Maybelline Colorshow Bright Matte Peppy Pink review
Maybelline Bright Matte collection comes in same packaging as the Colorshow range except that the bottle is frosted which looks chic. The shade name is stickered on the top, which looks a bit cheap. Other colorshow range has shade name engraved on the cap. The brush is short but okay, though I would have liked a broader brush for matte collection, as short/thin brush leads to streaking which is more prominent in matte finish.
Peppy Pink is a warm toned dark pink color with beautiful matte finish. The nailpolish is quite pigmented and one coat is sufficient to bring out the full color, still I have applied two coats in the swatches below. The matte effect lasts for 2 days and it turns to normal finish after that. Matte nailpolish tend to chip early and I started to see tip wear, especially on my right (dominant) hand starting next day itself. On left hand, it started a bit late. Since the brush is thin, it led to streaking. But interestingly, it became normal as the matte effect started to fade after few days. Also, the color starts to deepen as the matte effect fades.
This range has only 6 colors, all in the shades of red family. I would have loved to see a wider spectrum of colors in this range. Even though the name says ‘Bright’, the range does not have bright colors except one or two.
Overall this is an okay nailpolish and if you want to experiment with matte finish, this range is a good start. Matte nailpolish tend to chip fast so this is not a long wearing nailpolish. Also, the shade range is narrow and covers only orange, pink and red. It would have been nice if it covered more shades.
