Maybelline 3 For 2

Maybelline 3 For 2 

How does Boots manage to suck me in with there offers everytime?! Although saying that I think that I remained pretty controlled only coming back with 3 products! So I thought I would write a little post partly to share with you what I bought and partly to justify my purchases to myself! 

I went over to the Maybelline counter as I wanted to pick up a repurchase of my dream fresh BB cream which I have been using for years now. I'm not going to talk about it very much as I think it is going to be coming up again very soon in a blogpost. But it is a very good BB cream for a very good price. 

Drawn in by the 3 for 2 offer on all Maybelline products I start to have a little look around the eyeshadows when this one caught my eye as a shade I have been looking for for a long time now. One of my most used everyday eyeshadow palettes is the MUA undressed palette. And there is one shade in particular which I find myself reaching for nearly everyday (as can be seen in the photo below!). I really wanted to find a single version of this colour so that I could just have the single colour on it's own making it easier to carry around.

I can't get enough of Shade 3 in the MUA Undressed palette

This is the best picture I could get comparing the two colours, and while they aren't identical I think that they are very similar. The Maybelline shadow is slightly lighter but looks so pretty and natural on my lids. So far I'm very impressed. 

And the final thing that I picked up was this beautiful lipgloss in the shade 550 Gleaming Grenadine. I already have the shade Cashmere Rose and I love it so much. It's been my favourite lipgloss since I bought it and I love how the texture isn't sticky but really moisturising. I picked up this beautiful red shade as I always want to try and wear a red lipstick out but I am always too scared. I thought that this slightly sheerer lipgloss would help me on my way to getting over my fears. I have tried this a few times and I just think it is absolutely beautiful. It's a beautiful letter box shade of red that I think will look perfect as it start to get a little colder and especially around Christmas time.

Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these 3 products and what you though of them. Speak soon xx 


  1. I love Maybelline products! I love the sound of the BB cream and the lip colour is stunning! xx
