Swatched: Maybelline Fashion Week Polish, quotDowntown Brownquot

4 years ago

Hi everyone! Here is another swatch of one of the Maybelline Fall Fashion Week 2012 polishes that I picked up from Bed, Bath & Beyond about a month ago. These should be available in most drugstores by now and there are only a few of each shade in the display so if you want anything grab it before it`s gone. To see the other Fall Fashion Week shades I swatched, please click the links below: - /viz/swatched-maybelline-fall-fashion-week-polish-quotboho-goldquot - /viz/swatched-maybelline-fall-fashion-week-polish-quotpink-cosmoquot-pic-heavy
Price & Availability - $3.99 - Should be available in most drugstores. I got mine from Bed, Bath and Beyond
Shade & Finish - Downtown Brown is a red-toned brown with emerald green shimmer throughout
How many coats? - I used three to get complete opacity
Pros - Formula is easy to work with - I think the color is unique. As far as I know, there isn`t another brand out there that has done a shade like this but I could be wrong. - According to NouveauCheap this is essentially MAC`s Club (or any other similar eyeshadow shade) in nail polish form, so if you like the look of the eyeshadow you might like the nail polish!
Neutrals - Does require three coats to get complete opacity - Availability: may be difficult to find because this collection was pretty popular - Price: according to NouveauCheap, these polishes have less than half the quantity of previous Maybelline polishes but the price is only $1 less (0.5oz vs. 0.23oz; $4.99 vs $3.99).
Cons - None really
Overall I really like this color because it`s different from anything that I own and it seems like a perfect color for fall. The three coats doesn`t really bother me because the formula is nice and thin so it doesn`t look thick when applied. The price also doesn`t bother me either because I have never finished a bottle of polish, so less won`t hurt. PLUS I used $1 off coupons while at BBB so these were only $2.50. Thanks for reading! Did you pick up this shade or any of the other Fashion Week shades? What do you think of them? All images and content are my own.
