Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia - dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance!

Ooh ladies a good dupe like this makes me happy.  While perusing the Revlon stand to try and locate Carbonite, a rumoured dupe for Chanel's Graphite, I came across this little beauty and after one little glance, popped it in my basket.  I've been coveting Bad Romance from Deborah Lippmann ever since buying Across The Universe and this is a dupe if ever I saw one!
Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia
This is one of Revlon's new shades for the Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection - Expressionists, designed by Gucci Westman, Revlon Global Artistic Director.  It's currently on offer in Boots for €6 instead of €9 so get one pronto before the offer ends.  Facets of Fuchsia is packed full of regular fuchsia glitter and hexagonal glitter in a black purple jelly base.  I can't stop looking at it!

This is a polish that needs at least 2 coats to become fully opaque and for my photos here, I applied 3 thick coats.  A tip when applying polishes like this one and Across The Universe, try not to drag the brush along your nail.  This will drag the glitter along with it and you want to have an even placement of it so that it looks purty.  Let each coat dry properly and you'll be good to go.

I love how thick the base is so that the bigger hexagonal glitters become more immersed in it, partly peeking out to say hi.

What do you think?  Do we like?
