Pressed Powders -Revlon - PhotoReady Translucent Finisher

I typically use HE and Prestige makeup, but I ran out of my It Cosmetics bye bye pore setting powder and needing something I can grab at the local grocery store. (Busy mom problems) So I grabbed the only DS translucent powder that was in a compact. (Loose powder too messy for me) Revlon was the only one available in Translucent. I'm actually pleased with this DS setting powder. Only issues I have is the packaging is hard to open (chipped a nail) and the shimmer in the powder. Shimmer isn't overwhelming, but if you have fine lines I bet it would accentuate the lines. Sets my MAC, Clinique, and CoverFx foundation well. I apply with a large fluffy brush, (throw out the useless brush it came with). Wears well, stays on all day for me. Did not cause me to break out. I plan on finishing this pan up, as it isn't bad. Just ordered my usual setting powder so awaiting delivery. If I had to purchase again, I would if I run out of the usual HG powder.


Lipstick -Revlon - Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

I only have this in one shade (Kisses), but I have really come to love this, mainly due to the longevity and light feel. It did take me a few attempts to get the application right though. I had the same problems a lot of other people were having - Uneven, streaking, too liquidy feeling etc.

The following application routine worked for me with this shade. I have no idea if it'd work with another shade for me or anyone else, as we all have our own desired goals when wearing make-up.

I apply the product as best as I can to my lips and don't worry too much about streaking/unevenness etc. Then I rub my lips together which blends it all in and distributes everything a lot more evenly. If I need a little more at this point, I apply and repeat. Then I lightly blot. Not a full lip blot. Just the quick blot where you smack the outer edges of your top and bottom lip on a tissue. Then I rub my lips together one last time and voila. I'm happy.

This color lasts on my lips forever, even after drinking hot coffee. It doesn't dry them out at all either. I love it. The effort to make it look natural is worth it for me considering how long the color lasts and that I don't have to reapply right after drinking/eating.

Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Adore

on 9/28/2017 2:32:00 AM

foto

I went out on the mission to purchase Just Bitten Crush on sale following positive feedback and ended up buying Adore also and must say I am really happy with Adore, happened to read all the reviews on Adore after the fact and it seems as though the final result is dependent on the acidity of your skin as Adore is not an orange/red/brown on me (fair skin/blonde/blue eyes) but rather a classical medium blush or light-ish primary red. I have been looking for a colour like this for some time, can be layered for deeper effect or single application for a naturally flushed everyday look. The colour lasts all day with slight pink undertones after full day of wear (so slight it's nothing to write home about) I have used Romantic before which was a little orangy red,In the end I ended up giving Crush to my co- worker as it was a little too plummy/sparkly purple for me.. Happy with my purchase.

Moisturizers -Revlon - Eterna 27

on 9/27/2017 2:08:00 PM

foto

About 40 years ago, I was dating a young Frenchman. His very elegant mother "of a certain age" always wanted him to buy her Eterna 27 in America and ship it to her because it was so much less expensive here. Now I am a woman of a certain age (60), and i have discovered just why she loved it! I use it only as a night cream after tretinoin cream. It is rather heavy, but that is what I need overnight. I wake up with skin that is glowing and smooth, rather than pasty and dry as it used to be. People are telling me that I look decades younger than I am, truly! I hope they never stop making this product.

Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Matte - Really Red

on 9/27/2017 12:20:00 AM

I like it but it was kind of drying. I'm doing this thing where I'm trying all the vintage reds. I agree it kind of has a brown base and I'm a summer which means I have a blue undertone but it still works. It did transfer but I think most red lipsticks do.

Not really thick


Polishes -Revlon - Colorstay - Rain Forest

on 9/24/2017 4:24:00 PM

Rain Forest is an emerald green polish, loaded with gold flakies (looks like glitter, but much easier to remove). It is a beautiful polish and so rich and satisfying for this time of year.

It was easy to apply. I used 2 coats, which at first glance gave me perfect opacity (the following day I noticed a couple of thinner patches, which were only visible in certain light, so no big drama). Removal was easy and this polish surprisingly didn't stain my nails.

I have seen this polish being sold at £1 shops, so I think it's an amazing value for money.

Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous in Pink Cognito

on 9/24/2017 1:50:00 AM

This was a nice pink nude which had more of a lipgloss consistency than lipstick, which i didn't mind, however this meant it didn't last very long. It felt comfortable on my lips and i liked the shine/glossiness. Won't repurchase as not cruelty free.

Liquid -Revlon - ColorStay Makeup (24 hour formula)

foto

Since when is this a dupe for Double Wear?!
They have absolutely nothing in common. This foundation does not have enough power to stay on the skin without making it greasy within the first 5 hours. It`s nothing more than a product that only sits on your face, covering certain spots and giving you that "I am wearing a ton of foundation today" kind of look. If you`re looking for an efficient and cheap foundation, this is not it. There are other Drugstore brand which do a much better job.
Revlon is just an overrated brand with easily replaceable products and this foundation is a perfect example.


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

on 9/22/2017 11:09:00 PM

Color: orange-red (not a brick red or a pure red-but a vintage, classic lipstick that blends orange and red tones). This color has been around for decades and is an iconic Revlon shade.
Finish: cream finish-moisturizing, shiny but not as shiny as a gloss, very soft on the lips.
Advertising history-Fire and Ice was marketed as a lipstick for understated sexiness.
Undertones-warm undertones that veer between orange and red.
Highly recommended for a jolt of color to your face. This screams as loud on some complexions, but totally compliments my medium NC30-NC35 skin tone. My skin tone varies by season and sun exposure-I have a medium beige skin tone.

Lipstick -Revlon - Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

I saw these on sale in Shopper's Drug Mart, so decided to pick up a couple. I got the shades Romance and Devotion.

I didn't except much from these. But I was surprised on how good they are.

Romance is a bright red with a hint of blue. Very beautiful. You will turn heads with this shade. I received many compliments myself. It also lasts forever. It weathered through a greasy chicken teriyaki lunch and an afternoon pizza snack. I came home to it still looking pretty, with minimal fading around the inside corners of my lip.

Devotion is a medium pink shade, going on the cool side. Quite nice for a neutral lip. This one survived a date day with my boyfriend. Although, it faded after dinner, after we had crispy chili beef and honey chicken.

I would definitely say the dark and intense shades have better longevity than the light ones.

This is not completely matte. More of a semi-matte with a hint of a satin finish. Which I honestly like, because it is less drying. My lips don't end up flaking even after a long day of wear. Unlike true mattes, which dry me out like crazy and make my lips would be shedding flakes left and right.


P.S.
I've been seeing a lot of people struggle with the application and texture.

My advice is, apply in THIN, EVEN LAYERS. Build up slowly using thin layers, waiting around 40 seconds in between coats.

Never ever apply thick layers. A thick layer will cause a goopy mess that will never dry. The end result will be an ugly texture that balls up and stick to itself, because the product underneath didn't have a chance to set or dry.

So wipe the excess on the back of your hand, or on the side of the tube. And apply in thin layers. It needs a little patience to wait in between layers. But, this isn't lipgloss and should not be applied like a lipgloss. Its a liquid lipstick. You can't really rush it, if you want a good end result.

Foundations -Revlon - Age Defying Firming + Lifting Makeup SPF 15

If you are looking for affordable coverage, this might work for you. For me the finish was not dewy enough and does not feel light enough. Also the colour match was an issue as I am a yellow Asian.


Hair Color -Revlon - Frost

on 9/21/2017 6:53:00 PM

I've tried this color about a year an half ago. As many others I was sick of paying 500$+ for highlights at a high end salon without getting exactly what I wanted. I thought I could do it myself. So wrong!
I'm used to foil highlights, but I always wanted to have a bit less of them so I've tried to do balayage highlights by myself using Frost and Glow.
1 - the cap will never give a natural or high end looking highlights so I tossed it away directly;
2 - balayage (free painted) highlights will always be thicker than foil ones (I haven't thought of that). Coming from the roots with the darker base they look very old school;
3 - at the hairdresser I never see my new color before it's toned, Revlon Frost and Glow came to me as a shock. It wasn't bad, just slightly brassy, way better than any of my hair coloring experiments from 15 years ago, but still...
4 - I used honey shade, it lighten my natural medium brown hair only up to two shades, but it didn't damage it;
5 - it is serious pain in the a** to do a free painted highlights by yourself, the result will never look professional. It will look cute on young girls, but not on people who are older than 25.

I think it's an awesome stuff for a young girl who has tight budget but wants to have some cute highlighted strands in her hair. Fun to do with a girlfriend. I wish there was something like this the time when I was 15-20.
But now for me it's a pass. I will never again attempt to highlight my hair at home.
