Uncommon Beauty - Revlon Street Wear

My paternal Grandmother had a way of talking about someone that made you stop and wonder if she was complimenting them or insulting them. 9 times out of 10 she was insulting them. My favorite was when she called someone an uncommon beauty when she really meant they were ugly. Granny wasn't the kindest person but she always had cookies when I went to visit her. Cookies make up for a lot of negatives in my book.

I remember buying Street Wear polish when it first came out. In fact I still have two of the bottles I bought years ago. They had some amazing colors and some amazingly ugly colors. Revlon was a trailblazer with this line.

I'm showing you three that I like and that I find to be a bit more unattractive than most. There is a reason I am showing these three which I will post about next. Remember to click for a larger photo.

Taxi is a yellow that leans more toward the marigold family. It has slight golden shimmer and is the only yellow that I love and actually enjoy wearing. It takes about four coats to get it even but it's worth it.







Burnt reminds me of butterscotch pudding. It's smooth and only needs two coats. It dries with this amazing shine.







Grass Stain is a grass green with a golden/green shimmer. I love greens and this one is a favorite of mine.







Some uncommon beauty.

I know! I love and hate that Revlon did that. Like Stain and Sstain or the two versions of the same color like Toad.

oooh grass stain is even prettier than i remember from previous swatch ogling - butterscotch pudding sounds good right now - taxi reminds me a bit of the SH forsythia color i have been lemming - i gave away the yellows i had because i thought they looked bad on me even tho yellow is my favorite color after green then i saw BB daisy dweller which i will get soon i say soon anyhow daisy dweller needs to go over a yellow because it is a sheer sparkly and i am plotting the best yellow for it

I love taxi. I pretty much never wear yellows but it looks so bright and fresh, like daffodils or something. Lovely!
