When it comes to high end make up, I seem to be aware of every last blusher formulation and eye shadow shade being released way before it even hits the counters. With drugstore however, you blink and totally new products appear before your very eyes. That’s what it felt like when I was chilling in a Maybelline lounge last week anyway and as all the shiny new things were mightily exciting I thought I should give you a bit of a run down.
Maybelline Colour Drama Velvet Lip Pencil | Dupes for the Nars lip crayons at a teeny £4.99. Pigmented, creamy and long lasting, it’s no wonder ‘nude perfection’ has already made it home with me. Cheeky.
Master Kajal Kohl Liner | Liner that doesn’t need a silly sized sharpener? I’m sold. Add in the fact that they glide on like a dream and come in an exceptionally cool range of colours and the shelves will be sold out too.
Maybelline Colour Elixir | A new release I actually did know about, these have caused a fair amount of hype in the US already. It takes a seriously good lip product to move me from bold matte finishes though so my thoughts are tbc.
Master Smoky Shadow Pencil | The original black master smoky is on my holy grail hot list so it’s no wonder I’m going gaga for these bang on trend navy blue offerings. I blame Cheryl’s sexy smudgey blue X Factor eyes for that one.
Electro Baby Lips | They probably don’t do a whole lot more than the originals or any other lip balm, but the packaging is super cool and they come in at just £2.99 which makes them great for a budget beauty bag.
