While After Christmas shopping, I stopped by CVS to look for the new ColorBurst lipsticks in Petal and Pink Sugar. I didn't have any luck finding the lippies but I did come across all the new Covergirl products (I didn't buy any) and some new Revlon Displays including the new Revlon CustomEyes palettes. I quickly scooped one up in Naturally Glamorous gor today's Nudey Tuesday.
The Packaging: The compact for Revlon's CustomEyes palettes are similar to Revlon's others but they're sleeker. Combine this with the new quilting design and you have something that looks almost as though it came off the department store shelves!
The new compacts are all black with a clear "window" in the front displaying the colors inside. The cover opens backwards, like a Japanese comic book -this kind of confused me because I'd prefer that it open in the other direction but it's not a big deal. Inside, you also get a double-sided sponge applicator -one side has a normal oval tip while the other side contains a pointed tip.
Product Description & Tips
I'm honestly not amazed but then again, I'm not disappointed either. I'd say these eyeshadows are better than the ones from my Maybelline Eye Studio quads, have better texture but not as good pigmentation compared to my Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon eyeshadows, and fall below the excellent quality of my Revlon Luxurious Color eyeshadow singles.
