Revlon CustomEyes - 005 Gold Spun

Hello Ladies,

Hope you're all well, sorry for my lack of posting but did you see the weather?! I've accepted the fact that that is our summer over, the joys of living in Ireland! Hope you're all making the most of your summer and lapping up the sun! So, now that the rains back prepare to be bombarded with posts that have been building up for the past couple of weeks!

The first thing that I just have to share with you is this Revlon CustomEyes Eyeshadow & Liner in 005 Gold Spun, which is available here for a mere €2.50 from the ever-amazing Cara Pharmacy! They have a RRP of roughly €9 so this really is a bargain and a half! While on there you should check out all their other great bargains!

The palette consists of 4 eyeshadows and a cake eyeliner, and is available in 4 different shades, I chose Gold Spun as I thought it was the most wearable, I go for a neutral eye most days so this has gotten quite a lot of use! It consists of one satin finish base shadow in a light brown shade and 3 shimmer shadows in gold, white and dark brown along with a matte black cake eyeliner. It comes with a double ended sponge applicator, one end is narrower for applying the eyeliner. If you're familiar with my blog you'll know how I feel about sponge applicators so I prefer to use brushes to apply it and I like to use a damp, thin angled brush to apply the liner.

The pigmentation of this product really surprised me considering how cheaply I picked it up! It's got great colour pay off and doesn't fade or crease. The shadows are extremely soft and blend really easily. The cake eye liner when applied with a damp brush is jet black and stays in place all day without crumbling.

I really can't recommend this highly enough, given the price tag there's no reason why you shouldn't buy it (I'm a bit of an enabler aren't I?) !! 

Have your tried any of the CustomEyes Palettes? What do you think of them?
