The most important thing to me when colouring my hair is that my premature greying is covered. I tried all sorts of hair dyes and this one seems to do the job best

Lipstick -Revlon -Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

I really liked this product. It is not as matt as it claims but I felt that the slightly more dewy finish was nice. It is very long wearing and there are an array of nice bright colours. I would buy this again.

Polishes -Revlon -Cherries in the Snow

on 4/28/2018 1:26:00 AM

This polish is very disappointing and I am a fan of Revlon's polishes. This simply does not go on my nails like it's in the bottle. In the bottle it's the perfect blue toned red, a color which I LOVE. However, on my nails, it's a stupid plain old TOMATO RED, a color which I can't stand!! I keep forgetting about this issue and keep trying it once again, thinking it might be in my mind, but nope! I tried looking at it in any lights possible and there it is : TOMATO RED. In the bottle it's what I wanted: Snow White mom's blood on the snow, and I get TOMATO RED. It's not even a nice, neutral, red, it's clearly warm toned! I'm so pissed off. I'm going to only ever use it for toes from now on, I am fine with tomato red on my toes.

Terrible stuff. Mine was clumpy and inconsistent. There were gloops of pink sludge then clearish pink liquid that separated further the 1 time I wore it. Returned it.


Lipstick -Revlon -Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

This is heavily scented but I love the scent. I wanted to find a matte lipstick and ventured into this. But this is hardly matte but it’s still a winner as I love the effect a lot. It dries down to a comfortable velvet finish and even after hours of wear it does not look bad. I realised over time matte does not suit my lips ( lip lines ) and it’s too dramatic . This is so much better and I love the 4 colors I colllected over time especially seduction


Lip Gloss -Revlon -Kiss Lip Balm SPF 20

I have the Berry and Strawberry one and love them. Spf 20 great when you’re on the beach or out and about and very affordable. Very light sheer color on the lips and delicious scent. I love that these are not matt but they are not very moisturizing either I don’t recommend this if you’re looking for good moisturizing lip balm.

Eye Shadow -Revlon -Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow Quad

on 4/26/2018 1:53:00 AM

I bought the Flirtatious quad, which included four great colors for my hazel green eyes. Ultimately, I gave it to my daughter because I don't like having to remove the sparkles from the rest of my face. After trying makeup removers, moisturizers, and astringent, the only thing that worked is tape pressed on my face to grab and pull off those sparkles.


Foundations -Revlon -Colorstay Makeup Normal/Dry Skin SPF 20

I registered JUST to be able to write this review. This reformulation has completely ruined what was an amazing product. It was the only drug store product I liked even better than it's pricier counterparts.

The new formulation dries out, cakes up, settles in lines and causes whiteheads. So incredibly disappointed!

Back on the search for a new foundation. Such a shame!


Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Shine - Lovers Coral

This beautiful lipstick has been sitting untried for a long time now and I decided to pull it out for the spring/summer weather. It is SO gorgeous and very moisturizing! It is sheer so don't be afraid of how it looks in the bullet. I attached a photo so you can see that it's a pretty pinky coral shade. It's affordable, pretty, and moisturizing... What's not to love?

Polishes -Revlon -Matte Suede - Fire Fox

on 4/24/2018 12:21:00 PM

Fire Fox is still easy to find at low prices from eBay and Amazon, so I thought that I'd add my two cents here; it is a pink-tinged poppy red, with a satin [in between matte and creme] finish. A lovely suits-all-skintones, all-ages, all-seasons, all-occasions colour, which has a retro feel to it.

The first coat of the polish applies smoothly and covers the nail completely, but the formula is on the sheer side so it takes three coats to build the opaqueness fully, as it's a curious mix of a satin and a jelly - if you have longer nails, then there will still be a hint of vnl. The formula dries quickly to a smooth finish, I don't mind going to three coats. The shade doesn't stain my nails [I always use a basecoat though], and the polish wears as well as pricier brands like Nails inc, OPI , and Essie, which is a huge plus.


Eyeliner -Revlon -ColorStay Exactify Liquid Liner

on 4/23/2018 9:31:00 PM

foto

I am trying to improve my skills with eye makeup and was excited to try this. I am generally a big fan of Revlon products for their quality and price point. I bought in the mulberry shade, which is a lovely purplish-brown. I thought the little wheel applicator was pretty easy to use. I apply eyeliner directly above my upper lashes and below my lower lashes, not actually on the eyelid rims. This makes a very thin, precise line, which may not be best for me since I am older and a softer look is better. However, I can use a pencil to add some smudginess, so that is doable. When I wore it for a 12 hour shift, however, I noticed that it flaked off a bit in a few spots, which looked weird. I will keep trying this out, but not sure if I would repurchase.

Foundations -Revlon -Youth fx

Oh my, what a disappointment. This one is all hype and marketing. There is certainly no 'blur' effect - it's a plain old heavy BB cream. I found it too heavy, it had a greyish undertone, and it did not prevent the oil coming through either. I had to blot and blot. Not really a quality product. Certainly nothing special about it and no 'pretty' finish. But they got me with the 'blur' hook and now I'm stuck with a bad product that I don't even like using when I'm working from home and only the postman sees me! How to use it up? My discard pile of disappointing foundations for oily faces grows and grows...

Mascara -Revlon -Ultimate All-In-One Mascara

on 4/23/2018 3:16:00 PM

By far the worst mascara I’ve tried. I threw it away after one use. For starters, the brush is incredibly small. There is no way to get all your lashes in one swipe, so you need multiple swipes and naturally some areas get more mascara than others when you do that, creating major clumping. Secondly, the bristles are spaced far from each other which means even if the wand was longer, you’re still going to get spider eyes. Thirdly, this mascara will not hold a curl whatsoever due to how thick and clumpy it is. I ended up using my nails to scrape off the excess so I didn’t look worse for wear at work. Overall, there is nothing redeeming about this mascara.


Lips -Revlon -Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Creme

foto

The plumping claim pulled me in (even though I should know better). While these don't plump any more than your average gloss or liquid lip, I was pleasantly surprised. I picked up Barely Blush (MLBB) & Almond Suede (a brownish pink).
The color is opaque, but with a high shine. They're very glossy, but not at all sticky or heavy.
It has a lot of slip, almost too much (more working with a liquid than a creme), and application can get messy. The slanted plastic applicator isn't useful at all, the tip of the finger works better at evening it out.
There is a slight cooling sensation upon application, but any plumping effect really comes from the glossiness of the product, IMO. These remind me a bit of NYX Butter glosses, only more slick. These feel like they might have moisturizing effect.

There is not much lasting power though; with all that slip, it kind of slips right off. That doesn't bother me too much as I'm a frequent applier of any lip product I happen to be wearing.

Foundations -Revlon -Colorstay 2-in-1 Compact Makeup & Concealer

I have had a lot of issues finding my "perfect" foundation since going through menopause. I honestly can't even count how many products I've tried. I used to have oily to combo skin and used the Colorstay for that skin type for years and loved it. It just no longer works for me and I didn't like the normal to dry version. So fast forward to having tried a ton of products, except this one...lol, and then my kid comes home from college and said "Mom, try this". I did and now am thankful. Lol. We have the same skin tone and color. She had gotten this in Ivory and I tried it and loved it! It's not heavy but covers the redness that has developed with menopause and the concealer is excellent. I love that it's buildable and doesn't settle into fine lines. I'm not sure about how long it lasts but it did pass the "nap test" as I fell asleep wearing it and it still looked good when I woke up. I've also been using Revlon bb cream and this works really well with it
