Revlon Matte Suede collection

As I've said before, I'm not a huge matte lover. So when I heard about the new Revlon matte suede collection, I was going to pass on it. I truthfully didn't give it much thought. A couple of weeks ago I started seeing swatches of Ruby Ribbon, and thought it looked really pretty. Not like the kind of matte that I'm used to. More shinny. know what happens next....I decided to try them out. I bought two, but liked them so much, I know have all four.

Ruby Ribbon,Powder Puff,Emerald City and Fire Fox.

Today I'm going to show you Powder Puff. It's a white matte with a very light blue shimmer. I absolutely couldn't get the shimmer to pick up on the camera, but it's there. :-) There are two things going on for me here. One, I never wear white polish and two the matte thing and I don't get along. However, I LOVE this polish! It reminds me of marshmallow puff. Application was really good. I was surprised. I figured it would be streaky, but it wasn't at all. I used three coats, and it dried super fast. I didn't use a top coat as that would take away from the suede effect. Please try to ignore the UGLY eye sore on my middle finger. :-/ I got a bit impatient with my cuticle, and it shows. :-( Sorry for that. I've waited a few days to swatch, but couldn't stand it any longer! LOL!

You can KINDA see the blue shimmer in this have to look close

I will be swatching the other three colors soon. :-)


  1. they are very holiday looking, can't wait to see the rest!

  2. It's so pretty in the up close pic, like freshly fallen snow!

  3. WOW that's cool! I love that it's matte, but has shimmer, I might need that!

  4. That is a gorgeous polish! It's going on my wish list!

  5. I might I have to check into getting some of these. Have to wait to see the rest of your swatches

  6. This collection reminds me of their "Felted" collection from so many years ago, I need to break out my old polish from this collection! :)
