Other // A Small, Insignificant Maybelline Haul

I really didn't want to call this post a haul as I only have three items to share with you. I could have quite easily bought more, especially as make-up in Boots is currently 3-for-2 which does persuade me to buy more than I initially wanted, which I guess is the whole point so well done Boots, your little ways of making me spend more money really works! In fact, I only went into Boots to buy some hayfever tablets. I ended up walking out with two lipsticks and a contour stick and strangely, no hayfever tablets. I must have got carried away browsing the make-up aisle although let's face it, it is easy done.

Everything I bought was from Maybelline which surprised me as I really can't remember the last time I bought anything from them. I can't recall actually owning any Maybelline make-up which is really strange considering I seem to buy everything every other brand has to offer! 

The first two items I bought were the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks in Nude Flush and Electric Pink. I first saw these in America back in February and I remember I was really unsure about them. I swatched them all on my hand in the store but I didn't see a shade I particularly liked so I didn't bother buying any but now I am really on that liquid lipstick hype so I am looking forward to seeing how they fare between all of the various other matte liquid lipsticks I own. And I own a lot. 

Finally I bought the Maybelline Master Contour V-Shape Duo Stick. It looks pretty scary and intimidating in its little stick with one side being the contour and the other being the highlight side so it will be interesting to see how it translates onto the skin. I bought the lightest shade they offer but you can get a darker shade if you would prefer. I'm not too sure how I am going to blend this out yet. The directions say to blend in with your fingers but I'm not sure if a Beauty Blender would suit the job better. Any tips greatly welcomed!

  1. I bought the liquid lipsticks from them the other day and was so disappointed. Really unhappy with them, they just don't dry matte like I want them too! Hopefully you get along better with them than I did!

  2. Ouuhhh super interested to see what you think of the liquid lipsticks! I've put off buying them because I'm unsure as well. The contour stick is kind of odd... I don't generally apply my contour and highlight so closely together - where would blush go?!

  3. I read a couple reviews about these, I would love to see your point of view and some swatches. Electric pink looks like a fun colour to use for summer! :)

  10. I absolutely love the Contour Stick, I've actually done a whole post on contouring for pale skin using it, but I find the Real Techinques Contour brush just blends it right out. This combination gives me cheekbones I've been longing for :)

  17. I'm a bit scared to try a cream contour but that shade seems light enough to work with fair skin!

  18. Oo Boot's 3 for 2 is back on? I'd love to try the Maybelline matte lipsticks as I tried the NYX ones recently but was a little disappointed with how drying they were. I'd love to see how these compare.

  20. I've been tempted by those liquid lipsticks, recently and I love the two shades you've chosen! I'm sitting on the fence when it comes to the contour/highlight stick though, as I think it's quite gimmicky and would be a bit of a faff to use, compared to my regular routine.
