No More War or Diarrhea Do Do?

I received RBL's No More War in the mail yesterday. As I opened the package, my 10 yr old daughter exclaimed "What's that one called? Diarrhea do do?" I couldn't stop laughing! Talk about saying the first thing that comes to your head. I know this color is a love it or hate it color - but um, really? I debated on sharing her sentiments, and in the end decided, it was just too funny not to share.

Now let me just say the first time around, I passed on this one. I just wasn't sure that this was one I could pull off. But then when it sold out - I was bummed that I would never know. So when it came back, I decided to order it. I can't say I was excitedly waiting the color. More than anything I was curious. So yup, I spent $25.50(includes shipping charge) to cure my curiosity! Crazy right? 

At first I wasn't sure what I felt. My first reaction was "yuck!" then after applying it and letting it dry, I thought "Hmmm, I kind of like this." Then I started looking through my Bazaar magazine and while flipping through the pages, I thought, "Wow I am REALLY liking this. It is so unique and different. And it is kind of edgy and cool." and then I came to an article showcasing the upcoming fall fashions and many are army green and I thought - "Well heck - I just might be ahead of the trend for once!" Ha!

This took two coats to be opaque. I was actually surprised by that. I was expecting the typical one coat coverage with this one. But it was actually quite streaky until I applied the second coat. Once I put the second coat on, it evened out and looked amazing. This is dry and without a topcoat. RBL delivered on top quality shine like you would expect.

But while I was really starting to dig this color, I just couldn't get out of my head that this would look amazing with a special topcoat! I never leave well enough alone! But let me just say that I think I got it just right this time. I topped it with Sally Hansen's Hidden Treasure. This combination is DIVINE! 
Look how it brings out the colors in Hidden Treasure! I think I just passed out! 

So what do you think? Are you one of the ones who loves No More War or are you in agreement with my daughter - it's Diarrhea do do? What about with the addition of Hidden Treasure? Are you not dying yet?


  1. I love this color, have been looking for an olive for ages but can't get it here

  2. I LOVE this colour. The weirder the better, as far as I'm concerned. And it looks amazing with your skintone!

  3. In this love/hate relationship, I'm more on the hate. It's a pretty color on you, but I know I couldn't pull it off. I do, however, like it much better with Hidden Treasure. Flakies make everything better!

  4. LMAO at Diarrhea do do!!! Hilarious!

    I think this color is gorgeous. I adore most greens though! I still can't bring myself to spend the $ on RBL though!

  5. I love this color!! I know if I was able to buy it it would be one my family would tell me to take off. Except my mom, I think she would like it. My stepdad would actually probably say something like what your daughter said.
    It looks great with the flakies, but I think I actually prefer it on its own!

  6. *sigh* You think you spent a lot? Canadian's have to pay $20 for shipping alone for just one bottle of RBL. *siiigh*
    I wonder if I'll ever get NMW.

  7. It is beautiful this marriage of 2 colors...

  8. Haha, diarrhea do do. I think it looks like straight up booboo.
