Flesh Beauty is Revlon’s *new* prestige makeup line. It was created by Linda Wells to convey the power of all skin tones and types.
At the center of their new line is the 40 shade stick foundation called the Firm Flesh Thickstick Foundation ($18). Makeup lines have recently been launching foundation/concealers in large shade ranges because of what Fenty Beauty did with their large shade range. Customers expect these large ranges and it should be the standard for makeup companies today. I personally did not purchase the foundation because I saw many videos that did not give the most positive reviews. I also think that the actual amount of product in the stick (.16 oz) is not enough for the price. Normally, stick foundations have about double the amount of product – although they are more expensive. It’s your call!
Other products in their launch include a Fresh Flesh Illuminating Primer ($32), Fleshpot Eye & Cheek Gloss ($20), Tender Flesh Blush ($26), Fleshy Lips Lipstick ($18), Touch Flesh Highlighting Balm ($18), Fleshcolor Eyeshadow Palette ($38), Flesh to Flesh Highlighting Powder ($28), Ripe Flesh Glistening Drops ($28), Swipe Flesh Lip Color ($24), Strong Flesh Lipstick ($18), and Proud Flesh Matte Liquid Lipcolor ($20).
I personally think that the prices are a little high, especially the eyeshadow palette and primer. As a result, I only bought the two products that were in my budget and that I was most excited about.
Below is the packaging – brown and pink is the color story which I really love. It’s pretty unique.
The first product that I tried was the Fleshpot Eye & Cheek Gloss. I was super excited to try this eye gloss because of the “glossy eye” look that has grown in popularity this past year. I’ve been eyeing the Kevyn Aucoin Exotique Diamond Eye Gloss, but I couldn’t justify the $38 price.
The Flesh eye gloss is beautiful in the container – it does have an orange tint, but it applies clear with reflective sparkles. I swiped a little bit of the gloss on my eyes and it was super easy to blend. About 20 minutes after application, the gloss started to crease on my eyes. Not sure if this happens with eye glosses since this is the first I have tried, but it was pretty disappointing. My mascara also kept transferring to my lid. As excited I was about this product, it will unfortunately be going back to Ulta.
The second product that I purchased was the Tender Flesh Blush in “Glaze”. This color is stunning and it very pigmented. I especially love the fingerprint in their powder products. I am definitely keeping this one and I totally recommend that you try it also! It comes in a total of 8 shades that are meant to compliment all skin tones.
