NOTD:- Revlon Red 680

Revlon Red is an iconic classic red from about the 1950's but it was discontinued 
and I think it was relaunched in 2011

It is a true red shade -literally the shade of healthy fresh red blood 

 it is available in a lip nail combo which is fab for those amongst us who love a matching lip nail combo
I like this idea but its not a must have for me, its more of a just a nice to have.
The matching lipstick is Revlon super lustrous lipstick in ' Revlon Red  730 ' it is a creme formula

I do like Revlon nail polishes, they are high quality, dont contain alot of the nasty chemicals found in nail polishes and quite affordable at around £6.50 from boots and superdrugs

I have recently found that you can buy some nice revlon nail polish shades online at cheapsmells for about £3 which includes delivery in UK.
so check out that website for discounted products including Mac cosmetics, I recently purchased an eye cream and had a good snoop on the website.

Revlon Red nail Enamel on the nails 
I have on two coats of revlon red, and a finishing coat of my Seche Vite top coat

The Revlon nail enamels are quite opaque 
and this shade is a creme formula and opaque in one coat 
I did want to see how long it lasts with two coats 
but I did find my nail color to get damaged after an hour of application this time 

There was a rumour going around that you may have heard where christian louboutin was considering a red under sole for his shoes and grabbed his secretarys nail polish which was Revlon red and painted the under-side of the shoe with the lacquer which is where he supposedly got the inspiration for the red undersoles of his shoe. 

Im unsure as to whether there is any truth in this as I find that the undersole of my louboutins are a slightly more orange shade compared to the true redness of the revlon red. 

(ps I know I have tinsy feet)

The revlon red is a perfect match for my red patent leather iphone 4 clutch case though!
Maybe there might be a new story to go around? 

Do you have any of these products? 
Id love to know your thoughts ? 

PS I will be updating you on my absence soon.
