Revlon Smoky Canvas

Smoky Canvas is part of Revlon's Expressionist LE line and is a putty grey creme.  I had a rather unusual problem with application on this one.

The first coat went on a little bit streaky but was manageable.  The second was extremely streaky and the more I tried to even it out the worse it got.  I'm not sure if I didn't let the first coat dry completely enough or it was a formula issue.  I think I ended up using 3 coats of this one to get it opaque and even.  Be sure to allow extra drying time in between coats.

The color is a nice neutral, work-appropriate grey.  It just didn't look good on my skin tone.  Maybe it leans a little too yellow for me.  The top coat disguised a lot of my application issues and made this a wearable mani for me.  Maybe some stamping would help me like it more.

  1. Hmmm, if the application was kind of bad, I think I'll stay away from this one.

    That sucks about the formula. Maybe use it for stamping? ♥
