Rescue Beauty Lounge Pause and Turn It Around Swatches and Review

Rescue Beauty Lounge Pause and Turn It Around

Rescue Beauty Lounge Pause and Turn It Around are two new shades from the Emoting Me collection for 2013.

This collection features seven new shades, but these were the two that really stood out to me as the most interesting and unique, so I snatched them up in the pre-sale.

The formula is pretty good, as with most RBL shades. Two to three thin coats works best for great results.

Pause is a bright violet with fuchsia and blue shimmer. I really love this shade because it’s incredibly intense and rich. It’s bright but also deep. I only needed two coats for perfect coverage. Work with thinner coats as it tends to want to slightly streak if it gets too thick.

Turn It Around is a really complex mossy green with heavy gold, copper and pink shimmer. It applied really thin and a bit watery but after the second coat you see where it’s going. I used three thin coats here and it looks rich and amazing. I can’t think of another shade like it, so shimmery and gorgeous.

Overall: Both of these are amazing shades. I think Turn It Around is the most unique but Pause is a true stunner. Really great formula overall. Of course I wish these were half the price, but what can we do?

Availability: Rescue Beauty Lounge the end of April.

Pricing: $20.00 for .4 oz.

See anything here you will be picking up or you picked up during the pre-sale?

    Turn It Around is definitely quite unique. I haven’t seen a similar shade either. Although I don’t think I have a thing for murky colours. x

    I picked up Turn It Around and Be Humble. I was undecided on Pause, though, since I’m not sure how unique it is, and at that price point…. Do you have any plans to do some comparisons with Pause?

    • April 23, 2013

      I hadn’t planned on a post but if you know of any shades you want me to compare to, let me know and I’ll answer!

    Turn It Around looks a lot less green than I was expecting.

    I was good and resisted this pre-order altogether – not sure if I’ll avoid buying at least some of this collection in the future though!

    I got both of those, as well as Thank You and Smile (and Recycle to bump it up for free shipping) during the pre-sale. I’m thinking of trying Turn It Around over Recycle, to darken the green a bit, so it looks like more like Fashion Polish’s swatch.

    I love Turn it Around – so gorgeous and definitely unique!

    Ugh, gorgeous! Both of these look amazing, too bad they are so expensive and I’m too cheap to spend that on polish *sigh*.

    Turn it Around WILL be mine! It’s like what I was hoping Halcyon would turn out to be, but when it was released it just lacked the intensity that Turn it Around has. I love it.

  • April 23, 2013

    Wow, yeah Turn it Around definitely gets points for creativity… can’t think of anything I’ve seen like it either

  • April 23, 2013

    I really love both of these – and they are very different from most of the polish I already have!

    Gorgeous colours ! Vibrant and unique I think.

    I love both the colors but the price is too expensive for 3 coaters. $15.00 maybe, but $20.00, no way.

  • April 23, 2013

    Turn it around is super unique! Cool!

    Turn It Around is so pretty! RBL never ceases to amaze me.

    Pause really is a stunner! I like Turn It Around but I would see myself wearing Pause more often.

    Pause is absolutly gorgeous, but for the price, I can’t say I’d get it. I’ll have to pass on these. :(

    These colors are gorgeous and I love RBL polishes; but I just can’t stomach the price tag. The only ones I have are from when she used to do the 50% off sales. At least I can drool over pics online.

    Turn it Around reminds me of one of the OPI holiday time releases – drawing a blank on the name right now – maybe one from the Muppets collection – see OPI…you need to put back your holiday collections and stop doing the movie tie ins for holiday – I don’t recall the movie ones and yet I can tell you pretty much every name of every OPI holiday polish and the collection name – they were so memorable and hands down the best collection releases of the yr – I would wait in anticipation all yr for them o come out….even the yrs I was on polish over load and put myself on restrictive buying that never included OPI holiday collections. Anyhow there was a mossy green/brown/golden one with some pink/fuchsia shimmer in it that this one reminds me of. I am always a sucker for purples with red or fuchsia and/or teal blue shimmer specks – that’s just a winner combo in my book – but agree – I think the more unique one here from RBL is the mossy one – but gads I rarely buy RBL anymore due to the price – it’s just too high for me now days…and I bought RBL for a long time. They lost me when they went over $18/bottle even when they have some to die for shades like some of their Blogger shade releases – I just have too many polishes in my collection now and when I buy it’s got to be an impulse buy or something that wows me – but with RLB often it’s a wow in a phot and when I get it I am less wowed in person and sad I spent the $ and postage on top of the price tag.

    I have like a thousand purples already but I really love the looks of that one!
