Review | Revlon Evening Opulence collection fall & winter 2013/14

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

Every season Revlon treats us to a new make-up collection, and this fall and winter are no exception. The Revlon fall and winter collection of 2013/14 is called Evening Opulence and consists of three new lip gloss colors, two new nail polish colors and three new eyeshadow quads. Revlon recently sent me five of the eight new Evening Opulence products (I guess they assumed that I already have enough eyeshadow*) and today I’d like to show them to you.

Bejeweled, Adorned and Embellished all have a pleasant and very moisturizing formula that smoothly glides on my lips without feeling sticky. Bejeweled has very little color though, and it adds mostly just shine. It’s the perfect lip gloss for those who like to keep it subtle or who like to put the focus on the eyes.

Adorned and Embellished on the other hand are both very pigmented, so if you’re not afraid to go bold then these two are definitely the way to go for you. Beware though, because Embellished does have some issues with evenness and it also tends to emphasize the lines on my lips a bit. Adorned doesn’t do that at all and has a perfectly even and opaque finish. So if you’re looking for a fuss-free application and finish, then Adorned would be your best choice.

As far as wear goes all three colors are more or less the same. Even the two bright colors easily survive a meal and they never completely disappear, not even after several hours. They just slowly turn from a bright lip gloss into a more subtle lip stain.

So in short, Embellished is a bit of a letdown in terms of finish, but other than that the three new ColorBurst Lipgloss glosses from the Evening Opulence collection definitely do not disappoint.

The formula of both Seductive and Rich is great. Both colors are easy to apply, are fast-drying and are not prone to tip wear or chipping. They’re not completely identical though, because it takes at least two coats of Seductive for a nice and even finish, whereas one layer of Rich already does the trick. So while I’m happy with both nail polishes, Rich definitely does better in terms of quality and – for me at least – also in terms of color.

Bottom line?

I had to get used to some of the colors from the collection (especially the bright pink and the dark berry lip gloss were way out of my comfort zone) and there are some quality differences when it comes to the coverage and finish of the products, but one thing is for sure:  Revlon’s new Evening Opulence collection is sexy, über feminine and perfect for the upcoming holidays. My two favorite products from the collection? The Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in Adorned and  the Revlon Nail Enamel in Rich.

The Revlon Evening Opulence ColorBurst Lipgloss and Nail Enamel are respectively sold for approximately 17.90 and 14.90 CHF.

Which of these new Revlon Evening Opulence products do you like best?

  1. I am obsessed with makeup and this collection looks Amazing. Especially I love Bejeweled formula for lips and Rich for nails which is giving a great duochrome effect.

    xoxo

  2. I love all 3 glosses on you (you have such a beautiful face!) but I would go for the first one as I’m older and it’s better to go for lighter shades. Love both nail polishes too, but my heart goes for the first one!
    Mafalda ❤

  3. Wow Adorned is practically NEON! I like the two nail polishes as well. I’m not too sure how Rich would look on me, but the color is interesting anyways!

  4. Bejeweled is a real beauty, it doesn’t ask for attention but it’s certainly there! Ah silver nailpolish so pretty! And festive, can’t go wrong with glitters on your nails.

  5. De producten zien er allemaal zo mooi uit! Vooral van de lipgloss vind ik Adorned heel erg mooi en van de nagellak de kleur Seductive. Ook al is het wel jammer dat het wat aandacht nodig heeft om hem egaal dekkend te krijgen, maar ik vind die donkerpaarse kleur op de nagels gewoon zo mooi staan.

  6. These look like some very lovely color! I agree that the bright pink does take some time getting used to, but I really like it on your lips! hehe, I always buy all these bright fun colored lipstick and then realize that I can’t pull it off so I leave it.

  7. I’m not usually drawn to bright pink lip colours, but Adorned looks so pretty. The colour payoff is amazing – I would have never guessed it was from a lip gloss!

  8. Uf, unlike you, that bright fuchsia pink is definitely in my comfort zone!!:D I can’t believe how pigmented it is, and if it actually stays on even better. And I’ve been looking for a nail polish like Rich since FOREVER. I know what’s on my Santa wish list…:)

  9. Adorned vind ik echt mooi, wow! Wat een super kleur. De rest van de collectie vind ik wat betreft de kleuren ‘mwahh’ als ik eerlijk mag zijn. Maar kleur is altijd een kwestie van smaak natuurlijk ;-)

  10. Oh, ik houd van Revlon dus dit zie ik graag. Mooie lipglosjes en nagellakken! Ik ben vooral fan Embellished, want die zou denk ik ook wel bij mij passen, maar jij kunt ze alledrie héél goed hebben :D
