There’s no denying that the new season beauty collections are tempting, with their moody, mysterious ways. But autumn and winter will be long enough once they get here, so let’s make the most of our summer brights while the sun still shines.
And brights don’t come better than Maybelline’s latest offerings: super saturated and eye-poppingly bold, these new Master Chromatic eyeliners and Colossal Colour Shock mascaras are fabulous and fun. Not to mention how awesome they look with a tan.
The mascaras, in Electric Blue or Electric Teal, are a brilliant budget pick for anyone who was lusting after Chanel’s gorgeous summer offerings, but couldn’t justify the spend. The collagen enriched formula gives volume and length and the colour payoff is brilliant – especially for €10.75.
For me, though, the eyeliners steal the show. Comparable to the much-loved SuperShock liners from Avon (sadly no longer available in Ireland), these have the most delightfully soft and creamy formula, gliding smoothly on to the eye.
You won’t get a clean, graphic line here, but they’re the bomb for a softly smudged and lived-in eye, with a slightly rock’n’roll type of vibe. In a word, they’re gorgeous – and they’re just €6.99.

Shades include Magic Magenta, Purple Light, Vibrant Gold and Turquoise Vibe – I’d wear ‘em all, but the pink’s the trickiest to carry off, unless you have a darker skintone.
My thoughts are turning to holidays – mine being just a few short weeks away – and these are the perfect holiday fling. What do you think, are you liking, or are you already in an autumnal frame of mind?
