So far I am one for one with the new Revlon products I am trying out. I love the lip butters but find the sheerness of the sculpting blush palette unsuitable for my skin tone. Now they are back with a bang, a loud siren ringing out about their 16 hour eye-shadow quad called Siren. Even though there are 16 palettes, I just have a thing lately for grays and since I spend most of my time at work anyway, why not get a grey palette that maybe appropriate for the office.
I haven’t tried any of the Revlon 12 hour palettes so I can’t compare but I do know that these eye-shadows don’t last the 16 hours on me. They don’t even last a normal work day without some fading and creasing on my lids. Funny thing is that I was using the new Revlon Photoready primer and highlighter as my base! I guess for this alone the product doesn’t do what it claims and so you should just pass along right? Wrong, consider this! The colours are nicely pigmented and buildable. They are soft, smooth and easy to apply for me despite the loose dust that kicks up if you interfere too much with these shadows. I also fell in love with the matte charcoal grey! Of course this is just my personal taste in colours. I’m sure you can find a similar grey elsewhere and so pass along this quad.

I am also a sucker for a gimmick, maybe one day that will change. But the design of the palette actually considers the consumer. If you notice, the quad does not have equal amounts of each colour. They have designed it giving you amounts representative of how often and how much of each you will use.
Now I have strong yellow undertones but I can still pull off this cool tone quad of colours once I balance out my face with a warm coloured lippie. This is one of the ways I tried to make this quad work for me. So overall this quad has me on the fence with it, I neither hate it nor love it. It’s just ok. Ahhhhh these love/ hate relationships I have with my makeup!
Sounding the siren!
