It was 2 months ago that I opened up two new mascara to use. First is the Marc Jacobs Omega Lash. You see, I like mascara that is thick, slightly dry, gives me volume and length. This one? Does nothing. So I rummage through my medium-size Sephora at home and happily took out the Laura Mercier Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara from 2016 Holiday Collection. Now, this one I love. It’s volumizing, it’s lengthen my lashes making them looking va va voom. I left it untouched for a week to let the formula dry out a bit and it’s perfect. Love it until one rainy day. I became a panda. That few drops of rain on my lashes melt the mascara so it was all over my lid when I blinked. Besides the fact that it’s not waterproof, there’s nothing else I hate about the mascara. So I was itching to open up another brand new mascara and this Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel was on my vanity table for the longest time. It came together with the entire set of The Loaded Bolds lipstick, for which you already know I love 🙂
I received a rather very surprised parcel one fine day just as I was reversing my car out and it was from Maybelline. I was a curious cat, ripping the courier plastic off to see what Maybelline sent me and I am not prepared for this. 12 pieces of brand new The Loaded Bolds lipsticks that was just released. All 12 new shades! With funky shades that I’ve been eyeing! Surprised, yes. Excited, hella yes!
At one glance I thought these Maybelline The Loaded Bolds lipstick are a matte lipstick. I have no idea why I think so. Maybe because every lipstick that was released to the market are either matte or liquid lipstick lol. Hey, I have no complain. You know how much I love my matte lipstick 😉 . In fact, The Loaded Bolds is a creamy lipstick that offers vibrant and full-spectrum shades as seem from my Instagram post here, here, and a look I did yesterday.
If you have been following Street Love long enough you will know that I love buying American products even before I am a beauty blogger. Now that I am one, I secretly like to source for American makeup products that are not available in Malaysia. There is something about owning products which no one or less people own that makes it even more special. Watching lots of Youtube videos does not help. It makes me crave for even more new makeup releases, hoping one fine day these brands will hit Malaysia market.
The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer is a concealer which I have been eyeing and been wanting to buy for years. It is THE concealer that has gotten so many ravings from all over the world. Everyone said this is the best affordable drugstore concealer. Everytime I saw an online seller listed it, I wanted to buy so badly. I didn’t because of the price. I cannot justify paying RM45 – RM55 for a Maybelline concealer. That, and the fact that I have so many other concealer at home.
Everyone know Maybelline’s rhythmic slogan “Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline”. We even secretly sing with the tagline 😀 . The slogan was implemented as Maybelline’s advertising slogan in 1991 and it has been the same since until 2016. This year, Maybelline adopted a brand new inspirational tagline “Make It Happen” to instill confidence among young women. It carries a powerful message behind it to spur young women to be on their journey to pursue their dreams.
One thing I hate about Facebook is that they are changing the way news feed appears on our timeline so frequently that I’m constantly missing new updates from the pages I’m following. Maybelline Malaysia has been teasing us with their new matte liquid lipstick and all that does not appear on my timeline. I only found out that Maybelline has a new Velvet Matte liquid lipstick when I was browsing through Guardian Malaysia Facebook page for their weekly promotions (love Guardian promo). Coincidently, it was the last day of Velvet Matte promo price of RM26.15 that I just had to drive to a Guardian to get it. Before that, I google for swatches online and concluded that I would get MAT 12 only as the rest of the colors are just too bright for everyday wear. For me that is 😀
Maybelline Velvet Matte by Color Sensational is a liquid-to-matte velvet finish liquid lipstick. What this means is, this is a lipstick in liquid form that would set to a velvet matte finishing. The concept is pretty similar to Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick which is like the queen of all liquid lipstick. I personally like matte lipstick, not so much of a liquid lipstick fan due to the hassle application but if it’s gonna set to a matte finishing, count me in!
