For me, Revlon is a brand that is always consistently good in terms of formula, but never exciting.
Well, I stand corrected. Consider the wind well and truly taken out of my sails.
Facets of Fuschia is a glitter flakie. No, you read that correctly. Revlon have come up with a glitter flakie and it’s phen-freaking-nomenal.
Facets of Fuschia has a murky black base which takes around 3-4 coats to build up. Once it’s built up, it’s magical. Small dots of glitter mix with hexagonal all over the nai
As with lots of flakies, this dried roughly. I had run out of Seche when I did this swatch so please excuse the rough finish. I suspect just one coat of Seche would resolve the finish and leave you with a trapped within look.
As soon as I saw this, I thought of China Glaze’s Mummy May I, from their 2010 Halloween Collection. So I decided to do a side by side.
The lacquers are similar at first look but there are some big differences. Mummy May I has a burgundy /plum base whilst Facets of Fuschia is most definitely a more charcoal-esque base. Also, Mummy May I has just small glitter pieces whilst Facets of Fuschia has thrown in some hexagons for giggles.
If you are having trouble finding Mummy May I, Facets of Fuschia is more than a good enough substitute. Indeed, I think I might like it better.
