Revlon By Marchesa 3D Jewel Appliques - The Sequel

 LOOK WHAT I FOUND! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I wrote extensively on how I went to almost every drugstore in the DMV to look for more packs of these. Almost ALWAYS cleared out and NEVER had these two styles - 24K Brocade and Silk Rosette. I'm astounded that I found these because I feel like I used up enough luck to last me the next 5 years on the DvF dress. Again, I wasn't even looking for these and just stumbled upon them because I turned down the wrong aisle in an Ulta on Long Island while searching for a replacement brow eyeshadow. There were probably 12 packs in the store but I restrained myself and only picked up four - 2 Silk Rosette, 1 24K Brocade and 1 Evening Garnet. I did buy all the Silk Rosettes and 24K Brocades because they were both even more stunning in real life than they were in pictures which didn't seem at all possible. I even got them on some kind of Revlon Black Friday sale in Ulta and I literally could not tell you how much I saved on them because I was just drunk off finding them and not paying attention at the register. Maybe I didn't even get the sale and signed away my first born child for them without realizing it - STILL WORTH IT.

 Can you stand it? Look at that detail. That will be gorgeous over a cool toned nude polish or a silver.

This is now my hoard of Revlon by Marchesa strips. I don't know if I'll ever be able to bear to use any of them because I love them so much. Just the boxes themselves are visually orgasmic. I'm addicted to the image. I don't know if I'd use them if I had hundreds. I would probably just staple them to my wall and look at them everyday.

Now, I say this because about 3 people read this blog: the Ulta where I found these is one of my best kept beauty secrets. It somehow always has highly coveted, rare items that are sold out everywhere else. I found OPI Mad as a Hatter there a full year after its release and there were TWO of them. I still kick myself for not buying both because I could have sold the extra on eBay for five times the price. There's probably a bottle of Clarins 230 somewhere in the stock room. For any Long Islanders, I got you - it's the Ulta by the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove, next to the Pier 1. This is sacred information and I hope you use it wisely.
