Relvon ColorBurst™ Balm Stain: Lightweight lipstain and moisturizing balm all in one!
Revlon Parfumerie™: Vibrant shades that have a light scent when they dry
Revlon Colorstay ShadowLinks™: Choose from 30 shades and create your own palette with interlocking eye shadows
"I love the Revlon Colorstay Shadow Links Eyeshadow! "Osyter" is my new favorite color to use for highlighting for my brow bone and inner eyelid, and definitely helps make my eyes pop!"
-Cates, H-E-B Social Media Editor
"The Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator is awesome because it is easy to use and makes my skin look so fresh. I use it all over my face and love the glow it gives me. All I did was add some blush and I'm ready to go!"
-Katie, heb.com Associate Online Editor
"Love the shimmer from the Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator. I use it as a highlighter around my cheekbones and corners of my eyes to keep my face looking fresh!"
-Nicole, heb.com Online Editor
"I am a fan of Revlon and the Beauty Pick items didn't disappoint!
ColorStay ShadowLinks: clever idea (you can slide the individual pieces together to form your own customized palette!) As with most Revlon shadows I have used, the color is buildable and great!
Color Burst Balm Stains: cool concept! They provide moisturizing color and I really like the tube they come in - crayon style! The matte stick does what it is intended to do and that is provide a matte finish and, unlike most matte lip products I have tried, didn't seem to be drying. The Lacquer stick provides a very shiny and glossy finish.
PhotoReady Skinlights: I was actually skeptical about this one and ended up loving it! I tried the Bare Light shade and just dotted it on my cheekbones over my foundation and it gives a nice, subtle glow (not glittery!)
Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel: These are super cool - and great colors, too! The scents are actually rather sophisticated for nail polishes - not your typical grape or apple, but more like a perfume! Apply and let dry and enjoy the aroma!
-Tracy, H-E-B Beauty Buyer
"I loved the illuminator, it brightened up my eyes. I applied it with a sponge applicator under my eyes and over my cheekbones for a highlighting effect. The eye shadows were long lasting and I love how you can mix and match sets with colors you want. I wasn't a fan of the scented polish but I think the idea is great! I am a lip stick addict; I can't resist trying new colors and trends. I really liked the lacquer balm, it was subtle and moisturizing."

"Revlon ColorStay Shadowlinks: Totally cool! The colors are long lasting, buildable and best of all, travel easy!
Colorburst Balms: the lacquer feels great on my lips, has just the right amount shine and the colors are great. The matte balm is great as well, doesn't leave a cakey feel on my lips or make my lips look dry. Plus, the balms are retractable; so no need for a sharpener. ColorStay Skinlights: Skin looking dull? Add a little skinlights to your routine. I have used this product alone with a little powder over it, and I've added it over my foundation in key spots to give my face a brighter look. It has a little shimmer to it, but it is not overpowering at all. Nail Parfumerie: Nail polish that doesn't smell like nail polish? It's a little wild, honestly. The scent is stronger on some polishes. The Autumn Spice polish I could smell when I went to sleep, however, the China Flower was lighter and not as noticeable unless my hands were close to my face, but the color is fabulous and I received compliments daily on it."
