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

In simple words I hated this primer, it just didn't fit my face and after some time it was itchy and I always felt the need to take it off. Unfortunately I ended up throwing it .

Doesn't look cakey

CONS
It has nice coverage but is not full coverage. If you want full coverage try Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover.

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Creme - Pink Velvet 423

on 6/9/2018 11:40:00 PM

foto

This shade has been re-released as part of the Street Chic collection, inspired by global fashion trends. In the tube, it looked super promising as a pink/rose shade for my fair, warm-to-neutral skintone: it appears to be a deep pink with a hint of coral, and coral-pinks are usually great on me. However, on my lips, it's quite a bit brighter than it looks on the bullet; just a little too bright to be flattering. The Revlon Web site associates Pink Velvet with Tokyo, and I do think it'd be really pretty against skin more golden/yellow toned than mine.

Shoutout to the formula, though: I vaped right after applying, and no lipstick smudged onto my e-cigarette. Considering that it's a comfortable creme formula with a creme finish, distinctly non-matte in every way, I was honestly shocked!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks have no detectable scent or taste, and go for ~US$5 at my Walmart - high quality lipsticks in the classic black and gold tube with a window on top, yet cheap enough to experiment with. (Which is good, as I haven't had any luck finding a keeper shade, yet...)

Lipstick -Revlon -Revlon Super Lustrous in Chocolicious

on 6/9/2018 5:09:00 PM

Terrible quality, while the colour looks good, it applies terribly and it's very patchy. Literally smacking my lips together erases the colour, it's terrible and it does not last for more than 5 minutes on the lips! Really disappointed. It also needs a lot of application to build up colour and you end up applying too much lipstick to build up any colour, which bleeds very fast afterwards!

Lips -Revlon -Colorburst Matte Balm (All Shades)

on 6/9/2018 1:50:00 PM

foto

Have this in #255 enchanting, a muted beige-pink. I like wearing this to work or as a soft daytime lip colour since it adds colour without being distracting. It has a matte finish as the name suggests, but not like a liquid lipstick or anything. It looks like a light translucent coat of colour, kind of reminds me of a chiffon appearance as the texture is like that semi-transparent, soft look.
There is an ever so slight sheen in certain lights, but it's like the natural sheen you get with bare lips anyway.
This feels very comfortable on, it isn't quite as moisturising as your average lip balm but it certainly didn't dry my lips out either. It has a strange minty smell and is a little but tingly when first applied, but wasn't irritating and disappeared after a short while.

Lasting power isn't fabulous, as you might expect from a lipbalm-like product, so I do need to reapply and almost always after eating or drinking anything. It's a jumbo twist pencil that fits well into a purse or bag easily enough to take with me, though.
In summary, this is great as a natural-appearing and flattering lip colour while being comfortable to wear and for the price I really can't complain.

Liquid -Revlon -Colorstay 24hrs Makeup SPF 15 Combination/Oily Skin (US pump bottle)

foto

I tried this after being a faithful user of Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, as I found it began to look a bit cakey and seemed to accentuate my pores.
I bought this one instead, and it's quickly become my favourite foundation! When used with a primer it can last for hours and is the perfect 'my skin but better' foundation with medium coverage without looking too cakey. One layer seems to cover my open pores and mild rosacea very well, meaning you don't need to over-do it with concealer after using this foundation. There's no strong smell which is good as I have fairly sensitive skin in some parts of my face. The consistency is neither too thick or too thin.
I would never pay upwards of £30 for a high-end foundation when I can get this for £12.99 and it pretty much does the same job.
My shade is 150 and it matched perfectly without oxidising noticeably.
I would definitely recommend this!!!

Mascara -Revlon -Dramatic Definition

foto

Well FINALLY a mascara that (is affordable and) does what it says on the packet! "Bold, Clump-Free Lashes".Colour impact/boldness - Yes. I got Black #202 and it is a really deep glossy black. Clump-free - Yes. The brush wiper thingy leaves on just the right amount so the brush is never overloaded. Plus the small spiky plastic brush makes it easy to apply and lashes stay defined and separated. I usually hate plastic brushes as they prick my eyes when I try to get close to the lashline, but this doesn't! Its small and I can get all the tiny lashes and right up to the lashline without poking out my eye. Doesn't smudge. Holds a curl.

Cons are: Doesn't give much volume, so may have to be layered over a primer or another mascara if you want it all. Not great for sensitive eyes. I love the ease and look of this mascara but it stings my eyes :( I wish Revlon would go gluten-free so I could use this amazing budget-friendly mascara.

Hair Color -Revlon -Colorsilk

on 6/7/2018 6:54:00 AM

I've used Colorsilk in Light Brown three times now and I am very impressed and will certainly continue to use it! It covers greys, is easy to use, smells nice and leaves a rich colour for weeks. The conditioner leaves my hair soft. This is the best at-home box colour brand that I've used, plus the price is great. I was using Garnier Nutrisse for years, but the greys were coming in and it just did not cover them at all. I'm so glad I tried Colorsilk after reading the great reviews here. I just wish it was easier to find (I'm in Toronto, Canada).

Mascara -Revlon -Super Length Mascara

Worse mascara I've ever bought. I buy lots of different brands of mascara from $$$-$. It didn't lengthen and made my lashes look "bla" If Revlon was handing this mascara out for free.... I would say "No Thank you".

Crème -Revlon -New Complexion One-Step Compact Makeup

update: 6-4-18....I am a little darker so I blend some of the Ivory beige with the Tender Peach and it's perfect for my summer NC 20 skin....Don't freak out if you do this when you look at the containers...the Tender Peach looks very dark, but goes on totally different....I absolutely LOVE the color with these two together....and they will last a long time...I'm amazed how great my skin is looking with this!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE! I have combo skin, like a little more coverage. Was finding my Olay/Covergirl Simply Ageless cream foundation to be too cakey and heavy for summer. So on a whim, I picked this up for $12.00 at walmart. I got Ivory beige/01 which when I compared to the classic ivory in the Covergirl, this had a tiny bit more yellow to it which I wanted. It looks very dark in the container, but goes on much lighter....But it blends like a dream....covers great....and NOT NOT CAKEY!!! I worked outside and sweated profusely and this lasted! I sweated, but didn't have streaks of makeup. I layer a couple layers with my fingers....and even though I am combo skin, I don't set this with powder....my nose gets a little shiny throughout the day but otherwise, i just have a nice satin look....It is creamy and a dream to apply so of course, it is gonna take a little longer to set than some cream to powder foundations. I have SUPER sensitive skin and since luckily this has no Bismuth in it, I don't break out....It's so comfortable to wear and I realize how I "used" to "feel my makeup on my skin"...but with this, I don't really feel it....it feels wonderful on the skin. I honestly have never tried a foundation so wonderful!!I LOVE LOVE LOVE this....PLEASE REVLON....DONT STOP MAKING THIS!!!!! PS you could expand your colors in this BEST FOUNDATION out there!


Lipstick -Revlon -Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Honey

The color is gorgeous when you first apply it, but I find that the shine and gloss wear off after about 30 minutes, leaving my lips looking crusty. Too bad, because it really is a pretty color.

Lips -Revlon -Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Creme

on 5/28/2018 9:25:00 PM

foto

Since Revlon calls these a lip creme, markets them as a lip creme-"cushiony soft formula with a creamy shine finish", according to their website-I would expect a creamier product. But what I got was a very thin gloss. I bought two, Almond Suede and Velvet Mink. They could have been pretty colors, but the pigment you see as you start applying it doesn't really translate to much of anything as you distribute it over your lips. I guess if you wanted a very thick, gloppy layer on your lips, you would get more color. Anyhow, as I said, it is a very thin gloss. I wasn't looking for a true lip gloss, as that is not what they are marketing it as. The wear time is very poor, even for a gloss, due to the thinness of it. It's not the worst lip product I have ever tried, but I would never waste my money on it again. I will use them for quick trips to the store, and other times when I don't need something that has to stay on very long. Or when I just want a natural look. Oh, and as far as the plumping, I didn't have any expectations for that to be true, so I wasn't disappointed when it didn't have any plumping effect.

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

on 5/28/2018 2:06:00 PM

I was so sketpical even with all of the real-time youtube video tutorials and reviews, but this does dry your hair so much faster and easier than using a separate round brush. I love that it doesn't rotate on its own, so no fear about getting your hair stuck in it. My was done in no time flat and there was no comparison in how much better it looked than when I use a round brush on my own. Only complaint it is a bit heavy and not sure this is travel friendly.

Eye Shadow -Revlon -Perle Eyeshadow Singles

on 5/28/2018 1:10:00 PM

I purchased this in "Java." The color is nice, but at my age (56) sparkles don't work, and this appears to have tiny bits of glitter in it, albeit not a ton. Formula feels gritty to me, so this one is a no-go.


Liquid -Revlon -ColorStay Makeup (24 hour formula)

on 5/28/2018 10:01:00 AM

Very long wearing but sadly this is going in the foundation quarantine section of my vanity and possibly in the garbage. I've been testing the foundation's I own and they all clog my pores except one I don't like and a pricier one so far. This one gave me whiteheads at the end of the day. Sigh.

The coverage of this is light to medium. The color selection is sad for people with yellow/olive undertones. In one layer it looks like a natural satin finish. On a second layer it doesn't look as natural.

The ones that don't seem to break me out are Loreal Pro Matte and Clinique Pro matte. FYI I fall around NC 42 and the closest match in Color stay was Golden Caramel.
