Deborah Lippmann "Bad Romance" vs. Revlon "Facets of Fuchsia"

*ding ding*














In the right corner weighing in at .5 fl oz., costing $18.00, we have the ever popular,  bad girl of glitter.. Deborah Lippmann's "BAD ROMANCE"!... *the crowd roars*

In the left corner weighing in at exactly the same weight of .5 fl. oz., costing $3.74 (plus tax), we have the up and coming champ, the new kid on the block, Revlon's "FACETS OF FUCHSIA" *fans cheer*

Let's get ready to RUMBLLLLLLLLLLE!














The fighters go toe-to-toe...Let's keep this clean ladies, no hitting below the belt :)















Left to Right: DL, Revlon, DL, Revlon.


Left to Right: DL, Revlon, DL, Revlon.














Left to Right: Revlon, DL

This was a grueling fight, both are swatched at 3 coats, and as you can see the Revlon delivers some serious left hooks of "mini- glitter" overload, compared to the Lippmann.  The mini glitter is here for a fight ladies :)














 Left to Right: Revlon, DL, Revlon

Both were opaque in 2 coats (but I just had to do 3 coats), and both went on smoothly, but as you can see, the Revlon has a lot more "mini glitter" than the Lippmann. ..*a right upper cut to the rib cage*

 Left to Right: Revlon, DL

Even though I love the Lippmann for being a great contender, it can't beat the Revlon's extra 1-2 punch of glitter power. ..*Uh-oh the Lippmann is stumbling*














Left to Right; DL, Revlon, DL, Revlon

What's this?......The Lippmann has a darker base, as you can see above, and thus delivers a stronger contrast between the "eye catching pink glitter" and it's darker "brooding base".  * the Lippmann delivers a jab/cross combo, the Revlon is against the ropes* :)














So who is the winner of this famous "toe-to-toe" match up??....only you can decide, but if you were to ask me...either one of these beauties would be a champ in any girls collection. :P

Keep It Sweet!

Fashion Footing said...

Love the commentary :-)

I just bought the Revlon version this morning because I can't quite bring myself to buy an $18 bottle of nail polish, even though I WANT TO SO BADLY!

But this looks like it will suffice!

Thanks!

Leah said...

You rock!

@L- You did? I'm so behind on following my beloved blog sisters :)

@Deez nailz- Thank U :)

@Rock-or-not- Yeah, you can't beat a great glitter for under $4 :P

@Fashion Footing- Thank U, I had fun with this one :)

LOL, I like Revlon better. Great post. I bought this yesterday and on every blog I see doing the comparisons, Revlon wins all the time, ESPECIALLY for the price paid for a Lippman polish. Very gorgeous color

Cristina said...

Interesting comparison, expecially for us italian ladies who can't buy Lippmann's polishes. But we have Revlon!!! ;))

Biba said...

LOL! Great post! I'd pick Revlon though.

serendipitously.create said...

I'm a little stunned that I think I prefer the Revelon!

Megan Harmeyer said...

I think I like the Revlon better than the DL - more bang for your buck! Thanks for the comparison - I'm going to have to keep my eyes open for this one. :)

Maria said...

oh this post is so funny! it totally made me laugh LOL .!!
i've been waiting for someone to compare these both since i kept hearing it was a dupe.. i def prefer Revlon! ..*runs to target*

thanks for the great post!

Maria said...

OMG!!! I was so excited to see this post! I literally JUST bought the Revlon one today and had no idea it was even a dupe for anything I just liked the glitter polishes and I plan to get the others, but now I'm even more excited I bought it!!! Ahhh! So excited!

Jacki said...

hahahahah! this was the funniest post i've read in a long time. thanks for the awesome comparison!

beachgal said...

I call it even match and which ever you can get your hands on it needs to be in your stash. I see the Revlon going on the secondary market for almost as much as the DL!!! Thus far this collection from Revlon has not shown up in my town and good chance it won't. We don't get all the Revlon campaigns.

JQ said...

YAY! I absolutely want to get my mitts on this Revlon!

Jill said...

I'm so glad I didn't buy Bad Romance! I was about to!

Katie said...

Love the writing style of this post! I think I prefer the Revlon. I'm glad I wanted until a dupe came out!

sarah said...

hahaha this post cracked me up! thanks for the comparison and boxing humor ;)

Sarah said...

I've really been wanting to see these side by side. I have on Facets of Fushia right now and wondered how close they actually were. Thanks for the post and the funny commentary.

SugarSpiceStyle said...

This is fabulous! I'm tweeting it! I love your commentary, and how you switched up which polish was on which nails; it let me see if I could tell a difference! I think I like the DL, bc of the darker base and contrast, as u so astutely noticed, but due to the $ factor, I think I'd have to go w Revlon! FAB post and very fun!!! :)

Jackie S. said...

I'm so happy everyone enjoyed the post as much as I did. Thank U for commenting :)

KayJay said...

lol!!! Love the boxing metaphors! I just picked FOF up from Target last week and I'm looking forward to trying it. Thanks for the comparison because I cant afford to splurge on DL right now.

Southern Fried Glamour said...

Great review - I love the hilarious commentary!!

meg said...

Hilarious post! I'll be on the lookout for that killer Revlon!

Sarah said...

PinkPop said...

Dee said...
