Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon Review




Wow,a Brow Crayon?  A jumbo brow crayon?  I find it a bit challenging for a first-timer to use a brow pencil I can't imagine using something as big as this crayon (shown on photo below).  Why and how will this work out?

I,the ultimate beauty product tester gave the newest Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon a try.  Yes,you'll hear it from me (I mean READ),it is difficult,weird for first few tries,but it's quite nice as the effect is like no other.

Intrigued?  Read on please!

Revlon Insta-Blush Review




Every Beauty Blogger in this world probably blogged or talked about Stick Blushes but seldom do I hear raves about them.



Why not?


Well,aside from the fact that it is indeed a great invention --- twist-up stick,easy-to-tote-along and use,can blend using just the tip of your fingers...

Why not?

Most of the time,based from my experience,they are hard to manage in terms of blending and they do not last the whole day!

Revlon recently came up with their own stick version of a blush called Insta-Blush.As the name states,this product can instantly give you the "blush"you want on your cheeks anytime,anywhere with ZERO tools!After using this nifty product for at least a month,I'm ready to share my thoughts!

What I Found at #SMWorldOfBeauty



I remembered preparing for my Engagement Day (which is almost like preparing for a Wedding day).I've decided to cut down cost by doing my own makeup and with that in mind,I've decided to go to a Beauty Store to purchase my own set of makeup.That was year 2007 (same year I started my Blog).
There wasn't much brand choices back then.

Fast forward to a decade,I am so happy how SM Beauty changed the way we beauty enthusiasts shop!I can finally say,I have STOPPED online shopping for more than a year now because there are so many holy grail products I can literally see,touch and try at SM Beauty!


Do you like Asian makeup?
Brands like K-Palette,4U2,Shiseido,Tony Moly,Etude House,Kate Tokyo,Holika Holika,Canmake Tokyomade its' way to our shores!Here are just some of my picks.

Revlon Colorstay Eyebrow Liner Review (Light Brown)



I always get a "kick"looking at my half-faced brow photos!That's when I always tell myself: "Kilay is really LIFE".Especially with my colored hair,I pretty much enjoy the fact that I can easily match my brow color with my hair color with just brow products!

Today,I am sharing not multiple but only ONE brow product that can change the look of my brows in no time.

"Revlon ColorStay Brow Pencil has an angled tip to precisely fill and a brush to tame for a sculpted brow.This brow pencil has soft,blendable color to fill and define brows.Waterproof formula."

2 years ago,I reviewed Revlon's brow product called Brow Fantasy by Colorstay ,I like the result but I find it will be intriguing for first timer brow product users!Revlon finally came up with a simple brow liner pencil that is so easy to use I highly recommend those who never dared touch their brows to give this product a try.

With a spoolie on one side and an "angled brow liner"on the other side.It is retractable so you don't have to worry about sharpening this pencil like others.

Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara Review




So when was the last time I reviewed a mascara again?More than a month!I can't seem to bother to use mascara on most days because really,what's there to "grab"right?

Thankfully,I have readers like "Cindie" (okay,it is her real name!hahaha)who has similar lash situation as I do and asked me about my favorite mascara AFTER Shiseido Full Lash Volume Mascara.It was a perfect timing for her to ask me this question because after testing and trying out so many,ONE brand and mascara product caught my attention!And I'm sure you'll be surprised how this brand finally got my "AMW Seal of Approval"since most of their past mascaras received "so so"approval from me!

Revlon foundations - never an issue for me,they can make good bases for a drugstore brand.But mascara?Revlon,you finally made it!

And this time,they made sure not to make any mistakes at all!They want to cover ALL lash issues thus coming up with 5 different variants to choose from under this mascara line!And goodness!I have to give them "Thumbs and Toes up"for great packaging too! (color coded!)

Revlon Romantic Nudes Look





How does one look romantic?
Well,I believe it always starts from "Romanticism from within".You can't just fake the "romantic look",you have to believe in it THEN you seek for the aid of "make up"and everything will be packaged as ONE.


It wasn't a difficult decision for me to pick the Romantic Nudes palette from Revlon Colorstay Not Just Nudes Collection.It was the easiest choice,because I've got the romantic bone since birth.

Here's my super simple look using this palette and for the sake of review,I also used the brush that comes with the palette.

Readers' Corner: On New Discoveries



One thing a lot of you don't know is that,I have an eyelid tape snucked inside my professional kit!  Why?  Well,you just don't know just don't know what clients will request next!

I remembered one client who asked me to turn her "large almond eyes"to "Chinky-eyes".  One mature client demanded me to remove her "wrinkles"entirely.  Who says being a Makeup Artist is an easy job?  So this makeup artist has to be ready!  I'm not saying all my clients are demanding,I'm just a good 'ol "always ready Scout"!

New discovery #1
BohkToh Eyelid Tape
Comes in Medium and Large
Php250.00


These are super easy-to-use pre-cut eyelid tapes to help create "double eyelid"effect.  What I love about these is that it doesn't look too obvious as compared to regular tapes and it doesn't shine!  It has a matte finish thus applying eyeshadow on top will mask the look of tape thus giving a more natural effect!

Year 2010,Revlon first came out with their PhotoReady make up line and I tried 3 of their products --- Revlon PhotoReady Liquid Foundation,Powder and Translucent Finisherand I was impressed!  For a drugstore brand,I highly recommend them especially for start-up make up artists!

Fast forward to 2015,they came up with an even better PhotoReady line,this time,their liquid foundation has an "Airbrush Effect"and they added up an Insta-Fix (perfect for those selfies)and a face primer that has a balm-y texture!

AMW Reviews: Revlon Brow Fantasy by ColorStay (Dark Brown)

I did share to you the ultimate "I want to try it now"Revlon product which was the Brow Fantasy By ColorStay.  True enough,it was the first item I picked to test from the bunch and I'm finally ready to share my thoughts!

I got the shade "Dark Brown"from BDJ Box and I wished the shade is lighter,but you know what?  I still went on wearing this just to test this out and now I'm rummaging through my stash to look for this product again and realized,I included this in my makeup pro kit.  So,you probably get it by now that this passed "AMW standard".:D

But,if you are OC like me and you want to know more about the product and tips on how to use,feel free,by all means,to scroll further down!  Please do...because you love me *winks*
