Spotted! Revlon Vamp It Up and Tanya Burr range refresh

A quick spot for you today – updated Revlon stands. Not much to say really, most items look like repromotes to me.  Boooo how boring. Anyway, more excitingly, the Tanya Burr range has been refreshed.  The bottles have all been changed.  if you are quick, certain Superdrug stores have the older bottles for sale around £1.50
   Love the little detail on the bottle cap!  Let me know what you think in the comments.

Spotted – Revlon The Sahara Escape Collection Spring/Summer 2015

Passing my local Boots, I noted that the Revlon stand had been updated with the new Sahara Escape Collection.  Six items in total, one polish.      

I didn’t see any Limited Edition wording and the nail polish had also been inserted into the main polish displays.  As its marked up as Spring Summer 2015, I wonder if we might be a release for Summer.  Guess we will see!

Anything catch your eye?  Let me know in the comments!

Spotted! New Seventeen stands & Revlon A/W polishes

A couple of smaller spots for you today – first up, Seventeen have had some new pop up stands in Boots stores.  I hadn’t noticed how many new shades they had brought out but presumably they have now finished the transition from the old bottles to the newer ones.  Hence a big re-promote and the removal of Sinful Colors (which are in the same price point).  So here are the new Seventeen stands.IMG_6569.JPG

Then I spotted the new Revlon shades, actually integrated into the main Revlon stand,  I’d already seen these over on BeautyGeek and was wondering if we might get these shades.  And then BOOM we did.  Interesting the non glitter shade was part of the Summer 2014 Bohemian Collection.IMG_6570.JPG

The purple shade is similar to Facets of Fuchsia (Scandalous) but it is NOT the same.  According to Karen at the aforementioned BeautyGeeks, the Egdy shade is limited edition.  Makes sense, as you can see here its not numbered so not part of the core range.IMG_6571.JPG

Finally, over on the new updated L’Oreal stands, a couple of new finish effects.  One wax and one latex.IMG_6573.JPGThere you go, a few more things to look out for.  Anything catch your eye?

Revlon Parfumerie – Italian Leather

I have another of those lovely Poundworld bargains for you today – this is another of the Revlon Parfumerie range, so not only do you get a gorgeous colour and a lovely bottle, there is a fab scent to the polish once it is dry.  This one is Italian Leather, one of the ones I had my eye on for a long long time!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is a lovely shade, slightly unusual and therefore hard to describe.  Buts is a golden brown, with hints of green and black.  It really is multidimensional colour.  Formula is good, this is two medium coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 and topped with G&G HK Girl to lock in the shine.  Scent is a bit weird, but in a good way, I don’t find the scents too strong but I know some people find them overpowering.  A top coat does take the edge off but you can still smell it.

I love shades like this, hard to describe and lovely for autumn.  I;ve not been to a Poundworld in a couple of weeks so there may be new things to see.  So go go go!

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.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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!

Spotted! Revlon A/W 2014, Revlon Gel Envy & Revlon Haute Rocks collections


Bumper edition of Revlon goodies for you today.  I was casually walking through my local Boots and I thought that the stand looked different.  And I was right, it did!

First up, A/W 2014 Boho Chic Collection – two new polish shades and some new make up items.IMG_5907.JPGTwo polishes are Bohemian and Confident.  Both RRP £6.49

IMG_5908.JPGConfident is packed with red glitter the same shade as the base colour and some smaller silver bits.  I think.  Could be just my eyes, but I think its there.


THEN the newest kid to the gel nails effect family – Revlon Gel Envy polish.  Two Steps to Gel Envy – apparently.  So you have a base colour and a Diamond Top Coat.  All the shades seem to have a Vegas/gambling theme, of which I am a FAN!


With the buy on get one half price offer, even I was tempted to pick them up for long weekends away when I know I will not be able to change my polish.IMG_5911.JPGAlso new in the Revlon stand was the Haute Rocks collection, which you may have seen on Nouveau Cheap (link here).  US edition had eight shades, we have six and its Revlon’s take on the textured trend.

IMG_5912.JPGShades are Seychelles Sand, Tahitian Coast, Moroccan Oasis, Lana’i Lagoon, Mayan Riviera and Caribbean Cove. Same shades names too as the US release.  We don’t have the orangey one (Brazilian Beach) or the purple one (Balinese Bay).





IMG_5917.JPGNot sure if I am ready to put that level of glitter on my nails….. but hey, I do still have my Sally Hansen Gem Crushes which get outings occasionally.  And I can’t see these being any harder than those babies to get off!

Anyway, let me know what you think in the comments?  If you have tried out any of these, do let me know!

Goodness me. I was ambling through my local Boots and the Revlon Nail Polish stand has been completely updated with new collections and a larger collection of Parfumerie (20 shades).  I also don’t think I have ever seen collections that have come out in the US come out so quickly in the UK.

First up, the new Leather and Tweed collection.  Three textured shades, oh Downtown you sexy purple you will be mine come pay day, and a set of three bar glitter toppers.

THEN!!  MORE REVLON!!  This time the Sun Candy range which I saw in the US before Xmas.  Only six shades here, instead of the 10 available in the US.  You’ve seen Lava Flame here.



Gosh, I really don’t know where to start!  Loving the chromes.  Loving the purple texture from the Leather and Tweed collection.  Really love the Sun Candy collection.  Plus we’ve only just got in the Parfumerie collection.  What is a girl to do??  What will you be picking up?
