Indian nail art blog, Kolkata: Revlon parfumerie scented nail enamel (nail polish) in Bordeaux swatches, review and price in India
Hellooo everyone! How is life just after Navratri/ Durga puja going?
Right now,I am so proud to say that I have controlled myself from buying anything till now, because I am on a shopping ban and let’s see for how long I can keep the control over myself.
I bought the Revlon parfumerie nail polish ( in Bordeaux) just before I went on my shopping ban and finally I am reviewing this.
My first reaction when I saw this color was “OOHHHHH, what a beeeeauutiful shade!”
The SA didn’t even need to say anything about the range, and especially the shade and I was all over it :P. (Nail polish freak?? I know :P )
But I have to say this, I am disappointed with the polish! Very much!
You must have seen all the colors on my instagram account (not following me yet !? hmmmmmm).
Let’s get on with the full review-
Color: - Bordeaux is a actually a wine from Bordeaux, a district in SW France.
So naturally the color, since named after a wine, is a wine color. No shimmers or glitters.
It has a beautiful purple tone to it, which no camera could capture and believe me I tried very hard to get the proper color. But basically it is a maroon color, like a red wine.
Packaging: - The packaging of these polishes is so attractive that 50% women would buy it without thinking! Cute! A rectangular box shaped bottle with a round black handle.But the handle is not very good for holding while applying the polish.
Brush: - Thick brush, which can take out a lot of polish at once!
Formula: - Beautiful, thick creamy formula, but when it comes with a thick brush proper application becomes a nightmare in case of a creamy polish.
Finish: - I do not like it, it is horrible. Period. It stays put, dries slowly (second layer) , does not spread. And to top it all off it forms a lot of bubbles!
I applied the nail color 3 times for 4 days each to test it properly (because I did not want to agree that it can be bad!) but every time, even when I applied 1 coat, bubbles were formed!
Longevity:- Heartbreaking! Chips within a day!!!!! 2 out of 3 times it chipped the very first day of application and on the second day once. And it fades off.
Coverage: - Takes two coats for full opacity.
Nail art: - I don’t think it would be good for a base.
Fragrance: - the speciality of this range! I wish I could sample the fragrance of these polishes while buying ( Revlon, Are you listening?? ) because this smells exactly like red wine!
And my room smells like wine :P after I apply this! The fragrance stays for the whole time but on day one it is really strong and is like a perfume (in my case sweet cherry wine perfume :P)
Price:- 350 INR
Quantity:- 11.4 ml
Rating:- 2 (for the packaging and shade) / 5
So all in all, thick brush+ creamy polish + bubbles = Not a good nail poilish!
I would not recommend this at this price. I was so excited about this range and I am not going to buy these anymore, expensive and bad!
I am so sad that I could not spend this durga puja properly I was down with fever this puja. :(
But, I did a bit of pandal hopping; don’t forget to see thebeautiful idols I saw :)
Did you get any color from this range? Do you like this color??
