Review: Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel, Let The Fragrance Lingers Around You

Smell something nice but it isn’t perfume? Go around with your painted nails and have the fragrance to linger around you. Introducing the new nail polishes of Revlon Parfumerie where it leaves your nails with fragrance finishing.

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel

‘Revlon Parfumerie™ offers 24 delectable scented colors in a variety of finishes from creams to glitters. The collection is divided into 3 fragrance and color families: Fruits & Florals for exotic and fruity fragrance notes in vibrant, punchy shades; Sweets & Spices for woody, spicy fragrance notes in deep, rich shades and Freshes for crisp, clean scents in light and airy shades. This unique collection includes a sophisticated range of colors from Revlon, the color authority. The new bottles are worthy of display on the chicest vanity, and the shades are a mix of classic and on-trend colors.

Revlon Parfumerie™ uses fragrance and essential oils so you are given a scent that is reminiscent of your daily perfume. Fragrance is meant to be an accessory, and with Revlon Parfumerie™ Scented Nail Enamel you can change your nail color and scent as often as your mood to express your individuality!’

I thought the bottle look very cute where it looks like the classic old school perfume bottles with rounded knob as the handle. I believe they might have adopted the concept and they are possibly related due to fragrance but these nail polishes bottles are mini sizes.

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel 2

24 of the shades is categorized in 3 fragrance category.

Fruits & Florals

  • African Tea Rose, Apricot Nectar, China Flower, Ginger Melon, Lime Basil, Orange Blossom, Pink Pineapple, Wild Violets

Sweets & Spices

  • Autumn Spice, Balsam Fir, Bordeaux, Chocolate Truffle, Espresso, Italian Leather, Moonlit Woods, Spun Sugar

Freshes

  • Beachy, Fresh Linen, Lavender Soap, Powder Puff, Sunlit Grass, Surf Spray, Tropical Rain, Wintermint

I have 3 different shades with me, one from each category which is China Flower, Autumn Spice and Surf Spray.

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Brush

The brush looks just like many other nail polishes and the fragrance doesn’t come immediately during the application. While applying the nail polish, it smells just exactly like other nail polishes. Initially, I thought that it should smell like a fragrance from the bottle itself and I took a heavy whiff then I choke. Silly me!

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel China Flower

China Flower is categorized under Fruits and Floral. It is a bright red shade with orange undertone, this is a solid color with shine finish. Although it is meant to be fruit and floral fragrance, I find it on a heavy musky scent that lasted me for at least 4 days but of course, the scent fades slowly as the day goes on. I find the scent is too masculine for me.

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Surf Spray

Surf Spray is under the Freshes category and it did have a hint of refreshing scent.  Just like how it is named, Surf Spray is a bright ocean blue shade with shimmer finish. This scent didn’t last very well on me and I will share about it why it didn’t later in this post. I had to apply two layers to achieve this finish.

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Autumn Spice

Autumn Spice falls under the category of Sweet and Spices and it has a light musky scent but I wasn’t able to catch any sweet scent from it. Autumn usually relates to the drying falling leaves where it turns orange or brown hence this brown shade finishes off with pink shimmers.

Above all…

 I liked how intense and long lasting scent when I started on China Flower but I didn’t like the strong musky scent. I was hoping to get better scent from the rest but it isn’t as strong as the first. One of the reason could be the top coat where it may suppress the scent. Therefore the scent wasn’t able to ‘linger’ around further, does that make sense?

Initially, I didn’t want to use top coat but I had to since it wears off quickly just by a day and you could see it for Autumn Spice. It could easily transfer, for example I accidentally swipe my nails over the papers and I could see traces of color on the paper. Therefore, I had no choice but to apply top coat to make it last longer and it definitely made a difference.

I liked the colors but the fragrance just didn’t hit me because I’m the type of person who would go with any scent but musky. I’m more attracted to the colors than the scent. It is very hard to determine the scent, especially when you are new to this nail polishes because the fragrance only settles when the nail polishes dries on your nail bed. Most importantly is to pick the shade that you like. It is very new in-store and it should be available this month.

Price: MYR20.90 each

Availability: Selected Sasa Revlon Nail Bar Store

PROs:

  • Beautiful shade
  • Scent that could last up to 4 days
  • Affordable

CONs:

  • Wears off within a day without top coat
  • Intensity of fragrance isn’t the same
  • Transferable

My Rating: 4/5

It will come to a one point that there will be a lot of single eye shadows laying in your drawer and there is a need to figure how to organize them. The backlash of single eye shadow is that it could get messy and some brands do offer palette that is sold separately that definitely could cost you more. Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks™ brings you the new era of single eye shadows where you can customize it anyhow you want it, anytime and anywhere.

Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks 2

‘Mix. Match. Click. With new Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks™, now you can create your own customized palette of possibilities. Each individual eye shadow easily snaps together to create your own unique combination every time. Choose from an array of 30 shades with rich color pay-off, in a variety of finishes from soft matte to satin to high sparkle. The Revlon ColorStay ShadowLinks™ shade range includes Neutrals, Pinks/Plums, Blues/Grays,  reens/Golds and Browns/Blacks. Revlon suggests starting your custom palette by picking your favorite color, adding a light shade to highlight and finishing with a deeper shade to define. Create a neutral and pink palette for day, then click-in a fun green or gold for night – whatever you choose, it’s yours – now you can change your look. In a click.’ – Revlon

Each of the eye shadows comes in a very cute rectangular tablet. They are labeled by names and be able to look for it behind of the eye shadow. I have 6 shades to be shared with you!

Review: Revlon ColorSilk Hair Color, New Improved With 3D Technology For Longer Lasting Color & Smoother Hair

It has been a couple of months that I have lived with light-colored hair. However much I liked it, I have to admit that it requires quite an effort to maintain. With light-colored hair, they seem to look and felt more damaged, dry and brittle. I decided to dark again, not only to consider my mane health but with darker hair, it contrasts and makes my complexion look brighter. I had the chance to get my hands on an upcoming improved home hair dye kit that will be available in-store by July 2014, Revlon ColorSilk Hair Color.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors with 3D Technology

Revlon has improved their existing hair coloring kit with 3D Color Technology that promises the ultimate multidimensional natural richer color.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors Shades There are 13 shades available nationwide and 1 limited shade that will be carried only by Guardian. Of all the shades, which do you think that I have chose?

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown

‘Revlon ColorSilk™ with Revlon 3D Color Technology™ for long lasting, natural looking, multi-dimensional color.

Our Revlon 3D Color Technology™, with a combination of specially blended dyes, conditioners and polymers, delivers natural looking, multi-tonal color from root to tip, not only boosting your hair color but also adding definition and dimensionality.  The result:  completely transformed, natural looking, multifaceted color and shine.

Ammonia-Free Revlon ColorSilk™ is infused with nourishing Silk Proteins that penetrate every strand so that hair looks silky, healthy, shiny and in better condition than before you colored.  It is also enriched with UV Defense to help keep color vibrant, dimensional and true.  ColorSilk delivers beautiful color, silky shiny hair and 100% gray coverage.

  • Ammonia-free
  • With UV defense
  • 100% gray coverage’

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown 2

The new improved formula comes with simple face lift on the packaging. This hair dye kit is perfect for me as I’m looking for something that is less damaging, long lasting and covers grey. What makes a bonus to this hair dye kit is that it is enriched with UV Defense to help to keep the color vibrant and true.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Shade

Since I’m going darker again, I have selected dark brown. It is the darkest brown shade available. If you ask me, why didn’t I go for black hues? I’m honestly telling you that I’m not ready for it yet. Though I’m determined to go for darker hair, there is still part of me wanting to keep the brown tones.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown 3

At the side of the box described what are the possible outcome of using this shade. I was a little worried because the outcome shade on the box seems to appear slightly lighter than I expected. This is a halal certified hair dye for those who is concern.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Ingredients

Though it is ammonia free, it does contain hydrogen peroxide. It is found in the Cream Color Developer, an agent that helps to penetrate the color onto each hair strands. Also in general, this hair dye kit contains Paraben and alcohol.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Coupon

Upon opening the hair dye kit, I was excited to see coupon on the box and after carefully reading it, it is only mean to be redeemed in US only. They do have another new hair dye kit, Revlon Luxurious ColorSilk Buttercream which is available only in US.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown In The Box

In the hair dye kit, there is a color cream developer, an ammonia-free colorant, after color conditioner, manual and a pair of disposable gloves. The disposable gloves are attached to the manual and I recommend to always read the manual before using the kit.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown How To

To prepare the dye is simply easy, just follow these steps.

  1.  Cut of the pointy tip of the cream color developer. Be careful as you cut it, there may be some cream oozes out.
  2. Pour the ammonia-free colorant into cream color developer bottle and secure the bottle tightly.
  3. Wear the disposable gloves and block the pointy tip of the cream color developer bottle. Shake the bottle gently until it is all evenly mixed.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Non Dripping

What I have used to assist me to color me hair is a hair dye brush which I have bought for the longest time ever. I did this hair coloring job on my own and it isn’t that difficult to use it. Since it is ammonia-free, I love that it smells fruity and no heavy chemical scent. The texture of the cream is not too runny that it sticks very well onto the hair without dripping. However, I did accidentally drip it directly from the bottle onto my feet and the dye stays for few days eventhough I have used soap to clean it off. Could you imagine the staying power of this hair color? For first time users, you may just leave it for 20 minutes and since I’m looking onto grey coverage, it is advised to leave it for 30 minutes. So I did.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Conditioner

 After 30 minutes, I rinsed off my hair until the water is clear. Without shampooing, I have used the After-Color Conditioner and it may looked just like other ordinary conditioner but I freaking love this! It makes my hair felt so smooth and healthy all over. I then question myself that if only Revlon would produce this conditioner as their hair care products, who knows maybe in the future they will. Pre-caution for those who is scent-sensitive because it has quite a strong scent of jasmine that lingers until the next wash.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Before & After

 Here is the comparison of my previous and current hair color. Big difference and I love it how dark it appears without looking black. It is slightly uneven on the on the crown area, I believe that is due to the duration difference of color development.

Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Colors in Dark Brown Before & After Fadeout

Just to share that I do shampoo my hair everyday. Some of you may think it’s unhealthy but going a day without shampooing my hair in this hot and humid weather just doesn’t work for me.  After a week, I have also compared how well the shade lasted since I wash my hair daily.

Above all…

Way before this, I have used the earlier version of the same Revlon ColorSilk and honestly speaking, I didn’t like it because the color fades away pretty fast and I gave up trying over the same kit. Since that I’ve used the improved formula, I’m impressed and have planned to stock in a few more once it is launched in the stores. It left my hair soft, smooth and less damaged. Not to mention the shade lasted longer than before. The grey coverage is not as perfect but it could cover most of it. I would say give it a try if you’re always coloring your hair.

Retail Price: MYR24.90

Availability: July 2014, all leading pharmacies nationwide, supermarket and selected departmental stores.
