Maybelline Colour Sensational Shine Gloss



After trying to stop myself from spending anymore money on things I didn't necessarily need, I gave in and decided to buy not one, but two of the new Maybelline Colour Sensational Shine Gloss' (£6.19). I ended up buying them in Cashmere Rose and Glorious Grapefruit. Cashmere Rose is a light pink with no shimmer and Glorious Grapefruit is a peachy colour which again has no shimmer. When I look for a lipgloss I don't like them to have shimmer in as I feel like I'm back in my Year 9 days when my foundation was too dark (and also had some shimmer particles in it as well, FYI) and I wore the shiniest and the one with the most glitter and shimmer lipgloss.

I did in fact have one of these years back when they were known as Cream Gloss' as opposed to Shine Gloss which they are named under now. However, although I loved the colour, the stickiness irritated me somewhat awful. On a windy day wearing this lipgloss was your worst nightmare as when a gush of wind came your way you got a mouthful of your own hair sticking to the lipgloss. These new formulas don't do this, they do offer a high shine finish but none of the stickiness. I couldn't help myself when it come to buying just the one as all the shades Maybelline offer are gorgeous, I may have to return to their stand and one might accidentally slip into my basket...

What do you think of the new Maybelline Shine Gloss'?

Best For: Bottom Lashes


You guys know just how obsessed I am with Maybelline's Falsies mascara so I'm quite surprised myself that I'm blogging about a different mascara. Now I'm not a huge fan of this one I'll admit, for both sets of lashes I don't think it does a very good job at all. Yes, the colour is great and is really bold but it doesn't curl my lashes or give them any extra volume at all.

So, why am I blogging about this? Well, I've always found some mascaras make your bottom lashes go really clumpy and too thick so the other day I was rummaging around in my drawers and found this. One thing this is good at is making your lashes look natural but just enhanced. Putting this on my bottom lashes was simple as the wand is incredibly small, again making it perfect for bottom lash application. I normally like to stick to a small amount of products so to add another mascara when it's not really needed is a bit tedious but it looks good so I can't really complain!

What do you make of this mascara?
