Revlon’s Sunshine Sparkle vs Chanel’s Mimosa

Wednesday, 8 June, 2011

Ah…the joys of owning nail polish. I can do fun comparisons. It never entered my head to keep up the comparisons when I started doing them last year, but as my collection grew I noticed there were some that really were so close to others that I had to put them side by side and let them duke it out!

I am featuring Revlon’s Sunshine Sparkle in this post because I’ve already written about Chanel’s Mimosa.

Chanel Riva vs Revlon Blue Lagoon

Thursday, 19 May, 2011

I saw Blue Lagoon at my Walgreens and went, “Ohh…I can do a comparison to Riva!” and they have some shocking similarities. They’re both shockingly shitty with application. There I said it. I blasphemed the La Maison de Chanel. Revlon – eh. Like they care.

Despite the craptastic application, they’re both pretty colors.

Come and see…

Revlon – Perplex

Thursday, 7 April, 2011

I am Perplexed that I was not able to find this color sooner.

I got a call from a BFF going, “What is that color you were looking for from Revlon? Is it called Perplex?”

Me: “OMG…YES! WHERE ARE YOU?”

BFF: “I’m at Big Lots. They have three left and…”

Me: “GET THEM ALL. DO YOU HEAR ME? GET THEM ALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! ALL OF THEM! I LOVE THAT COLOR. WELL, I DON’T KNOW IF I WILL LOVE THAT COLOR, BUT I WANT THEM ALL ANYWAY!”

BFF: “Ok. Stop yelling in my ear. They’re a dollar each.”

Me: *faints*

I got the package 2 days later. Yay for NAIL MAIL!! Thank you, Karen! Thank you, thank you!!!

Revlon – Not So Blueberry

Monday, 7 February, 2011

This particular Monday started out as such…I was driving hubby to the train station. While stuck in traffic this is how the conversation went:

Me: (holding my fingertips under his nose) SMELL MY FINGERS!

Him: (shaking his head and holding his breath)

Me: Seriously, smell my fingers!

Him: (sniffs cautiously) Oh…that smells quite nice! It smells like blueberries!

OPI, Ginger & Liz and Revlon – Damone Roberts 1968, Ivy League and Minted

Thursday, 2 September, 2010

I’ve been on a mint kick. Well, I was on a mint kick, but it happened at night. No, not candy. I’m talking nail polish.

I had finally scored Revlon’s Minted. I got a cute sample size of Ginger & Liz’s Ivy League. I have OPI’s Damone Roberts 1968. I wanted to wear them all, but knew I really couldn’t. I decided to put them all together for a comparison because those 3 were my newest mint greens. I wasn’t thinking…and realized it was night time, but eh. Sometimes the flash really does make the color stand out as well as flatter it, but it also has a tendency to drown the color/make it prettier than what it is.

Not in this case of the Mints! It showcased everything accurately.

OPI’s Damone Roberts was a bit thick, but it dried quickly.

Ginger & Liz looks bad because I wasn’t wearing my glasses on those 2 fingers. OOPS. The formula dried quick as well.

Revlon’s color had some serious cuticle pull. I was annoyed. Formula was runny and took a while to dry.

Revlon – Rock and Chanel – Paradoxal

Thursday, 19 August, 2010

In my head, I honestly thought Paradoxal and Rock were alike. No, they’re not.

Revlon’s color, Rock, is part of their fall collection…I couldn’t get the glitter companion for it because it was sold out. I still love this purple, though. I’m sure the glitter would’ve rocked it.

Here is Rock on me and then a comparison with Paradoxal on my thumb.

Formula: Wonderful and fast drying. Opaque on the second coat. Pity their brush was all jacked up.
