Revlon Parfumerie – Bordeaux

If you happen to live near a Poundworld, I seriously recommend you get yourself to it asap.  Recently, US bottles of the Revlon Parfumerie have been cropping up for the princely sum of £1!  Compared to the £6.49 in other places in the high street, this is an excellent deal.  So I have a couple to show you in the next posts that I have been fortunate to pick up.  This one is Bordeaux.

As the name suggests, this on is a wine red, not a deep one, but a lovely shade of what I would call raspberry red.  It has hints of pink but it certainly isn’t pink.  Formula was good, this is two coats (although I did manage to have a massive smudge accident on several nails, so if you see shadows that is user error and not formula related!).  What you see here is two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 (its that time of the year again to go on the assault to protect my nails!) and I did use a top coat here of G&G HK Girl.  Top coat only slightly diminishes that scent but increases wear time.

Brush is small and flat ended, not tapered, so a bit of care is needed around the cuticle area.  If you aren’t familiar with these, the gimmick is in tow ways.  Firstly, these are scented polishes and the name gives you a hint of the scent within.  I have a couple of the other ones, seen before Autumn Spice and Wintermint, and the scent on this one is much more subtle.  Its very gentle on the nose and isn’t overpowering at all.  You go have to sniff your fingers quite closely to get it.  The second thing, is the perfume styled bottle.  I do adore them, so cute and dinky!

The ball does have the brush attached so you need a firm grip so it doesn’t go shooting out of your hand!

What do you think?  I’d say its certainly worth the £1 I paid.  Have you picked any up recently?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. I found a couple of these last week, I picked up ‘Surf Spray’ (blue) and ‘Fresh Linen’ (cream) and I agree the bottles are adorable! I didn’t notice a red, you have just given me an excuse to go back for another rummage 😉 I also found several of the Sally Hansen Triple Shine range, I’m building up quite a collection of those.


    • It’s such a good deal, plus we get a range from the US. My local store also had last autumns metallic Insta Dri shades in. Was thrilled to see them! Thanks for your comment

  5. Wow, that is a deal! I picked up some of these when they first came out but got distracted and never actually tried them (that happens more than I’d like with me).
