Maybelline Color Show - Brocades Collection

Thursday, 14 November 2013

Hello!  I've got some more sparkle for you today, this time it's the Maybelline Color Show Brocades Collection that was recently launched in the UK.  I see over the pond in the US there are 10 colours in this collection, so I'm hoping some more of them make there way over here soon.

So, there are four polishes available at the moment, Gilded Rose, Silver Swank, Crushed Crimson and Black N Mirrors.

So, starting with Gilded Rose.  This is a clear base packed with tiny bits of gold glitter, and larger pieces of pink glitter.  Oh my goodness, this is so pretty!  And sparkley!  This is three coats of Gilded Rose.

Next we have Crushed Crimson.  This is a pink base packed with pink glitters.  Again, this is so pretty!   This is three coats of Crushed Crimson.

Next we have Black N Mirrors.  This is a clear base packed black, gold and silver glitters.  I wasn't so keen on this one, as the application was a bit gloopy.  This might be better over a black base.  This is three coats of Black N Mirrors.

Finally we have Silver Swank.  This actually has quite a lot of gold tones to it, with large chunky silver glitter.  Again, very sparkly.  This is three coats of Silver Swank.

So, what do you think?  I think this is a lovely collection, and I'm hoping they do release more of the colours over in the UK.  Crushed Crimson and Gilded Rose are definitely my favourite!

  3. Oh I didn't know that there were 10 in total :O They released 4 in Germany too but different ones and it seems they have different names here as well =/ Glided Rose is Knitted Gold, Black N Mirrors is Woven Skyline and Ruby Refined is Rosy Rosettes in Germany and we have Amethyst Couture as well but it's Saphire Stich here. Strange.
    Hope they will release the rest as soon as possible, I really love this collection! ^.^

  4. Is it just me or does Gilded Rose look a lot like A England's She Walks In Beauty?

    1. Oh yes! It's very similar. I think Gilded Rose has a much thicker formula though, so you probably wouldn't be able to layer it as well as you can with She Walks In Beauty. x

  5. Bought some of this, rose, yesterday. Love the colour but it started to chip within hours and is now mega chipped,less than 24 hours wear. Not impressed and wont be buying again or recommending and got loads of compliments re colour.

    1. Which one was it you bought? Perhaps a bit of top coat would help on the chipping? Also, do you ever try "wrapping" the polish slightly over your tips? That can help, also a basecoat can help. I know that some polishes chip more on some people than others though, which is a shame!

    2. Where, may I ask, did you order them?? I have looked EVERYWHERE around here in Oklahoma, and even had some friends in Kansas looking. NOTHING. I am sad and have been looking for weeks for these. Can't even find them online. Somebody has to have access to them somewhere that can help me. =\
