My Take on Revlon Icy Violet:
Icy Violet is a nice shade from purple family. It has micro glitters in blue color. I think they are really very fine and camera would not be able to capture their effect. Still I have tried to take pictures in different lights and location. Like day light, evening time, lamp light and tube light :D Let’s see how they all look. Enjoy NOTD’s pictures.

 This is a cool deep purple with blue iridescent shimmer that flashes in the light. :) After 5 days of application. It is still intact without any signs of chipping.
 Look from a distance :)
You would love it if you are looking a purple shade. The consistency is also pretty decent and it glides really smooth. 2 coats of it and you are good to go!
§  Very smooth to glide and apply.
§  Highly pigmented.
§  No chipping before a week.
§  Not very shiny.
§  Very good coverage with two coats
§  Good lasting power 
§  Easy to remove with acetone/remover.


§  Might require a top coat for very high shine.
Will I Repurchase Revlon Icy Violet:
May be, I will try the shades that I don’t have.
