Every season Revlon treats us to a new make-up collection, and this fall and winter are no exception. The Revlon fall and winter collection of 2013/14 is called Evening Opulence and consists of three new lip gloss colors, two new nail polish colors and three new eyeshadow quads. Revlon recently sent me five of the eight new Evening Opulence products (I guess they assumed that I already have enough eyeshadow*) and today I’d like to show them to you.
* Nonsense of course, a girl can never have too much eyeshadow!
Revlon Evening Opulence ColorBurst Lipgloss in Bejeweled, Adorned & Embellished
- Bejeweled: soft nude pink with a hint of shimmer
- Adorned: bright fuchsia pink with sparkles
- Embellished: sparkly dark blueberry purple
Bejeweled, Adorned and Embellished all have a pleasant and very moisturizing formula that smoothly glides on my lips without feeling sticky. Bejeweled has very little color though, and it adds mostly just shine. It’s the perfect lip gloss for those who like to keep it subtle or who like to put the focus on the eyes.
Adorned and Embellished on the other hand are both very pigmented, so if you’re not afraid to go bold then these two are definitely the way to go for you. Beware though, because Embellished does have some issues with evenness and it also tends to emphasize the lines on my lips a bit. Adorned doesn’t do that at all and has a perfectly even and opaque finish. So if you’re looking for a fuss-free application and finish, then Adorned would be your best choice.
As far as wear goes all three colors are more or less the same. Even the two bright colors easily survive a meal and they never completely disappear, not even after several hours. They just slowly turn from a bright lip gloss into a more subtle lip stain.
So in short, Embellished is a bit of a letdown in terms of finish, but other than that the three new ColorBurst Lipgloss glosses from the Evening Opulence collection definitely do not disappoint.
Revlon Evening Opulence Nail Enamel in Seductive & Rich
- Seductive: deep dark purple
- Rich: grayish silver with golden sparkles and a slight duochrome effect
The formula of both Seductive and Rich is great. Both colors are easy to apply, are fast-drying and are not prone to tip wear or chipping. They’re not completely identical though, because it takes at least two coats of Seductive for a nice and even finish, whereas one layer of Rich already does the trick. So while I’m happy with both nail polishes, Rich definitely does better in terms of quality and – for me at least – also in terms of color.
I had to get used to some of the colors from the collection (especially the bright pink and the dark berry lip gloss were way out of my comfort zone) and there are some quality differences when it comes to the coverage and finish of the products, but one thing is for sure: Revlon’s new Evening Opulence collection is sexy, über feminine and perfect for the upcoming holidays. My two favorite products from the collection? The Revlon ColorBurst Lipgloss in Adorned and the Revlon Nail Enamel in Rich.
The Revlon Evening Opulence ColorBurst Lipgloss and Nail Enamel are respectively sold for approximately 17.90 and 14.90 CHF.
