Liquid -Revlon -Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily

This is the best foundation I have bought, and I have been through some high end ones from Dior and Lancome, but this totally beats them up!

Buff is a great shade for Caspers like myself. I would 100% recommend this foundation to anyone with combo or oily skin because:
- it is medium to full, very full coverage
- it lasts for ages on its own, but with a primer and some setting spray it gets me through 14 hours of wear!
- solid choice no matter the climate - where I live the summer is scorchingly hot, the winter is freezing cold and this stays put!
- it is easy to blend and it does not look cakey (of course, a full beat base cannot look like 'no-makeup makeup' but this foundation does not look like a mask at all; it is as natural as it can get for a full coverage
- does not oxidise and does not settle into lines

And best of all, it has a pump and it is cheap!

Lipstick -Revlon -Color Stay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

This does not work. It’s patchy, doesn’t stay on the lips, moves around, doesn’t apply evenly. Got it in 050 Couture. The color is OK -a deep rosey-red- but the formula is disappointing. I’m sad that I didn’t look for a review before. Wasted my money on this.


Powder -Revlon -ColorStay Aqua Mineral Makeup

I honestly bought this product just to see what the cooling sensation felt like. It DOES have a cooling sensation when applied...as if your makeup brush is wet or damp...it doesn't bother me at all and I actually like it.

I don't understand all the bad reviews on here - this is a nice powder. It is NOT a powder foundation. On a scale of 1 - 10, I'd say coverage is around a 3. It is VERY moisturizing and the first ingredient is water, which I've personally never seen in a powder. It's usually talc (which is very drying). Paired with a concealer, this powder gives a nice, natural look without filling in fine lines. I can't say this enough...I own Laura Mercier Translucent powder, NARS setting powder, amongst others and they both settle into fine lines and create a bit of cakiness, but this Aqua powder does NOT. I was actually really surprised this is so good bc no one ever talks about it. It is fragrance free as well. There's a tiny bit of mica (shiny particle) in it, but in direct sunlight I found it to be undetectable and extremely minimal. I picked up the shade light/medium and my shade is NC 30 in Mac and w-3/w-4 in L'Oréal True Match. If you have dry skin and looking for a hydrating setting powder or a powder to set concealer, then this isndefinitely worth trying. I bought mine for $12.99 at the grocery store.

Liquid -Revlon -Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily

I’m very fair/porcelain with neautral undertones (NC15)? And oily/combination skin -so it’s hard to find good foundations!

Usually have to purchase high-end foundation as cheaper ones don’t have a decent shade ranges- esp for very porcelain skin and very deep Skintones. This range does, which is awesome! :)

I purchased the shade Ivory- the lightest shade -and it matched me perfectly.

The formula is fragrance free & med-full coverage. I prefer lighter coverage, however I like this as can use little, sheer it out and it will last for ages. :) So saves money!

Looks great on skin, has a lovely matte finish. I prefer to use with a setting powder. It lasts really well all day, feels comfortable, soft and non-greasy. Only place it starts to fade at the end of the day is on my nose, but this is expected anyway. I don’t touch it up during the day. Easy to remove with makeup remover cloth and cleanser.

The packaging is good, glass and has a pump which is nice. Only complaint is they often put stickers on it, and when you peel it off leaves a nasty tacky surface.

In New Zealand it’s on the med/pricey side, in the $45 range - so like to get it when it’s on special.

Used the whole bottle up and would repurchase. :)

Lipstick -Revlon -Ultra HD Gel Lip Color

Somewhere between lipstick and gloss. Opaque, smooth and lightweight. I got Dessert and Sand, both beautiful ‘my lips but better’ colours. Very moisturising and the moisture lasts even when it’s worn off. The fragrance doesn’t bother me, it’s kind of fruity, although I much prefer vanilla type scents. Better than some high end brands without the extortionate cost. Highly recommend!

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

on 11/23/2017 2:46:00 PM

It's the cusp of winter, and my face is starting to get a little drier, so I'm upping my moisturizing products game. I picked up the Revlon YOuth FX Primer this week and thought that it would do well after my gel moisturizer and BB cream. Alas, I added a small amount to the area over my eye lids and under my eyes, a little on my crows feet, and another small dab on my nose, and they started to burn. I'm not sure entirely what's in the product to make it burn, but it was not pleasant.

I quickly removed the product and put it away for a couple of days. Tried it again, only this time the product went on without any other products to see if it was a reaction. Nope, still burned like a mofo. Gritted my teeth through it and added some blush over it on my cheeks and a light sweep of eyeshadow over top and some translucent powder. Took about 5 minutes before the burning stopped. But it was not pleasant. I've thrown the bottle out and will not be buying another.

Do not recommend.

TL;DR: Causes burning sensation wherever applied.

Liquid -Revlon -ColorStay Stay Natural Makeup

This review is for the Colorstay "stay natural" foundation, which is different from the Colorstay foundations for different skin types. I'm not sure how different it is, but they are separate products.

This is a great foundation. For background, I apply it with my fingers, without any primer (I know. I'm lazy and life is short). It goes on smoothly, light to medium coverage, pretty buildable. The texture is...foundation-y when you look close, I'm not sure how else to describe it. It evens out my skin really nicely and despite the SPF 15, it doesn't look shiny! At all! And it stays that way! I have normal-slightly oily skin and it keeps me matte! I don't know why, but I love that about it. I even went to the gym and it didn't slide off or get shiny. Another thing to love: it doesn't oxidise! When it dries, it does dry to a shade darker, which is fine for me since the colour I have is on the light side for me. It just looks so darn good.

Pros:
doesn't oxidise
smooths out my skin
looks good with light coverage
can be applied with fingers
doesn't slide off, resists sweat

Cons:
texture might not be smooth enough for some? that's literally it.

EDIT: I got it on sale for $20, when it's normally $30. I wouldn't have tried it at that price but since it's so good, I'll definitely repurchase even at full price.

Also, I have olive skin, and a lot of foundations look super orange on me - this foundation suits my skin!! I'm so happy!

Foundations -Revlon -Revlon Photo Ready Insta-Filter Foundation

I got this at the grocery store for about $13.99 USD.
It has a sponge attached to the bottle. So you twist the foundation up and it comes up through the sponge. The texture of this foundation felt like paste, the bottle stopped working after two applications. So after shaking the bottle and twisting the bottom the foundation stopped coming up.

Brows -Revlon -Color Stay Brow Pencil

I gotta show this thing some love. The texture is ideal- good and waxy, but dry, so it won't slide off... it lives up to the Colorstay name. The slant tip actually works to help create clean lines, and stays miraculously in shape for the life of the pencil. I'm repurchasing now!


Mascara -Revlon -Ultimate All-In-One Mascara

Worst mascara I have ever purchased. After one use, it became so clumpy it was impossible to use. Even during that first day of use, I had mascara flakes under my eyes during the day. The brush is small and useless. Total waste of money.


Mascara -Revlon -Super Length Mascara

Reached for this product after liking Revlon's lash defining mascara (the purple one in this packaging which I assume is discontinued). The product itself is a good mascara but -- and I don't know if I just got really unlucky -- the brush sheds, and that is baaaad. I tried wiping it off with a paper towel, thinking I could purge it of any loose bristles, and every time, more of them came off. Not good for a product I use on my eyes. I had to toss it, unfortunately.


Polishes -Revlon -ColorStay Gel Envy All or Nothing

I would have loved this nail polish if it hasn't destroyed my nails.
I never knew that my nails have so many layers and that they can split so badly because of nail polish.

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

After reading the reviews here, I decided to get a tube of Fire and Ice for myself. I don't know, but it's not an orange red. It looks like a shocking pink red and I can't wear it. I have a lot of Super Lustrous lipsticks that I can wear. This one I can't.

This product is goopy and horrible. The applicator is way too big. If you use any more than the tiniest amount it just turns into a sticky mess.
