Review: Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks

Ever since I saw that these were released in the States, I couldn't wait for them to launch over here and they finally have. When I headed into Westfield last week and popped into boots, I knew I had to pick a couple of shades up! I picked up Sand (Pearl), Oyster (Metallic) and Purple (Matte), these retail for £2.99 each and are currently on 3 for 2 in Boots so if you want to get your hands on them, now is the time. What really attracted me to these shadows is that you can create your own palettes as they click together, I hate single eye shadows but I love the idea of being able to customise your own palette.

You can purchase as many shadows as you want to create a massive long palette or you can create mini looks with them, I am defiantly going to pick up some more shades and make little palettes with them for travelling etc. To connect the shadows together you just slide a shadow onto the side of another, I have decided for now to keep them all connected until I pick up some more shades and colour code them together.

The pigmentation of these shadows without primer isn't great, they are quite sheer but when your paying £2.99 you can expect high end pigmentation. When I applied the shadows with a primer (I used Benefit Stay Don't Stray), they looked a lot better. You can defiantly build up the colour to get more colour pay off. Sand does have quite a bit of glitter in it so when the colour fades most of the time all you are left with is glitter if you don't apply primer. 

Sand and Oyster are perfect highlight colours but I have used sand all over the lid on days when I don't want too much eye make up on. I love to use the purple shade under my waterline for a pop of colour. 

Swatches L-R: Sand, Oyster, Purple

I do really like these eye shadows for a wash of colour over the lids or for highlight/ pop of colour under the waterline and for £2.99 they aren't too expensive if you hate them. I will defiantly be picking up some more shades, I have my eyes on the blues and the darker shades. I really hope Revlon bring out clickable blushes and bronzers to make your own palettes for those too, that would be amazing!

These shadows are individually priced at £2.99 and are available in store and online at Boots

Have you tried these? What did you think?

  1. Sand and oyster look absolutely stunning x

  2. I love the idea of clickable eyeshadows!

  3. I love the concept of this, as unlike traditional palettes you can carry them as singles!

  4. These are quite well priced, I think the pigmentation is a little hit & miss but the concept is good
