Product Review: Revlon CustomEyes Shadow and Liner (Free Mascara)

On rare occasions, I get to find unique deals or promotions at Target. Case in point- a bundled Revlon CustomEyes Shadow and Liner with Mascara for only $9.45. For reference, the eyeshadows and mascara are normally sold for $7.49 each. Tell me this ain’t a good deal!

The free mascara is full size, yay!

I picked up Rich Temptations (030), a five-color palette that features burgundy, maroon, soft pink, beige, and sage with satin-shimmer texture. The partner mascara is black.

Don’t they scream fall colors?

Yet another eye guide- common to most eye makeups for color suggestions.
Dial-type mascara

I used this palette both dry and wet on different occasions and found that wet application has better color pay-off and staying power. The colors are subtle with satin-shimmer finish. They are buildable for day or night wear. Overall, I liked how the shades compliment my brown eyes.

Hues are true to the pan. 

I was excited to try the mascara. Again, for the promise of dramatic lashes. This mascara has a wand-dial. Dial or turn to point 1 for Length and Drama; Dial 2 for Length and Definition. Will there be a difference? Let the experiment begin…

Can you tell which is Dial 1 or 2?
Left: Dial 2 (length and definition)
Right: Dial 1 (length and drama)
What about with eyes closed? Any difference?

Yet another marketing claim. In my opinion, this dial-type hype is nothing short of fancy. While I liked the fact that this mascara gave my boring lashes some volume, there is no difference between Dial 1 or 2.

I love thee: I used all 5 shades. I used a copper liner (Wet n Wild)

Think outside the palette and play around with colors. If you want
your eye makeup to be the focus, go easy and/or simple with lips…

  • Value for money (Because this is a combo deal, you save $5 when you buy this packaged promo at Target)
  • Eye shadows are available in six coordinating shades


  • No magic in mascara (as expected though). It is what it is- It is black to give lashes volume; tendency to clump

Over-all rating: 4/5  The eyeshadow is a must-try. Consider the mascara as a bargain find.
