Maybelline Salsa Sun Summer 2010 Collection & L'Oreal Passport to Paradise Collection

Remember my giveaway!

I was on the hunt for Sally Hansen's Hidden Treasure yesterday and today with no luck. I've been to 5 Walgreens and 3 CVS. I give up for now. If you don't know what Hidden Treasure is check out Nouveau Cheap's post. However, at one Walgreens I found these new polishes by Maybelline part of their Salsa Sun Summer 2010 collection. Right now they are BOGO 1/2 off!

They also had another display with makeup with two other nail colors a bright red-orange and a grass green. This a picture from my phone so the color is off they are brighter. Most these are cremes or have a subtle unnoticeable shimmer. These are AMAZING summer colors. I am so excited about them! All these colors I can picture looking great on summer vacations and at the beach. I love when colors can whisk you away to places.

I picked up these...

Coral Cabana

This a bright red-coral creme. It goes on smooth and dries quickly which I love. This is probably my favorite of the bunch. I love reds and coral reds. I used 2 coats.

Banana Bamba

This is a light yellow with a subtle shimmer I didn't even notice until I looked at the picture of the bottle. I don't notice this shimmer at all. This is my first yellow polish ever. Yellows always scared me, but I think I like this. It's not an everyday color, but a great color for a day out. I used 3 coats.

Beach Plum

This is a light plum creme. I love this one. It's a perfect summer purple. It's fresh and bright. I used 2 coats.

I also saw the L'Oreal Passport to Paradise collection. The polish colors in this collection are said to be dupes to Essie's North Fork 2009 collection.

I only ended up getting Waters Edge. I would of gotten them all, but to be honest blues and greens especially on the lighter side look terrible on my skin tone. It's a shame because blues and greens are some of my favorite colors in general. These are beautiful shades though that I would recommend!

Waters Edge

This is a muted turquoise. It does go on a bit thick but nothing to fuss about. I think it looks alright on me. I can probably pull it off. I love it too much not to! I used 2 coats

That's it for today! Has anyone been able to find Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure? If so, where did you find it?


  1. I've been looking for Hidden Treasure too, and no luck :( but the other polishes that you got are really great!

  2. Not looking for the Hidden Treasures - but that Water's Edge looks goooooood on you. A keeper for sure!

  3. Have you tried Target?

  4. I've tired Target, with no luck. My Target regardless that I'm in a pretty popular city is the last to get new things. I told my parents in Texas to be looking for it too. I'm nuts. :P
