I had the chance to check out Maybelline House in Greenwich Village during New York Fashion Week. It’s basically an immersive experience (immersive experiences, so hot right now) with a bunch of different rooms showcasing the brand and it’s amazing products (like the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink), AKA giving you the opportunity to take Instagram pictures (do I even need to say that anymore or is it just obvious??).
So let’s lyke ~ do this ~ !!!
Right as you walk in, you have the chance to take a mini music video of yourself with a cool graffiti backdrop – will share this soon (hopefully!). Then, you take a quiz on an iPad to see which Maybelline eyeshadow palette fits you best. It has q’s like what are you doing on a Saturday night, etc. – so naturally I was gifted the “City Mini” palette because I am a GURL ABOUT TOWN.
Heyyyyyy I’m here
Then, you’ll head into the “Fit Me Living Room” (The Maybelline Fit Me foundation is actually super popular with makeup artists). Check it out in the pics right hurrrr. (P.S. this is exactly what MY living room looks like! Weird.)
The next room was basically pitch black, but lit up slightly with blue lights – interesting choice being that this was the room that the makeup artists were working in, so kudos to them for putting makeup on attendees in the dark!! Def a skill I have yet to learn. They were using the Maybelline Tattoo Studio eyeliner (I got to take it home in deep teal) to do makeup as well as body tattoos.
Oh, there was also a bed, literally no idea why.
**Interruption: What Are Some Other Maybelline Products I Can Buy?**
Because drugstore makeup is FUN!
“Erase the look of dark circles, correct the appearance of redness and brighten the look of dull skin with Instant Age Rewind Eraser multi-use concealer.”
“Exclusive fanning mascara brush with ten layers of bristles reveals layers of lashes for a sensational full-fan effect. Add the look of length and volume without clumping.”
“There’s a new way to achieve a natural-looking flushed cheek look with one swipe of our gel-cream blush, cheek heat color tubes. This brand new lightweight gel cream cheek color creates a buildable, natural look for that perfect flushed effect.”
“Blurs skin imperfections and smooths fine lines + primes skin for even makeup application without a greasy feel.”
The final, largest room was where we had the chance to make our own lipsticks! I appreciate the days when my hands are not dirty from doing others’ makeup, and I’m also lazy AF and already had my amazing Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink, so I passed on this – but everyone else looked like they were having fun?!
There were also fancy Maybelline boxes with mini DOUGHNUTS in them, Bluestone Lane coffee/cookies/brownies, a fridge with shoes in it, and a DJ that I was literally not cool enough to be in the same room as.
As mentioned a few (okay more than a few) times, I got to take home the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink liquid lipstick. Patrick Ta (top, top makeup artist) used this on Adriana Lima (pic here ) and it looked AMAZING, so I’m excited to look like her too. 😉
I give Maybelline an A++ for this. Thanks for watching my leopard boots take on fashion weeekkkkk and fall in love with the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink liquid lipstick and more!
