Maybelline Color Show Buried Treasure 221 Review

By Monday, June 22, 2015 , , , , , , , , ,

This shade in particular is not a very summery shade but the weather has been so gloomy and rainy that it feels like winters already. Weather update aside I picked up this shade long ago and never put it to test until last week when weather was messing up with all my outdoor plans and all those summery shades didn’t make me feel like its summer. I went ahead and tried this on. Let see how it fares out.

Product Description:
Make a bold style statement with Maybelline New York’s Color Show nail color range. With trendy, super stylish shades, these nail colors add oodles of attitude to your overall look. Presenting 40 attractive shades, the Maybelline Color Show Range let’s you mix, match and experiment with color!
Here’s why you’ll love it:
• Nail colors have a gel-based formula for increased staying power
• Is chip-resistant and comes with an easy-flow brush
• Available in 40 different shades

Price: 4 USD

Performance: It is a duo chrome metallic shade. It is a dusty brown with hues of purple and golden shimmer. I think it is a perfect shade for Autumn/Winter season. The brush is pretty standard circular and cut straight from top. Texture wise they are smooth and glide easily on the nails. They don’t streak which is a plus and they have nice glossy finish. It goes opaque in single quote but I still go for two coats for that perfect look. Staying power though is pretty average 3-4 days. It started chipping third day onwards. With a nice base and top coat wear time definitely improves and you can easily get a 1 -2 days of extra wear out of it.

The Good:
  • Affordable
  • Nice shade range
  • Nicely pigmented
  • Nice Formula
  • Easily Available
The Bad:
  • Staying power

I have never picked up a shade from this range before and this is my first. I quite like this shade and the way it looks. Staying power is not that good but for what its worth I am ok with that and looking forward to try some other shades from this range.
