Revlon Colors Me Excited!


*All sample products reviewed were provided by Revlon

I have been noticing bright lips everywhere recently. Many a celeb has been spotted sporting a bright pink, orange, or red hue and me LIKES. Sidenote, how gorgeous are all these ladies?
I must admit that I am a creature of habit and tend to stick to more nude, natural pink looks (a la Miss Underwood, natch)
{Get a life Carrie, stop being so pretty.}

BUT, I have been secretly wanting to try out the bright lip that I am seeing all over the place, so color me excited when Revlon sent me some of their new looks to try out!

My little package of wonderful arrived with two shades of new Revlon ColorBurst™ Lacquer Balm and two shades of Revlon ColorBurst™ Matte Balm. 
The Lacquer Balm is formulated for high shine, and a balm like moisture. It is super soft on your lips because it's infused with a triple butter complex of shea, mango and coconut, so it smells great too! The Matte Balm has a velvety color coupled with the same triple butter complex as the Lacquer Balm as well. Both are retractable chubby crayons, so no hassle of sharpening, ladies. 

I received the following colors:
A lovely little assortment if you ask me ;) 240 is a bright red, 245 a more coral hue, 120 is a bright pink and 105 a soft pink nude. 
My first thoughts were how smoothly and richly the color went on. They did not feel dry at all like some long lasting color's I have tried-so that is a HUGE bonus. They also don't look cakey like you sometimes see with stains and opaque colors. 

I don't have much of a social life these days, so I decided to try out the 240 color at work one day last week. The result? Success! My friend Ellen came up to me and the first thing she said was that she loved my lip color, and asked what it was! Shew, maybe I can pull off the bright lip? 

I loved this color so much! (240 from above)
I also LOOVE the 245, the more coral color. It's great with browns!

My beauty secret, which has taken me a LONG time to learn, is to never (ever) squeeze a pimple. As tempting as it may be, it only makes it worse!!!

Kelly Jo said...

I have just recently started using all brushes on my eye make-up instead of a few sponge brushes and love the look. I got my brushes at Target, they are Elf brand and I love them!!

Angi Solle said...

I use my foundation on my eye lids and it helps my eye shadow stay on much better, rather than getting creases and it all pilling up together :) I also use a lighter shade of lip gloss in the center of my lips and a darker on the outside to make them appear larger!

Girl! I just bought the cranberry colored lacquer balm from Revlon, and I've worn it almost every day since I got it! I love it. I do wish it was more if a stain, though. The staying power is my only complaint about it. I adore it otherwise! Can't wait to get my lippy-loving hands on 240!

Alexis McConihay said...

My most recent beauty secret is Milk of Magnesia! It is an absolute Godsend. Put a little on your t-zone before applying make-up and it is HANDS DOWN THE BEST EVER shine control. I have tried so, so many products to avoid the dreaded shine and this lasts the whole day (into the evening)and costs just pennies! ♥♥

So one of my favorite (new to me) beauty tricks is lining my water line with a nude colored eyeliner, it makes you look so much more awake!

Also, I am legit OBSESSED with these Relvon Balm Stains! I purchased a couple colors of the original formula (it's called Just Bitten Kissable I think?) and got super excited when I heard they were coming out with a Matte/Glossy version! I have been looking at my Target for weeks for them, and finally went to a different Target last night and found them! I personally LOVE the Matte red one I bought because it's such a great, easy way to do a really dramatic red lip for the holidays without having to go through the hassle of lipliner/lipstick. (Also the fact that you got these sent to you is awesome!)

Love Revlon. Love Target. Love you.

Too much? Haha :)

My new friend is the stipple brush! Love to use that along with my beauty blender to apply my bb cream. But most of the time I just use one or the other both blends about the same (with bb cream) I use the Elf $3 stipple brush, and the beauty blender came in a Birchbox ages ago.
Also, I use the Elf, daily brush cleaner, love the scent too.

Ashley said...

i like to use vasoline on my lips at night

Brittany Bryan said...

My favorite tip is to layer your mascaras! Put one on, curl your lashes and then when its dry put another formula on. Sometimes when i go out I'll even mix 3 mascaras. Works like a charm!

samjane said...

My beauty secret is USE eye cream. I just started when I was 26 and now I'm only 27 but still... never too early to start and keep it going!

Thanks for the opportunity!

I put a small amount of Vaseline under my eyes at night (just as good as eye cream I think), and ALWAYS coat the top sides of my lashes with mascara. It makes a huge difference :)

Natalie said...

I love doing a little bit of champagne colored eyeshadow along my brow bone and then on the inner corner of my eyes...it brightens your whole face up!

Paige said...

Arbonne eye creme, is practically magic for my super sleepy eyes after my sleepless nights.
To be honest I've loved reading everyone's opinions to pick up on new secrets, too.n

Carrie said...

My favorite beauty secret is to always, always, always curl my lashes! Makes a huge difference!

I do not really have any magical tips apart from drinking plenty of water, wearing sunscreen and exfoliating/moisturizing daily! I particularly like cocoa butter as a skin smoother :)

My biggest beauty secret is to moisturize and use shea butter on lips in winter

Savannah said...

My favorite beauty trick is putting on a few coats of mascara! I automatically look more alive when I have some on! Also, moisturizing my skin. I never ever go to bed sans moisturizer and I put it on after I wash my face in the morning.

Skip the fancy exfoliators. A simple washcloth works just as well.

I have under-eye circles and my tip is to put concealer only on the sides of the eye, then blend inward (and down). It looks more natural than covering up the whole area.

Beauty Tip: Milk of Magnesia as a face primer. Seriously! I have the oiliest skin known to man; my face looks like an oil slick by mid-morning. Ever since I stated using MOM my face stays matte.

Baby Reed said...

My favorite beauty trick is to mix your concealer with a little bit of eye gel before you apply it, and it won't settle into fine lines/imperfections/creases.

rachel said...

If you have green eyes, try purple eyeliner to make them pop!

Amanda Raye said...

I always highlight and contour. Once you learn how to do it, it'll change your life! Just make sure you're using a bronzer that doesn't have orange under tones.

In the winter, wash yourself and your hair less. Too much showering in the cold REALLY dries out your hair and skin. Every other day is plenty unless you have a condition or something. :-D

I use an eyebrow brush and line the inside of the eyelid, it makes my lash line look thicker and creates a “no makeup” look.
