Maybelline Master Drama Chromatic Eyeliner Review

Hi There!

Today I'll be taking a look at Maybelline Master Drama Chromatics eyeliners, in the shades Turquoise Vibe and Purple Light.

They cost me £2.99 each, or would have if I hadn't used my Boots points! The liners come in black pencils with clearly marked lids for their colours. I like the packaging as I found it really easy to store them when I could see what colours they were via the lids, although the lids had a tendency to come off pretty easily.

The liners themselves are very creamy and comfortable to wear, and I LOVE the colours that I bought. I found the texture to be comparable to the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On liners but they didn't last as long throughout the day - they were still there when I got home from my day, but I found that at this point the colour wasn't as vibrant or pronounced as it was once applied. I also found the bright colours pretty difficult to wear on their own, so when I wore them I generally stacked them on top of a black gel wing, like so:

I really like these liners and found them definitely worth the money, I'll be sure to check out the other colours - most particularly the gold, as I'm a sucker for gold eye products!

Amy's Top 5 Autumn/Winter Lip Colours

Hey everyone! Today I'm going to share with you my top 5 A/W lip colours. Let's get started. 

The first lipstick I have here is Kate Moss for Rimmel 107. It is a matte deep red colour. I love this colour and it feels great on the lips for a matte. Lasting power is average, around 2-3 hours with no liner.

This is the L'Oreal Glam Shine Stain Splash in the shade Milady. The colour is a berry purple hue, similar to Rebel that I will show you later. These Stain Splashes are quite possibly my favourite lip products ever! They're super glossy but also long wearing too. I wore the red shade, Juliet, to a party and I only had to touch up once. That was with drinks and all. Love it!

The third lip colour I have here is Ruby Woo by MAC. It is a vivid, blue based red even though in the photo it looks more orange. MAC's Retro Matte formula is the most matte lip product I have ever encountered. As a result, it is slightly drying but I do not mind putting up with this because the staying power is fantastic. I love pairing this with winged liner for a classic look!

This shade is Rebel by MAC. It is a berry fuchsia colour. It is similar to Milady (above) but Rebel is more pink. This is my all time favourite lip shade! I love the colour so much as it's perfect for this time of year. It looks great as an every day shade or you could dress it up for a party. It's a Satin formula so it has a mostly matte finish but it's more moisturising than a full on matte. I can't say enough about this lipstick, it's definitely a staple for me and I will repurchase a hundred times over!

My last lipstick is Dark Side by MAC. This is a new lipstick for me and I haven't actually had a chance to wear it out yet. I love the colour! It's a gorgeous vampy red. It's an Amplified Creme formula which  I've heard nothing but great things about. Amplified Creme lipsticks are supposed to be moisturising, creamy and have great staying power. I can't wait to wear this in December as I can see it looking perfect on snowy days.

So, there you have it! My top 5 A/W lip colours. Please excuse the poorly applied lipstick, I'm not used to seeing my lips this close up.
