Maybelline Cool Couture & Ulta Haul

Maybelline has really disappointed me lately with their seasonal collections. I remember in past years they had some better collections that I'll always pick a few out of. The worst collection was their 2011 Spring collection with those nasty sheer duo-chromes. Gah. They redeemed themselves for me with this single Fall 2011 collection color. I didn't bother with the others, but this one almost made me forget the other pitfalls.

Cool Couture
Cool Couture is a deep blue toned gray with teal shimmer throughout.

I absolutely adore this color! This has all the attributes of a great polish. The color is great the shimmer is unique and unexpected. It's especially unexpected for it being such a run-of-the-mill drugstore brand polish. The formula was on point. This color is great for fall. Win win win! Please Maybelline make more polishes like this.

*********************************

Also, be sure if you're near an Ulta today to take advantage of their Butter London BOGO free sale. I heard all of these are sold out online, but I'm confident you'll find them in stores. I went today and the Butter London display was well stocked.

Here is what I picked up...plus I got other stuff.....


  •  Essence Holographic.com polishes- Gagalectric, Prism@tic White, & Blue Ray (They're not really holographic they're duochrome shimmers)
  •   Revlon Edgy Elegance- Girly (I now regret not getting Fierce)
  •  Pixel- Oh Goly Gee
  •  Butter London- Toff, Henley Regatta, Artful Dodger, & Marrow


If you took advantage of the BOGO Butter London sale, what did you get?

Happy Tuesday!

  4. I picked up similar items at Ulta today!  I only got 2 butter LONDON polishes though, cuz the SA told me limit 2 meant limit 2 polishes only. :(  I would've gotten 4 if I could...I ended up with All Hail the Queen and Big Smoke. 

    I also picked up two of the Essence Holographic.com polishes (skipped out on Prismatic White) and 1 Revlon polish (Royal Cloak from the Masquerade collection).

    Can't wait to see your swatches! :)

  8. Darn!  I already spent my fun money for the week on polish, now I wish I'd saved it for Butter London!

  9. Hee! I went to Ulta today for the butter London sale (I had it mentally marked on my calendar since the beginning of the month!) and picked up a lot of the same stuff as you. I have been wanting All Hail the Queen and Marrow for awhile, so that's what I got. I also got Revlon Girly and Fierce and Essence No More Drama to put me over the $10 mark so that I could use the coupon. And I already got the Essence "holographics" a few weeks ago at another Ulta even though the one nearest me was JUST putting together the display today (I saw the girl working on it behind the counter). The in-store butter displays were well-stocked around me too, so anyone looking to take advantage of the sale should definitely check in-store if they are able.

  11. I sent my mom to ulta today. I had polishes picked out online but they were definitely sold out. My mom picked Knees Us, Wallis, No More Waity Katie, and Toff. I really wanted All Hail the Queen, but my mom has pretty great taste!
