Revlon Haul/Reviews

So I went to this Revlon Warehouse located on 38th Street in Manhattan a while ago. I've been slacking with this post but better late than never, right?  Anywho so my friend told me about this warehouse and let me tell you, the prices are crazy! Most of the stuff is like 50-75% off! I love sales so I was in heaven lol. So here's what I got:

Now with the reviews. I'm going to start with the Revlon "Just Pinched" Cheek Stains. Right when I was about to pay for my purchases, I see a big bin of this stuff next to the register. They were going for 49 cents so I decided to get all the shades. Well basically with this stuff, you get what you pay for. They're inconsistent, a pain to apply and the consistency is kind of gross. It feels like you're rubbing jell-o on your face. The colors look very pretty on the swatches but they're so sheer on the face, you can hardly see anything. And some shades will look nice and some will make you look like you have a dirty face. So all in all, I'll just stick with my Benefit Benetint cheek stain.

Pros: pretty shades, true to color, easy to blend
Cons: inconsistent with texture, weird consistency, not very pigmented
Overall Rating: 2/5

Continuing with the face products, I also got the Revlon Colorstay Foundation and the Revlon Colorstay Mineral Finish Powder. I loooove them both! Thr Revlon Foundation is the ish! It's so easy to blend and gives great coverage. I also love that you can build up on the coverage and it doesn't feel heavy on your face. the only thing I don't like was the smell but it's not that big of an issue.That's why it got a 4 of a 5, and because it doesn't come with a pump. The Mineral Finish Powder is a great setting powder. It makes my skin look near-flawless. I got the shade "Suntan Matte". It's not that matte since it has a very slight shimmer but I don't mind it. I think it adds a very subtle glow.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation 
Pros: easy to blend, good coverage (can build on it), great price, doesn't feel heavy
Cons: smell
Overall Rating: 4/5

Revlon Colorstay Mineral Finish Powder
Pros: light, doesn't feel cakey, doesn't leave skin powdery-looking
Cons: slight shimmer
Overall Rating: 4.5/5, only comes in 3 shades

And on to the lip stuff. I'm not going to break them down because I liked them all and they were all similar sort off. The only difference was that the Colorstay Mineral one had a fruity, pleasant smell. I'm in love with the creme gloss, it goes on like a liquid lipstick and it lasts pretty long. I also love the shade of nudey-pink I bought. I definitely reccomend.

So aside from the cheek stains, I like my purhases. I've become a Revlon fan, they're my fave drugstore brand now.
