Aqua Gold and Facets of Fuschia

Last week (prior to starting Project10Pan) I picked up a couple of items while in Boots...

'Facets of Fuchsia' by Revlon and Aqua Gold no.92 Dazzle Dust by Barry M.








Aqua Gold is a gorgeous shade of green/blue with gold flecks throughout. I've never been a fan of colourful eyeshadow, but this shade is very multi-tonal and adds 'something special'! I don't feel that the picture below really picks up the colour adequately - in real life it's brighter and much more beautiful!




I placed Barry M's Silver Black no.91 on the inner half of my lid and then added Aqua Gold on the other 2/3rds of my eyelid. In the crease I used Urban Decay's Gunmetal from the Naked palette and then as a highlight I used Barry M's Gold Iridescent no.27.



While I love Aqua Gold, I'm not entirely sold on Facets of Fuchsia. It is really pretty when applied, but it takes 3 coats to get a nice opaque cover and because of that it takes ages to dry. It is also a pain to get off, taking over ten minutes - glitter always makes polish removal difficult, but this was particularly hard! Again, the picture below doesn't show the colour as it is - the 3D glitter is fuchsia not purple - I may need to use a different camera to photograph.




Have you tried Facets of Fuchsia or Aqua Gold? What do you think of 3D nail polish?

  5. Wow that nail varnish is very cool, glitter is always a biiiitch to get off though! end up peeling it off, if you apply a couple of base coats first it's loads easier to do that :)

  7. It's a pretty shade but since it will take me 10 minutes to take it all off, I don't think I'll buy a bottle. Thanks for letting us know.
