OK ladies, time to stop using Revlon products

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/election-2012/mitt-romney-hits-hamptons-adds-3-million-campaign-war-chest-article-1.1110300

Fresh off his summer vacation, Mitt Romney hit the Hamptons this weekend, digging for donations in the exclusive sands of the South Fork.

The presumptive GOP nominee left his lakeside New Hampshire manse, where he had spent the July 4th week, to troll the beachfront enclaves of the absurdly rich.

One of the first stops was a cash soirée at Revlon chairman Ronald Perelman’s 40-room castle, “The Creeks.” A $25,000 check to Romney’s bid to oust President Obama gained one entry to a VIP photo-op, with a lunch afterward for $5,000 a head, or a discount of $7,500 per couple.

I am a BIG consumer of Revlon products and have been for DECADES.

NO MORE! I'M DONE with Revlon

2. Thank you for this information.

I will be passing it on to let others know to boycott Revlon. I will be calling the company to express my displeasure.

3. Don't use Revlon

now that I try to go organic whenever possible - too much crap in their products plus while their is a carefully worded statement on their site about being cruelty free, I'm far from convinced, particularly since they refuse to sign onto the Leaping Bunny list as being certified cruelty free. This is just another reason not to use their products, and they make ALOT! In the same vein I found it interesting that one person commenting on this weekend's Hampton events refused to be identified because "it would hurt business" . . . if he knows that is how consumers feel wouldn't it be prudent financially to go the other way? Just sayin'.

9. Has anyone started a boycott Revlon facebook page?

When I heard about Ron being at the Hampton with Mitt I said that is it with me and Revlon products.

11. I've never used Revlon products....

 

It's overpriced "CoverGirl" or "Mabeline". I barely wear makeup at all... FL is hot and make-up runs easily here. I normally try to find a tinted face lotion for winter months and just regular for summer... That's if I bother.

20. I LOVE Estee Lauder products, the their SO spendy!

but I always buy EL when they have their bonus thingy a few times a year. I score several hundred dollars worth of makeup for around $50-60. Then it lasts a year or more. I'm still working my way through the free stuff I got at Christmastime last year.

Their eye shadows lasts and lasts in the case and on my face! I am SO over buying Revlon at Walgreen's. Neither of those companies have my best interest at heart.

Congrats on the 20K posts, wow, that's a bunch.
