Eyeliner -REVLON -ColorStay Exactify Liquid Liner

Why, oh why did I get sucked into buying this. Sure it looks great swatched on my hand, lovely straight precise line of colour. But, my eyelid isn’t straight and I just can’t get it to work on me. On the rare occasion I can get it to work around the angles of my eye, it looks , well ok, but more often than not it looks like I used my non dominant hand to apply. A real fail for me,I’m afraid!

Damaged and Broke my hair! DO NOT USE!
Revlon does not care. Apologized and offered me samples to compensate my hair breaking and being completely damaged.


Lips -REVLON -Colorburst Matte Balm (All Shades)

I'm pretty happy with this balm. It's a good buy for only about $8. It doesn't dry out my lips yet somehow lasts for hours, and it's not as tricky to use as liquid lipstick. Only gripe I have is it contains peppermint oil - that's a skin irritant I'd rather avoid. And the Fiery color, which is supposed to be a brick red, goes purple on me. Not many color choices either. Again though, a good buy for the price.

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

foto

I first used this foundation maybe 10 years ago? Back then it had no pump, was super thick and did not help at all with my crazy oily skin. The only thing that worked was Estee Lauder Double Wear and it's been one of my favourites ever since. My skin has become a lot more normal since then and my nose is the only part that really gets shiny, but foundation still will fade away easily so I still need long wearing formulas.

I only recently found out about the repackaging and reformulation so I gave it another try and I'm really happy I did! I have a neutral undertone and I was able to find a perfect shade match that didn't oxidize (150 Buff), the coverage is medium and natural looking, it doesn't break me out, and of course a pump is always an improvement. Without powdering I can go about 6-8 hours without having a shiny nose, and about 10-12 if I set. I'd say it only lasts an hour or two less than ELDW and its less than half the price so if you're looking for a cheaper alternative with a less heavy finish you should give this a try.

Lipstick -REVLON -Super Lustrous in Bare Affair

on 8/2/2018 10:59:00 AM

I am currently into nudes and in the tube/ swatched it looks like a nice nude with some pinks. However on my lips, I look like I am ill or into the hippie 60s look as it is too light for my nc30 skin tone . Looks so weird and unflattering .

Lipstick -REVLON -Super Lustrous Lipstick in Champagne on Ice

on 8/2/2018 8:37:00 AM

foto

I bought this with high hopes but was left disappointed . I expected this to be as good as the sandalwood beige in cream finish, but this is very different in terms of texture . I liked the Color as I had a wet n wild version of this ( which was way better ), but my issue was the texture. It lacks the “body” hence it becomes a thin flimsy layer of coloured oil on my lips. It leaves my lips looking wrinkled accentuating lines ( maybe due to the Color too ) and it’s a tad patchy. I tried it under lip balm, plain, over lip balm .. still does not work . The fortunate thing is that this makes a Super fantastic lipstick topper . I added this to my too dark browns, too bright reds/pinks, too drying lipsticks and they all came to life. It tones down the colors to be a more natural looking my lips but better Color. . The thin texture makes it perfect as a topper , giving it a beautiful subtle shine and creaminess. I find that this is a toned down version of sandalwood beige and really suits warm toned skin. Not buying this finish of lipsticks any more

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

I've used this foundation for years, now I think that I will use it no longer.

First, the positives - the coverage is great, the finish is great, and it lasts a reasonably long time (given a good setting powder). This is also one of the best shade matches that I own.

However, I can't use this product any longer for one big reason:
It breaks me the FUCK out. I used this when my skin was at my worst and I cringe at the thought that I did that! But recently, my skin has gotten better and I decided to give this foundation the benefit of the doubt and thought 'Hey - maybe it was just my skin being awful as per usual (because it was just awful in general at the time); let's see if it will break me out now, given that I no longer am really prone to breakouts as much'. NOPE. Noooope. The next day I woke up with a two BULGING pimples on the side of my face, and one in the making on my forehead.
It's also important to note that this foundation also contains ingredients that apparently are breakout-prone - so even if we don't have the same skin types, it's important to keep that in mind, and be cautious.

If I didn't breakout due to this foundation, I'd never buy another foundation again!

Lips -REVLON -Kiss Cushion Lip Tint

on 8/1/2018 3:35:00 PM

I got pulled into the gimmick -- lip cushion tint and all. It's a cute one, though, and I'm not disappointed. That said, I don't see myself buying more of these.

First off I got Fancy Rose, kind of a medium pinky brown hue. You remove the cap and twist the top to get product. For the first use you need to twist it a lot to get it coming out. It almost becomes that game. Will two more, no, three more twists do it? Is it seeping out yet? That's nothing unusual, though. It's just that starting point where one wonders exactly how long it will take for product to start coming out without it overflowing like wax lava.

The color, like I noted earlier, is a pinky brown. It's very MLBB (my lips, but better) on me. It looks natural, especially if I just pat a bit on. It looks satiny and a bit powdery, and feels about the same. Add a bit more for a more opaque lipstick look, but I prefer just dabbing it on for a pretty, slightly more polished natural look.

The texture is decent, but it's not super moisturizing. For some it will be slightly drying. (It's not uncomfortable on me, but it's not exactly soothing.) It has a slight flavor, a tiny bit sweet, and a pinch artificial in a cosmetic sort of way. It also has a faint sweet/lipsticky scent. It's kind of unusual for Revlon. I'd almost expect the scent to be from Maybelline, were Maybelline to drastically tone down their 2017-18-era lipstick fragrances.

Staying power is okay. Not great, but not awful. Since Fancy Rose is a natural-looking color it doesn't matter, as it's easy to dab a bit more on and it looks quite pretty.

Is it a homerun for me? No, not really. The packaging is cute (though I can't help but wonder if the tiny cap might eventually stop sticking securely, but so far it seems pretty good), the color and texture is pretty, but it's not anything to write home about (at least not for me). It was a fun impulse purchase, and I'll enjoy it, but it's in no danger of surpassing my current favorites in terms of performance and comfort -- Lipstick Queen, Burt's Bees, ColourPop or Urban Decay.

Blush -REVLON -Photoready Cream Blush

foto

I can't seem to find it anywhere anymore, is it discontinued? But this is a fantastic blusher! Finger is the best tool for this. The cream-to-powder texture makes it incredibly easy to blend- yes, the minute it touches your cheek, it becomes quite airy and powdery, but in a good way, not heavy at all. The shade Flushed is a hot pink that dramatically brightens my NC20-25 skin with a strong yellow under tone.

Lipstick -REVLON -Super Lustrous Lipstick (Pearl) - Blushed

I feel as though I have finally found the lipstick shade and formula that I have been looking for for many many years. It is very flattering for this girl who likes a low profile makeup and look. It is slightly darker than my natural lip color and pearlescent and satiny. Extremely flattering for my light to medium complexion.

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

on 7/30/2018 11:06:00 PM

I really, really wanted to like this primer. Like other reviews I first heard about it from Thataylaa on YouTube who loves it. However, now that she has dry skin I am wondering if that’s why she likes it.

I have very oily skin and I tried using this for a good two weeks with different foundations. It definitely blurs pores; HOWEVER, within a few hours I noticed my foundations would start to crease in my smile lines which never has happened to me before. I also started getting more oily and my pores were super obvious. I blamed the foundations and the extreme heat here in South Florida. I just figured it’s summer and my skin is level 10 oily. But one day I forgot to use this primer and my foundation looked about ten times better. I started to experiment by doing half my face, not use any, use a different primer and realized the culprit of my oily large pores and unflattering makeup was - THIS PRIMER!

If you have dry skin you may love this product because I honestly do see a reduction in my pores after initial application. But based on my personal experience, 1 lippie it is!


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

I use shade 110 Ivory which is a very porcelain pale, neutral colour. It's a light, easy to blend, buildable liquid, good coverage and sets quite quickly with a matte finish. I don't usually need any concealer or powder when I use this foundation. It has really good staying power and lasts all day. The only negative feature is that it can look chalky and emphasize any areas of dry skin or fine lines unless my skin is really well hydrated. It doesn't totally cover my freckles but it does fade them so they aren't noticeable unless you're looking closely.

Nail Tools -REVLON -Cuticle Trimmer

on 7/28/2018 3:44:00 AM

I use this cuticle scraper together with Mavala cuticle remover. I brush on the remover, wait three minutes, and gently scrape away excess cuticle with the Cuticle Trimmer. I wet my nails, brush with a nail brush to remove the dislodged cuticle, dry, and I'm soon ready to give myself a manicure. I do this every two or three weeks, or whenever I see excess cuticle.

Eye Shadow -REVLON -PhotoReady Primer, Shadow and Sparkle

on 7/27/2018 5:51:00 PM

I like these, but I don't really use them as Revlon intends. I have 505 Impressionist and 501 Metropolitan. First off, the little glitter squares in the bottom right are awful and only stay in place when applied over a cream shadow or primer before it's dry - they won't stick on the shimmer powder "primer" shades for sure, and end up colonising my cheeks, chin, and shirt soon afterwards. The "primer" is the oblong shadow at the bottom, it is a powder intended as a base shade and doesn't act like a primer at all. It's very shimmery and as I don't suit such shiny shadow all over, I never use it anyway. The fallout is also pretty bad, instead I use cream shadows or eyeliners as inner corner/loer lid highlight so they don't get under my contact lenses. Then there are three shadows as you can see in the picture, the intended lid. crease, and browbone shades.

None of the shadows in the palettes I have are matte, but they do vary in their level of shimmer. The lid shades are more satiny than shimmery, so I get the most use out of them. 501's lid shade is a deep cocoa brown with a satin finish, it doesn't go on super pigmented and blends nicely on the skin. It's great as an accent shade or over the top of brown liquid or gel eyeliners, softens harsh edges without looking dull. Same for 505's crease shade except that is cooler and greyer in tone, a bit more neutral, and 505's lid shade is a pretty neutral cafe-au-lait shade that does actually look nice used on the lid as intended, has just enough shimmer to brighten the appearance of tired eyes in the morning. I got these on offer from Boots so they weren't that expensive, although once they're gone I'd only buy the Impressionist one again since that's the one I use the most. Just a bit of a shame how much of a mixed bag these are.
