Palette customization has gotten more and more important to me now that my makeup collection has grown. Ready made palettes always look so inviting, but when it comes to down practicality, there is always a lone shadow or two that rarely gets used while I’m pretty much hitting pan on just one! Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks allow you to customize a palette that is perfect for YOU and comes in 4 finishes and 30 eye shadow shades. There is definitely a colour for everyone!
Why the name “Shadowlinks”? Well, there are grooves on the sides of each eye shadow that slide and lock into each other! Kinda cool, right?
And here they are together at last! The connection is pretty sturdy although if you try to flex them in the middle, they probably will snap, but why would you want to do that?
I applied Lime to the inner to middle parts of my eyelid and then smoked it out with Gunmetal. Lime needed finger application as brush application was not pigmented enough and I found application to be quite sheer for this colour. Gunmetal fared much better, but I still stuck with patting on the colour as I wanted as much pigmentation as possible. I finished off with Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Ingénue.
Final Verdict: Light greens like “Lime” tend to get lost on me and come out looking more like a highlighter shade (which this colour is perfect for). I wish this colour was more pigmented as it looks like so much fun in the packaging! Thankfully Gunmetal behaved like a good little eye shadow and gave me the colour I wanted which leads me to believe that not all the colours in the Shadowlinks line are created equally. Nevertheless, I still love the idea of customizing and *clicking* together the shades that work best for me into a cute, portable, personalized palette. I wonder if someone out there has clicked all 30 shades into one VERY LONG palette?
What do you guys think of this new Shadowlinks collection? Have any of you picked some up?
