I received these products compliments of Maybelline New York, all opinions are mine alone.
Metallics seem to be all the rage lately, and I am totally into it! Metallic nails, lips, and eyes, oh my! So needless to say, when I got a package from Maybelline full of all their latest metallic goodies I was as giddy as a school girl. A lot of the lipstick shades are pretty bold and different, but I think if you’re confident you can pull anything off. Or if nothing else, they would be great for Halloween makeup!
Most of the Matte Metallic Lipsticks are very pigmented and fairly creamy. They are described as matte, but they don’t really dry down like a typical matte. They just have more of a flat finish and they stay comfortable for about 4-5 hours. Some of the darker ones leave a little stain behind on my lips as well. My favorite shades (and the most wearable) are Hot Lava, Copper Rose, Molten Bronze, and Copper Spark. I also kind of love Serpentine, but I’m not sure if I would wear it out. $7.49
Next, I have the Master Precise Ink Metallic Liners which come in 7 shimmering shades. The colorful cap screws off to reveal a thin, felt tip applicator. You DO have to shake these up before use, which I didn’t do at first and the formula was thin and watery. However, once I shook them up, they were much more pigmented. I didn’t do any eye looks because I am particularly bad at eye liner, but these stayed put for a good 6 hours. I happened to rub my eyes a few times and they did flake off in some areas. The colors are so fun though and I love Galactic Metal, Teal Galaxy, and Stellar Sand! $7.99
Lastly, I have the Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Gold. This is the only shade of Master Chrome highlighter available. It is a soft, warm gold color with a metallic shimmer finish. Typically, I go for cooler toned highlight colors, but I really love the way this one looks on me! It is a little shimmery, but not too over the top. It lasts me a full day, which for me is about 8-10 hours before I take my makeup off. $9.99
Overall, some of these products are kind of out there when it comes to color, but I think that they are fun and great quality. My favorites are the lipsticks and the highlighter! Do you think you would wear any of these bold shades?
