Review of Revlon's Illuminance Creme Shadow

After watching a Youtube videos girls using this, I decided to go to Walgreens and buy a set knowing full well that if it sucked, I would return it. The one I bought was in Wild Orchids because purples are known to make brown eyes pop.
I tried the colors on my hand and they were just so pretty

Take One!

Ok, so let's see how this baby holds up after a few hours of work? I applied the lightest shade (first color in the picture) to my lids with no primer (yeah I know creme shadows + no primer=nothing good) here is a picture of the result:

EWwww...Creasing like it was nobody's business. Its ok, I have no one to impress at work anyways. I still liked the color on my lids. I decided to give it another go.

Take Two!

So yesterday I would be in meetings and all that stuff so there would be no time to be fussing with my makeup. I applied UDPP and used Loreal's Hip Duo in Rascal on the outer crease.

It held up! Yay!

My next trip to the drugstore, I will definitley be purchasing more colors. It gives a nice base and really makes colors pop. There will be plenty of experimenting to do. A primer is an absolute must or its a no go. This thing will crease like it has no momma. I also suggest you use a powder shadow over it to prevent creasing as well. They were 6.99 at my Walgreens but I am sure you can find them cheaper.

I picked this eyeshadow years ago when Allure Magazine recommended this palette. I remember it creasing, but it's so pretty.
