Revlon Photoready Eyeshadow + Primer Review

Today, I have the pleasure of showing you some new Revlon products, including the new Revlon Photoready Eyeshadow + Primer. I’ve also included a makeup tutorial using the quad in Avant Garde, which will be the main focus of this post.

Revlon Photoready Eyeshadow + Primer


As you can imagine, I was very stoked to have been contacted by Revlon to receive and test out some of their new products! I’m a huge fan of Revlon’s lip products. The Revlon New Complexion Compact Foundation was the first foundation I used back in high school (but let’s not go down memory lane).

The new products I received are:

  • Revlon Photoready Eyeshadow + Primer in Avant Garde 525
  • Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Intense Eye Liner + Brightener Carbon Cleopatra 001
  • Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Intense Eye Liner + Brightener Blue Nile 002

  • Revlon Lash Potion Volume + Length Mascara by Grow Luscious

Eyeshadow + Primer in Avant Garde 525

There are pros and cons about this palette. They swatch well and they are pigmented shadows which are easy to blend without looking patchy. There’s a selection of 8 quads to choose from.

The bottom large shadow is suppose to be a primer shadow, but I wouldn’t bother using it as a primer. I have the oiliest lids this time of the year and it would not suffice. It still makes a nice base color and helps intensify the colors you place over it. If it hadn’t been advertised as a primer, I would have overlooked that the shadows require a primer outside of the palette to stay on longer.

Another con is the glittery shade at the bottom right. My brush doesn’t pick it that shade as well as my finger would. Likewise, there isn’t a single matte shadow in this palette/quad, but at least the colors are not overly glittery.

The entire palette consists of shades that are easily sheered out if you over blend. This means you may have to re-apply colors after blending out the edges of your look. I personally don’t mind, because it means that I have an easier time blending. If intensity is an issue for you when using one of the Revlon Photoready Eyeshadow + Primer palettes, you may want to try using them wet.

As for packaging, it is pretty standard. I prefer the matte finish of the old ColorStay eye shadow packaging, but I like the layout of these palettes. If you are a beginner with eyeshadow, they have pretty much spelled out how to use this palette with the layout and instructions on the back.

I love this concept! I would highly recommend checking out the Kajal Intense Eye Liner + Brightener range as the brightener side glides onto the water line beautifully. I find them to be long wearing, they aren’t very creamy but they do deposit color well. I especially like the lighter side on the Blue Nile pencil, because it’s a nice twist to the nude pencil I normally use.

As for the Lash Potion, I prefer this wand over the original Grow Luscious, but it has a dry formula. I usually prefer wet formulas because I feel like I’m actually coating my lashes as opposed to just combing them.

It definitely succeeds at separating the lashes. It claims to add volume and length, but I don’t find it dramatic in any way. I’m hearing speculation of this mascara being a dupe for the Dior Show Mascara, but I can’t judge.

I have only used it twice and I’m weird about mascara. Sometimes, I instantly fall in love with them, other times it takes me a couple of weeks (I’ll keep you posted).
