I was looking around online when I stumbled upon Revlon’s site. Now, Revlon is to me, one of the most unexciting brands around. Yes, I love their lip colours and I’m told that their loose powder and foundations are good, but you have to admit that as a brand, its quite unexciting.
Until now, that is.
Look what Revlon has, that we don’t get here in Malaysia?
A Revlon Mineral makeup collection!
The Colorstay Mineral Collection has a mineral powder eyeshadow trio, a mineral powder blush and the Colorstay Mineral Foundation. The Mineral foundation looks like its a liquid but according to the Revlon website, its a powder foundation with a brush in the cap, like L’oreal. Interesting! The one that strikes my fancy the most is the blush (but of course!) I wonder when we’ll see this one come in.
The bottle in the picture is a Revlon Custom Creations Foundation. It comes in various shades but there is a dial on the cover that you can twist to mix the foundation to the EXACT color of your skin. I think the colours blend as they are pumped out. A bit gimmicky but I can see it selling like hot cakes to people who want the PERFECT foundation.
Revlon too has a limited edition collection which they also had last year. That was the collection with the gold swirl on the berry blush and that midnight lipstick swirly thing. I was quite unimpressed with that collection. But not with this one!
Just look at that blush! A Floral Affair by Revlon. It looks rather like the blush from Clinique with the flower on it. Very pretty! There are 4 colour combinations too. Can’t wait till it gets here.
Then there’s a Mix and Mingle lip palette with lovely swirly patterns on it. Very pretty too although lip palettes aren’t really my thing. Beetrice wrote about it too previously so that makes 2 of us waiting to see it in person.
The Make a Sheen eyeshadow palette looks quite interesting too. I hope the colour is pigmented because the neutral earth tones look nice. Oh and that Pinch Me gel blush looks like a Benefit Benetint knock off? Interesting!
I also saw on another site that Revlon has a kabuki brush which isn’t on the main Revlon site. I’m not sure why. I’m always on the lookout for a good kabuki brush that isn’t too expensive so has anyone tried the Revlon Kabuki brush and have a comment to share?
I wonder when these collections will reach our Malaysian shores. Or if they ever will!
p/s This is NOT an April Fool’s joke! 😉

I just got my hands on one of the Mix & Mingle palettes!! 😀 *glee*…come come and try…
I saw the Revlon mineral foundation, but haven’t had a chance to try it out yet. Also saw the limited edition makeup. I tried out the Make a Sheen and to be honest, I find it so-so; kinda reminded me of their previous collection, what was it again? Something similar lah.
Still, I’m sure this will be cheaper in Malaysia. The Mix and Mingle lip palette is over AUD20 here!
my gosh!!!! i’m drooling for the floral palette…..can somebody help to CP pleasee?? 🙂
girl, i am all for the brush! i am STARING at that kabuki. i want another kabuki badly. BB’s started feeling strachy on my cheeks.
I want everything.
Beetrice: Ooh! Liking it?
Tine: Makeup is sooooo expensive in Australia! I’m sure it’ll be much cheaper here.
Reeka: I’m sure we’ll be seeing it soon so patience is key.
Jojoba: I haven’t heard about it and I saw it on a Japanese Revlon site. Wondering if it’ll come here.

I’m waiting to see the floral affair and pinch me gel blush.

I used mineral powder foundation (the one that comes with the swivel brush)… didn’t stay ‘on me’ for 16 hours as claimed (maybe it’s because I’ve got oily skin???) Did the whole sha-bang of moisturiser and primer before the foundation but sigh… by lunch my pores were waving back at me through the mirror….
I’m now on their liquids (the one that changes from white paste to skin tone). I’m using Fair and it’s been 2 weeks now since i bought it – so far so good… as the matter of fact, this product goes into my ‘archives’ of “good-easy to apply-n-stays on my face” beauty products!
I frequent their website and now contemplating of getting their 2in1 brow highlights. I remember long time back, Revlon used to carry their ‘one side pencil the other a gel applicator’ for brows. I regret not getting it then… now I’m rummaging through every Revlon display at every Watson outlets in KV for this product! If anyone can find one, please let me know!!! xD
I’ve got to agree the majority here: Revlon in Malaysia doesn’t have impressive range – unlike their counterparts overseas…. sigh…. why ‘lah?!’ Deprives ‘vain-pots’ like me from having fun! Heheh…

I am sad to know that you described Revlon as ‘unexciting’? Though it is a drug-store brand in the US, and in Malaysia it is still a drug-store brand. BUT it still is expensive. People would rather go to the Silkygirl makeup counter than stopping by at Revlon’s. Make up artists in the States do use some Revlon products to do their makeup. Revlon Colorstay Foundation,and the rest of the Colorstay range is a big hit!
Revlon are only lacking in promotion here in Asia, not much emphasis has been given to their products here, except little ads here an there,and that’s the real ‘un-excite-ment’ of it all.
I am a Revlon lover, and I have to disagree on people saying it bad or not popular.
Wait, that’s the thing about Malaysians, they only go for high end makeup brands, because Malaysian loves brands. They love to splurge on things, that they think is cool, it is high quality, but if we really know about makeup, we won’t just go for MAC,Lancome, Channel, Dior.. etc.
I’m not offended but it might interest you that my post was written in 2008 and since then I’ve found many good things to rave about from Revlon. Products from Revlon I’ve reviewed are in this link. I’ve always liked Revlon lip products and their face base products too.
I will stand by my statement that Revlon as a brand is unexciting but they have good items too. Its also not wrong to like high end brands if we can afford it – there are many good things but also not everything is good. We’re all here to find the best products from each brand – the purpose I blog 🙂
