Revlon “Just Add Sparkle” Collection
Today I have two lacquers from Revlon’s Limited Edition “Just Add Sparkle”.
A collection that appears to bring us many more Deborah Lippmann dupes and plenty of appeal.
“Midnight Sparkle” & “Brilliant Bordeaux”
See swatches and more after the jump!!
A supposed Deborah Lippmann’s “Lady Sings the Blues” dupe.
A seriously opaque deep blue base filled with tons of small and large silver hex.
Come on now. That is just GORGEOUS, right?!
And seriously opaque. Here is just ONE regular coat of “MS”
Two Coats “Midnight Sparkle”, NO top-coat
..And in full sun:
Next up is “Brilliant Bordeaux”
Now if you can successfully explain to me where they saw “Bordeaux” in this, I’ll send you prize.
Never the less, it is another stunner.
A heavy storm of fuchsia icicle glitter and larger holographic icicles amongst a flurry of small round reddish plum and small matte black glitter.
Now I initially thought all of this was in a clear base so naturally I layered this over white to truly show this polish’s properties.
Little did I know…
One Coat “BB” over basic white polish:
Shut the front door. So what I initially thought was simply a layering polish.. turns out to be something to be worn all on it’s very own.
Two Coats “BB” over basic white polish (no topcoat):
Three Coat “BB” over basic white polish (w/topcoat):
Sunlight makes this polish look even more complex:
I immediately marked both of these polishes in the must own category even before finding out that “Midnight Sparkle” is an apparent Deborah Lippmann dupe.
**Manicurity has a phenominally rad post featuring this comparison along with the other dupe from this collection (a gold glitter that may be spot on to Lippmann’s “Boom Boom Pow”). Check out her post HERE! **
Verdict? Yes. Need. You must have.
I purchased mine at Ulta a few weeks ago on a BOGO sale. YES – those Ulta sales on all Revlon are not only practically bi-monthly but usually include the brand new Limited Edition collections too! Score.
