Revlon ColorStay Quad Eyeshadow Palette – Review & Swatches

One comment



Hey friends! Welcome back to my blog. I can’t believe that it’s already time for summer collections… that’s both totally exciting and also a bit terrifying after how much I bought over spring with all the amazing sales and releases happening.


Today, I want to share with you these two Revlon ColorStay Quad Eyeshadow Palettes which I got a few days ago.

The Sea Mist is a new collection quad from Revlon while Exotic is the old-style quad. Now that I’ve used these shadows a number of times, I’d love to share my thoughts in case you haven’t tried them yet.


You know that I love eyeshadow palettes and so I was REALLY hoping these new and improved quads would be a better fit for me.

This palette includes four shadows: There’s no name to the shadows so I’m going to guess. Champagne (shimmer), Lavender Purple (matte), Yellow (matte) and lastly Ash Black (matte) in Exotic.


I really like the shades in this palette but the formula was rather disappointing. It was a tad powdery and low-impact on the pigmentation section. Lack of staying power unless you apply your eye primer on. I noticed that this one didn’t live up to its 16 hour claim. In fact, without primer, I saw fading and creasing within 5-6 hours after application.

I hate to say this but this Exotic old-style quad didn’t “wow” me. Like I said earlier, the colors and the combos are pretty, but the pigment just isn’t there.

In my opinion, I think this is not a terrible quad if you prefer shadows with less pigmentation. But then, why bother at all  when there are far better options in drugstores in the same price range. Correct! I do not recommend.


Bring on the spring looks! The new shade for this spring is: peach, dark purple, turquoise and dark green.

Let’s pause and take a moment for how beautiful this Sea Mist Quad Eyeshadow Palette is… okay, done. Honestly, I’ve never had all my favorite colors in a quad palette before. I was so excited when I saw this one.

I found the texture and blendability to be a nice improvement over the old-style quads I just mentioned above.


I’m just happy that these light, shades show up on my light-medium skin where I did one swipe for these swatches on bare skin. All the color swatches I did  in my posts, were with no primer or eye base unless I mention otherwise. It looks pretty decent, right!

Anyways, I find the pigmentation to be average but better than its predecessor, although using a primer beforehand makes the colors a bit more vivid and also keeps them in place. I want to point out that this shadow is easy to blend and makes it good for beginners.

The new quad, I would recommend to beginners as you can figure out what colors you like and not worry about wasting them on expensive high end products.

What’s your favorite products from Revlon this summer? Do you already own any of the new ColorStay quads? If so, what shades do you own and how do you like them? I love to hear what you think on the comments section.

Thanks for taking the time to read and I’ll see you very soon :) Bye guys!
