Maybelline Colorshow Glittermania -Red Carpet

Hey everyone,

Maybelline launched its Colorshow Glittermania last month and all the social networking sites and beauty blogs went crazy. I must give it to Maybelline -their promotional team is one of the best-superb , very persuasive and leaves no stones (sites, media) unturned. Since I was very impressed by their earlier Colorshow collection, I had to try their Glittermania range. Glittermania range has been launched in 8 pretty shades covering almost all the genre of colour spectrum.

I initially bought two shades

Red carpet (I am crazy about reds. They are my first love)
Pink champagne (It is the most talked about shade in this range)

Today I am going to review Red Carpet from Colorshow Glittermania range

My take on the product

Maybelline Colorshow collection was super duper hit mainly because of its good texture, super drying speed, awesome color range and most particularly very much affordable price. Now Maybelline has launched further variant in its Colorshow range i.e. their very much promoted Glittermania range. The range has been promoted and publicized with grandeur. Maybelline's promotional terms ensures that their all the new launches should take the market by storm and they do always succeed in it. 

Well, I will be talking about the Red Carpet from this range. The nailpaint comes in a medium size transparent cylindrical bottle with a black cap-packaging much similar to their earlier Colorshow range. The applicator-brush is of a good dense quality and gives a good swipe over the nails. 

About the red carpet color shade, its a intense red color studded with gold shimmer which are very much visible in a bottle. However these gold shimmers on application do not translate to the nails and what you get is the red shade studded with red shimmer particles. The nailpaint as it claims has a sand grain texture with a matte shimmer. It can be easily used in your day to day wear collection. And with the top coat applied, it can very well be flaunted in the parties. 

I really like the texture of the nailpaint and the color it imparts is just beautiful. With one swatch its gives you a shimmery red colour with pink undertone which turns into a deeper red in the second swatch. The sand grain texture is of a real good quality much inline with its counterparts such as Sally Hansen and ColorBar and has a matte finish. However I feel that shimmer is too mattified and a little gloss would have made the nailpaints much more lovelier. But then as I said I really loved the colour and when first applied I just couldn't resist looking at my nails over and again. They were looking so prim and elegant and freshly manicured. These nailpaints just like their earlier Colorshow range are super quick to dry. I have not yet came across any other branded nailpaint which dries as quickly as Colorshow beauties. And with the Glitter range you always have the added advantage of minor imperfections being not easily visible to the naked eyes. 

About the chipping part, I was under the impression that glitter nailpaints chip slower then the regular ones. But then I saw some minor tip breakage after 3 days of application and proper chipping stared after 4-5 days. However u may keep your nailpaint intact for longer duration by applying a top coat over it . 

These nailpaints are available for Rs. 125/- each. Trust Maybelline to always come out with such fantastic range in such affordable prices. I adore Maybelline for this. They are the cheapest in the  range with such fine texture. 

Overall, I am a true fan of this Maybelline Glittermania range and loved everything about it. Just wish that these nailpaints would have been a little glossier. However with  this texture and this price, they are truly a to be owned material. 

My rating for it : 4.5/5

I will soon be sharing my review on Pink Champagne from this range. And I have been told that their Dazzling Diva ( silver shade) and All that Glitters (golden one) are selling like hotcakes. So I cannot wait to lay my hands on them. 

So have you guys tried this new Maybelline Colorshow Glittermania range ? Which one is your favourite form this range ? Would love to hear all about it.

Till then,
