Revlon Perplex

Many thanks to Erin, one of my lovely readers who offered to pick up an extra Revlon Perplex for me! I saw it last month when we were out of town, but thought "do I really need this?", and naturally, the very next day I was awash in feelings of regret for passing it up! I still haven't seen this locally, so thank you Erin for satisfying my polish desires.



Perplex is a very deep, very smoky lavenderish/purplish (huh, now why wouldn't spell check recognize those words?!) shade with hidden shimmer. Depending on the lighting, it looks more purple at times, or more of a dusty dark lavender with hints of charcoal. Because I'm a freak about colors, it's always interesting to me to study the cotton ball after removing a polish. With Perplex, the only color on the cotton ball is a flat, muddy charcoal shade.

The formula on this shade was very good, and from what I've seen, it is definitely a very, very close dupe to Chanel Paradoxal at a fraction of the cost. Subtle shimmer, smokiness, dustiness, purples, charcoals, quick and easy application with 2 coats--if you haven't picked this one up yet, it's definitely one you need!

  7. I just got this color and I really like it. There is a ton of it at the CVS near me. I'd be happy to help people get their hands on it.

  8. This is so pretty. My girlfriend went out looking for this and the Milani glitters for 2 days. She went to about 6 different stores. No such luck. I'm sure it will eventually turn up.

  9. I'm so glad that you liked it! :) I had a great time wearing mine as well!

    Also, I always get to feeling a little frumpy when my word processor won't recognize the word "blurple." Haha!
