R+S: Revlon Chroma Chameleon Nail Enamel – Topaz

PhotoGrid_1367531571703Today I have another polish I received from Revlon Selects to share. It’s the Chroma Chameleon Nail Enamel in the shade Topaz.

Topaz is a gorgeous multi-chrome that’s a mix of green, blue, and gold depending on how the light hits it. I think the green is the most dominant shade here, the blue is not nearly as strong as green but it comes through sometimes (eg on my thumb in the above picture). Application is beautiful. I was a little worried because it looked pretty watery, but one coat is almost opaque, and two coats is enough for complete opaqueness. It wasn’t streaky at all. It’s probably one of the most easily applied polish I have in my stash.

I have always been intrigued by multi-chrome (or duochrome) polishes, but never picked one up because I don’t think I will wear it much. But this polish is so pretty it makes me want to pick up a couple more shades in the range (there are 8 in total).  Also, I love the packaging!

These should be available in store now (or in the very near future). I believe I’ve seen it around for $9.99, but one catch is that this polish is only 8.6ml (versus 15ml for most full size polishes).

Have you tried any Chroma Chameleon Nail Enamel by Revlon? What is your favourite multi- or duo-chrome polish?

Disclaimer: I was sent this item by the manufacturer, but all opinions are my own honest opinions. (After all I started this blog to share my experiences with products with fellow beauty-lovers)

 

R+S: Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel Nude Collection – Natural Pink

Image (9)This nail polish is another item I got from the Revlon Selects package. I have tried a few Revlon polishes before and I loved them all so I’m beyond excited to try this. This is a shade from their new “Nude Collection”.

Natural Pink is a pale light pink with a yellow undertone. It’s very natural (very aptly named indeed), and is perfect for everyday wear. The formula was great, not streaky and it’s opaque in two coats (see above image). I also find that it dried faster than most polishes. Overall I think it’s a great polish that I will use a lot this spring/summer!

Revlon Selects: Revlon Nail Art 3D Jewel Appliques Wild Flowers – 06 Bow-quet

Recently I received another package from Revlon Selects, which came as a surprise because there was no email whatsoever warning about it’s arrival – nevertheless I am glad I received the package because it came with some awesome nail-related items that I can’t wait to share with you!

One of the item I got is their new Nail Art 3D Jewel Appliques Wild Flowers in the pattern 06 Bow-quet. I swear someone over at the Revlon side can read minds – I am a huge sucker for bows! On the info sheet that came with the package it stated this will be hitting stores in May, which is approaching quickly.  Continue reading

Review: Revlon Colorstay Base Coat

Image (5)Today I have a quick review on my holy grail base coat – Revlon Colorstay Base Coat. I have tried a number of base coats and non compared. This one is super easy to applied because of it’s wide applicator, and it dries super fast. I would apply it on my left hand, and then right, and the it’s already dry on my left (and no… I’m not THAT slow that applying nail polishes haha). It turns my ridge-y nail into a smooth canvas for nail colours, and I find that my polishes last longer with this base coat. I also love how it’s a drugstore polish so it’s not too pricey the begin with ($8.99 at Walmart), and there are always sales that make it even cheaper! I highly recommend this if you are on the market for a new base coat!

 

R+S: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey

As promised before, here’s a quick review and swatch of the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in the shade Honey. I have been intrigued by the JBKBS ever since it was released, but the range of colour never really impressed me. Don’t get me wrong, there are some gorgeous shades, but there aren’t too many that would suit my skin tone and is okay for day-to-day wear. Honey is the closest thing to that.

Honey is a muted pink with a hint of mauve. It’s a perfect everyday colour. It has pretty good pigmentation, and applied very smoothly. It did not accentuate any dry patches or lines on my lips, but it left my lips super dry. Sad day. It was to the point where the skin on my lips started peeling off chunks by chunks – gross I know. The gloss was gone pretty fast, around 1-2 hours, but my lips were stained for another 2-3 hours, so the wear time is pretty good.

Bottom line: Loved the colour, super sad that it dried my lips like no tomorrow. I think I am a bigger fan of the Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balm!

Have you tried both Revlon and Covergirl’s jumbo lip balms? Which one do you prefer?
