Revlon CustomEyes - Metallic Chic & Party Pops

Metallic Chic

Party Pops

I have been eyeing these Revlon palettes since I first saw them at Walgreens not long ago because they just recently surfaced on the market along with the new Colorburst lipglosses, which I'm also dying to try out more colors. On the side note, I have the Colorburst Lipgloss in the shade Bordeaux, which I reviewed a little while back so if you missed out on my review, feel free to check it out by clicking here.
These CustomEyes palettes were on BOGO sale at Ulta last week, so I picked up two of them. The retail price is around $8.99. Definitely, look out for the sales if you want to try these.

  • I like the fact that it's sleek and compact and has a view window.
  • It comes with a sponge tip applicator, which I don't particularly care for.
  • It doesn't include a little mirror but that's ok because I normally rather use my large mirror.
  • I don't like that it open on the wide side (personal preference). It just feels odd.
  • There is a diagram on the back of the palette to show you where to place the eyeshadows. I didn't notice that at first but when I saw it I thought it was neat.

  • You get 5 different shades. They all have pretty much the same texture and are shimmery, if you ask me.
  • I really like the quilted pattern of the shadows. I think it's cute.
  • I am sooo DISAPPOINTED. This product did not live up to my expectation. Major lack in pigmentation, GRRR! I don't know if you can tell from the swatch. They look nothing like that on my eyes.
  • I tried to create a look with this palette and the colors look pale and ashy. That is a major turn off for me. No matter how much I try to pack on the colors, it just doesn't show up like I want it to.
Don't buy this! The pigmentation is just horrible. I wished the colors had different textures and finishes. I'll give it a 2/10. Two points for the packaging, the rest is a disaster. I am definitely going to return these.

  1. Aw, I'm glad you reviewed these and I'm sad they didn't work out for you :( The pigmentation looks horrible! I saw some other gurus review the neutral palette from this collection and they said it was quite pigmented. Maybe the quality varies from quad to quad :/

  2. What! that's a lie! LIES! lol...this is the worst pigmentation ever. They must be out of their minds.

  3. hey there,

    maybe u could try applying the shadows wet? The pigment might go on stronger when applied wet.
