I am back with another review on the Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadows, but this time in the color – “Harmonious.” I recently picked this up at my local makeup store. The colors of the quad looked so beautiful together that I was tempted to buy it right away. Read on to see if I liked this palette as much as the colors in the Adventurous palette that I previously reviewed.

My Experience with Revlon Colorstay 16 Hour Eyeshadow – Harmonious:
This quad is a beautiful combination of a pearly white color, light pink, light green, and brown. When I bought this palette, I was excited to try it right away because I thought the color combination was just to die for. I was hoping the quality was just as good as the Adventurous palette that I once reviewed, but sadly, I was disappointed. The colors are just lightly pigmented, so I really had to rub hard to get a decent amount on the brush. The white and green colors were so difficult to swatch.
I had to apply multiple times for it to actually show up on the camera. Though, the pink and brown colors weren’t so tough to swatch, but they don’t have the pigmentation that I like. It was too powdery and not enough color to actually show up on my eyes. I don’t understand how one palette can be so deeply pigmented and another one be so bad. So, let’s just move on and talk about the packaging. I was never a fan of the packaging on the other palette, so this one is no different for me. The fact that the shades can come apart by just dropping it lightly any second freaks me out because I drop things a lot and I know if I drop this I will create a big mess, but I do like that it has a transparent window so you know what color you are picking up without having to open and look inside and it also has the name on top for quick reference. This also comes with a sponge tip applicator which is really of no use since it doesn’t pick up the colors very well. As far as the staying power goes, these did not last me a very long time (even while using a primer). The colors just seemed to disappear so I don’t think the 16 hour claim that Revlon makes applies here (sadly). Overall, I did not like this palette and I think this was a waste of my money.
Pros of Revlon Colorstay 16 Hour Eyeshadow – Harmonious:
- Pretty looking colors.
Cons of Revlon Colorstay 16 Hour Eyeshadow – Harmonious:
- Mild pigmentation.
- Weak packaging.
- Doesn’t last long.
