Revlon Beyond Natural Cream Gloss (No swatch, just rambling)

If I like something well enough, I usually go for a second, if it's really good, I go for third...But I only liked the Revlon Beyond Natural Cream Lip Gloss a tad bit...how did I end up with 2 more?

Well, they were buy on get one free...so for the same price, a sane person would walk away with two tubes instead of one...Anyway, I wish I walked home with zero instead... Here is my thought about the three I got, as a little round up.

Here is the first tube of Revlon Cream Lip gloss, Peach which I got quite a while ago (It usually takes me 2 month before I review the stuff I buy.) because I wanted a shimmer free peachy gloss, it works rather well if you give it a few seconds to blend and settle.

Pink is a soft pink and it has an infinite amount of super tiny silver shimmer. I personally don't like how pink or shimmer look on me as the shimmer tend to make my lips look bigger (than they needs to be) and pink tend to make me look sick (my natural lip color is deeper-pink/red) . Anyway, the combination actually doesn't look bad on my lips as the color isn't too overly girly. The shimmer isn't too annoying either since they are so fine.

Texture wise, it's the same a Peach, it's a bit on the thick side, but give it a while it will settle into a relatively natural finish.
Rosy is in a deeper peachy shade, it has some semi-transparent shimmer that doesn't show at all. (Love it!) The shade is same level of color intensity as my lips but it's peachy instead of red (my lips has quite a bit of mauve undertone, I think) I really love the gloss when it comes to the color, and it also seems to be easier to blend.

Actually, the color is somewhat like their Super Lustrous lip gloss is Nude Lustre, a flesh-pink that's very natural, wearable. In fact, I like it a lot better than nude lustre because instead of glossy, it gives a soft and natural shine and a decent amount of peachy tint.

But where is the swatch to back up my claim?
Since I have been loving Rosy quite a bit, I used it for 3,4 times before getting to do a swatch...before I even got a chance, the tube turned rancid within 3 days and started to have that horrible sour smell. I mean, it was sealed when I got it and it smelled alright the first one or two times. It means that this has gone bad from inside...How gross is that?

Anyway, I returned the 2 right away and maybe I will get another tube of Rosy somewhere else and hopefully it will smell alright.

  2. oh one of my tube glosses went like that too. but i've been using it for quite sometime. it's pretty foul that it went sour so soon...

    what i did with mine, i squeezed out some gloss on tissue and gave it a good wipe down. esp the cap with some alcohol. and the lip piece just dont get any inside the tube, and it helped. good as new =3 you can try it if you havnt already thrown it out
    =P

    I did try the standard procedure...But since the 2,3 big suqueezes/wipe down are not enough,I though more isn't going to help much so it's easier for me to just return the garbage than putting more effort on it.

  5. i see, that sucks D= but yea good for you to return it. must've been a pain though to have to purposely go back in for something like that and cheap too. i guess if it was expensive i would be pissed off and disappointed at the brand too.

  6. I've always been curious about the Beyond Natural lipgloss but I think I'll pass after your review. Haha! Actually I have the Beyond Natural lipbalm in Nude. It's okay but I hate the shape of it so rarely use it. I quite like Revlon lip products in general (I guess that makes me "auntie"? haha :P )

    they are not bad glosses...if you spend time to rub it, it will look really nice if your lip doesn't peel and are well moisturized...(If they are already, you might as well just leave them bare.)

    Anyway, I do like Rosy quite a bit...and I got a 2nd tube already. (It doesn't smell that good, but at least not rancid like the one from CVS.)
