When I’m in my local Boots or Superdrug I find that there’s two brands in particular, both on the higher end of drugstore which always produce products that I like. The brands in question are of course L’oreal and Revlon. Since I’m always flicking between the two I thought it would be fun to put them both to the test against each other.
In all honesty I’ve not tried any mascaras by Revlon although I do have the Revlon Lash Potion waiting to be used, but I absolutely adore L’oreal mascaras and their Telescopic mascara is one of my all time favourite mascaras. This can’t really be a full comparison seeing as I haven’t tried much by Revlon in terms of mascaras but simply because the Telescopic mascara blew me away I can say that L’oreal are favoured by me in the mascara department.
I have tried the Revlon Colourstay Foundation and the L’oreal True Match Foundation so now I can really compare the two brands. I did like the Revlon Colourstay as it lasted all day long but it was heavy on the skin and the shade range wasn’t as wide as I would have liked it to be. The L’oreal True Match Foundation has a lighter coverage but evened out my skin tone and colour and just made me look a lot nicer. If I could only ever use one of the two I’d go for the True Match.
When it comes to lip products I’ve tried a few from each brand. I did try the L’oreal Colour Riche Lipsticks and although the colour range is great I do find that they can be quite drying on my lips even the ones that are not matte which is a shame. I also tried the Glam Shine Caresse Stain Splash but found that it faded patchily so I didn’t get much use out of that. I do have a Revlon lip gloss which I don’t particularly love or hate. The Lip Butters are stunning I have the shade Wild Watermelon which I’ve nearly used up, and the Colourburst Matte Balms are some of my all time favourite lip products.
I’ve not tried a massive amount from either brand but none of theL’oreal polishes stood out to me massively. I do really want to try the Revlon Parfumerie range as they look absolutely stunning and I’m already a fan of their Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Enamels which last for ages without chipping on my nails.
In terms of a brand as a whole L’oreal do have a lot more products including their haircare and skincare, but I’m not a huge fan of either products. Revlon of course own Charlie and make the perfumes and body sprays which I adore so it looks like Revlon has just pipped L’oreal to the post.
I hope that you enjoyed this post and if you did please hit the like button, let me know in the comments if you prefer L’oreal or Revlon and why.
