Revlon Eyes, Cheeks + Lips Palette in "200 Seductive Smokies": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The product featured was provided for review.
In addition to some gorgeous nude eyeshadow palettes, Revlon also has two brand new full face palettes coming your way! With six shadows, four lip colors and a blush, the Eyes, Cheeks + Lips Palette makes makeup application easy and stress-free. To see some swatches of the "200 Seductive Smokies" variation, click.......

The Eyes, Cheeks + Lips Palette comes in a simple black plastic compact. The lid has a large clear opening with a small, narrow strip of mirror on the underside. You get six shadows at 1.29 grams each, four lip products at 1 gram each, and one blush at 3.9 grams. I do not like the inclusion of both cream and powder products in one palette; in fact, I already have some eyeshadow flecks stuck in the lip products. Included are also some mini applicators (blush, lips, and duo-ended sponge applicators); unfortunately, they aren't well-made, so I can't really imagine using them unless you have no other options.

The "200 Seductive Smokies" includes six grey-themed shadows. All the shades are shimmery and the majority of them are very pigmented and silky. I find the two lighter shimmers to be too sheer but the other four shades are all pretty impressive for a drugstore formulation!

The included lipglosses are both fairly sheer. You get a transparent shimmer and a soft red. The formulation is decent- non-sticky and lightweight. The lipstick colors included have a much better pigmentation; there is a true red and a beautiful rose nude. I think the formulation for all the lip products is great but I personally don't like lipstick in pan forms so I wish the palette included more shadows instead.

Lastly, you get what appears to be a beautiful neutral pink blush in the pan. Unfortunately, the formulation is incredibly sheer and dry; with six to seven hard swipes on my arm (see swatches below), I still couldn't get a lot of color to show.

The Revlon Eyes, Cheeks + Lips Palettes are coming soon in stores and online at London Drugs.
