Revlon PhotoReady Impressionist Palette - Review, Photos & Swatches!

February 19, 2013

I am impressed, let's start off with that! I received the Impressionist Palette in a package for review by Revlon and I can already see myself using this very often. I have reviewed another PhotoReady palette in Metropolitan previously, here

All the shadows are shimmery or glittery. It came with 2 double sided sponge-tip applicators. 
Bottom left  - right 
Primer - It has a creamy like texture but is definitely a powdered shadow. I don't find it necessarily acts like a primer would but it is a nice shadow none-the-less. 
Sparkle Topcoat - You have to be careful with fallout when using this shade. It has a creamy like texture as well but the glitter is quite loose. Best way to apply is to pat it on the lid.  It is not overly effective as a whole though. 
Middle to Top
Main Lid Colour - A beautiful taupe metallic shade. Very pigmented and great for all over the lid.
Crease Colour - While it appears shimmery, when applied to the lid it appears as a satin almost matte finish.  Nicely pigmented and easy to blend.
 Highlight - This shade is meant for a browbone highlight. Nice and shimmery but not overly effective. 
Look I created, video linked below!
Overall Thoughts - B+
I thought this was quite good but 2 of the shades could have been much better. The glitter topcoat and the primer weren't very effective. Lot's of fallout on the glitter but hardly any payoff. Perhaps with a stickier base it would work lovely. Without another primer your eye makeup will still last an average amount of time but nothing substantial. If the "primer" shade was more creamy I'm sure it would be much more effective. None-the-less, this palette gives a lovely look and I will be wearing it often.
