Revlon FTW

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about makeup (I know, what’s wrong with me), so here’s one for the masses!

I was at the grocery store today, and like any other trip, I just had to walk past the makeup aisles to see if there was anything new. And of course there was! My favorite drugstore brand, Revlon, had a nice display up advertising their “Spice It Up” Holiday line.

Now, usually my grocery store doesn’t get the special displays and limited edition products, so I was already pleasantly surprised. Then I saw it… the beautiful purple shaded Colorburst lipgloss. I’d been on the hunt for a drugstore purple lip color (still looking for Maybelline’s ColorSensational The Jewels Limited Edition lipstick in Amethyst Ablaze), so when I saw this gloss, officially named Decadent, there was no way I was leaving the store without my own tube!

I was already a Revlon Colorburst disciple. I have 10 lipsticks already, and had 3 of the relatively new glosses. Today, I added 2 more glosses to my collection; the aforementioned Decadent as well as a sparkly clear shade called “Chilled Frappe”. If you’re familiar with the Superlustrous line, it favors “Shine City” without any hint of pink (look at my pic above).

So, I tried ‘Decadent’ on tonight and loved it. I layered it over my Colorburst ‘Grape’ shade, then blotted and it was perfection. You could really see the iridescence that way. I’m going to experiment with it solo as well as with some other shades. And ‘Chilled Frappe’ just looks great over anything! A nice, frosty, shiny, iridescent top coat. Yes, there are sparkles, but it’s not too much, in my opinion. Especially if you blot like I do.

But don’t take my word for it! Pick one up for yourself and let me know what you think!

I also read that there are new Revlon Colorburst lip balms/butters that I absolutely must try. Revlon just keeps bringing it!

Note: Yes, there are nail polishes that are part of this line, but I didn’t buy any. Actually, I’ve never bought any Revlon polishes. Perhaps I will, one day!
