Revlon Beauty Products Review & Giveaway!!

When it comes to beauty, for me, frugality is a must.  Why would I spend tons of money on nails when I don't really want to wear them ALL the time and I could do them at home cheaper??  Makes no sense to me. I mean, of course, I have gone to the salon and paid big bucks to get nice fake nails put on, and they are great but they have to be maintained and that gets expensive. For a frugal gal like myself, there are much better ways to spend my money (like shoes hehe!)  So I turn to companies like Revlon for my beauty-at-home needs!  They offer great false eye lashes and artificial nails, among other products!
 
REVLON® Fantasy Lengths® Maximum Wear self adhesive eyelashes are a revolutionary way to go from Plain Jane to Naturally Fantastic instantly. Without messy glue to fumble with- you can have perfect lashes that stay where you want them to- even in water.  And they are available in four different styles. I was able to try several different types of lashes, both self adhesive and ones requiring glue. I prefer the self adhesive for a beginner like me, as it is less complicated!!

I am not a big time user of false eyelashes, but I was willing to try this out. Luckily Revlon has great tips and even a video to help people like me with little to no experience with false eye lashes!  The tips and video make it a breeze to put on false eyelashes! Revlon has a great video featuring Gucci Westman, the Global Artistic Director for Revlon.  In this video, Gucci shows step-by-step how to apply false eyelashes and even gives a few tips on how to make them look even more real than they already do!  There are two separate videos, one for the glue-on lashes and the other for the self-adhesive lashes.  Just click on this link, www.Revlonlashvideos.com and it will take you straight to the videos! 

Now nails I have no problem putting on. I got to try out the beautiful red Color Allure Glue On Nails!   These were much easier and more my cup of tea.  I have become a pro at gluing my own nails, so I can avoid the extra glue on my fingers, and on the fake nails themselves! It takes a bit of practice, but I think if you do them right, they look just as nice as salon nails. Now of course, they don't last as long as salon nails. I recommend taking the bottle of glue and sticking it in your purse. Especially if you are like me and use nails for special occasions. I wore my nails to a Brad Paisley concert and one of them came off during the night, and I was bummed I didn't bring the nail glue. Now I know better!!
Revlon offers many great beauty products, you can check out their site to browse them! And I am excited to announce that Revlon would like to offer one of you some awesome false eyelashes and fake nails! Read on to find out how to win!!
