Skincare & Beauty Blog


First of all, I’d like to thank Leanne for
letting me guest post on her blog! Second of all, I’ll introduce myself. Hi,
I’m Katie from! Now, into the post!

I was looking through the Superdrug website
the other day to see whether there was anything new and on the homepage I
stumbled across the new Maybelline collection for the Rio Olympics this year.
The collection consists of Maybelline products that already exist but with Rio
inspired packaging. There were a few things within the collection that I had
wanted to try out for a while now so I decided I would go for one of the
collection of products as it worked out cheaper.

As you can see from above, in the ‘Go Bold’ collection you
receive a ‘Master Sculpt’ in ‘Medium Dark,’ a ‘Colossal Volume’ mascara, an
‘Eraser Eye’ concealer in ‘Nude’ and a ‘Vivid Matte Liquid’ lipstick in ‘Rebel
Red.’ The bundle itself came to £15.99 which I think is pretty good value for four

I ordered the ‘Go Bold’ bundle rather than the ‘Go Bright’
one as I wanted to try the red shade of Vivid Matte rather than the pink shade
in the other bundle. Admittedly this was a bit of a mistake on my part as the
Master Sculpt and the Eraser eye are in darker shades than I would have chosen
myself! However, the Master Sculpt is actually okay in shade! It is not as dark
as the name would suggest and is a perfect shade to contour with. The Eraser
Eye on the other hand is much too dark for me, although I’m going to try and
use it as a liquid bronzer as the consistency is lovely!

I’m yet to try the mascara but as my favourite mascara ever,
the Colossal Volume Cat Eyes, is also from Maybelline I have high hopes for
this one!

The ‘Vivid Matte’ lipstick is gorgeous in consistency, it’s
super smooth and opaque. I would actually say it’s quite similar in consistency
to the Colourpop matte liquid lipsticks. It also has amazing staying power, I
still have stains from swatching it on my arm and this is after three different
makeup removers, so would be great for a night out when you don’t want to have
to keep retouching your lipstick!

The highlight shade in the Master Sculpt is extremely
subtle, in fact I’d say it’s more of a setting powder with a flicker of
highlight than a highlighter you’d want to use on your cheekbones. None the
less, the texture of the product is extremely soft and buttery.

I can’t remember if Maybelline did a collection like this
for the London 2012 Olympics but I think it’s such a nice idea and a great way
to get makeup lovers excited about the forthcoming summer event! If you want to
pick up this collection, it’s available exclusively at Superdrug!

I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you again to Leanne
