Today I have swatches of three Maybelline Bleached Neons! I purchased these a few weeks go at my local drugstore. I didn’t even know this collection was being sold in my country so that was an awesome surprise as there’s been a lot of hype about this collection on social media. Let’s take a look!
Maybelline – Coral Heat: First up is Coral heat, an awesome coral neon pastel. This collection definitely reminds me of the China Glaze pastel neons (the cremes from the Summer 2013 Sunsational collection), only the formula is less chalky. I wouldn’t say it was perfect but they were definitely easier to work with! This one had the nicest formula and required two coats. I also added top coat as they dry semi-matte.
Maybelline – Sun Flare (aka Bleached In Peach): Next is Sun Flare which is called Bleached In Peach in the US. This one is my favourite out of the three I picked up. It’s an awesome neon pastel peach. It’s so Summery! It’s fairly similar to China Glaze Sun Of A Peach only this one’s a lot paler. I love how tan this makes me look. Formula was a little streakier and required three coats but was still pretty easy to work with. I also added top coat!
Maybelline – Chic Chartreuse (aka Lime Accent): Then finally we have this awesome pale neon green. This one also has a different name in EU/UK compared to US. It kinda looks like Wasabi! 😀 I am so glad they had this one in stock as it is such a fun colour. Love this one! I also used three coats and top coat.
I totally understand the hype and buzz around this collection. These shades are a must-have for Summer. If you loved the China Glaze pastel neons you will adore these! The formula is fairly good though you might need an extra coat to even out streaks. The only thing I disliked about these was the brush, mine all seemed to have a very scratchy and uneven brush with stray hairs. Maybe I was just unlucky with this batch, as the other Maybelline Color Show polishes I have have an awesome brush.
