I have been not so casually stalking Revlon’s new duo line ” Moon Candy” since I first got word of its existence. I made a vow it would be mine..well okay a few of them. Two of the shades I had my eye on got withdrawn & won’t be released for awhile now (RUDE!) but I did pick up the 2 I wanted. Today I’m showing you Revlon’s Moon Candy Duo in Milky Way.
Now, this will be the first Revlon duo I’ve ever featured. They’ve come out with quite a few & although some have caught my eye I’ve steered clear. They’re around $8 each & only have .26 fl oz. Plus I had heard the brushes left a lot to be desired. But I caved. Its a flakie, you guys know I have an obsession. I don’t plan to pick up more at this time because I do have so many flakies…but honestly these aren’t my traditional flakies. They are thicker, more like glitter, & Milky Way is especially more like shards of glass. I don’t love or hate this but this means they don’t curve to my nail as well. Plus, they are more likely to snag things without a good top coat. I also had to really place these shards. Boo.
Revlon Moon Candy Duo in Milky Way: Side one is a lovely charcoal gray cream. One coat of perfection. I seriously love this shade. Side 2 is a holo flakie suspended in a clear base. As I said, these are more like shards of glass rather than traditional flakies & greatly vary in size & shape. These need to be coaxed & placed more as well.
All in all, I am glad I picked this one up. Its like nothing else I currently own & I actually LIKE the cream shade in both application & shade. The shards are gorgeous & can be rather large although they vary. You can see the rainbow it throws off on the palm of my hand in the first 2 pictures. Talk about a showstopper! In the sun or in the shade, this is one to get you noticed. This also had a decent dry time which was an unexpected positive. I DO recommend a top coat because some of these are rather sharp.
What do you think? Have you picked up a Revlon Moon Candy Duo? I grabbed this at Walgreens on its own display!
