Lip Gloss -Revlon -Colorstay Moisture Stain

on 11/19/2017 6:11:00 PM


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.

Liquid -Revlon -Colourstay in Buff

on 11/19/2017 7:27:00 AM


I bought this in the Buff/Chamois shade in the normal/dry formula (I don't know if there's an oily/combination skin version) and have been using it for about 6 weeks. So far, I've been impressed, especially for its modest price. Goes on easily, gives a medium coverage, stays all day. It compares quite favorably to the more expensive brands I've used -- including Nars light 2 Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc (which gives lighter coverage) and Armani cream foundation (which goes one slightly more smoothly, but develops a yellow undertone over time). It also comes in a container with a pump I didn't have to pay extra for (like Nars) or couldn't get period (Armani cream foundation).

For years I've been using much more expensive brands -- YSL, Lancome, Armani -- but recently I've found that the less expensive, so-called drugstore brands have upped their game. Now my go-to brands are Catrice for lipsticks (fabulous!), mascara and eyeliner and this Revlon product for foundation.

Foundations -Revlon -Youth fx

on 11/17/2017 11:33:00 AM


Bought this on sale in the drugstore for $4.99 was looking for an every day foundation. Didn't realize that its for an older age bracket, it's only ok, I find it cakes a lot and it doesn't apply easily not as lightweight as I was hoping for.
Not too annoyed considering the price I paid for it but will probably end up tossing it as its not the best for me.

Polishes -Revlon -Romantique

on 11/16/2017 9:05:00 PM

I have been a fan of Revlon nail polish for decades. The last one I got, Icy Mauve, was perfect. But this one, Romantique, is thin and streaky like the crummy brands that I stopped buying long ago. What on earth happened in their formula? Also, even if it went on nicely, it's such an invisible colour that it's basically like putting nothing on the nails. It looks lovely in the bottle, but bland on the nails. I doubt I will ever use it again!

Lipstick -Revlon -Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

on 11/15/2017 5:26:00 PM


I wanted to get this product as something fun, since I don't have a lot of fun colors in my makeup collection and the color seemed promising. I got the dark blue.

When I first put it on it was very sheer. It took about three times of putting a layer on, waiting for it to dry, and then putting another layer on to get close to full coverage. It doesn't come out as matte, but instead of more like a gloss. Along with this, the drying time is not optimal, for it takes about 5-8 minutes for it to dry.

On the plus side: Once full coverage is achieved, the product looks very nice, stylish, and more like an upper end product.

I think this product is good to have in your makeup collection as a fun item for a party or hanging out with friends, but I doubt it is usable as a full-day, every-day lipstick.

Concealers -Revlon -Colorstay Concealer

on 11/15/2017 3:52:00 PM


I don't really get the hate about this product. I have it in shade 01 Fair, which is just the perfect shade for my winter skin. I don't use foundation though, so I can only tell how it works on the bare skin (and I don't use it to highlight either so I always try to look for a concelaer that matches my exactly my skin tone). On my combo to oily skin it does not crease at all, even in the under-eye area. I'd say the coverage is not light at all, more like medium, so it covers the blemishes good enough... and definitely does not cause any breakouts. I blend it with just my fingers - and it blends like a dream! I have not expected it to be so good, would even compare it to much more expensive Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer!

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous in Wine with Everything

on 11/14/2017 11:03:00 AM


I've owned both the pearl and creme version of this color. I like both. I wouldn't call this shade wine however. It's much warmer than a typical wine. So when I want to wear warmer toned blush or eyeshadow or even clothing that is warm toned, this fits the bill. It's not too dark or bright either. I don't have any other lipsticks that are close to this color. I feel very comfortable wearing it. I would also say it's more of a medium shade but its still a bit adventurous for me since I've always been more of a nude lip girl.

I've worn these Super Lustrous lipsticks forever. I love a lot of my more expensive lipsticks but the Super Lustrous formula is a good basic formula. Not too heavy or waxy. No matter what color you are going for you can almost always find a shade close to what you're looking for.

Highly recommend!

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous - Rich Girl Red

on 11/14/2017 7:47:00 AM


I have had this for 6 months, and actually bought a backup! Its a nice, sheerish red. When it wears off or if you blot or apply lightly....unlike 90% of the reds out there....this leaves a faded RED stain. Hard to explain but...its like if you water down red punch or kool aid, you don't get get faded red. This is what this lipstick is like. It leans warmish but its not really coral at all. It is very easy to apply since the formula is sheer.

The formula is also very, very moisturizing and comfortable to wear. It rivals Dior Addict IMO for moisturizing and comfortable wear.

When it wears off, you will not look like a clown. It wears very evenly.

Obviously it is not full coverage or long wearing, but I doubt anyone reading a review for a sheer lipstick had wanted that....I hope.

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Pearl - Wild Orchid 457

on 11/12/2017 11:57:00 PM


I just bought this lipstick, and I already love it. I normally don't go for bold lipsticks; I find them to be too overpowering, but this one is just beautiful. It's a violet-pink shade that looks great against very pale skin. The lasting power is quite decent as well. If you normally shy away from bolder shades of lipstick, try this one; its a unique yet wearable color!

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous - Rich Girl Red

on 11/12/2017 9:54:00 PM


I normally don't like red lipsticks; they're overpowering and tend to make me look like a clown. This one is quite wearable though. It's a true red color and almost feels like a lip balm going on. It's more pigmented than a lip balm however, and leaves a gorgeous glossy finish. For how moisturizing it is, the staying power is quite good.

Hair Color -Revlon -Colorsilk in Brown Black

on 11/12/2017 5:11:00 PM


I dyed my medium ashy brown hair dark brown for about three years, and this ended up being the best dye I used, hands-down.

It's a bit dark for a few washes, then it calms down to a nice deep rich color that didn't fade on me unless I was in the sun too much. You can't beat the price, either. If I ever went back to the color this is the dye I would use.

All the colorsilks I've used have worked just as well as the more expensive stuff, and I've been dyeing my hair for about 30 years.

Lipstick -Revlon -Paradise Pink

on 11/12/2017 8:01:00 AM


This warm bright red-coral with a slight pink undertone is a dupe for the long-discontinued Matte shade called 005 Strawberry Suede, once raved about by Lisa Eldridge.
If you love Strawberry Suede pick this one up. The formula and color are exactly the same.
A perfect Summer shade that I find suits porcelain to fair/light skins best.
I have to say I preferred the old matte black tubes because they are easier to differentiate from the regular creme Super Lustrous formulas, but that's a small issue.

Blush -Revlon -Powder Blush - Classy Coral

on 11/10/2017 9:42:00 PM


For anyone else who has 500 blushes in a drawer somewhere that either made you look clown-like, flu-like, chemically-impaired, or the victim of poor bathroom lighting, this might be your new BFF. Or at least a benevolent neighbor you that wave to everyday.

If you are like me and, issues (rosacea, bumpy skin, undertone confusion), blush can be such a challenge that you swear it off! I feels ya. This puppy is what broke me out of a three year color hunger strike. Not sure why, but I'm pretty sure it involved a coupon and some Extrabucks at f-ing CVS (Or as I like to call them, The Seat of Most Evil)

Why it might work for you: It's very subtle (pigment junkies may be disappointed), blends smoothly, and produces very natural-looking flush-like effect. Which is great for disguising iffy texture and mature skin. Also great for beginners because it's easy to control and you don't have to be very precise in your placement. Also, the shade would probably work on ANY skin undertone--warm, cool, neutral, olive or a dissonant mixture, like mine. And, it is weirdly rosacea-friendly--doesn't make the redness appear worse, which most shades definitely do.

Top/Base Coats -Revlon -Matte Top Coat

on 11/9/2017 6:48:00 PM


This matte top coat is from Revlon’s Transforming Effects line. I had really good success with this matte top coat. It applied evenly with no streaking. It didn’t leave behind any white spots. With one coat it was perfectly matte.

I applied this over my SH Insta Dri top coat as i wanted the benefit of a QDTC. That combo make the top coat and polish dry quickly. I got good wear without any chipping. Removal was easy.

The formula is on the liquid side but I got no running or pooling upon application. It may have seemed a little liquid to me because I am used to using a QDTC which tends to be a little thicker than standard top coats.

Packaging is the standard Revlon polish bottle. The brush is a pretty standard polish brush.

I paid $3.97 plus tax for this bottle. I would repurchase though I doubt I will ever have to as I am generally not a fan of the matte polish look.

Eyeliner -Revlon -ColorStay Liquid Liner


I mostly love this product: (1) the precise application with the stiff brush at the end and (2) the color going on thick (I don't have to reapply layers to get the black I want). (3) I can use it for a thin line or a thick line. Also, (4) this product does not "sting" my eyelids like some eyeliners have done in the past.

My reasons for not fully loving this product are: (1) After some uses, the brush applicator hairs become loose - in other words, I have to use tweezers to pull out some stray hairs peeking out at the top of the brush, and that's slightly annoying but would be more annoying if I didn't notice them and proceeded to apply the liner with these stray hairs dragging very tiny lines of black around my main black line that I'm trying to apply.
