Maybelline: Two Green Mattes With A Bit Of Pumpkin Hex Glitter Help

A road trip to Rite Aid was called for. I was hoping to find more than I came away with, unfortunately. In fact, only one item I got was intended. When I found these two polishes, instead, I thought all really wasn’t a waste. Maybelline is rockin’ some fun polishes, lately…

Now, the reason for the Rite Aid trip was to get some of the pumpkin polishes. There was only one that appealed to me or, I already had the others. But, I’m happy with this disco-ball of polish…

Luckily, it was less than a couple of bucks. $2 for some kicks. That’s cheaper than one Starbuck’s fix for me.

Do you like Maybelline’s ‘Ageless Olive’ and ‘Sage Staple’? What do you think about glitters in dark matte shades?
