Revlon Matte Eyeshadows in Venetian Blue and Aubergine
I am a big fan of eyeshadows and I truly believe that a little colour on the eye totally brings out the brightness of one’s eyes. Initially, I used to just use a liner or khol, but then, I realised that one can use eyeshadow and not look overly made-up. After experimenting with lots of shimmery eyeshadows, I wanted to try matte ones and what better brand could I choose than Revlon. So, I went ahead and got Revlon Matte Eyeshadows in Venetian Blue and Aubergine, so let’s get on with it.
Product Description by Revlon:
Soft, suede-like textures glides over lids smoothly and evenly, provides high impact color ans a soft matte finish, feels smooth and luxurious on the eyes. Satin shades provide a smooth, shimmering finish. Pearl shades provide a sparkling crystallized finish. Matte shade provides a creamy rich finish.
- Pink Innocence.
- Rivera Blue.
- Rich Sable.
- Vintage Lace.
- Peach Sorbet.
- Venetian Blue.
Rs. 430 for 2.4 gm approximately (I got some discount, so I don’t really remember the real price).
The packaging it comes is this sturdy, black pack, making it travel friendly and a tiny brush which can be used at desperate times. Since it’s a complete matte product, it can be used for day wear. It has no shimmer whatsoever, so people like me using shimmery one might find it a little dull. Now, the pigmentation being a matte eyeshadow is not all that great, but here’s the trick; use it with a base or water (that’s what I did) and voila, it looks great and stays like forever and does not crease or fallout.
The colour builds up with a couple of swipes. Though the price is on the higher side, but this product will last for a really long time, so it’s a good deal. The colour glides like a dream and its so easy to apply.
The colour of Venetian Blue is a deep blue shade and Aubergine is more or less a wine/mauve colour , which looks great when used for a smokey look.
Swatches: First two without base or water and two swipes and the second one with two with water and two swipes.
Pros of Revlon Matte Eyeshadows in Venetian Blue and Aubergine:
- Good colour.
- When used with base/water, it looks great and lasts long.
- Good range of shades available.
Cons of Revlon Matte Eyeshadows in Venetian Blue and Aubergine:
- Price is a bit on the higher side.
- Has to be used with a base/water for the colour to show up.
- Aubergine might show up on dusky beauties, but Venetian Blue will.
It’s a good buy, but dusky beauties, you have to check the colours if it will show up on you or not and then buy it, so I guess for some of the shades, you will have to go old school and go buy them from stores and not online, but light-skinned gals need not worry. I read Neha’s review on teal and I totally agree with her, and I got teal as well and the colour does not show well on me, but Blue and Aubergine does.
