Has anyone ever tried Revlon's Illuminance Creme Shadow? Do they crease? Do they have good pigmentation? I found a LE pallete of 10 colors at CVS, and I really liked the colors but didn't want to waste the money if they are a really poor quality (like the Physician's Formula Mosaic cream shadows, yuk!)

I hate to tell ya, but these SUCK!
Beautiful colors, but they crease like mad. I haven't been able to find one way to wear these without creasing - I've tried them with a base, set with loose powder, set with the same shade e/s, and yet I still have creasing after 10 minutes. So sad, as the colors are beautiful! I wish they'd work for me, but it's just not meant to be...

Same here. Although I could barely get the colors to show up on me! They were so sheer.

I have one of the ten-shade pallettes, and though they look pretty in the pan, they just don't work that well on. They're very sheer and kind of greasy and hard to control the application of, and yes, they crease and slide all around. I can't imagine who's still buying these things, I haven't seen anyone say anything good about them yet!

Don't feel bad about using drugstore makeup - you can find some real gems for cheap!! I started out with drugstore stuff, but once I found MAC, that was my love. However, I still use lots of things from the drugstore. There's nothing wrong with having a mix of stuff - why pay more if the cheaper stuff works? Every line has their hits and misses. It might be a little harder to find the hits at the drugstore, but that's why reviews and makeup message boards are so helpful!!

I love this stuff! I wear it everyday! I think its called "skinlights" and its the 4 color one or something but it works great for me, never had trouble with creases or greasiness....their great colors to blend and they make you look tan!
