Today I am bringing you a closer look at the recently launched Maybelline summer collection called Bleached Neons. The collection is pretty extensive, it includes 2 limited edition shades of Color Tattoo’s eyeshadows, two LE lipsticks, lipglosses, bronzers, blush sticks and a few shades of summery gorgeous nail colors.
I picked up four pieces from this collection. The Color Tattoo’s are the absolute star of this collection for me. Two LE shades, a beautiful shimmery silver blue duo-chrome in Sunwashed Sky, and another duo-chrome, Shimmering Sea, which is a golden mossy green shade. Both of the colors are stunning. They come in little pots, in a form of a cream eyeshadow that applies very easily to the lid. You can apply it with your finger or with a small fluffy eyeshadow brush. The staying power is excellent so once you apply the eyshadow, it is not going anywhere. Those cream eyeshadows can be worn on their own but they also create a great base for other powder eyeshadows, if you feel like experimenting a little more.
Out of the two Color Whisper lipsticks I picked a peachy shade in 005 Peach Punch. The formula of the Color Whisper is one of my favorite drugstore lipstick formula. It applies very smooth due to it’s creamy consistency, the color payoff is excellent and it lasts a good few hours. The lipstick is a little glossy but doesn’t have any shimmer in it.
The last product that I picked up from this collection is a Color Elixir lipgloss in 025 Radiant Raspberry. It’s a beautiful mauve pink color that applies very easily to the lips, it’s opaque but doesn’t feel tacky. I think it’s a great dupe for a more expensive Dior Fluid Stick product that Dior launched recently.
All the pieces from the collection compliment each other so with just those products you can create a full summer face makeup look that will look fresh and elegant. Just add a little bit of bronzer to your cheeks or some coral blush and you’re ready for a day at the beach or a romantic seaside walk. Each product from this collection retails for less than $10 so at that price point, with the excellent quality, you cannot go wrong!
Is there anything from this collection that caught your eye? Do you think you’re going to pick up any of the products? Please, let me know! As a special bonus, below you can see a quick makeup look that I created using the pieces from this collection.
