Maybelline goodies!


This year Maybelline were the official makeup sponsors of London Fashion Week so had various stands around Somerset house. Something exciting was that Mollie King from the saturdays (who I have already stated was my fashion icon) had collaborated with Maybelline to design her own lipstick colour. I had read about this before going and wanted to make sure that I picked one up when I went. I was standing around the maybelline stand and the lady gave me and my mum one of the lipsticks and said we could have it! I have literally never felt luckier!





The colour is not as scary on the lips as it is in the tube. The packaging is lovely and pink and has Mollie's signature on the side which gives it an effect of how limited it is! I am not sure whether this will be released in shops but I will definitely keep my eye out if it does and let you all know!

Something else that Maybelline were selling where these 'beauty boxes' for £10 that had a particular look inside. As a paler person I wanted one that I knew would suit my skin tone and that I knew I would wear as an everyday look. I went for 'pure enhancement'.



The box included a Brow drama sculpting brow mascara in Dark Brown which is a little too dark for me so will be giving this away to my mum! It also included a Mega plush mascara in very black. Which is something I actually wanted to buy myself when I next went to boots so that was a bonus! Dream touch blush in Berry was also included which really matches my skin tone to give a natural blush which I love! Finally it came with Baby Lips in Hydrate and a Colour show nail lacquer in 'Nebline'. The baby lips has no colour so will be perfect for prepping the lips for lipstick and the nail varnish is a lovely neutral pale pink shade and something that I think I am going to love! I love that I had only paid £10 for the box and once I had added everything up it had come to £25-ish so I defiantly found a bargain!

I really like the way they packaged this box and presented it as it makes it appear exciting to buy and I spotted the box right away and wanted it! 

Hope you enjoyed this blog comment and let me know if you have tried any of these products!

  4. Wow, so many nice things :) I like limited lipstick the most & that nude nail polish :)
    p.s. To answer your question about wearing 'caviar nail stickers'- it was odd feeling at first because of a thick layer but I got used to it after a while :) xx

  10. I love maybelline, even though I do not own pretty much from this brand- just the lip balm and an eyeliner. All my life, when I had an encounter with Maybelline, I was never disappointed :)
