Revlon Photoready Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash: Review and Swatches
New for Holiday 2014,  Revlon is releasing a limited edition collection of glitter liner and liquid shadow duo perfect for creating a dazzling eye look for the festive season. The Revlon Photoready Eye Art Lid + Eye + Lash ($11.49 CAD) features an unique duo-ended package, with a creamy shadow on one end and a sparkly liner on the other. To see some swatches, click........

Packaging:
The Revlon Eye Art packaging is quite similar to that of the Revlon Nail Art polishes (reviewed here), except that it's plastic instead of glass. The side with the cream shadows applies with a simple standard doe-foot applicator and the side with the glittery liner comes with a small brush applicator.

Brush-tipped applicator.
Formulation:
Each Eye Art "pen" comes with a lightweight metallic creamy shadow. All shades are very pigmented but they take quite a long time to set. Also I recommend topping the cream shadows with some light translucent powder because I experienced quite a bit of creasing.
The other end of the "pen" features glitter suspended in a clear base (a couple of shades have a bit of pigment as well). The glitter can be used all over the base, as a liner, or even on the lashes for an extra bit of glimmer. They also take quite a while to dry so it's super important to apply the glittery coat after the base color dries.
Topaz Twinkle: Champagne metallic with a holographic gold glitter.
Gold Glitz: Pale gold metallic with a black and silver glitter.
Burnished Bling: Coppery metallic with a copper sparkle.

Overall:
I love the idea of these Revlon Photoready Eye Art shadow/glitter duos. The packaging is nice and compact but the formulation could use some work. The glitter liners are fine but the cream shadows take way too long to dry and creases quite a bit. Also, when the liner and shadow dry, they feel dry and heavy on the lids. So overall, love the idea but the execution could be improved upon.

Availability:
The Revlon Photoready Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash are available in stores now across Canada.
