Maybelline Express Finish Flash of Gold
This Summer, Maybelline introduces nine juicy colors to the Express Finish Line called, The Flash of Gold collection. Each limited editon color is a semi sheer texture that has flecks of gold shimmer in each bottle.
Today I'm bringing you six out of the nine shades from Maybelline. Each color is a gorgeous jelly like texture that has gold flecks and some matching shimmer.
The only downfall to these beauties, they are pretty sheer compared to China Glaze's Summer Days collection.
Most colors needed a good three coats or more to obtain bottle color, with the exception of the reds, which only needed around two.
Check out all the swatches below.
Aqua Electric, one of my favorites, described as an Aqua blue with flecks of gold and blue.
Magenta Shock, a light magenta pinkish purple. This one applied pretty sheer, you'll need four coats for bottle color.
Fuchsia Fire, a light pink with flecks of gold. A much lighter version of China Glaze's Strawberry Fields.
I'll be giving away one bottle of Fuchsia Fire to one of my lucky subscribers this week.
Fiery, a reddish orange with flecks of gold.
Manadrin Heat, a coral with flecks of gold.
Blazing Berry, a berry pink with flecks of gold.
Maybelline's Flash of Gold collection is now available for a limited time only and retails around $3.99/each. Have a wonderful Monday!

So these are in the stores now? I think I want a red, either Blazing Berry or Fiery. The Fuchsia Fire looks nice too, but it doesn't look fuchsia in the picture, more of a medium pink.

They all look pretty. I like all the reds the best.

Hi Dee, Yes, they should be in stores now. Although, around here, they've been pretty hard to find. Hi Brooklynshoebabe, No, you shouldn't have any problems removing these :) Lucy, Thanks! The reds are definitely more opaque than the others! Hi Smartchic, Thanks! :)
