Maybelline | A/W Launches 2016

 If you're familiar with me or my blog/YT channel, you will know that Maybelline is one of my absolute favourite high street/drugstore brands and many Maybelline products have made their way into my everyday make up routine and my list of holy grails. 
So when Maybelline got in touch and invited me to join the #MaybellineSquad, I was over the moon and I was so excited to take the opportunity on board. They've been super generous and sent me a bunch of their new releases to try out and I've been having a ball of a time playing around with the exciting new releases.

Here's a look into what Maybelline has this store this Autumn/Winter.

Maybelline Master Strobing Sticks | £6.99 each
Last season, Maybelline launched their amazing Master Contour sticks, so the new Strobing Sticks are a great follow on product to add to the collection. These comes in two shades; 100 (Light-Iridescent), which is a gorgeous champagne toned highlight, and 200 (Medium-Nude Glow), which is a beautiful shimmery pink colour. Both shades have an amazing colour payoff and their creamy consistency means that it last a lot longer on the skin than a powder highlight would.

Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Lip Paints | £4.99 each
As many of you may know, I am a lipstick hoarder (ain't that the truth) - so seeing the amount of brand new lip products that Maybelline has launched this season (and spoilt me with) blew my mind and when I saw the new Colour Drama Intense Lip Paints, I was really excited to play around with them. The new collection consists of 4 shades; 'Never Bare', which is a lovely peach toned nude, (L-R) 'Fight Me Fuchsia', which is all in the name, 'Vamped Up'; a dark purple, and 'Red-dy or Not', which is a true blood-red shade. This lip paints are incredibly pigmented and have a long lasting power - they lasted a fair few hours before the colour started to budge. One thing I'd be weary of is how thick the formula for these lip paints is - a little bit of product goes a long way, so be careful when handling handling the tube and try not to squeeze out too much product.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks | £6.99 each
You should have seen the look on my face when I opened the parcel and so saw many beautiful new lipsticks in so many gorgeous shades! I love matte lipsticks but I'm always weary of them drying out my lips - this is why the new Colour Sensational Creamy Matte Lipsticks really appealed to me. The new collection consists of 7 new shades in (Top Row L-R) Berry Bossy, Fiery Fuchsia, Midnight Merlot, (Bottom Row L-R) Blushing Pout, Rich Ruby, Orange Danger and Clay Crush.

Maybelline Super Stay 'Metallic Silk' Nail Polishes | £4.50 each
Metallics are majorly on trend this Autumn, so bringing out the new Super Stay Metallic Nail Polishes was a great shout by Maybelline. The collection consists of three shades; 'Rose Veil', 'Silver Satin' and 'Golden Thread' (L-R) - a great mixture of Rose Gold, Silver and Golden shades. I've heard a lot about the Super Stay formula, but this is the first time I've tried it out myself and so far I'm impressed. I feel that a couple of coats is more than enough for an opaque coverage on the nails, and as I'm typing this, I'm on day 4 of wearing 'Golden Thread' with no chips - so I'll report back on how much longer they last. I think these are really classic shades that go on everything and are perfect for special occasions and the festive season.

Maybelline Colour Show 'Preppy Woman' Nail Polishes | £3.99 each
The Colour Show nail polish collection also has a few new additions this season; 'Dear Magenta' (A beautiful berry pink), 'Top Coat Tweedy' (Just look at those sparkles!) and 'Runway Rose' (A gorgeous blush pink nude' (L-R). How pretty are they?

Maybelline Baby Lips Holiday Edition | £2.99 each
I'm someone who always has some kind of lip balm with me at all times and Baby Lips have always been one of my favourites. This season, Maybelline has added two new additions to their collection and they both smell amazing! Not only do they leave your lips kissably soft, but both of the Baby Lips are slightly tinted so they off a bit of colour to your lips. 'Vanilla Cupcake' is named quite apt as it looks and smells like frosting to me - It's a very sweet scent and the formula itself has a light baby pink tint to it. 'Chai Tea Latte' is quite the opposite. It has a slightly spicy scent to it with hints of cinnamon and in colour, it has a dark berry red tint. If you're a fan of Starbucks drinks around this time of year, I think 'Chai Tea Latte' will be right up your street! It's autumn in a lip balm!

Maybelline Rock Nudes Palette | £9.99
I am a HUGE fan of 'The Nudes' eyeshadow palettes by Maybelline! The original Nudes palette is one of my holy grail products which I reach for on a daily basis, and the 'Blushed Nudes' is a lovely selection of shades which have lovely rose gold pigments running through them. The newest to the family is the 'Rock Nudes' palette, which consists of 12 beautiful smokey shades which, mixed and matched, can create lots of different looks. As with the other Nudes palettes, the Rock Nudes are equally as pigmented and a little bit of product goes a long way. 

Maybelline Falsies Push-Up Drama Mascara | £7.99
I love trying out new mascaras and the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara has been my holy grail go to for the last few months. That's why when I came across the new Falsies Push-Up Drama Mascara, I was so eager to try it out. So far, I'm really liking it. I find that the long wand reaches all of my lashes in one stroke, and a couple of coats leave my lashes looking long and luscious and it really helps to pull a look together. 

Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24 Hour Cream Eyeshadows | £4.99 each
Last, but by no means least, there are two new additions to the Colour Tattoo 24 Hour range. I have never tried out the Maybelline Colour Tattos but Oh. My. God. I am OBSESSED with these!
 'Breathless' is a beautiful shimmery champagne shade and 'Fantasy' is a stunning almost-pewter toned dark brown. These cream-gel eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented and a little bit of product goes a long way. They also last for ages on the skin.  If you haven't already, I would really recommend giving the Colour Tattoo's a go - it'll definitely be £4.99 well spent!
