The Vintage Leather Collection is supposed to be Maybelline's answer to the textured trend. Sadly it falls very short. I'm going to address the formula first, before I show you the polishes. These are essentially matte creams with shredded flakies. IF they had left the flakies out and marketed these as Matte Shades, they would have had a huge success, because they are beautiful colors and the matte looks awesome. However the flakies jack everything up, they make it hard to apply, give it a strange only in certain areas texture, and don't match the rest of the polish. Have I bummed you out enough? Lets look at my 3 picks. Up first Antique Teal.
Next is Antique Teal with topcoat. Does that make it patent leather?
Next we have Classic Camel.
And finally we have Plush Plum.
I think top coat does help the polishes. It smoothes out the flakies and gives you a little dimension, which makes them feel more at home. Overall I love their color choices, but the formula is so god-awful that I can't in good conscious encourage you to buy these. Sad huh?
What do you think of these polishes?
Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
