REVIEW: MAYBELLINE LIP FLUSH BITTEN LIP

Thanks Sociolla for sending me these new
fabulous lipsticks to review.

Featuring three gradient shades in one lipstick
bullet, this lipstick will surely help those who wants to achieve that
Korean-inspired ombre lips look. Without the hassles of having to cover the
whole lips with foundation and powder, then applied two, or even three lipstick
shades from different bullets, these lipsticks are killing it in terms of
practicality.

Let’s swatch them, shall we?

From Top to Bottom order: OR 01, RD 01, RD 03, PK
01

Verdict:

  • Texture: ultra creamy and glides smoothly on
    bare lips (sans lip balm).
  • Scent: fruity like melon. They claimed to use
    colors that are infused with natural food grade pigments (but still…avoid
    licking them).
  • Final result: it looks glossy on the lips, but
    surprisingly not sticky. Subtle sheen and not shimmery, it gives this naturally
    stained look.
  • Durability: need to reapply after drinking and/or
    eating.

How they looked on my lips. RD1 and PK1 are almost similar in term of shades. If I have to pick my favorite shades will be RD3, the darkest of all four shades that they sent me.

ALL ABOUT THE BASE

REVIEW: MAYBELLINE FIT ME RANGE

I believe in the power of base makeup. I wasn’t born with a perfect porcelain skin, so I depend (a lot) on my base. Foundation, concealer, and powder are totally my best friend. When Maybelline Fit Me Range was launched, I was super excited because they carry two kind of foundation, Dewy + Smooth for Normal to Dry Skin and Matte + Poreless for Oily Skin. And of course, having an oily skin, I love the Matte + Poreless one.

Cons: they didn’t come with pump, so be careful when pouring it.

So, what’s the difference between both foundation?

I tested on blotting paper as I always does with other foundation of mine, and check that out. The right one is the Dewy + Smooth, look at oil that surrounds the foundation. Meanwhile, the Matte + Poreless on the left side, doesn’t have that much oil surround it.

Let’s move on to concealer, shall we?

I love the wand, seriously! it picked up the right amount of concealer to cover one zit. The texture is just right, not too watery nor too thick and blended well when applied with finger or beauty blender. Choose the lighter shade for highlight and the correct shade for your skin tone to conceal everything, from blemishes, spots and dark circles.

Last but not least, FIT ME POWDER.

Like the foundation, they come with two choices, for SET + SMOOTH for normal to dry skin and MATTE + PORELESS for normal to oily skin. Comes with sponge and mirror, also perfect for touch ups.

My tips to look super natural: use Matte + Poreless foundation and end with SET + SMOOTH powder. It won’t give you that dead matte look (see my pic below).

For the coverage, I might say that it doesn’t fall on heavy category. Concealer is still a must. However, to cover big pores and stay true matte for hours, it did a very good job. Totally recommended.

And of course, I also try the DEWY + SMOOTH foundation, end with Matte + Poreless Powder to make it less shiny.

What do you think of the comparison? I believe the Dewy + Smooth Foundation gives more healthy look, even though I am not a big fan of the texture. More liquidy than the Matte + Poreless Foundation and it feels stickier. But I love the final result after I set with Matte + Poreless Powder. I believe the powder help to minimize my big pores as well as toning down the stickiness of the Dewy + Smooth Foundation. As for the coverage, this also needs concealer to help cover things up.

Final Verdict: these Fit Me range is definitely my new favorite. I’ll mix things up depends on my skin condition which can be super oily at one moment and dry the other. I will repurchase them because I use base makeup every day, it sounds silly to splurge on high end ones.

STYLISHLY HAPPENING

Earlier this week, I was invited to MAYBELLINE event, MAKE POP OF COLOR HAPPEN.

The latest makeup trend from New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2017, people!

For the last seven years, Maybelline New York has been the Official Makeup Sponsor for New York Fashion Week. And for those who always think that it’s too hard to apply the runway makeup trend for everyday, you’re wrong!

Make Pop of Color Happen was inspired by New York City which is full of energy, very dynamic and so stylish. Flawless skin, bold brow and playful lips are three of that very trend, which is suitable for us, Indonesian women.

I was so excited at the event, because they also launched their latest products.

LET’S GET DOLL UP!

Hey dolls! Sorry for no blog post lately, as I’ve been busy with my day job. But I’m back!!! This time, I’m going to inform you about the latest products from MAYBELLINE NEW YORK.

Imagine how happy I was, came back from work one night, and found this bright pink kit on my mail. 

So, what’s inside?

Four latest products from Maybelline New York, SUPER BB CUSHION, MAGNUM BARBIE MASCARA, THE BLUSHED NUDES AND VIVID MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK. 

Also in the kit, a little book showcasing two looks of DOLL IT UP (created by Ryan Ogilvy, official makeup artist for Maybelline New York Indonesia), featuring two Indonesian superstars, Pevita Pearce and Velove Veloxia. Yes, both of them are Maybelline New York Indonesia’s brand ambassador. Ryan created Sassy Doll look for Pevita and Sweet Doll look for Velove which remind me a lot of Barbie’s makeup. Lots of pink ahead, dolls!

I just opened the box, so I haven’t got the chance to review them yet, but I will soon. Meanwhile, here are some product infos from their release.

BB CUSHION: Wow, do Koreans influenced us all. Maybelline claimed that this will cover pores perfectly and give semi-dewy finish look. 

THE BLUSHED NUDES: The 12 shades of eyeshadows look prettier in real life. I believe this will bring out the feminine side in me (LOL). 

MAGNUM BARBIE MASCARA: This supposed to make our lashes look Barbie like, with its’ special brush and texture.

VIVID MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK: There are actually 10 shades available and I’m pretty sure that I’m going to love them. Hello, they are matte and liquid. What else can I ask for?
