{Maybelline Kohl Liner by Color Show}

Oh hey there set of gorgeous pencil liners that are beautifully pigmented. I mean not that I’m surprised but Maybelline’s releases over the past year have been knocking it out of the beauty ball park and I’m all over these.

These pencils glide like butter over your skin so you won’t need to press down too hard on your lids to get that opaque coverage. Whether you’re enhancing your eyes with Graphite Grey, elevating your smokey eye with Ultra Black or adding a little Edgy Emerald to your beach babe look, these pencils will add impact with very little work.

{Pretty Pencils}

I’m a little too excited to play with the shade Chambray Blue (baby blueish), maybe I’ll wear it above a black liquid cat flick…

{My favourite shades}

Green Envy, Graphite Grey and Marvellous Maroon (over Chocolate Chip it creates a total Teddy dupe…) are my favourite day-to-day shades that pack a helluva punch. I can’t help but have a mad weakness for this deep green shade. It’s SO beautiful right?

The pencils are available at mass retailers from next week and they’re ONLY $5.99. I can’t even. The value  is beyond awesome. These were a press send, but I’m going need to a back up of my favs…

{Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs}

I’m not one to rant and rave and review an entire collection of products without a particular story in mind but this lipstick collection just had to take centre stage. Despite my intitial hesitations about the nude collection to precede, I’m so impressed…

{Good enough to eat…}

You know me. I hate nudes.  I very rarely wear nudes cuz I’m a bold girl all the way but since I’ve started making more effort with eye shadow, I’ve been becoming more accepting.

Then the Maybelline Buffs collection happened and I’m all over it.

{High pigment creams}

A collection of high-pigment, caramel, vanilla and berry, creamy lipsticks that offer the second edition to last year’s Colour Sensational Vivids. If you’ve followed the blog since then you’ll know I was so mad about those lipsticks I wore them all through Fashion Week…

{The swatches}

While I do love all of these colours I obviously can’t pull them all off – I’d rather not look washed out. The nudes offer a range of colours to suit a variety of skin tones and for my olive (okay now grey/yellow) complexion I prefer the caramel/berry tones.
