Lipstick -Revlon -ColorBurst Matte Unapologetic

on 5/25/2018 11:03:00 PM

After seeing swatches online I thought I’d love this product, but on me it just looked like I’d smeared a neon orangey-red zinc stick across my lips! It’s certainly opaque and matte, but also kind of patchy. Really disappointing, I had to throw it away.

I’ve got a fair neutral-warm skin tone (nc20) and fairly pigmented lips, for reference.

GOOD NEWS! THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN REPACKAGED BUT IS STILL AVAILABLE!

5/24/18: I was SO disappointed when this foundation was discontinued. I wrote to Revlon this month and their customer service initially replied to my message with this: "Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup. These are the shades that are available: Sand Beige, Natural Beige, Medium Beige, True Beige." Since this didn't tell me much, I replied asking them where I could purchase those shades.

Fortunately, a second customer service rep answered with info that was much more helpful: "Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup has been REPACKAGED in a tube and is now called ColorStay Full Cover Foundation. The product may not be readily available at all retail outlets at this time. Please continue to check with your local stores that carry our products to inquire about the availability in their stores."

Well, I checked at my local Rite Aid and the repackaged formula named COLORSTAY FULL COVER FOUNDATION is available in my local store! It is now in a tube, which surely addresses the issue many people had with the old packaging (glass jar). The color selection and more info is available on Revlon's website. Anyway, I'm VERY HAPPY that the original formula is still available and has simply been repackaged. Honestly, with so many stellar reviews about this product I couldn't understand why they discontinued it to begin with!

According to Revlon's customer service department, this product is the repackaged version of the "Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup" that came in a jar and is being discontinued. This makes me really happy, because the jar makeup was one of the best foundations I've ever used (though a lot of people complained about the packaging). I was so disappointed to think it would be discontinued. Fortunately, it's just been repackaged as "Colorstay Full Cover Foundation." Here's the response I received when I wrote to ask about it: "Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup has been REPACKAGED in a tube and is now called ColorStay Full Cover Foundation. The product may not be readily available at all retail outlets at this time. Please continue to check with your local stores that carry our products to inquire about the availability in their stores."

Liquid -Revlon -Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily

on 5/23/2018 7:43:00 PM

A very "safe" drugstore foundation. Gives you medium coverage and has a good consistency -- not as thick as a full-coverage foundation, but not too runny, either. It goes on pretty smooth but seems to accentuate my dry patches if I don't exfoliate beforehand. I also got this back when it was packaged just in a bottle, but I'm glad to see Revlon jumped on the pump bandwagon for later versions.

The only reason I'm giving this 4 lippies and won't buy again is because the lightest shade in the combo/oily variety (Ivory 110) still manages to oxidize noticeably on me, and that I can't abide. But if you can find your shade in this line, I'd say go for it.

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

I know this is a highly rated classic but it was two orange on me. It was very vibrant and had great pigment. Needs serious blotting because it is really creamy. Not for me but not bad if it works with your skin tone.

Liquid -Revlon -Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily

This foundation made me register on this site simply to say how awful it is! The worst foundation I bought in my entire life! Well after few cheapest ones when I was a child and didn't know better.
To start with it's formula-it's sticky and oily! Yes oily for a combination/oily skin! I have no idea why but it's so runny and sticky at the same time. But the worst part starts when you apply it to the skin! It's hard to settle it, it's hard to make it stop being sticky at all! Unless you use powder to make it settle God help you with it!
Next thing is it's color-I use Ivory foundations usually so I bought this in Ivory as well-110 to be exact. And when I put it on I look like a vampire!Seriously, it will color your skin to white! I'm fair skinned but I'm not a vampire for God's sake! Next thing is you can literally see it's white particles as white dots in pores! It's plain awful to look at at! It doesn't distribute evenly no matter what you use to apply it with!
So to everyone considering this foundation and specially this color, be prepared for a disappointment of your life if you ever used any fairly good foundation! I don't usually use the most expensive foundations so it's not compared to them but to regular drugstore products such as L'Oreal, Max Factor etc...


Concealers -Revlon -Revlon PhotoReady Stick Concealer

This stick is an easy to apply, easy to blend lightweight concealer, which makes it ideal for travel or on-the-go touch ups. You can reapply throughout the day without it getting cakey. However, it is so lightweight that it does fade and I wouldn’t trust it to cover very dark circles or big blemishes.

I purchased this because I was on vacation and the foundation that I had was too light. I bought Natural Ochre which is around an NC20. It has a more neutral base, I have yellow tones and it is definitely not yellow but not pink either. I was interested in trying it because it says Full Cover. It is a medium coverage with one coat but high coverage with two. I completely agree with the first reviewer that this seems to be the Colorstay Whipped repackaged in a tube. At first I wasn't crazy about this but how I found it works well for my oily skin is to use a matte primer (I use Rimmel Stay Matte). At first it did seem cakey with 2 coats but I used Wayne Goss's tip to mix a drop of face oil (I use rosehip oil) with the foundation on the back of my hand and it goes on without cakiness but a nice glow. I would repurchase this but I doubt I will because I'd like to try some of the other fuller coverage foundations out there.


Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous in Bare Affair

on 5/21/2018 10:53:00 AM

This is a really light neutral. Most of the Revlon are solid when it comes to color but this seems a little sheer compared to the others. It is not drying but I think that is also why it doesn't last very long..I like a lot of the revlon lipsticks but it seems i like the darker ones better than the sheers.

This is like a neutral brown....i really wanted to like it but the color didn't work for me. I am fair skinned with reddness and this just made me look paler and redder......I like a lot of the revlon lipsticks and they have so many color options so it's to be expected to have some misses...i will still repurchase other colors but this was a pass for me

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

on 5/21/2018 12:49:00 AM

The best hair tool I've ever purchased!

I'm extremely lazy when it comes to styling my hair, I just do not have the dexterity to use a round brush and a blow dryer, plus majority of my time goes into perfecting my brows. I love that I can dry and style my hair at the same time without using 2-3 different tools.

It seems large and bulky but it really isn't once you start using it. The noise is bearable, it is a blow dryer after all.

Hair Treatments -Revlon -Uniq One All-in-One Hair Treatment

This is my favourite hair product and I can't wash my hair without using this! I have the coconut scented one and it really is amazing. I saw this for the first time at a hair salon and when the stylist blew dry my hair I was amazed how smooth was and just had to buy it! I just bought my third bottle.I use this generously after towel drying my hair and then I comb through with a wet brush. It helps detangle my really long hair and smells amazing. My hair always feel softer and frizz free when I use this spray and I've tried loads. I've noticed less split ends while using this product for months and I regularly blow dry and straighten my hair. I will continue to buy this because it has so many benefits for my damaged highlighted blonde hair.

I'm actually in awe because I was not expecting this fragrance to smell as delightful as it does. I bought a BIG CLEAR bottle ( NOT FROSTED) off of eBay for $7.50. The bottle is simple and classic. It reminds me of a soft version of Sand and Sable. I smell tuberose, musk, lilies, and honey the most. It's a very tropical scent. Very light and whimsical after the dry down. Nice sillage not too strong. Lasts a few hours before needing to reapply but for such an inexpensive product I don't mind spraying it often. This smells better than most expensive perfumes. Some say it smells like Maroussia but not so much. Maroussia is my signature scent that's why I bought this because people said it smells like Maroussia. Some say it smells like Red Door I disagree. Give this fragrance a try. It's great for the daytime in the summer and not to strong for the office. Honestly, it's a perfect scent. It a tad fruity and creamy. It is kind of soapy but in the best way possible ..it's very fresh. I'm delighted with this product. I hope they never stop making it. I got 3 compliments on it today from friends. You can't go wrong with this one.

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous lipstick "Love is On"

on 5/17/2018 8:58:00 AM

I bought this today on sale, out of a whim and I’m so glad I did. This shade Love Is On looks like a limited edition with really cute packaging. It almost reminds me of LE products from MAC.
Anyways, this lipstick is a blue based cream lipstick that makes your teeth look whiter compared to orange based lipsticks.
I’m surprised I actually liked it because I rarely like lipsticks from the drugstore anymore. I find most are are miss, rather than a hit.
This is like any other cream lipstick and it doesn’t have a lasting effect compared to matte lipsticks; but the colour of this product makes up for that. I don’t mind reapplying after eating a meal. So definitely for $6 CAD this colour is worth it.
Side note: this lipstick smells sweet, like peaches/fruit from the tube but not when after your apply it. So if you’re sensitive to scents you may not like it.
