My Revlon Haul~ !

Photobucket
Among the many drugstore deals at the moment, Superdrug is offering a 3 for 2 on Revlon products. To be honest, I have never been attracted to Revlon. For a drugstore brand, their product prices are quite on the high end of the spectrum, which the quality from (drugstore swatching) didn't live up to. With these products however, I was really surprised with the colours and the quality, plus with the sale going on, I decided to try them out! I ended up with the gorgeous Summer Suede eyeshadow quad and two lip glosses: Coral Reef and Peach Petal. Reviews and swatches after the jump~ ! ♥



The Summer Suede eyeshadow quad is composed of four colours (which I am comparing to MAC eyeshadows): a matte coral (reminds me of a more orange version of Dear Cupcake eyeshadow), a matte light pink highlighter (reminds me of Yogurt eyeshadow), a blue-brown duochrome (reminds me of Club eyeshadow or a less pigmented Too Faced Label Whore eyeshadow) and a soft matte baby blue eyeshadow (reminds me of the blue side of Soften the Mood mineralised eye shadow). I'm really impressed by this quad. I really love the colours as they are perfect for this season, and the quality was acceptable. The eyeshadows could have been softer or more pigmented, but that said, the application was pretty easy and these eyeshadows last pretty well on the lids! I highly recommend this quad!

I was interested in two of the lustrous lip glosses. They are on the sticky side, but less so than standard MAC lipglosses.

Coral Reef is an opaque coral colour. When I wear it, it seems to brighten up my entire face!

Peach Petal is an opaque pinky-peachy nude colour. I really like this for a nude lip.

  3. I recently took advantage of this offer too. I bought two nail polishes and the coral lip gloss. I've yet to write my own review, but was quite amazed at how pigmented the gloss was, not expecting that at all. I've bought 2 of the eyeshadow quads before and know what you're saying about them not being very pigmented, that's why I haven't checked out any of the new ones. I'm really intrigued by that brown/blue colour, looks interesting, would like to see a look you could do with these. I think them not being so pigmented makes them a good eyeshadow for when you need a subtle, played down look like for work, but still want a little colour. xXx

  5. @Onyx- You're definitely right about the versatility with less pigmented eyeshadows. I own Too Faced's Label Whore eyeshadow which is like the blue-brown colour here but it is much more pigmented, and I'm afraid to use it on a daily basis, whereas this one I am confident to pull off. :)
