Pretty Playgirl: Antique Gold, Blue Satin, Jade & Purple Neon Loose Eye-Shadows

Playgirl Cosmetics is the sister brand to CaraMia and are both made in Trinidad. Somebody say “Go Local!” This was another line of products in which I couldn’t find a single swatch for or review on so I had to bit the bullet and make the plunge into these products myself.
They currently have 22 colours but these are the 4 colours that caught my eye. I’ll be on the hunt until I get them all.
They come in a small plastic gold pot with a clear lid so it’s really easy to see the colour inside. If you’re a MAC fan, the Playgirl containers are about the same size (diameter and height) as the MAC eye-shadow pots. The lids are screw top ones though and there is a clear protective plastic on top of the loose eye-shadow. These containers come full to the brim with eye-shadow so this clear plastic comes in handy to prevent spillovers.
Antique Gold: Rich gold colour with sparkle.
Blue Satin: Dark blue shimmer with purple duochrome
Jade: Green with sparkle.
Purple Neon: Soft lilac sparkle.

I tested these for wear. I used Purple Neon for the inner half of the lid and Blue Satin for the other half of the lid blending the two colours in the middle. Awesome combination btw! Using just a touch of NYX eye-shadow base I got a very long wear. Actually I wore these colours for 12 hours and I got very little creasing, creasing didn’t occur until about 8 hours after application. But you do get some eye-shadow sparkle fallout.
Overall these loose eye-shadows are extremely pigmented and for that alone I would considered them a success. They are also soft and smooth in texture. Easy to apply but if you are like me I get loose eye-shadows all over the place. I definitely would have preferred them in the compact form. I have a hard time picking a favourite out of this bunch, it’s a close tie between Blue Satin and Jade.
So what do you think about Playgirl eye-shadows?
Happy Shopping!

    1. Imagine they have 18 more colours! I'm heading to Pennywise to see what other colours I can get.

  3. Chants, I got the Antique gold first and loved it so much that I began raving about it to my friends. You know these girlies apparently had this all along and loved it too! Why didnt they tell me sooner!

  4. I lost mine but it was seriously one of the best gold e/s I ever had. It blew mac goldmine out of the water for me. I always forget to get a new one at pennywise. its one of those forgotten treasures for everyone i guess.

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
