I LOVE this red. I never thought I could pull off a red like this and turns out that I can! It looks great applied straight out of the tube and evened out with your finger. I happen to be wearing this colour the day/moment I got engaged so maybe I'm a little biased but it's a beautiful shade of red and so many wonderful memories will always be attached to this lipstick. (And of course I will be wearing another beautiful shade of Revlon on my wedding day).
So, this colour isn't exactly what I was expecting. On everyone else, it seems vampy and on me it seems a bit muted, a burgundy with brown and plum undertones. It applies a bit streaky but, it's pretty easy to even out (and it really just might be me trying to apply with a light hand). I find that if too much is applied it can look a little cakey. It's a great colour for fall and winter. It's very easy to turn it into a nice stain and it is very matte, even with lip balm underneath. As with most matte lipsticks, it is a bit drier than Revlon's creme lipsticks but it doesn't dry out your lip like a stain would.

I like this colour, but it's not one that I'd run out and buy again when I'm all out (whenever that is). I can tell this colour is going to last me a while because I really don't use it that much. It comes off a little orangey red, which seems to only look nice on me when I'm wearing navy blue, black or dark brown clothing. I'm really trying to work with this colour but, I find it quite difficult and I don't think it should be this hard. As always, Revlon's lipsticks are VERY moisturizing and I do love the consistency and lasting power, but it's just the colour that I'm having issues with.

Now, despite how I feel about this product in the colour Adore, I LOVE Crush! It does moisturize and then eventually dry my lip out even when I apply products under and over it, but I find this one doesn't settle into the lines of my lips the way Adore does. And, I would simply repurchase because I LOVE this colour that much! It's the perfect burgundy-plum!

IF this ever did run out, I don't think I'd be dying to repurchase. It does dry my lips out after the day is through, even though the stain does last all day and it's REALLY moisturizing upon first application. After a while the stain settles into the lines of my lips and that's when I start scrubbing it off (along with the layer of dead skin it creates). I tried protecting my lip with Blistex but that didn't really work either. Also, when it's first applied, it an orangey brown with gold shimmer and I'm not really a fan of shimmer. When the shimmer wears off you're left with a great red toned lip, but, even so... I don't like my lips feeling this dry.

As always, these butters are VERY moisturizing. Similar to Tutti Fruitti, this colour requires my lips to be exfoliated otherwise it shows off any dry areas. It can be either a sheer juicy red that brings life to your lips OR it can be layered for more of an opaque lipstick. I'd repurchase but, not as fast as I'd repurchase Fig Jam.

I absolutely LOVE this colour. Of all the lip butters, it's the one that I've almost used up. It doesn't matter if your skin in dry or well exfoliated, Fig Jam always does the trick. You can wear ANY eye makeup you'd like, any type of clothing and it just works with everything in my opinion. VERY versatile colour! More of a brown with a red undertone.

This is a beautiful and moisturizing brick red. It can be worn sheerly or layered for a lipstick look (one of the more opaque of the butters). My only complaint is that it doesn't last very long on the lips (even without eating). It fades and I find it a little annoying.

I keep trying to decide how much I like this colour. And honestly against my skin tone it looks great (coral-orange) applied with a very light hand. I think this colour can end up looking horrid on un-exfoliated lips. At the same time it's very moisturizing but, doesn't last as long as I'd like. It's also not as opaque as a lipstick. However, I'd still re-apply because I love the colour! It's great for summer but can easily be worn as an everyday colour as well with a pop of coloured eyeliner.

This is very moisturizing, which means that the lasting power isn't amazing. The colour is a bright blue-toned pink. I usually blot it a little to obtain more of a stain than the full colour. This colour will last me a long time simply because I don't get to use it as often as I'd like.
Ok so, I've never been a big fan of mascaras. The main reason is that I've been lazy to apply only to scrub it off at the end of the day or after a few hours. I've used a total of 3 or 4 mascaras. My recent favourite was Full n Soft but, I decided to stray towards the beautiful coral packaging of the One by One mascara. I've also tried to curl my lashes before applying mascara, but when no mascara would hold the curl I gave up hope and went back to my lazy ways. With THIS mascara it's a whole new situation. This mascara (I bought Blackest Black) is very black and holds a curl ALL day. Because of the plastic brush with its many bristles it really does and amazing job of combing out every eyelash and coating them individually and adding quite a bit of length and volume. I apply approximately 3 coats. So far, I had this for a month. I also find that sometimes the tips of my eyelashes have less mascara 5 hours after wearing BUT I'm not complaining because I don't really mind reapplying the tips. Also, after a long period of time it can flake a little (but, that's just me being lazy and not taking it off at the end of the day...shh). I use coconut oil to remove it. It's an amazing mascara! A must try for only $7-8CAD.
This is a VERY smooth eyeliner that doesn't burn my eyes or make them red. It's a beautiful metallic-looking green that make brown eyes pop! I tend to either use it alone or I'll tone it down with the Black Smoothliner when I want more of a pine green with less of the metallic look. Either way, this is a beautiful colour (purchased at Walmart for approx. $5-6).
This liner is VERY smooth and doesn't make my eyes red or burn. I don't really like the colour on it's own, it's a little too bright against my caramel skin. I tend to first line my eyes with Meteorite, then the Black Smoothliner which tones it down to a beautiful navy colour! It looks great with a peach lip for a simple look. I bought it for approx. $5-6 CAD at Walmart. I would repurchase again if I ever run out.
I bought this in black for approximately $5-6CAD. This is the second one that I've bought and it's definitely my favourite eyeliner. Every time I sharpen it, and apply it looks like a liquid liner when applied. It does tend to smudge if you touch it and it can fade if you have oily eyelids. Even so, it's only eyeliner that I've tried so far that hasn't made my eyes red and burn. The black is really black but, it could improve. It can be used both on the upper line and waterline (however, I tend not to line my waterline). Hands down, the smoothest liner I have ever used! Will repurchase unless I ever find something better at the same price!
This colour looks a little 90s on me because it turned out a bit purple against my skin tone, but I still like it because I don't have a colour quite like this. As always, the consistency of Revlon lipsticks are amazing! It is VERY moisturizing for a lipstick (but, I still wear Blistex underneath). I find that I tend to mix this colour with anything with a pinker tone like Revlon's Raspberry Pie Lip Butter. The mix creates a great burgundy, which makes this colour very versatile.
