Choose Your Own Style Adventure with the Revlon + ELLE Personal Style Experience

Were you a fan of Choose Your Own Adventure books as a child? Last winter, I went on a scavenger hunt in my parents’ basement and dug up my beloved Sweet Valley High books and some of my fave CYOA books. One was an off brand version about an aspiring model who, at one point, had to choose between a job in Europe and staying with her boyfriend. What’s a girl to do?

If you were the kind of CYOA reader I was, you re-read the book until you discovered every possible option so you could create your perfect story. Well, Revlon and ELLE have teamed up to create a grown-up fashion and beauty version of CYOA with The Personal Style Experience.

The Personal Style Experience on Revlon’s Facebook page is an interactive video that asks you to make beauty, fashion and lifestyle choices to help select your “Style Personality.” I’m not gonna lie, my overly obsessive self has played this A LOT to see all the different results (though I can’t seem to get Daring). Which is great because I don’t feel like my style falls into one specific category. I consider myself a chameleon and this type of game plays right into that.

For us nail girls, it includes options like “a party nail” or “matching lips & tips” and in the end you get fashion and product recommendations based on your style, like the new Revlon® Brilliant Strength™ Nail Enamel in Mesmerize. It’s no secret that I’m all about bold blues at the moment and this vibrant cyan creme feeds that frenzy. Better yet, the Brilliant Strength formula has base & top coat built in so it dries to a high gloss shine.

Now head on over to The Personal Style Experience for a fun little break in your day and tell me what your current “Style Personality” is. If anyone gets Daring, you NEED to tell me what products were recommended. It’s going to drive me nuts not to know!

      Look at you, Miss Daring! Thanks so much for posting your results. Have you tried the ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick? I got a tube at CVS when they launched and I love the feel and the wear.

    Very fun and cute, and I actually found a lip color I really want to try now!
    I tried it 3 times and ended up getting “Edgy” every time… I wouldn’t have guessed myself as Edgy but maybe Revlon knowns something that I have never thought of… ^_^

    I love this new nail polish! That color is gorgeous!!

  4. Medusa says:

    I got Classic; but it’s weird, because I never got to make a choice – the video just played & chose Classic for me.

    The products:

    Revlon: Nearly Naked Makeup
    Revlon: ColorBurst Lip Butter in Cotton Candy
    Revlon: ColorStay Eyeliner
    Revlon: Nearly Naked Pressed Powder
    Revlon: Super Lustrous Lipstick in Stormy Pink

    P.S. Oh wait – I played the video again – I guess I had to click on the choices in the video as it played? Ah well.

      I’m glad you got it to work. You have to make your decisions fast or it moves right on

    I got edgy! It worked pretty well because I like to stay on top of trends but not necessarily follow them ^_^

    I really love that color, it’s gorgeous

    Very cute. I got one where the model was painting her nails with an orange-leaning red polish (the match your tips and lips option). OMG she was glooping on about 5 coats of polish at once. LOL! Clearly she did not actually do her own nails for that part. :) I thought the interactive idea was really interesting though and I played through a couple of times. Classic or edgy were the results I got.

    I got Daring on the first try. Since someone else already posted the products for Daring, I don’t need to. I’m going back to try different choices.
