Lipstick -REVLON -Super Lustrous Sandalwood Beige

I owned a few revlon lipsticks from this range a few years back but did not like them mainly because they looked like a layer of oily paint on my lips. The new formular blends in with my lips so much better that they look “together”. First , I love the Color , it is a woody orange , very chic , a lovely mix of orange with browns and a little pinks/reds. No greys . The cream texture is butter soft allowing the lipstick to apply smoothly with a nice subtle shine . Making my lips look well plump without accentuating lines . Loving it .this would look good with daring bronze eye looks

Lips -REVLON -Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Adore

on 7/18/2018 4:18:00 PM

I just love this little balm so much, it's exactly that easy sheer red I've been looking for.

Pros:

Sheer touch of a pretty pinky/brown red
You can apply it easily without a mirror
Definitely a my lips but better tint that lasts longer than expected
It smells slightly minty
Price is worth it


Cons:
little glitter particles that aren't too noticeable, but I could do without
The plastic packaging was difficult to get off for some reason


Mascara -REVLON -Volumazing Mascara

on 7/18/2018 1:32:00 PM

I saw this at CVS about a month ago. It was described as infused with Carnauba wax and olive oil, so I decided to give it a try. I've loved a lot of Revlon products over the years, but, I never liked ANY of their mascaras...until now. This stuff is true to it's name. The formula is creamy and glides on my lashes. It gives me very dark, glossy, volumized lashes. I've had no problems with flaking or clumping, but did notice some smudging in the increasingly very hot weather here in Texas! So, I started applying over a lash primer, and oh baby! My lashes look so full, dark and lush! They are soft, not spiky or crunchy. With the primer this mascara lasts all day without smudging. The price is ok, and the packaging is nothing special. But, with the formula being this good, who cares?!

This stuff made me look like I had a mask on and it was very unnatural looking no matter how carefully applied. The pump broke after just two uses so it went into the trash where it belonged to start with. A big disappointment and total waste of money. There are many much more affordable drug store products out there!!!


Polishes -REVLON -705 Gray Suede

Love this polish & color. I just used for a mani the other day and it's a lovely nude with a hint more color for my complexion which is perfect. I don't like muddy browns or bright colors on my nails as I prefer white or light pinkish/nudes for mani's. This works perfect and Revlon has always made quality nail polish in my opinion. Pleased.

Hair Color -REVLON -Colorsilk

I speak from experience over the years. If you want your hair to turn out the EXACT color of the hair on picture of the box, you'll need to bleach it first. If your hair is darker than the color of the picture on the box, don't expect a change as color can not lift color. This has a very low developer and is almost a demi formula despite being marketed as permanent. It's mainly color depositing due to the low volume and low amount of lift (if any whatsoever).

Now that I've gotten that out of the way - it's not required to bleach your hair first. Your hair just has to be slightly lighter than the depicted shade in order to get results. So that makes it simple to pick a shade if any of you are struggling.

None of this is a con in my opinion. The trade off is this formula is awesome. Colorsilk doesn't damage my hair - even without Olaplex. And I use Olaplex for nearly everything. With the exception of coppery shades, Revlon was smart enough to formulate the warm shades to have a tiny amount of violet (ash) in the mix so they won't turn out brassy. My favorite is Warm Golden Blonde. If it was literally an orangey shade of blonde I would never touch it again. Most drugstore hair dyes mess that up.

A lot of the blonde shades look bizarre (i.e orangey pink) UNTIL it starts to develop so don't let that scare you. Champagne Blonde turned almost dark purple once oxidized despite starting off a yellowy rosegold hue. I like to use these to tone my hair since the damage is so minimal and the cost is dirt cheap.

I do wish Revlon would include a larger size of conditioner with the set because it's pretty effective. The included conditioner is about 1/4th of an oz and not even enough to cover my roots. I have waist length hair. But at less than $3 a box, I can't complain much.

This is the only box dye I'll ever use. For every other need I go straight to professional salon brands for individual shades. So that's saying a lot that I would continue to use Colorsilk.

Eye Shadow -REVLON -Beyond Natural Cream to Powder Eye Shadow

From all the makeup products I have ranging from high street to designer, this is my holy grail. It fits perfectly to my skin tone with a sheer consistency that I love. Not to mention, I have a monolid and this works like magic! I've read several reviews saying it creases, well, monolid girls & guys this is our product. This product doesn't move on my eyes and it stays on when I come home at night. I do have to say though I have to apply the colors precisely or it will transfer easily. Nevertheless, it blends perfectly to my skin. This is a versatile product that you can use as contour and highlighter too. I've also tried using this as an under-eye concealer and it works. One complaint: can Revlon produce more color range for this product?

Lipstick -REVLON -Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

I didn’t like this product for a couple of reasons. First they cloyingly sweet sugary bubblegum fragrance. For me the fragrance was a bit hard to get past and made me think this was more suited for a young girl. Second, this isn’t really matte. It’s just a regular cream finish lipstick. I have a few matte liquid lipsticks and this is by far the worst. This also doesn’t set, ever. Be prepared for this to transfer onto anything that touches your lips. Would not buy again, product fail and a waste of money.

Lipstick -REVLON -Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

foto

I bought two of these. A straight-up matte and a metallic matte. The colors are very nice, but one was too warmish pink for me. It looked a bit cooler in the tube than it did on my lips. The metallic matte lipstick was a mauvish pink, which was much better for my skin color. I really like this shade, and it works well for my cool/neutral coloring.

These never really set on my lips. They also have a very fruity flavor and smell, which I find okay, but if you are sensitive to fragrance, it may be a no-go. I find that they are not as drying as many matte lipsticks I've tried and they don't crumble and fall off like those ones did, but I do find that it doesn't last very long. Especially after I eat. When I drink a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, lipstick is left all over the cups and glasses. This is after I've given the product plenty of time to dry.

I like the packaging and the wand that comes with them. Easy to use and attractive.

All in all, these aren't too bad for a DS product. I think it's a bit misleading to call them matte, as they are not a true matte, but the formula is tolerable and the color selection is quite nice. YMMV.

Lip Gloss -REVLON -Kiss Lip Balm SPF 20

I have this in Berry and I really like it as an SPF lip balm. The colour is a sheer plum, the flavour is mildly sweet but not perfumey, and it keeps my lips from getting burned if I reapply. I will repurchase. I'm hoping it doesn't get discontinued because it's the only tinted lip product with SPF I'm able to get in Canada.

Horrible! It's a dry, cakey, & mask looking foundation. My skin looked old, tight, & just nasty. Plus it broke my face out. Worst drugstore foundation on earth.

Liquid -REVLON -ColorStay Makeup (24 hour formula)

I have pretty good skin so usually can make most foundations work. I bought CS in 150 Buff only because I recently discovered I have olive undertones (game changing revelation! :D), and pale olive foundation shades are hard to come by. Plus, I’m a foundation junkie.
So, the shade matched me decently (it’s not yellow enough for me, I can make it work though), but the formula, oh my! It sits on my skin in such an ugly way, settled into fine lines I didn’t even know I had. It looked like I’ve put on some cheap face paint.
As for long lasting claims... well, it doesn’t last as long as ELDW (but nothing lasts as long as ELDW, right?). The wear time is decent, though I didn’t really care to notice- I was distracted by how unnatural and mask-like my skin looks once I put this foundation on.
I’ve tried it with different primers/ moisturizers/ powders. Each time it emphasized every tiny imperfection, looked cakey- plain ugly.
Also, I have a sneaking suspicion it makes me break out. I’ve noticed the increase of closed comedones, and it’s the only base product I incorporated into my routine recently.
I won’t repurchase and will use it only for swatching purposes.
