As a freelance makeup artist, my job can really take me anywhere. For the last two weeks, it took me to REVOLVE to be a Brand Ambassador for their Beauty Pop-Up Shop off of Melrose in West Hollywood. REVOLVE launched their beauty section online about a year ago, and this was the first time that the public could actually come into a store to see and touch all the glitz and glam products that REVOLVE beauty has to offer!
Through getting a job with Beauty Barrage, which is the company that collaborated with REVOLVE to bring this whole pop-up together, I and anyone else that decided to pop in were also able to experience some amazing demonstrations from influencers and makeup artists like Patrick Ta, Jen Atkin, Mary Phillips, Olivia Culpo, Chrissy Teigen, Marianna Hewitt, and more!
So, if you’re wondering how all the REVOLVE beauties stay so beautiful, let me give you some inside tips about the best selling products that sold out at the pop-up — that REVOLVE Beauty now carries online!
This product literally sold out in four days! First off, it smells amazing because it’s made of essential oils: rose geranium, spearmint, and peppermint. Second, it’s super hydrating even after you brush off the sugar because it’s made with shea butter and coconut oil that lather your lips for a hydrated smoothing finish. This is Olivia Culpo's go-to product to prep her lips and honestly, who wouldn’t want to look even slightly like Olivia!?
After I scrub my lips with the rose polish, this is my go-to lip balm to hydrate, smooth, plump, and protect my lips. Terry uses a hydroskin complex that provides lips with optimal hydration, a lipo-regenerative complex of rose flower essential wax, pastel oil, and shea butter to soften, smooth, and heal the skin. It also has Vitamin E which is an antioxidant and SPF 15 to help protect lips from sun damage and help fight against aging.
This is another lip product that sold out so quick I could barely get my hands on one for myself before they were all gone! Free of parabens, sulfates, artificial dyes, and synthetic fragrances, these lip masks are 100% natural and made with collagen to plump lips.
For perfect lips for a night out, after exfoliating lips, apply one of these masks for 15-20 min while getting ready. After you take it off, your lips will be so hydrated, smooth, plump and ready for a long lasting lipstick for drinks while having a night out on the town!
Brazilians know bums are the best asset to a bikini body, and Sol de Janeiro has made the perfect cream to help your bum become more tight and taught. Made with caffeine-rich guarana to help stimulate circulation to lift and tighten the skin, capuacu butter, açaí, and coconut oil to deeply nourish and soften skin, mica to give a sun-kissed glow, and pastachil almond to give a wonderful fragrance. Apply this rich and fast-absorbing emulsion to anywhere on the body for smoother, tighter skin.
My favorite way to use this, especially in the winter, is to apply to feet, concentrating on heels, apply socks, and then wear overnight to soften your skin! You can also use on dry cuticles to soothe nails or even use as an after-sun application to relieve skin from sun burns!
If you’re a girl on the go with a job that has you jetting across the world, or if you’re like me and want to test out some best sellers from a cult brand, then this set is for you! Aesop features their classic shampoo, classic conditioner, geranium leaf body cleanser, and rind concentrate body balm in this set. Each is filled with amazing essential oils to help heal and give life to your hair and skin.
This product is a staple in many makeup artist kits and it’s also one of the best selling products that sold at the pop-up! It is a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, paraben-free, and non-comedogenic micellar water that removes dirt, oil, and even waterproof makeup and cleanses skin without stripping it of its natural oils. With the additive ingredient of cucumber extract, this micellar water is the perfect product to soothe skin as well!
For those days when you don’t have time to wash your hair, this dry shampoo will be your go-to product. It’s made with celery seed extract to reduce oil, bamboo and rice silks to help smooth and soften hair, and myrrh extract to fortify and protect the hair. It refreshes your hair and scalp without leaving it greasy, weighted down, or textured. Just spray 6 to 8 inches from root and tousle with fingers!
This 1” to 0.9” tapered curling wand has an oval shape to the barrel that gives hair the perfect beach wave look. Coated with advanced ceramic, this wand will leave your hair looking shiny and not damaged. It also has an automatic shut off feature that is perfect for anyone that forgets to turn off their iron.
for beach waves, take 1” sections of hair and twist hair around barrel and for a glam look, take 1” sections of hair and wrap hair flat around barrel!
This set is the perfect gift to give or even to pamper yourself with. It features some of the best products from Revolve. It also comes with an exclusive reusable gift box!! All these products retail together at a $177.00 value and you can get it for only $100 online!
