Whats new with Maybelline?| 2017 products| #maybellinesquad

 Youtube video

Hello loves,

How are you all doing? this post and video is basically to keep you lovely peeps informed about all the new goodies Maybelline Cosmetics has released. Please make sure you watch the full swatch and first impression video first so you can flow with what I am banging on about below. 

1. Master camo colour correcting concealer 


This was created to conceal, correct and highlight, it comes in fair, medium and deep (deep is coming out soon) which to me is pretty annoying and frustrating. If you were to go into stores today to purchase this product, you will only find the fair and medium palettes. I was sent the fair shade to try out but I went on a hunt for the darker shade and I was a bit disappointed that they did not release the dark shade (in the UK, don’t know about anywhere else) at the same time. 


What does the product claim?

Color correcting kit takes the guesswork out of color correcting. Curated by skin tone; now correct, conceal, and highlight for the insta-perfect canvas.

Three simple steps to a perfected complexion: color correct, conceal, and reveal. Helps neutralise skin tone issues, conceal imperfections and under eye circles, and brighten facial features.

Packaging and design 


The product comes in a sleek black, small palette with 6 sections of creaminess. The first two sections (top and bottom) are for correcting, next two are for concealing and the last two are for highlighting. The packaging has a transparent window on top which allows for adequate visibility into the product without having to open it. It is made of plastic and comes with an application brush, I feel that the applicator is quite small and inadequate and you would be better off applying the product with your fingers. 

On the back you get an instruction guide on how to use the product. Please click here if you would like to know the recommended way of using the product.  You get 9 grams worth of product and it retails for £8.99 on super website. 

Does it work?


Well, I went into my local boots to buy the medium shade (watch the video for swatches) to hopefully give an informed impression about it as I was sent the fair shade. Needless to say that the medium shade was very light and almost unusable. I can say that the corrector and concealer shade was very creamy and blended out well on my hand. However, the highlight shades were gorgeous, they blended into the skin and gave off that sheen, glowing effect. 

2. Super Stay 24 Lip Color 

Maybelline super stay color

This is a long-lasting lip product that has a unique Micro-Flex technology that claims to prevent the product from drying, caking or flaking. It comes with two sections; a balm and the actual lip product. There are a total of 29 shades in this collection which gives you a diverse range of colours. It claims that it will stay fresh through 24hours of wear, I am yet to try out that claim so I guess I cant comment on that. 

In my unboxing video I stated to apply the balm first then the lip colour (which is how I would ideally think to rock the product as it claims to be long wearing) however, on the maybelline site it states: 

Apply liquid lip color to clean, bare lips.
Allow two minutes to dry, then apply the ultra-conditioning balm to seal in moisture. 
Reapply balm as needed. 
Remove with an oil-based makeup remover.

Either way, I applied the product on the back of my hand and …. (watch the video, wink).

Packaging and design

It comes in a white pen like packaging with two segments. One half is the balm and the other half is the lip colour. The lip colour has a dofa which is great for easy application. The other section which is the balm is very moisturizing without being overly greasy. The shades I received are
Eternal cherry 
Pink goes on

 3. Color sensational matte lipstick

You guys know I am a huge fan of the maybelline lipsticks (all formulas and shades), as a matter of fact I have done a lot of lip swatch videos on my youtube channel showcasing how amazing the formula is. I was super ecstatic when I received Siren in Scarlette as it is such a gorgeous red shade that will compliment any skin tone.

What does the product claim? 
Now, lips slip into our creamiest matte. Sensuous matte cream formula meets bold pigment colour for our smoothest, most seductive mattes. In 6 make-a-statement shades.

Worried that matte lipstick with make your lips look and feel dry? New Color Sensational Creamy Mattes give you matte lips that look smooth, moisturised and more plump, and feel comfortable all day.

Packaging and design
It comes in a standard lipstick bullet with a matte grey/blue cap and silver tube. The name and shade is printed on the base of the product which is great for organising.


4. Dream brightening concealer
This product comes in 5 shades, light, fair, medium, medium deep and universal. I was sent fair and unfortunately it is too light for me so will be going into a giveaway for my youtube channel. I did however go on a hunt for the medium shade but no  such luck. This product in darker shades is virtually impossible to find

According the Maybelline, this product is a concealer which instantly conceals and brightens for a fresh, bright-eyed look!
A convenient crayon for instant bright eyes throughout the day.

Has anyone tried it out? are the claims spot on?

5. Lip contour palette 
This is a fun little lip palette, I received the shade Blushed Bombshell and I was truly impressed by the quality of the product. It also comes in Crimson Vixen which has reds and plums in it. This contour palette comes with 6 lip colours, a lip primer and a highlight.

The packaging has a transparent window on top which allows for adequate visibility into the product without having to open it.

6. Baby lips color crayon
This comes in 6 shades, this shade is called Sugary Orange. This is a Moisturising oil color balm crayon which gives full hydration to the lips. It retails for 5.99 pounds.

7. Master strobing liquid

The master strobing liquid illuminating highlighter is the liquid version of the strobing stick. it comes in two shades: Light iridescent and medium nude glow. I absolutely love the packaging and the applicator nozzle of this product, it helps prevents excessive usage of the product. 

According to maybelline, it has a

Maybelline master strobing liquid: Medium nude glow
Micro-fine pearl formula which boosts glow for a subtle sheen; this translucent liquid can be mixed with foundation for an all-over illuminated look or used sparingly on particular features to add dimension such as the bridge of the nose, cheekbones and under-brow arch.
