Review | Revlon Rio Rush 16 Hour ColorStay Eyeshadow Quad & Super Lustrous Lipstick

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

Earlier this week I showed you a glitter gradient nail art that I created with two nail lacquers from the new Revlon Rio Rush collection, and today it’s time to put the new eyeshadow quad and the three new lipsticks from the collection in the spotlight. For the new Rio Rush collection Revlon was inspired by Brazil, so slip into that bikini, cover yourself in feathers and get ready for some daring new colors!

Revlon Rio Rush 16 Hour ColorStay Eyeshadow Quad in Exotic

Review (Revlon La Rio Rush 16 Hour ColorStay Eyeshadow Quad & Super Lustrous Lipstick) (2)

The Revlon Rio Rush 16 Hour ColorStay Eyeshadow Quad in Exotic consists of a pale shimmery gold, a matte bright yellow, a matte purple and a matte deep black. This isn’t my first Revlon ColorStay Eyeshadow Quad and just like the other ColorStay quads in my stash Exotic completely lives up to its name. The intensity of all four colors in the palette is great and the wear is just fantastic. All colors from the Revlon Rio Rush 16 Hour ColorStay Eyeshadow Quad stay put throughout the whole day with no signs of creasing or fading whatsoever.

I suspect that the colors in the Exotic quad will be a bit too wild for some people, but I personally love them. I’m also very happy that three of the four colors are matte. I don’t have as many mattes in my eyeshadow collection as I would want, but with the Exotic quad added to the mix my matte division now has three awesome new members, hurray! *wiggles her feathers and starts dancing the samba*

Revlon Rio Rush Super Lustrous Lipstick in Ipanema Beach, Carnival Spirit & Sultry Samba

from top to bottom: Ipanema Beach, Carnival Spirit & Sultry Samba

With the launch of the Rio Rush collection Revlon has added three new colors to the existing Super Lustrous Lipstick range. Ipanema Beach is a sheer pale pink that adds a tiny bit of color and lots of shimmer to the lips, Carnival Spirit is a delicious juicy coral red, and Sultry Samba is a bold fuchsia with a satin finish.

Sultry Samba

All three colors are soft, creamy and have a lovely even finish. The formula is also moisturizing enough to keep my lips hydrated, but a little touch up every two hours or so is recommended to keep the color and the hydration levels up. My favorite color? Texture and finish-wise Carnival Spirit is just a tad juicier than the other two, and that together with the fact that it’s such a cute coral red makes it my favorite color of the three.

Did you get anything from the Revlon Rio Rush collection? Which of these new products do you most like the look of?


  1. Carnival Spirit is perfect on you! Love it! I got MAC’s See sheer recently which looks a lot like this .. a bit pinker! I wouldn’t really know what to do with the eye shadow quad.. but look at your eyes! BEAUTIFUL as always! :-)

  37. Ack, I totally want carnival spirit! I don’t think I’ll get the chance now though – the collection’s been out here for a bit, and I doubt there’s much left at the usual places :-( The coral and the pink look especially fab on you though, and I love what you did with the eyeshadows!

    Do you know/think that any of these will go into the permanent collection? I hope the lipsticks do!
