Revlon Matte Eye Shadows

Some of you may have seen these swatches before, as I've been basically sitting on them since March (part of my backlog of swatches that need to be posted...). Hopefully that's not too big of a deal!

On the whole, I was reasonably impressed with these, just because there aren't that many good matte eyeshadows available in the drugstore, and these are definitely of decent quality. I found the first four in the swatch picture (Vintage Lace through Luscious Lime) to be a little bit chalky, but not too bad. I absolutely LOVE the other five, though. I can't see myself wearing Venetian Blue except maybe some Halloween, but the last four (Tempting Teal through Rich Sable) are just stunning and all could make great crease colors. I've heard Vintage Lace compared to MAC Blanc Type; the colors are pretty similar, but I do prefer the MAC Matte² formula in this case (Blanc Type is smoother and more pigmented than Vintage Lace). On that note, though, I'd say that the last five shades in the swatches definitely have a feel and finish similar to MAC Matte²s.

These are $5 each in most drugstores, and you can often find Revlon BOGOF. Cool, huh?

Matte Eyeshadow: Vintage Lace, Peach Sorbet, Pink Innocence, Luscious Lime, Venetian Blue, Tempting Teal, Riviera Blue, Aubergine, Rich Sable


  1. Oooh, I don't usually like mattes, but Aubergine and Rich Sable are prettty!

  2. ooh rich sable and riviera blue look nice! thanks for the swatches :)

  3. I already own Riviera Blue, but after seeing this swatches, I'll probably buy Aubergine and Rich Sable also...

  4. I've got the second shade - Peach Sorbet, and I've been using this on a daily basis for almosta an year and a half now... It's the only eyeshadow that I've ever hit pan on :D
