During my last visit to Ulta, I noticed a couple of new Revlon displays! I'm kicking myself that I didn't take pictures of them, but thought I'd give you a heads up here on the blog. The first display was for Revlon Skinlights- that's an older product that is making a comeback! There was also a display with quite a few different blush colors, along with several bronzer/highlighter combos that reminded me of Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips or Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks. I picked up a couple of items that I'm trying out, and I'll make sure to review them for you soon! :)
Skinlights are basically a liquid highlight type of product. They've been re-released as part of the "PhotoReady" line, and there are several shades available. I believe there was peach, pink and bronze... and the shade I got which is Bare Light. I struggled to get a good shot of the sheen that this product gives off- but the picture on the right is a partially sheered-out swatch. These Skinlights seem to provide a very subtle glow... they have a pearly finish without flecks of glitter. I could even see these being used as a primer, or as a highlight on top of your makeup look. I chose Bare Light because it seemed to be the most natural and I thought it would mesh well with my skin tone. I plan to do a full review on this once I've had a chance to experiment with it more!
There was a really pretty selection of blushes in a separate display, and many of the colors seemed more vibrant that what Revlon usually has in their line. I opted for one of the brightest shades called Haute Pink to see just how much punch it really had. There is some shimmer in this blush, which I think tones down the overall color payoff. It's definitely a color that I'll use, but it doesn't strike me as anything vastly different from other drugstore blushes. Definitely not as impressive as the Coastal Scents blushes that I showed in this haul video!
Just wanted to let you know that those new displays are out there, in case you're interested! Have you run across any other new drugstore products lately? Let me know! :)
