(Sand Storm quad from the old line is a seriously beautiful classic. I am going to grab a backup before it's gone and so should you.)
The packaging looks to me less appealing and even backwards since it reminds me of the long-discontinued Revlon Wet/Dry eyeshadows.
There are 16 different quads available and that is a lot for a new introduction (they are supposed to start with a couple and add more colors and LEs later on, no?), but they look all muted and conservative except for maybe one. (again, backwards)
Still, I had to pick one for myself because I am a creature of curiosity. ;p
New Revlon ColorStay 16 hour Eye Shadow Quad Siren (525)
Nothing from the display looked interesting to me since many of the quads share same neutral shades.
I chose Siren which is Grey/Pruple smokey quad thinking this is very similar to Maybelline Charcoal Smokes quad.
See the resemblance? ;)
I like my Maybelline Charcoal Smokes since the purplish grey shades are quite pretty and the whole color combo is rather well-constructed, but I am not so crazy about glittery sheer black shade and the usual Maybelline chalkiness.
So basically I was thinking maybe this Revlon quad would be a great replacement.
I've only swatched the colors so I don't know for sure how they are in quality, but so far I am a bit underwhelmed.
The colors are pretty sheer and the texture feels a bit hard against my fingers.
And let me just say this.
Nothing stays for 16 hours and the old ones didn't stay for 12 hours either, so.
The Revlon Siren and Maybelline Charcoal Smokes swatches are similar as well.
