Because I was so pleased with Brushed Copper, I couldn't wait to try out Revlon's Luxurious Color Eyeshadow in Peacock Lustre. In the packaging, it sort of reminded me of the NARS Underworld Duo -silvery slate blue so I had some high hopes.
The Packaging: The eyeshadow is packaged in a plastic, matte black compact and comes with a sponge tip applicator. I'm not a fan of cheapie packaging because they always end up getting broken (huge klutz here!)
Like I mentioned in my review of Brushed Copper, I just love the "accordion" design that's imprinted onto the eyeshadow itself. It looks so sweet and delicate.
The Product: I was a lot less impressed with Peacock Lustre than I was with Brushed Copper. While Brushed Copper had awesome pigmentation, Peacock Lustre applied a lot sheerer and I had to really layer it on to get good color payoff. I also felt that Peacock Lustre didn't last quite as long as Brushed Copper -even with a primer. It faded a bit throughout the day but not drastically (the primer really helped.) Other than that, Peacock Lustre feels smooth and doesn't irritate my skin -which I love.
The Color: Peacock Lustre, a satin finish, is a medium, silvery slate blue with silver shimmer. When I just apply one layer, it's very sheer and looks almost totally silver -you have to really layer it on to see the blue.

Overall: I'd recommend this if you're looking for a pretty slate blue at a low price. However, if you have a little extra cash, I'd skip it and look for a similar color at Sephora or MAC. That way, you get better color payoff and a longer wearing eyeshadow. It's good for the price but I just don't see myself using it since non-long wearing eyeshadows really irritate me.
