Revlon Colorstay Quad in Free Spirit and Sea Mist | Spring 2013 Pacific Coast Collection

I posted a sneak peek into Revlon’s Spring 2013 collection, read about it HERE. Aside from the lip butters, I also purchased the two quads in this collection.

Let’s take a look shall we?

The quads in this collection brings to mind the Pacific Coast, miles and miles of beautiful coastal waters. So in this collection we have beautiful blues and greens with purple accents.

FREE SPIRIT

I’m not very good with colors but I will try and call this a cool toned palette. It has 2 cool toned blue, one darker and one lighter, a dark grey with a bit of shimmer in it and a beige nude that’s very close to my skin tone. They are mattes with the exception of the dark grey that has a bit of a shimmer in it. Being that it’s matte, the texture is slightly drier but it’s not powdery in my experience. It is blend able, although it takes a bit of work and time but it can be done. When used over a primer, I can get at least 6 hours of wear out of it without creasing but I experienced fading about an hour before that.

You can still find this in drugstores. I got mine at CVS for $7.79.

SEA MIST

I will risk it again by saying that this is a warm toned palette composed of dark eggplant purple, hunter green, baby blue and pink shades. Contrary to Free Spirit, these shadows are satin-y in finish and is not dry or powdery at all. The colors are beautiful when worn together and they are easy to blend. These are my favorite. I’m not fond of colors but these palette provide just that pop. I’ve used these over primer and I got 6 hours of wear before I had to take them off. No creasing or fading during use was noticed.
