Concealers -Revlon - Revlon PhotoReady Stick Concealer

Coverage: Average at best. It doesn't really cover acne and red areas as well as I'd like.It covers moderately but not really the high coverage you would expect from a great concealer. You can still see redness peeking out. If you try to keep layering it up, it can get cakey.

Consistency: Kind of on the dry side. It's still very blendable, but not perfectly creamy such as the Nars Creamy concealer (which I've also reviewed). Which is why it can start looking cakey when you layer it too much. I would imagine if used under the eyes, it might settle into lines. This is definitely better used for acne, but even for that, it doesn't do as great of a job.

Packaging is a little unsanitary considering that it comes in stick form. I wipe it off every time I use it, but I still feel hesitant about it.

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

i bought this primer while i was at walgreens because i ran out of the high end primer i was using and didn’t feel like going all the way out to sephora. i have dry skin, but don’t breakout much and my skin in super sensitive. i did some web searches and decided on picking this one out. i bought it and brought it home and just tested it on the back of my hand. it smelled very strongly of chemicals but the texture was good so i used it the next morning. i applied this first and after i finished the rest of my makeup i noticed my eyes felt weird. scratchy and puffy. 3 hours later i could barely open my eyes and a rash appears on my left cheek. my skin texture is now terrible and my eyes still sore. i don’t know what caused my reaction, because i normally never have reactions like this. i highly recommend not purchasing this product.

bleh.
this concealer really wasn't that great, didn't conceal even small pimples and left horrendous (im not sure what to call it) but halos? around pimples making them stand out even more. it also wouldn't last a full day and i ran out of product after about a month which i was very disappointed by as i expected it to last longer. the only reason i didn't give this a even worse rating is because it did not cause me to break out and it was decent for contour.


Liquid -Revlon - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

This foundation has been used by myself for many years although I use the British version I'm sure its the same formula. When first applying this foundation it glides on amazingly with a brush and beauty blender. I use the Smashbox primer oil underneath as my skin is fairly dry. Using and not using a base, powder or setting spray for this foundation in my opinion can make a big difference so I would definitely recommend wearing something under even if it's just a moisturizer as without it I find that it crease and look chalky very quickly. The coverage is amazing, colour matches my pale skin well and theres now a pump included in the packing which is super. The only thing I can fault is that it does crease quite quickly which can be a pain. Other than that for a first foundation or if you want to try something cheaper or new then go ahead!

I had to give this 5 lippies, despite the sparkles...which are visible/noticeable. Sometimes the silver shimmer in this makes me feel beautiful, like some sorta magical/ethereal being, and other times I think this foundation would be perfection without them, so it really is a personal preference. I love the finish and feel, because this seems to meld with my skin, and looks so smooth and non-cakey, and really masks my larger pores. Despite the shimmers, it is otherwise matte in feel, and does not make me greasy like other foundations do. For reference, I have combo/oily skin. I love that this has SPF20, because I like to layer up on my sun protection. The pump bottle is really convenient, and the lightest shade "Ivory 001" matches my pale, neutral skintone perfectly. I think it's important to mention what is worn under/over foundations, when reviewing. Having said that, I wear Garnier's Moisture Rescue SPF15 under this, and Maybelline's Better Skin powder to set. The price is kinda up there ($13.99), but I would still repurchase.

If I could give this product no stars then I would. I'm currently sitting at home with the most painful lips EVER. I wore this at the weekend and have suffered ever since. When applied it was patchy and needed two coats after about 30 mins it started to peel and burn. Maybe I've had an allergic reaction to the product shame they don't provide testers. I absolutely love revlon make up and this is the first time this has happened was wondering if this has happened to any one else. I tried to complain today but was put through to an answer machine hopefully they will call back tomorrow. Please please test this product before you use it I'm paying the price for not doing so.

I have no complaints about the formulation of this product. It goes on smooth and creamy and has good staying power. However, the color is a bit unflattering on my pale, cool-toned, skin. On my complexion, it shows as a vivid red with coral undertones, and it looks like I just painted my lips with a brightly colored sharpie. However, that is not the lipstick's fault; it just wasn't the right shade of red for my skin. I shall stick with blue-reds from now on.

Polishes -Revlon - Holochrome Nail Enamel Collection (All)

on 10/15/2017 3:48:00 AM

I got excited and bought all eight of these from Ulta's website. So far, I haven't seen these polishes in stores or even heard that much about them online. I assume that they are LE but maybe it'll turn out that they're not, who knows? These shades are different from your run-of-the-mill Revlon polishes. This collection has metallic, duochrome, and "holographic" (I'll explain the quotation marks later) finishes. That's a slight departure from what you usually find at the drugstore. But the Holochrome Collection was, for me, a letdown overall.

Formula-wise, all eight polishes were fairly decent. Opaque in two coats, I can say that about all of them. But the gold metallic (Gilded Goddess) and the silver metallic (Molten Magic) were extremely streaky and showed just about every brushstroke. The other metallic in the collection, Blushing, did not have the same problem. It actually ended up being my favorite in the whole collection and the only one that I would buy again. I'll break down what I thought of each one:

Amethyst Smoke: It's a purple/green duochrome and not an especially good one either. It looks a bit murky on the nail and isn't very color-shifty at all. You're better off with Essie's For The Twill Of It.

Fairy Dust: One of the four holo polishes in the collection, it's the minty sea-green one. Not much color intensity with this shade, it looks a little bit washed-out. And the holo is nowhere to be seen! You know, I honestly can't tell if these are supposed to be linear holos or scattered holos because I DON'T SEE ANY HOLO AT ALL. And that's the truth. Just some greyish-silvery sparkle throughout. You're better off with Color Club's Angel Kiss.

Galactic Pink: Everything I just said about Fairy Dust applies to this one too, except it's pink. Just get Color Club's Miss Bliss.

Hologasm: It's silver and it has the same problems as the previous two. Just get Color Club Harp On It. They have some nerve calling this "Hologasm", btw!

Unicornicopia: It's the lavender holo one without any holo in it. Better options are Color Club's Date With Destiny or Cloud Nine.

Gilded Goddess: This is a gold chrome metallic. As I mentioned before, it doesn't have the best formula. And there are a million of these out there anyway. I recommend Essie's Good As Gold over this.

Molten Magic: This is the silver chrome metallic with the streaky, problematic formula. And there are a million of these out there as well. I recommend Essie's No Place Like Chrome if you're looking for a good one.

Blushing: Wow, the only one I actually liked and it looked like it was the most boring one at first glance. This is a warm-toned pink with a metallic, almost-but-not-quite frosty finish. No visible brushstrokes either. It's basically what I had hoped Essie's Pink Diamond would be.

But seven out of the eight were losers for me, so I marked my review "no" I wouldn't buy this again.

Really great product! Stayed on for hours and would definitely buy again!

I purchased this in Coral, which is a light orange toned coral, bright but not neon. I was very impressed by the payoff; my lips are quite pigmented, yet the color was almost opaque in two coats. I also liked that it was comfortable to wear and not drying. It really did feel like a cool gel on my lips, yet didn't smear or bleed excessively. I liked the precision of the slanted product bullet. On the other hand, I didn't like the medicinal fake tropical fruit scent, or the tube that persistently fell down on or rolled off of my vanity. The good outweighs the bad; while Coral didn't work with my skintone, I can see myself trying out another shade or two.

I got two of these because they were both so gorgeous. 755 Vineyard (plum) and 760 Adobe (red). They had a tester for every shade which is so rare now. I love the smell, the taste, and way it goes on, and it even lasts through eating better than some lipsticks. These are awesome, beautiful shades; they brighten the face without looking overdone. For once I was not disappointed when I tried them on at home. I'll be using these all the time now.

Update Oct 16/17. I went back and got this in 725 Sunset. It is the perfect rosy coral shade I was searching for in 2014. I only wish it didn't wear off so fast but I just reapply. There are many corals in the world of makeup but most are too orange, too pale, too bright. This one is ideal and it's my new everyday lipstick. I still love the Vineyard and Adobe of course. But this 725 Sunset made me remember why I craved the perfect coral shade. I found it. This is as good as lipsticks get.

Run away! This mascara SUCKS! It's underwhelming, no volume and just a little length. I didn't even REALIZE it was a TUBING mascara until I looked up the claims online. Where is the volume of a tubing mascara??? It makes your lashes look weird and jagged up close. My lashes looked super flat all day.

I do not recommend and didn't even finish my tube. Yuck!

When was this discontinued? I see only one review, from 2011. This is the best foundation I ever used. My mom and I used it in the 60s. What is a good dupe for this now? I've tried other foundations and nothing came close to this. Not only the creamy texture that melted into the skin but the perfect shades. Occasionally I've liked a foundation but this is the best one ever. It used to come in a tiny bottle so you'd use it up before it separated and went bad. The Revlon foundation bottles are too big now and they come pre-separated on the store shelves!!!

Currently my favorite clear top coat! Double brush is wonderful, drying time is great, and she shine is just right.
