Maybelline Colour Blur

Maybelline is one of my favourite drugstore brands and they have been absolutely killing it with the new releases lately. They've been churning out everything from The Nudes eyeshadow palette to new mascaras to revamped lipstick shades. One of my favourite new releases though would have to be the Colour Blur pencils.

The product itself is a little unusual. On on end there is a creamy, matte wind up colour and on the other is a clear rubber "eraser". Colour Blur is based on the Korean trend of ombré lips so it's designed to be applied to the centre of the lips and blurred outwards to create the popular ombré effect. I love that a Western brand has come out with a product that is specifically designed to create a Korean beauty look! I personally love discovering what trends are popular in other countries and find it pretty kick ass that Maybelline have made it more mainstream.

I'm not especially good at the ombré look just yet but I'm working on it! I do find that the creamy formula isn't drying and wears really nicely. It works even better if you do blur it out a little with the eraser end. There are eight shades in the collection and all are very bright, perhaps because they are designed to be blurred out? All up, I think these are a great addition to the Maybelline line up and can't wait to get my hands on some more colours.

What you think of the Colour Blurs?
