Hi everyone! Couple months ago I was invited by Maybelline to the Launching of "Doll It Up" Kit, their latest new products. I was really excited especially knowing that they finally launched their new mascara (I'm a loyal fan of Maybelline Mascara fyi). The Doll Up Kit comes in a bright pink suitcase box which is undeniably cute.
Let's unbox this!
Inside the box:
1. The Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
2. BB Cushion
3. Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick
4. Magnum Barbie Mascara
5. Doll It Up Look Book
The Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
Yay swatches time!

Can anyone get enough neutral eyeshadows? This palette definitely works for everyday wear. The palette has a quite range of colours. There are some really nice shades in the palette. However, I find that some shades are too sheer and not pigmented enough to my personal liking (the colours on the top).
Verdict: The palette could be an affordable alternative for beginners. Some of the shades have weak pigmentation as seen on the swatches, but if you put on primer before putting on the eyeshadows, the primer will do a good job bringing out the beauty of these shadows. I agree that this palette is more for natural and subtle look!
Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick
Yay swatches time!
I got three shades: MAT 11, MAT 10, and MAT 9. (L-R)

Yes, this is by far my no. 1 favourite products from the kit! Can we all please take a moment to see the beautiful pigmentation? Even better, I really enjoy the formula. It is creamy, with a smooth and velvety finish. Some matte lipsticks can become quite drying, but the one from Maybelline feels slightly hydrating, which makes it my top favourite item from the kit. I suggest that wait for awhile so the colour dries better. The colour will come off a bit after drinking or eating.
Verdict: The lipsticks are very wearable and especially great for those with drier lips cause we all know how drying usual matte lipsticks are. The colours are intense with matte finish. The colours are quite lasting (around 4-5 hours). The creamy formula makes it easier to apply and easier to wear!
MAT 9 is more like tomato / cherry red, MAT 10 is a barbie pink, MAT 11 is a deep red.
Magnum Barbie Mascara
Maybelline Magnum Barbie Mascara comes in a pink yellow packaging. I am a loyal fan of Maybelline Mascara. Period. It's technically my holy grail so we all know how great their mascara is.
This mascara comes in one shade only: jet black shade. It coats my eyelashes pretty well. It does a good job in volumizing the lashes but not lengthening part.
Verdict: This is a waterproof mascara, and won't budge once applied. However, it does flake a bit after a long day. I still find myself leaning towards Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara which I swear by.
Maybelline Super BB Cushion
Well, it's about time, isn't it? With all the BB Cushion trend, finally Maybelline is launching their own BB Cushion. I'm all about BB Cream and BB Cushion thus I was looking forward to try this. However, the shade I got is #03 Natural, and the shade is too dark for me since I have a fair skin. :(
They have it in two shades, #02 Light and #03 Natural.
Verdict: I have yet to try it on (on my hand obviously since it doesn't match my shade) and I'll get back to update more about it. Whether it has a good coverage, dewy finish or oil control, I'll get back soon, ok?
Overall, If I have to pick my fave amongst all, I'm going to go with the vivid matte liquid! It is highly pigmented, it glides on easily and it is comfortable to wear. It is not completely matte though, but it is still a lovely product.
See you on my next post!
