Hi girls, Here comes my first review on “Revlon’s Illuminance Crème Shadow”.. Hope you will like it .. Revlon has been really impressive with their products and I am very much satisfied with the Revlon products I have bought till now; however, I had never used any other crème shadows before buying this coz all I had was powder eye shadows..And I like to wear eye shadow in my daily makeup while going to office also..so I wanted the eye shadow which should not look too heavy as well as it should be long lasting. I thought to give a try to crème shadow.. Initially I saw this product on Revlon’s website and then I decided to try Revlon’s Illuminance Crème Shadow.. And so here I am with the shadow and till I am writing this blog I have used this 4 times and I quite like this shadow. After using this I m thinking to use powder eye shadow only in functions or big events as the powder shadow gives very heavy look and people clearly recognizes that you have applied shadow where as this crème shadow gives natural look. Anyways I have 3 different palettes and one quad palette from Loreal as well as Revlon of powder eye shadow so now I am planning to increase my Crème eye shadow stock and include different shades from different company, my next target would be MAC Paint Pot (after reading Rati’s review on this I am very much tempted to MAC’s Paint Pot, but since its too pricey I am saving some money for that)

Revlon Illuminance Crème Shadow comes in twelve palettes, each containing four shades. Here are the available Shades with their swatches:
I have Copper Coast shade and the slapstick is that this shade is not listed on the website of Revlon.. hehehe. Here are the images of my “Revlon’s Illuminance Crème Shadow – Copper Coast”, my swatch contains – Dull white, Light Copper, Peach and Dark Brown colors with the shimmer.
Although there are only four shades, I use light copper and Peach color for formal look and Dark brown shade for night and Smokey eyes with brown powder shadow..
My Copper Coast Swatch See its written on the Palette – “Copper Coast”.. Then why it’s not listed on the site??? 🙁 So here are the colors on my hand…
WOW Factors about the Revlon’s Illuminance Crème Shadow:
- The crème glides on eye lids very well and it is not so sticky. • It lasts for a long time on my lids maintaining the look.
- The shadows are fairly pigmented and not as greasy. • The shadow is full of shimmer and glam.
- It gives luminous and dazzling look to the eyes.
- It blends well and looks beautiful on the eyes.
- You can create your own combinations of color by layering it on your lids.
- The texture is very smooth and creamy. • Very wide range of colors for selection.
- Weightless so doesn’t feel heavy on your eye lids and it’s easy to remove.
- Since its Ophthalmologist tested, it doesn’t harm ur eyes and its safe.
- You can use it every day as well as for the functions or events also as the colors are very sheer and shimmery.. for natural look just apply one light layer of it and you are done!!
- You can also use this as a base and then you can apply powder eye shadow over it.
- Or u can apply it over your powder eye shadow for enhancing an eye shadow and making the color more vibrant.
- Since its in crème form application becomes more easy..
- The case is very small and manageable so that you can carry it with you anywhere and it will not take much space.
- The Case is pretty slim and is light weight and it looks sleek and sophisticated
Negative Points which I see:
- The shadows do crease but if you put them on lightly they won’t crease, for office or for daily makeup I apply very light layer of it so it doesn’t look too heavy and jazzy..
- No applicator included so it would have been better if it had an applicator.
- If not applied properly will look unnatural so you have to be careful while applying the shadows.
- This product is not recommended for those with the Oily eye lids.
- You have to use fingertips coz if you use brush then it will stick on to the brush and will get wasted.
- It creases and doesn’t last on the oily eyelids.
- The quality of the case is not so good.. Today only the case fell from my hand and the lid got separate from the case..But I was lucky enough as I was able to fix it again… 🙂
Conclusion: To summing up, I like this product and I am also planning to buy ‘Not Just Nudes’ shade. And it is worth the money.
