Revlon Electric Chrome Collection (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) Swatches and Review


Revlon Electric Chrome Collection (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) Swatches and Review

Spotted the new Revlon Electric Chrome collection today at Walgreens. This limited edition collection is a moive tie-in with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 , which is why all the caps have the cute spiderweb pattern! The display claims these shades has "glowing glass pearls", and they're right! All these shades have a slightly duochrome glass-fleck finish, and they're so gorgeous. I'm glad I picked them all up. 

***Edited 3/19 to add some swatch wheel pics that show what these shades look like layered over black! Check the end of this post!***

Let's move onto swatches, shall we?

Revlon Gwen's Crush swatch

Revlon Gwen's Crush is a gorgeous glass fleck that shifts from fuchsia to violet in certain lights. So pretty and sparkly! Two coats.







Revlon Spidey Sense swatch

Revlon Spidey Sense, the least duochrome of the bunch, is a red shade that leans a bit pink and had slight gold shimmer. Two coats.





Revlon 1000 Volts swatch

Revlon 1000 Volts is a gold glass fleck duchrome that can shift from almost olive in tone to a peachy copper. Three coats.






Revlon Super-Powered swatch

Revlon Super-Powered is a deep royal blue shade that promises some purple shimmer in the bottle, but it's not very evident on the nail. Still has a lot of depth, though! Two coats.







Revlon Electrified Web swatch

Revlon Electrified Web is a orange shade that shifts from a pinky copper to gold. Three coats.







Revlon I'm Electro swatch

Revlon I'm Electro has the most obvious shift. This is a peacock blue shade that can shift to purple. This one is a bit hazy/dusty in comparison to the rest. It's probably my fave of the collection! Three coats.








Amy (of Sloth Nails) suggested I swatch these over black to pull out the duochrome a bit more, and I'm glad she did! Some of the lighter shades really glow!

  4. Ahhh I love these lids! I'm really curious how these will look over black polish, since the colorshift is so subtle in these swatches.

  5. I just found this collection at Rite Aid today, and you're swatches are beautiful. I was only interested in the purple and red, but the purple looks like an Orly I have. So glad I got the red though. Great idea to put them over black.

  6. Duochrome? Glass fleck? Wow. Gwen's Crush, 1000 Volts, and Electrified Web are calling me. I have a lot of Revlon polish and love the quality. Oh great. There goes my (current) no-buy.
