Maybelline Get the Look – ‘Dark and Sultry Lip’

Hello everyone! I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA for such a long time – a lot of personal stuff has taken place recently, but the good news is, I’m back with lots of reviews of new products at the ready!

The lovely team at Maybelline NY UK sent me some more goodies and the challenge to recreate one of three halloween-themed looks…

Maybelline SquadI, of course, jumped at the chance to recreate the dark and sultry look with a deep intense lip and gentle eye makeup, with a little twist – the addition of winged liquid liner.

The eye makeup is a combination of a shimmery pink, glittery silver and smokey brown shade from my Maybelline ‘The Rock Nudes’ palette, the Lasting Drama Gel Pen Black Excess eyeliner and Colossal Spider Effect mascara. I’ve already shared some details on the Rock Nudes palette, but the liner and mascara are new additions to my makeup bag.

The mascara is perfect at doing what it says on the tin… creating a spidery finish, which creates a theatrical look. For daily use, I’d choose a more ‘volume boosting’ mascara, but if you’re looking to create a dramatic look this halloween, this is the ideal mascara for the occasion.

The lasting drama eyeliner has a rubber nib and releases a thick, waterproof liner in just ‘one-click’ – I’m definitely going to be using this product more in the following weeks, as the first use has really impressed me. Note: this eyeliner is very resistant. I even struggled to shift the consistency with a thorough wet wipe scrub.

To create the dramatic lip look, I teamed the 968 Rich Ruby Matte and 978 Burgundy Blush matte lipsticks, for the perfect plum-like shade, with a red tint on top.

I’d love to hear what you think of this look! Let me know your thoughts and product questions in the comment space below.
