Stick -Revlon -Photoready Insta-Fix Makeup SPF 20

on 3/20/2018 2:29:00 PM


Ugh. I read the prior reviews, but i really hoped this would play nice with my face.

OMG - this is super light coverage. No joke. For the $$$ - right there, don't buy it. Go buy Burt's Bees BB cream or something. Better money spent and good light actual coverage for the money.

I don't even like to wear a ton of makeup/foundation - and wanted something light coverage -but this stuff is TOO LIGHT. Like a prior review mentioned, where the heck does this stuff go? I swabbed some on one side of my face, and buffed it in with a brush (sponge no way) and ..... I had to put on more. After I got the hang of how much I wanted to put on - it buffed out nicely with a brush and did not sit on top of my skin like almost ALL foundations do (leave those little white marks in every pore and then get chalky)..this actually looked nice. I was so happy, even though it took more swipes than I thought.

However, I got to work - and about 2 hours later, looked in the bathroom mirror and it looked like nothing was on my face. It's like it absorbed into my skin. This doesn't even give you BB or CC cream coverage, which I consider pretty nice and good light coverage. This stuff is WEAK. I also have oily skin, so that didn't help and I think it made it break down fast (emollient foundation to be in stick form..)

The upside -- Vanilla was a perfect match to my skin tone. PERFECT. And for how well it meshed on my skin? Great.

The bad?? Not worth the price. It was $12 for 0.24 ounces???? ZERO POINT TWO FOUR OUNCES. After seeing how much I needed to swipe on just to get some decent redness covered (I don't even have pimples!) - I'd use this sucker up in one week, maybe 2 weeks max.

Such a let down. If it didn't make me more greasy as I get oily - i'd consider using it with other foundations, but I'm afraid it would just make everything more oily. Ugh. I had such high hopes for this. I'd consider returning it -but I think I'll just keep it for possible concealer or donate it.

Mascara -Revlon -Mega Multiplier mascara

on 3/20/2018 1:22:00 AM


I got this in Plum Brown as I haven't seen a mascara with that shade in years. Anyway, it's a very subdued colour and I needed 4 coats to create a finished look. It doesn't look plum, just lighter brown. It doesn't add much length or volume - just a little. It's quite a nice natural look, if you don't mind spending a long time brushing it on until it shows. It didn't irritate my eyes yet. I don't think I would buy this again but I will use it sometimes.

Makeup Brushes -Revlon -Blush Brush

on 3/19/2018 4:28:00 PM


Revlon recently updated their brushes. The new version blush brush is AMAZING! Has the look and feel of a high end brush for around $12. The brush head is short and compact but soft so color glides on effortlessly. I highly recommend.

Polishes -Revlon -Nail Enamel

on 3/19/2018 4:07:00 PM


I paint my nails at home. I don't get manicures or pedicures. Natural nails. I've never used gel polish. That said, I have spent a fortune on high end nail polishes; OPI, Deborah Lippmann, Smith & Cult, Chanel and lower end polishes such as; Sally Hansen, Essie, Zoya, Wet and Wild...the list is very long!

I decided yesterday to purchase 4 Revlon polishes. Not gel, just regular polish-the same I used years ago.

By far, this is the most consistent polish, beautiful colors, fun colors, business colors, everyday neutral colors. The brush is thin, the polish is thin. I LOVE this so much more than thick brushes and thick polish. 2 coats-perfect!

Truly, Revlon regular nail polish lasts longer and is easier to put on than ANY other brands I've ever used!

The tip I do have to polish lasting longer is Seche Vite top coat. I paint my nails at night. No "sheet nails" ever!

Tried and true, always! Thank you Revlon!

Eye Shadow -Revlon -ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow

on 3/18/2018 5:39:00 PM


Purchased this in the shade Creme Brulee (705). Really like that this provides buildable coverage. Applying 1 coat gives just a subtle sheen - appropriate even for a daytime look. At 2 coats, the impact is almost like a foiled shadow and the effect is fairly close to what I can get using 1 coat of the much more expensive Stila Shimmer and Glow liquid eyeshadow. I like the Stila, but feel it is too intense to pull off during the daytime, so appreciate that this Revlon has the ability to pull off both day and night looks. I don't have oily lids so I almost never bother to use shadow primer and ColorStay lives up to its name - many mornings I can put this on at 7:00 getting ready for work and will find it still is in place when I take off my makeup before bed.

The packaging is pretty nice for a drugstore - small glass jar and within the lid is a surprisingly usable synthetic shadow brush - great for traveling when you don't want to have to pack a separate shadow brush. I'll absolutely try this out in other shades and I would buy this again.

Foundations -Revlon -Revlon Photo Ready Insta-Filter Foundation

on 3/18/2018 4:32:00 PM

I like the coverage and look of this but hate the applicator. The more you try to blend with the sponge the more it rubs off. I use a brush instead. It’s also very expensive at $18.00 for a drugstore foundation. I’m in the shade 330 natural tan. Im an NW 35.

Hair Styling Tools -Revlon -Revlon pro 1 step hair dryer and volumizer

on 3/18/2018 11:05:00 AM

What is this voodoo magic tool? I’m embarrassed to admit I bought a backup. Yes, a backup. My hair has been in rehab for almost two years. Naturally, it’s hamster brown, wavy/curly and FINE. Add fuzz and poufiness, heavy highlighting, a three year affair with get the idea. I was left with bald patches that tore out the hair underneath fron extensions. I went cold turkey with no hot tools for two years, and switched hairdressers to a person with bialage ability and a gentle approach to blonde. I got jealous of the other reviews of this tool, and bought one on Amazon. (It’s also available in Target.) I had been using a John Freida hot brush to give the front pieces a bit of direction, and was happy with that. Then came this. If I blow my hair out, I usually get dead looking ends-bad straight hair. Not this time. This thing is powerful, with just the right tension. I get straight hair with swoopy body and curled ends. I can also get those spots behind the crown on either side that are impossible to straighten yourself. long does it take? Bear in mind, I have fine hair. Three minutes. Three. Five, if I’m being clumsy. No flat iron afterwards. Just fabulous, 70s bouncy hair. I cannot tell you all how many compliments I’ve gotten. The routine is Garnier olive whole blends s/c, Smooth Criminal leave in spray, biosilk leave in, and the dryer. Maybe some shine spray afterwards. This lasts for two days; I would wager that if your hair is thicker, this blowout will last longer. My hair has been my nemesis for years-now I get compliments. $50-59 bucks. And yes, I actually bought a backup.

Primer/ Corrector -Revlon -PhotoReady Perfecting Primer (color 001)

on 3/18/2018 10:59:00 AM



I have moderate acne and this primer made my foundation cake, crease and go into every pore on my entire face after about an hour. I've tried about 5 different foundations and types of brushes/sponges to make this work....but it just won't. Save your money and don't bother.

Foundations -Revlon -Youth fx

on 3/16/2018 3:42:00 AM


This foundation is supposed to fill in and blur lines and wrinkles. I used it over the primer from the same range. I found it to be very difficult to work with, it did not go on smoothly and I immediately noticed caking in my pores and fine lines. Rather than having a blurring effect, the areas I was hoping the foundation would help disguise were actually highlighted by the product. The foundation had no staying power at all, rubbing off in areas after a few hours. Definitely not using again.

Lip Gloss -Revlon -Super Lustrous Lip Gloss (All Shades)


This is my third tube in the color Super Natural. I ran out of the first and lost the second. I really, really like this lip color because on my skin tone, it really does look super natural. Because it's such a light color, it doesn't leave bright, noticeable stains on cups or utensils. I like the texture of the gloss due to the slippery, silk feeling it leaves when other products are goopy and sticky. I've used LipSense and NARS products, but I keep coming back to this one and my wallet thanks me! There's a light sweet scent to it but you have to really sniff the tube to smell it.

It flakes and comes off within minutes of applying. Clumpy and thick, there are better mascaras out there.

Highlighters -Revlon -Photoready Galaxy Dream Holographic Highlighting Palette

on 3/12/2018 5:31:00 PM


Heck yes i would. Very worth the cost. A dupe for the Anastasia glow palettes. Not as colorful, but with a second swipe very comparable.

Lipstick -Revlon -ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick in Buffest Beige

on 3/11/2018 1:03:00 AM


I am very pleasantly surprised by this liquid lipstick. I'm NC30 and have pigmented lips and I have never found a nude lip product that I've been happy with. They always kind of make me look like I'm in the morgue - just colorless and dead and a little grey in the lips. But this color actually works for me! I'm so happy with it. I apply it in two light layers and put a bit of gloss on top. It has a tiny bit of shimmer and lasts for hours. My new favorite!

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Lipstick in Deep Nude [DISCONTINUED]

on 3/9/2018 11:08:00 AM


I've been hanging onto a tube of this for years and years. It's the PERFECT nude for me. I've had thousands of lipsticks in my 71 (yes, that many!) years but this is the most awesome color I've ever used!

I want it back SO MUCH!!

PLEASE, Revlon, please.
