I'm sure most of you are aware of the tons of new products in the cosmetics section of the drugstore. I've recently picked up a few of them and still looking for a few that have been sold out. And I've set up an Instagram recently (@megsmaquillage) where I upload instahauls, outfit of the days, and a few miscellaneous photos, so be sure to follow me there!! I post there very regularly!!! But anyways, I hope to post a few reviews of the new products I've been trying out recently. Here's the first one for Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polishes.
Basically, these are scented nail polishes, hence the name, which make them so unique compared to other nail polishes on the market. And according to their website's product description, each color has a separate scent. The color/scent that I got is called "Bordeaux". It's a very beautiful deep red color and (I'm terrible at describing scents, but I'm going to give it a shot) fruity scent. The scent, however, doesn't show up until the polish starts to dry, so don't smell the polish in the bottle! I applied a base coat, 2 coats of Bordeaux, and even after applying a top coat, I could still smell the scent; a major bonus!! And even after washing my hands multiple times and showering, I could still smell the scent the following day! I should also mention how nice of a consistency and pigmentation/opaqueness this nail polish has... I probably could have gotten away with just one coat of the nail polish because it was so nice! The one thing I really don't like is the applicator handle. It's a little sphere in order to add to the presentation of the product to represent a perfume bottle. It's rather small and not the easiest to use.
I do want to say that I found it crucial to use a top coat! Not because the color polish isn't good quality or not shiny enough, but because the nail polish chipped only in the one spot that I missed with top coat. The top coat (Revlon Colorstay) really held the nail polish in place and strengthened it. And, like I said before, don't think that the top coat will take away the scent of the nail polish. And if it weakens the scent, it's very slightly.
Overall, I am very pleased with the product and will definitely be purchasing more in the future. The price, at $4.99 at Target, is very affordable, especially for the quality and uniqueness of the product. I'm very interested in seeing if the other colors in this line are just as high-quality as Bordeaux. I'm also interested to seeing the different scents of each of them. I'm anticipating other companies to start making scented nail polishes to compete with this line and it will be interesting to see how they compare.
I hope this review helped you out as it is my own complete and honest opinion. I'll talk to you all soon! Stay beautiful!!
