Revlon Nail Enamel: Splash 507 review
Revlon Glitzy Nights Nail Enamel comes in classic Revlon Nail enamel glass bottle with black cap and gold detailing. The shade name is stickered on top.
The shade 507 Splash is a beautiful black- green glitter nailpolish with golden, green glitter suspended in sheer black base. The nailpolish is loaded with glitter and the brush picks up enough for uniform application. The glitter is medium sized and not too chunky. It looks holographic in bottle, but not too much on the nails. The consistency is thick but it helps in applying the glitter uniformly on the nails. One coat is slightly sheer and 2 thick coats give full opacity. The brush is not great and is rather thin. I hate thin brush in nailpolish as it leads to streaking and uneven application. But Splash being a glitter nailpolish, the streaks are not much visible.
These nailpolish stay put for 3 days with minimal tip wear, which is quite impressive as most nailpolish start to wear off by 3-4th day.
I have reviewed other Glitter nailpolish HERE.
Glitter nail polish are quite hard to remove, especially if you layer this polish a lot. You can remove such glitter polishes easily using the method I use HERE
Overall, Revlon Glitzy night Nail Enamel in shade 507 Splash is a beautiful golden-green glitter in black base. The glitter are medium sized and does not tug or pull. The stay of this nailpolish is impressive and stays on for 3-4 days with minimal tip wear. However, the brush is too thin for my liking. Also, the price is on the higher side. Other than that, this is a gorgeous party color, especially if you like dark colors.

Lakme recently introduced the colored variant of its classic Eyeconic mascara in blue color. Colored eyeliners are relatively new in drugstore market in India and I am so glad Lakme introduced one. It is currently available in only blue shade (apart from the classic black one) which I am reviewing here.
Price: Rs 350 (INR) for 9 ml
Lakme Eyeconic curling mascara Royal blue Review
This mascara comes in similar packaging to its black variant. It comes in black tube packaging with shade name sticked on bottom. The details are mentioned on the cardboard packaging it comes in. The wand is curved which is meant for curling effect. The bristles of the wand are short and coats the eyelashes richly. However, I do get some smudges here and there on my skin while applying.
The color is bright cobalt blue, and not royal blue (dark blue), is highly pigmented and quite visible from the first coat itself. Being such vibrant blue, it screams drama and adds beautiful color to your overall makeup look.
The formula is slightly wet, which takes sometime to dry, which is why I get smudges on my brow bone sometimes. It does not clump but if you apply more than 3 layers then it might. The end of the wand picks up more product which proves a hassle sometimes, so do remove that excess bit before applying. The mascara definitely gives a lift to the eyelashes but it does not have a significant curling effect. The formula does not feel heavy on the eyelids.
The mascara is not waterproof but does not smudge after drying either. It can be easily removed with a makeup remover. It can also be washed with cleanser directly with a little massage. It did not smudge after 5-6 hours of wear.
I love to pair this mascara with a black liner to add a subtle hint of color on the eyes. This way makes it suitable for office wear as well.
However, I do have some issues with the packaging as somehow one day the stopper inside the tube (meant to wipeout the excess product on the wand ) stopped working (?) or it broke or shifted and I ended up with thick, gloopy layer of product on the brush. And after one or two days it started to work fine again
Overall, this is a beautiful blue mascara which is affordable and doesnot break bank! The consistency is slightly wet and 2 coats are sufficient to provide full color and curling effect. The curling effect is not that prominent but it does give a lift to the eyelashes. The vibrant blue color adds drama to the overall makeup look. Colored eyeliners are relatively new in the market (atleast in the drugstore segment) and this one is definitely worth trying. If you find the color too bold, you can always tone it down by wearing it with a black eyeliner. However, I do have some issues with the packaging as somehow the stopper inside the tube (meant to wipeout the product on the wand ) broke/shifted one day and I ended up with thick layer of product on the brush.
L’Oreal Paris launched this new range of nail polish last year – Color Riche L’Huile nail polish. Although this range has been available outside India for some time, it was launched in India recently. There is a wide variety of shades to choose from. Here I am reviewing a gorgeous purple shade ~ Violet Vendome 332.
Price: Rs 399
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche L’Huile nail polish Violet Vendome review
The packaging is very attractive and one of its kind. It comes in a super pretty cut-glass cuboidal bottle with shade name sticked on top. The bottle feels luxurious in hand. I got attracted to the packaging only when I spotted it from far and decided to purchase atleast one shade 😛
Violet Vendome 332 is a beautiful violet color with a perfect mix of purple and pink. This is such a vibrant shade which will work in spring as well as Fall in my opinion. (Check out another great purple nailpolish HERE). Even though Violet Vendome is a bright shade, it should still work across skin tones. The finish is highly glossy. The texture is smooth and creamy and the nailpolish is pigmented, although it takes 2-3 coats for full color intensity (3 for me as with 2 coats my nail tips were visible). These nail polish are fast drying, but I recommend applying thin coats. I am highly impressed with the brush. There are ridges on the stem holding the brush which makes it drip resistant. It is U-shape and perfectly wide to cover the nails in a single stroke without going outside the edges. I love nailpolish with a good brush. The USP of this range of nailpolish is that they have an oil-infused formulation which delivers deep, vibrant color and intense shine.
The glossiness of this nailpolish stays for 2-3 days. However, I could start to see tip wear next day onwards, which is a bummer. The chipping started after 4-5 days but you can always prolong the wear time by using a top coat.
Overall, I think these polishes are worth to have a look at. The packaging is really attractive, there is a large spectrum of shades to choose from, the pigmentation is good and the finish is highly glossy. The brush is amazing and makes the nailpolish application a dream, especially around cuticles. The texture, formula and finish is top notch.
