{Review} Revlon Youth FX

Hi guys ! Happy Wednesday ? How was your Heritage day and long weekend if you had one? I still worked on Saturday and I usually have Monday's off - but I enjoyed the little bit of extra time with the kiddo. 

A little while back Revlon send me a cute Press Pack with the new Revlon Youth FX line of products. The range includes a forehead primer , foundation , concealer and face and neck primer. 

"Revlon Youth FX range of anti-ageing products that dramatically transform the look of lines and wrinkles. Developed with filling and blurring technology, all four products in the range contain a unique combination of soft focus powders that scatter light, blurring imperfections, while micro-spheres fill in wrinkles, making them less visible. Each product works in unison with the others, to ensure you look your very youthful best."

I'm 31 , and I love focusing on Anti Ageing products now. I was really excited I was sent the range to try as I love Revlon products - and let's be real any product that claims to make wrinkles and lines look less visible is always a bonus. 

Revlon Youth FX Fill and Blur Primer for Forehead R199
Okay ... I will start of with the product I didn't like. This primer is designed to target forehead lines and wrinkles. I don't have to many issues there .. but I felt it was an extra step and product for me personally. The primer has a very liquid-y consistency and dries quickly. I just wasn't blown away by it.
Revlon Youth FX Fill and Blur Primer for Neck R199
Now while I wasn't too impressed with the primer specifically for the forehead - I love the face and neck primer. This is a thick primer - but I love how smooth and blurred my skin look. I love how this primer isn't loaded with silicone and how easy the applicator is very user friendly. One pump is enough to cover my whole face. Personally - this is such a stand out product for me and I will recommend this to anyone looking for a great primer .
Revlon Youth FX Fill and Blur Concealer R199
This is a very nice hydrating and creamy concealer. This concealer comes with a click pen packaging and has a soft cushion tip. I do prefer using a beauty sponge to blend out the concealer. Personally I don't have any dark circles at this stage (thank goodness !! ) but I prefer to use concealer for a more awake look after applying foundation. 
Revlon Youth FX Fill and Blur Foundation in Natural Beige SPF20 R349
I've mentioned quite a few times , since I'm getting older and introduced Retinol products into my routine - I do notice my skin is a lot drier now than it was a year or two ago - which might be why I LOVE this foundation for everyday wear. This is a high coverage ( Personally I would say more of a medium coverage ) foundation with an SPF - something I prefer for everyday wear . This foundation wears well without getting cakey and settling into fine lines. The foundation also didn't oxidize on me (a problem I have with quite a few foundations lately ) . The foundation is also lightweight and won't feel heavy at all during the day. All downside - it's a pricier foundation from the Drugstore. It's always good to look out for specials if it's a bit too pricey for your liking - and those Clicks and Dischem points always can come in handy too. ;)

Honestly - the stand out winners from the range is definitely the foundation and primer - well worth looking into if you are on the market for some awesome new foundations or primers.

  1. Was waiting for this review. I really liked the foundation, but I don't think they have my shade. I found the shade I tested turned me pink...but I really loved the finish.

    The face primer sounds like a gem!

    1. Oh no - that sucks. The primer is a real gem . xx

  2. I want to try all of these!!!! Too many products, too little budget.
