Review - Darling Girl Eyeshadow in Viva la Revolution

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I received this product as a press sample in a sample size at a discounted price. If you have any questions regarding the subject, see my disclosure statement tab.

I feel like I deserve some serious props here for the fact that I've been wearing so much color lately! For the sake of summer and testing new products, I've only done one neutral look this week! I'm nearly done testing the LORAC GloGetter Palette, but some blog content was much needed in the meantime.

Viva la Revolution is part of DG's Not An 80's Band collection (probably one of my favorite collections as far as the shade names go) and is described as a "Creamsicle with strong blue shift". It reads a bit more orange than a lot of the coral shades that I have in my collection, and thus sets it apart. I wore this over a medium to light coral shade and it definitely amped up the look. When used dry, the blue shift was not all too pronounced, but it was there - I'm really interested in foiling this to play with the shift it contains.

Orange isn't always the most flattering color against my skin, but by some twist of fate, this shade is actually quite flattering. I wore this with a couple neutrals and a soft coral and patted this on the lid. The result was something super summery and it made my blue eyes nearly visible from space! So many compliments on how blue my eyes looked!

As far as wear time, this shade gives me no complaints. It doesn't wear off or fade before I'd expect it to and got me through a work day and more with no issues. In terms of application, it was easier than I would have expected, especially for a loose pigment product. It was very easy to just pat on the lid, didn't take a whole lot of work to reach opacity and caused only minimal fallout.



- Easy application
- Minimal fallout
- Average to above average wear time
- Unique shade


- Shift could be more pronounced when used dry.

Is it fantastic? Yes. Is it out of my comfort zone? Absolutely. Did I have fun? You bet I did. Viva la Revolution is a great shade, especially for those who aren't afraid of color. It was a gutsy shade for me, but I'm happy I took the plunge.
