A couple of weeks ago I headed over to my local Boots store to do a mini haul, as for months I have been eyeing up the ‘Revlon Parfumerie’ polishes but never got round to actually buying some and was in desperate need for some new concealer.
Revlon Parfumerie Polish – Autumn Spice (RRP £6.49)
This nail polish is ‘Autumn Spice’, the shade is quite a shimmery copper colour it is gorgeous on and smells even better too. The scent is quite sweet but not sickly, it smells of cinnamon which is one of my favourite scents. In terms of longevity of the scent, it lasts a good couple of days which also survives through washing my hands a numerous amount of times due to my job which I am really impressed with as I thought prior to buying them the lasting power wouldn’t be that great. With regards to longevity of staying power without chipping it does last about a day or so without a top coat, but don’t let this put you off purchasing it. As I mentioned above, due to my day job I have to constantly wash my hands so naturally that would chip away at the nail polish.. I seriously need to invest in a good top coat!
Revlon Parfumerie Polish – Wild Violets (RRP £6.49)
This nail polish is ‘Wild Violets’, the shade is a deep purple which I absolutely adore! The scent of this nail polish is quite perfumey but is not overpowering, it has quite a fresh smell to it. Again this meets the same criteria as ‘Autumn Spice’ in terms of longevity of scent and lasting power which I am really impressed with.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer – Fair (RRP £3.99)
“Conceals flaws, imperfections and blemishes for up to 16 hours. Water-resistent and transfer proof. Use with Lasting Perfection Foundation and Powder for the ultimate in long-lasting wear.”
I was in desperate need for some new concealer to cover up those pesky under eye circles and nothing seems to be touching them lately. I have had a couple of bad weeks with Scarlett as she has had 4 teeth coming through at the same time so her sleep has been all over the place, as well as 10 hour shifts at work so my eyes were definitely feeling the lack of sleep. I have seen this ‘Lasting Perfection Concealer’ featured quite a lot in Zoella’s Youtube videos, I have used many concealers but they have never provided the coverage I have needed to brighten up my dark circles. So after watching one of her videos I headed to Boots whilst picking up the Revlon nail polishes and grabbed one in the shade Fair. I got home and tested it out, I can definitely say I was impressed! it instantly brightened up my eye area making me look more awake and no more dark circles. The texture is quite thick and creamy but does not feel heavy under your eyes which I find great. As for longevity it literally lasts all day without any touch ups needed to the point of me taking my makeup off at night, I have also found that I have not needed any primer or having to set it. I have been using this non stop for the past couple of weeks and it has definitely creeped into my favourites, I shall definitely need to buy a couple of back ups.
Overall, I am extremely happy with my Boots purchases, I definitely need to pick up another couple of scents from the’ Revlon Parfumerie’ range – the lasting power and the scent definitely draws me in. The ‘Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer’ is definitely a win for me, I am really impressed with the coverage of this product, it definitely brightens my dark circles literally making them non existent! this product has been my favourite ever since purchasing it.
Have you used any of these products before? What did you think?
