Revlon Colorburst matte balm Sultry
http://www.revlon.com/products/lips/lip-color/colorburst-matte-balm#309975726152||0

MRP: Rs.800 for 2.7g
Texture: Creamy Matte

Description on Revlon’s website:
Vibrant colors infused with a Triple Butter Complex give you a bold, beautiful lip. It’s a burst of matte color with a balm-like feel. Go bold and get moisturized in 10 craveable, collectible shades.

Features:

  • Velvety color + balm-like moisture
  • Infused with a Triple Butter Complex of shea, mango, and coconut butter
  • Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required

Color: Sultry is a brown-pink color with hints of plum, the color looks too sober and mature on the bullet but on lips it looks very pretty pink. This color is ideal for everyday wear and will look great on medium to dark complexion.

Formula: It has matte formula but is not a drying matte. It glides smoothly on lips unlike other matte lipsticks but slightly accentuate the fine lines.

Fragrance: It has minty fragrance and i felt the cooling sensation on my lips while applying it, although it doesn’t stay for long.

Pigmentation: It is highly pigmented and covers the lips in one swipe only. You can further build the color if you wish to and it doesn’t look patchy. I applied two swipes in the pictures below.

My Experience: I love the formula, the application is really smooth and provides a perfect finish. Applying a lip balm underneath would be a wise decision as it is a matte lipstick after all and lips feel dry after few hours. It is a perfect color for office going ladies, not over the top and not too dull. But i wish the longevity be a little more, it does not survive meals and you need to do touch up afterwards which is quiet a turn off for me. On me it had a wear time of 4 hours (without meals). But nonetheless it is a great color with very good formula.

Pros:
Beautiful color
Great pigmentation
Creamy texture which glides smoothly on lips
Not too drying
Twist up crayon hence no product wastage

Cons:
Not so good wear time.
Slightly accentuate the lip lines
Dries the lips after few hours so it is advisable to apply a lip balm underneath.

Rating: I will give it 3.5/5

Love,
PJK

Color
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor Addiction is a beautiful Rosy Mauve Shade which is perfect for this summer season. Infact all the 8 colours in this range are happy, summery and bright 🙂

Is it MATTE? Those who are expecting this range to be dry/fully matte(obvious fact we expect from liquid lipsticks) will be disappointed, but once you get over that fact, it is a pretty decent collection. Moreover Revlon has no where mentioned in their marketing campaign that these are Dry Matte, they have branded this range as VELVETY MATTE LIPCOLOR. So, those who are expecting to have effortless dry matte finish, DO NOT GO FOR THIS RANGE.

Formula: The Formula is creamy and moisturising. Unlike other Matte products, HD Addiction is very easy to reapply. It works like a dream 🙂 HD Addiction is insanely pigmented, just one swipe and you are good to go.

Fragrance: Oops…fragrance may be a turn off for ladies with sensitive nose. HD Addiction smells like cherry cough syrup. Honestly speaking I don’t mind the fragrance but it is really strong, so ladies firstly smell it and then buy 😉

Longevity: HD Addiction lasts really long, I had a full meal in between the wear time and there was just a slight fading from the inner corner of the lips which is not noticeable.

Does it Transfer? Yup, being this a velvety matte lipcolor, it transfers to cups and glasses whenever you drink something.

Rating: 4/5. If you get over the fact of this being not a Drying matte Liquid Lipstick, I am sure you will like it. I do 🙂 It keeps the lips soft, supple and moisturised through out the wear time. Price is a negative factor and I think it is too steep, so I do not see myself buying other colours from this range.

This is how HD Addiction looks on me.

Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick Spiced Up-swatch
It is not every day that I come across a Revlon Product which I genuinely love to the core of my heart. The last time I loved a Revlon Product was from Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick Range. You can read the review here.Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick Spiced Up have all the qualities that I look in a Lipstick- Matte texture, beautiful color, long staying power and affordable price. 

Revlon has recently added 5 more colors in Super Lustrous Matte Lipsticks and one of them is Spiced Up. I will be posting the swatches of other colors soon.

My Experience:

Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick Spiced Up is a beautiful Maroon Color with dark brow undertones. It is a dark vampy color perfect for Fall season. The texture of Revlon Spiced Up is Creamy Matte and glides smoothly and evenly on Lips. I would always prefer creamy matte texture over powdery matte, one more reason to why I love this Lipstick. The formula is drying but it does not suck the moisture from the lips for atleast 5 hours, after which you may need to apply a lip balm. Spiced Up is very pigmented shade and provides full coverage in 1 swipe, you may need 2 swipes to cover and even out the color. This is one such shade which brightens your complexion instantly, the color is classy and the finish is Superb. Kudos to Revlon for giving us such a Perfect Matte Lipstick in an affordable price.

I had a wear time of 6-7 hours without the need of touch up. After long hours of wear time it started to fade away from corner and centre of the lips.

Summing up the Pros and Cons for you.

Pros:

  1. Beautiful color perfect for Fall Season.
  2. Creamy Matte.
  3. Not too drying.
  4. Superbly pigmented.
  5. Smooth Application.
  6. Long Wearing.
  7. Affordable.

Cons:

  1. Same old boring packaging. Revlon really needs to think about revamping the packaging.

Rating: 5/5. Love Love and Love this beautiful Lipstick. I will be adding more colors in my collection.

Revlon Ultra HD lipstick – Poinsettia review and swatches

Revlon ultra HD lipstick – Poinsettia

MRP: Rs. 1,100

I was waiting for the launch of Revlon HD lipsticks in India as I was very intrigued with the idea of HD lipsticks and their gel like formula. I had visited the store and tried almost all the colors including the one Emma Stone is wearing in the print ad but I was disappointed when lip color looked very much different on me. Nonetheless I chose a very beautiful and bringer red shade called Poinsettia.

As far as the HD quality finish is concerned, the HD in beauty world means flawless. So i am assuming it to be flawless color and smooth finish.

Another drawback is that the lipstick does not swivel completely down so when each time I put the cap down I end up taking a bit of lipstick with it. Very baddd 🙁

Description: Revolutionary wax-free gel technology for true color clarity in one smooth swipe. Available in 20 high-definition shades.

Features:  Revlon patent-pending wax-free gel technology delivers true color clarity without the heavy feel.
• High definition color in one smooth swipe.
• Available in 20 high-definition shades.

Tag Line: The tag line is “True Color Clarity without the heavy Feel” and  I totally agree to this, it feels so light and feather like on lips.

Packaging: The Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks come in reflective/transparent silver tubes with clear plastic caps.

Revlon ultra hd lipstick-Poinsettia-packaging

Revlon ultra hd lipstick-Poinsettia-bullet

Color: Poinsettia is vibrant shade of red with blue undertone.

Revlon ultra hd lipstick-Poinsettia-swatch

Revlon ultra HD lipstick poinsettia

Formula/Texture: The texture is very light, creamy and smooth. Lipstick glides very smoothly on the lips giving them a very even finish. The formula is hydrating as well, it does not make the lips dry but it is always advisable to use lip balm underneath lipstick if you have dry lips. Poinsettia HD lipstick is very forgiving on my lips, it does not highlight the dry or flakiness.

Application: The tip of the lipstick is flat and wide so it was hard for me to get the precise application around the top of the upper lip and corners of the lips.

Revlon ultra hd lipstick-Poinsettia-application

Pigmentation: 2 swipes gives the good color coverage but if you have very pigmented lips then it may not cover them fully.

revlon ultra HD lipstick-fotd

Longevity: Poinsettia HD lipstick stayed on me for 4-5 hours and it definitely needs touch-up/reapplication after meal.

Pros:

  1. True to its claim the lipstick offers flawless finish and feels very light on lips.
  2. Beautiful red shade which is ideal for regular/ office wear.
  3. Buttery smooth texture.
  4. Good moisturising ability.
  5. Nicely pigmented.
  6. Good color pay off.

Cons:

  1. Very average packaging.
  2. The bullet shape is not ideal for application.
  3. Fragrance is too strong but then it fades away after some time.

My Verdict: True to its claim it feels very light on lips, full points to Revlon for that. I just wish it had more staying power.

Rating: 4.5/5.

Revlon colorstay foundation-oil skin

revlon colorstay foundation-oily skin

Description on Revlon Website:
Longwearing coverage with Time Release Technology and a lightweight formula that won’t cake, fade, or rub off. Specifically made for combination or oily skin to control oil absorption and shine. Your look stays flawless throughout the day.

Features:
• Comfortable, shine-free finish for up to 24 hours
• 20 beautiful, longwearing shades
• Buildable to full coverage

We have heard a lot about this foundation due to its oil control quality, i however swear by my MAC Studio Fix  but lately i have noticed that my skin tone has lightened a bit and MAC Studio Fix was looking a bit dark on me. So i thought to start searching a foundation for oily skin as my skin turns really oily during summer season. We both did some research and finally settled upon Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination/Oily Skin.

Packaging: The Revlon Foundation come in a glass bottle with a black pump. For maintaining the Hygiene the pump is closed/covered with a cap. The pump dispenses a small amount and the flow is very easy to control.

revlon colorstay 24 hour foundation-packaging

Color: I picked the color Sand Beige which i think is one tone light for me but goes perfectly with PJK’s skin tone. Revlon provides 20 color variants to choose from, very impressive.

revlon colorstay foundation-sand beige

Texture: The texture is not runny but it dries quickly, so you have to make sure to spread it fast so as to get the even finish. It settles quickly but i didn’t had any problem, i applied it using Real technique buffing brush. It also contains SPF(15).

Application: As i said above as texture sets very quickly on the skin so you need to quickly work on the foundation. The ideal way of application is using BRUSH, i used Real Technique BUFFING BRUSH.

Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination-Oily Skin

Coverage: It provides medium coverage, for heavy coverage a concealer is recommended to use with it. See the swatches below:

revlon colorstar makeup- swatch

Revlon Colorstay foundation-swatch

Longevity: It stayed on me for good 8-9 hours. True to its claim, it does control the oil and i am very impressed with the finish it gives. Oil control and matte finish is what makes it ideal for summers.

Pros:

  1. Sun Protection- Contains SPF15.
  2. 20 Color variants to choose from.
  3. Nice and sturdy Packaging.
  4. Application is easy if applied with brush.
  5. Controls the Oil.
  6. It doesn’t look Cakey.
  7. Long Lasting.
  8. Good Coverage.
  9. Shelf life of 3 years

Cons:

  1. Settles very quickly so blending with hands can be an issue. However with Brush it applies smoothly.
  2. Glass Packaging-prone to breakage.

My Verdict: I am in LOVE with it !! very ideal foundation for summer season. SPF15, oil control and matte finish, all three things in one foundation. Totally Recommend it.

Rating: 4.5/5. Half mark deducted for its tendency to settle quickly.

Revlon Colorburst Matte balm Striking review and swatches

Revlon Colorburst Matte balm Striking

revlon striking

revlon-striking

I am hooked with Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Sultry and religiously using it from some time now. The soft matte texture of sultry inclined me to check other colors in this range. I zeroed down Striking because I was looking for a mild red color lipstick. Let’s see how this one fairs.

Description on Revlon’s website:
Vibrant colors infused with a Triple Butter Complex give you a bold, beautiful lip. It’s a burst of matte color with a balm-like feel. Go bold and get moisturized in 10 craveable, collectible shades.

Features:

  • Velvety color + balm-like moisture
  • Infused with a Triple Butter Complex of shea, mango, and coconut butter
  • Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required

MRP: Rs.800 for 2.7g

Color: Mild red color with a slight hint of orange. The color looked very pretty when I swatched it on my hand but on lips it came out entirely different. On my lips it came out as very light red shade as if I had applied a glossy balm instead of matte balm.

IMG_2595

Texture: The texture is balmy and glossy. On hand it looks uniform but as soon as you apply it on lips you will see little uneven chunks or color fragments laying on the lips.

Fragrance: It has minty fragrance and i felt the cooling sensation on my lips while applying it, although it doesn’t stay for long.

Application: It is smooth to apply and glides nicely on the lips. But It highlights fine lines and dry and chapped lips. You definitely needs to scrub and moisturize the lips prior to the application.

Pigmentation: In hand swatch you will see a very warm and mild red shade but on lips it miserably fails to give the opaque coverage. The color coverage is very very poor and disappointing. I felt like banging my head when I had applied it for the first time and after an hour or so my colleague commented on the greasy chunks clinging on my lips. If you have pigmented lips this shade is not for you.

swatch
Top one is Sultry and bottom one is Striking.

Longevity: I had a wear time of 2-3 hours with drinking sips of water and no eating. It fades unevenly and leaves a disappointing red tint behind which doesn’t look good.

Pros:

  • Nice color

Cons: 

  • Disappointing texture
  • Accentuate the dryness on lips
  • Light color coverage
  • Unflattering uneven fragments shows on lips after some time.
  • Poor wear time considering the price
  • No value for money
  • Fades unevenly

My verdict: I am very dissatisfied with Revlon matte striking. Disappointing texture, poor color coverage and wear time and uneven finish. I will not recommend this to anyone. It seems like I wasted my hard earned money on this product.

Rating: 1/5. One point just for color.

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Autumn Spice, Wintermint Review and Swatch

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Autumn Spice and Wintermint

http://www.revlon.com/products/nails/nail-color/revlon-parfumerie-scented-nail-enamel#309974901079||0

The day I heard about these scented nail enamels I could not resist myself and purchased them online from Flipkart and got them delivered the very next day.

Today I am reviewing two shades from this range.

1. Autumn spice: It is a dark brown color with hint of golden and slight pink shimmers. It is a really beautiful color.

2. Wintermint: It is a minty green color with blue glitters and gold shimmer. I found these blend of colors really unique.

MRP: Rs. 350

Product description on Revlon Website:

A whole new way to experience color. Vibrant shiny shades go on smoothly for flawless color and then dry to light, irresistible fragrances.

Features:

Light fragrance revealed when dry

Light fragrance lasts all day

Available in 24 scented colors

Packaging: perfume inspired square bottle with black bulb cap.

Brush: Standard size brush.

Autumn spice

_DSC0620

_DSC0580

Color: Dark brown color with hint of golden and slight pink shimmers. Perfect color for winters.

Formula: It has a very smooth formula which is neither too runny nor too dense.

Opacity: It is very opaque, provides full coverage in one coat.

Dry time: Dry time is considerable, it took 8-10 minutes for two coats to dry completely.

Scent: I got the faint smell of cinnamon and vanilla.

Longevity: Regretfully the wear time is not so good. It started chipping from the tips within a day and color also started looking very dull. I am very disappointed with the wear time.

Removal: Easy to remove and leaves no stains.

My Vedrict: I am not satisfied with autumn spice, there is no doubt about the color but wear time is very disappointing.

My Rating: 1.5/5

Wintermint

_DSC0585

_DSC0617

Color: A minty green color with mix of blue and mint glitters. The combination is blended with golden shimmer.

Formula: Formula is little on runny side may be due to precise application of glitters. The even and smooth texture helps the glitters to disperse evenly on nails.

Opacity: Very translucent in first coat, you can build up the color in 3 coats.

Dry time: Dry time is considerable, it took 10-12 minutes for two coats to dry completely.

Longevity: Good wear time. It stayed on me intact for 5 days.

Removal: Difficult to remove like all glitter nail paints. Leaves no stains behind.

My verdict: The color is beautiful and so is the finish. I love how the glitters disperse evenly on the nails. Wear time is good as well.

Rating: 4.5/5 I wish the removal process of glitter nail paints are easy.
