Overall Grade: B+
Over the weekend, I went to CVS to check out their clearance sale offerings. I didn't find too much, which is actually a good thing, but I did grab two Revlon ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powders in Sunkiss and Suntan Matte. I had already purchased Brighten about a year ago so I thought I'd give the 2 other shades a shot.
The Packaging: The powders are packaged in thick black compacts with clear covers. Surprisingly, I've dropped Brighten several times and it hasn't broken -the compacts are bulky and ugly but pretty darn sturdy.
DirectionsThe Product: Brighten and Suntan Matte are slightly sheer but buildable, so you'll definitely be able to achieve good color payoff. Sunkiss is pigmented and only required 1-2 swipes to get amazing color payoff. The powders are smooth and easy to blend. They're perfect for adding some highlight to any look or a warm, golden glow for summer.
The only downside is that I don't feel that they last long -about 3 to 4 hours tops. But for the price, they're pretty awesome.
Suntan MatteThe Color:
- Brighten- Very pale ballet pink with silver shimmer
- Sunkiss- Deep metallic golden bronze with gold shimmer
- Suntan Matte- Warm matte golden tan with minor gold shimmer
Where To Buy: CVS
I can't find it online at any of the usual drugstore websites so I think these may be getting discontinued. However, they are available at LOTS of places online (amazon, discount sites, etc.) so not to worry. Just be sure to only buy from sellers you trust!
