I'm Swatchin' You - Maybelline Barely Pink

Today I'm swatching Maybelline's Express Finish color Barely Pink.  The name is quite fitting as I barely see any pink!  It's more of a creamy off-white with an almost undetectable hint of pink.  Anyway, application was okay.  It didn't go on completely smoothly and streak-free, but it was workable.  The brush was slightly bigger than I would have liked.  Basically, an alright color with alright application.
On a side note, I did have another color I planned to swatch today.  It was another Maybelline Express Finish color called Cocoa bean...a nice, creamy brown.  Unfortunately, the polish was ruined.  I tried to thin it, but never got it to a good consistency.  I couldn't even get one good, full brush stroke.  Hopefully this is a fluke and not a formula problem.  I think I bought the Barely Pink around the same time and while it needed some thinning, it was able to be salvaged.  I do have two more colors from this line.  I guess we'll see how they held up over the next few posts.

SH Double Duty and SH Insta-Dri for base and top.
