This Week’s Revlon ~ After Party

Posted on: February 18, 2014

After Party from Revlon is part of a Gucci Westman collection released sometime late 2012. Gucci Westman is a famous make up artist and now a cosmetic artist. She was hired by Revlon as Global Artistic Director and to collaborate on their make up lines. I must say that in the past couple of years I have noticed an increased interest in the make up offered from Revlon. Their eyeshadows, blushes and mascara seem to be more useable and fresh then they used to be. I have never been one to buy Revlon make up but this spring I did buy a cream blush that I completely used up. So I must have liked it, considering I have a dozen or so blushes in my make up drawer! Ha!
I’m curious, have you noticed Revlon make up has gotten better? Worse? Or the same?

After Party from Revlon is a blue green color that reminded me of the little blue spruce tree in my Dad’s front lawn. My brother Jim got this tree for them when they first moved back from Maui about 10 years ago. It hasn’t grown much and at times I thought it was a goner, but it’s still standing.

Sorry, I digress! Back to the polish. After Party has no number so we know that means its not part of Revlon’s regular line and probably has been re-promoted with a different name. I have looked in all the stores in my area to see if I could identify the one in their core line, but no luck.
I usually am not very fond of green nail polish, but this one has enough blue in it that it may be one of my new favorites. The formula, brush etc… was classic Revlon.

These pictures are all 2 coats with a coat of Seche-Vite. I could have easily got by with 1 coat, but out of habit I did 2. Within a day there was noticeable tip wear, (see pointer finger) but I think that was operator error and not the fault of the polish. Next time I will “wrap the tips” and that should take care of that problem.

UPDATE: I am still at my Dad’s house while he is in Hawaii. I will be home Friday, YAY!! I miss my home and my nail polish. Which I know sounds weird but some of you will “get” what I’m talking about. 😘

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
