REVLON // 4-Piece Splendid Giftset [On Sale for only $20!]Wednesday, March 12, 2014
This is described as 'an opulent and sophisticated fragrance with a blend of peony, freesia and red berries'. I didn't know what to expect with the fragrance as has never smelt any of Revlon's offerings, but I am pleasantly surprised. It is extremely floral and very soft and feminine.
Along with the perfume is the body spray. This takes me back to my Impulse spray loving days where we would dose ourselves in that stuff, so this is definitely a bit of a throw back. It has the same scent, but obviously not as strong as the perfume, so good for lazy days or also really nice as a room spray.
I think it was having this lip butter in the set that really sold it to me as these retail for around $25 at Revlon stands. I have 3 already (Gumdrop, Lollipop + Sugar Plum) and I really love the formulas. Cotton Candy is a light pink with gold shimmer throughout. The other 3 Lip Butters I already have aren't as sheer as this one, but you can build up the colour on the lips that leaves a pink sheen. They are very comfortable and moisturising as well.
004. Nail Enamel in 211 Charming
Along with the lip butter I was happy to have a nail polish included. I am a huge fan of their polishes and have fair amount of their colours and this shade in Charming was one I was missing. It is light, pastel lavender that is opaque in 2 coats and has a high shiny finish to it.
I would say that most Farmers would have these gift sets for clearance as the Farmers at Riccarton in Christchurch had a huge amount. At $20, you can't go wrong, so rush out to Farmers as soon as you can and nab a deal! I am holding back from going and purchasing one of each other set too... I promise I won't... but I might...
