Lipstick -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Honey

foto

Actually one of my favourite everyday lip products that I carry around with me. It's in a convenient crayon that you can just smear on and it'll look great - any product that strays outside the lip line can pass as being purposely overdrawn. It's a cool-toned dusty pink that dries down to a brighter pink shade. I do like how it dries down after 2 hours or so and then wears off nicely, like a stain.

It's not that moisturizing on its own so I often layer with a lip balm. I wish there were more muted neutral colours that I liked from this line but the rest seem to be pretty intense, which I don't think I could apply as easily sans mirror. Also, it has a minty scent and feel, which is refreshing and tingly to me but others might not like.

Took off a lipstick for packaging becuse the name on the crayon has rubbed off.

Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - All Colors

on 5/26/2017 10:01:00 PM

I actually used up one of these because I love it so much. The colour, the staying power and the price are exactly what I demand in my lip products. I can work 5 hours shifts and the colour hasn't budged. It does fade a little after eating but this can be easily fixed with a swipe of moisturising lip balm. I have bought two more colours. Excited to use them up as well!

Blush -Revlon - Golden Affair Sculpting Blush- Rose Rapture

foto

This is honestly my favorite blush and it lasts forever. It really is perfect for my skin no matter what depth I'm at. Its matte but not dry or flat looking and really flattering. It's buildable and doesnt kick back or deliver too much colour to the cheek and I find it compliments most bronzers and highlights without causing any colour clashes or reddening a contour.

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

on 5/26/2017 9:37:00 AM

foto

This is HG for me. I try other things from time to time, because makeup, but I come back to this. I am in the shade 150 in the winter and 180 in the summer.

I apply with either fingers, a Real Techniques sponge or an Artis-like brush (the ones that look like fluffy toothbrushes). I like this any way I apply it, though overall prefer application with the brush (mine is from Crown Brush, I got it in my Boxycharm for May 2017).

This stuff wears like iron on my combo skin and has great coverage. I feel like it has a good shade range, and has a neutral enough option for my skin tone.

This also has a pump, which is great- until you get to the end of the bottle- then I lay the bottle on its side and use the straw thingy inside to scoop the foundation out, lol. Either way, I can sure get pretty much all the product out!

It's a smidge pricey- but Ulta frequently has Revlon buy 1 get one 50% off, so I usually stock up on a couple bottles then. It's not as cheap as like Wet and Wild, but comparable to L'Oreal and Maybelline.

I really like this foundation, wear time is great and color match is excellent for me.

Concealers -Revlon - Revlon PhotoReady Stick Concealer

foto

I swear by this product below are my reasons why this is my #1 go to product.


1) It really does cover red spots ( Pimples, or red blotchy areas around the nose or chin etc )
2) It does not have a scent.
3) Full Coverage in only the spots you need ( I use the Original Pink Beauty blender sold at Sephora for 26$ and its blends quiet nicely.
4) It can also be used under the eyes ( In my opinion its a little bit thick to use under eyes as it will sink into wrinkles over time)\
5) It wasn't super pricey either, about 20$ and I have been using it everysingle day for about 5-6 months.

Overall I think Revlon could have done a prettier packaging, the packaghing was a little bit dull and could have used something more appealing to the eye.


Hope this helps... If ever you want to see how great this product is, I would be happy to post pictures of before and after :)

Pressed Powders -Revlon - PhotoReady Translucent Finisher

foto

When I first purchased this product I was a little unsure as its a pressed powder opposed to a loose translucent powder which I am more familliar with... BUT... I LOVE IT!

1) The packaging was regular/ standard. *(it could have had a prettier packaging or design/colour)
2) There is no scent and is non-comogenic.
3) It really does leave a matt finish (It keeps your face looking matt for a good 5+ hours) *I have oily skin during the summer usually*
4) The price is AMAZING- About 15$ when I purchased months ago from Montreal Pharmapix.
5) Whats so amazing about this product is that it truly does hide pores (medium to large)
6) It locks in your foundation.

Note; I really would suggest this to everyone! Especially in the summer time, I used to wear a tone of makeup and experienced lots of clogged pores and breakouts due to the coverage, Now I use only whats needed to enhance my features.. If your interested in some sleek and easy products before your work day view below!


1) Photofinish "Revlon" Stick 001 (this acts as a foundation only for the areas I want to cover like sides of nose or some red spots etc..
2) Garnier Concealer ( It acts as under eye treatment and its light buildable coverage, sometimes I use in other areas and it never left me with a breakout there is no scent. )
3) Bounce Blush "Maybelline" ( I have been using the same one about 9 months and I still have half of it left *I use it daily for cheeks and sometimes on lip to add a little extra color)
4) Lash Falsies Mascara "Maybelline" ( It makes your eyes pop & makes them super super long)


Anyways long review but I really feel like this will help some of you make some decisions on the products your skeptical about :)

Lipstick -Revlon - Colorstay Overtime Lipcolor

on 5/25/2017 1:36:00 PM

So disappointed. I got the color perennial peach, which is a gorgeous summer neutral. That's the only thing I like though. It's pricey for drugstore, and you get a tiny bit of product for the price. The gloss doesn't apply smoothly, and the color comes out patchy. I applied 2 coats for an even color, but within an hour it was flaming off my lips, especially around my waterline, and looked awful. I'll be returning it.


Primer/ Corrector -Revlon - YOUTH FX™ FILL + BLUR PRIMER FOR FACE/NECK

OK I'm not big on reviews, but I was really aggravated by the first review, and how she specifically targeted other reviews, basically stating that only hers was truthful. First, just because a person only reviews one brand, does not mean the reviews are fake. Yes, there are companies that do hire people to write reviews, but I highly doubt you are the all knowing authority on which ones are true and which ones are not. It could mean the person is loyal to that brand. Second, the only meaningful and honest thing about that review, is where she said no product gets rid of wrinkles. That is definitely correct, but this product is not advertised to get rid of wrinkles, but simply to blur them, which it actually does. I have a very prominent brow line, I've had it since I was very young. I believe I developed it from frowning at ridiculous comments, said by idiotic people. With that said, this product did in fact blur that line. While it is still slightly visible, it is just that, only slightly visible. I'm actually impressed. I bought a similar product, except far more expensive, and while that product also blurred my forehead lines, it left a white residue behind and would flake off. That product was 95 dollars for a 2 oz tube. This product is 19.99, leaves no residue, blurs lines, and leaves skin smooth for makeup application. I would definitely buy this product again. I really didn't expect it to do what it said. Most of the products that claim this, do not. Much to my surprise, this one did. It did not completely get rid of my lines, but it definitely blurred them, and made them far less visible.

Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Matte - Really Red

Classic pinup red, really soft matte but never drying on my lips. I always have one in my handbag and one as a backup in my beauty case. Revlon seems to make the classic lip colours I'm after and never disappoints me. 💕💕💕

Liquid -Revlon - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

on 5/25/2017 4:06:00 AM

This product has really good staying power. The coverage when i used half a pump is really good but considering i dont have scarring i cant tell whether its really full coverage. I have rather normal skin so I cant really tell if it lasts long on combination to oily skin. For reference I am a true olive/ olive beige with little to no yellow tones on my skin and im light skinned. I bought it in Sand Beige which is very neutral, when i swatched it on my wrist, I couldnt see any hint of yellow but its really ashy. However, this is the closest match to my skin so for those who has a light olive beige skin, i recommend you to try this. The reason why I removed one lippie is because the ingredients are really bad for the body. It does contain parabens and if you input the ingredients in Skindeep EWG, the risk level is moderate borderlining high, but if your skin likes it by all means use it (:

Blush -Revlon - Powder Blush 024 Bronze Beauty

on 5/24/2017 8:00:00 PM

I added this product as a blush as that's how it's described on the package but I use it as a bronzer. I'm NC20/25 leaning neutral and it's lovely bronzer for my skin tone - not too warm. It says satin on the package but I found it applied matte and blended very well. It's competing with my Tom Ford in Terra which is a bit warmer.I may like the Revlon better which pains me to admit lol. I will update if anything changes.
p.s. the TF is only 3x more expensive which is surprising as I thought is would be a lot more. TF is $6.50 per gram in the large size and the Revlon is $2 per gram. Go figure.

This is a red that pulls too pink fuchsia dark on me. Then again, I have trouble finding red lipsticks I like--it may work for you.

Liquid -Revlon - ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex SPF 15 Normal/Dry Skin

on 5/24/2017 2:44:00 AM

foto

This is not a good foundation for dry skin despite what the bottle says. It's very matte so it clings and enhances every dry patch. My nose literally looked like I'd make a paste out of chalk and talcum powder and rubbed it on my face.

The only good thing about it was the coverage. On the fuller side for med-full for sure.

If you have normal skin then I absolutely recommend this foundation for you. It's easy to apply and great coverage and colour range but for us unfortunate dry skinned girls and boys STAY AWAY.

Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous - Mauvy Night

On my pigmented lips, this offers a slight boost of color. It is not drying and glides on my lips nicely. It was hard to find as it was alway sold out but I was able to locate it at my local Target. I adore mauve colors and this one is wonderful in completing my daily look.

Primer/ Corrector -Revlon - YOUTH FX™ FILL + BLUR PRIMER FOR FACE/NECK

UPDATE: Despite melissarippy disagreeing with my review, the reviews I thought were fake have now been mysteriously deleted. I still believe they were false reviews, and it is a shame when consumers are mislead by false ratings on products. As she helpfully pointed out, I am not an authority on fake reviews. What I am, though, is an average consumer who relies on reviews from folks like you and me--who have actually used the product--to help guide how I spend my money. I review products in an honest manner on this site as well as others, and I think it is appropriate to warn others of potentially fake reviews and will continue to do so.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:
I think the first four reviews of this product are sketchy. First, they all happened on the same day within the same hour. Second, if you look at other products they've reviewed, they're almost exclusively Revlon. Seems highly unlikely, so take it with a grain of salt. Does Revlon really need fake reviews to help sales? Ugh.

As for me, I received this as a platinum member gift from Ulta. I think it's a decent primer. I am over 40 and have a line on my forehead and lines between my eyebrows in the glabella region, known as "elevens". I have a couple of fine lines in my eye area, but I'm mostly concerned about my forehead and the elevens. After reading about Fill & Blur, I was hopeful that the product would smooth the lines a little and make them less apparent, but that didn't happen. It also didn't blur my hyperpigmentation. It did help my makeup go on smoothly, but all primers do that. No product gets rid of lines, but this product is marketed specifically to people like me for camouflaging these imperfections. It falls short of doing that, but still works nicely as a regular primer.
