I absolutely love new makeup. There’s no feeling like trying a new eyeshadow or eyeliner. I was thrilled to receive a selection of new 2016 Maybelline products to test out.
I was so impressed with the colours and new products released for the new year.
Maybelline has tons of new face products for 2016. The Master Contour Palette by FaceStudio, the FaceStudio Boosting Setting Spray and the Dream Velvet hydrating foundation are a few products I received.
The Dream Velvet foundation is incredible. It comes in 30ml tubes and is available in 12 shades. I have used Dream Velvet foundation since receiving my sample. I am very impressed on how little you need for your entire face (the first time I used it I squeezed way too much out). It applies evenly and moisturizes skin for up to 12 hours.
The Master Contour Palette by FaceStudio is fabulous. This is a three step system (1. Contour 2. Blush 3. Highlight). This face contouring kit comes with a contouring brush. If you aren’t sure how to apply the blushes in this kit there are step by step instructions on the back of the case. I follow the instructions everytime I use the contouring kit and am always very impressed with the results.
The FaceStudio Boosting Setting Spray is something I’ve never used before until now. I used it on New Years Eve and was impressed at how fresh my makeup looked all night long. To use the boosting setting spray simply mist your face after applying your makeup. Using the FaceStudio Boosting Setting Spray will extend the life of you applied makeup and keep it fresh looking all day.
I’m in love with all the new Maybelline eye products for 2016.
The first thing I do when applying eye makeup now is start with a base. I use the MasterPrime Long Lasting Eye Shadow Base. This creates a smooth surface on my eyelids and gives my eyes a nude look (you could use the eye shadow base on it’s own if you are after a nude look).
After applying the eye shadow base I move to the new The Rock Nudes eye shadow palette. This eye shadow palette is incredible. You can create up to 13 looks with this palette alone. Not sure how to apply the shadows? There are step by step pictures on the back of the palette to walk you through it (this was very handy for me!). I absolutely love the shades with glitter. The palette comes with a brush to apply the shadow.
If you prefer not to apply eye shadow with a traditional eye shadow new Maybelline Color Tattoo might be just what you are looking for. I love these shadows because they are easy to apply (fool proof really) they are creamy and have a little bit of glitter in them. The colour from these concentrated crayons with last up to 24 hours. I received 5 great colours, Lilac Lust is my favourite of them all!
Next comes the eyeliner! I was so excited to test out new MasterPrecise Skinny Gel pencils. These are so so good! The tip of these pencils is only 1.8mm so it’s always sharp. It is very smooth to apply and has a gel like consistency. It comes in three shades and I think every woman should have them all!
The Brow Drama Pomade Crayon is another new product to help you get a gorgeous look. This crayon fills in your brows in a simple swipe. It’s creamy, easy to apply and waterproof. It’s available in 3 shades.
Last but not least comes the Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara. The brush on this mascara is fanned and captures ever lash and fans them to extremity. This mascara is a great product.
I received three beautiful shades of Maybelline’s new Vivid Matte Liquid to test out on my lips. I really like how easily these lip colours apply. I also like the matte finish. Vivid Matte Liquid is available in shades.
These new products are available in stores now. I have loved wearing all of these new products. My favourite new products of the bunch are the skinny eyeliner and The Rock Nudes eyeshawdow palette. Head over to your favourite local drugstore to pick up some new shades for 2016. I can guarantee you will love all the products mentioned above.
