    The shade range on these shadows is very good. There's something available in everything from cool tones to warm tones, very bright to very neutral. They typically come in a quad, with each shade complementing its neighbour.

    The formula on these cream eyeshadows is very thick. I find that they're easiest to apply with a fingertip, and then later blended with a brush if need be. The problem is, as with many cream shadows with this type of consistency, they never really dry down, instead settling into the creases of the eyelid. I found I was constantly having to pat the product back down throughout the day, as it was just bunching up.

    If you buy one of the paler shades, I think that it would be okay under the brow bone and/or in the inner corner with a light dusting of a shimmer shadow on top. These areas don't naturally have folds like the eyelid does, so the shadow has far less of a chance to crease in any way. Otherwise, I don't feel that these are worth it. They may have been decent for their time, but better formulas have since come out.

    I was excited to use my new revlon illuminance creme eyeshadow. When I first applied it to my eye lids and blended it with my make up brush it was very smooth and looked great. After about 2 hours it began to wipe off and slip into the creases of my eye lids. On the back of the eyeshadow it advertises it's "crease-resistant" and "stays on all day". I was not impressed and I felt like $10 went down the drain. I still use it once and a while because it does blend smoothly but I use powder over it so it's less likely to create creases. It's not something I would recommend but I do enjoy other revlon products.

    It's alright. Good for a glittery eye look now for the holidays.

    I really like Revlon Illuminance Creme Eyeshadows! I have frequently purchased this product, as I love the brown, neutral creme eyeshadows; however, I always find that I use one colour more than another and run out of that colour first! I always end up being forced to purchase another package because I have run out of the two lighter shades!

    I think that these are pretty good cream eyeshadows, but I also think that there are better cream eyeshadows out there. It would also be better to have more matte options. I like that these are really versatile to use, you can use them under eyeshadow, or as eyeshadow alone (though I find that they don't last as long this way) The lighter colors can also be used as a highlight. For people with drier eyelids, I think this could also be used as a cream liner, set with eyeshadow.

    This was the first creme eye shadow I bought. I feel in love with the colours and had to buy it.

    Pros: rich pigment colours, smooth texture, easy to apply, great to use at night or during the day (for me), just enough sparkle/glitter without it being over the top, works well as a highlighter.

    Cons: the shadow does come off a bit without a base/primer.

    I will absolutely buy this quad again, best choice at a relatively cheap price. I might check out the other colour selections too.

    I do not like this product. You have to re apply it throughout the day because it wears away or it collects in the crease of your eyelid ( you know what im talking about) This eyeshadow doesnt work for me at all, i hate applying it its sticky and harder to apply then normal pigment eyeshadow and its supposed to be long lasting? I would deffinatly not buy this product ever again!

    I like the free eyeshadow, only thing is it usually doesn't last to long, and I find I have to re-apply it to my eyes a few times during the day. Really wish it lasted longer.

    This eye shadow is "OK". I recently purchased this at Shoppers Drug Mart on sale (2 for $15), so the price was fabulous. I found the colour was bright, and it applied nicely - but it creased up a lot on me. I also found that the wear of the shadow wasn't very long, and I had to reapply half way through my day. I wouldn't purchase again.
