Maybelline's got a new collection out that looks to move into the core line. A lot of them are reissues from last fall's duochrome collection, but they've got them marketed as holographic. Um, no... The band around the cap is, though, and for some reason, I found that very amusing. Maybe the labeling refers to the little band, in which case it is in fact NOT false advertisement.
At any rate, my somewhat irrational amusement drove me to pick up one of the non-reissued colors (new, perhaps?), a cold and beautiful steel blue metallic called Blue Blaze.
Metallics are pretty easy to apply anyway, but Blue Blaze has a super nice and easy formula to work with. This went on perfectly in two coats with minimal brushstokes. The brush is pretty standard, neither too big nor too small, non tapered, and completely round. I like not having to find the correct way to angle some of the shaped brushes so they fit optimally on my nail-- basically, I've got no complaints about this polish, at all.
Blue Blaze is a lovely neutral and one of the more unique colors in Maybelline's Color Show lineup. The "holographic" collection is available for $3.99 each wherever Maybelline products are sold. This one's totally worth checking out.
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day! ♥
