Revlon Amethyst

Revlon, I bloody love it. Do I even need to go through it again? Ever since their reformulated, wider brushed Colorstay line started popping up into stores I’ve slowly been acquiring every colour under the sun. One of my favourites is this beauty, Amethyst.

I’m really into purples at the moment; OPI Purple With a Purpose does it for me with it’s shiny purple creamy colour, and Amethyst is giving it a run for its money with its metallic purple hue. Not exactly the most subtle of colours, but one that looks sleek, minimal and sort of sophisticated. When I announced to friends that I had purchased this colour I was greeted with a chorus of ‘Oh hell no’s’, with quite a few complaining about it’s streaky application. But with the improved wider brushes, I can happily say that this didn’t apply too badly – you do need a steady hand and a bit of patience, but two coats is all that was needed. Oh and it does look fab on the toes as well, I couldn’t stop staring at them on the train – sounds stranger than it was, promise!

I picked this up from Lifestyle for Rs.350, but it’s also available from Nykaa and it’s on a 10% off offer right now – I know what I’m browsing on my lunch break! Any idea what your go-to Spring polish is going to be?
