Revlon Runway 2011

I’m a sucker for limited edition beauty products, especially when the price is right and it’s a worthy of being so hard to find. I knew I needed this polish and lipstick for two reasons:



1. The lipstick was featured at the Rag & Bone event during Fashion’s Night Out back in September and is appropriately named ‘Fashion’s Night Pout’. It was released specifically for the event and could be purchased at that time for $50 a tube with the money going to charity and a photo op with Halle Berry.

Gucci Westman, Global Artistic Director for Revlon designed this shade specifically for the event. It was music to my ears when I found out that it was being released as a limited edition product for the rest of the general population to purchase. If you can get your hands on this, please do! It’s supposed to be a universally flattering nude and I can see why. It’s a very neutral nude and doesn’t pull too cool or warm toned.

2. The nail polish was another must-have for me. This shade is named ‘Black with Envy’ and it's being compared to Chanel’s ‘Black Pearl’. I’ve seen swatch comparisons online and I have to say they’re very similar. I’d also much rather pay $5 for a bottle of the Revlon than $20+ for the Chanel. The formula of Revlon polishes is another plus for me. They glide on very smooth and I like the brush.

Do you track down limited edition beauty items?

That lipstick is right up my alley! Revlon is a good brand, very comparable to department store brands from the reviews I've read online.

I do like limited editions, but of course, the bad part is when you want more of it later on :-)


Hop on the No Rules Blog Tour!

Ooh how much did you pay for the lipstick? Sounds like good deals on both and they are pretty colors. Both colors I'd totally rock!

I am trying to cut back on buying cosmetics. I have so much that I completely forget about then randomly find, so I am trying to stop hehe :)

That lipstick intrigues me......I am going to have to see it on before I decide my take on it. Nudes can go either way for me!

I have Black Pearl and that DOES look very similar! I must admit that I'm a sucker for Chanel limited edition polishes!

I totally track down limited edition products. I just did a post about the Chanel Jade nail polish I have, and I was all over the Lancome Pret a Porter lipsticks, the lippies they created with designers. I even have back ups of those in boxes. My favorite was Proenza Pink.

I just found the nail color and lipstick at my Walgreen's! I loved them both so much I went back and bought the rest of their "Fashion's Night Pout" and picked up another "Black with Envy" for my sister. Love these colors, thanks for posting!
