New Releases From Revlon!

Sunday, March 17, 2013
I noticed some new Revlon products on the Superdrug site so I went in to a Superdrug store yesterday and I found some new Revlon products that I had never seen before (well I saw the lipstick on American bloggers sites but never in the UK). I bought three things as they were having a 3 for 2 on all Revlon products in store. 
The first product I bought is the Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in the shade 200 Pink Light (30ml). I saw this online and I knew I wanted to try it but I didn't know what I would look like without going into a store. The tester for this product wouldn't open so I bought it not knowing what it would look like. I was really surprised when I tried it on the back of my hand in the car that it is very very pink - it is a metallic pink shade! It looks a hell of a lot pinker in 'real life' than in the photograph above. I have pink undertones in my skin and this was the only one I could get as there was also a bronze one. Despite the very pink metallic look of the illuminator I like it so far. I have tried it on the back of my hand and it looks like a gorgeous slightly pinky sheen, it isn't as metallic pink when blended. Overall, I like the packaging (twist the lid, don't pull) and it looks pretty so far but we will see. 
The second item I bought was the new Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in the shade Socialite 025. I had a difficult time choosing which shade to buy and all of the 'testers' had stickers over them so you couldn't open the testers! I picked the one that looked the most natural but it turned out to be a bright rosy pink which is a lot brighter, lighter and pinker than I thought it would be - a bit of a shocker but I have tried it on my lips twice and I love the application, the shade makes my complexion look a lot freshers and the wear is fantastic! Full review soon (Spoilers: I will have to get some more of these!)
The last item, which was free as it was 3 for 2, was the new Revlon Colorstay Concealer in the shade 02 Light Pale. I could have gone with the lighter shade but they didn't have it in store, this was the lightest available at the time. I used the Revlon Colorstay Foundation in the shade 'buff' for at least a year and I loved it (the dry skin version) so I thought I would love this. But I am not that impressed, it has good coverage (light to medium) and it blends nicely but it is a bit caky under my eyes. In hindsight I should have picked up two of the lipsticks instead of the concealer as I love the formula of the lipsticks but I didn't know I would love them. Overall, may be skip this concealer and just get the lipsticks!

  11. Yeah that is a really pink shade - I would have thought it would be more of a light base coverage (not so pink) - thanks for the review!
