Passport to Revlon JetSet into Fall ColorStay Challenge - Pucker in Paris & an Instagram Giveaway!

Hello Beautiful Readers!

I decided to participate in the Passport to Revlon ColorStay challenge recently, and here's how I made out with it! My challenge was to re-create the "Pucker in Paris" look with the products below:

From left to right: Revlon ColorStay Skinny Liquid Liner in Blackout, Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara in Blackest Black, ColorStay Gel Envy in Sure Thing, Blackjack, and Diamond Top Coat, Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks in Petal and Greige and finally, the star of the look (in my opinion), Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in Parisian Passion

Luckily, I was given a little guide on how to achieve the look!
Truthfully, this look is right up my alley, and something I've been wearing a lot lately - a soft smokey eye, a cat eye (although this cat eye is doubled for dramatic effect), and a bold lip.

Here's how you can achieve this look:
First off, start with a good base to even your skin out - the Revlon ColorStay foundation is perfect for creating a flawless look that lasts. Apply Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks in Petal all over the lid (almost up to the brow) and the shade Greige in the crease for a soft smoky effect. Then, stabilize your hand and prepare to draw the first line across your lid with the Revlon ColorStay Skinny Liquid Liner in Blackout . I use my pinky finger as an anchor to create that perfect cat-eye flick.

Once you've applied that first flick, simply create another flick right above it. I found this to be the easiest way to get the double-flick effect. Then, apply two coats of the Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara in Blackest Black. I curled my lashes before for extra flirty-ness.

After the eyes are done, I applied my Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in Parisian Passion to the lips. For longer lasting power, let the first coat dry and re-apply. When I took these pictures, my mani was coincidentally Revlon's Gel Envy in Hold 'Em which matched the shade of the Parisian Passion perfectly.

And voila, here's the fresh Parisian end product! A simple cat-eye with a twist, and a sophisticated lip.

To complete the look, here are the steps for the Pucker in Paris manicure.
For the mani, start by applying the shade Blackjack on all your nails except for the ring fingers. On the ring fingers, apply the shade Sure Thing. I applied two coats on both of the shades. Finish the manicure with the Diamond Top Coat.

And voila! How modern and simple is this many! I'm in love!

The mani wore quite well, and still looked fresh after 6 days with very minimal tip wear!

What do you think of this look? I thought the cat-eye was surprisingly wearable and I wouldn't be opposed to sporting it as a daytime look. And I was just completely smitten with the mani!

And now for the fun part! Revlon has kindly offered for a reader to win a Jet Set into Fall prize package with these products. All you have to do is follow me on Instagram @annicktheblogger, and like the picture of me wearing the look! You have to be a resident of Canada and over 18 years of age to participate. Good luck! Contest will close Friday the 17th of October.
