A Brighter Summer Look – Revlon Expressions Experiment

This post brought to you by Revlon. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hello there lovelies! 

So.. you know I've been feeling sort of frumpy lately… To combat that I recently talked about expanding my wardrobe soon with my anniversary gift money from the hubs and today I have another routine refreshing idea to share with you! 

The Revlon Expression Experiment! I have been happily testing out a few fun Revlon products lately and I am excited to share my experience with you!

The cosmetics that I received to test out are in fun, bright colors! Perfect for summer

Here's a short vlog about the Revlon products that I received, including the eye shadow and makeup primer, as well as a few words encouraging YOU to try a little something new… 🙂 {I apologize in advance for my crazy hand movements!}

There are a few things specifically that I really enjoyed incorporating into my makeup routine that I'd like to touch on a little further. 

First up… The Revlon ColorStay nail polish trio! 
I received a top coat, base coat and a pretty Indigo blue! 

Revlon Colorstay Trio

The polish was super easy to apply. You just apply each coat, waiting for dry time in between. So far I've worn it for over a week. I'm pretty hard on my hands and nails, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it held up really well! Much better than many other nail polish manicures I've tried!

Next up… the red lipstick! I received a red lip gloss, red lip butter, and red lipstick. I've never really tried red lips so this was something WAY out of the box for me… And you know what? I felt so sassy and fun wearing it! 

The red lip butter was smooth and creamy but didn't feel heavy while worn. 

Revlon Lip Gloss

I posted my lip gloss picture shown above to Instagram and received so many likes and compliments on it! Thanks to those of you that weighed in!

Like I said before, it was something new for me, but I give red lips two thumbs up!! Wearing the lipstick made me feel so empowered! Like I could tackle anything! Really, Revlon as a brand is such an empowering tool for women! It's amazing how a small tweak in your makeup routine can make you feel like a whole new person!

I strongly encourage each of you lovelies to try something new this week, this month, this summer! If you're not sure where to start, the Revlon Expression Experiment Facebook application is a great place to look. They have challenges you can join in, examples of other women stepping outside their comfort zones and just a whole lot of fun and encouragement!

Tell me friends… Have YOU tried red lips? What did you think?
What are some other makeup tricks you use to feel and look your best?

Here's to a brighter, more empowered summer!!!
