Revlon Eyeshadow Plum Galaxy: a review. *picture heavy*

Pin It now!

Revlon has come up with some new eye shadows. Now out of the few they had, I was immediately attracted to Plum Galaxy. I have an affinity for purple eyeshadows and I thought this one would be another nice addition. Now granted, I did see that it has glitters hence the name "diamond lust" (more like diamond dust, to me). I already have some glitter eyeshadows in my arsenal, so I had to keep an open mind how this one will operate.

When I used this eyeshadow, I have to admit I had some issues with it. First of all, this eyeshadow will not work ( to me) with just an eyeshadow primer. No my friend, YOU will need a sticky base like a cream eyeshadow or the la splash base. And if you to buy this eyeshadow with the sole purpose of just having a glittery eyeshadow. THINK again, because you are setting yourself up for disappointment. This eyeshadow will work best if you layer it with other eyeshadows. Using it on its own (unless you have a real sticky base) won't cut it. The micro-glitters in blueish purple are beautiful, yes--BUT again you have to work it with a base. I really did not experience fall out, but the la splash did wonders on me on making sure the glitters adhered to my lids.

So will I recommend this eyeshadow? It depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a glittery eyeshadow to layer other purple eyeshadows, then absolutely. It will enhance your eyeshadow by a bit. If you already have glitters like the ones its showing in the pictures, I would say then pass.
