I saw Maybelline in a Coup de Ville.


It's been a while since I've wrote about any of the new cosmetics I've brought, but after being unable to resist Superdrug's "Buy One Get One Half Price" on Maybelline, I was so impressed I just had to blog!

I brought two things -  the Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Hollywood Red and the Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara in black.

Let's start with the lipstick - the shade is less red and more of a pink and is the perfect day-time colour for anyone who loves a touch of vintage glamour. Stuck in the middle of a nude and pink-red, the colour is dense and moisture packed leaving your lips feeling soft and hydrated.

Rather than using a pink or red lip liner, I chose to use a white liner to define my top lip and smudge inwards to act as a natural highlighter. The above photo doesn't do it justice at all, and it is a dream to apply. It's one of those rare lipsticks I felt I could apply straight from the tube rather than needing a brush which is always a bonus when on the go!

The second item was the Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara in black. I brought this on a total whim, and am so glad I did because for the first time, I am able to cover my lower lashes without looking like a panda!

The wand design is very clever. It's double ended with a thicker brush designed for your longer top lashes and a mini brush to reach those hard to get tiny ones on bottom. The mascara texture itself is lengthening, thickening and clump-free when combed through with care. I also found that a sprinkling of setting powder dusted on with a fan brush before the mascara application really made them telescopic! The mascara is perfect for when you want a high-impact look with very little effort as it makes your eyes do all the talking.




Normally when I fall into a sales trap, I instantly regret the impulse choices as soon as I get home. (Note to self: no more liquid liners!) This time though, I couldn't be any more thrilled with my choices and both things have safely found a new home in my everyday make-up bag.

Until next time,
