Good base/highlighting eyeshadow
RAVE: I bought this eyeshadow because I wanted a cream texture that is good for highlighting and this was perfect! I would not use this eyeshadow alone but I think it makes a good base for the eye and also you can use it to highlight your brow bone. I have the precious metal and i really like the silver colour.
SLATE: There is not much pigment on the colour so I would say this eyeshadow needs to be used with something else and like I stated, this is a good base eyeshadow or to add an extra "light" to your eyeshadow.

Love this little palette
I love this palette so much. My favorite is the one with the neutral colors. Super pigmented but looks very natural. I like to use to palette when I want a more natural or no makeup makeup look. I even some of these colors as a primer and it work great as well. It's a bit on the pricey side for not lasting very long, but rite aid has 40% off revlon cosmetics every so often so I would take advantage to be these then!
Awesome e/s base & nice highlighter too!
I have a couple of these and they make an awesome base and if you get one with nude colors the slight shimmer makes a nice brow highlight! They are super smooth and glide on easy...eyeshadows on top blends well...the pigmentation is not amazing but its decent and good enough for a colored base... I would totally buy another one
I got this palette the other day in "Not Just Nudes" and I love, love, love the lightest shade in it. It makes the perfect highlight colour for my inner eye and it works nicely as a base colour for my smoky eye. I have yet to try out the other colours but so far the light colour is worth every cent.
I personally LOVE Revlon creme eye shadows. I the Illuminance Creme Shadow and have a earlier rendition of the creme shadow palette as well. They both have a golden bronzy kind of "theme" to them except the earlier version's colors are deeper. The thing I loved about the Illuminance is there was more of a color range. Of course, there is the light bronze/gold and the true golden yellow. But they also included black and a plum-rose bronze color. These all have shimmer to them. I love these because they are great to use as bases for your shadows; it really brings out the true color. You can either really pack it on to have a very effective base or not, no worries the product blends perfectly. Although, when you blend it the color is quite sheer, it doesn't have the most pigmentation. I could have given this 5 stars, but just a fair warning to anyone with oily to combination skin, like me, who is looking to use this as a base: make sure to use a primer over your lid. The shadows are creme and with oily skin the product may not have the strongest lasting power. Other than that the product is amazing, i love it!
