Revlon Spring Minis Part Two: Waterfall, Sparkle, and Garden

Here's the second set of spring minis from the display I found: Waterfall, a pale blue with fine silver shimmer; Sparkle, a clear base with multi-sized silvery rainbow glitter ( I hesitate to call this holo, but you get the idea); and Garden, a spring-y green with a good dose of yellow. I was instantly attracted to all three of these shades, unlike the last trio. Waterfall is a gorgeous shade and I only needed two coats for opacity - but I have a problem with this one. It has lumps. O_o What is THAT? Is it because of the shimmer? I don't even know. Sparkle is sparse on its own, so I have layered it over the other two shades - it's a great topper. And I lovelovelove Garden, it's perfect. I'd like a big bottle, please Revlon. Two coats, it's a perfect creme.
(PS, sorry for the kind of crappy package shots. I think the plastic makes it almost seem blurry.)


Waterfall.


Garden.


Sparkle over Waterfall first, Garden next.



I've heard that Waterfall is pretty dupey looking to the full sized light blue spring release from Revlon - the name's escaping me right now. Also, apparently Sparkle is similar to one of their previous glitters. So, Garden is the only original in this bunch.

  3. I think you're thinking of Blue Lagoon? It's pretty lumpy like Waterfall, though.

  8. These are so pretty! I picked them up and put them down like 5 times when I was at Walgreens the other day. I thought the blue was Blue Lagoon, so I was confused when I read the name and it said Waterfall. Even though it's lumpy, your swatches have convinced me that I need to go back and snag this set now! :)

  9. @Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes Haha! I read that the full sized blue had lumps too. I could have done without that too!

  10. @Lydia That's the one! :) I read that too, sad. Such a pretty shade for the application and finish to be like that.

  12. @MissMidnightBlue I could, but it's not really thick, I wasn't expecting the lumps because of that!

  13. @colourcoated.com I know, I love this set even in spite of the lumps! I'd still have gotten it myself.
