Revlon Lagoon Afternoon

I have another polish from the Revlon LE Haute Tropics collection. I have big buyers remorse over this one. I saw the color and thought "Wow, what a cool looking blue!". Once I purchased it, the whole way back home in the car I was thinking "Darn it, I'm pretty sure I have a color like this!". As soon as I got home I knew exactly what color to compare it to, and I was right. I bought a dupe, and a really sucky dupe at that.

Lagoon Afternoon

Lagoon Afternoon is a bright blue creme.

This is basically the exact same color as China Glaze Hanging in the Balance.

Color: Nice pigmented blue! The color is nice, but it's not original.

Formula: HORRIBLE! The formula was thin, messy, and flooded my cuticles. This applied unevenly and streaky. Yuck. Terrible.

Price: I don't remember exactly, but I think I paid around $5 for this at Walgreens.

Overall: Pass on this one. If you want a color like this go with the China Glaze version. The formula is better. I know the China Glaze will be more expensive in stores, but I think the higher price is worth it. I really can't find any redeeming qualities on this one. Well, the name is cute? Still, not worth it!

My Rating: 1 out of 5 Paint Splatters

Yeah, I gave it one paint splatter for the name. Haha.

Happy Thursday!

    I will hold out for the CG dupe for this one LOL. At least the name got it one paint splatter!!!

  3. Pretty color! Bummer about the formula, though, good thing there are lots of similar colors with better formulas :)

  4. Its a great color but good to know its not as good as the China Glaze one.

    Love that there's a dupe for this but sad you had to endure flooded cuticles to figure out which was better. That's always lame!

  6. Such a bummer it's a dupe, and a lousy one too! But the color indeed is lovely :).

  8. It is such a pretty color! It's sad that the formula sucks :( I hate when polishes are like that!
