I have to confess that it’s been ages since I’ve used any Maybelline New York products and haven’t kept up to date on their new products. But with their new launches so far for January and February of 2016 it’s safe to say that I’ve clearly been missing out!
Because here I am (below) with a face full of Maybelline and there are a few stand-out products that I really, really want to tell you about!
The first exciting piece of news I want to share is that the cult classic Baby Lips is now both a convenient balm and a blush! As you can see below the shape has now become very EOS-inspired but the great thing is that the balm is still as moisturising plus has an added benefit of being a blusher as well.
I was really impressed with both the balm and the blush (as seen below). The balm leaves a very natural pink sheen on the lips and the blush is very natural as well – both were really suitable for my fair skin.
Another new product I adore is the NEW Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara (see my lashes in the picture above). Seriously this is really good – the brush has cup-shaped bristles that really grab and push up on lashes giving you a lot of volume. This gives very expensive mascaras a run for their money!
Another product I love and have honestly been using every day since I recieved it is the Brow Drama Pomade Crayon. The formula stays put all day and the actual size of the crayon lets me define my brows perfectly. The formula is creamy, which I prefer so it glides on and lets you shape easily. A must-have for sure!
Next up is the NEW Dream Velvet Soft Matte Hydrating Foundation. This is also really lovely and blends like a dream. My face tends to get very shiny and oily so it’s nice to try a Matte Foundation as it really cuts down on that shine.
To blend you can use the Dream Blender (below) which is designed to work in union with the Dream Velvet Foundation. It’s very handy for blending, especially for hard to blend areas around the nose and eyes.
Last but not least is a Super Stay 24 Make-up Locking Setting Spray which you can use to set your entire look. I would definitely use this if I had to work all day and then had an evening event afterwards – it just makes it that much easier to keep everything in place and fits into your handbag too!
So needless to say, I will be sure to keep up-to-date with Maybelline’s new launches in the future because I am really impressed by what I’ve seen so far for 2016!
