We’ve gushed over Katy Kat Gloss with Maybelline and Katy Perry. Who could resist those adorable kitty cat toppers with a unicorn’s ransom of lip colors? (click this link) to see the entire collection)! But Maybelline has some new Eye-centric products in their Total Temptation Collection and they tempted us, for real! Some of the eye products were being given out at New York Fashion Week, but the Advice Sisters Beauty and Style snagged our own pieces, thanks to Maybelline.
A Lot To Cover!
There is a lot to cover new from Maybelline, so we’ve selected some of our very favorites to suggest to you, but go to the Maybelline Web Site to see all the glam newness.
Total Temptation (for Eyes)
Eyebrows, & Lashes:
Defined eyebrows are a trend that is staying strong. If your brows need color and definition, the new dual-ended Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil (SRP. $7.99) gives you what you need to tame them.
There are four colors for medium blonde to dark in a soft, slim, swivel-up pencil. The teardrop shaped-bristle tip gives you the perfect size to tame unruly flyaways.
Also in my photo above is the new Total Temptation Washable Mascara (SRP. $9.49 and there’s also a waterproof version). Very Black, Blackest Black and Brownish Black.
The brush is tapered but ample, so for a daytime look, you might only need one coat. FYI: if you’re doing more than one coat do not let it dry between applications!
A whipped formula infused with coconut extract help pamper your lashes. Another thing that distinguishes this mascara from other Maybelline mascaras, is the slightly floral/coco-nutty scent (not intrusive, just kind of a nice touch–totally tempting).
Add a bit of shimmery, eye brightening allure with one of the 5 new LastingDrama Light Eyeliner Pencils ($5.99). Apply the liner along the upper and lower lash line. To open up your eye even more, dot the pencil at the inner corners of the eye
Light Up Your Lids!
Maybelline makeup palettes are genius! They’re always on trend and a great bargain. So we’re loving the Total Temptation Collection palette (middle of our photo above). The other two equally stunning palettes are from Maybelline’s City Kits Collection.
It has 8 eyeshadows a highlighter/blush and a highlighter. They range from warm and earthy to neutral, cool and intense to make day or night looks with one palette.
FYI: the colors are silky soft –you could apply them with a fingertip, or of course, with a brush (not included). If you’re not into highlighting, you can use them as another shadow (it works)!
How to Apply :
Step 2. Shade in the entire lid.
Step 3. Contour crease of eye.
Step 4. Line around the eye on lash line.
Step 5. Brush highlighter on the cheekbones, cupids bow and down center of the nose.
There are so many more new products! Our Next Feature focuses on statement lips and long wear foundation. Don’t Miss It!
