Revlon Royal Cloak

OMG.  Major lemming fulfilled.


Royal Cloak was one of the polish nightmare situations where you see in the store, pick it up, put it down.  Come back to the store, pick it up, put it down.  Finally decide you need it, go to store, polish nowhere to be found.  Head to palm.  The end.


However, it was not the end!  I searched high and low online for this and finally found in on Traci from the Trace Face Philes blog sale and literally jumped her inbox.  With shipping, it was cheaper than it would've been in the store and it was a full bottle.  Total score.


In two coats, we fell in love.  A medium blue-toned purple infused with silver flakies.  Ah, gorgeousness in a bottle.




Isn't this simply magical?  My heart skips a beat looking at this macro shot.

Before I forget, Royal Cloak was a limited edition from the Revlon Fall 2011 Masquerade collection.  If you can get your hands on it, I recommend you never take them off.

Anyone else have a story like this?

  4. When it's for charity (I'm assuming the fundraiser in this case was for charity), it doesn't feel as bad when you spend that much. But if nothing else, this is a gorgeous polish. Hope you enjoy it!

  5. Haha I know exactly what you mean about not buying a polish, then not being able to find it again!!!

  6. Stunning! I'm so glad you were able to add it to your collection, I know you wanted it soooo bad. I was lucky when Marisa sent it to me, she made my day! This reminds me of the girl that assaulted me at Target, she may have been searching for it and then lost it when she saw me pick up the polish she was lemming, haha!

  12. YES!!  Same story (ish).  I saw this in the store, loved it, but decided to get something else.  Did this again.  Came back and it was gone :(.  Then, 1 bottle was found tucked away in with other nail polishes, and my love got it for me for Christmas! :D  I LOVE this polish! :D

  15. Yay for finding this! And with Revlons you always have to check all the displays because I've also found hidden gems in the wrong displays.

  16. I love, love, love this polish!!  Haven't worn it yet, but I still love it, lol.  My nightmare was a different one.  I searched high and low and didn't see it anywhere.  Then one day, there it was, sitting on its own away from all the other Revlons.  I definitely did a little happy dance in the store.

  17. I've been there, only the polish magically appears after I finally cave in and order it online and pay shipping. But this polish is just so lovely, I have to forgive it the frustration it caused :)
