Revlon’s ColorStay Ultimate Suede in Preview

I always have a ‘just in case I need it’ lipstick hanging out in my purse. The one that I have been using for the last 6 weeks has been Revlon’s ColorStay Ultimate Suede…



My ‘go to’ shade is ‘Preview’…

This is like a high-performance lip balm. It is ultra smooth and makes my lips feel hydrated and soft. Springtime is very dry in the Rockies. I feel it around the tops of my cheeks and my lips the most. It’s great to have a lipstick that has awesome moisturizers like Colorstay.

‘Preview’ is a shade that isn’t too mauve and isn’t too pink. It’s just right!


I found the wearability to be around 3 hours before a touch-up. I picked this up at Walgreen’s for $9.99 as part of a buy one get one 1/2 price, so it cost me $7.50.  I think paying full price is a bit much at $10 for one. However, the quality is there and this color works any time for me. It’s like ‘my lips but better’ color.

Have you tried any of Revlon’s ColorStay Ultimate Suedes?

Garnier: Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream

Garnier USA is doing a global tour called ‘Garnier Greener Tour’. I posted here about attending one in Tampa, FL. I think what Garnier, and teaming up with Terracycle, is doing is so cool. Garnier graciously provided products for us to enjoy.  I love me some Garnier…

Garnier products are not new to my household. I use several of their products. The Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream is something that even my husband likes to use…

There are, actually, two different types of Moisture Rescue. I, now, have them both…

The pink gel-cream is the one I just received and it is for dry skin. The one I already have is for normal skin. The packaging clearly states which is which.

I asked my husband to try the new one as I loved the truly soothing feeling it gave me. He thought it was OK but, he liked the green one for normal skin better. He applies it right after shaving and, he says he likes the cool sensation the Moisture Rescue for normal skin gives him. Looks like we could be using both at the vanity!

I use Garnier’s Moisture Rescue after I wash my face, first thing in the morning. Even though I’m going to workout  shortly after that, I still want some moisturizer on my skin. Otherwise, I can feel my skin getting tight. Then, again, I’ll use it after my shower and before I start applying my makeup.

Moisture Rescue is very light, has barely any fragrance and absorbs into my skin effortlessly. It is easily found at mass market stores and drug stores.
