Maybelline has kicked-off 2018 with a beautiful selection of new makeup. I’m addicted to the Matte Ink Lipsticks and the highlighters are stunning! There is also a variety of dazzling palettes inspired by chic urban trends and the City Kits are available in 2 pretty color schemes.
Pink Edge is for everyone and I predict that you will use this palette all the time. The shades are neutral yet glamorous with a mix of shimmery gold, champagne, taupe, brown, mauve and silver hues all infused with subtle pink undertones for a scintillating twist. The creamy mattes are nicely balanced with soft shimmers and silky satins to create elegant contrast and definition. You don’t have to be a makeup artist to make these shades work for you, the shadows, blush and highlighter are expertly coordinated for simplicity and radiance. This is a great everyday palette with enough variety to create smokiness and depth for an evening out.
Not only are the City Kits great for travel they are also nicely pigmented, non-creasing and long-lasting. The intensity is buildable and the texture is velvety so you can go from sheer to bold with a few well placed layers.
Urban Light is subtle and soft - reminiscent of spring pastels. The colors are very unique with an icy effect that gives you a pop of iridescence. These aren’t shades I would normally choose for myself but I absolutely love them! The minty green, multidimensional pink and glittering coral blush looks vibrant on the skin.
