Polishes -Revlon -Colorstay - Rain Forest

on 9/24/2017 4:24:00 PM


Rain Forest is an emerald green polish, loaded with gold flakies (looks like glitter, but much easier to remove). It is a beautiful polish and so rich and satisfying for this time of year.

It was easy to apply. I used 2 coats, which at first glance gave me perfect opacity (the following day I noticed a couple of thinner patches, which were only visible in certain light, so no big drama). Removal was easy and this polish surprisingly didn't stain my nails.

I have seen this polish being sold at £1 shops, so I think it's an amazing value for money.

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous in Pink Cognito

on 9/24/2017 1:50:00 AM


This was a nice pink nude which had more of a lipgloss consistency than lipstick, which i didn't mind, however this meant it didn't last very long. It felt comfortable on my lips and i liked the shine/glossiness. Won't repurchase as not cruelty free.

Liquid -Revlon -ColorStay Makeup (24 hour formula)


Since when is this a dupe for Double Wear?!
They have absolutely nothing in common. This foundation does not have enough power to stay on the skin without making it greasy within the first 5 hours. It`s nothing more than a product that only sits on your face, covering certain spots and giving you that "I am wearing a ton of foundation today" kind of look. If you`re looking for an efficient and cheap foundation, this is not it. There are other Drugstore brand which do a much better job.
Revlon is just an overrated brand with easily replaceable products and this foundation is a perfect example.

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Creme - Fire and Ice 720

on 9/22/2017 11:09:00 PM


Color: orange-red (not a brick red or a pure red-but a vintage, classic lipstick that blends orange and red tones). This color has been around for decades and is an iconic Revlon shade.
Finish: cream finish-moisturizing, shiny but not as shiny as a gloss, very soft on the lips.
Advertising history-Fire and Ice was marketed as a lipstick for understated sexiness.
Undertones-warm undertones that veer between orange and red.
Highly recommended for a jolt of color to your face. This screams as loud on some complexions, but totally compliments my medium NC30-NC35 skin tone. My skin tone varies by season and sun exposure-I have a medium beige skin tone.

Lipstick -Revlon -Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

on 9/22/2017 11:02:00 PM


I saw these on sale in Shopper's Drug Mart, so decided to pick up a couple. I got the shades Romance and Devotion.

I didn't except much from these. But I was surprised on how good they are.

Romance is a bright red with a hint of blue. Very beautiful. You will turn heads with this shade. I received many compliments myself. It also lasts forever. It weathered through a greasy chicken teriyaki lunch and an afternoon pizza snack. I came home to it still looking pretty, with minimal fading around the inside corners of my lip.

Devotion is a medium pink shade, going on the cool side. Quite nice for a neutral lip. This one survived a date day with my boyfriend. Although, it faded after dinner, after we had crispy chili beef and honey chicken.

I would definitely say the dark and intense shades have better longevity than the light ones.

This is not completely matte. More of a semi-matte with a hint of a satin finish. Which I honestly like, because it is less drying. My lips don't end up flaking even after a long day of wear. Unlike true mattes, which dry me out like crazy and make my lips would be shedding flakes left and right.

I've been seeing a lot of people struggle with the application and texture.

My advice is, apply in THIN, EVEN LAYERS. Build up slowly using thin layers, waiting around 40 seconds in between coats.

Never ever apply thick layers. A thick layer will cause a goopy mess that will never dry. The end result will be an ugly texture that balls up and stick to itself, because the product underneath didn't have a chance to set or dry.

So wipe the excess on the back of your hand, or on the side of the tube. And apply in thin layers. It needs a little patience to wait in between layers. But, this isn't lipgloss and should not be applied like a lipgloss. Its a liquid lipstick. You can't really rush it, if you want a good end result.

Foundations -Revlon -Age Defying Firming + Lifting Makeup SPF 15

on 9/21/2017 7:53:00 PM


If you are looking for affordable coverage, this might work for you. For me the finish was not dewy enough and does not feel light enough. Also the colour match was an issue as I am a yellow Asian.

Hair Color -Revlon -Frost

on 9/21/2017 6:53:00 PM


I've tried this color about a year an half ago. As many others I was sick of paying 500$+ for highlights at a high end salon without getting exactly what I wanted. I thought I could do it myself. So wrong!
I'm used to foil highlights, but I always wanted to have a bit less of them so I've tried to do balayage highlights by myself using Frost and Glow.
1 - the cap will never give a natural or high end looking highlights so I tossed it away directly;
2 - balayage (free painted) highlights will always be thicker than foil ones (I haven't thought of that). Coming from the roots with the darker base they look very old school;
3 - at the hairdresser I never see my new color before it's toned, Revlon Frost and Glow came to me as a shock. It wasn't bad, just slightly brassy, way better than any of my hair coloring experiments from 15 years ago, but still...
4 - I used honey shade, it lighten my natural medium brown hair only up to two shades, but it didn't damage it;
5 - it is serious pain in the a** to do a free painted highlights by yourself, the result will never look professional. It will look cute on young girls, but not on people who are older than 25.

I think it's an awesome stuff for a young girl who has tight budget but wants to have some cute highlighted strands in her hair. Fun to do with a girlfriend. I wish there was something like this the time when I was 15-20.
But now for me it's a pass. I will never again attempt to highlight my hair at home.

Foundations -Revlon -Colorstay Makeup Normal/Dry Skin SPF 20


I liked it... I got this during the summer time so I had a nice tan. I can't remember which shade I got tho... It was easy to apply, the coverage was good, the formula is not heavy at all. A negative thing was that it has a very fine shimmer in it... so I wouldn't use it in winter because I get really pale... the shimmer is nice for the summer and it is barely noticeable. It wears really niche through the day. I liked it, again, I think it a "summer time foundation."

Lipstick -Revlon -Ultra HE Matte Metallic Lipcolor

on 9/21/2017 1:25:00 PM

I have the color shown in the picture, sort of dusty mauve. I think its a flattering color on most complexions but this is definitely NOT very matte. It doesn't dry down to matte finish, this is more of semi matte which does last good amount of time and wears off evenly although I do find it not as pigmented as I like. It feels moist on your lips and doesn't dry it out. As another reviewer said, its not really "metallic", more of a frost finish. Personally, I still like it and wouldn't mind getting another color.
if anyone wants matte metallic, I suggest Milani's liquid lipsticks. You get exactly what name states. However, those ARE drying and hard to take off so keep that I mind.

Eyeliner -Revlon -PhotoReady Kajal Intense Eye Liner + Brightener

on 9/20/2017 10:55:00 PM


I liked how the pencil was soft and went on easily when I used it to tight line my upper lid. I also used it in the outer corners and smudged it to give a natural look.
It was embarrassing to see when I looked in a mirror a few hours later, it had smudged & ran 1/2" under my eyes. I looked like a joke. Never using it again

Mascara -Revlon -Mega Multiplier mascara

on 9/20/2017 10:52:00 PM


I can only wear tubing mascara as all other types smudge under my eyes, waterproof included. So I was happy to find another drugstore tubing option other than L'Oréal - which I don't love but in a pinch it works. Anyhoo - I like this one, the brush is good, no panda eyes, stays on all day, inexpensive. I am on my 2nd tube. Happy :)

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

on 9/20/2017 5:18:00 AM


I have never used any other primer so I can't compare this to the other primer.
I have oily skin and I have been searching for a way to make my makeup last longer without blotting. Then, I heard this thing about primer and I decided to use Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer because all of my other makeups are Revlon products.
At first, this primer doesn't give any difference after applying it on my skin. I saw the difference after applying foundation. I can apply foundation better on my skin. It also makes my pores disappear. I usually have to blot my face after 2 hours but after I use this primer, I can still manage about 4-6 hours, depends on the environment where I work.

Stick -Revlon -Photoready Insta-Fix Makeup SPF 20


After all the great reviews on this product I was really rooting for this one. I've been on a search for my perfect foundation ever since I hit 30 and my skin's texture has changed. Before this I was using L'Oréal pro glow and it was a disaster, even if the shade was a perfect match. This product is just right formula wise, nice and thick texture, sheer to medium coverage and the wear is great (8+ hours), but sadly the tone is all wrong. Too warm/yellow for my cool/pink complexion. I tried finding one that was in the cool color family only to discover all of the light shades in this line are warm/yellow. So bummed and my search continues...

Liquid -Revlon -Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily


So gutted i cant get a refund on this bought in sun beige it goes tacky and patchy what a mess tried with and without primer different moisturisers nothing works

Crème -Revlon -ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

on 9/18/2017 3:16:00 AM


My family has been used Revlon for more than 10 years.
My mother used Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Dry Skin. When she was running out foundation, the seller on the counter said that the foundation she usually used was no longer available and recommend this instead.
I don't know whether it was marketing trick or the seller was dumb not knowing there's no way Revlon stops producing one of their best foundation. Anyway, my mother bought it and quickly decided that this foundation is definitely not for her.
Contrary to mine, my mother's skin is dry and because of its thick consistency, this Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup was quite thick in coverage. Definitely to thick and cakey for mature skin.
And then, because not long after that I was running out of foundation too (I used Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation for Oily Skin), I offered to use this instead of her. I bought her the usual foundation. Turned out that Revlon was changing the packaging only (lol)

My skin is oily to very oily skin. I usually begins my makeup routine by using Revlon Moondrops Moisturizer for Oily Skin, then applied Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer 001. After that I applied foundation and Revlon Touch & Glow Loose Powder (all Revlon, haha).
I usually need to blot my face around after 4 hours, which I considered normal after watching Lisa Eldridge video about foundation for oily skin. Compared to Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation, this whipped creme makeup gives more coverage and my big pores disappear. I applied it using fingers.
My country here is very hot and humid. I have to be careful applying this around my nose because sometimes it melts!
It doesn't cause me any breakout.
Closing word is, if you have dry skin, you really need moisturizer for this. For oily skin, it's decent
