I am well into holiday mode now and this may well be my last post for the year, unless I get a sneaky quiet day. I bought these Revlon items some time back and they are all things I’ve wanted to try for a long time now.
After consulting a few of my favourite bloggers I settled on the Revlon colorstay foundation for combination skin over the Stay Active. I’ve used it a few times now and I’m quite happy with it.
It melts into skin and gives medium coverage. I use the shade True Beige although at the rate I’m tanning this will soon be too light for me. The one issue I have is the packaging. There is no pump and the wide open mouth makes a fat mess which is going to send my OCD over the edge.
Let’s talk about this highlighting palette. I’m having a moment with highlighters. I got this one in bronze glow, it’s also available in a peach and pink glow. I love this too much, it is so fine and delivers the perfect glow that also looks great in photographs. These are limited edition so if you’re keen best move it.
Last but not least Revlon have their matte and lacquer balms as well as their balm stains on a two for one offer. You will find the offer at Clicks, Dischem, Edgars and Tuworths. The matte balms come as two of the same which is a bit of a bummer. The balm stains, which I went for, all come with the same shade free which is their most popular shade; honey.
This was great news for me because Honey is the shade I was really after anyway. It is a flattering darker pink/ mink shade and will suit most skin tones. I got Romantic along with it which is a beautiful red shade. The balm stains are probably my favourite of the balms.
I’m still adjusting to the feel of mattes and making them comfortable for me and the lacquers are my least liked of the three. The lacquers just have too much sparkle for my liking and all three types have that minty scent I love. These will make awesome stocking fillers and you can keep one for yourself while you’re at it :P
