Revlon Sultry

MRevlon Sultry The Daily Varnishy local CVS had Valentine’s Day stuff out before Christmas (seriously) but now that it’s the middle of January I’m ready to face the fact that Valentine’s Day is around the corner.

I’ve always really liked Valentine’s Day. So, of course, I’ve already made plans. The boy and I are going the Charlotte Symphony for their (now) annual A Symphonic Valentine show. But, what I really get excited about for Valentine’s Day is all the fun makeup displays!

I was on the hunt for new lipstick and found myself in the Revlon section of CVS. Revlon always has the best Valentine’s Day displays. The 2016 Fall In Love display is no exception. It seemed like most of the things on the display were from the permanent line (the lipstick I picked up, Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Softsilver Rose has been around a good while). But, you see, here’s the thing. Revlon was buy one get one half off and Sultry just looked so pretty in the bottle so…

Sultry is a bit of a chameleon. When I picked it up in the store I thought I was buying a blue nail polish. When I got it home it looked purple! Depending on the light Sultry is a purple/blue polish with flaky small pink glitter.

The formula is a bit thin as is the nature of polishes with this finish. I used 3 coats in my swatches.

I’m not sure how this polish has flown under my radar for so long. I love it! In fact, I can’t seem to stop wearing it. And y’all…Sultry is the sun is all kinds of crazy sparkling goodness.

The good news is that since Sultry is part of Revlon’s permanent line it is super easy to find. You can even pick it up online at or on Amazon.

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump. I included a MACRO shot so you can see the shimmer as well as a photo I took in the sun!

  1. Love this one, I actually bought a Milani that was out at the time that is basically the same color, but bought Sultry anyway (while I wearing the Milani), so I could see how “dupey” they were, which was a lot! But gorgeous, so who cares!?

  2. Not bad for a mainstream polish!!! I normally give the Revlon display a miss as the prces in the UK are fairly high but I want this one.

  3. I have this polish. I picked it up at RiteAid a few months back. I love it. I think it’s gorgeous. I couldn’t stop lookng at it when I wore it.

What do you think?
