Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Foundation & Concealer | Review & Swatches

Affiliate

 

I am loving all of these new drugstore releases. Nothing is better than affordable new makeup. Click here to see my previous review on the new L’ORÉAL Pro Glow Foundation and Concealer reviews.

Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Foundation

What it is: 

Instantly erase the appearance of dark spots, age spots, and hyperpigmentation with Revlon’s Youth FX Fill + Blur Foundation. Powered by innovative age corrective technology with micro-fillers and optical diffusers, this formula works to fill and blur lines and wrinkles for immediate results.

 REVIEW:

I bought two shades because the first shade I bought as too light. I have the shades 200 Nude and 220 Natural Beige. See more swatches blended out below at the bottom of the post. 

This is a very interesting formula and so far I really like it. It is a very thick medium-full coverage foundation. It glides on to the face really nicely and almost has a primer feel to it. It definitely helps blur fine lines and pores and really helps smooth everything out. I like to apply it with my fingers and then blend it out with my Beauty Blender. It looks nice and hydrating after it’s applied. I have dry skin so I really like it. If you have oily skin I don’t think you will like it.

It lasts most of the day but it did start to breakup a little bit around my nose.

I will say the only downfall is the price and the shade selection. I feel like they need more shades and the price should be around $12 at the most, especially since it is drugstore. 

But so far I think this is a great foundation for the drugstore.

 

Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Concealer

What it does: 

Revlon’s Youth FX Fill + Blur Concealer dramatically transforms the appearance of crow’s feet. Powered by innovative age corrective technology with micro-fillers and optical diffusers, this formula works to fill and blur lines and wrinkles for immediate results.

REVIEW:

I had high hopes for this concealer because I really loved the foundation. This concealer isn’t bad by any means but it wasn’t the best drugstore concealer I have ever used. I was expecting this to be really high coverage and great for dry skin. I would say this is more of a light to medium coverage. It doesn’t cover everything and the consistency is very lightweight. It dries really quickly so you need to blend fast. 

I would suggest using a color corrector under this if you have discoloration since it’s not full coverage. It looks nice throughout the day and wears well. I think oily and dry skin could both wear it. 

I do feel like it’s too pricey for the drugstore so if you can get a coupon then definitely use it. 

 

SWATCHES:

Foundation: 200 Nude, 220 Natural Beige.
Concealer: 03 Light Medium

L’ORÉAL Infallible Pro Glow Powder & Concealer | Review & Swatches

Affiliate

 

I have super dry skin so I couldn’t wait for these to come out. I have been putting these to the test for two weeks now. Keep reading to see how I liked them.

L’ORÉAL Infallible Pro Glow Powder

 

 

Review:

I bought mine in the color 24 Natural Beige. The color is perfect for me. It’s not to yellow and not too pink, it’s the perfect neutral shade for my skin tone. 

When I saw this I thought it was just going to be a normal powder that is suitable for dry skin. But I was wrong, this is just a nice silky powder that has a slight sheen to it. Half of the powder looks like a highlighter and the other half is just powder. When I first saw that it was a turnoff, but I actually like it now.

The powder is silky and smooth and when you swirl your brush in the two it really just gives your face a beautiful glow. It isn’t glittery or shimmery, it’s just a nice glow. I love using it as a finishing powder after my foundation and concealer is done.

I think the only downfall is the price. I think it should be priced more around the $8.99 mark. If you use your ULTA $3.50 coupon then it’s definitely worth it. 

 

L’ORÉAL Infallible Pro Glow Concealer

 

 

Review:

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this!! Concealer can be tricky if you have dry skin and finding a drugstore concealer is a little more tricky. 

I bought three shades: 02 Creamy Natural, 03 Nude Beige, and 04 Natural Beige

This concealer definitely isn’t a true full coverage concealer. It’s lightweight and a thinner consistency. You can build it up a bit but it looks better with one coat. 

It doesn’t cling to dry patches and looks nice and hydrating under the eyes. It isn’t glowy or shimmery in anyway, I would say it’s just hydrating.

I personally like more coverage in a concealer but it’s nice on natural days or light makeup days. 

The concealer blends out really nicely and looks good throughout the day.

I was ,however, disappointed in the shade selection, I got three and they still seem too dark. They also have a really yellow tone. I like mine to be a little more pink or neutral.

I like the packaging and the doe foot applicator. 

It’s a pretty good concealer for the drugstore I just wish it was a little more full coverage and I think they need to come out with more shades. 

Swatches:

02 Creamy Natural, 03 Nude Beige, 04 Natural Beige

NYX Love Contours All Palette | Review & Swatches

Affiliate

 

NYX Love Contours All Palette 

Nothing can keep us from sculpting – Love Contours All! This uh-mazing NYX Cosmetics palette has literally everything you need for complete definition. It includes pigmented eyeshadows in edgy, neutral tones, blendable highlighting and contouring shades, and beautiful brow powders. Yes! You can create a whole look using one sleek palette. Hold on, this heart just skipped a beat.

 

REVIEW:

This palette, like most NYX palettes, is amazing!!! If you love any of the NYX most recent palettes like the Avant Pop Palette, you will love this one. This palette is really good!! It has everything you will ever need for many different looks. You can use all of these shades on your eyes and in many different ways, they are so versatile. I love all of the shades in this palette!

All of these shades are so pigmented, you can see by the swatches. They also work so well with your brush and blend really nicely. The matte shades in these palettes are my favorite. The shimmer shades are nice too but I just love matte eyeshadows. Do you see how black that shade is?? YEAH!

The contour and highlight shades are so amazing as well! They are so pigmented and the perfect shades.

The only downfall is they are a little powdery and there’s some fallout, but I can live with that.

This palette is totally worth it and if you can get it from Ulta with the buy 1 get 1 50% off, it is even more worth it!

Hard Candy Look Pro Matte Eyeshadow Palette | Review & Swatches

 

Hard Candy Look Pro Matte Eyeshadow Palette

  • Cost: $10
  • Where to buy: I bought it at my local Walmart

This palette contains 15 matte eyeshadow shades and 4 eyeshadow brushes. I can’t find this online but looked everywhere. This is a new palette from Hard Candy that I found at Walmart.

 

REVIEW:

For the drugstore and $10 this palette is not that bad at all. I love matte palettes and nothing is better than fining a drugstore matte palette. It is a pretty good palette and you get a good amount of shades. I really love the shades that they picked. You have a full row of light matte shades, some warm shades, cool shades and some nice deep shades.

As far as the formula goes, it is ok. I wouldn’t say it is the best formula but it definitely isn’t bad. When I first swatched them with my finger, the formula was SOOO smooth and creamy. I have never touched a drugstore palette with such a smooth formula. They swatch really smoothly and blend pretty well. I will say that when you use a brush they aren’t as pigmented. They are a little lighter but I still think they are really pretty!!

The only downfall is they are a little powdery and have some fallout. I also wasn’t impressed with the deep shades. They are a little too light for me and they don’t really build up. I will say that the middle row is my favorite!! Overall for the price this is a good palette especially if you are starting with building up a makeup collection.

NYX Cosmic Metals Shadow Palette Review & Swatches | Spring 2017

 

 

Create a spectrum of out-of-this-world eye looks with the Cosmic Metals Shadow Palette – a new eyeshadow set inspired by NYX Cosmetics Professional Makeup’s beloved Cosmic Metals Lip Cream. Powered by six pigment-packed eyeshadows, this gorgeous set loads your lids with rich, metallic color and incredible color payoff.

 

REVIEW:

This palette was just okay, it didn’t really WOW me. Partly because I LOVE matte shadows and these are all shimmery shadows. If you love shimmery shadows or the colors of these shadows then you will love this palette.

The eyeshadow formula is really good. It is nice and creamy and pigmented. these are dry packed shadows but they almost feel wet when you apply them on the skin. It seems like that happens with most foiled shadows though. They blend really nicely and look beautiful on the lids. They will crease if you don’t use a primer. But other than that I think they are great drugstore foiled shadows.
