Revlon Sparkling

Hi lovelies! Today I have a new, pretty, girly glitter from Revlon. When I first saw it on the store shelf, it first reminded me of the recent Essie Luxe Effects A Cut Above glitter because of the rose gold looking color. But then I picked it up and saw that it’s a mix of different sized glitter. So when I got home, I did a little research and found that this is supposed to be a dupe for Deborah Lippman Some Enchanted Evening. LOL! In my last post I had a rainbow glitter that I specifically picked up because I thought it looked a lot like DL Happy Birthday. And then, without knowing, I pick up another glitter that is “supposed” to be a dupe for another DL glitter. Obviously I must really (subconsciously and consciously) want a DL glitter polish, hahaha!
Check out the pics!

So the mix of glitter floats in a clear base. It consists of medium and small hex glitter and some small round glitter. Surprisingly there’s also some small holo glitter that is spread out and sparkles nicely when the light catches it. I used one coat of Sparkling over OPI I Brake for Manicures (alone in the pic below).
I didn’t try Sparkling alone but I can tell from when I put it on that it wouldn’t be opaque. Overall, I do think it’s pretty but I don’t absolutely love it. I think I would have liked it a lot more if the bigger hex glitters wouldn’t apply so sparse.
But since I do love the beautiful eggplant creme that’s almost a one coater that I layered Sparkling over, I decided to show you a pic of it alone (: This is two coats of OPI I Brake for Manicures.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Reminds me of not only the DL but also Essie A Cut Above from Luxeffects. Loving I Brake For Manicures on you too--very vampy!

    1. Yep, thats exactly what it reminds me of! And thanks (:

  2. I really like this combo! And i've never seen that colour of OPI before but now I need it! It looks so nice!!! :-)

    1. Thanks! Yeah, this OPI color is my go to dark "almost" black... never really liked the way black looks on me :(
