A Revlon FOTD

It's been a while since I've posted FOTDs on this blog. Aside from my regular life getting the best of me and my time, I have rarely applied make up these days {Sue me.} The other day, I've received some gifts from friends from Revlon so I decided to make an FOTD with it as I was figuring a way to somehow mask my tired face over the last few days because I haven't been getting enough sleep.

The three products I used from Revlon in this FOTD are the following:

Revlon Brow Fantasy in Brunette

Revlon Matte Blush in Blushing Berry

Revlon Colorstay Mineral Mousse liquid makeup

And here are some of my FOTDs from last week:

Notice how my face is so white here. I got a bit happy brushing on

Second note: my eyebrows look ugly here. :|

On regular days I don't get too happy with the brush, it really is like a 
God-send because it's recreates a great veil over my face and I
look glowing!

Ack! I did not realize this photo makes me look naked! :|
Anyhoo, I used all of the above products again and see how I have gotten
it much better this time. I only topped the liquid foundation
with shu uemura's Translucent Finishing Powder.

My notes on the products:

Revlon Mineral Mousse Liquid Foundation:

  • Consistency was not mousse-y at all, it was too malabnaw for a product that claims to be a mousse.
  • The shade 030 seemed like the most perfect of all shades of foundation I've ever tried though. As I was patting it onto my face, I couldn't see where the foundation and my skin demarcated. All I could see was that my blemishes were being covered bit by bit.
  • Unlike a personal favorite, the finish was not as smooth and not as seamless as other foundations seem to give. I think Revlon has yet to perfect the liquid foundation line.
  • It didn't make me oily, though so that's a thumbs up!
  • No breakouts, too!
  • No icky smell and the packaging is classy, IMO.
  • Good job on the SPF 20 but real skincare enthusiasts would know better than to trust a product that's not meant to do something but claims to.
  • Staying power is so-so but I don't mind at all.
  • Php 875 for 30mL is a bit steep for a drugstore product, IMO.

Revlon Matte Powder Blush in Blushing Berry

  • It was love at first swipe. 
  • The color payoff was not much but it's buildable --- which I always like with my blushes because I don't want a thick coat of blush at first brush, especially when I'm doing my makeup in the morning and I tend to still be a bit sleepy.
  • No glitters, just pure matte awesomeness.
  • Php 625 for a drugstore blusher seems a bit high {Ha, I'm too kuripot for words!}
  • Why does Revlon bother with all these scratchy mini brushes? 
  • But above all else, I stashed away my HG blush and this Revlon blush is now in my everyday bag.
 Revlon Brow Fantasy in Brunette
  • When I looked at it, I didn't think it was the kind of product that will work on me. After all, I was not sure light-colored brow gels worked for me {though I'm completely not sure why I still haven't bought MAC's Girl Boy until now}. When I swiped the crayon on my brows and used the gel it came with, my brows looked like I stepped out of a salon: WINNER!
  • On the second day I used this product, my dear friend T commented while she was drinking her coffee: "Uy, your makeup looks great today ha, especially your eyebrows." I have Revlon to thank for this compliment.
  • On the night of my second FOTD above, my best girlfriend Y and I trooped over to Miracle Spa in Aguirre St. and had a Swedish massage that had my face mashed up by the therapist. When I looked at myself in the mirror after, my eyebrows were very much filled and still intact.
  • I know this is available in Manila but I haven't seen it in the stores I looked into for research. Would anyone know? TIA!

That's it for my Revlon FOTD.  Do you love/hate any Revlon product? Share!
