A couple of weekends ago, Rexall (a Canadian drugstore) was giving away these $5 off $25 coupons. I had to pick up some non-cosmetic items that added up to a little over $22, so I traipsed over to the nail polish to check out what I could get for ~$3. Revlon’s classic line was on sale for $2.99. I’ve already bought a bunch of Revlon polishes this summer when Shoppers Drug Mart (another Canadian drugstore) had a sale, but there are so many colors to go around! I think this Rexall location stocked more Revlon colors than the SDMs I went to, as well. I love a deal, don’t you?
Tangerine (410) is a bright, juicy midtoned orange with fine, golden orange shimmer. The color leans a touch more yellow than red, but overall it’s a pretty true orange. It’s perhaps a little closer to the inside of a tangerine than the outside, since I find tangerines run a little redder than your typical orange.
It’s semi-sheer, though you can get it to full opacity with three coats. One or two coats is also fine, if you prefer a sheer look. I’d prefer a little more pigmentation, but I guess that’s the nature of a semi-sheer formula.
Application was really nice. No problems here! Thumbs up for this one.
Revlon Nail Enamel retails for around US$4.99 / CA$5.99 and is 0.5 US fl oz / 14.7 mL. They are free of toluene, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and are made in the USA.
Revlon was founded in 1932 by the Revson brothers and Charles Lachman—hence, RevLon!. (I guess makeup sells during a Depression.) It is a public company based in New York, NY, USA.
