Swatches: Revlon Diamond Lust - 115 Neptune Star

Revlon has 5 new diamond lust eye shadows. They are all shimmery with fine glitters. I got this at the drugstore when they had 40% off. Regular retail price is $4.99. I only got the deep turquoise color called Neptune Star because I wasn't sure if I will use all the shades. 
It comes with a sponge applicator. I think using fingers would be easier than using the sponge applicator to apply. It's probably not a good idea to use a brush to apply.

I swatched it first with my finger. The shadow itself is quite dry.  If you just apply this on without any primer or cream eye shadow, there will be fall out. Here's a swatch without any primer or cream eye shadow. It shows some fine glitters but not very obvious.
 
And here's a swatch at the bottom which I applied first with Mac Paint Pot called Vintage Selection. For glitter eye shadows, it's always a good idea to apply primer or cream shadows first. The cream eye shadow/primer will hold the eye shadow better, esp. to prevent darker shades from fall out and it minimizes the chance of messing up your base makeup.
As you can see, the camera picked up more glitters at the bottom, which I have the paint pot on as a base. And the paint pot itself does have some shimmers, so it helps to build up more color for the eye shadow. And here's a swatch from another angle. 
The shimmers just reminds me of Jill Stuart eye jelly. Of coz it's not close to the glitters Jill Stuart uses but this is a cheap affordable alternative. I think it's a great buy if you have cream eye shadows/primer to pair with this.
