Maybelline recently launched a range of exciting new products. Couturing put them to the test to see what all the fuss is about.
Eye Studio Color Molten Duo Shadow (RRP$13.95)
These eye shadow duos are described as a “gel-powder formula” that “melts at the touch for the most fluid glide and seamless bendability”. The texture of these shadows are quite unique, and while they give a powder finish, the application definitely does feel quite like a cream. They are not the most pigmented; but they blend seamlessly and would make a perfect eye shadow base. However, if you do actually like a subtle eye look, then you will love these on their own. Each duo features a lighter all-over-the-lid shade and a darker crease shade, and there are six duos to choose from.
Baby Lips Candy Wow (RRP$6.95)
The beloved Baby Lips lip balm is now available in retractable crayon form! These balm crayons contain vitamin E, which leaves the lips feeling moisturized and give them a glossy finish while adding a little colour. With four shades in the range, these are lovely for everyday wear as they add a nice tint to the lips and keep them looking plump. You can re-apply them on the go and they have a delicious scent.
Color Sensational Rebel Bloom (RRP $6.95)
This lipstick collection is about all things bold, featuring 10 eye-catching shades. The formula of them are pigmented yet they don’t feel drying on the lips. With some of the brighter shades I would suggest a lip liner as they can feather around the lip slightly, but most of them stay pretty well and are quite opaque. They have a strong sweet scent, which can be quite potent on the nose however it does fade throughout the day.
These three collections from Maybelline are innovative and have perfect Spring shades for the upcoming warmer months. Our top three must-haves:
Baby Lips Candy Wow in Raspberry – it smells divine and is a pretty berry shade on the lips
Color Molten Duo in Endless Mocha – perfect for an understated everyday eye look
Rebel Bloom in Lilac Flush – a unique colour to really top off your makeup look
