Review & Swatches : Revlon Colorstay Créme Gel Eyeliner in 003 Plum/Prune

Hi girls!
How's your day? 
Hope it's spectacular! :D

Today I'll be reviewing 
Revlon Colorstay Créme Gel Eyeliner in 003 Plum/Prune

From Revlon, Colorstay line itself already have a place in my heart. They really put up a good drugstore makeup products that people have been raving and compare to the higher brand cosmetics. As we all know.. the infamous Revlon Colorstay Foundation is one of them!

To know that they also carry a gel liner, caught my eye. I believe in my country, it's a brand new product and I'm thrilled to try it. I've been wanting a good purple gel liner, maybe this is the one? hmm.. let's see! :D

For 2.3gr of product I paid like IDR 75000 rupiahs (around $7.50 US Dollar) in any Revlon counter or Watsons like where I bought this.

From the packaging, it has a sleek and modern design. Also has a good weight and come from a sturdy material to cover all the product, I would say it still a hard-plastic-glass look-a-like, though.

It came with a brush that attached into the package. You just need to easily pull and push them in wherever you need it. And the product was securely kept in the lid plastic glass.

I think I'm gonna love the color too! :D

Personally, I'd love to use my personal brush of choice, because I need a longer handle brush to make a good line anywhere near my eyes. :D

. the lighting were all in Indoor artificial light .

From the above swatch, I try to make a good opaque line. The color is buildable and I need 2 coats to make that opaque straight line like what I desire.
From the lower swatch, I just swipe it once and smudge it to see it's easily to work with or not. As the texture is creamy enough, I was quite happy with the result.

For this particular plum color, as you can see it has a silver not shimmer but GLITTERS in it! Not sure why, but to me I even more like it that way. It just brighten up my eyes when light captured the glow. But for some of you, might find this as a downside. *warning*

- Unto the rub test -
After a good 5 minutes and let it set, I try to heavily rub them to see it's staying power. The liner stays put! well.. a little fade doesn't bother me that much. But other thing, as you can see.. the silver glitters were become all over the place. 
oh noo :( 

And as for water resistance, I got into shower with this eyeliner kept on my lid. I would say it stays put for good, but there is a little fading and the glitters just falling on my cheek (not much though!)

.this is on my lid. 
.no primer. no base.

For what I come.. Is it worth the money?
I would say yes! It's an affordable price with a good staying power and pigmentation. 
I'm still glad I bought this.
This color gel liner is an alternative if you want a softer subtle eye look but still give a definition to *specially* brown eyes :)


That's it my review.
