Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Review

image

Hello beauties! So I actually brought this nail varnish to match my bridesmaid dress for my friends wedding in my Revlon Haul. I felt like a right idiot waking around superdrug, picking up every nail varnish that looked like it and comparing it to a picture of the dress on my phone. Needs must though! Nail varnish has changed so much since I was a kid. Now we have foils, wraps, caviar beads, gel polish, magnetic polish… I could go on. But now we have scented nail polish! I know other brands have done this before, but it’s the first time I’ve used any scented nail polish.

The Revlon Parfumerie™ Nail Enamel Collection reveals a light and enticing fragrance when dry, for a whole new way to experience colour. Vibrant and punchy shades, like China Flower, are infused by exotic & fruity notes.

Review
First off, I love the bottles. They actually remind me of little perfume bottles. Which is the point I guess. I thought that maybe because the lid is quite small and round that it would be hard to actually control the brush, but it surprisingly wasn’t. The brush is awesome too. Not big that it makes a mess of your nail bed, but not too small that you have to keep topping the brush up with polish for one nail, which usually leads to streaking. I didn’t get any scents from the polish while applying, but I didn’t smell that usual chemically nail polish smell, which is good! This shade has a fine glitter based, so it took me a couple of coats to get the shade I required to match my dress. The only bad thing about applying multiple coats is drying time. I applied about 4 coats and it wasn’t the fastest drying, but it’s never going to be when you apply that many coats. Even though I applied so many coats, it lasted nearly a week! Which I was really shocked at. This isn’t a colour that I would wear very often because it’s not really me, but it was perfect for my dress I wore for my friends wedding. At least I know now that it’s a good nail varnish.

Conclusion
I would definitely buy more shades in this range. And maybe next time I’ll actually smell it to see what it smells like! I think I was in too much if a rush when I applied it to actually give it a wif! These are currently available at  Superdrug for £6.49 with a range of 17 sades all totally wearable.

Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer Review

Hello beauties! Hope you are doing well. I’ve slowed down lately on the posts because I just haven’t had time, even with having a week off of work! Gonna try and make more time to post regularly again then just every 4 days like it’s been now! I brought this in my Revlon Haul and I’ve been using this primer for about a month now, and this is what I think about it.

Primes and smoothes the skin to create a perfect canvas. Reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines. Evens out skin’s texture. Can be worn alone or under foundation

Application
Primer can be worn alone or under foundation to create a smooth, even canvas. Apply primer after moisturizer and before makeup to fill in fine lines and pores and to prep for foundation application.

Review
Primers are so important for me. I have fine lines, pores and I work full time. So having a primer that can fill my pores and lines, and help it last all day is a big thing for me, and I think for alot of other people. The pump dispenser is really handy and hygienic. You only need one pump to cover your face. I was scared that with how white the primer is, that it would make me look paler then I am, but thankfully it didn’t. It is quite thick, but if you use it sparingly it’s fine. My skin is left with a matte look and silky to the touch. It isn’t a silicon based primer which I find can dry out your skin, this one moisturises my skin as well as leaving it with a matte finish. When applying my foundation, it’s the perfect base. It makes my foundation look flawless.
As for filling my pores and lines, I found that my not so problematic areas it perfected, but where I have issues with pores and lines it only blurred them. I’ve tried the same foundation with this and also without, and it does make it last a couple of hours longer. After those hours though I have noticed slight slips around my nose and on my chin. As well as pores, I suffer from spider veins around my nose which is the main reason for me wearing foundation. I’ve found since wearing this primer, I’ve been wearing alot less foundation to cover this problematic area. I’ve also had one of those horrible under the skin spots on my chin, which we all know makes your skin red. I didn’t even need any cover up on it which I was really surprised at. My skin is both oily and dry and it can be hard to find a primer that suits both. I try to avoid silicon primers now because of the dry areas of my face, which thankfully this isn’t. This moisturises the dryness, without irritating the oily parts of my face.

Conclusion
This primer retails at £11.99. It isn’t perfect, but it really is quite a good primer! You get 27ml of product for you money which has lasted me a while now. The thing I like about this is that it’s perfect for any skin type oily, dry or combination. Would I buy this again? Definitely if I was in a rush and needed to run in and out of the drugstore. But the thing about being a beauty blogger, you always want to try the next product! This primer has definitely made me want to stay away from the silicon primers though.

Revlon Haul

Hello beauties! So, this haul came about when I was trying to match a nail varnish to my bridesmaid dress for my friends wedding. I looked like a right idiot waking around superdrug, placing lots of nail varnishes next to my phone screen and going ‘hmmm’. But I found the perfect match! Superdrug were doing their never ending (feels like it anyway!) 3 for 2 on anything Revlon, which spurred me to buying the other two items. Here’s what I brought…

Revlon Care Base & Top Coat

Multi-tasking formula fortifies nails from bottom to top for longer wear
-smoothes nails and prevents yellowing
-seals and protects with high-shine finish
-forms a shiny, flexible shield on nails

I needed a top and bottom coat product anyway since running out of my Nailgirls 3-1 Base & Top Coat Strengthener. I loved that stuff because it strengthened my nails too, which is good for me because my nails are quite brittle! But I was in a rush and I needed something now.

Captivating Colour. Irresistible Scent. Brilliant color that stays true

They haven’t got alot to say about it huh? Which I find strange because it’s such an unusual concept. I know other brands have done it before.. But it kind of interests me. I purely brought this because it was the closest match I was going to get to my dress, but I can’t wait to see what it smells like! The shade I brought is called Surf Spray. Full review is available here.

Revlon Photoready Face Perfecting Primer

I was in the market for another primer since running out of my Maybeline Baby Skin Primer (that names still grosses me out!) I’m used to my primers being translucent… But this is extremely white! It does, however go translucent when you work it in (I tested it in the shop before buying it!) I did a full review of this here.

So that’s what I brought in my revlon haul! Reviews will be out as soon as I’ve had some time to use them.

Review: Revlon Photoready Eyeshadow

Easily create limitless looks with one palette. Each palette features a primer, 3 highly pigmented shadows, and a sparkle top coat. Use wet for more color intensity. Add sparkle top coat for a multi-dimensional, intensely shimmering effect.

I brought this product in my Superdrug Haul. I’ve been using the same palette for a while now so I thought it was time for a change. I looked around and this one caught my eye. I liked the primer aspect of this palette with it being included, but I was intrigued about it being a powder.. Let’s put it to the test! I’ve been using it for a couple of week now so I think I’m ready to out my opinion.

Review
My first impressions were that I liked the look of this palette. It’s self explanatory. First off, the primer is pretty pants. I wouldn’t consider it a primer at all. I’d consider it more of a base colour. I have no idea how they get away with calling it a primer. My Eyeshadow would hold in some places, but not in the creases of my eyelids. It would just gather up and rub off.. That never happened with my Avon Eyeshadow… Even without primer! I do enjoy the colours, but some are not very pigmented. The crease shade is probably the most pigmented where as the lid colour and the arch colour aren’t that great. Had to keep going over it to get any sort of defining colour on my eyes! Don’t get me started on the sparkle top coat. I put a tiny bit on just to try it out and it just crumbles. Glitter was all over my cheeks. It wasn’t a good look. If it was more solid I could see it adding some definition to your eye make up but it’s too fine and ruins the rest of your face!

Conclusion
Will I buy this product again? No. I’ve brought much cheaper Eyeshadow paletts that are more pigmented then this one. I was really disappointed because I’ve always enjoyed other product by Revlon like there lipsticks and foundations in the past. Such a shame that it just doesn’t deliver. One upside is that you can use this palette for a wet look, but that’s more of a night look in my opinion. For everyday use I would not recommend this.
