Revlon — Dreamer (Nail Enamel) Swatch & Review

Brand: Revlon

I own a lot of Revlon polishes because they occasionally go on sale here in Canada for about $2.99, and at that price, I usually can’t pass up grabbing a handful! I just wish that the LE shades would go on sale, too; the regular price can be as high as $6–7, and frankly, Revlon polish isn’t usually worth that much. The colors can be great, though!

Dreamer (410) is one of the more lackluster options in the core collection. I think it’s going to end up in my purge pile, pretty soon. Color-wise, it’s lovely: a barely dusty, pastel sky blue cream that leans a teensy bit periwinkle.

The formula, however, isn’t terribly good. Pastels, am I right? It’s a little on the thin side and it applies unevenly. I used three coats in my swatch, and I think it still looks a bit streaky. It’s not horrible, but you can do better in the drugstore (for example, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Babe Blue applied beautifully, for me).

  1. I got suckered into the Revlon 50% off sale last week at Rexall… $3.99, not $2.99 though. I was just on a nail polish kick! I picked up some of the new 2016 ones including Untamed and Romantique.
    Pastels, you can’t live with them, can’t live without them, I always say! 😛
    It’s a pretty shade though – would flatter most skin tones I’d imagine. Note to self: look for Sally Hansen Babe Blue.
