Review: Revlon products00:33
Hey hey! :)
This last weekend I had a chance to pick up some Revlon products. Most of them were my first purchase. I wanted to share my thoughts with you on this brand.
I bought PhotoReady Perfecting Primer, ColorStay foundation for combination/oily skin, ColorStay concealer and my-most-happy-new-purchase Colorburst Lip Butter.
Revlon Colorstay Foundation (around 13 €)
Revlon ColorStay foundation has been my friend for a few years. I already spoke about this foundation here. Just to recap I love this foundation because it has a medium to full coverage and it lives up to its name-color stay. I like to put it on the back of my hand and use a foundation brush with it. By the time I finish, I have real difficulties removing it. If you wish for a staying foundation-that's it. It can get a bit cakey though.
Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer (around 16 €)
The problem is resolved if you use their Photoready Perfecting Primer. I used it twice and I love it. I feel that my foundation and make up stays on a lot longer than it did before. I never used any primer before, so I am very happy I have this one. I wanted to buy it for such a long time, but couldn't get it. I highly recommend it for any occasions when you want your foundation to stay put. It also makes a nice skin base for the foundation, which goes on smoother and looks nicer. You need very little and I mean VERY little for the whole face. In the packaging is white and it becomes transparent when you put it on. The package is glass with plastic pump and plastic top. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the smell. The smell is, well, nothing nice, nothing floral or fruity, but more of an acid smell of wall paint or something from that department. In my consolation, that is probably more natural, since it doesn't have any additional perfumes:).
Revlon ColorStay Concealer (around 7 €)
The next thing I got to match with my foundation was ColorStay concealer. I saw only three shades of this and picked up the lightest. It was the right color for me. It is lighter than my foundation, which I like, since I want to cover up darker spots on my face. It has a yellow undertone, which was surprising. My foundation is more or less a neutral undertone more greyish than yellow or pink. The consistency is pretty thick and it covers nicely. I love that it looks like a lip gloss, because it is very easy to use and very nice to have in the bag on the go. The smell is in the Revlon "range" :). I find that their ColorStay concealer and foundation smell like clay. I don't have a problem with it, as long as the product is good. The packaging is plastic.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter (around 10 €)
The least and most exciting thing I purchased was my first ever Revlon Lip Butter in 095 Creme Brulee. First of all that is not a lip butter. It is a lipstick. It is a bit sheerer than some of the lipsticks, but still it's lipstick. The only thing that lives up to the name butter is the feeling on the lips. It sits nicely on the lips and it gives a feeling of moisture. It doesn't stick into the lines and it has a pretty good coverage. My color is a perfect nude for me with what looks like multi shimmer in it. You can built up the intensity of color. I am very pleased with it because they have a nice range of colors, it feels nicely moisturizing on the lips and it has a very slight subtle smell . I can't explain the smell, but is definitely nothing invasive. The only thing I don't like is the packaging. In my opinion the handle to open it up is too small. It's the same problem I don't like with Maybelline lipsticks.
