Maybelline Downtown Brown

Hi guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! I had a nice relaxing 3 day weekend, I wish every weekend was a 3 day weekend! I finally started watching Pretty Little Liars, I know I like 2 years late on this bandwagon haha!

Today I have a new Maybelline polish to show you guys called Downtown Brown. This is part of their Fall 2012 Limited Edition Collection that just recently started showing up around here. There were a few other polishes that were nice in the display but this was the only one unique to my stash so it's the only one I bought. Downtown Brown is a medium brown with a gorgeous green shimmer. I like this more in the bottle than on the nail but it's beautiful and definitely not like anything I already have! The formula was nice, not too thick or too thin and it ended up being more opaque than I expected. I used 2 coats for full opacity! Both photos below are in direct sunlight, the shimmer isn't in your face in low lighting but it I could still see it! This is much better in real life but not as amazing as I thought it was going to be based off of how it was in the bottle.

Maybelline is available at most drugstores, Target & Walmart etc... I've only seen this particular display in my area at Rite Aid so I'm not sure if it's out at other stores yet or if it will be!

  1. Too bad it was a little disappointing on the nail versus in the bottle. It does look awfully nice in the bottle and on your tips! I thought for sure Downtown Brown had to be close to one of the polishes last year, but thankfully you have pictures of that one (Purple Trend) and they aren't that similar after all.

  2. I got mine at Walgreens last weekend! Can't wait to try it!

  3. I made something exactly like this by mixing L'Oréal hip pigment in Intrepid into opi top coat. I call it Chocolate Vampire, cause its brown and sparkles in the sun xD

  4. I have this; found it at Walgreens. It's so pretty!

  5. just picked this up myself..can't wait to try it! looks amazing. i love seeing unique shades like this from the drugstore brands :)

  6. I want this!! Its a nice fall shade. Not like all the other boring browns.

  7. That's too funny, I always read your blog, and I just wanted to comment that I started watching Pretty Little Liars too through Netflix. It goes up to season 2, and I can't stop watching them! Beautiful swatches by the way, I am really looking forward to your swatches of China Glaze and OPI's holiday collections.

  8. I just got this last week at Meijer and a few others from the Color show line b/c they were on sale, I hope they measure up!

  9. It glows like the bottle if you sponge it on. ;)

  10. It's like MAC Club eyeshadow (and all the dupes for it) in a bottle :D

  11. Maybelline just put out a dupe for Club in their fall collection "Olive Martini" quad- this polish is almost identical to the shadow!
