Kiss & Makeup: Revlis Makeup Review

I came across Revlis Cosmetics on Twitter about two weeks ago as they were looking for bloggers to review their products. I reached out to them and received a sample of their products shortly after. They packed the samples very well and everything arrived safely.

First up, the powder foundation in Peck on the Cheek #3. As their powder foundation comes in 10 different shades, they offered me my pick. However, the image they sent to pick from was a bit difficult to see the color on so I would recommend that they make the color swatches larger. The powder foundation itself is fantastic! I’ve been using it for two weeks and love it! As I like a lot of coverage I dust it over my liquid foundation to help set it and to get full coverage. As you can see in the photo it has a rotating lid inside so that you can control how much powder comes out. Very nifty!

I also received two eye shadows, one a dark brown with gold flecks called Foxy, the other off white with pinkish tones and gold flecks called Warm Winter. They are both lovely colors, however they aren’t as pigmented as I would like. I have to layer them a bit to get the desired effect. They are slightly chunky in their texture in the pot, however when applied they smooth easily. The chunky texture I believe is because of their mineral components. Below are swatches of both (Foxy on the left, Warm Winter on the right) with and without a flash.

Finally, the lip balm. I actually think this was my favorite! It smells really good and goes on smoothly. If you like the smell of lemongrass, like I do, you’ll love this! It really helped to revitalize my lips that weren’t in the best shape lately because of the changing weather in LA. I’d definitely recommend this to a friend!

As a note, Revlis Cosmetics is a No-GMO, Soy Free, Gluten Free, Paraben Free, Alcohol Free, and Phthalate Free company. They also import some of their ingredients from women in Ghana in order to help provide the women there with the opportunity to support themselves. In short, Revlis is a Free Trade supporter. They are also cruelty free.
