I love when a new beauty launch lands at my door and I was particularly excited by these new 'GO RIO' products from Maybelline so I thought it was only right I shared them with you guys. I think I was initially drawn to them because of their super bright and fun packaging. I mean look at it - how Summery and pretty?! I have to admit, these products did arrive quite some time ago now and I feel like I should have probably reviewed them quite some time ago but for me, I much prefer to give new products a thorough try before reviewing them here on my blog so I do apologise if this is old news now - haha!

There's four products in the range including three existing products that have been spiced up with the new Rio packaging and a new lip launch exclusive to this collection. The existing products include the Colossal volume mascara, the Master Sculpt face powder and the Eraser Eye Concealer (which I wasn't sent but I have featured this product on my blog lots of times as it's one of my faves) whilst the new addition is the Vivid Matte liquid lipsticks. 


I've tried Maybelline mascaras before and have always been really impressed so I had high hopes for the Colossal mascara. I do like it but it doesn't compare to my Benefit Roller Lash or Too Faced Batter Than Sex mascaras in terms of adding volume and length. I used to think paying out on a high end mascara was a total waste of money but I can really see the difference when I use a cheaper one.

So, slight negative about the mascara to one side - you'll be pleased to hear the other two products are amazing! I love anything that promises to 'sculpt' my complexion (great cheekbones aren't something I was naturally blessed with) and I've been really impressed with the Master Sculpt which is a contour and highlighting product. I've been using the contour shade mainly as I don't find the highlight pigmented enough for my person tastes but the contour powder is great as it's a really neutral shade with no orange tones so it's perfect for creating that natural shadow look.


Finally we have the Vivid Matte liquid lipsticks and these would definitely have to be my favourite from the selection of products I was sent. I'm obsessed with lipsticks in general as I'm sure you already know and these ones have everything I look for in a lip product - pigmentation, comfortable to wear and decent staying power. The three shades I was kindly sent are right up my street too -  there's 'Nude Flush' which is a perfect everyday Pinky nude shade, Electric Pink which is a really vibrant fuchsia (this will look amazing on holiday with a tan) and finally we have 'Rebel Red' which is the most perfect Hollywood glam true red shade. I can't really say much more about these other than they're amazing and I'd really recommend trying them out for yourself.

Overall I really like these new products from Maybelline, even if the mascara was a little bit of a disappointment. You can get them here and they're all priced at a very reasonable £6.99 each. What a bargain!!

Do you like the look of these products?!
