I have to admit I am a bit of a makeup snob. I like what I like, and generally what I like are high end professional products. People are often asking what a good makeup that they can get at the local grocery/drug store. I generally don’t have a recommendation seeing that I’ve never tried most things ( except for Lash Blast – Covergirl, it’s a consistent favorite of mine)
I recently had the honor of participating as a makeup artist for Elle Magazine featuring Revlon makeup. Revlon provided all the makeup and we performed “mini makeovers” for the women of Dallas. The experience of using strictly Revlon products let me try and test most of things in their line and I’m proud to say I now have some recommendations!
My Favorite Revlon products:
Photo Ready Eye Primer plus Brightener - This product has a neat little brush attached which makes applying it easy. It’s a great base for creating a smooth palette before eyeshadow application, it also gives your eye color staying power. A word of caution: Once you’ve twisted it to dispense the product, be patient, it comes out slowly and if you keep twisting and twisting till you see product you might have a whole lot of product spewing out.
Photo Ready 3D Volume Mascara- I’ve been into the same mascara for years so it’s hard for me to give others a fair chance, but this mascara did not disappoint. With the design of the brush it’s almost impossible to get clumpy lashes which is a huge plus. The formula is pretty good as well, it didn’t flake and definitely made my eyes pop. I prefer it in the darkest black.
Color Burst Lip Gloss- I like everything about this lipgloss including the packaging. The formula is really high pigmented so you get the effect of a lipstick layered with a gloss out of one product. Out of all the shades I found that the color Rose Pearl -014 looked good on every single skin tone.
