NOTD: Revlon Balsam Fir

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

It might be a little extreme to call something a "favourite of all time", but I am gonna do it today, because it is a fact.

This is my favourite scented polish of all time - Revlon Balsam Fir from the Parfumerie line, on many levels!

The colour is a beautiful and deep forest green, pretty unique in my stash. It is also a one coater!

The scent is that delicious fragrance of the evergreen! I always have a soft spot for scented polishes, and one with my favorite scent is just "toxic" to me, I could wear it all year round.

Mind you, the scent is not overwhelming (nor artificial), even with a top coat, and slowly fades with time, which in this case is a bad thing for me lol. I want Balsam Fir scent to last forever, bringing my hand to my nose like every 5 minutes while I wear it.

Now if you remember my Revlon Parfumerie Canada vs US post, the line is permanent in the US but LE in Canada. I am sorry if you missed out on the line, or on this particular shade. Add Balsam Fir to your US shopping list if you are not sensitive to scents. And if you own it, try it now!

The random glitter accent is Finger Paints Crystal Springs from the Pastel Rain collection this Spring. When I saw the display at Sally, I thought the shades were pretty but only reached for the glitters and passed on the cremes. Typical me huh?

Good news: new shades of Parfumerie are coming out in Canada as we speak to complete the range. We are still one shade short from the line in the US, but who's counting right? :) For details, please check the post I linked above, as I have added some update near the end.

Have a great day, and enjoy the sunshine out there. It was still chilly early morning but I am just glad to see the sun, a rare occasion it is this year.
