Foundations -Revlon -Youth fx

I can't help being intrigued when people reviewing a product either love or hate it. This seemed to have either 5 stars or 1 star. I was thinking it might be just the thing for my aging skin even if it didn't work for younger skin.

Well, it's so awful that literally any foundation is better. Bare skin is better. This emphasized every line and wrinkle. The ivory shade was fine, but after applying, no amount of blending would make it look good.

I don't know who this product is designed for. If it's not for a woman with lines and wrinkles, then what's the "fill and blur" claim all about? I used to have a product that blurred wrinkles at least slightly, but it's been discontinued. This doesn't do anything at all except make me look much worse. It's unuseable.

I can see that I might love it if I was still unlined and unwrinkled. But it's being marketed toward women who could use this effect, and it was simply throwing my money away, "hoping" it would help a little. Nope.

Polishes -Revlon -ColorStay Gel Envy in Showtime

on 10/30/2017 1:16:00 AM

GORGEOUS!!! Revlon's Showtime is a vivid and glowy metallic royal purple that's loaded with tons of blue and purple shimmer-flecks. It looks phenomenal and it's basically what I had hoped OPI's Turn On The Northern Lights would be.

Good formula too. Opaque in two coats, wears well. Application always a tiny bit gloopy, but the end results are so awesome-looking that I can forgive that. It's still a 5-star polish!

Love! I'd definitely buy it again!

I LOVE this foundation. As a 39 year old, I was looking for full coverage without making my lines and wrinkles noticeable. I also have sensitive, allergic and acne prone skin and I have had no breakouts in a week. The foundation is perfect, lasts all day (at least 8-12 hours) and gives me an airbrushed look. I don’t use my Beauty Blender or brush. I found it best applied with my clean fingers. Easy to apply evenly without wasting product. Love, love, love.

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Creme - Cherries In The Snow 440

I don't like the color but that's because I usually wear red. I bought because it's a classic. I've got nw15 complexion. I wore it with a purple dress. I'm thinking it would probably look better with black and white like another reviewer had mentioned. The formula and the tube and the price are great.


Lipstick -Revlon -ColorBurst Matte Balm - Standout

I wore this to work this week for the first time and was not disappointed. I believe a customer even complimented me on it. I think it's a cool red not a coral. It compliments my nw15 complexion. If you're looking for a vintage red you can put on in a hurry, try this one out.

Stick -Revlon -Photoready Insta-Fix Makeup SPF 20

I have been using this product ever since it came out and it is a staple of my routine. It provides good coverage and offers shades for yellow-undertone skin like mine (unlike many makeup lines that only cater to pinkish tones). The amount of product is good, even you don't have to use much of it. And the price is very reasonable for the quality. Will buy again.

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

on 10/24/2017 10:57:00 AM

ETA: 10/2017 - tried this again - (combo/oily version) and here I am, not even 3 hours of wear - and I had to blot with 3 (!!!!!) blotting sheets to take away my shine already. I even used a primer AND setting powder and applied this with a brush. For oil control, this isn't working for me. I may try without a primer tomorrow - but this prevents shine as long as any other foundation I've tried (Rimmel, NYX, CG, WnW). If NOT using a primer doesn't help (maybe my primer is making me oily?) I debate about repurchase, just because this does seem to handle my pores a bit better than other foundations. Not shine control, but pore-filling for oily, large pores, yes.

Crème -Revlon -ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

on 10/22/2017 9:00:00 PM

This past weekend, I had almost $40 in CVS Extra Bucks and decided I would stock up on my new HG foundation. This product started out as a definite Meh for me - but recently, I'd dug it out and gave it another try, to find that the color (Warm Golden) is the best match ever for me, and that it has durability throughout the business day. Not sure why I didn't like it initially, but this is now my go-to for most days. I find the gel texture to be easy to work with using fingers to apply and blend. I don't get much, if any, oxidation. It's subtly perfect - initially it can seem kind of blah, until you look at yourself in hour 5 or 6 and see how well everything is holding up.

So with Extra Bucks ready and waiting on my card, alas, I found that the Whipped Creme foundation is no more. I bought instead the liquid ColorStay for normal to dry skin, in Sand Beige (since Warm Golden is not offered in this product), and will give it a fair trial.

I found a site today that sells discontinued cosmetics, mostly drugstore brands, called Buy Me Beauty, and they have all shades of the Whipped Creme foundation in stock. I bought 4. (FYI I should mention that I was not a drugstore foundation girl until this product. I've tried so many, from so many different high-end brands, that I just have never been wild about or wanted to buy twice. It was just chance that I dug this out, probably left over from some business trip on which I forgot to bring foundation from home.)

This is a soft red that I can wear everyday and it's one of my favorites, along with Rum Raisin, from the Super Lustrous line. Finally, my red lipstick! Will definitely buy this again!

Polishes -Revlon -Colorstay Gel Envy - Dealer's Choice (240)

on 10/21/2017 5:53:00 PM

Dealer's Choice is an aquamarine, shimmer polish. The shimmer is only visible close up.

The consistency is on a thick side, which means you can't apply too many coats, which isn't a problem as this polish is highly pigmented. You will only need 2 coats for a full opacity. I reckon the thickness is there to create that 'gel look' effect. I didn't enjoy applying this polish. My biggest frustration was that after I cleared the brush from the excess polish, by the time I'd bring the brush to my nail more polish would trickle down the stem, flooding the nail.

I ignored the fact that this polish includes base and used my own base coat, and I am so glad I did. This polish is a stainer. Due to the base coat I used my stains weren't too bad. I recommend you take great care removing this polish, try not to rub the polish into your skin around the nail (applying a little cuticle oil around your nails before you start the removal might help with this). I removed this polish before taking a shower, so by the time I came out of the shower most of the staining on and around the nails disappeared.

If you are looking for something similar, but better quality I recommend you try Essie Viva Antigua or Essie Naughty Nautical.

Primer/ Corrector -Revlon -YOUTH FX™ FILL + BLUR PRIMER FOR FACE/NECK

on 10/21/2017 10:58:00 AM

foto

I was looking to try a new primer, I'd tried Revlon's PhotoReady Perfecting Primer, and liked it.
Base on reviews, this sounded like a new and improved version of that.
I have a very oily T-zone and use primer not as a base for foundation, but to mattify and blur pores and fine lines.
Sadly, this did none of these things. It's quite liquid-y and it applies much more like a lotion than a primer.
It's effect was also more like that of a lotion, there was no matte finish at all. My skin look as if I'd just slathered it with a moisturizer- left a kind of wet, dewy finish. Definitely not what I want in a primer.
Returned it the next day, and picked up NYX's Angel Veil in it's place.

Love this product its incredible. It makes my lashes pop with length and density.


Mascara -Revlon -Volume + Length Magnified Mascara

on 10/20/2017 3:04:00 PM

Volume and length is an absolute untruth. This product provides neither. I had never tried it and was looking for a change. I am always leery of switching mascara. I ended up calling Revlon and they are sending a $10 gift certificate. I don't understand why anyone comments about tossing it in the trash and not even calling for a refund! Nice to be made of money, I suppose. Unfortunately, the mascara the representative recommended is ALSO getting terrible reviews! I'll just find another Revlon product to use the coupon on and get a L'Oreal mascara. :(

Liquid -Revlon -Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily

on 10/20/2017 1:58:00 PM

This was recommended by a couple of beauty gurus that I watch, so I thought I would give it a try. I have combination skin, and at age 46 I am a little picky on my foundation. I would say the most important things to me are coverage and staying power. This foundation blew me away in both of those areas.

The cons of this product- getting a perfect shade match. I felt like the shade I got looked dark in the bottle, but on my face it is lighter than expected. I will be getting another shade and mixing a bit as I go. I also don't love the packaging. The seal is huge, and mine was almost impossible to peel off. Parts of it are still on the bottle, getting gross and sticky. So annoying.

HOWEVER I will deal with a crappy seal because I LOVE this foundation. I have been using it about a week now and it truly does the job. It stays on really well, and I love that my face doesn't go oily when I wear it. I had a Make-Up Forever and a EsteeLauder Double Wear sample in my drawer when I bought this. I was trying to decide between the other two foundations (croak- they are over $40.00 each!) because I was just struggling to find a foundation I was excited about. let me tell you- those others have nothing on this Revlon foundation. I rotated between the brands and literally, while the formulas may be different, the outcome is so similar, I can't see spending more than the 10 bucks on the Revlon. I will keep this on hand at all times, maybe occasionally I will splurge on a high end foundation if a sale hits (or I can use points for a deluxe sample) but for the day to day this is a winner. Heading out to get more this weekend!
