company needs to work on packaging. It took me 30 minutes to get the container open. I tried everything and finally had to take a knife, break the packaging, just to get it open and almost sliced my fingers in the process. I would suggest creating a package that is easier to open otherwise it takes away from the product itself. It doesn't matter how great the product is if people are frustrated just by trying to open the package. I almost ended up throwing it out because it was so frustrating to open. I'm not sure you want buyers to have that impression before even trying the product.

I always had to put on a cream base before powder eye makeup because powder would iritate my lids. And i would put powder on with a sponge applicator could not use a brush. Finger application is great and goes on well, what took them so long to come up with this i will never go back to powder

I've used this product for years! After the last purchase, I broke out in a severe allergic reaction (unbearable itchy eyelids with swelling, redness, and flaking) that sent me to urgent care where I had to have a steroid shot, cream, and drops. Revlon changed something in the formula😩

I'm purchasing my third shade. I already own Caramel and Cognac (I think has been discontinued), now I'm purchasing Praline. The darker shades are patchy, but the lighter shades are amazing and don't crease or fade on my hooded eyes. Beautiful!!

I've been using this product for years but with my most recent purchase to replenish my supply, I had an allergic reaction. My eyelids got red and itchy. Revlon must have changed the formulation.

This is impossible to open. I would love to use it, but can't get it open. Whoever designed that packaging should be fired.

It's very lustrous, kind of like a creme highlighter. The creme is hard though and at first swipe, it's not too pigmented but it is buildable. Very pretty but it smells so bad, it's sharp and pretty strong too :(.

Blends beautifully and stays put all day and into the evening. Beats all the expensive brands in terms of application. I just wish they'd update the colors to offer more neutrals and more mattes.

Fantastic cream shadow. These eye shadows work fabulously using a finger for your base coverage. But, I also love the little brush included for detailing. I am thrilled that they have the matte black color. I have not tried it yet, but believe it will be my next favorite top lid eyeliner. These blend so much better than shadow crayons. Keep on adding more colors!!! Would love a darker brown/black!! They have perfect consistency to allow you to blend. But don't BUDGE once dried. FANTASTIC for contact lens wearers. And, you don't get the crumbles all around your eyes during application!! A dot of one of the light colors in the inner corners of the eyes gives you the look of well rested, and refreshed eyes! Instant 8 hours of sleep!! I'm a licensed professional, and I recommend these cream shadows!!! Even if you are a novice, you won't be disappointed!!

You cannot open this if the little brush is in place. Remove the brush (throw it away…useless) and you can twist it open MAYBE. Once I got to the product, I discovered it's very sheer and does not build well. Plus side? It's extremely smooth with no chunky texture.

I like it. I got the pink and it is beautiful. Shimmery without being glittery. I like cream shimmer better than powder, looks smoother.

I bought the chocolate color and loved it. Based upon the description from this website I bought the espresso which is described as alco being matte. It absolutely is not matte. So disappointed in the false information giving here.

i've been on the hunt for a good cream eyeshadow since they discontinued maybelline's bad to the bronze. revlon's little pot in the color CARAMEL is not a color match; it's a light bronze color, but i really like its light, creamy consistency and very wearable sparkle. it's not as dimensional as i would prefer from a "one and done" eyeshadow, BUT it makes the perfect base for other eyeshadows. i tend to apply this all over my lids (don't even need to wear a primer, but it does crease a tiny bit after a few hours if i don't) and then go over with a light dusting from a deeper shimmery taupe to deepen the color. this makes it super versatile as i can change up what shadows i layer over it, and the powder helps set the cream so this doesn't budge all day while giving me that expensive, grungy-bronze off-the-runway look.

My staple Maybelline tattoo studio creme shadow was reformulated and re-released a few years ago. The built in brush is not designed for functionally, and the product is disappointing. Rarely I give 1 star, but this deserves it l.

I have used this creme eyeshadow for years and have emptied the jar many times. I adore the shades espresso and chocolate they blend like a dream, smoke nicely and never crease which is magic as everything else creases on me within moments of application. The only thing I would chance is that some of the shades are hard to find, I wish iI could find Cognac as well as others. I would love to see more colors after all these years,.I have nightmares of this product being discontinued. Please never ever do this!

The Revlon ColorStay Creme Eye Shadow is a favorite of mine. It's the perfect consistency-nice and creamy but not soft. The color in my pics is shade 730 Praline, which is a very unique color. I'm not even sure how to explain the color... It's like a pinkish orangish brownish shimmer that is awesome for making brown eyes pop. It stays on for a long time without smudging or wiping off. The pot it comes in holds quite a bit so it should last a long time. Never had any issues with it irritating my eyes or skin. It's all around great.

Cherry blossom is my new fave … could barely open the jar tho! Just applied with my finger.

I have the color Caramel and this is the best drugstore formula cream shadow I have ever used. I actually prefer this to CT Oyster Pearl and it costs a fraction of the CT. Doesn't budge and wears well. Highly recommend!

I purchased two gorgeous colors and was happy with the sturdy packaging which enable you to tightly close the lids. Unfortunately I don't enjoy them because I have to tug and pull on my lids to get them to apply, and that is after digging a clump out to warm between fingers to try to make it creamy.

I absolutely love this stuff, caramel is the most beautiful color and it looks amazing on my 60+ eyes , I just love it

Goes smoothly. Stays on all day. Buildable. Amazing price and better than much more expensive equivalent products.
