Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks - Silver, Sand, Charcoal, & Lilac

Back in February I shared Revlon's Colorstay Shadowlinks Periwinkle, Lemon, & Gunmetal with you, and today I'm back with four more shades! The shade Silver, Sand, Charcoal, & Lilac* ($3.45 CAD/1.4g) are shades that all work well together, and can be used to create so many different looks. These shadows are sold individually, and you can easily slide each shadow into another to create your own personalized palette.

-Rich color in a variety of finishes from matte to sparkle
-All-day wear" - Revlon


From these four shadows, Charcoal is definitely my favourite. It is a matte formula, and it's made beautifully. It's creamy, pigmented, and easy to blend. This is the perfect shade to pop in your crease to deepen your look, and to blend all of your shadows together. Lilac is my second favourite, as it's a beautiful colour. However, it isn't as pigmented as I would have liked it to be. Silver and Sand are quite sheer, as you can see in the swatch below. Silver does add a pop of sparkle to your eyes, and Sand can be used as a brow bone highlight. I've used all of the shades to create the above look, without using a primer. When worn on their own, the shadows last for about 4 hours before fading. Primer can definitely prolong the wear time.

I've really been loving Charcoal, but I think that you can pass on the other three shades. I really wish that these shadows were more pigmented, and had a creamier formula. I do want to try out more of the matte shades, since Charcoal was so nice! The concept of a build your own palette is a great idea, and I hope that Revlon can reformulate these shadows in the future. Have you tried any of Revlon's Colorstay Shadowlinks? Which shades did you like, and which shades do you think I can pass on?

  3. Agree about the pearl/shimmer formulas. They are underwhelming.

  4. I can definitely tell from the swatch that the three shimmers are not very good :S

  7. Neat concept, but agree that these colors look a little too cheap and shimmery.

    1. Thanks! It is quite a nice shade, but I do wish that it was a bit more pigmented!

  9. Ok, I'm glad you said some of them seemed a little sheer because I have Lime and Gunmetal and I found Lime to be ESPECIALLY sheer.

  10. I got four of these from Revlon Selects but I haven't played around with them yet. Charcoal looks nice, especially for those who don't have similar shades!

  11. I like the concept, but need more pigmentation from shadows. It just isn't as much fun to play if they're too sheer.
