Blush -Revlon -Powder Blush - Classy Coral

For anyone else who has 500 blushes in a drawer somewhere that either made you look clown-like, flu-like, chemically-impaired, or the victim of poor bathroom lighting, this might be your new BFF. Or at least a benevolent neighbor you that wave to everyday.

If you are like me and have...um, issues (rosacea, bumpy skin, undertone confusion), blush can be such a challenge that you swear it off! I feels ya. This puppy is what broke me out of a three year color hunger strike. Not sure why, but I'm pretty sure it involved a coupon and some Extrabucks at f-ing CVS (Or as I like to call them, The Seat of Most Evil)

Why it might work for you: It's very subtle (pigment junkies may be disappointed), blends smoothly, and produces very natural-looking flush-like effect. Which is great for disguising iffy texture and mature skin. Also great for beginners because it's easy to control and you don't have to be very precise in your placement. Also, the shade would probably work on ANY skin undertone--warm, cool, neutral, olive or a dissonant mixture, like mine. And, it is weirdly rosacea-friendly--doesn't make the redness appear worse, which most shades definitely do.

Top/Base Coats -Revlon -Matte Top Coat

on 11/9/2017 6:48:00 PM

This matte top coat is from Revlon’s Transforming Effects line. I had really good success with this matte top coat. It applied evenly with no streaking. It didn’t leave behind any white spots. With one coat it was perfectly matte.

I applied this over my SH Insta Dri top coat as i wanted the benefit of a QDTC. That combo make the top coat and polish dry quickly. I got good wear without any chipping. Removal was easy.

The formula is on the liquid side but I got no running or pooling upon application. It may have seemed a little liquid to me because I am used to using a QDTC which tends to be a little thicker than standard top coats.

Packaging is the standard Revlon polish bottle. The brush is a pretty standard polish brush.

I paid $3.97 plus tax for this bottle. I would repurchase though I doubt I will ever have to as I am generally not a fan of the matte polish look.

Eyeliner -Revlon -ColorStay Liquid Liner

foto

I mostly love this product: (1) the precise application with the stiff brush at the end and (2) the color going on thick (I don't have to reapply layers to get the black I want). (3) I can use it for a thin line or a thick line. Also, (4) this product does not "sting" my eyelids like some eyeliners have done in the past.

My reasons for not fully loving this product are: (1) After some uses, the brush applicator hairs become loose - in other words, I have to use tweezers to pull out some stray hairs peeking out at the top of the brush, and that's slightly annoying but would be more annoying if I didn't notice them and proceeded to apply the liner with these stray hairs dragging very tiny lines of black around my main black line that I'm trying to apply.

Eye Shadow -Revlon -ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow

This is a no. I have hooded eyelids. I used an eyeshadow primer to give it special insurance against creasing. I got home and this was a creasy ugly mess in my eye area. My favorite cream eyeshadow from makeup forever was discontinued. It never ever creased on me. It was amazing. I'm looking for a replacement and this isn't it. I'm the garbage it will go. It's too bad because it actually came in really high packaging. I had high hopes. Oh well.

I loved it wo much! It ranges from black to ultra sparkling green depending on how much product you apply.
I only hope to find it again. I think it fits every skin color.


Lipstick -Revlon -Colorburst Matte Lip Balm - Sultry

on 11/5/2017 3:37:00 PM

I purchased the shade “Sultry” from Amazon, without having tested it in person. I tend to avoid mauve shades, and probably should’ve skipped this one. It’s not horrible with my complexion (NC15), it’s just that I prefer either more red or more brown shades. I think the chemistry of my skin causes Sultry to veer into the pinker/mauve tones. While comfortable to wear, I suspect I won’t reach for this shade. I will most likely be wearing the other Matte Balm I purchased, Standout, which is definitely a brick-red on me and better suited to my taste and complexion.

Lipstick -Revlon -ColorBurst Matte Balm - Standout

on 11/5/2017 3:26:00 PM

foto

This matte balm is more comfortable than I was expecting. “Standout” is a lovely warm brick-red shade, which I find to be quite wearable. For me, I would describe this as an everyday red, because I tend to select brighter and more intense reds for evening wear.

As others have mentioned, this balm is not transfer-resistant.

There is a peppermint scent and subtle taste, which does not bother me much. I would rather not taste peppermint, however, when I’m sipping Cabernet Sauvignon!


Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Creme - Cherries In The Snow 440

on 11/4/2017 7:29:00 PM

Cherries In the Snow is just the *perfect* balance of pink and red for my pale, warm-to-neutral skintone. It looks more red in artificial light, more pink in sunlight, and gorgeous across the board. I was paranoid that it would pull fuchsia on me, but nope; just a divine cerise. It's a jeweltone shade; not bright, but vivid, saturated, and luscious. It has a creme formula that's a little dry, but wearing Cherries In the Snow over a light coating of balm keeps it from parching my lips. It leaves a long lasting stain, even after some greasy finger food, which is always a plus in my book. I *need* the matching nail polish.

Unicornicopia is a lilac silver shimmery nail polish with a small holographic effect.It shines silver and many colors! Verry nice effect! It stays on long with a top coat!(maybe not put a base or a top coat cause it could be less holographic)love it!

Hair Color -Revlon -Colorsilk in Dark Blonde

on 11/2/2017 4:46:00 PM

I was a regular hair-bleacher - and I loved it - until I became increasingly allergic to bleach. Once I figured out that it wasn't worth potentially dropping dead to have really cool hair, I started to figure out ways to transition between the bleached parts and my natural color, which is a dark ash blonde/30% gray combo. I typically use this in the months between highlighting appointments to soften the grays in my natural color, break the base, and blend the brighter lengths, and it works well for this. It does lighten up quickly, so around 4-6 weeks after I color it will be a lot lighter and more golden than when it is freshly done. However, I feel like this happens with all box dark blonde dyes.

Anyway, I've found the best way to make the color seamless is to put conditioner on my ends pre-color while my hair is dry, and begin by putting color on the roots down to a little above ear level or lower. I do this all over my head, leaving the ends untouched, and when time is up I rinse the whole thing out. I've found that if I put this all over my head or even put it in the ends of my hair during the last five minutes (as the box suggests) my ends look a lot ashier than my roots. This is probably because my ends are lighter and more porous, but they still get toned as the color is being washed out from my roots. This results in a really lovely, soft neutral dark blonde that gets very slightly lighter toward the ends of my hair. If you're a dishwater blonde who is growing out your highlights/bleach, I really recommend this to help with the growing-out process. And it's cheap. Until I can find a cruelty-free hair dye that works well, I will stick with this one.

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

on 11/1/2017 10:57:00 PM

foto

I bought the pore-reducing primer, which is similar but not quite the same as the perfecting. When I used the tester of the perfecting on my hand, my skin started flaking. That didn't happen with the sample of pore-reducing, so I went with that one.

This primer would be actually really nice if not for a couple things. Overall, as someone with drier skin, I would say this isn't the best option. If I haven't had a heavy cream on for a bit before using it my skin gets really flaky. When you put it on, I love what it does. It mattifies your pores and does a good job of filling them for a drugstore primer. However, it does not mix with my concealer AT ALL. Sometimes if I'm lucky it barely settles, but most of the time it gets separated and overall gross on my skin. Because that could be an issue with the concealer, though, I think that's more minor. It's a lot pricier than I would like it to be, but it's not ridiculous. The packaging is fine by me.

You could give it a try but there are probably better options out there.

Lipstick -Revlon -Ultra HD Gel Lip Color

on 11/1/2017 7:05:00 AM

foto

So recently (and delayed might I add), I was looking for a purple lipstick. I went shopping and couldn't get any cheaper drugstore brand so I ended up at a Revlon counter. Initially I was looking for a matte lipstick but was told that the particular range was limited edition. So I tried on the new Ultra HD Gel Lip Color in HD Twilight. It looks very purple in the packaging but when I applied it, it was not as saturated with color as I wanted and was more of a thicker gloss than a lipstick. The packaging was no fuss and the lipstick glided well onto my lips. It is a very hydrating formula with a fruity scent and it also matches well with the Revlon Vixen lip-liner. Unfortunately the color did not last very long on my lips. Without eating or drinking the maximum time was about 3 hours. It is a good product if you're looking for something in-between a lip-gloss and lipstick but on the price side, I didn't particularly find it worth the money especially for the quantity that you get (1.7g).
