I have no complaints about the formulation of this product. It goes on smooth and creamy and has good staying power. However, the color is a bit unflattering on my pale, cool-toned, skin. On my complexion, it shows as a vivid red with coral undertones, and it looks like I just painted my lips with a brightly colored sharpie. However, that is not the lipstick's fault; it just wasn't the right shade of red for my skin. I shall stick with blue-reds from now on.

Polishes -Revlon - Holochrome Nail Enamel Collection (All)

on 10/15/2017 3:48:00 AM

I got excited and bought all eight of these from Ulta's website. So far, I haven't seen these polishes in stores or even heard that much about them online. I assume that they are LE but maybe it'll turn out that they're not, who knows? These shades are different from your run-of-the-mill Revlon polishes. This collection has metallic, duochrome, and "holographic" (I'll explain the quotation marks later) finishes. That's a slight departure from what you usually find at the drugstore. But the Holochrome Collection was, for me, a letdown overall.

Formula-wise, all eight polishes were fairly decent. Opaque in two coats, I can say that about all of them. But the gold metallic (Gilded Goddess) and the silver metallic (Molten Magic) were extremely streaky and showed just about every brushstroke. The other metallic in the collection, Blushing, did not have the same problem. It actually ended up being my favorite in the whole collection and the only one that I would buy again. I'll break down what I thought of each one:

Amethyst Smoke: It's a purple/green duochrome and not an especially good one either. It looks a bit murky on the nail and isn't very color-shifty at all. You're better off with Essie's For The Twill Of It.

Fairy Dust: One of the four holo polishes in the collection, it's the minty sea-green one. Not much color intensity with this shade, it looks a little bit washed-out. And the holo is nowhere to be seen! You know, I honestly can't tell if these are supposed to be linear holos or scattered holos because I DON'T SEE ANY HOLO AT ALL. And that's the truth. Just some greyish-silvery sparkle throughout. You're better off with Color Club's Angel Kiss.

Galactic Pink: Everything I just said about Fairy Dust applies to this one too, except it's pink. Just get Color Club's Miss Bliss.

Hologasm: It's silver and it has the same problems as the previous two. Just get Color Club Harp On It. They have some nerve calling this "Hologasm", btw!

Unicornicopia: It's the lavender holo one without any holo in it. Better options are Color Club's Date With Destiny or Cloud Nine.

Gilded Goddess: This is a gold chrome metallic. As I mentioned before, it doesn't have the best formula. And there are a million of these out there anyway. I recommend Essie's Good As Gold over this.

Molten Magic: This is the silver chrome metallic with the streaky, problematic formula. And there are a million of these out there as well. I recommend Essie's No Place Like Chrome if you're looking for a good one.

Blushing: Wow, the only one I actually liked and it looked like it was the most boring one at first glance. This is a warm-toned pink with a metallic, almost-but-not-quite frosty finish. No visible brushstrokes either. It's basically what I had hoped Essie's Pink Diamond would be.

But seven out of the eight were losers for me, so I marked my review "no" I wouldn't buy this again.

I purchased this in Coral, which is a light orange toned coral, bright but not neon. I was very impressed by the payoff; my lips are quite pigmented, yet the color was almost opaque in two coats. I also liked that it was comfortable to wear and not drying. It really did feel like a cool gel on my lips, yet didn't smear or bleed excessively. I liked the precision of the slanted product bullet. On the other hand, I didn't like the medicinal fake tropical fruit scent, or the tube that persistently fell down on or rolled off of my vanity. The good outweighs the bad; while Coral didn't work with my skintone, I can see myself trying out another shade or two.
