Maybelline Glitter Mania Nail Polish, Matinee Mauve, 605: Review, Swatches

Hey guys!

After a long time, I am back to reviewing a nail paint today! This one is from Maybelline’s Glitter Mania range and the shade name is Matinee Mauve. So let’s jump right into the detailed review and see how was my experience with this one. Keep reading…

What The Brand Claims: These sparkling nail colors deliver a 3D shimmering effect, adding oodles of style to your tips. They also have a unique sand-textured effect that looks and feels great on your nails. With 8 glittering nail color shades to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect shade for every mood.

Packaging: Like most Maybelline nail polishes, this one too comes in a cute little glass bottle that is sturdy and travel friendly. The shade name along with the shade number is mentioned at the top of the bottle, while other details such as MRP and manufacturing date are specified at the side of the bottle cap. The brush is also convenient-to-use and picks up a good amount of product.

Shade: ‘Matinee Mauve’ is a pinkish-purple shade that is loaded with glitter and shimmers. It looks absolutely gorgeous on the nails and is a good pick for the festive season.

My Experience With The Product: Maybelline Glitter Mania Nail Polish, Matinee Mauve has a really smooth formula, that is just perfect. It is neither too thick nor too runny! It is easy to apply and effortlessly spreads on the nails. The shade has excellent pigmentation and goes opaque in just 2 swipes. The glitter particles are very finely milled into the polish and do not feel harsh or gritty at all.

It dries down quickly and settles into a stunning glitter matte finish; that looks lovely on the nails. It has a good lasting power and easily stays on for 5-6 days. But like most nail polishes, it does start to chip off from the tips if you are into everyday kitchen chores. Another reason why I love this formula is because unlike most glitter polishes, this one is quick and easy to remove. It does not create any mess and comes off easily with a good polish remover. The product is reasonably priced and can be easily found at Maybelline counters as well as online.
