This was the first product that caught my eye. The baby pick packaging and chizzled edge definitely did it for me. From just taking a look by not actually experimenting with the formular yet, it is a thick consistency and feels as if it should give my lashes lots of definition. It has a nice thick wand and I approve of the size. They have also released a waterproof version in the same range in a baby blue tube.
What I don't like about this mascara (only down to personal preference) is the scent. This is actually a scented product - how crazy! It smells exactly of Malibu (the alcoholic drink) which TOTALLY puts me off but that's by the by. Some people are going to LOVE the coconut scented product but it has too much of that alcoholic twinge for me to crack. It's also a very sweet coconut scent instead of nutty coconut - if you get my drift HAHA.
Eye brow Definer Pencil (£7.99)
Straight away I am happy. I will ALWAYS appreciate an eyebrow pencil which has a spoolie and this one is staring at me through the translucent lid. At the other end of the pencil, the crayon is on a twisty lid instead of being a pencil that needs sharpening (super convenient) and is moulded into a kite shape. Not too sure of the shape of the head but we can work with it and experiment later on. Maybelline have released this in 4 different shades, blonde, soft brown, medium brown and deep brown. They are consistent with the baby pink packaging however this feels slightly more cheap and plasticky compared to the Mascara. But as long as the product does a good job right?!
Shadow & Highlighting Palette (£11.99)
PERFECT timing to release such georgous warm eye-shadow shades Maybelline, you have made me proud. I wasn't drawn to this palette. It was just 'okay' but after looking more into it I have adjusted slightly. I love how you can create many different looks with this but straight away if you're not as adventurous with make-up you are presented with the two 'sides' of this palette. The slightly warmer shades and slightly cooler and more glam shades, which makes it magical for having a day time and night time look ALL IN ONE PALETTE. Now i'm making myself more excited...
The left hand sides orangey, bronzey toned shades are screaming summer and the way the product is presented in the wavy pattern connotes sea, sand and sun - I WANT TO BE ON HOLIDAY!
After having a few little swatches, the shades are sparkly and creamy and if you look up close you can tell they are going to be a super nice consistency. I can't wait to get testing these!
I am impressed - glad to have gotten my hands on these products and I can't wait to test them out. I must also mention that as drug store products, I can't complain on the prices - they aren't anything to my surprise and you can always be guaranteed to get good quality for the money you spend on drug store products. Some times buying a luxury product that can cost 5x the amount is just has good as your typical favourite drugstore brand!
