I saw these a little while ago and had to grab them! Most of the Revlon products were on sale BOGO 50% off, so it was a good excuse to give them a try.
|I wanted to pick 2 fun Spring colors so I chose (top to bottom) Hot Pink and Strawberry. Hot Pink was actually featured on Jessica Alba in one of the ads on the display so I had to give it a try to see if it was anything like it was in the ad! ;)|
|I was actually kind of impressed with the packaging to a degree. I hate when packaging feels cheap, but these feel solid. Also, I'd like to point out that (while it's a little hard to see) the applicator isn't what I'd call a true doe foot applicator because it's more of a flat paddle covered with the fuzzy stuff (so technical, I know) rather than an angled applicator. I've gotten somewhat use to using the paddle-like applicators after falling in love with Anastasia Hydrafull lipgloss.|
|Here are the ingredients for those of you that are ingredient-conscious.|
|Hot Pink - So pretty! I wondered if the little flecks would be a bit gritty, but they really weren't.|
|Hot Pink - So pretty! Now I have to point out, this is not identical to what it looked like on Jessica Alba in the ad. I love it as it is, but I hate when ads don't accurately portray products!|
|Strawberry - Doesn't that remind you of a fresh, glittery strawberry? The second I saw it I snatched it up.|
These were priced at $7.49 retail at the store I purchased them, but they were on sale BOGO 50% off, so I only paid $11.24 for 2!
Where to Buy
These can be found any place the carries Revlon cosmetics such as Walgreens, CVS, Target, etc. I purchased mine at Walgreens.
I am really impressed with these! I'm admittedly a bit of a makeup snob and I typically prefer high-end or indie cosmetics (largely due to the ingredients and performance), but these have definitely won my approval. The colors were lovely and quite pigmented, the flecks weren't gritty, and (for those of you that hate sticky gloss) these weren't super sticky. The price is reasonable and I think these glosses could stand head-to-head with a few high-end glosses I love. If you want some cute glosses to add a pop of color this Spring and you don't mind using a cruelty-free drugstore brand, definitely give these a try! And yes, from what I can find Revlon is cruelty-free unlike Maybelline and L'Oreal, unfortunately.
What do you think? Would you give these a try?
