My Experience

I bought 4 colors from this range - Blackcurrant Pop, Kiss me-Pink, Choco Sin and Silver Linings.

The colors in this range are beautiful, vibrant and the pigmentation is good.

Single coat is decent but the real beauty of the colors can be seen only with a second coat. The quality of the polishes is very good for the price they come at! As a practice I always use a base coat, so cannot comment on whether it stains the nails.

I have used 2 coats in all the swatches below and have applied NO filter on the pictures so that you can see the real colors.

Maybelline Choco Sin -  It is a beautiful Chocolate brown/ Oxblood color. The pigmentation is good, texture is smooth and the final look is creamy and glossy. It is one of my favorite winter colors!

Maybelline Kiss me-Pink - A beautiful blue based fuchsia with tiny blue and purple shimmer which can  be seen in different lights. I have tried to capture it in the picture below.
I love this color for it's vibrance which adds a beautiful pop of color to my nails!

Maybelline Silver Linings - A basic Silver polish, it is opaque in 2 coats. Slightly streaky application but the final result is pretty decent.

Maybelline Blackcurrant Pop - One of my favorites in this collection. A gorgeous lavender, this color is creamy and glossy with a smooth application and no streaks. I love it!
