Revlon Diamond Lust Eyeshadow Look (and Giveaway)

The holiday season just wouldn't seem right without a sparkly, metallic high-shine eyeshadow in tow.
Silvers, golds, copper tones and bronze... I love it all.

In today's post I am sporting Revlon Diamond Lust Eyeshadow in the shade Night Sky.


Night Sky is a beautiful shimmery dark grey eyeshadow. There are small particles of silver glitter throughout. You can build the eyeshadow up really dark or use it on top of a black base for a more intense look (would be perfect for a New Year's Eve party!).



In the demo I opted for a more subtle approach by layering it on top of a soft matte brown base. The pigmentation was great when applied with fingers and a sponge tip applicator. A flat moistened synthetic brush can also help pack on the pigment as needed. Now since this colour is so dark and rich in glitter, I recommend doing your eyeshadow before any under-eye concealing just so you can easily clean up any fall-out.

The Revlon PhotoReady concealer in Light is a great match for my under-eye area, is easy to blend with fingers and provides good coverage. I've mentioned it in some of my favourites videos on my channel over the past few months :)

As for the lip - like with any sort of bold eyeshadow look I liked to tone it down and sport a paler lip. Revlon Super Lustrous lipgloss in Peach Petal is one of my favourite shades and one that I have owned for quite a while. It's a must for any nude lipgloss lover!

Now for the best part - the GIVEAWAY.

I will be giving away 10 of the Revlon Diamond Lust eyeshadows! As always, please comment below with your e-mail addresses or twitter usernames to enter the contest. I will pick the winners in 2 weeks and contact you for your shipping information.

  1. I really like a palette I got free with Boots 17 products. It is called 'the smokey eye'. It comes with a base, then a green/gold glittery shadow. It looks so good and held out for a long time.

    I'd love to try some Revlon though.

  2. That color looks great! I was actually just checking out the Revlon Diamond Lust eyeshadows yesterday. I think gold and burgundy are a great pair but anytime a reddish color has actually been on my eyes, I end up looking really sickly! Happy Friday! :)

  7. It looks so pretty & easy to apply. I've always just used a black smoky eye which I'm finding a bit tiring for the holidays. Sparkly is something I'd love to try.

  13. I'm more of a neutral colours girl... Reasons I love my UD Naked palettes. For holiday parties I like to go with subtle golds and dark browns... Plus the golds and browns make my blue eyes pop more.

  14. Its funny, during the holidays I tend to wear less makeup because I'm either writing exams or spending time with family (and for some reason I feel inappropriate wearing sparkly dramatic makeup around them.

  19. emilyioc@msn.com I love just going with silver-black looks or smokey brown looks.....if i don't feel like using shadows, I love just a nude lid with some face powder and a cat eye with black liner and a thin line of green or gold on top :)

  20. I've got this great RMK glitter eyeshadow from their Fall collection last year, dusty bright eyes, it was, I think. Anyhow, it has a great silver glitter eyeshadow, which looks amazing on top of a black/ gray smokey eye.
    I also really like Chanel illusion d'ombre in epatant for a super-quick sexy look.
