Maybelline 210 Red Grained

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about a minute for a coat). It's a pretty red matte colour with subtle flecks. I wouldn't call it a 'vintage leather' finish though. Noticed some tip wear after a while but lasted well otherwise. I picked this up cheap and really wanted to try it, it is nice but not the leather look!

Rating

Application = 8/10
Drying time = 9/10
Lasted well = 7/10
Coats = 2
Finish = matte with flecks
Removal = easy
Overall = 7/10
Purchased from = Poundworld

My Personal Rating = 7/10 nice enough :-)

  4. Perhaps they named it the vintage leather because of the flakies, I mean wasted leather, kind of old and destroyed?
    Nice shade. I can't tell if it's my type of finish, I haven't worn these Maybellines...

    1. Maybe that's the reason I don't know! Seems a little odd with the flecks in it too :-|
