Ladies and gentlemen, today’s nail of the day is Revlon’s new shade…
Nail Enamel - Expressionists in lovely black/purple called Facets of Fuchsia
I should have called it Nail of the Weekend
because I’ve been wearing this polish for the past 3 days ha ha..
This is a super super gorgeous shade,
great dupe for Deborah Lippmann’s Bad Romance
Facets of Fuchsia 3 coats with 2 top coats
Brush: a little bit long and narrow, but the application is quite easy and smooth
Nail Polish: This is a black based jelly like polish with a combination
of mini glitter and larger hexagonal glitter, both in a very beautiful metallic purple
Opacity: 2 coats will give you an opaque gorgeous finish, but I just went 3
Price: You can’t beat a great glitter nail polish for under $5 ^-^
Staying Power: I have been wearing this polish for 3.5 days with no chips,
so I would say the staying power is pretty good (with 2 top coats)…
Overall: I personally think this nail polish looks cuter on shorter nails.
(long nails tend to look tacky and have a gothic feeling)
This is a very very gorgeous nail polish with a lot cheaper in price
compared to DL Bad Romance, I think Revlon will suffice^^
two thumps up!!!
Today’s post goes to Revlon Matte Lipstick - Pink Pout
This is a creamy baby-pink/nude pink and a lilac hint
to the lipstick with a lovely matte finish.
The color is true to what the product picture shows and stays true on the lips.
This is my go to drugstore lipstick…it instantly adds freshness and brightens
the face a bit, very lovely and natural… However, the formula for this lipstick
is a little drier so I recommend using a lip balm underneath. Apply the lip balm
for at least 5 minutes, once your lip absorbed the moisture, you can apply
the lipstick. And you will have your lovely “matte” finish lips. Another way is
to use lip scrub, it will not only eliminates dry, flaky skin and leaves the lips
soft and moisturized.
Here you can find how to make your own lip scrub
I tried this hand scrub recipe to my lips, it works very very good :)
gorgeous matte pink
When I saw this Revlon Pink Pout in the store, I thought it’s a bit similar to
Rimmel’s Airy Fairy, see picture above, the color stickers are so similar right?
The lipstick is plastic wrapped, it is hard to tell what the color look like..
I picked it up and thought I’d give it a try since the color is so pretty.. Comparisons of these 2 lovelies (under natural sunlight)
Swatches of the two under natural sunlight
They are actually quite different,
both colors are so pretty and they give a nature nude-pink shade.
very happy with the new shade I got.
