I mentioned in my post on Marmalade from this same line of polish that I picked up Provence when CVS was running a killer sale on Revlon polishes. I got this polish, which usually retails for around $8, for $.99! I picked this particular shade for a couple of reasons. First, when I hear Provence, I immediately think of two of my favorite things; France and wine. And secondly, I have very few pale purple polishes that actually have a decent formula. I still have nightmares about Essie Lilacism! Buttercup is a pale yellow from this line and really impressed me, so I figured I’d give pale purple a try.
Provence is a very pale purple creme. It has slight blue undertones but nothing very noticeable. The color is really lovely and understated. And the best part…the formula is wonderful. I did use three coats, but the formula wasn’t thin, runny or streaky.
I truly am a fan of the Revlon ColorStay line and I was very skeptical when I initially tried it. That was very apparent in my post on Vintage Rose. But, I have been won over!
Below the jump are a couple of shots of when I layered essence Gagalectric over Provence. It turned out really lovely.
I’d love to hear your opinions on the ColorStay line. Especially if you’ve found a color you think I should check out!
