I picked this up on a whim because I'm a sucker for new foundations. Luckily for me this worked out for once because this one is a winner. I have greeeeassy skin and so usually I only wear concealer and powder foundation, however with it being winter my skin is more on the red side and I needed something with more coverage.

You don't need a lot to get medium to full coverage and once it's on it does not budge. I don't get shiny after a full day of being on my feet at work and it doesn't transfer at all. I don't even need to blot during the day which has never happened for me.

I took off one lippie because the shade range is very limited in Canada where I live but otherwise this foundation rocks!

Lipstick -REVLON -Colorstay Overtime Lipcolor

Some days were good, other days, not so much. It seemed really inconsistent. This is my first liquid lipstick, so I don't have much to compare it to. It doesn't come with much product, and I found that the clear gloss builds up around the seal and if you don't wipe it off it will start to leak out and make a sticky mess.

I've been using it for a month. I did tried applying it a couple different ways to find what would work best, but then I stuck to a regular application routine the rest of the time. I would put on a small amount of chapstick to moisturize my lips a bit and then remove most of it after a few minutes to minimalize how it would affect the lipstick. I'd apply the color in a thin layer (it doesn't work well if you use too much) and then the gloss. It doesn't really layer well. I didn't feel a need to layer it since the color was good, however, if it faded a bit later it the day and I wanted to add more, then sometimes it was a problem.

I got the shade Endless Spice. The color is nice with a bit of shimmer, but I found some days it became patchy and really faded towards to the inside of my lips. And then some days it stayed pretty nice. The lasting power is strong, which is great and it doesn't transfer much. Sometimes there was a really slight burning feeling. Not enough to make me concerned, but enough to notice. It never had any negative impact on my lips.

It's really sticky at first, but after a while it does dry down a bit. It stays just a little sticky. If my hair blew into my face, it would stick to my lips a bit. If you have a habit of touching your lips or rubbing them together, this will not work for you. It will pill up and come right off in gross little chunks. This wasn't much of a problem for me, but I did notice it more if I was eating something that required me to lick anything off my lips.

I won't be buying this again, but it wasn't the worst product.

This foundation got many rave reviews on YouTube so I had to try it. I am 65 with with normal to dry skin at this time of the year. After about a month of trying this using different methods, I have to conclude that this foundation makes my skin look dry and textured. The coverage is about medium and I was able to find a reasonably good match. Finding your shade is a bit tricky as there does not seem to be any logical order to how the shades are arranged and the online swatches are way too dark. I'm NW20 and I bought 240/natural beige. I did experience some oxidation and the staying power was just okay even with setting spray. So disappointed! At $7.99 it is inexpensive enough to give it a try- perhaps it will work for you.

I love this mascara! It has a smooth, creamy texture that glides on my lashes and gives me separated, dark, full and long lashes! I do use it over a lash primer, so I don't know if this affects the ease of application or not. But, I do know that I finally found a Revlon mascara I love.

Lipstick -REVLON -Super Lustrous Lipstick (All Shades)

I really like the formula of these lipstick. It is creamy and not drying. I have warm undertone light skin. I prefer the creme finishes. I own and love rose velvet, teak rose, mauvy night, rum raisin and love is on. The ones that I dislike are plum baby, pink in the afternoon, bare affair, and pink velvet. Plum baby has pearl finish and looks cheap on my lips. Pink in the afternoon is a cool toned which does not look good on me. Bare affair is too light for my skin tone.

Liquid -REVLON -Color Stay Liquid Foundation Combination/Oily

I rated this product pretty highly BUT I have no plans to repurchase due to the terrible shade selection. I was recommended 180 Sand Beige by using Findation and while it looked decent in the bottle, it had a pink cast to it when I put it on. I wish there was a way to get samples of drugstore foundations, and I don't want to keep trying a bottle and then returning it. I like the wear of this, it feels like a true medium coverage foundation. I'm not a fan of "buildable foundations," I don't want to put more of the product on for it to be medium coverage. This is a great budget foundation, and I've found it is definitely long wearing - but some minor touchups will needed for a long day out. I love the pump style and packaging. I'd consider repurchasing in the future but there's so many other foundations out there I'm excited to try, so it won't be anytime soon.

Bad concealer for covering dark under eye circles. Will crease and disappear after 1 hour of wear. Creamy and good for highlighting only.

Heavy duty full coverage that can look cakey if applied in layers. Has a bad strong paint smell and difficult to use from bottle that has no pump. Will last a very long time.

First impression: A little sister to NARS Sheer Glow. It's got the "glow" yet it has medium coverage and it's surprisingly matte.

I like it and I've been testing it now all week. I would say it's not a perfect foundation. But I do like it for daily wear, just not enough or confident in this to be a special foundation for events or the nighttime. I would rate this more accurately as a 3.8.

This foundation does have a pearlescent glow finish. It doesn't blur out lines though and in fact can exaggerate them. I DO NOT recommend the candid concealer because that is horrid for aging eyes with lines. The foundation does the same so a good eye prep is needed with hydration prior to using this. Also (for over 40 girls/guys) do not set your under eye with powder because this is a drying foundation even on my very oily skin. In fact, I don't use powder it set my face at all due to it looking too cakey if I do.

Shades are the same typical shades of Revlon so if you know your Color Stay shade, you'll know this foundation. I'm Natural Tan in this and NC40 Olive

Staying Power: A solid B. It's good but not the best. I want to say Sheer Glow also lasts about the same on me. It won't last more than 9 hours on me before it starts to break down and fade away. Some might say 9 hours is more than enough time but most days, I work 16 hours so it's not the best for my needs.

Camera Okay? Yes, it actually looks very nice on camera. No flashback.

Reactions: Unfortunately, this does irritate my skin a bit. It makes my face slightly itchy and I broke out in a pimple with consistently wearing this for a week.

Mascara -REVLON -Volumazing Mascara

This REVLON VOLUMAZING™ MASCARA was recommended to me by a store clerk. She suggested this one mascara would give my short eyelashes some volume. For me personally it did little to volumeize my short lashes. Making them look clumpy and spidery.

Pro
Washes off well
Suitable for long luscious lashes
Curls ok not great

Cons
I got way too much product on the wand
My lashes look all spidery and
i needed to use a comb to comb lumps out of lashes
Mascara is likely to go dry after three uses
Wand size is OK for long lashes, but short lashes wand is harder to use
Smudges easily

I would not recommend this product for people with short lashes. I bought this mascara on sale for $11.99 and i would not pay for RRP for this mascara

Lipstick -REVLON -Gentlemen Prefer Pink

As cringeworthy as the name of this product is, it's an amazingly perfect pink, which is hard to find anywhere.

Since I searched for years everywhere and finally found it, it's my everyday lip color. I'm 59 and look a bit washed out without anything. I always wear lipstick. One coat of this is MLBB. Two or three quick coats give a nice blue based pink, but not too bright. I literally just held one up to the MUA photo and in real life it is less barbie pink. It is in the "pearl" category of the Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks, but it's not frosty pink at all. Just the right amount. It's not a balm, but it is not drying. It feels good. I absolutely love the packaging. It is as classy as Chanel or any other high end lipstick. Iconic. Without any of the numerous discounts etc, it is under $10 a tube. It deserves recognition in the hall of fame of American products.

I bought this in the frosty version. I am so surprised how flattering this color is. It’s sort of a soft medium pinky red color that many people can probably wear. I have pale, cool tone skin tones and it looks good. I wear it everyday right now and get many compliments. It’s not too flashy or bright but shows up nicely. It can almost be worn as a neutral with some umph to it. I am on my second tube of this and will continue to buy it.

I like it very much. The packaging is simple and a bit luxurious, the shade 180 (sand beige) is perfect for my nc25 skin. Also it lasts a whole day. I do not use it with primer. The formula is like a high end one. It does not oxidizes at all.

This is a great foundation. I have dry sensitive skin with pore and fine lines. This foundation cover great and lasts my work day. It gives my skin a smooth appearance. I doesn’t break me out or make me greasy. I love that it has a pump. I don’t need much for a nice medium coverage. It gives my skin a healthy look.

Eye Shadow -REVLON -ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow

I have this in 715 Espresso, which is a medium taupe with slight shimmer. This is my favorite everyday no fuss product because I just use my finger to apply and it stays on all day with no creasing or fallout. It does apply a bit sheer, but it's buildable and I like to swipe one layer over my lid and lower lash line then pack on one or two more in my outer corner. This shade is nowhere near as glittery as most in the line but has just enough shimmer to make it dimensional but still work/school appropriate. You do need to use a primer/concealer base though otherwise it starts to fade after a few hours.
