This month I am CRAZY ABOUT CREAMS. Stay tuned for some of my favorite cream makeup products all throughout January.
First of all, I’m shocked I haven’t already tried this Revelon palette, since I’m such a fan of their individual cream shadows in the pots (Chocolate or Espresso, anyone?!). I have to thank the trauma of my last visit to the dentist for this spur-of-the-moment retail therapy purchase!
Illuminance Creme Shadow in Not Just Nudes ($7.99) comes in a slim, trim plastic package with a mirror on one side and four neutral cream shadows on the other. It’s a lineup of coordinating colors with a glossy finish to illuminate yo’ lids.
You know that high fashion/editorial glossy lid look? This does that, but without the thickness, heaviness or major creasing (I do see some minor creasing after a few hours, but not a lot).
One thing though: these are sheer, so Not Just Nudes is NOT what you’d grab when you’re craving intense pigment or when you want to sculpt a cut crease sharp enough to slice day-old French bread. The look is soft, shiny and true to its name — “Illuminating.”
- Lasts about 4 hours on bare lids before I start to see creasing.
- Doesn’t settle into fine lines.
- Stays creamy for about 5 minutes before slightly drying down, so you have time to blend.
- Layers well.
- Not Just Nudes is one of six combos available.
This is the kind of glowing lid look that really werks with a bright lip and lots of mascara. You know when you need something to perk ya right up? The Not Just Nudes palette will do the trick.
I got mine at Ulta, but you can find it wherever Revlon is sold.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Anyone else get sucked into watching the Fyre Festival docs on Hulu and Netflix? Everyone seemed to be talking about them, so I watched the Netflix one yesterday, and now I wanna know this: How did Ja Rule not also go to jail?? He must have known about some of the shady stuff that went down!
