Ranting About Revlon.

I've always been a huge fan of matte eyeshadows. They always work better on my eyes when I'm wearing eyeliner - which is 5 days a week. Shimmer and metallic eyeshadows seem to coat my eyeliner so I tend to stick with matte shadows most of the time.

I was very keen on trying this Revlon range of matte and metallic shadows until I seen this ad.

Her makeup looks dirty with a bit of a drug addict edge. I'd even go as far as to say that she looks like she had been partying for the last 10 hours and her makeup smudged all over her face so Revlon just applied makeup over the makeup she was already wearing.

Jessica Biel is gorgeous but the makeup that has been done looks pathetic.

The white does not work on top of the black, her eyebrows look red, the black is too heavy on her eyes, it's not evenly applied and it looks like she has no mascara on.

Altogether it looks like a cheap, chalky and a mess. It annoys me just to talk about it.

The other ad she did for foundation is no better. I don't think she has a face for cosmetics advertising.

Revlon needs to pick up it's game if they want me to buy it's products.

I so agree with you! When I saw this ad a couple months back I thought she looked ugly. The make up is not done nicely and I guess she is the kind of girl that heavy make up does not suit her. She has a face for natural make up which she wears most of the time and she looks fab and glowy. This was is a disaster. Another thing is that I've heard bad reviews from these matte shadows. They are not as pigmented. If you still want to try them, just buy one and go from there ;-)

So glad that someone agrees with me. You're right about the natural makeup. I couldn't agree with you more. She looks lovely in nudes and natural makeup. She cannot wear heavy or dark tones. It's just like a mask on her face.

Yay someone agrees with me! They could sell so much makeup if they'd hired a better artist.

I thought I was the only person who thought this. The makeup looks terrible on her. They should have thought about this before releasing this ad.

Agreed. I love Revlon's products except their eyeshadows. Terrible! Everything you said about this look is absolutely right.
