In Review: Revlon CustomEyes Beach Beauty

revlon customeyes beach beauty closed

Nearly one week later {on my 3rd store stop} I found this shadow + liner palette. Got my first glimpse in Redbook Magazine’s May issue + it was an immediate “want”. I’ve been a subscriber {for years now} and it never fails that when I really want something it actually has not been released yet so really the whole thing is kind of torturous.

This is the palette of gorge that I’ve droold over for the past couple of weeks via page 64 of RB Mag. What made matters worse is when you go to the shopping info page there is no info for this product. I was crazy confused by it. It did not even have the product listed! One Facebook message {and one tweet} later both Revlon + Redbook Magazine replied saying it would be available May 1st. So I waited + waited. And to avoid the longer version of this story I’ll just say I was not able to find this until yesterday {May 6th} at a local CVS.

And the colors are super beautiful. I could really see me using this all summer long. The blue is a really pale but bright blue. The gold/brown color is heavily pigmented + has enough shimmer worthy of the “summer glow” title. You won’t look overdone using these shades like some of the ill-fated 80’s blue shadows that people seem to adore painting up to their brow bones.

I swatched these without any primer {something I would normally use when the temp goes above 80°, very often} but it was super early + the house is only quiet for so long . If you want the blue + gray to stay {since both are so sheer} you will definitely want to use some sort of primer on your lids before applying. You won’t have any issues like that with the other shades though.

Are you planning on purchasing any of the Revlon Summer 2012 Escapism Collection? I loved the blush shades too from this collection but sadly have no need for them at the moment.

  1. I too feel in love with with beautiful palette and just had to have it so I began my search at my local CVS and they dIdn’t have it yet ! Was told to stop in next week ,so went to Target and picked up they Peach lip balm from another summer ad which I suggest for any age by the way however;they only had the sizzle lip gloss but was a good snag as it was on sale. Last stop at Walmart where I found the beautiful shadow,the blushs ,the bronzer lip glosses and nail polish’s .Yipee at last I have it all ,oh by the way I suggest getting the rose/pink lip liner it goes with gloss perfectly has small line and sharpener in end . May heart was racing as I drove home in anticipation of transforming myself into the beautiful “Beach Siren” that MUA Gucci Weston created for us . I have to say the colors are awsome and make me feel beautiful.My thanks to Revlon after many years of wearing their products and the makeup artists to help us take the colors from the designers runways and translate it into a look for us everday/night . I just found this sight and will look forward to being a part of it . Have a blessed day always, Judy K. 

    1. That’s so interesting b/c our Walmart + Target still do not have it. I’m just getting into the ColorBurst lip glosses + butters. Revlon has been stepping up to the plate as of late with their bright shades. Thank you for reading Judy K, looking forward to you sharing more of your beauty hunting stories + suggestions=)

  2. I picked this up today at our CVS. I’m excited to try this out. Dd you follow the steps on back of the palette??

    1. At one point I did but now I love to mix it up, especially the blue + copper brown shades. I’ll be doing a post soon on how I wear it.

  3. i am extremely jealous that you were able to find this eyeshadow!  i have been searching high and low for it in every store that carries REVLON and still nothing 🙁    darn that REDBOOK….lol.  i also saw it in their magazine and have been tortured too!

    1. Good luck Valorie! It took me a week to find it…you could call around to see if a certain store might be getting it in but yes unfortunately it’s htf.
