Revlon Selects

Hey Girly's ❤❤
Hope your all feeling fantastic!! My entire family is finally 100% feeling better, this sickness was passed around again and again for what feels like months!! For the first time we are all A-Okay!! I am so excited, it defiantly makes the mood so much more happy!!

The post I am doing today is all about Revlon. Back in January I signed up for a program called Revlon Selects. It basically is a program that Revlon was doing on their Canadian Facebook page for bloggers. Whomever was selected got sent a few new products to review. I was very surprised that I had been chosen and was SO excited when I received my package!!

I received: Revlon PhotoReady Primer and Shadow Palette, Revlon Nail Art Expressionist, Revlon Nail Art Moon Candy, Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede, and lastly a Revlon Glitter Nail File. 

Glitter Nail File:
I have no clue what happened to my picture of the nail file but it is in the main photo above. One side of this was a normal nail file and the other was glitter. The glitter side promised to add shine to your nails.....

To be honest the glitter side did nothing at all. It felt like sand paper and probably was not the greatest to be rubbing my nails on. 

Would I purchase?? No, I would rather a nail file that has to working sides, although the glitter is pretty!! 

I was really excited to try out both the nail polishes because I had never tried either of the double ended nail polishes. The Moon Candy I received came in 280 Orbit. One side is a deep purple Cream and the other has Flakies. I don't have a lot of flakies so I was very excited to test them out. 
The Cream side came out lovely. I love this color and would defiantly wear it on its own. The formula for this was amazing. (One Coat!!)
As much as I enjoyed the cream side the flakies were another story. I really wanted to like these but they look awful. They come up off of the nail in every which way. They are chunky and goopy and just a mess!! 

Would I purchase this?? No, unless I had heard from others that other colors were better. The price tag is also a lot higher then I would like to pay for two small bottles of nail polish. 

I received the Matte lipstick in Backstage 035. The color is a nice deep wine with no shimmer. Like it says it is matte so you do need to put a gloss over this. It does have good staying power but I would probably re-apply at least once throughout the day. 

Would I purchase?? Maybe, I have seen these in stores for as much as $12 which in my opinion is not worth it for a drugstore lipstick. If these were better priced I would defiantly pick some up!!

I think I was most excited about this beauty!! I've always been a fan of Revlon eyeshadows so I had high hopes for this one. And it did not disappoint ! This has three eyeshadows  a highlight, crease, and lid. The very bottom color is a base and the small corner shadow is a shimmer to top it all off. I don't think you can get away with using the base rather than a liquid primer but everything else is gorgeous!! 

Would I purchase?? Yes!! I have bought many Revlon eyeshadows palettes and would defiantly purchase this!!

The Nail Art Expressionist came in Vincent Van Gold. I do not do a lot of nail art mainly because I do not have a steady hand or patience!! These small brushes were made for someone like me!!
The formula on these were great and easy to use. I like the concept of these a lot, however this mani reminds me of a Power Ranger.....is there a purple Power Ranger?? 

Would I purchase?? Yes. In another color of course because this shade just does not work for me!!

    Have you guys tried any of these products?? What is your favorite Revlon product??

Disclaimer: These products were sent to me for review. However all opinions were my own.

I love the navy blue polish! So cool -- especially with a neutral shirt and jeans. It would look totally glam.

It's fun to meet other Canadian bloggers :) I enjoy honest posts like this -- even though the company chose you, you still told your honest opinion; there's nothing worse than a blog full of positive reviews with nothing negative!! Followed you back!
