Revlon’s new ShadowLinks are a collection of 30 individual eyeshadows that can be linked together to create customized palettes. Revlon doesn’t bother to make any specific claims about their newest eyeshadows (a wise decision). This review is for the shade Melon, the only shade that really appealed to me. Each ShadowLinks contains 1.4 grams (.05 oz) and sells for three or four bucks. Click through for a full review.

NYX Butter Lipstick Review
Almay calls their new Color+Care Liquid Lip Balms a “lifesaver for your lips! Color+Care Liquid Lip Balms combine the lip conditioning care of a balm with the shiny color of your favorite gloss. Shiny color drenches lips with 2x the hydration as lip loving conditioners provide 194% more moisture for softer, smoother lips over time.” Almay goes on to mention that this gloss-balm hybrid is non sticky, gluten free, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested. Color+Care Liquid Lip Balms are available in ten shades, this review is for Rosy Lipped. Each of these glosses contains 7ml (.24oz) and retails for around six dollars.

Empty product review: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Brightener. This is the perfect product for highlighting my fair skin! This does not conceal on it’s own, I only use it for brightening. I love the color and concistency. It’s a nice light pink tone. I set it with Ben Nye Cameo Powder which is also fair with a pink undertone. The consistency is nice and thin and it doesn’t set too fast. I love using the sponge applicator which is antibacterial. You can remove the sponge if you would like and just twist the product out of the tube. Lucky for me my packaging never broke. I especially love this for my oily skin. I can highlight all the high points of my face without using shimmer. It gives natural dimension to my face. I recommend this shade for fair skin tones and the Neutralizer for medium or tan skintones. I am definitely going to repurchase this. It might even be holy grail status!
