Revlon Spring Makeup

I’ve been experimenting with some of Revlon’s latest and greatest makeup this spring to get a look that is perfect for the office. Work makeup is one of those weird things that no ever thinks they are good at. We all look at someone else who looks more put together every day.

I am starting with the Revlon Photoready Insta-Filter Foundation. I like this foundation in theory. It’s light and thin. My only issue is that you need to use the attached sponge on top to apply it, like a beauty blender. After a few uses, the sponge gets dirty and I’m not sure I can clean it without getting water in the makeup. I wish that Revlon had just provided a separate sponge. The foundation itself gives good light, natural coverage.

I really like the Revlon Color Charge Liquid Illuminator. The Halo colour gives a great highlighting shine. It’s not sparkly or glossy, it is just highlighted. It also lasts for a long time, so my face stays looking highlighted.

The Revlon Colorstay Exactify Liquid Liner is one of the most interesting and innovative eyeliners that I have seen in a long time. It’s a regular liquid liner, but there is no regular brush applicator. Instead Revlon has made a little wheel. You roll this wheel across your eye lid to apply the colour. It’s actually very easy. My only issue is that it’s difficult to get thick, full lines. The makeup doesn’t always stick to the wheel, so you have to go over it three or four times. The black was fine, but the Mulberry shade was very light.

Finally, there was the for when I wanted to ramp things up. The sheer Holographic colour allowed me to wear it to work without being inappropriate. It has high shine. At night it would be great to add sparkle to any eye shadow.

Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain Review


Lip stains were really popular two years ago, but lately everything has been either glossy lips or classic matte lipstick. Revlon is bringing back the stain with their ColorStay Moisture Stain.

Revlon’s ColorStay Moisture Stain goes on like a lip gloss. It’s thick, but smooth. The colors seem dark, but they go on thin. This means they can be suitable for everything from a day in the office to a night on the town.

The lip stain dries quickly leaving you with dry matte lips packed with colour. You can leave this look or add a gloss over top for a patent appearance. Personally, I am a huge fan of the matte stain.

There is only one problem with Revlon’s ColorStay Stain and it’s the colour staying part. The stain doesn’t last as long as some others. The great rich colour seems to fade fast. Now you need to decide if you want colour now or long lasting for later.
