Revlon Galaxy Dream Palette vs. Kat Von D Alchemist Palette

Revlon Galaxy Dream vs. KVD Alchemist

The second I set eyes on the Revlon Galaxy Dream Palette (sent complimentary for review) I immediately thought of the Kat Vo D Alchemist Palette and wondered if it was an affordable dupe. The Revlon Galaxy Dream Palette retails for $19.99 CAD and the Kat Von D Alchemist Palette retails for $44.00 CAD. They both feature non-traditional highlight shades. By non-traditional I mean shades like pink, blue and green compared to the standard champaign, gold and peach highlighters that we frequently in the beauty community.

Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara

Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara

Hi guys! Influenster recently sent me the Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara complimentary for review as part of a recent campaign. Since I loved the last Revlon mascara that I tried, I was really excited when I saw I was selected to participate. The Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara is a tubing mascara that deposits fibres around your lashes for volume and length. Based on it’s description alone I was quite optimistic for this one (unlike the last mascara that I reviewed!).

Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara

The brush on this mascara is fairly average in size and tapers a bit towards the tip to make it super easy to use. If I can manage to not get mascara all over my under eye area when coating my bottom lashes then I call it a success! The flat style of the tube is nice as well as it doesn’t feel bulky in the hands and can be maneuvered easily. Also, since it doesn’t roll it is GREAT for photographing (blogger problems, am I right?!). Continue reading

Mani Monday: Revlon Facets of Fuchsia

Revlon Facets of Fuchsia

Hi guys! Welcome to the first Mani Monday of 2017, kicking off the year I’ve got Revlon Facets of Fuchsia on my nails. This was a limited edition shade from Revlon that I picked up a few bottles of. It was love at first sight and I needed to make sure I had backups! Even so, I haven’t worn this polish in quite some time so I thought it was the perfect time to dig it out. Revlon Facets of Fuchsia is a glitter polish (fuchsia glitter pieces, who’d guess?) suspended in a black jelly base. My preferred way of wearing it is layered over a black cream polish to add opacity. Revlon Facets of Fuchsia is actually a dupe of Deborah Lippmann’s Bad Romance which appears to also be discontinued.

OPI Nail Envy Maintenance (1 coat)

Revlon Dramatic Definition Mascara

Revlon-Dramatic-Definition-Mascara2.jpg

Hi guys! Every 3-4 months it is suggested that you replace your mascara. I have been trying to do this quarterly to make it easier to keep track. I’ve been using theRevlon Dramatic Definition Mascara since the beginning of May and I am ready to share my thoughts on it!

The Revlon Mascara collection has something for everyone… They have a formula for volume, length, volume + length, dramatic definition and an all-in-one. I chose the Dramatic Definition formula as it claims to separate and define every lash which seemed appealing to me. It was a toss up between this one and the all-in-one and I think I chose wisely.

The wand is plastic and tiered to make sure that you don’t miss a lash. It’s fairly average sized so it is fairly easy to work with. It’s even pretty easy to use with your bottom lashes! The formula glides on and dries to a nice weightless finish. This is one of those mascaras where if you happen to touch your lashes, you don’t feel like you’re wearing mascara. There has been a few times where I’ve panicked because I thought I forgot to put on mascara! Continue reading
