Revlon Shadowlink Eyeshadows

Hi guys ! Hope your had a great week and have fun plans for the long weekend ahead. 

Today I'm sharing some of the colours of the Revlon Shadow links . I love the concept of mixing and matching your colours to make your own palette. These colours are all sold individually . There are 30 shades and 4 finishes to chose from.. Something to suit everyone .

For my three mini palette's , I clicked together the colours on how I would wear them. 

First up is the Browns... 

The colours from left to right -
Bone (Matte)
Chocolate (Matte)
Gunmetal (Satin)
Onyx (Pearl)

And the swatches -

Some pinks ...
Petal (Satin)
Lilac (Pearl)
Candy (Pearl)
Periwinkle (Pearl )

And the swatches... Surprisingly .. These 4 together are GORGEOUS !!! I'm not a huge sparkly eyeshadow fan, but I'm convinced these were made for me. 

Some greens... 
Lime (Satin)
Seafoam (Satin)
Peacock (Pearl )
Gold (Metallic )

And the swatches -

I'm just including the 4 finishes for you guys too.

Matte - No sparkle or shine, just a flat colour
Satin - Finishes are true to its name and mimics the look of satin fabric. It produces a very subtle sheen rather than a frost effect.
Pearl - These are the most shimmery finishes and have fine sparkles in them. 
Metallic - Finishes are also true to its name. It has an intense metallic sheen and closely resembles actual metals .. Think foil... gold.. Silver and copper. 

Some expert tips from the Revlon website when choosing your shades .

1. Pick your FAVOURITE shade
2. Add any shade from the same shade family
3. Add a light neutral to highlight
4.Plus a deep neutral shade to define
5. Voila ! Perfect Palette. 

These Revlon Shadow links are available individually and sell for R45 each . I love the pigmentation in these and since you chose the colours you like, your palette can be as big or small as you want .. And you are guaranteed you love all the colours you picked.

  1. i've loved this post lynn! i didn't know about this revlon thing and i think it is such a great concept i now feel like i want to run and buy some! i will surely check in shops soon. i hope italian price is not too high. i found your post very informative, loved to see your palettes and to know the various kind of shades available. i think i'll go for some matte but i'm also very curious for satin and metallic ones. i'm already imagining which colors i'm going to pick! i've loved your choices, and i think the second palette is so me, the second is so you, while the third is so fun and will surely look amazing on you! i know you don't do that, but i'd love to see what looks you come up with.
