Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipstick in Violet Frenzy

I am a purple lipstick connoisseur and this is always in my bag. It's not the greatest in terms of wow factor or impact, but it leaves your lips with a beautiful cool Violet stain. Can't beat the price.

Too dark. Not brown enough. Almost black.


Primer/ Corrector -Revlon - YOUTH FX™ FILL + BLUR Primer for Forehead

I normally wear Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer which I wear religiously but I was at the store killing time and I saw this specifically for foreheads and I had to try. My forehead wrinkles are ridiculous and I am on the verge of Botox and will try anything. I love this forehead primer. It's very different the packaging comes with a paint brush applicator that is also the cap I was a tad concerned it was too thick but after I let I dry I was completely amazed it actually blurred my lines. I will wear this forehead primer even on lazy days with no makeup it makes a difference and for me it's fabulous.

Brows -Revlon - Colorstay Eyebrow Liner Waterproof

Really love this pencil,I have it in dark brown. It goes on nicely and looks natural and last til I wanna remove it. The only bad thing I can say about it is the spoolie brush on other end,it seems rough and pointy compared to other pencils I've used. I took one lippie off for that but the product itself is a 5!


Pressed Powders -Revlon - PhotoReady Translucent Finisher

on 9/15/2017 7:45:00 PM

This was the first finishing powder I ever bought, back when I was just getting into makeup. It's OK. I use it to set my foundation. The powder's translucent and there are tiny sparkles in it, but -- in my experience -- the sparkles don't actually show up on the skin. It's not a bad powder, nor is it an outstandingly good one. I'll finish using this up, but I won't buy another once I'm done, since it's so expensive for a drugstore powder. Also, it came with a little brush which is completely useless, and which I threw away.


Lipstick -Revlon - Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

I agree with the other reviews, these lipsticks texture are not consistent and the lighter shades are not as good as the darker shades. I own a pink shade (flirtation) and a true red shade (Love) and love was so much better than flirtation. Flirtation is a pretty pink shade with warm undertone, but on lips it comes uneven and saturates into the lip lines and the texture is definitely not smooth. It also comes off right away if not dried properly but this is more apparent with flirtation as well. If I leave the lighter shade to dry it will dry my lips while the deeper shade stays creamy and sets evenly. I wouldn't recommend the lighter shades in this collection but the shades deeper than that should be worth it.

Lipstick -Revlon - Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

I have bought three of these...two darker shades and a lighter shade....I really liked the darker shades (romance, a deep red and kisses, a neutral pink) and I really liked both of them. I bought a third one and decided to try something lighter (embrace, a light pink). The color is very pretty and soft but the formula feels so much drier and no matter what I do it looks a little flaky once on....so I would repurchase the darker colors but not the lighter ones.....


Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Stain Balm - Crush

Ugh. This product is so good. I bought it due to the hype on here and caught it on sale at 40% off. At first the color of the tube scared me, it looks sooo dark. But on the lips it starts off as a light berry / pink which can be built up to a darker berry. Its so flattering! It last ages and stains the lips. I agree that this is a universal product and can definitely ditch other products for a while! Love love love!

Lipstick -Revlon - Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

I currently have 2 of these (embrace and seduction) and as someone who doesn't wear much lipstick and doesnt mind reapplying if I need to, I think they're great! The wear on them is okay, if you don't lick your lips or if you're wearing it casually and not eating with it on. I find they wear very light, they don't feel sticky or dry or heavy, but they don't feel like they dry down completely. I find they feel like you're wearing more of a gloss and they look more like combination matte/satin finish. I don't find they last long, maybe an hour without touchups and 1-2 hours for reapplying.


Eyeliner -Revlon - Colorstay Eyeliner

A staple in my makeup stash, been using this as my main eyeliner since 2007. I like to try out new eye products but always come back to this eyeliner because it's so reliable, is waterproof and just doesn't budge on my eyes. I like to use it to tight line. It's amazing! It lasts a loooong time. Packaging is a bit boring, but I'd take boring and reliable over pretty but less reliable.

Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst balm stain ( Rendezvous)

on 9/10/2017 8:35:00 PM

I love this product. I have read other reviewers commenting of the instabiliiy of the colour in that it changes. They were reviewing 'Kissable' Balm stain. I am in Australia and over here it is either maketed as a different name ' ColorBurst' or it is a slightly differently formulated product becuase the shade Rendevous does not change colour after applying.

I find it to be a beautiful soft orangey coral. It feels lovely on mylips and lasts a long time.

However it is a little sheer and the colour not very noticeable.
BUT... l found that by applying Diors Universal (Clear) lip liner over the entire lip as a base first, it acts like a 'whitish' primer and the balm stain colour applied over it is boosted and looks very noticable and absolutely amazing!! :)

Top/Base Coats -Revlon - Multi-care base and top

on 9/10/2017 7:34:00 PM

I have been into having a fresh, shiny, and salon-looking professional manicure ever since high school. This being said, this both top and base coat I have found keeps my manicure on for 7 days ( a week) without having any fading, or chipping. I'm interested in having seperate base and top coats now, but I will always make sure to have this top and base coat on and whenever I want something quick, or if I'm ever on vacation and want to pack lightly.

Liquid -Revlon - Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily

on 9/10/2017 5:47:00 AM

Lipsticks and foundation. My two addictions. I've used so many over the years and love both.

I've been on the hunt for a foundation that looks good and wears great forever. I've tried so many. Smashbox. IT Cosmetics. Maybelline. Cover Girl. Milani. Lancome. I recently tried the fave ELDW and the shade was too light. Its an HG for many. But while the shade was wrong, I just wasn't impressed with it. Sure it lasted like a champ but it's too full coverage, even for me. And I didn't have $42 laying around to try ELDWL, so I headed back to the drugstore to revisit Revlon Colorstay, as I had made another attempt with it last year when they reformulated.

Being nearly 50, I decided to try the Dry skin formula. I don't think I even finished the bottle. This time I tried the Combination/Oily skin version, and I'm in love. In Smashbox I'm a 2.1. In IT Cosmetics Light is the best for me. In Maybelline and CG both, Classic Ivory is the best. But this one took a few tries to get right. Today I held up the Revlon next to a bottle of Maybelline Better Skin in Classic Ivory and found Revlons Fresh Beige to be the closest match. I was surprised how pink the Maybelline was compared to this. I had tried Revlon in Nude but it was a smidge too light for me, to my surprise. This speaks to how good the shade range is for Revlon. I believe they have 22 shades in this formula, so there's one for everyone.

No primer for me with this one. I'm not a huge primer fan anyway as I think a foundation should work on its own. I tried a primer with this, but found it made it feel heavier and cakey and didn't control oil. It also settled into my lines visibly, where without the primer I find there's minimal settling. A damp blender also works best for me with this. Two pumps give me a light-full coverage base. If I really blend it well I can use one pump for lighter coverage.

This foundation lasts my entire work day. I only start feeling greasy around nine hours with it on, and that's nothing to complain about. For a contrast, I wore Maybelline Better Skin to run errands today and three hours in I couldn't wait to get it off my face, and it had started to fail and wear off along with some serious wrinkles becoming an issue. Colorstay does not do this to me. Settling is minimal. A thin pat of this foundation on my lips also gives my lipsticks some performance power as well. We just got through a week of 100°+ temps in LA and this didn't sweat off. On top of those temps my a/c went out and it never moved inside my insanely hot house. I was a mess, but I was a fabulous mess.

Now that I've found the shade that works for me I don't see me straying from this again. It worked for me in my 20s and it's still working for me at 49. I'll gladly hand over my $15 for this.

Liquid -Revlon - Colorstay 24hrs Makeup SPF 20 Normal/Dry Skin (US pump bottle)

foto

I hate to be so crude but this foundation is so not worth its money. First for a product for explicitly made for dry skin it is way to powdery. If I have to mix a foundation with a big load of moisturiser to keep it from cracking then we do have a problem. Second: it needs a lot of powder to make it stay in place. It sticks to my blush brush or beauty blender. Just annoying. Third: it aims for a 24 h stay - it just won't. Not if you have to blow your nose, have someone slightly touch you or have a butterfly kiss your cheek.


Liquid -Revlon - Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup

I'm so sad this has been discontinued! This has been a great foundation for my fair/light dry skin. I use Bare Buff and it is the perfect shade. Not too heavy, provides decent coverage and is very buildable. I think I'm going to take my last bottle to Sephora to see if they can match the shade and formula with something else. How come every time I find a foundation that actually matches my skin tone and really works well it gets discontinued? Boo :(
