PROS:
* smooth and silky texture
* glides easily
* pigmented and buildable color
* colors didn't fade throughout the day
* sleek packaging that easily fits in your makeup bag
* available in 2 finishes depending on your preference. I love the PERLE finish!
* has a see though window - so you can easily see the eyeshadow color.

CONS:
* some may find it expensive for a single color eyeshadow
* it creased a little (see tip below)

TIPS:
I don't have super oily lids, I can get away without using an eye primer - but whenever I sweat, I noticed that eyeshadows crease a little (on the inner portion of my lid). To prevent this problem, I
recommend using a eye primer prior to application. It makes eyeshadow colors more vibrant (see comparison below) and longer lasting. I'm using Urban decay Primer potion (will post my review soon).

ADDICTION FACTOR:
I'm in love with both colors!

RATING :
4 / 5

^ Revlon Luxurious Eyeshadow in Peacock Lustre (Satin) ^
At first I thought that the color is too dark for daytime use. Boy I was wrong! It's a wearable color for daytime (or nighttime) use, I even wore it to the office. It's a versatile shade that suits fair to morena skintones IMO. For people with brown-dark brown eyecolor (like me), this shade will surely make your eyecolor POP!

^ Revlon Luxurious Eyeshadow in Black Galaxy (Perle) ^
Black Galaxy is a pretty color that it instantly intensifies ANY eyeshadow color. I always carry it with me, so I can easily transform my day makeup to night makeup. =) Just dab a little color on your outer-V with the applicator provided and blend using a brush. It can also be used to set eyeliner on your lower lashline to avoid smudging, just layer it on top of your pencil eyeliner. The color reminds of me of Lancome eyeshadow in Constellation, they look so similar.

Swatches
^ Black Galaxy & Peacock Lustre - without UDPP primer ^

See the difference?! =)

Oooh very pretty. I bought one a while back but didn't like it that much. The texture is nice and pigmentation is better than other drugstore's stuff!
