Maybelline New York has recently launched some great new products! The collection is inspired by the latest makeup trends and runway looks. The new products include fun looks for eyes, lips and highlighting/contouring.
I was sent some samples for my honest review:
Maybelline Mascara Colossal Spider Glam ($7.77 USD) –The exclusive asymmetrical spider brush features cone-shaped bristles that grab and group lashes together; delivering volume at the base and sculpting lashes to a point with extreme length. The result: A bold, star-worthy look that’s all about drama. Available in 2 shades.
What I think: The description of this mascara says that it clumps lashes together. That is not a look that I go for. Luckily, when I use this, my lashes are separated and are soooo long! I love it! My lashes are so short, but you wouldn’t know it with this mascara. I think because I take my time with it, making sure my lashes separate, it doesn’t clump. But, if you want it to, I would say follow directions on the package.
Maybelline Contouring Face Studio Master Contour Stick Light ($10.99 USD) — This easy-to-use, split-sided duo features a dark contour shade on one side to add structure to the hallows of the cheeks and a light highlight shade on the other to enhance the cheekbones. Just swipe along the angles of the cheeks for an instant transformation to a V-shaped face. Available in 3 shades.
What I think: This is a really nice contouring stick. I like that it has the contour and highlight in one stick. It’s very creamy and easy to blend. I think it’s interesting that the highlight isn’t shimmery. It helps lighten the area without making it shiny. The only thing I have to watch is the colors bleeding together on the stick. I have had to wipe the dark shade off of the light one.
Maybelline Contouring Face Studio Master Strobe Medium Nude Glow ($11.99 USD) This creamy formula, infused with micro fine pearls, easily glides on skin leaving behind a luxurious light-reflecting sheen.The stick format provides the easiest way to achieve targeted results to beautifully define bone structure. Available in 2 shades.
What I think: This is definitely a shimmery strobe stick. The nude one above is so pretty with a tan, or to add a bit of color with the shimmer. The lighter strobe is really pretty as well. This is gorgeous on the cheekbones!
Maybelline Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds ($7.49 USD) High-intensity pay-off that’s truer and crisper on every skin tone. With 2D show-stopping shades covering the entire spectrum from light to dark that includes pops of vibrant pinks, modern browns and dynamic blues, you’re guaranteed a vivacious focal point to finish off any outfit. Available in 20 shades.
What I think: These lipsticks are so fun! Really well-pigmented! I tried the Midnight Blue above, and it is fun to wear! I also received a nude, bright pinks, an orange, bright red and a dark red. They all are so moisturizing. And if you want a matte look, blot your lips a bit and it’s gorgeously matte! For the price, grab a bunch!
Maybelline Lip Gloss Lip Studio Color Jolt Never Bare ($9.99 USD) — Lip Studio Color Jolt brings an explosive pop of intensity with eight times more pigment in every drop. The flocked tip provides for precise, clean application. Available in 8 shades.
What I think: I love these lip glosses, too! They are full coverage glosses. My favorites are the lighter colors, like Never Bare above. It is so pretty on. It is so glossy that I like to blot it a bit for a natural look when going out in the daytime, at night, more glossy the better!
