While at CVS last week, trying to find things to use my extra bucks on, I saw Revlon was having a sale and I spotted this new Diamond Lust shadow line from them.
I opted for the silver because it looked SO sparkly and had lots multi colored glitter in it!
Then I swatched it…thats when my excitement started to dwindle. Swatch on the R is over primer, swatch on L is on bare skin. It applied so sheer and patchy, it was hard to get a decent swatch. (I think I went over each like 3 times!) Also, there was a massive amount of fallout…it looked like a disco ball exploded on my face. The formula was also very gritty, i’m assuming because of all the glitter.
I applied primer on my eve and used my finger to gently pat it on, but still, fallout city…
Its hard to tell in the photos, but once its on it DOES look really pretty. It didn’t really show up in my pictures, but it looked pretty opaque in real life and much more sparkly. (Thats why I included the blurry shot, because it shows the multi colored sparkles more.) These shadows are perfect for a night out, but I would prep under your eyes with a heavy coating of powder before you apply it, so you can just sweep the powder off after. I couldn’t really tell if more kept falling off throughout the day because there were already sparkles on my face, but at the end of 6 hrs the shadow seemed to be mostly intact with minimal fading.
While I would wear this shadow again, I don’t think I will be buying anymore shades…
Have you tried any Diamond Lust shadows? What are you tips on handling glitter fallout??
Thanks so much for reading, hope you have a thrilling Thursday! xoxo, Kristina
