Revlon Luxurious Color Perle Eye Shadow ($4.99)
045 Black Galaxy -a sparkly grayish, black shade
055 Sunlit Sparkle – a sparkly cream shade
I noticed instead of having a shimmery, perle finish, the shadows had a matte finish with sparkles. I’m not sure I’m a fan of that. In fact, I don’t think I’m a fan of these shadows at all. I’m not sure what I was expecting. I do know I didn’t want to be bombarded with sparkles.

Revlon Luxurious Color Matte Eye Shadow ($4.99)
001 Vintage Lace -a matte highlight shade with a tinge of yellow
002 Peach Sorbet – a matte highlight shade with a tinge of pink
009 Rich Sable – a matte chocolate brown shade
Overall, I felt the eye shadows were rather chalky and weren’t as pigmented as I had hoped they would be. Since they were chalky, the staying power wasn’t all that great. However, the eye shadows are amazingly soft and go on so smooth.

Revlon Luxurious Color Satin Eye Shadow in 010 Polished Bronze ($3.99)
Revlon’s Luxurious Color Satin Eye Shadow in 010 Polished Bronze is one of my favorite brown shades to use. It’s gorgeous! The shadow goes on so smooth and blends so easily. There’s a slight shimmer, but it’s quite pigmented. Paired with an eyeshadow primer, the Revlon Luxurious Color Satin Eye Shadow lasted for hours and didn’t crease. It is totally worth it. It’s even better when it’s on sale!

Rimmel London Colour Rush Trio Eye Shadow ($3.65) 8 hours soft and blendable Trio eyeshadow. Pure colour impact. Blends easily. Crease-proof.
Overall, I wasn’t very impressed with the Rimmel London Colour Rush Trio Eye Shadows. I thought they lacked pigmentation, which is such a shame, because the color combos they had were really pretty. To get the colors to show up, I had to take a few layers before the color would show up. I also noticed the lasting power wasn’t that great either. By the end of the day, the color had disappeared and all I was left with was sparkly shimmer.
I own 2 Rimmel London Colour Rush Trio Eye Shadows. I have them in 624 Lynx and 730 Spices.
624 Lynx: shimmery white and purple and matte brown shades. I guess I can use this for the day time since the colors don’t show up very well, but I was hoping to use this at night for a soft smoky eye.
730 Spices: 3 shimmery peachy, nude shades. Oh boy! I could barely get the 3 shades to show up. I kept seeing shimmer. If I could get the color to show up, they looked so similar to each other that it was different to distinguish between them .

L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duo ($7.99)
To read about the overall performance of the L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duos, read my review here.
This review is for the following shades: Charisma 518, Poppy 807, Foxy 808, and Mischief 908.
Charisma 518 -a pinky purple and grape purple. The pinky purple looks very pretty in the pan, but barely shows up on my skin. You really have to layer it on for the shade to be visible. The grape purple is very pigmented, but it doesn’t show up as bold as it is in the pan.
Poppy 807 -a matte golden mustard yellow and matte brown. I’m not a fan of these shades. I feel something is missing. I know they are matte shades, but I just feel it needs something to make them pop and more noticeable.
Foxy 808 -a shimmery soft pink and matte dark brown. I love the shimmery pink shade. Even though it doesn’t really show up, it gives off a pretty romantic vibe. It’s a great highlight shade. I wish the brown wasn’t so dark. It would’ve been the perfect duo if the brown was a bit lighter.
Mischief 908 - a shimmery golden champagne and matte dark greyish blue. I love this duo. I use the shimmery golden champagne shade as a highlight and the dark greyish blue for a smokey eye effect. The greyish blue shade is so dark it’s almost black.
