I Recently picked up a few bits from Cara Pharmacy which are all Revlon Products, I know some of these products have been around for a long time and I am a tad late on the bang wagon for some of them, but hey its better late than never :).
1. Revlon Colour burst Lip Butter.
These Lip Butters have been around for quite some time now but I really wanted to try them back then and never got round to purchasing them , I then forgot about them for a while so now I am finally trying them out . I picked up 2 shades which are 045 Cotton candy and 080 Strawberry Shortcake. First of all what I really like about these is the packaging, They have a transparent case which is the colour of the lipstick, They also have a little clear plastic square at the top which allows you to see the shade of the lipstick.
Cotton Candy is a light frosty pink which isn’t very pigmented but I can tell by the consistency that it will be very moisturising and a nice natural flush of colour on the lips. I expected this shade to be a lot more of a candy pink mainly because of the name and the colour of the packaging but it doesn’t come out the same way when swatched.
Strawberry shortcake is a lot more pigmented than Cotton Candy, this shade would be a beautiful everyday pink shade. It also has a slight blue undertone which will make your teeth appear whiter. This shade is less shimmery than Cotton Candy.
2. Revlon Colour stay Ultimate Suede Lipstick.
Lipsticks are my weakness, I will never have enough no matter how hard I try. This year I am really excited about autumn/winter because it means darker lipstick and layering! I love dark purple and red lipsticks. This shade is 035 Backstage. It is a beautiful dark maroon shade, It has a glossy finish which makes this lipstick more wearable because it isn’t as pigmented as a matte lipstick would be. This Lipstick was €3 which is amazing value for a Revlon lipstick.
3. Revlon 16Hr Eye shadow Quad.
I have tried Revlon eye shadows in the past and loved them so I picked up this quad in the shade 500 Addictive.This is a neutral based palette which has a light cream shade with specks of silver glitter in it, a light taupe shade with silver glitter in it, a medium toned brown which has a satin finish and a dark matte brown. This palette is the prefect palette if you are starting off with make up and you want a palette with a few shades for everyday wear, this palette is also perfect for travelling because it is small and compact. This palette was €4 which is very affordable.
4. Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara.
This item was a re-purchase as I had it a few months back but I hadn’t seen it for a while so when I saw it I picked it up, I love this mascara so much it gives my lashes volume and length and it doesn’t go clumpy on the lashes. This mascara was €3.
And thats it for this weeks post. I may have some more surprise posts during the week so keep a look out for those and as always Thanks for reading :).
