Revlon Parfumerie Canada vs. US

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

So I went and bought 2 shades of Revlon Parfumerie nail polish last night - Powder Puff and Autumn Spice :)

This line came out in the US first. After the first batch of 16 shades, another 3 followed (noted with *) and 5 are coming soon (noted with **). 24 shades in total eventually, all permanent, divided into 3 scent groups:

- Fruits & Florals: African Tea Rose, Apricot Nectar, China Flower, Ginger Melon*, Lime Basil*, Orange Blossom**, Pink Pineapple and Wild Violets

- Sweets & Spices: Autumn Spice, Balsam Fir**, Bordeaux, Chocolate Truffle*, Espresso**, Italian Leather, Moonlit Woods and Spun Sugar

- Freshes: Beachy, Fresh Linen, Lavender Soap, Powder Puff**, Sunlit Grass, Surf Spray, Tropical Rain** and Wintermint.

In Canada, there are only 16 shades in total, and they are all LIMITED EDITION, as noted on the display. I will update with links to NOTDs as soon as I do them.

First tier, from L-R: Fresh Linen, Powder Puff, African Tea Rose, Ginger Melon, China Flower, Bordeaux, Autumn Spice, Beachy, Spun Sugar and Italian Leather.

Second tier: Moonlit Woods, Surf Spray, Wintermint, Balsam Fir, Wild Violet and Espresso.

So we miss out on 8 shades - Apricot Nectar, Chocolate Truffle, Lavender Soap, Lime Basil, Orange Blossoms, Pink Pineapple, Sunlit Grass and Tropical Rain.

There are only 2 bottles of each shade on the display (pic was taken by Makemeoverande, used with permission), so if you are Canadian, you'd better get to it before they disappear!

Update (May 2014): According to Beauty Geeks, the Spring 2014 collection (LE) is out now, with 7 of the 8 shades that we missed (except Chocolate Truffle) plus the return of Ginger Melon. I actually spot a display back in March but it disappeared the week after, so I guess they are in a full release now.

    1. I actually took advantage of the SDM BOGO - thanks you for mentioning the sale in this post! They were also on sale for 5.99 so I saved even more. I got Bordeaux and Wild Violets.

  2. I bought them all. I am a sucker for scented polish and anything limited edition. It is sad it won't be permanent here yet, but I wonder if in a couple of years, they will make them permanent. I can find all of the previous Revlon scented polishes at nearly every SDM near me. Thanks for filling us in on the scoop!

    1. Lol in a couple years, it might not be a thing anymore, but I do hope they will be brought back

  3. They're also regular price $6.99 (if I'm remembering correctly) at Rexall, which is where I first saw them (they seem to get a lot of limited edition/new drugstore collections before everyone else, at least here in Toronto). But yeah, I'm disappointed (though also not surprised) that they're limited edition here AND we're not getting all of the scents.

    1. Rexall sounds like a good place to shop :) I'm disappointed to but nothing we can do, sadly

  4. I grabbed one of these from Walmart (in Vancouver) for $5.96. I ended up really liking it, so I'm hoping to pick up one or two more before they're gone!
