This month I’m lucky enough to be working with Revlon and testing out the brand new anti-ageing products in their Youth FX range.
Revlon have been a staple high street makeup brand for me that I used growing up. They’ve pretty much nailed high street makeup and their move into skincare is something I’m totally here for!
Since I’ve only just received them, this post will be a first impressions post and I’ll check back in with you guys in 6 weeks to see what I think.
Revlon have created 4 targeted products to instantly ‘fill and blur’ to transform the look of lines and wrinkles. Since I’m well into my 20’s now, I’m really interested in skincare and preserving my youthful (cough) skin for as long as possible.
The products available in the Youth FX range are:
Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Primer for Forehead
An interesting brush applied primer that specifically targets forehead wrinkles and blurs their appearance.
Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Primer for Face/Neck
A second primer that acts to target wrinkles on face or neck with micro-fillers and optical diffusers that smooth, soften, and blur lines and wrinkles.
Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Foundation
described as a ‘lightweight, hydrating formula (that) works to fill in and blur lines and wrinkles with micro-fillers and optical diffusers. As the appearance of lines and wrinkles are smoothed, this high coverage foundation erases the look of uneven tone, age spots and hyperpigmentation.’ Available in 7 different shades.
Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur Concealer (6 Shades)
A lightweight, hydrating concealer that uses micro fillers to smooth and fill finer lines while concealing puffiness and darkness.
I’m very intrigued as to why they created two different types of primer. I had a look at the ingredients to see if the components of the two were different or if it was just a marketing ploy. It turns out the ingredients do vary slightly so I’ll have to see which one works better. Although it is interesting to know beforehand that the main (first listed) ingredient in the primer for face and neck is actually water.
I’m most looking forward to trying out the Fill + Blur foundation despite it only having 7 shades (ivory, buff, nude, sand beige, medium beige, caramel and cappuccino). Although there is a bigger shade range (well, 12 shades) in the states, I would love to see this expand. From a brands point of view, I’m guessing they’re probably going to see if the innovative formula is one that will take off.
The foundation has a thick creamy texture, almost mousse like. It spreads easily and the coverage surprised me. I got shade 240 which is ‘Medium Beige’. Honestly, it’s not too bad for me. It would definitely be good for those who are shade NC30 in MAC and Rattan in Estee Lauder. Swatches will be coming soon as soon as I’ve used them properly.
Overall I love the idea that skincare and makeup can be combined to create a functional product. Revlon really seem to be onto something here and I can’t wait to see it take off!
I’ll update this post in a few weeks once I’ve tried the products out for a while and can give a true and honest review 🙂
