I went to a Revlon event over a month or so ago and left with a bunch of fun, new (to me) goodies to try out. Some of the products are new and some aren’t but I wanted to share a little bit about them and my thoughts after testing each product to let you know what some of the highlights and lowlights are.
First, let’s talk about their eye products! Revlon has come out with the ColorStay Brow Crayon ($9.50 / Available at Walmart & Mass Retailers), which comes in four shades (Dark Brown is featured here) and offers long wearing colour (up to 24 hours) that defines and shapes your brows in a single sweep. Then, we’ve got the new ColorStay 2 in 1 Angled Kajal that also comes in four shades (Onyx is featured here) which come in a waterproof formula in an angled kajal tip on one side and a smudge brush on the other so you can smoke out the liner before it sets.

Next is the ColorStay Creme Eye Shadow that come in 12 luxurious colours (Praline 730 is featured here) that come with a built in brush for a mess-free application that lasts up to 24 hours.

For the lips, we have the ColorStay Lip Liner ($9 / Available at Walmart & Mass Retailers) in Red, which also comes in eight other colours, and adds a defined, long lasting look to you lips that doesn’t feather or bleed. The ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipsticks ($11.50 / Available at Walmart & Mass Retailers) offer a velvety smooth formula that contains shea butter and aloe that come in 20 shades (Muse is featured here) that last through dinner and drinks.

Last but not least, Revlon has launched a set of luxurious brushes that are uniquely designed for the ultimate professional application with their comfortable diamond grip handles and ExpertFX brush heads. I was able to get my hands on the Blending Brush ($19.99 / Available at Walmart & Mass Retailers), a dual fiber brush that provides a steak-free, even application.
My Glittery Thoughts:
I’ve heard a lot of good things about Revlon ColorStay products and have tried a couple things before from them so it was exciting to see how long wearing these products really are. I love creme eyeshadows and how well the ColorStay one wears. It’s easy to blend once you lay it down but it sets pretty quickly, so you have to work fast. I’m definitely interested in picking up more neutral shades because I like how long they make my eye makeup last. I’m not a fan of the brush it comes with because it’s a little scratchy so I prefer using my own brushes with it. I’m a fan of the fun fuchsia pink Ultimate Suede lipstick. It goes on really creamy at first so I wasn’t sure about it lasting long initially but it blew me away with how well it wears even though it doesn’t dry down fully. It’s very comfortable and moisturizing but still smudge proof, which I love. I think both the lip liner and the kajal liner are nice and very pigmented but you have to work quickly with them. The lip liner is a little drying and I prefer putting it down all over my lips so when whatever lipstick I’m wearing comes off, I won’t be left with a weird red ring around my lips.
Unfortunately, there were some products that didn’t work as well for me. I was really looking forward to the Blending Brush but found out very quickly that it sheds pretty badly and I kept having to pick the hairs off my face as I was using the brush. The other product that disappointed was the Brow Crayon. Aside from it being too dark for me, the crayon is way too creamy and slides everywhere. I couldn’t set it with powder without having to take it off and put something else on my brows instead. Brow pencils and crayons need to have a bit of dryness to them so they can stay in place and adhere to your brows, which I unfortunately didn’t get with this one.
I’m definitely interested in picking up a couple more creme eyeshadows and possible some lipsticks because they were very easy to apply and wear. Have you guys tried any of these products out for yourself?! I’d love to know your thoughts!
