I do have quite a few nude beigish-pinkish-brown lipsticks and glosses but a pure “Brown” is not what I prefer. I am more of a “pink-peach” Lover.
For a change I did bring in “Mysterious Mocha”, a creamy matte lipstick from Maybelline (I have reviewed this range here) and well I was quite impressed! Though still not a very big fan! Brown, somehow I feel makes you look dull. In order to prevent myself from looking dull and boring, I wore this pretty mocha shade with a neutral eye-shadow, thick black eye-liner and not-so-heavy face make-up, and I quite liked it. I think the look can be carried off quite well for day or night outings.
If you too are not very fond of a “brown” lipstick but want to wear it and are not sure how to carry it, this can give you a few ideas.
Maybelline has been up with new products one after the other since last few months and Maybelline Hyper Matte Eyeliner is one of those! I surely couldn’t afford to give it a miss as I wear a matte black liner almost everyday to work.
Prior this I have used Maybelline Gel Liner, Maybelline Collosal Liner, Lakme Shine lineLiner. All in matte black.
Lakme Shine Line Liner was a disappointment! It cracked a lot at the inner 1/4th corner of the eye and ended up looking messy and too dry! Since then I was just taken aback by liquid eye-liners…
Maybelline being my all-time favourite, managed a place in my kit. Have been using it since a week now and here is what I think about the product.
Sleek and very light! It comes in a black and white plastic body (thank god! no handle-with-care hassle). The brush is thin enough.. not super thin I would say! The bristles have the perfect length and the brush feels really light while applying which ensures better control and application.
Product on Application
The liquid has a good enough consistency. It’s neither too thin nor too thick. On application it takes about half a minute to dry and turn matte. If you’ve used Lakme Shine Line liner, I would say that this one doesn’t look as matte as the lakme one. Also, this one doesn’t crack much in the inner 1/4th corner of the eye like the lakme liner did, but cracking is still there.
It’s water proof and smudge proof as the product claims for itself.
It stays well for 8 hours. I can easily spend my day at work with this on!
It’s readily available online and at all the maybelline counters.
Why It couldn’t make 5/5
1. The price seemed slightly higher for the given quantity.
2. It tends to crack in the inner corner of the eyes
I am a big BIG fan of bling and pink! and when teamed, they are the best option for party nails! I used Maybelline “hooked-on-pink” as the base coat, holographic silver on the tips (not available in India, you can get in online.) lined with silver glitter particles (purchased online) to get this look.
You can try out your own combinations and create something new.
Glitter ALWAYS makes me so happy! This is what I wore for the last weekend party and I adored it! You can play along with as many and which ever colours you like. The reason for which I chose this combination is because it matched my outfit really well!
Red and Gold is an ever classic combination and the safest to play with when getting decked up for a close wedding and want to choose a dramatic look. For this classic red gold makeup, I chose to pair glitter gold eye make-up with a bold red matte lip color. Since the two shades spoke for themselves, I kept a loose hand at the blush. A highlighter is inevitable!
Have been looking for a Mint Nail Polish since long and Maybelline Forever Strong Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Color – Mint for Life is the latest addition in my nail polish drawer! Here is a quick update based on 2 coats application of Maybelline Gel Nail Polish and a single coat of clear top.
I have been highly obsessed with glitter eye-liners lately or rather I should correct myself and say I am obsessed with glitter ALWAYS!! I wore this beautiful glitter teal eyeliner for a dinner outing last week. Bling in any form looks best when worn at night. This eye-liner is even more special as it was gifted by a dear friend when we were just out of college in 2011, so it’s like 4 years old!! can be considered vintage 😉 none of my make-up product has been so old and lasted so well!!
This look that you see was created to make the bright teal look GLAMOROUS and not over the top, for which I kept rest of the face fresh and subtle.
