• New launches from Maybelline

    Getting new makeup is always fun, especially when I receive more than one of a product which means I get to share it with my readers.  This post will be a quick review of a few new Maybelline products followed by a little giveaway.

    Maybelline is releasing their The Rock Nudes Palette which can be used to create 13 different looks. The way the palette is designed is really clever - it is made up of 3 quads that go from a lilac palette to a very dark iridescent palette - this makes the palette very versatile and fun to use.  It also works broken up into trios or duos, where you use the neighbouring colours to create unique looks.  I am a serious fan of the middle quad, the purples and gold are my favourites.
    The eyeshadows are all well pigmented and transfer easily onto the skin. What I especially like is that the shaows are very finely milled which makes them almost buttery in texture. I didn't swatch all of the shadows for this post but did a few swatches to give you an idea of the colour payoff.

    Quick Tip: If you struggle to build up colour of an eyeshadow, I suggest using a light cream base (or a cream eyeshadow) and then press the eyeshadow into the cream while it is still a bit wet. This helps me to achieve a more pigmented look and my eyeshadows stay put throughout the day.

    I was also sent some Color Sensation lipsticks to try out. I am a big fan of Maybelline lipstick and have been buying them since my teenage years.  These lipsticks are incredibly creamy on your lips and apply so easily. They have good colour and wears lightly on my lips, which I like. Because it is so creamy in consistency it doesn't dehydrate your lips and feels comfortable for a good few hours.  The two shades I got are called Fairly Bare (107) and More to Adore (157). Both are really beautiful shades of pink that are perfect for summer and very wearable for many skin tones.
