Revlon Selects: Photoready Eyeshadow + Primer Metropolitan

Hi lovelies!

Today’s review is on the Revlon Photoready Eyeshadow + Primer palette in Metropolitan*. As soon as I saw this in my Revlon Selects box I was instantly in love with the colours. Browns and golds really make blue eyes pop, and this palette certainly did that for my eyes.

On the back of the palette it shows you where to place each eyeshadow, however you are not limited to that it’s more of just a guideline. For girls just starting out with makeup this palette would be perfect for you- it gives you a full eye look so you do not have to worry about colour combinations. It also has everything you need in one palette and is easy to throw into your makeup bag or purse. You can also transform your look from day to night effortlessly which is a plus.

To my surprise I found that the primer wasn’t a cream but actually a powder. I was slightly dissappointed at this as I found that using the powder primer underneath the other shadows really hindered the opacity of the shadows. If you have oily lids like myself your eye makeup will surely crease if you don’t use a primer such as Urban Decay or some sort of eyeshadow base beforehand. The other shadows have a very nice texture, blend nicely, and have very little fall out. The only shadow that I had a problem with fall out was the sparkle top coat because it has chunky glitter, but holding a tissue underneath your eye will keep it from falling down onto your cheeks and ruining your base. I created a look below using the palette’s recommendations (minus the primer) and included swatches of the shadows as well for you.

All in all I really enjoyed this palette, the colours are beautiful and they wear nicely. I would give this product a 4/5, and recommend it. What do you think of the Revlon Photoready palettes?

Take care and Happy Holidays!
