The Rio Rush Collection by Gucci Westman for Revlon Summer 2014
A colourful, vibrant limited edition collection from Revlon, the Rio Rush Collection feels like heat, summer, salsa! A little bit of info from Revlon:
The latest collection from Revlon Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman transports you to the lush city of Rio de Janeiro during the height of its famous ‘Carnaval,’ a celebration of life, of dancing, and colour. The Rio Rush Collection by Gucci Westman for Revlon Summer 2014 captures the essence of this festival and brings together bright, tropical colours that evoke the sexiness of this vibrant carnival south of the Equator.
“I pictured a provocative Brazilian woman, full of life and fun,” said Westman of her collection inspiration. “She is bold yet sensual; fierce with a touch of glamour.”
This highly anticipated collection for Summer ‘14 draws a tropical vibe with radiant makeup for a look that is both
sexy and alluring.
Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow is available in two new shades, Exotic and Wild.
ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow in Wild (L) and Exotic (R)
Wild is a gorgeously arranged quad containing a frosty vanilla, metallic taupe, sunburnt orange and deep teal (above left, clockwise from the lightest shade). You’ll notice it contains the complementary shades of teal and orange-red – perfect when paired! Unfortunately the beautiful taupe blended with my slightly tan skin, but you can see a hint of it at the top of the photo – it actually makes a gorgeous nude, even on my skin!
Exotic contains a soft metallic bisque, a muted violet, a vibrant matte yellow, and a soft black. Once again, complementary colours yellow and violet are present, resulting in a fun ’80’s effect when paired!
Revlon’s famous Super Lustrous Lipstick is available in three new shades: Brazilian Tan, Carnival Spirit and Sultry Samba:
Swatches on my hand, with Sultry Samba on top, Carnival Spirit in middle, and Brazilian Tan on bottom. You can see the sheer finish of Carnival Spirit:
Brazilian Tan, a gorgeous nude creme that I absolutely loved, applied perfectly with an opaque, creamy finish:
Sultry Samba, the most vivid of the three, is a bright fuchsia that can be built up to full opacity with a fairly matte finish:
Finally, Carnival Spirit appears bright in the tube yet is the softest of the three, applying a shiny, sheer wash of orange on your lips. It can be built up but not to full opacity. Its finish is moist and rich and feels amazing!
Revlon introduces four new limited edition shades with this Rio Rush Collection: Carioca Crush, Copa Sunset, Gold Goddess and Oi Beautiful. I have three of the four for you, starting with Oi Beautiful, a pretty mid-tone purple creme. Great coverage, high shine, all at two coats (no top coat):
A gold flake glitter, Gold Goddess has a clear base, making it a perfect topper for any shade! I paired it with Oi Beautiful for a gorgeous, regal soft glitter gradient:
Is that not a perfect pairing?
Carioca Crush is a beautiful blue shade with a slight jelly finish (you can see the jelly ever so slightly at the tips of my nails), so does need careful application. The work is well worth it as the shade is a muted blue, making it very wearable, especially with that gorgeous shine:
Also available, Revlon ColorStay’s Creme Gel Eyeliner in Rio Blue. This metallic blue is the perfect finish to your Wild or Exotic eyes:
Join the festival and celebrate colour with The Rio Rush Collection by Gucci Westman for Revlon!
