Rescue Beauty Lounge - Aqua Lily

Finally tried one of my RBL's! Aqua Lily from the fan collection. It's a gorgeous turquoise w. subtle pink shimmer. I did not find that it was invisible, but definitely a hidden shimmer. In the sun I had no problems seeing it. In dim light I could still see it but it appeared more like a pretty pink sheen, if that makes sense. Loved it in all lighting though :) Worth $20? Idk, I feel I have similar shades (Jesse's Girl Mermaid's Lagoon & ChG Custom Kicks come to mind.. neither are dupes though!) but I am happy I got this. The formula & wear are very nice.  *It IS coming back I've read!*


3 coats






PS. Thoughts on the new collection? I'm surprised to see a pretty cold response to it in general. I really like it.. though with the price hike (why?) & outrageous shipping I'm still debating if I will order any.

  1. This is a lovely color; I just don't think I can justify spending that much on a polish, especially when the lady who runs the RBL Facebook/blog is such a snob.... that really turns me off from the whole brand :-(

    1. Ji? She's pretty wild... says some rude sounding things so I can understand that! Personally I feel like she has good intentions and has a poor filter / poor communication skills lol

  4. love the color, but can't handle the price or the drama really. i'm in love with the dark green in the new collection, so i MIGHT have to fork over the $20, but i'm gonna wait on that for a little haha

  6. RBL is my favorite brand. I bought all 7 of the new collection. Her polish formula is perfection. For me, its worth the price.

  8. You're pics of Aqua Lily are beautiful! I'm a sucker for turquoise and love both of the others that you mentioned above, but definitely wanted one in the RBL brand. I had fun making it with Ji and am still pinching myself how fast it sold out and that it's coming back :) thanks for the honest review! -KDK
