A/W Revlon Collection | Lip Butters & Nail Polish

Hello Everyone!

I've been meaning to post this for ages but have had no time! I went back to school on Thursday and let's just say I am not looking forward to this year, I'm doing my GCSE's! :( Anyway, these three products were featured in last weeks big beauty haulLINK and today I'm going to showing swatches and talking about each product.
First off, these three products are from the new Revlon Autumn/Winter collection 'Evening Opulance' created by Gucci Westman. The collection includes a smokey purple eyeshadow quad, brightening eyeliner kajal, two nail polishes (the one I don't have is a purple colour) three colour burst lip glosses (but I've only seen two?) and two new lip butter shades. At first I only bought the Lip Butter in 'Provocative' but I went back for 'Invite Only' and ended up walking away with the nail polish in 'Rich' too! From promo images I think I may have to get the other polish too if I can find it! 

♥ Colour Burst Lip Butters in 'Invite Only' and 'Provocative' ♥ £7.99 each

Top - Bottom: Invite Only, Provocative
Both of these lip butters come in the standard lip butter packaging however these ones have sparkles all over them ooh! Also, 'Provocative' has silver outer packaging but the actual lip butter is purple, so is a little different to the usual lip butters packaging being the same colour as the product! Anyway, even though these look very scary colours in the bullets (um, mint green lips?!) they actually are really pretty on and are definitely not the colour you would imagine them to come out!
Invite Only is the sheerer of the two, even though the swatch seems to look silvery it's actually clear and super shiny so that's why it looks like that! It has lots and lots of blue iridescent shimmer running throughout it but my camera has failed to pick it up :(
Provocative has a stronger tint of purple to it however I did run it over my hand quite a lot for the swatch so you can see what it looks like intensely. When swiped once it has a subtle slight purple tint and this one has lots of purple shimmer running throughout it. The glitter in these too aren't chunky though so it doesn't feel weird and uncomfortable which is great!

♥ Nail Polish in 'Rich' ♥ £6.49

I really don't like dark polish both in general and on my nails however I've come to discover I actually really like dark polishes if they are shimmery/duo chrome or glittery. Anyway, this is a sort of deep gunmetal grey with gold-ish shimmer throughout it. I've only ever tried one other Revlon polish but this has a easy to work with formula and required two coats to be opaque, also it doesn't feel 'scratchy' but if you really don't like that feeling a topcoat sorts it out. I really like this and I cannot wait to wear it when it starts getting colder which won't be long as the nights are drawing in and my feet are cold which is a sure sign we are going into Autumn! Yay :D

So this was a rather long overview/review but I hope you enjoyed it! I am so excited for lots of the new A/W collections coming out and I don't even know what ones are out now so if anyone knows/has recommendations please let me know! Anyway, I'm off to do some online browsing of Autumn clothes & beauty things so hope you have had a lovely evening!
