No, I’m not talking about today’s Black Friday stampedes. I’m skipping that brouhaha again this year and am more into Small Business Saturday and CyberMonday.
Untamed is a relatively new polish from Revlon and comes in the old style “bell” bottle. It’s rather complex — at first I thought it was brown but found it to be a blackened base full of gold and dark pink shimmer, along with some larger, irregularly-shaped pieces of gold glitter. Together, those colors give a plummy bronze look.
My bottle of Untamed had horribly thick polish that was very difficult to use. Since I’ve never had a problem with Revlon in the years I’ve been using the brand, I suspect my bottle was opened in the store and not closed properly. Some thinning drops, which I always keep on hand, will fix that.
I picked up Untamed at Ulta, where it was $5.99 but there was either a BOGO sale or BOGOHO sale going on so I got it for less. Revlon is of course widely available at big box stores, drugstores, and probably your local bar ‘n’ grill; it’s that popular. The bottle is full-sized and contains 0.5 oz/14.7 mL.
Two coats covered very well although I had the thickness problem mentioned above. Under very gloomy outdoor light and then with the flash:
(Sorry that’s blurry; the light really is dim today.)
You can see that with the flash it appears darker and more brown compared to the daylight view, where I see more pink and gold.
I decided to mattify Untamed for comparison. Here it is on my ring and little fingers (two right-most) with two coats of Butter London Matte Top Coat.
I think I like it mattified better. Gives it kind of a leather look, in a good way.
Have a great weekend!
