Liquid -Revlon - PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup

foto

I bought this to review on my YouTube channel and I just can't. I did a Hollar Haul...this stuff not only shows all my pores and wrinkles, IT SMELLS LIKE ROTTED BUTT! I gagged. It's foul. I goggled it and yes, the smell is reported by others but this smells like what yould imagine an old rotted expired foundation would like. I immediately took this off with my makeup remover, then I exfoliated, used my The Ordinary Toner and then washed again with lemon juice. It scared me.

Crme -Revlon - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

I love the coverage, but the feel of it drives me nuts. It's like it never totally sinks into my skin, and instead just sits there feeling all tacky and sticky. No one else seems to be having this problem, so clearly I'm the outlier. I also don't get more than eight hours out of this, despite having normal skin.

Lipstick -Revlon - Ultra HE Matte Metallic Lipcolor

on 9/1/2017 4:29:00 PM

The taste and smell remind me of the old butter glosses Revlon had. It's fruity, both scented and flavoured. The pictures in the display show a high shine, metallic look that it just doesn't deliver. I bought the pearl pink shade Gleam which looks like the mod lipstick shades of 1965. On the lips it's not metallic at all - just a high shine pale pink lip gloss.

PS I should mention that there is a way to make it look like the picture in the store display! You just have to layer it on like icing on a cake. Keep putting on coats and it will get that space agey, glittery, thick, metallic look. Of course you can't move your face because it won't last.

Eye Shadow -Revlon - ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow

I purchased this in the shade Black Currant which is a gorgeous, dusty lilac shade. By itself, it is a little too light for me, but when paired (or layered) with another shadow it's FABULOUS. I've been using it as a super sparkly primer under a griege powder shadow and it is absolutely stunning. It just really compliments whatever is layered over it and really makes it pop. Love love love it!

Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Shine - Kissable Pink 805

on 8/31/2017 9:07:00 PM

I was looking for a cool light pink lipstick, and I decided to give Kissable Pink a try. It's okay, but I probably won't repurchase. This lipstick is very sheer and it's impossible to build up the color. My own lips are fairly rosy, so this shade didn't make much of an impact. I've been wearing Gentlemen Prefer Pink #450 instead and it gives me the cool light pink color I want with complete coverage. Gentlemen Prefer Pink also comes in shade #451, which is a warm pink. I haven't tried it, but I imagine it would give complete coverage too.

Lipstick -Revlon - Moon Drops Creme - Persian Melon 585

I bought this when I changed my hair to blonde. All my cool toned makeup looked weird with my new hair color. It didn't really help though, as both the hair color and the lipstick were all wrong for me. This is definitely a warm pink, which would be a perfect pink for someone with warm skin. I am, however, a cool summer need a bluer pink. Gentlemen Prefer Pink #450 is also by Revlon, but it has a nice cool undertone that I prefer. I still gave it 3 lippies, because the performance was fine. It's moisturizing and lasts a decent amount of time. It's just not for me.

So patchy and difficult to blend. Very streaky even with a beauty blender. Did not like it.


Foundations -Revlon - Youth fx

I bought this on a whim, when I found myself in a CVS killing time waiting for a dentist appointment. I bought with no prior research, which is good, because the reviews here on MUA are not favorable.

I like the shade range, it works for me. I have a fairly neutral skin tone, which sounds like it would make it easy to find foundation, but it can sometimes be quite the opposite.

I bought it in two different colors, 240 medium beige, and 400 caramel (to use to mix into some of the 240 as a bronzer.)

It does give me a luminous glow, does not accentuate lines, may actually diminish them. It lasts at least 8 hours without fading, probably more, doesn't smear around, and just looks good!

I've been wearing it over just Biore sunscreen or Dior Dream Skin Capture Totale (ridiculously priced primer that works extremely well for me).

This does last the best when worn in conjunction with the dior primer. I've not tried the primer by Revlon in this same line.

Applying using fingers works okay, using a silicone gel sponge (the slick kind ) does a fantastic job! I put a dab of the lighter shade on the sponge, and a dot of the darker on top of that and blend directly onto my face. Super easy way to get the color I want, and it looks beautiful.

I have dry mature skin.

This foundation is a win for me.

Foundations -Revlon - Youth fx

There appear to be some very negative reviews for this foundation but I actually love it. I am middle aged and perhaps more at the age this foundation is marketed for. I have a normal to dry skin that is ageing. I have a few fine lines and the like. I really like the texture and blurring effect that this foundation creates.
This foundation gives me a medium and more natural coverage but definitely a more flawless finish. For me, I find it is best applied with your fingers. I think the use of fingers (rather than brushes and sponges) help the gel-like texture of this foundation to warm up, be spread across the face and adhere to the skin better. I use the shade Nude (200) all over my face; and then use the shade Ivory (110) as an under eye concealer (Note: The Youth FX concealer which is also available does not have a shade that is light or cool enough for me so the Ivory foundation is perfect as a wonderful under eye alternative). As I have a fair cool toned skin these two foundation shades are both perfect for me. The shades do not oxidise either.
I have found that I prefer to use this foundation WITHOUT the associated Youth FX filler primers in the same range. The addition of these filler primers just seemed to create overkill and didn't make the foundation work as well. Using this foundation just over my own moisturisers/sunblock gives me a much better effect and added length of wear too. I also use Urban Decay's Ultra Definition Powder Foundation as a very final setting powder (in the shade Fair Cool) lightly dusted over the top. With this approach, the wear of this foundation lasts me around 10-12 hours. My skin looks more flawless and radiant with this Revlon Youth FX foundation with less obvious line issues. It does not easily crease like some other foundations do, even in my under eye area - that is very impressive indeed. The packaging is excellent too with a lightweight, easy to store and take on the go tube.
I do hope that people give this new Revlon Youth FX foundation a chance and don't just listen to only the negative reviews. I have already made multiple purchases of this foundation and think it is wonderful.

Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorstay Moisture Stain

on 8/28/2017 2:50:00 PM

This lip color stays soft and strong for HOURS... It applies like a mix between a gloss and a liquid lipstick, and takes some time to "settle" on the lips and really become a stain. For the first 40 minutes or so, it wears like a gloss but then it stains and wears like a balm. Can't beat the price for the longevity and comfort of this product. If you like long-wearing color but hate the cakey, drying feeling some other long-wear lipsticks can impart, give this one a try. I plan to go back to the store I bought mine from and get one in each color... maybe multiples, just in case it becomes discontinued at some point... I got mine in "Parisian Passion" and it's a lovely purple-burgundy. Makes my teeth look whiter, too, which is a nice bonus!

Powder -Revlon - ColorStay Pressed powder

I was in a crunch and couldn't afford my HG powder foundation from Clinique which runs all of about $30/compact. I just didn't have the money. I ALWAYS have to buy my powder from Belks either Clinique, MAC, ect. I have tried SO many different powders from Walmart and to no avail they never worked. Until i found this!! I picked this up in "FAIR" at my local CVS and am actually HIGHLY pleased with this product. The coverage is good. The staying powder is good. The color match is good. Everything I could have asked for and instead of paying $30 i paid $12. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS! Give it a try!


Lipstick -Revlon - ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick (all colors)

foto

This is one of my favorite liquid lipsticks. I chose a purplish/pink color. This lipstick went on easily and was very pleased at the lovely color. Unlike other long wearing lipcolor, this one does not come with a lip balm. This dried quicly and did not dry my lips. It did dry to a matte finish which i liked, however i think i would like it even more if it was more glossy. This would be the perfect lipstick to add a lip topper to give it some shine. I added a shimmery topper to this and it was amazing!!!! Definitely a great product!


Polishes -Revlon - ColorStay Gel Envy in Vegas, Baby

on 8/27/2017 10:22:00 PM

CUTE! Revlon's Vegas Baby is a bright, vivid shade of medium hot pink that dries to a shiny, creamy finish. The color looks so deep and saturated on the nail and I love it.

It's hard for me to find a pink that complements my olive skin tone, but this one looks pretty and flattering on me.

Great formula too. Opaque in two coats and no problems with application or wear.

This is a five-star Revlon. I would definitely buy it again!

Nails -Revlon - Colorstay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel

One day I'll write a review on all the gel-like polishes I've tried, but for now, I'll start with my favourite. I love this product. I'm a nurse, so I wash my hands constantly, and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer even more than that. Normal polish lasts a shift, MAYBE two on me. This stuff I bought, thinking it would never last, and boom. Four shifts, no problem. I do have some minor wear on the tips after four shifts, and the top coat seems to be wearing off after four shifts, but a reapplication of the top coat fixes it all.

Again, I've tried the other drugstore gel-like polishes, and none last this long. My only complaint is the lack of colour selection. They DEFINITELY need more colours in the range, because I would buy just about all of them. As it is, I have 5 I think.

I bought the shade cappuccino. I didn't have high hopes for this foundation until I actually tried it! It kept my super oily skin extremely matte and I was so impressed! Check out my full YouTube review here
