Eye Shadow -Revlon -PhotoReady Eye Art (all shades)

This was a pleasant surprise. I didn’t use a primer and it stayed on all day. I pat the cream on all over my lid to just above the crease and use the glitter as a Think eyeliner on just my top lash line. Love love love.

Lipstick -Revlon -Colorburst Matte Lip Balm - Sultry

on 5/15/2018 3:57:00 PM

Looks like I am at odds with the rest of the community on this one. You will need a reliable lip liner to go with this product because it won't stay on your lip line. I won't comment on the colour or flavour as that is a matter of personal preference but I will about the performance.
Positives
Light creamy formula feels moisturising on your lips
Colour can be built up from sheer to fuller coverage

Negatives
The colour goes every where and transfers easily. The colour seems to slide around on your lip.
Its difficult to achieve a precise lip line and I find the crayon style makes application much more difficult than a conventional lip stick.
It takes a lot of product to build a strong colour , which will then transfer everywhere.
Even with a good lip liner your lips will soon look like you've just had a bowl of tomato soup.

Summary
There are much better options at this price point. Reminds me of kids play make up.

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Creme - Coralberry 674

Love the creme version of this! The color is awesome, a subtle shimmery coral that ends up looking pinkish on my light yellow/olive skin. It's subdued enough for work but bright enough to be fun. My only complaint is the lasting power -- it lasts 3-4 hours tops.

Lipstick -Revlon -sky line pink

On it's own, this lipstick looks too white. However, it's a terrific layering lipstick. I like to use it over another pink lipstick to make it lighter and shinier. Right now I'm using it over L'oreal's Colour Riche Lipstick in Julianne's Pink. It's good at smoothing out other lipsticks and adding depth. It can make a too dark lipstick lighter. And if you truly desire that 1960's almost white lipstick effect, it can do that on it's own.

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

foto

I bought the Pore Reducing primer, not the perfecting or the brightening, but I couldn't find a product page listed for that so I'm leaving my review here.

For the record, I hate the perfecting primer and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Greasy and pore clogging, typical silicone primer that doesn't do anything. When I look for a silicone primer, I look for a very thick, almost dry texture that provides a matte blurring/soft focus effect. Crap like the Maybelline baby skin and the hard candy sheer envy perfecting primer do nothing but break me out and make my foundation look disgusting.

I've been looking for a drugstore dupe of the urban decay optical illusion primer. Thataylaa, my favorite YouTuber, talked about the pore reducing primer and it seemed to blur her pores on camera so I thought I'd give this a shot. It's kind of pricey for drugstore but Revlon loves to charge ridiculous prices for everything, similar to physician's formula but worse because revlons products are like, 1/5th the quality of physician's formula. It comes in one of those glass bottles with a pump that you can't remove, and I'm pretty sure I'm only going to get half my money's worth of this primer because there's no way to open the damn jar. Do not be fooled, they do this on purpose so you have to buy more, it's not a packaging fail, it has a purpose.

This does have the sort of texture I look for in a silicone primer. Thick, opaque, dries down matte and blurring. It DOES blur your pores. However, it's not a dupe for the optical illusion. That stuff really, actually works. It gives you the most flawless, poreless, perfected base, even on the most textured skin, and it doesn't break me out. The Revlon simply blurs your pores, but you can still tell they are there. The easiest way to describe it would be that the Revlon BLURS your pores, while the urban decay actually FILLS them and makes them disappear. The Revlon doesn't break me out, though, from what I've seen so far, and that's a plus.

I'm going to continue to use it until the packaging inevitably fails to pump out more, but I won't repurchase it, I'll just save my money and get the urban decay.

Blush -Revlon -Powder Blush - Classy Coral

I have always loved revlon blushes . They take time to build up but the finish and sheen is beautiful . Unlike more expensive Brand’s that are very pigmented, this creates a inner glow look . This is one of the more pigmented revlon blushes and the tone looks so fresh . When applied it is not patchy , but it does take patience to apply

Concealers -Revlon -Colorstay Concealer

on 5/12/2018 8:48:00 AM

foto

I tried this using a tester in the store and it looked so beautiful and skin like that I had high hopes. However I realised that this can only be used mainly as a touch up. As a concealer ,the product is too oily and thin to cover anything well . It can’t even cover my light freckles as it literally wipes off and does not dry down .The coverage is so negligible I am better off with CS foundation . However as a touch up it does look nice under a thicker concealer.


Hair Color -Revlon -Colorsilk

Been looking for a great light ash brown to help reduce brass in my light brown hair. After both Nice n Easy and Excellence hair colors left me absolutely too red, Revlon's #50 light ash brown is awesome. No red. A true ash brown. I left mine on for about 10 min and it was dark enough to look natural. 25 min is recommended but I say go by checking. I also used my own 10 vol developer because I mostly wanted color, no lift. Worked great. Half of the color worked for my long hair. I will say that my top roots part still looks too reddish to me like it refuses to take but I think it's because of my prior bad red ash brown experiences. My bottoms took very well and are more ash. May redye just top and longer perhaps or try the med ash brown on just my crown.

But overall, this is the first ash brown color I've found that I am happy enough to repurchase and for $2.99??? Crazy! Love that it has no ammonia, so my hair feels shiny and great. No burning or strong scent either.

Foundations -Revlon -ColorStay Full Cover Foundation

on 5/11/2018 9:19:00 AM

foto

This is a good foundation, just not for my skin type. It says full coverage, but I had to apply more than one layer to cover my spots and redness. It feels nice on the skin, more like a BB or tinted moisturizer. But I have oily skin and I'm not sure how well this would stay on in the summer. The tube packaging is great.
Also had trouble finding the right shade as is common with ds foundation.

Lipstick -Revlon -HD Lip Lacquer

foto

I purchased this thinking it was a gloss. It's really, a seriously glossy finished liquid lipstick. I mean deep, wet, early 2000's glossy. I actually love it! I think it's Revlon's answer to MAC's Lip Glass.

I purchased the shade Pink Ruby at Walgreen's for about $7. It's a screaming fuchsia hot pink with a blue and purple duochrome flip. Very 80's.

And IT HAS GLOSS. Gloss for days. It looks like a gloss in the tube and on the wand, but applied to my lips with amazing opacity. It's like I applied lipstick and gloss at the same time. The flip was absolutely stunning in daylight, and under florescent lights. It is seriously high impact. With it's texture, at first it was a bit messy to apply. There is a brush applicator instead of a doe foot. It came off on everything, but I did over-apply thinking it was translucent. I'd be light handed with this, and it will bleed into lip lines. It might remove lip liner.

The tube is sturdy, beautiful and you get a lot of product. It feels glass, but not sure. The wand handle is metal finished in chrome. On the top of the wand cap is a big, clear jewel that gives it a designer feel. I like it.

It's worth the money, I'm pleasantly surprised. I will be picking up a few more neutral colors in the line.

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Lipstick - Softsilver Rose

on 5/8/2018 7:17:00 PM

I have been using this color for years...it is something I go back to again and again! I've used the nudes, the mattes, the oranges, etc., but if I need to wear a color I know will be right, this is it. It is pearly, but I don't find it overpowering. I have many high end brands, and also some of the most popular brands, ie. MAC, and I find that Revlon is as good as any and better than many. This gives my face color and lights my face up, but it doesn't look like a big set of lips coming at you. Hope they never discontinue this shade!!

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Lipstick - Softsilver Rose

I was wearing a bright red lipstick (Revlon Fire and Ice) when my dad commented on my makeup. He said "it looked too dark... not right somehow with my face". Now my dad isn't someone who notices makeup, let alone comments on makeup. So I wiped off the lipstick and headed to Meijer for a different shade. After much deliberation, I decided on another Revlon lipstick in Softsilver Rose. I couldn't wait to get home, so I applied it in the car. It was perfect. A medium pearly rose that livened up my face and elicited a typical "okay" from my dad. This shade is very feminine and brightens my complexion. Just for reference, I'm fair with rosy undertones. I don't think this lipstick would look good on someone with real warm undertones, but it's not expensive, so feel free to experiment.

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

on 5/8/2018 2:42:00 PM

This is a very classic red lipstick. The advertising campaigns over the years have been wonderful, and Fire and Ice is such a wonderful name. In the tube this looks quite orange, but on my lips it's more of a warm/neutral medium red. It's definitely bright and needs to be blotted, reapplied, and blotted again. The texture is very creamy and feels great on my lips. Although this might be the red of all reds, I personally prefer Revlon's Cherries in the Snow. It has a pinky undertone and looks better with my rosy skin. That said, Revlon's Fire and Ice is a drug store classic, worth trying at least once, by everyone.

This is odd it looks orange. I have a pale pink skin tone (my Clinique foundation shade is Petal) I ordered this on line having read it was back. Like a lot of reviewers I remember seeing it in the centre pages of Cosmopolitan in the 80s worn by Jerry Hall and I had to buy it. It looks gorgeous on I can only repeat reviewers that say its an orange/blue red hybrid. Its iconic and makes me feel iconic. It picks me up it lifts my face. The only other red lippie I own is Reddy Heddy by Linda Rodin this does feel like an old fashioned lipstick on but the payoff for how it looks and makes one feel. "I'm ready for my close up..."

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Pearl - Apricot Fantasy

on 5/8/2018 1:55:00 AM

I was in search of a peach or coral lipstick and was unsure what shade to get. I'm a light olive with well pigmented lips, so finding a flattering lipstick can be a challenge. I didn't didn't find that shade flattering at all, it's too light to show up on my lips, and the chade is really frosty. Apricot Fantasy is probably best suited for those with really fair skin and pink undertones.
