Revlon Chroma Chameleon

Revlon Chroma Chameleon is a new limited edition collection which features eight duo and multi-chrome metallic shades.

I had my eyes peeled for these for awhile and finally spotted these five at a Rite Aid near me. They should be at Walgreens/Rite Aid and CVS (and possibly Meijer and Harmon, which we don’t have in the Bay Area).

The three I didn’t get were Aquamarine, Gold and Cobalt.

The formula with these was decent, not perfect. Since they are metallic they tend to be a little brush-stroke-y. Most were just two coats but two I used three.

Pink Quartz is a pink/gold shade. Ironically it looks like a rose gold to me more than the one actually named Rose Gold. Odd. Anyway the duochrome effect is rather subtle with this one. It’s a bit on the sheer side so I used three thin coats.

Rose Gold is a warm old-gold/bronze with flashes of green. Really it just looks gold/bronze for the most part. Subtle duochrome effect. This was two coats but my nails tips are showing so I could have used three.

Tanzanite is a royal purple that looks like it flashes gold in the bottle, but it doesn’t really translate onto the nail much. This was two coats.

Topaz is a vivid green which flashes a deeper green and slightly gold here and there. The gold is more apparent in the bottle than on the nail and you see some blue in the bottle as well. This was two coats and yes, I created a mess when I smudged it. Oops!

Amethyst is the only true multichrome here. It starts off as an amethyst purple and then flashes to grey and green under various lighting. I like this one and feel it was the best one. This was two coats.

Overall: Meh. I mean they look ok on the nail but I wasn’t blown away with the duochrome effect with most of them. Not loving the brush strokes either. I’ve definitely seen much better duochromes from other brands. I think the most interesting ones were Amethyst and Topaz. Also not loving the price for the amount you get!

Availability: Rite Aid, Walgreens, CVS, etc.

Pricing: $8-9.00 for 0.29 oz.

What do you think about these? Anything you found or want to find?
