Revlon Melon ShadowLinks Eyeshadow Review + Swatches

 Revlon's new ShadowLinks are a collection of 30 individual eyeshadows that can be linked together to create customized palettes. Revlon doesn't bother to make any specific claims about their newest eyeshadows (a wise decision). This review is for the shade Melon, the only shade that really appealed to me. Each ShadowLinks contains 1.4 grams (.05 oz) and sells for three or four bucks. Revlon products are not cruelty free. This eyeshadow was made in the USA.

 Revlon's ShadowLinks comes in tiny, black, rectangular compacts. The flip tops are clear, letting you get a good peek at the color. The Revlon logo graces the front of the compact. There are grooves on each side of the compact to help ShadowLinks click together. The shade name can be found on the back of the compact. I really should've gotten two of these single shadows so I could comment on how well they link up. Sorry. Packaging is recyclable.
 Revlon's ShadowLinks Eyeshadow in Melon is almost painfully average for a drugstore eyeshadow. Melon is soft and just a little powdery. This shadow doesn't cause any fallout, but it does kick up just a little extract powder in the pan. Melon isn't particularly pigmented, nor does it build up well. This eyeshadow blends wellenough. Wear is also pretty average - I get six to seven hours of wear over a primer before Melon fades and starts to crease.
 Melon is one of those "NARS Orgasm" kind of colors. A light, peachy pink with plentiful golden microshimmer. Revlon calls Melon a satin finish, which is pretty accurate. This eyeshadow has a gentle sheen to it - barely noticeable. I love the finish, but not so much the color.

Eh, Revlon's ShadowLinks Eyeshadow in Melon is exactly what I expected it to be - decent, but nothing special at all. Packaging is nice and compact. This eyeshadow has a decent, workable texture. Pigmentation is merely adequate. Melon is a soft satin finish peachy pink - it'd be a pretty blush. The price is fair for ShadowLinks eyeshadows. I wouldn't purchase any of the other shades from this line, nor do I recommend them. None of Revlon's shades are particularly unique, I'm sure you can find similar shades with a better formula.
