My Experience with Makeup Revolution Insomnia Mono Eyeshadow:

I will begin with the packaging of the eyeshadow which is simple and apt for the price charged. The eyeshadow comes in a black rectangular pan with a clear flip lid. There is no applicator provided with this eyeshadow. The lid closes with a click. What I really like about the packaging is the fact that it is extremely sturdy and travel friendly.  The quantity of the product is amazing per its price. At the back of the pan, the ingredient list is printed.

Shimmer eyeshadow

“Insomnia” is a beautiful purple shimmery shade, purple with brown undertones. I literally lost sleep when I got this eyeshadow. This is my perfect purple, you know “mera wala purple.” 😛 The pigmentation of this eyeshadow is great. One swipe will impart a beautiful purple colour on the eyes. To get the colour as in the pan, two swipes will be sufficient.

When used to create a smokey eye look, the beauty of this eyeshadow is enhanced manifolds. It is the prettiest purple that I know, classy and attractive without actually being loud.  The staying power of this eyeshadow is pretty decent. I am not yet into eye primers, but this one stayed on my non-oily lids for a good 4.5-5 hours without a primer.

It applies very smoothly and has a  satiny texture. Despite its shimmery finish, it does not feel gritty at all on the lids. It blends easily and does not settle into fine lines nor does it crease.  A drawback of this eyeshadow that I found was that it has fallout issues and also it has parabens.
