Revlon Reports Fourth Quarter Loss

I sure hope that Linda Wells can turnaround Revlon because they just reported a 4th quarter loss. I don't know about you but makeup wise they've been very stale. There's hardly any new products. I find that their makeup brushes are overpriced compared to other drugstore makeup brush lines. I've bought some nice Revlon sheer lipsticks and their regular hair color at Dollarama but I pretty much bypass their makeup displays when I'm in the drugstore or grocery store.

Their cream blush can be found in only two colors (both of which I do not like) no matter where I look.  I have noticed that stock is not being robustly replenished.  One of their lipsticks is my favorite base coat.  So many times I have had to move on in life -- getting old and tired... 

 

I swore by Helena Rubinstein face cream for what seemed forever.  Poof, and my favorite cream company vanished.

I don't remember the last time I bought a Revlon product. Maybe colorstay foundation several years ago. They need a legitimate overhaul to stay relevant, imo.

My favorite lipstick is Revlon......Wine with Everything....there is the Matte which I use in winter and the Pearl the rest of the time.

That's the only Revlon product I use. I have more Maybelline and Cover Girl products.

Revlon hired Gwen Stefani to be their new spokesperson.

QVC's make-up sales are down.  Maybe this is industry wide?  But billions and billions are spent each year.

NativeJax, that is my favorite color lipstick, too.  I'd be lost without it.  I stick to the Pearl version.

Re: Revlon Reports Fourth Quarter Loss

Lipstick is my thing and I will buy the same color from a different line over and over, but I have stopped buy eyeshadows, foundations, blushes and kits just for the sake of buying. I got to the point where I was buying these kits from QVC and would use maybe one product and shove the rest in a drawer and eventually throw it away. One day I cleaned out a closet full of old makeup and I was sick with how much money I had wasted and never used. Now I know I like a cream eyeshadow from Tom Ford, foundation from La Mer and the blush I am using is a Charlotte Tillsbury, my mascara never changes it is extreme black from Giorgio Armani. Those items cost more, but in the long run it is cheaper, I know they work, I am not throwing away anything and I don't have clutter.
