Mascara is one of those products that I’m constantly playing around with – it’s one of those can’t live without it type of things for me. Of course, with SO many different options out there, it can be a bit overwhelming trying to find “the one.” We all have different needs and wants when it comes to choosing this, and Revlon has decided to make things just a little bit easier with their new Mascara Portfolio!

Whether you’re looking for fullness, definition, volume, length, or a combination of these, they’ve come up with a 5 product collection that covers just about anything you could want in a mascara. This means the shopping process is simplified and you can find exactly what you want without having to go crazy over it! I’m a mascara addict, and couldn’t wait to dive in to see exactly what these could do. The colour-coded mascaras come in chic packaging, and make it easy to know what you’re reaching for in your makeup bag.

I love how each mascara has a different brush that has been specifically designed to give the look that you’re trying to achieve. I personally have lashes that are a decent length, but I want to add in some volume and max out their potential. The Revlon Volume + Length Magnified Mascara (blue cap) has become my go-to, as it plumps my lashes to look lush and full, while still adding in volume. I also really like the added volume boost I get from the Revlon Ultra Volume Mascara (pink cap).

The Revlon Mascara Portfolio is available in Black, Blackened Brown & Blackest Black (also available in waterproof formula) in the following:

  • Revlon Volume + Length Magnifying Mascara – A long, medium-sized but full brush coats the lashes fully to the tip, thickening as it goes.
  • Revlon Ultimate All-in-One Mascara – A short brush with smaller bristles, this one was a touch difficult to work with, but it really coated the lashes for the most dramatic result. This one is perfect for a night out or for lashes that need a little more oomph.
  • Revlon Super Length Mascara – This mascara has the thickest brush, making it easy to grab lashes from root to tip for maximum length.
  • Revlon Ultra Volume Mascara – this full, lush brush helps to give the lashes a thicker appearance.
  • Revlon Dramatic Definition Mascara – Very defined, plastic bristles help to coat and separate every lash so they really stand out.

Although it may seem simple, matching your foundation and concealer to your skin tone, and each other, isn’t always an easy task. With so many different shades available, undertones coming into play, and different lighting playing tricks on your eyes, finding your perfect shades can be a bit of a challenge, but with the right products and a couple of tips, you can find a seamless match!

When looking for the perfect foundation and concealer, don’t be afraid to look around and try a few shades – the ones that work might surprise you!  Compact foundations typically appear darker in the packaging than they do on your skin, so keep that in mind. It also helps to bring someone else along to take a look from a different perspective, and I strongly advise take a look at the shade that you’ve tried in natural light, not just in the store lighting, as you’ll most likely see a difference. Once you’ve found a shade or two that you think closely matches your skin tone, swipe them along your jawline on the side of your face. If it blends in and you don’t see a colour difference, you’ve met your match – make sure it blends in well and doesn’t sit on the skin. You’ll definitely see a change in colour if it doesn’t work for you. When you’ve found the concealer and foundation shades you love, try layering them on top of each other to ensure they work well together and blend in nicely.

The Revlon ColorStay 2-in-1 Compact Makeup and Concealer helps to take the guesswork out of matching your concealer and foundation, which is a pretty good place to start. They’ve found combinations of these two products that blend together perfectly, meaning you’ll never find yourself with mismatched shades. The complementary foundation and concealer shades are housed in the same compact, making application (and reapplication throughout the day) easy. The perfectly matched foundation and concealer provides buildable coverage so you can find the exact level that you need, and has a demi-matte finish so you have a hint of a glowing, dewy look.

I’ve found that having both the concealer and foundation matched beforehand has been a great help when it comes to my daily application. I never have to worry about my concealer showing up (there’s nothing worse than orange or super pale spots – I’m not a cheetah), and the creamy formula of both products ensures that blending is never an issue. They both feel great on my skin, never greasy, and I’m left with a glowing, flawless look that lasts all day long.

I love that it comes with an applicator and mirror built in – between this and the combination of foundation and concealer, this is the perfect product to take on the go! To make things even easier for application, the concealer and foundation are kept on two separate layers. To start, apply concealer to any problem areas that need a little more attention, and then flip the concealer up to easily access the cream foundation. A tear-shaped sponge applicator is housed underneath the foundation layer (flip this up to access it) and is a great tool for applying and blending in both the concealer and foundation.

All in all, I’m definitely a fan of how easy it is to find the perfect colour combo (they always blend seamlessly together) and the convenience of having both products in one simple compact, so you know your concealer and foundation are always going to blend perfectly together. How do you find your perfect match?

This fall, Gucci Westman (Global Artistic Director for Revlon) has once again come up with a show-stopping collection of shades destined to turn heads.  The Revlon Boho Chic Collection, inspired by the sophisticated Bohemian look, puts a focus on bold jewel tones and feminine lips.

Revlon ColorStay Eye Liner in Sapphire ($10.49 CAD): This intense blue liner makes the perfect companion for the Eclectic eye shadow palette.  More forgiving and less harsh than black liner, this fine-tipped liner helps to brighten up the eyes, adding a hint of mysterious colour to the lids.

Revlon PhotoReady Primer + Shadow in Eclectic ($13.59 CAD): I absolutely adore the blue-hued jewel tones included in this palette.  Although they can be a little bit bold, I find that you can easily play around with them to find a way to make them wearable for any situation.  The shadows glide on to the skin really nicely and I have to say I was quite impressed with how pigmented the shades were.  These blue shades may not be for everyone, but are definitely worth stepping outside of your comfort zone for.

Revlon ColorStay Lip Liner in Soft Pink & Fuchsia ($10.49 CAD ea): I’m not going to lie to you – these two lip liners were the part of the Boho Chic Collection that I was least excited about.  In my defense, I’m not a big lip liner gal, and tend to stick to more nude/red/clear lip liners when I do wear them.  These liners are pink. Hella pink.  Though when it comes to pairing them up with the Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipsticks included in this collection, they make sense, and definitely work well with the shades.

Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Boho Chic, Ready to Wear, Stylist & Wardrobe ($13.59 CAD):  I’ve heard some things that are not necessarily super flattering about the Ultimate Suede Lipsticks, and went into these feeling a little apprehensive.  I’m not sure if the formula was tweaked a little with these 4 new shades, but I actually loved them.  They were smooth and moisturizing, and the colour came out spot on on my lips.  Not overly pigmented, these lipsticks gave lips a nice boost of colour.  My favourites of the bunch have to be Stylist and Wardrobe.  Both give a nice flushed colour to my lips with a hint of berry.

Revlon Nail Enamel in Artsy, Edgy & Bohemian

Revlon Nail Enamel in Artsy, Edgy & Bohemian ($6.29 CAD ea): My god are these ever lovely.  I have swatched these to try them in person, but I swear my nails are in such rough shape right now that I’m going to hold off on sharing them for now (you can check out fantastic swatches courtesy of beauty geeks here).  Bohemian is a really lovely teal shimmer, reminiscent of a peacock feather, but Artsy and Edgy really steal the show.  With a jelly finish and tons of thick glitter, these really give off an interesting effect that you need to see to understand.  I will caution you though, they aren’t exactly easy to apply.   They need to be applied thickly, rather than just swiped on as you would do with a regular polish, for them to go on properly.

  • Start off with the eyes.  Apply Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks in Oyster ($3.49) all over lid up to the brow bone to add in some highlighting.  I also like to apply a little to the inner corner of the eye to brighten.
  • Apply Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks in Charcoal ($3.49) to the crease, blending in to give a nice, smoky effect.
  • Apply a thick link of Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in Black ($10.49) to the upper lid, starting from the inner corner and ending with a slight flick at the outter corner.  Apply a line from the middle of the lower lash line out, joining the top line at the outer corner.
  • Finish off with 2 coats of Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara in Blackest Black ($10.49) to really emphasize the eyes.
