Revlon Colorstay 16-Hour Eyeshadow quad in Adventurous: Swatches & Review!

Today's featured product is another one of the new Revlon Colorstay 16-Hour Eyeshadow quads in the color Adventurous. I don't know what it is about olive green eyeshadows, but whenever I see one I feel compelled to try it. I feel like olive green is one of the more wearable "colors" in the eyeshadow world!


Aside from a frosty olive shade, this quad includes a cream highlighter, frosty bronze, and matte brown. These shades remind me a lot of the Maybelline Sunbaked Neutrals 8-color eyeshadow quad (except they are much bigger)! I like that you can choose to just wear the neutral colors, or throw in the green to add a bit of a twist.


These apply really nicely and have good pigmentation. I haven't had any problems with all-day wear with these shadows, so as long as you use a good primer, they should stay vibrant and in place all day!


The back of the quad includes a diagram with a suggestion for how to wear the colors!


These can be found wherever Revlon products are sold and retail for roughly $7. If you are looking for some new shades to try or something compact to keep on hand for travel, I highly recommend these!

  18. Hey amarixe!
    Since a little while now, I watch your videos on Youtube and look at your blog here and I really like what you do! So, I've decided to do a beauty related blog too!
    Could you just go and take a small, tiny, look at it? I have only 2 posts yet (only 1 beauty related) but it would make me very glad.
    Thanks in advance!

    Sophie :)
