Maybelline Brocades in Gilded Rose


Maybelline’s holiday collection, the Brocades, is amazingly gorgeous! I cannot resist sparkles, but only ended up with a couple of polishes from this collection so far, including this one: Gilded Rose. This shade has gold shimmer and metallic rose shimmer. I thought it applied nicely and wasn’t too chunky. You just never know with glitter.

This is two coats over Essie Topless and Barefoot, which is a pale nude pink. I am going to try Gilded Rose over some darker shades to see how that looks, but I love it over lighter colors so far! This could easily be layered to opacity as well, but I already had the Essie polish on!

Maybelline is one brand where their limited edition stuff is consistently better than the main line. Kind of frustrating, but kind of exciting too.

Did you get anything from this collection yet?
