Awhile back I was in Vegas and realized that I had left my makeup bag sitting at home. Now, a girl can’t be in Vegas without makeup, so I popped into a CVS and grabbed a few items to get me through the trip and purposely picked out things I had not tried before so […]

Revlon Illuminance Creme Eye Shadow

Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow comes in quads of four creme shadows. I tried the quad Not Just Nudes, which turned out to be a fairly nice set of nude creme shades. The shadow itself is quite sheer, and only fairly buildable. If I had a complaint, I guess that would be it–I would rather see […]

Revlon Glimmer Gloss is a lightly tinted, glittery nail lacquer that can be worn alone or over regular polish. Personally, I like it over an opaque polish to add subtle extra shine and shimmer.

Revlon, like just about everyone else, has entered the mineral makeup market.

I really like cheek stains as long as I can blend them well enough and they are not overly dark. Revlon Pinch Me Sheer Gel Blush meets that description perfectly! This gel cheek stain is absolutely perfect for me. I picked it up in the shade Playful Pink, which is a nice natural rose/pink shade […]

Revlon Luxurious Color Eyeliner

After trying out blue mascara and liking it, I had a brief obsession with finding a good navy eyeliner. I thought it would be simple to run out and pick one up at any nearby store. Boy was I wrong! When I looked for one at Kohls from their Flirt line, they were sold out. […]

Revlon Cream Blush Review

Revlon Cream Blush Review

I have been really into cream blush lately. I like how it tends to stay longer than powder blush, and if applied right, it looks more natural. For a bit of extra glow and staying power, I will sometimes brush some Flirt! Blush or shimmering bronzer over it. Another trick I like is to apply […]
