Deborah Lippmann - Bad Romance

Posted by Erin on 8/30/11. Filed under: , , ,

Here is my final post in the Deborah Lippmann series that I've been doing for the last week or 2. This is Bad Romance, which is obviously named after the Lady Gaga song. I'm not a Gaga fan at all but that wasn't going to deter me from trying out this crazy, vampy, glittery jewel.



Color:
Bad Romance is a black jelly base with a hearty dose of both large and small pieces of magenta glitter suspended in it. Vampy and glittery and awesome beyond words.


Application:
I had no problems with this at all. It was completely opaque in 2 coats, was easy to control, and the glitter pieces were very easy to distribute evenly.


Downside:
None. Even the steep price tag is not considered a "downside" this time. It was worth every penny.


Bottom Line:
Bad Romance is badass. You need this right now. Forget that it costs $18. It doesn't matter. If you love vampy colors or glitter or anything that is kind of edgy and fun, then you need this immediately.



I will add though, that if you're really that tight on cash and you just can't part with the $18, then you might want to try out Wet n Wild's Night Prowl or China Glaze's Mummy May I. Neither are what I would call dupes, but they do consist of black jelly with fuschia glitter. The main difference between them and Bad Romance is that they do not contain any of the large pieces of glitter that make Bad Romance as awesome as it is.

    There's always the Revlon dupe - Facets of Fuchsia. It looks super close and the hex glitter makes it awesome.
