Beachy Waves & Makeup Look with Revlon

I got to try some fantastic products for this look!

Just try to ignore my lazy eye, it's out in full force in this video o_O



First, the Revlon Colorstay Smoky Shadow Stick (the one I am using is "Flare") was easy to blend and buildable. It's part of a new range of long-wearing shadow sticks coming out this summer. I believe they're available in the USA already and will be slowly rolling out into Canada and the rest of the world in the coming weeks :)



It's a cream to powder texture that lasts a long time without creasing, even on my oily eyelids, which is saying something.



The shades in "Flare" really flatter brown eyes.

Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume mascara, which I have mentioned on the blog before on a couple different occasions, is a great everyday mascara. It gives good volume without clumping and separates the lashes nicely. The wand has bristles at the very tip as well so that you can easily access the inner and outer corner of the eye and capture every lash! 

On the lips I have opted for one of my favourite combinations as of late, the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in "Charm" (still haven't seen them in my area in Canada, but they're supposed to pop up by the end of this month) paired with a Revlon Colorburst lip gloss in "Bellini", which was released earlier in the year as part of their Summer 2012 "Escapism" collection - the shade itself is not limited edition, though.

What new products are you excited for this summer?

Again, Revlon kindly is giving away 10 of the new Colorstay Smoky Shadow Sticks to 10 of you, so as always make sure to leave me your name and e-mail address (or Twitter username if you don't want to give out your e-mail) and I will randomly choose the winners in the next couple of weeks.

edit - the giveaway is now closed.

Hope your week was great, and that the weekend is even better :)

  2. That purple shade is so beautiful, I have been lemming the Revlon lip products for a while now but it takes so long for them to come out to Australia. Great video x

  13. I absolutely adore those Revlon ColorStay Shadow Sticks. I was so amazed by their staying power. Revlon's making such amazing new products this season that it's hard to stick to my usual makeup budget. Such a nice look on you as well.

  16. I've never tried purple on my eyelids before (I tend to lean toward blues and pinks) so it would be fun to experiment :) and my eyes are brown :D

  19. I was eyeing on Torch one but this one looks great as well~~~ I'm happy to hear that it blends well and lasts long..since it's a cream base product, I was a little concerned and passed on it..

  55. Those colours look so pretty! Apparently purples are meant to look good with my green eyes but I just can't wear it, it makes me think of when I was experimenting with makeup as a young teen... just no.
    Gutted, because it looks so pretty on you!
