A few months ago, I was selected to participate in Revlon Selects, a new program that Revlon launched to allow fans to try some of their latest products. The package was shipped to us pretty quickly, and included the following:
- Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede™ Lipstick in Backstage
- Revlon PhotoReady™ Primer + Shadow in Metropolitan
- Revlon Nail Art Expressionist™in Vincent Van Gold
- Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy™ in Orbit and a
- Revlon Diamond Collection™ File
Here’s what it looked like:
It seemed like most of us, if not all, received the same packages, which, I feel, is a nice way to launch a program. However, in the future it might be nice to send out a variety of different colours. 🙂
I think my favourite items in the collection were the eyeshadow set and the Nail Art polish in Moon Candy. Here is a close-up of the PhotoReady shadow set:
The colours are stunning. I love the chocolate brown as well as the neutrals provided around the deep chocolate. The glittery gold accent shadow is a nice optional touch that you can add or skip, depending on your mood. I don’t think I have ever used a shadow primer in powder format so I was a little skeptical about this shadow’s promises of longevity, but the first time I wore it to work (it was a long day), it held up! By the time I was washing my face that night, I only had a hint of a crease… the primer worked well! I’ll definitely be wearing this shadow again.
I wore the Moon Art polish duo only once, and didn’t get any pics because of the wintery weather we’ve been having, so I’ll try and post pictures next time. 🙂 Overall, I loved the purple polish in this set; it applied perfectly and could have been a one-coater. The flakie accent polish is gorgeous, but the only downside is that there could have been more flakies. You really need to apply quite a bit of polish to get the flakie effect that you see in the bottle.
The Revlon Diamond Collection nail file is sparkly and pretty, and a great file to keep in your purse as it comes in a sleeve.
I cannot wait to try the Vincent Van Gold polish and the ColorStay Ultimate Suede™ Lipstick soon!
