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

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

on 4/18/2018 11:40:00 PM

This worked on me when I was closer to normal/oily but since becoming a dry to very dry skin type, I just can't use it anymore.

Pros:
- doesn't need to be set, dries to a powder finish
- awesome shade range for light/medium skin tones. I'm a light olive and 150 buff is a perfect match in winter.
- very reasonably priced
- simple pump packaging
- good coverage (medium-full) if that's what you're looking for

Cons:
- too drying for dry skin
- looked flaky and emphasized dryness and texture
- felt uncomfortable and "tight" to wear because it was so dry
- after a while (~5 months), it seemed to dry up in the bottle and tiny clumps would be pumped out along with the foundation

Bottom line: if you have normal/combo skin this might work for you, but stay far, far away if you have a dry skin type prone to flaking or dry patches.


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

This has has been my hands down favorite *everyday* liquid foundation for about 4 1/2 years now. Maybe even more. In order to get the perfect shade for my skin I really like to mix the Combo/oily 250 fresh beige with a small pump of normal/dry 110 ivory. I HIGHLY recommend applying this with the Tarte Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush. It literally blends out so easy, and smooth giving a FLAWLESS finish in just a few seconds. I usually finish up with a loose mineral powder to set on top, and I couldn't be happier.

Pros
Medium coverage
Lasts at least 8hrs without primer or setting spray
You can buy this online for roughly $10.00
Come in shades of BOTH normal/dry - combo/oily !!
A wide variety of shades
No weird smell

Cons
If you have combo skin like me, it can start to get a tad oily towards the end of the day.

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

I had problems with oily skin and I didn't know what to do anymore to keep my foundation in place, then I found this. It has great coverage and makes skin look less oily. Even if my face gets a bit shiny after some hours, the foundation still stays on my face. If you apply some translucent powder it will take the shine away and it will look just fine. Definitely a good quality product!

I love this brown lipstick. It looks like a brown nude on my pale skin. So sexy and 90s grungy looking.


Eyeliner -Revlon -Colorstay Eyeliner

foto

Okay. I have been using Revlon Colorstay eyeliner in the color Black for roughly 8 years. I run through about 3 of them in a month because I used this liner constantly. I loved this eyeliner. Recently, within the last year, every time I have purchased a new one, they all have crumbled to pieces on my lid during and after application. I have tried the freezer trick, the blowdryer trick, the Mac fix+ but nothing worked to fix the issue. I bought about 5 more before deciding to read an old package label verses the new ones I’ve bought. The old ones were made in Italy, and the new ones are made in the U.S. and they are complete garbage. The old formula used to glide on smoothly and stay for hours...no crumbling...no crumbs falling into my eyeballs and blinding me to death. Read the label before you buy this liner, if you do not see “Italy” printed anywhere on the back label, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. Amazon sells these and the back label in the picture says “Made in Italy” so I’m going to try Amazon. Hopefully they dont send me the new formula liner. So frustrating, my holy grail is gone. Revlon, why are you changing something that worked? Stop this nonsense.

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

I read that Revlon colorstay is supposed to be a dupe for Estee Lauder double wear. I love EL DW and this is my HG foundation, so I had to try this foundation. The price of Revlon over EL is amazing. The local grocery store had a coupon, so I got this foundation for $7.50. EL DW is $42! I was able to get a comparable color to EL.

I love the bottle and pump, which made application easy. It blended out nice with my ecotools sponge. It is light to medium where EL is medium to full coverage. I applied second layer and it was tacky, so I used too faced peach setting powder. This looks so cakey on the skin.

The color oxidized and made my skin look muddy. I really had high hopes, but this is not a dupe for EL DW.

Can’t believe people don’t like this shade. I am 55 and think it is a nice subtle shade of pink. Kind of peachy pink. I put this on my cheeks too. The most perfect blush ever.

I have had issues with not being able to get all of the product out of the container, like others have experienced with this product. Please let me know if you have had that experience with this product or other products as I am investigating the issue. Thanks! ksnyder@snyderlawfirmllc.com


Liquid -Revlon -Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily

This is actually pretty good considering how cheap it is! On its own it does tend to crease & luk slightly weird but with a primer it looks as good as any high end foundation. I keep this as a back up or when I can’t afford to buy an expensive foundation lol. Holds up well on my oily skin with maybe just one touch up required during the day, (again this only applies for me as I use a primer underneath).
Slight sensitivity to it but then I’m allergic to nearly all foundations and this does contain quite a lot of alcohol & other not so gentle ingredients :( Also choose ur shade carefully as the fair shades have a slight grey tone to them.. i went a shade darker and it works better :)

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Pearl - Wild Orchid 457

on 4/13/2018 1:48:00 PM

I was drawn to this lipstick due to an old magazine cover featuring Natalie Portman wearing this type of shade (in retrospect it was L'Oreal Sea Fleur...don't ask how I remember that, because it was definitely more than a decade ago). For some reason that image has stuck in my mind for years and so I finally picked this up.

I have olive skin that is pretty fair in winter (aka now) and dark features, and this lipstick is deep as well as bright. It's a blue-based fuschia with super-fine blue/purple microshimmer. (Side note, I walked into Ulta the other day and everything was holographic and I am not mad about it. I have a feeling Wild Orchid will get a little bit more exposure because of this new ~festival makeup~ situation.)

In that photo, Natalie kept it simple with clean skin and eyes and a minimal, ballet-inspired look (I think. Pretty sure). Someone mentioned Wild Orchid has a rocker-chick vibe and that's definitely true too. It's honestly a very versatile shade for something so bright and I like that it has that super feminine vibe with an edge. You can get retro pin-up-y with it, and if you're really feeling like revving up the engine, there are enormous Helmut Newton vibe possiblities here. It also has the potential to look incredible on a vast array of skin tones.

The formula is near-perfect. It's creamy & opaque, wears well, lasts a decent amount of time, and leaves a pretty stain. In fact, I would recommend this just for the stain topped with gloss. The shimmer has a very slight gritty feel but it's minimal and doesn't bother me. It's not moisturizing, but also not drying per se - it's more like after a while, the pigment sinks into your lips and the shimmer doesn't. Just a heads up. But it's definitely less of annoying shimmer than most other frost formulas.

The best part about this lipstick, and this is true of so many Revlon lipsticks, is that it's just so low maintenance. There is something magical about the Revlon formula that makes experimenting with bright and dark lip looks unfussy and less of a mess. They're not smear-y and they sink in, so if you don't feel like dealing with your makeup all day (and night) they're a total WIN-WIN. And there are so many shades - let me rephrase, so many interesting AND flattering shades. And they are five dollars each.

Packaging is whatever.

Lipstick -Revlon -Super Lustrous Creme - Pink in the Afternoon

I like this lipstick--- but, for me, it lacks punch, doesn't quite brighten my face. That said, it's a very pretty color for those who like less contrast than I do.

I bought it long ago because I read that it's the lippie---or a dupe of the lippie--- that Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's. I disagree. It's much more of a tan rose than Audrey's Breakfast at Tiffany's color. To try to duplicate what she wore, try Rimmel's Kate 28----a much brighter peachy pink!

I have used this, off and on, for over a decade. It is great for an every day medium coverage Foundation, UNLESS you have any flaking on your skin, then it sticks to and magnifies it. Never breaks me out. Also great that it has a pump.
