What's New with Maybelline

Hi Guys,

All the new American Maybelline goodies have finally landed! From new a Mascara to the famous Baby Lips. I was so excited to see them here after hearing so many things about them for the I'd say past year for the colour tattoo's!
Maybelline do know how to do a great product, So I have high hopes for these new guys on the block! Especially as Im already quite a fan of the original Baby Lips.
 Lash Sensational Multiplying Mascara - £7.99 HERE
The newest Mascara launch for Maybelline, who do have a pretty good reputation for their mascaras and dare I say it, I haven't actually tried one before! It's a new brush for the brand, it is a curved fanned wand, with both longer and shorter bristles to catch every lash. On the outside curve the bristles are also longer, then the inside is shorter. 

It is aimed towards giving lots of volume to long lashes, I actually found however that it gave more length than volume. I think it is mainly depending on the amount of product you have on the brush. The brush is also plastic, which you will either love or hate. I don't mind it too much, but I do prefer a bristle brush. I found using the shorter side, then brushing through with the longer bristles helped, It also doesn't seem to clump which is a win!
Color Tattoo Leather Effect - £4.99 HERE
I must admit I haven't tried many of the original paint pots, just due to the fact that the shade range wasn't my favourite array of colours. This is where the new Leather Effect Color Tatoo's step in, they have been around in America for quite a while and now they've finally arrived in the UK!

I can only see two shades available over here just now and America has five. However I do think we got two of the nicest ones available! We have Creamy Beige, which is a light tan shade and Vintage Plum, a muted grey toned dark purple. They are both matte in finish but very creamy due to its gel formula. Once they set, they set though and they really do not budge if you dont want them to!
Dr Rescue Baby Lips - £3.49 HERE
Now Baby Lips are another love or hate product it seems, I intact love them and was very excited to see the Dr Rescue ones had reached our shores! They are a medicated balm, they all have a menthol taste, so its mainly down to which shade you prefer than flavour. There is also a clear in the range as well as four colours. I went for Coral Crave, a light orange, which is almost peachy on myself. Then I have Soft Berry, a deeper rose shade. 
Dr Rescue Baby Lips and Leather Colour Tatoo
(Swatches: Top to Bottom - Creamy Biege, Vintage Plum, Coral Crave and Soft Berry)

Overall the mascara is lovely once you get to grips to the apparently ten different types of bristle on it! I think I may also have a new Baby Lip favourite variation, they seem to be more moisturising than the originals! Plus I just cant help but love a great matte cream shadow, especially in these shades. Can Creamy Beige beat my beloved MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot? Well Maybelline have done it again...

  4. Lovely new releases! I think the matte color tattoos sound like they have the potential to be incredible and baby lips are always nice! The mascara wand sounds totally unique too.

  7. I love the mascara but agree with you - it adds more length than volume. Haven't tried the new Baby Lips yet, not too sure about the smell of them compared to the ones they brought out last year
