    Revlon ColorSilk

    Black and Blue Black

    I went to this after I no longer had a job and wanted to save money. The pros: The black shades are beautiful, blue black is a very deep, intense black, not blue but the darkest black I have found. Regular black is slightly less intense, regular black shade, not brownish black either. The black shades do fade a bit but not nearly as much as any other brand, the color stays shiny and just becomes (for me) more natural. I really love that this doesn't have that horrible chemical smell, instead a sort of masculine scent, like deodorant or something. The cons: The scrubbing you will have to give your bathtub after wards. And the fact that you cannot rinse this color out in 5 minutes or ten, or really even an hour. You just have to give up and keep having grey suds from your shampoo for the next week and a half. I have also dyed my hair burgundy ant none of the above happened, so I assume it is just the dark/black shades Unfortunately for Burgundy it faded like crazy and lasted only a week or so . The bottom line: I will continue to use this as I love the colors and the cheap price, and thus will have to accept that I will have to scrub the tub after the dye rinses out.

    Revlon Luxurious Color Perle Eyeshadow

    Gorgeous colors, silky feel

    I just got two of these in Riviera Blue and Vintage Lace. They go on so silky and smooth and are gorgeous! The colors are very rich and pigmented so what you see in the package is what you will see on your eyelid. I recommend these if you need a break from shimmer but still want something other than neutrals. These started out a little pricey for my taste but recently the price went down to $3.88 at Walmart, which isn't a bad price at all for this kind of quality.

    Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner

    My favorite longwearing eyeliner

    Best long wearing pencil liner I have tried! I got this in a Walmart set that included a Revlon Eyeshadow quad and mascara. I got the set mainly because of the quad and assumed the liner would be a wash. I didn't even know it was waterproof. I tried it and found it to go on very smooth and neat, and discovered at the end of the day after washing my makeup off that the liner was still partially there! I was pretty impressed with that and am going to purchase more. I normally refuse to pay more than 3 dollars on eyeliner but this isn't that much more expensive and really is worth more than the money I wasted on inexpensive brands.

    REvlon Illuminance Creme Shadow

    I make them work anyway

    Cream eyeshadows for oily skin is not a good idea but the colors were so pretty I tried these anyway. One way I wear these is over a primer and then a thin layer of Jane's Loose Iridescent powder over them. It lasts pretty long this way. You could probably try these with another powder that doesn't have sparkles in it. The only problem with this method is it is a little more time consuming. The other way is to use them as a base for powder eyeshadows, which can make for some pretty combinations. It does bother me that it didn't come with an applicator, so I either have to buy one or make sure to wash my hands! It is very creamy and easy to blend. This would work best on someone with dry or at least not so oily lids.

  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

    The range of colors and finishes on these lipsticks are great. If you like pink but not sparkly there is bound to be a color for you. I haven't noticed any obnoxious smells with this lipstick as I do my L'oreal lipsticks, which I love but I abhor the smell of. This lipstick applies very smoothly however the color is not as long lasting compared to less-moisturizing lipsticks, but not a problem for me. The price is great on these as well. My shade is a great bluish violet shade that is surprisingly wearable.

    Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss

    Pretty colors and shine but a bit gooey.

    The only reason I will knock a couple stars off this product is it is a bit thicker and gooier than I like. It feels a bit like Vaseline on but is also good because it saves dry lips. The colors however are very pretty and sophisticated, and the shine is really fantastic. I too, have Glossy Rose and I think it may be universally flattering. I have olive/beige skin and this adds a subtle hint of color to my lips. The only other thing I don't like is it has no smell or taste to it, which can be good but a little boring to me.

    Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm

    Uneven and doesn't stay put.

    This product was a disappointment for me. I had difficulty making the color go on evenly in the first place even when using a lip brush. But then everytime I even thought about moving my lips the color would rub off in spots and become uneven again. It would just not stay put! The only positive thing I could say about this is that the colors were pretty.

    Jergens Soothing Aloe Moisturizer

    Nice, basic everyday lotion.

    I received a sample of this product. This lotion is fast absorbing and non greasy, which will make it perfect for summertime when heavy lotions just feel uncomfortable. It actually works well now in the cold weather but may not if you have super dry skin. So far it has been working pretty well on my hands that tend to get the driest due to all the hand washing. The scent is light and fresh and doesn't seem to compete with other fragrances you may have on. All in all, a nice everyday lotion.

  • CoverGirl CG Smoothers BB Cream

    This feels like a light moisturizer, great for when your skin is dry. It has very little color to it meaning very little coverage,but is great if you don't like the feeling of a mask on your face. It helps even out skintone and also has SPF. I use this and some concealer to cover up spots not covered by the moisturizer. It is cheaper than Neutragena's similar product and works better as well.

  • Urban Decay Stardust Eyeshadow

    I am still learning how to use this eyeshadow, but so far I like it. UD recommends applying with your finger for a more intense look, or a wet brush. I expected the color to be a very sheer gray but is actually pretty pigmented when applied using their methods. And the sparkle is unlike any other sparkly eyeshadow, I would wear this at night to get the best effect as it really does seem to have a rainbowish, glistening sparkle. These do have some fall out but I expect that from any glittery eyeshadow, I just got into the habit of doing foundation after eyeshadow. Also, be careful not to overblend, the sparkle and color will disappear.
