Lipstick -REVLON -Super Lustrous Creme - Berry Haute 660

This is it! I think I’ve found my HG lipstick. I have fair to light skin tone with cool undertones. My lips are pigmented a bit and definitely on the cool side. I have been in search of a lipstick that’s just a tad brighter and darker than my own lips. So many have browns or warm undertones and tend to have an orange cast on me - hate that. My daughter introduced me to MAC Up the Amp and I really like it but it’s more of a pop color on me. This Berry Haute is just perfect. It’s more subtle than Up the Amp and just a tad less cool or purple.

Although I don’t find it as moisturing as my Estee Lauder or MAC lipsticks, it’s okay and not really drying on me. I love this color and will purchase again.

Liquid -REVLON -Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily

The store I was at did not have Color Stay for dry skin so I crossed my fingers and bought this one. Please put on primer before this foundation. It will really show pores and cling to any dry patches. However, I think this is a safe foundation if you have oily skin. There are no major negative or positives about it. The pump and glass bottle features are good (but let's be honest, we kind of expect that from most foundation packagings). I tried applying UD's All Nighter setting spray after application and GOD. NO. It separates immediately and the foundation gradually disappears in patches (I don't know what's the science behind is but ew gross). I would not purchase it again because I still have dry skin and I don't feel like going out looking like my skin needs a glass of water.

Eye Shadow -REVLON -ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow

foto

I have the shade 730 (praline), which is a cool toned rose gold shade. It's a waterproof cream eyeshadow that goes on smoothly and stays on my eyelids which btw are quite oily. I like the colour and the shimmer a lot but I don't enjoy the sparse silver glitter particles.

Concealers -REVLON -ColorStay Under Eye Concealer

I bought this in the lightest shade, and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't actually too dark on me (this is not usual - my skin is very fair.) It has a cooler undertone and sits well under or over foundation, and does hold well with powder and/or fixing spray. Unfortunately, it does settle into creases around the eyes and the texture is quite oily and it slips about until it sets. If you're on a budget, I would recommend this - but Makeup Academy does an even cheaper version that is just as good, if not better, than this product.

Lipstick -REVLON -Matte Balm Enchanting 255

on 8/13/2018 7:03:00 PM

I love this balm! It does dry my lips out a little (be warned - it is not kiss-proof and will not stand up to a meal out with the family,) but it is well-pigmented and lasts really rather well under normal day-to-day life. I tend to find it needs touching up every 2-4 hours, and can look cakey if you don't take it off properly before reapplying, or it might settle into the lines of your lips. This shade would suit a warmer or neutral complexion well, for a nice, natural look. It's a lipstick I just can't live without.


Lips -REVLON -Colorburst Matte Balm (All Shades)

The bottom line: this balm is super-pigmented and lasts fairly well, but will dry your lips out. I bought an adorable coral-nude colour (255 - 'Enchanting,) which would really suit warmer and neutral skin undertones. My trusty balm is going strong over a year later, and I use it for a natural look. If that's your kind of thing, you won't be disappointed!

Top/Base Coats -REVLON -Transforming Effects Top Coat in Pink Glaze

on 8/13/2018 1:36:00 PM

foto

I’m pretty sure this polish was designed as a top coat to be worn over a dark polish.... But, I like it over my bare nail. It’s just so pretty and sheer, and when the light catches it you can see the iridescent shimmer. It’s gorgeous, with just one coat. It’s a nice light pink, with a hint of gold. It comes in the standard Revlon bottle and brush, which has been working fine for me. The formula is very easy to work with, too.

Liquid -REVLON -ColorStay Makeup SPF 20 Normal/Dry Skin

I see why people compare this to Mac Studio Fix Fluid. It’s similar in terms of coverage and shades, except this is definitely more matte. Despite saying this is for normal/dry skin, this is the most matte foundation I currently have (beaten only by MUFE). If you have dry skin you definitely won’t need to powder this, even down the T zone, though blush still seems to blend over it. I have very dry scaley (at times) skin and don’t find it clings to dry patches more than other foundations, but if this is the dry skin one I’d be interested to see how it differs from the oily skin version.

Coverage is good - about studio fix, maybe slightly higher, as stated above. I’d say you can definitely build up to full, and it builds beautifully without caking when using a beauty blender. I even use it under my eyes instead of concealer and it does about the same job covering up my very blue patches, though does settle in wrinkles a bit under the eyes. It’s pretty skin-like too. It looks very natural and isn’t obvious. If you’re searching for a high coverage foundation that looks more natural I’d recommend this.

I got 110 ivory and I’d say it’s about an nw10. I’m yellow toned so I put 2 drops of yellow food colouring into a near full bottle and that turned it closer to nc10. This worked well, I shook the bottle well and it wasn’t streaky or separated due to the colouring.

I don’t really have anything bad to say about this. If you’re after a moisturising luminous foundation this isn’t it - it’s matte and pink toned, however it’s not ridiculously dry, you won’t sweat through it, it’s long lasting and high coverage. I’m also fond of the bottle. The pump has good control and keeps it clean. I can see it easily becoming a staple.

Lipstick -REVLON -Colorstay ultimate suede 010 "women's wear"

on 8/10/2018 7:30:00 PM

First time I tried this product and the last time. I was looking for a pinkish color, because I can't have enough pinks. :p This lipstick is SO dry, it showed lines in my lips I never knew were even there! It is very very dry & sticky (if that's possible at same time). The color also was lighter looking than in the tube. I guess I won't try anymore Revlon products. For some reason, have never been a fan of Revlon anyway. I tend to like L'Oreal or Maybelline. To me, they are better quality products. Sooo, if you're looking for a very dry, sticky, pink-ish lipstick, you would like this, but if not I can suggest L'Oreal. I have tons of lipstick because to me, if i don't have anything else on, i WILL have my lipstick/blush on. Most times I use the lipstick for both. It's creamy, blends in easy, and always matches! :-) Anyway folks, that's my 2 cents worth.

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

I always forget how amazing this foundation is! I just repurchased again after trying every drugstore foundation known to man and this is by far the best for my oily, breakout prone skin. There are many neutral shades available and I can get a perfect match for my yellow undertoned pale skin, and I love that it doesn’t oxidize on your skin at all so there is no worry that you are slowly transforming into an oompa loompa!

The full coverage is amazing and a little goes a long way. This also lasts ALL day on me and I only need to touch up with powder midway through the day which never happens with other foundations. It doesn’t break my skin out at all either with is another huge bonus! The only con I can think of is that it does need some good cleansing to remove, but that is due to the great lasting coverage, so that is not a big deal at all. Overall, this is a fabulous full coverage foundation at a great price that works really well for us oily skinned ladies! Highly recommend!!!

Brows -REVLON -Brow Fantasy in Brunette

The concept of this product makes sense however the functionality and quality make it a waste of money. The gel has very little color and found the bristles to be rather stiff and difficult to work. The pencil is far too soft so it doesn't hold a point and it gums up your eyebrows giving them an unnatural look. Because of it's consistency, you are constantly having to sharpen it so it disappears at a much faster rate than the gel. The bulky center barrel that it is connected to prohibits you from sharpening the pencil once it hits it certain length as it won't reach the blade of the sharpener. It also cannot be removed so if you want a point, you would have to whittle it with a knife. It only took a couple weeks of using daily to get there too so now I'm stuck with the gel and a useless pencil. You are far better off buying the products separately and will get more for the money. I think a 2-pack of Maybelline Expert Wear brow pencils will set you back $3-$4 dollars and they last an eternity. (These are the red ones that your mom and grandma used!) As for gel, NYX Control Freak gel (colorless) is only about $5. I think I wasted almost $10 with tax on this product and aside from the gel, got a couple weeks of use from it.

Lipstick -REVLON -Colorstay Overtime Lipcolor

Can we just talk a moment about how underrated these little beauties are? I wore a nude shade of Colorstay years ago in college in its previous iteration and sought out the newer formula somewhat out of nostalgia. I have fallen in love all over again! I'm not usually much for the ultra-longwear latex-paint liquid lippies, as I find them to wear unevenly and many have a patchy, inflexible texture. These Revlon longwears are flexible and comfortable and if they wear down (after hours of sipping drinks, eating oily foods, etc) they do so pretty evenly. The gloss topper has a silicone feeling, so it's not sticky or heavy. I recently used Faithful Fawn for a bridal makeup and it lasted 12hrs and photographed beautifully. My only complaint with this product is the confusing color names! Perfect Spice is a soft pinky-nude. Always Sienna is a wine-tinged neutral that would read as a subdued red on fair skins and MLBB on richer complexions. Faithful Fawn is a shimmery plum-mauve. Go figure.

Lipstick -REVLON -Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

I saw this in my local CVS and couldn't wait to try it on! The shade range with this product is AMAZING, but unfortunately, I was not as happy once I put the product on.
I'm not sure why it's called "matte" lipcolor. There is nothing matte about this product! I left a thin veil-y swatch on my arm and one coat on my lips for 45~ minutes and it was still very moist. If you kiss someone with this product on your lips, expect them to have a perfect replica of your lips -- albeit in a different color -- on them. I repeat, this lip will NOT DRY and is very MOISTURIZED. NOT MATTE at all.
The smell is strange, almost chemical, and somehow reminds me of some sort of candy. Since your lips are, hopefully, right below your nose, you will be smelling this odd smell as long as you have the lip on. It will NOT go away since the product does not matte-ify or dry down in any way, shape, or form.
Overall, I wouldn't buy this product again. For now, I use it to add dimension when I wear a darker nude/rosy mocha lip color. I dab a few dots in the middle of my bottom lip and blend it. It works alright for that, but I will not be purchasing again, trust me!

Polishes -REVLON -Temptress

This is quite possibly the WORST nail polish I have ever used in my entire life. It is absolute garbage. I recommend KleanColor's products instead.
