It's not a secret anymore that I love nail lacquers. My happiness knew no bounds when I found out that there are glitter mania nail colors in my beauty haul from Diva Likes. Today I am going to review Matinee Mauve shade from Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania. Now-a-days, purple color is quite in trend and I have to admit that I actually started liking this color. Let's find out if this nail color is as awesome as other shades of glitter mania series or if it failed to impress.

My Experience With Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Matinee Mauve (605):

Packaging: The nail lacquer comes in a transparent glass bottle which has a black screw cap attached with an applicator brush. I have accidentally dropped the bottle once yet there wasn't a single scratch on it. The bottle is quite travel friendly.
Applicator Brush: The applicator brush is very convenient to use and doesn't cause any streaks at all. In fact, it is one of the smooth brushes I have used in the glitter mania series.
Shade & Texture: The shade is a frosty/metallic muted purple with micro shimmers and large hexagon silver shimmers. The shade will not only flatter fair skinned people but also looks good on dusky/wheatish hands. The shade has a beauty of its own. Though it looked a bit odd to me on long nails, it looks flattering on short clipped manicured nails. Once it gets dry, the texture looks rough and sand like. More than 2 coats will make the varnish too rough for the texture.

Pigmentation: The varnish comes semi-opaque with a single coat and double coat will make it absolutely opaque. Due to the presence of large amount of shimmers, the pigmentation is quite strong.
Staying Power: Glitter mania, apart from being beautifully glittering, is also famous for its amazing staying power. The varnish hardly chips even after a week. I would opine that it is absolutely awesome as far as the staying power is concerned.

Pros Of Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Matinee Mauve (605):
  • Travel friendly packaging and easy to carry around.
  • Great applicator brush.
  • A beautiful frosty purple loaded with shimmers.
  • The color looks flattering on any skin tone.
  • Large amount of glitters make the shade come out alive.
  • Good pigmentation. Only 2 coats make the shade opaque.
  • Staying power of more than 7 days without chipping.

Cons Of Maybelline Color Show Glitter Mania Matinee Mauve (605):
  • None.

Final Note:

I have never been a fan of purple but this color made me fall in love with mauve. Given the fact that it flatters every skin tone, I shall recommend this color to everyone. The color is neither too loud nor too pale for your hands. It is perfect to wear for any occasion.
