I’m a big fan of cream shadows, so when I saw a video review of Revlon Photoready Eye Art, I knew I “needed” it. There were about 5 or 6 different color options on the display, though the Revlon website shows 10 options. I chose Peach Prism, a peachy/light coppery shade that I thought would look good on me with my red hair and would go with my rose gold jewelry and my peach and copper holiday clothes.
Revlon Photoready Eye Art looks exactly like their Nail Art products.
It’s a double-ended tube: one side has a satin cream shadow and the other side has a sparkly topper. Each one has a doe-foot applicator.
Here are the swatches:
I used the cream shadow first as a liner, and I liked the look a lot.
Then I applied the cream shadow to my entire lid. It needed a bit of blending so it didn’t look patchy, and I used a shadow brush for that. It dries pretty quickly so you have to work quickly. It definitely had a metallic look to it.
Next, I added the glitter on top near the lash line. Revlon suggests applying a bit of the sparkle on the tips of your lashes, but I passed on that one.
The night I bought it, I couldn’t wait to try it out. So I applied it over the light shade Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Shadow that I was already wearing over Urban Decay Anti-aging Eye Primer. I would say that the Revlon Photoready Eye Art should be applied over a primer so it will go on evenly. Also, it is a bit drying so those of you with oily eyelids might be in good shape with this one. For me with my dry eyelids, it did feel a bit drying. I will be sure to apply eye cream before I use it again.
As I mentioned, I used it all over my lid as suggested on the Revlon website. I believe you could blend it with other shadows to create a smokey eye, but because it dries quickly you’d have to work fast to blend it out. And I’m not sure how it would blend with a powder shadow.
At any rate, I love this shade, and I know it will be one I go to often during the holiday season.
Each side contains 0.1 fl. oz. It’s made in the US with some non-US components. I bought it at CVS where it was (over)priced at $9.99, but most places sell Revlon Photoready Eye Art for around $8.99. Fortunately, I had a $2 off coupon. 😉 I can’t find an ingredient list, unfortunately.
