Collection: L'Oreal Dark Shades of Grey 2015
Color: It's easy to see why this polish was an instant hit. It's a beautiful holo. It's not a pure silver holo either, which definitely makes it stand out. Masked Affair does a hint of purple to it. The holo effect is bright and beautiful too.
Formula: This is where I've seen this polish become either a hit or a complete miss with people. I didn't find this formula great, but I didn't find it completely horrific either. I had some major bald spots and patchiness when applying the first coat. I did find the polish dragged too. The first coat was a hot mess. The second and third coat (I only applied 3 in this swatch) applied nicely for me though.
Price: I paid around $6 for this at Bed Bath & Beyond. I've seen it at Walgreens this past week too.
Overall: I think this is a beautiful holo, and it's an amazing drugstore find. The price is excellent, the holo effect is strong, and the color is beautiful. The formula was a wreck on the first coat, but did play nicely on the second and third coat. I can't say I'm disappointed at all, and I think Masked Affair is worth a try.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Really lovely holo that is!ReplyDelete
It is really pretty, part of me hates that it's in any way connected to the stupid movie, even if it isn't official, lol!! But it is a beautiful drugstore polish, for sure! I hope more drugstore brands will catch on!ReplyDelete
I think it's worth a try too. It just sucks that people had such differing experiences with the formula. My formula was pretty great, but I've heard others say it just stinks. LOL!ReplyDelete
There are definitely more variances in formulas I notice in drugstore brands. I think it's well worth it for a drugstore holo though.ReplyDelete
I don't even pay attention to the movie connection. I hope more drugstore brands will catch on too!ReplyDelete
