Revlon Popular, or is it Starry Pink?

Happy Pink Wednesday

Last fall when the Expressionists collection was released by Revlon I picked up Facets of Fuchsia and Blue Mosaic; I left Starry Pink in the display and walked away a happy camper. Then I saw it. Starry Pink was dominating the blogosphere and the collector in me weeped. I passed that beauty up. My hunt for her proved pointless because she was gone... 

... 2 months later ...

Revlon released a "New Shades" display with some great new colours. Brights, neutrals, glitters, cremes -- hang on, GLITTERS?! Yep. Whimsical came home with me. So did Popular. Popular, my good friends, is Starry Pink incarnate. Re-released under a different name, she is now mine.

(Really hoping my dramatics haven't cost you your readership, I'm just havin' some good ol' fun.)

Revlon Popular
3 coats, no topcoat


What a beauty she is.

Popular (aka: Starry Pink) is a beautiful light pink crème with silver micro and hexagon glitter. The glitter looks to be white most of the time but I prodded a couple out of the bottle, wiped off the polish and they are silver. They suspend beautifully in the base and give a white cast to them which is highly unique, in my opinion. Three coats gave an opaque finish. 

I own nothing like this in my collection and am very grateful to have found it. I mentioned in a previous post my distaste for re-promoting polishes but changing their names, but I am very grateful for that in this situation. 

Is there a polish you wish was re-promoted? Let me know in the comments!

  2. Joseph Howe Superstore.. a little hidden gem of a grocery store because it STILL has these, but with their older names ;) It's almost like the beauty department is forgotten about, because I find quite a few goodies there :)

  3. This is a truly amazing polish! I own Starry Pink and it is definitely the same to Popular.
    I'm just generally irritated a little bit with the whole thing - I was running errands for Westman collection just because it was limited and they released the permanent ones almost immediately after it was sold out:(

  4. I dislike companies renaming polishes, but at least these are being added to their core line.

    This looks so pretty on you! Maybe one day I'll cave and purchase.

  7. I would have liked this one except for the black specks that I just cannot get past. I do think it's silly for companies to just rename old polishes, we're going to figure them out anyway!

  9. This is so beautiful! I find that the original had more silver glitter in it (at least in the bottle I had before I returned it to the store :/). I like this version so much better!!
