After the huge success of the Baby Lips range, Maybelline has expanded the line into a pore perfecting primer. From what I can gather online, Baby Skin is designed to smooth out the skin and hide open pores. I think it might be quite similar to Benefit’s Porefessional. It hasn’t arrived in the UK yet but there is a waiting list on the Boots website, so I’m guessing its arriving soon.
I have incredibly dry lips all year, I don’t need incredibly intensive lip balm just in the winter, I need it everyday. I have too many lips balms but I couldn’t resist another Baby Lips. I love the packing and the design and the product within is really good.
Intense Care is one the three which has no tint, it just leaves the lips with a nice a sheeny finish. It has a scent but honestly don’t know what it is, it just smells scented and it has SPF20. It is just a lip balm so there’s not much too say but it is very moisturising and it’s stopping my lips from getting chapped. It’s only £2.99 and I think all of the Baby Lips are worth the money. I love them and I can’t recommend them enough.
Baby Lips have finally came to UK, these were perhaps the most hyped up product of the year and I’ve got to say I wasn’t disappointed, they are as good as I hoped. There are six Baby Lips, three are tinted (Pink Punch, Peach Kiss and Cherry Me) and three are non-tinted SPF20 lip balms (Repair, Hydrate and Minty Fresh). I wanted Pink Punch and Peach Kiss but Peach Kiss seems to be sold out everywhere I look.
Some of the reviews I read declared these the best lip balms in the world and others said they were a bit of a let down. I think Pink Punch is very hydrated and comfortable on the lips and I think the colour payoff is pretty good. This is a proper bubblegum pink shade which can be applied really lightly for a little bit of colour but you can layer it up for a bright pink statement lip. Lastly, I love the cute packaging and it smells amazing, just like a sweet shop and I’m definitely going to get the other five.
May is nearly over and I’ve discovered and rediscovered so many brilliant products. These are my favourites.
Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara
This has became my absolute favourite mascara, I’ve been wearing everyday since I got it. It’s really buildable and lasts all day without any smudges and flakes and I love the flexible wand because it helps zig-zag motion.
Bourjois Cream Blush in Nude Velvet
I rarely wear blushers, I go through phasing of wearing it but I have a loads of blushers. Cream blush is my favourite, it’s so easy to apply, it’s impossible to mess up. This is the easier blusher to apply, it blends really easily and the peachy colour is really pretty and perfect for the summer.
I’ve really got into nail art, I always wanted to give it try but I never got round to buying the dotting tools but now I have them, I find it really enjoyable.
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
I bought this last year when it launched and I used it, liked it and then forgot about it. It’s a really good all round foundation and the lightest shade, Lightest Porcelain is really pale, cool toned shade.
The jewel in Maybelline’s crown are they’re mascaras, their renowned for their mascaras.
Mega Plush is different to their other mascaras, it’s a gel mousse formula, I thought this meant it would be a bit watery and smudgy but it’s not, lashes are left very soft looking, not crispy.
The wand is traditional bristles not plastic ones, which I like and it’s quite a big brush but it doesn’t seem as big as the Rocket.
It doesn’t flake or smudge which is great. The formula means it’s very easy to layer, one coat gives subtle definition but it layers really well for a more dramatic look. I’ve applied numerous coats and it never clumps and I think this is because of the spacing and the size of the bristles on the brush, the bristles are too close together and the bristles are different sizes.
The brush is unlike anything I’ve tried before because it’s flexible. I think the flexibility of the wand makes it really easy to zig-zag through the lashes and it makes really easy to hold the brush at the roots of the lashes and reach in the inner corners.
Overall, I like this mascara.
Have you tried it, what do you think?
It’s currently on offer in Boots for £5.99, usual price is £7.99, http://www.boots.com/en/Maybelline-Volum-Express-The-Mega-Plush-Mascara_1321332/
Maybelline are best known for their mascaras, they have tons of different kinds and one of their most mascaras is the cult classic the Greatest Lash Mascara.
The latest one claims to give eight times the volume without clumps and in super fast time. I was quite disappointed by this mascara, I found it quite clumpy and I felt the huge wand made application a little awkward and messy, more product ended up on my eyelids and under my eyes than on my lashes. I also thought it smudged really quickly, I had panda eyes after a couple of hours.
I wasn’t a fan of this mascara, I would go for Max Factor’s Clump Defy (American dupe is Cover Girl Clump Crusher).
