Revlon Skinlights Custom Lipcolours – Rose Quartz
I was presented this as a wedding gift by my cousin and due to more makeup than I ever used in my life, this ws pushed to the back of my vanity kit. A recent cleaning bout got it of oblivion and it has been receiving love ever since . 🙂
Since this was a gift and was purchased during her international travels, I do not know the price. I do know that this was not available in India till about a month ago. If it was launched post that, someone enlighten me… I would love to check out other palettes like this.
The palette has 4 Colour Dip pans, 1 Lip Effects pan and 1 Colourglaze pan. It has a mirror and a small lip brush too. All of this is housed in a grey plastic casing and sealed with a transparent plastic cover. This is how it looks from the front.
Pans numbered 2 to 4 are Color Dips, 1 is the Colorglaze and 6 is the Lip Effects. Check out the swatches.
These are single swipe of each pan made with the brush that came along. See how pigmented the colours are? Colourglaze and Lip effects work as glosses. While Lip Effects just adds shine, colourglaze adds a heavy doze of shimmer to the already shimmery colours. So girls, if shimmer is not your cup of tea, you must steer clear of this. But if like me, you don’t mind shimmer, this is a wonderful lip palette to have. I can also go very sheer on application using a very light hand. They give the effect of tinten lip balm in that case.
The best part about this palette is that you can mix and match colours. I mixed 3 and 5 to get a rosy brown and 1 and 2 for a tined down red. I was expecting coralish colour out of 2 and 4 but that did not happen. So you see, the possibilities are endless… and u get a new colour everytime ☺ The staying power of these is decent. It lasts me 3-4 hours with a coffee and some munching though it does fade a bit. But then, that is expected if you eat and drink.
The palette is very handy to carry along but the snap lock may not survive a ladies bag! With tons of other stuff around it, the lock can snap open and contaminate your product and spoil the bag….! The mirror is good enough when you need to do touch ups or re apply. But you can not see your full face in it; just the lips. The brush is ok as well. It hasn’t fanned out or shed too much so far. I have no base for comparison as I do not have a lip brush from any branded company.
1. You get 4 colors and 2 glosses. You can Mix and Match them, creating many more lip colours. This is a perfect travel accessory. To ensure that the lock does not snap open, I have a velvet pouch that I stuff this in when I carry it.
2. The brush and mirror and good for re application.
3. It lasts better than your average Lotus and Lakme lipsticks but less than all day long ones. Decent lasting power
4. The product is quite moisturizing and does not need a balm underneath
5. Though the swatches are pigmented, it goes relatively sheer on my lips and I can build it upto the amount I want.
6. There is a decent amount of product and I don’t see me hitting the pan anytime soon
1. Not available in India (The Biggest Con)
2. Mixing colours to get an exact shade you want needs practice and can be frustrating if you are in a hurry. This is not your go-to product for the 10 minute dash!
3. All the colours are quite shimmery. Though I do not mind it all that much, I would have preferred at least one of the 4 lip colours to be non shimmery. I can always use the gloss to add shimmer
4. There is no ingredient list mentioned on the case. It came packed in a plastic wrapping and that did not have any of it too.
5. I find it easy to work with a lipstick that I can just slather on and move. Painting my lips with a brush requires a lot of effort IMO! Yeah yeah, lazy gal I know. 😉
Overall, I like the product for being a lip palette with a twist and give it 3.5 stars on 5. I have deducted 0.5 for lack of ingredients and another 0.5 for it not being available in India. The other 0.5 is for all of the other cons put together.
