Setting foot on New York Fashion Week has got to be every girl’s dream. While it’s a dream that isn’t easily attainable by everyone in the near future, Maybelline’s got us all wide-eyed girls and boys covered. Yes, you read that right. Maybelline New York bringing us the products needed to create the latest beauty trends fresh off the runway through their New York Fashion Week 2015 Collection.
Maybelline White Superfresh Foundation SPF 34 PA+++ Encased in a super sleek and minimalist packaging with the bottom completely see-though, the Maybelline White Superfresh Foundation is described as a “no touch up” foundation. It claims to perform as such because of its special ingredient, Mineral Perlite which allows the powder to absorb oil more stronger than regular talc. It comes in four shades:02 Nude Beige, 03 Natural, 04 Honey, and 05 Sand Beige which is quite limited, I have to say. However, this product has more winning moments than my one gripe about it. Considering that I have normal skin, I required virtually no touch ups when testing it. And the powder did flawless shine control as I went on my daily errands. The powder has medium coverage and immediately evens out my skin tone and conceal the redness with one swipe.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow 80 Creamy Beige I’ve always liked Maybelline’s 24 Hour Tattoo ever since they launched the first batch of shades a few years ago. For New York Fashion Week, they have a new shade called Creamy Beige. From the pot, it looks like a beautiful neutral mocha brown color. But when swatches, it actually is even more beautiful with tiny gold shimmer going through the entire pot. It’s so perfect as an eyeshadow base and it can totally be worn alone for a light wash of color topped with a dark brown liner for daytime and black for night time. The consistency is creamy but dries quick enough and the product stays on well.
Maybelline Colorsensational Bold Matte 1, 4 & 5 Maybelline offers a stellar lipstick line in different shades and finishes at an affordable price tag. But, only mattes made it to the curated collection for NYFW. Matte 5 is a cherry red, Matte 4 is an orange red, and Matte 1 is a pinkish red. My only gripe about this line is that the formula is a hardly matte finish. It’s actually more of a satin finish. And it’s not as pigmented as a regular matte lipstick should be. However, the formula is still great on its own. It’s just not matte and can easily be part of their regular line. The shades of red can be worn by different women and are perfect for women who want to wear red in a more subtle manner.
Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner 02 Brown This is probably my favorite from the bunch because I’m so into brown liners right now. I used to wear only black liners but it was only this year when I discovered the amazing fabulousness of brown liners. Unlike black eyeliners, brown liners are so much more subtle but still emphasizes the eyes perfectly. Maybelline’s gel liner in 02 brown is a gorgeous shade of chestnut brown made even mroe complex with fine micro shimmer. It matches the Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadow in creamy beige like a hand fits a glove. The consistency and staying power of this liner is also spot on. I definitely recommend this product to everyone because a makeup kit isn’t complete without a brown liner. ;)
