Last month, my sister and I went to London Fashion Weekend at Somerset House, which is such a lovely venue to house so many beautiful designs. As the event's official make up brand, the Maybelline gift bag available had some great new products inside.
Maybelline Volum' Express Mega Plush Mascara in black, is their first gel mascara with flexor brush, which gives the brush more resistance than normal brushes. I haven't purchased a Maybelline mascara since my high school days when everyone had The Great Lash Mascara. Anyway this mascara has a lightweight formula and doesn't feel heavy on my lashes, but I don't see great volume. I think this is best suited for long lash gals as the wand is thick in the middle and tapers out and doesn't grab my short lashes very well. In case you were wondering, my go to mascara is Maxfactor 2000 Calorie Volume and Curl, which never fails to disappoint in my eyes!
Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner in black, I'm sure many of you have this in your make up bag as it's a great inexpensive gel liner. This is a nice eyeliner with a matt finish that doesn't rub or smudge as much, as when I use liquid or kohl liners. The brush that comes with it is easy to use to build up intensity. I do find you have to apply light strokes quickly, otherwise it dries too fast to fix any mistakes!
Maybelline Superstay 14hr Lipstick in Continuous Cranberry 560, great name and shade for Autumn. This is a lovely deep berry red and I love that it's matte, creating a classic yet bold look. This lipstick is nice and easy to apply, but I think if used with a lip brush it would create a much cleaner line. I don't know about the 14hr longevity with my constant eating and drinking during the day though!
Maybelline Colorshow Nail Polish in Blackout and Neon Pink, are both great standout statement shades to show off any talons. They have a nice shine finish, easy to apply and lasts a good few days with a topcoat. They're also at a great price £2.99 for 7ml.
We also picked up the limited edition Mollie King from The Saturdays, favourite lipstick Color Sensational Vivids Fuchsia Flash. This is a super bright neon pink, very Mollie and it suits her style well. This is a great vivid lipstick, pigmented with a semi shine finish and creamy feel.
