Well Boopers we’re one month into Spring already and what better time to update your makeup collection than now? I recently treated myself to some new products from Revlon which I think would make great additions to your Spring makeup bag. “Click to View Post” under the image to continue reading…
Spring makeup for me is all about adding pastels and brighter shades to your everyday look. It’s all about that floral, girly ambience and I picked up these first two products from Revlon for this exact reason. I’ll start this haul by saying Revlon isn’t one of my go-to makeup brands like Urban Decay or Benefit which I’m always raving on about but when I popped into Boots back in January there was a tempting little 3-for-2 offer on the Revlon cosmetics stand which I simply couldn’t resist. I’d also heard lots of positive things about the Revlon Lip Butters so it was about time I had a little try.
I went for a pastel pink shade from the ColorBurst Lip Butters range – 090 Sweet Tart. I’ve worn this quite a bit and although I’m usually not a fan of creamy lipstick textures I rather liked this one. You can see how it looked in this Instagram photo. I think the packaging is quite cute too. Back when I was shopping for these products I was really lusting after the Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick and this Revlon offering looked like a great dupe. At a fraction of the price (especially when the Boots 3-for-2 is involved). After using the Revlon highlighter in shade – 020 Rose Glow – over the past few weeks I can safely say I love it. I’ve found that it doubles as a bronzer/blush product which is great for packing light and travelling. If you use your blusher brush on the lower section of the powders there is more of a bronze effect and I’ve found this great for contouring. I then use the upper section of the powder to add some rosy shimmer to my cheeks. Be warned though, it is super shimmery 🙂 but I do love a bit of shimmer! You can build it up depending on whether it’s a day or evening makeup look you’re going for. The final Revlon product I picked up was the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in shade – 005 Parisian Passion. Now this is a little dark for Spring but as it’s quite mositurising and has a glistening shine to it I think this is the perfect ‘darker Spring shade‘. You might have seen when I wore this shade to the office recently in this Instagram photo. I usually wouldn’t wear such a dark shade to the office but this moisture-stain is so long-wearing it really lasted up until lunchtime which was great! It’s also really good for the indoor A/C office environment as it keeps your lips moisturised. I can definitely visualise myself adding some more shades from the Colorstay Moisture Stain collection.
