Maybelline SuperStay Event

Wednesday, 28 May 2014

Last week I headed down to London for a few events, one of which was the Maybelline event, showcasing some of their amazing new products. It was held in a stunning hotel close to Embankment and the room the event was held in had a really airy, fresh vibe. There was food aplenty on offer, including gorgeous pastel marble macarons, lots of fruit and even some cute mini scones. 


The event was all about some of the new launches from Maybelline, all of which are super exciting, and based around their SuperStay products - predominantly new lip products and nail products, all of which focus on being really long-lasting. This is obviously perfect for this time of year when our makeup more often than not goes walk about in the heat! 

I love how Maybelline have nailed the key trends for spring and summer by incorporating both 'bright sparks' and 'cool pastels' into their new launches. As you know, pastels are my forte and I think it's great Maybelline are releasing two gorgeous new pastel nail colours, both of which are completely stunning. There's 'Pink in the Park', a beautiful baby pink, and 'Uptown Blue', the most incredible powder blue colour. Blue and pink pastels are my ultimate favourite so I was very pleased to walk away with these two colours to try. I'll be blogging about them soon! 

As well as the pastels, they are of course getting in on the key trend for summer - brights, by releasing a selection of bright nail colours and lip colours. There was a trio of brighter-than-bright nail colours on offer at the event, with 'Orange Punch', a gorgeous bright orange, 'Lime Me Up', a stunning intense green, and 'Pink Volt', the ultimate bright pink. The bright products that really captured my attention, however, were the new lip colours from Maybelline. 'Flash of Fuschia', 'Burst of Coral', 'Neon Pink' and 'Red Rays' are the four new lip colours on offer, all of which are super bright, super pigmented and super long-lasting. I tried the ultra bright pink colour on at the event and immediately fell in love - I need to get my hands on it for summer! 

I had a fantastic time at the event and absolutely loved checking out all the amazing products. It was great to have a bit of a pamper, a peruse of all their new launches, as well as catching up with some of my favourite bloggers.

I am so excited about these new products from Maybelline and will be blogging about them asap. Which bits have caught your eye from the pictures above? Let me know!
