The shade “Java” is a medium brown with silver shimmer specks. It is more of a chocolate brown shade and very similar to the L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Endless Chocolate, but the Revlon one has shimmer. The shimmer particles are very finely milled and blended with the color. It is a beautiful shade, the shimmer doesn’t look very dominating, so I think it would work fairly well for day as well as evening.

Texture and Pigmentation:

The texture of this eyeshadow is decently soft and smooth, please do not compare it with the Inglot eyeshadows, but this eyeshadow is not bad either in texture. This shade has very similar formula to the shade “Copper” that I have reviewed earlier. It glides easily without any tugging. The shimmer is delicate and finely milled, it doesn’t feel gritty or chunky. This eyeshadow does not have any major fall outs.

The pigmentation of this eyeshadow is quite low. It doesn’t show up well in a single swipe, you need to layer the product at least thrice to show up well. If you are using a little dense eyeshadow brush, you have to hit the pan several times to build up the color. This eyeshadow can also be tricky as the more color you would want to layer, you would also land up with some more of shimmer. 😛

Staying Power:

The eyeshadow has a low staying power. It stays on me for only about 2 hours and then starts fading. The color fades first leaving some shimmer particles behind. A primer underneath is highly recommended and a must for me to make these work better. The low staying power is definitely a turn off for the product.
