Hey Maybelline! You’re almost doing it right!
The new Maybelline Eye Studio Master Drama Eyeliner Collection should be at your local drugstores now. At $6.99 each in your choice of six shades it’s one of the nicer, budget eye liners I’ve tried recently.
But it has issues….
Oh excuse me! I’m just burping up a rehash of Maybelline Eye Studio Palettes from last season.
No seriously, I heart you Maybelline but your Eye Studio Color Explosion Eye Shadow Palettes (released earlier this year in Europe and Asia) are kinda old news.
First off all, these palettes have walked the runway across Asia and Europe and secondly, well, they are pretty much a revamp of your current Eye Studio Palette Collection but you simply added in a sparkle over coat for us to go gaga over.
And yes, that overcoat definitely makes me heart flutter but some disappointment on my part is expected.
I wasn’t terribly impressed with the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Foundation when it released. The actual design of the product is interesting and I like the application method even though I can’t help but shudder over the bacteria that may be lurking in that little puff (Maybelline claims it’s treated with an anti-bacterial agent but I’m not convinced).
My main problem with the foundation was it felt greasy on my face and had a really long dry down time. It remained dewy to the touch hours after application. Some proclaimed it set fabulously with powder but I have drier skin so I normally avoid powder. Others proclaimed it a flawless finish and indeed, it did give a rather great overall finish but it was that greasy, slick, never drying formula that threw me for a curve ball.
Am I bias against drugstore foundation? Possibly but I really do think Age Rewind wasn’t all that fabulous a pick. What did you think if you tried it?
Maybelline gifts us with an early Fall release and extension on the Age Rewind idea with a new concealer. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer might be good…I’m kinda hyped here peeps. Age Rewind Foundation sucked it hard but maybe the concealer will prove brilliance on a stick.
As it extension of their new bright and vibrant Summer Color Collection Maybelline has introduced a limited edition Great Lash Mascara in a teal and green color as well as a Define a Line Eyeliner in the same shades.
I didn’t pick it up as I must be one of the few women in promise me green, teal, or hell even rainbow lashes and it still won’t tempt me into purchasing a tube of Great Lash!
If you’re so inclined this collection is available now at drugstores.
