Lilac Charm from Maybelline's Forever Strong Pro Porcelain Collection Gives Amazing Wear Time, Even On My Rubbish Chip-Prone Nails!



Leaving everything else to one side, I've been blown away by the wear time of Lilac Charm, the first polish I've tried from Maybelline's latest collection, Forever Strong Pro Porcelain.
The press release that arrived with my bottle focuses exclusively on the shade range and doesn't even mention formula or wear time, so this has taken me by complete surprise and exceeded all of my expectations. Don't you love it when that happens?!

These pictures were taken after five days wear and the polish is perfect. Today it's been on my fingers for SEVEN DAYS and there's just a little bit of tipwear on one or two nails. And I'm not even wearing an anti-chip topcoat, just a fast drying one, so this is all down to Lilac Charm's incredible tenacity and staying power.
These are out now, and they're €5.99. There are four other 'sugared almond' shades in the collection, and I plan to collect them all.
If you've tried these, WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME SOONER?!

I'm obsessed with lilacism from Essie, it looks like the same shade!

I'm the same as you Emma, been wearing the Maybelline Lilac Charm for a week and it still looks practically perfect! I've never seen the likes of it before and am seriously impressed. x

Love the colour Emma! There's nothing worse than a nail polish that chips after a day, can't wait to try these out!

WHAT? 5 days after and they look this good??? I wonder if we have this particular line of maybelline polish in the US! I have a similar colour from Zoya, but it chipped after a day.

Cabootique said...

That's a lovely color! I think I need a polish like that because I'm so rough on my nails - they always have chips.

Johanna said...

I have to try this polish it sounds amazing!! Love the shade too xxx

Coco said...

Hello Emma, I know this brand, but not the latest "Pro porcelaine" line. As for the colour, I love it in your picture, but I'm sure it would look awful on me!
I'll go and look for another shade, if you tell me that I can skip the double layer of protecting top coat to make my polish last three days at the very best! Thanks for the advice

Love these polishes, really nice shade too! 7 days is definitely a good one, although I usually change it before it gets a chance to chip!
