I am on a quest to start collecting them . I only like the cream range . I bought sandalwood beige and bare affair . I had tried the lipsticks ten years back and they were not as good as they are now. Right amount of creaminess and Oilinesss, non drying , nice colors , sturdy packaging, no scent, ... good pigmentation .. everything is done right.


Eye Shadow -REVLON -Colorstay Creme Eyeshadow in 715 Espresso

on 9/21/2018 9:05:00 PM

I love this eyeshadow!! I'm not somebody who creates detailed eye looks with a whole bunch of different colors; I need simple.

I have blue eyes that are hooded and starting to get a little wrinkly. I apply this all over my lid and on the hood with my fingertip (have never used the brush )and build it to get the depth I want. It makes my hood "appear" to recede, and my eyes stand out more.

The color is perfect; a lot of brown eyeshadows I've tried pull way too warm on me but this one doesn't.

I don't use primer with this because it's creme. It doesn't get blotchy or crease, and it lasts all day for me.

It also doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes. Plus it is a good price...around $8 and often part of a buy 1-get 1 half off deal at Ulta.

Lips -REVLON -Balm Stain - Moonlit Pink

on 9/21/2018 10:33:00 AM

This is one of 5 new limited edition balm stains. I got Moonlit Pink (nude pink), Twilight (gray lavender), and Prismatic Purple (dark purple). They all have fine multicolor shimmer--silver, pink or blue, which makes the color look different on the lips and from the tube. I like Moonlit Pink best--it looks light brown, but goes on lips a MLBB light pink nude. They all have a mint flavor, though it's strongest in Twilight. There is also a black one--for Halloween?

Foundations -REVLON -ColorStay Full Cover Foundation

on 9/19/2018 11:00:00 PM

I was devastated when the whipped foundation was discontinued, as I haven't had luck with many drugstore foundations. My skin is very pale and alternates between combo, dry, and oily in T zone depending on how heavy handed ive been with my Retin A ! Im not a fan of full coverage foundations which I find can look cakey on more "mature" skin, 1 layer will give you decent medium coverage, you can sheer it out with a sponge or use fingers for more coverage. Ivory matched my cool toned skin perfectly, no mixer needed. The texture is fluffy and bouncy not runny, looks thick out of the tube but thins out and spreads easily onto skin.
The air where I work is warm and dry, but this held up without flaking off, creasing or oxidizing.
the only primer ive tried it with was Two Face Hangover, so not sure how well it would play with silicone primers. The squeeze tube design is much more hygenic and travel friendly
my only gripe is with the price, is it just me or are drugstore foundations getting a little much? especially here in Canada

Lipstick -REVLON -Super Lustrous - Blushing Nude

This is the perfect MLBB for my pigmented lips. It's great for everyday, on the go wear. How I wish for this to be long lasting or at least give a good stain for me to give it a perfect score.

Brows -REVLON -Colorstay Eyebrow Liner Waterproof

I recently switched to this product from the Sephora Collection Eyebrow Pencil. The Revlon Colorstay Eyebrow Pencil in Soft Brown not only compliments my naturally light eyebrows & light skin tone, but it also stays on for most of the day which I have not seen from even the most expensive eyebrow pencils/products.


Lipstick -REVLON -Colorburst balm stain

on 9/18/2018 12:18:00 PM

I'm reviewing the new 5 limited edition shades of this--all with light shimmer, feels moisturising, have slight mint taste. I got Prismatic Purple (dark purple), Twilight (light grayish lavender) and Moonlit Pink (light brown nude pink). I like Moonlit Pink best--it has pink shimmer that makes it a MLBB on my lips. There is also a black shade, maybe good for Halloween!


Crème -REVLON -ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup

If you loved this product, try the new "Colorstay Full Cover" it is the same as Colorstay Whipped, only repackaged/renamed (according to Revlon's consumer care reps). I love this, because it's so pigmented and matte, that it works great for mixing with my Aveeno Positively Radiant SPF15 moisturizer, to make my own TM. I then go in, and apply some more over any blemishes or areas that need a bit more coverage. Beautiful soft matte finish, that holds up well, even over my oily t-zone (and I never bother with powder, as I don't care for it). For formal occasions, I will apply this over my moisturizer (versus mixing it), for more coverage, and it creates flawless looking skin. I am around an NC20, and the shade "Nude" is a perfect match. I still have a full jar of the Colorstay Whipped, and I'm so happy that once I use it up, I can still enjoy my favorite foundation!

Purchased this after other reviewers stated it is the same as Colorstay Whipped (glass jar), only repackaged/renamed. I have to agree, this seems to be exactly the same, only the squeeze tube is far more user and travel friendly!

Liquid -REVLON -Photoready Airbrush Effect

on 9/17/2018 6:40:00 AM

The major issue that everyone has with this product is of course the significant amounts of glitter. Take a picture with this stuff on your face... it looks amazing!! I would not recommend using this product ALONE as a daily foundation. I bought this from an online sale - the colour did not match my skin tone (it was way too dark), so i bought a tub of Maybeline's FIT ME foundation in the lightest shade possible - mix the two on the back of my hand... and what an amazing result! It is my go-to look every single day (because of the way less glitter on my face and the smooth feel and complexion these two products give). I also found that if you apply this foundation with your hands instead of a beauty blender or a brush... the glitters are not that bad.

This product would be great if you're headed for a fun night out with the girls, or going on a date.

Hair -REVLON -Outrageous Shampoo & Conditioner

I really love this product. I was so sad when they stopped selling it here in the U.S. It was an awesome product that really worked for me. My hair grew like crazy. The packaging/design made it so easy to find. And it smells wonderful! If they brought it back tomorrow to the U.S. It would be the only one I would buy.

Fragrances -REVLON -Fire & Ice

on 9/15/2018 3:59:00 AM

I am 62 and have never heard of this . I read a recent review of it online, and purchased a bottle on a whim and expected something ho hum ( purchased at Wal Mart ) . The first spritz seemed rather generic, but I went ahead and sprayed a few times on my clothes to give it a few hours to analyze .

Within a half hour I smelled a warm vanilla amber that seemed familiar . Actually I own an oil similar to this scent . The day went on and I literally found this cheapie to be downright intoxicating . By dinner time , I headed to a local restaurant . After my meal was over , a YOUNG male chef came to my table. He had a big smile , and said with great enthusiasm “You smell so good!” . By that time I could not smell it , but he did .

I find this interesting because two weeks ago I splurged on a beautiful Guerlain I fell in love with - Eau De Shalimar . I have worn that fragrance several times ( it is gorgeous and a soft version of Shalimar ) out while doing errands or having dinner with friends . The Guerlain received no compliments , but Fire and Ice, by Revlon , got the attention of a handsome young chef . The moral of this story is two fold . Never judge a book by its cover ( brand label ) and don’t assume grandmas wear ugly fragrances that are tasteless .

I like this fragrance so much I bought three more bottles. It smells a lot like “Amber Romance “ a VS product . However, Fire and Ice has less sweetness and is smoother. It smells like an expensive perfume and I love it .

Fragrances -REVLON -Norell

on 9/15/2018 3:40:00 AM

Novell has been around a while . I wore it as a young woman thirty years ago. Having said that , Norell, is a sophisticated scent that is spicy , not intense, and and has a very expensive smell . Many of the classics were once pricy fragrances . Was it beautiful in 1986 ? Yes. And it is still a very well done fragrance for a polished or refined woman - even a young one !

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

on 9/12/2018 8:01:00 PM

foto

3.5/5

This is my second liquid foundation ever and I bought it right after using up my Lancome Teint Idole Liquid Foundation and...honestly the difference between them was minimal. I think Lancome applied a bit smoother, but the overall results were similar, so I guess this is pretty impressive for a drug-store product (or maybe Lancome just sucks lmao).

Just like what I experienced with Lancome, I wouldn't recommend using this foundation without a setting powder. I have oily skin and although this is the combination/oily formula, when it's been first applied my face still looks very shiny, but perhaps the formula did help with a longer, more matte wear (depends on the day, but 12-hour at best, DEFINITELY not 24-hour).

The coverage is medium to high, will be great for people without pimples, but I have acne and scars so this isn't sufficient without a concealer.

Product could also look cakey sometimes but I think that depends more on my skin condition that day, if I had just exfoliated that it would be quite smooth.

I also don't care for the SPF, I always apply a sunscreen separately, so can't really comment on that.

And package-wise, I do like the glass bottle but the plastic pump looks rather cheap (well it's not expensive I'll admit that).

On a side note, I made the mistake of choosing the wrong shade (200 Nude), way too pink-toned and light-colored for me...but of course this is my mistake, if I had chosen the right shade I'm sure it will look better.

Overall, if I were to go back to liquid foundation, I will buy this again, but for now I think powder just suits my skin type better.


Lipstick -REVLON -Super Lustrous Lipstick (Creme) - Rose Velvet

on 9/12/2018 2:05:00 PM

foto

Well, I am totally surprised by this lipstick! Rose Velvet is an elegant, muted warm rose that I would expect to find at a Chanel counter. I can't tell you how hard it's been to find any pink based lip colors that don't look garish and ridiculous on me. I just assumed I would never be able to wear pink makeup, ever. I'm embarrassed to think about how many lipsticks I've bought and tossed. I have quite fair but very golden skin (tan easily), green eyes, dark blonde hair, and I look TERRIBLE in cool colors. Soft Autumn colors, all the way. If you're used to wearing lip colors called "terracotta red" "raisin" or "spice" this pink might work for you! I also appreciate that this is just a few shades deeper than "nude" lip colors that always make me look dead or washed out.
