As promised I wanted to show some of my bolder makeup looks. I had picked up this cream eyeshadow palette from Revlon a few weeks ago, it's part of the Shanghai collection by Gucci Westman for Revlon.
Part of why I got it was the ads picture of Emma Stone - she looks fabulous and I love when I see a "pale" girl with lots of color on:
As you can see I didn't get the burgandy shadow as dark as Emma's in the picture - and I put a lot on in "real life" it was much more intense than this picture shows. It is a pretty combination but I think it need a more neutral lip. ( I used Revlon's Cherries in the Snow).
I have read reviews that said this product creases, but I had no problems, I also used a primer. In fact I felt that the cream eyeshadows were a bit dry, especially the burgandy and as you can see above I got more glitter than than color. Overall, although the ads are lovely I don't feel the product is user friendly or a palette you would reach for often.
Have you tried any of the Revlon Shanghai collection?
