Deborah Lippman Bad Romance and Revlon Facets of Fuchsia

Hi Everyone :)

After I posted my Anti-Valentines mani (Deborah Lippman Bad Romance) on Friday, the lovely gingerlovesmakeup reminded me that Revlon Facets of Fuchsia is a dupe (duplicate). So I thought a side by side comparison/review was a good idea.

Here they both are in the bottle:

The black base of Bad Romance is slightly darker and it has a bit more glitter. Otherwise they look pretty similar right?

209.2 Deborah Lippman Bad Romance and Revlon Facets Of Fuchsia 01

This is three coats of each, (only two were needed but I smudged!), with two coats of Catrice Quick Dry and High Shine Top Coat. (My new favourite topcoat!)

Bad Romance is on my middle and pinkie fingers and Facets of Fuchsia is on my index and ring finger.

So you can see here the black jelly base in Bad Romance is darker and more opaque. It looked like it had more glitter in the bottle but about the same amount comes out on the nails. (I did have to spread out the glitter when using Bad Romance because it clumped a bit). The darker base means that the glitter seems dulled/darkened more on the nails.

Also, because the black jelly base in Facets of Fuchsia is thinner/lighter, it is easier to apply and the glitter goes on the nail more evenly. It also looks brighter/sparklier because the jelly base doesn’t cover it as heavily.

If I had to choose a winner it would be Revlon Facets of Fuchsia because: 1. It’s cheaper, 2. The formula is easier to apply and 3. The glitter appears sparklier :)

If you like this look then definitely try the Revlon. Hope you enjoyed this comparison.

 

Thanks for looking!

  1. Honestly, I do not get the difference and I am sure that it won;t tell when you are wearing either of them. I love them both, they are very mysterious and dark but at the same time luxuriously feminine ♥
