Discount Discovery: Love, Charlotte 881TAU

I remember reading some time ago that Color Club made a polish for the Charlotte Russe chain but since there wasn't one of those stores near me. I forgot about it until they opened one in the mall near where I live so I decided to check it out. What a treat! They sell for $3.50 each or 2/$6 so being the thrifty person that I am, I got four to maximize the savings. Ha. They don't have the typical sort of polish names that other companies use, even Color Club. Instead they an almost industrial combination of numbers and letters, but at least the letters sort of indicate the color. This one is 881TAU, for taupe, I would guess. It's nice that I've found a Discount Discovery that is available in a wider area and isn't temporary due to being a sale or a closeout!

Love, Charlotte by Color Club 881TAU, two coats plus topcoat
For $3 or $3.50 this is a great bargain. The formula was a breeze to work with and the color is on trend with the more expensive lines — in a bottle comparison this is a dupe for Essie Cocktails And Coconuts, right down to the subtle shimmer that stays in the bottle. The cap is tall and easy to hold and the brush is round like the Essie brushes, so it flares out nicely. So far this is the only one I've tried but I'm impressed with it and will continue to stop in to see how often they add to their color selection. One of the other ones I got is an amazing sapphire blue with a bright shimmer that I can't wait to try out!


  1. Oh I like this one a lot...and I had no idea Color Club made these! Their logo on the bottles is new, because I bought a love Charlotte dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream and this bottle shot does not have that logo. Same price though, and good formula :)

    I haven't gone by their recently, but now I'll be going back soon!

    1. I stop in for a quick look whenever I go to that mall now!
