Yesterday I had the pleasure to attend the press launch of Maybelline Jade's new make up range "Fit Me". Some impressions, before we talk:
That new product range is really awesome. It consists of a foundation, a powder, a concealer and a blush.
Everything you need for a complete make up. Another thing that is quite unique for a drugstore make up range is the variety they created.They made three categories: light, medium, dark. Each category has three foundations, three powders and two concealers. So the chance to find your tone is more than good. :-) It's even made easier, cause the products have the same numbers. So, if the powder with the nr. 120 is you tone, all products with that number are a perfect fit for you.
Sleek and professional looking, right? I love it.
There was a short presentation and then the Make Up Artist Boris Entrup, who is quite popular in Austria and Germany thanks to the several Next Topmodel shows, demonstrated the products on models.
Me and Boris.
He was a nice fella, but I was a bit bewildered by his application techniques.. He used the blush to contour the jaw and nose, a blush for contouring?! A brown blush, okay, but not a pink one.. He applied it over the lips as well..
What I really disliked about him was the fact that he commented on my eye make up twice and what's wrong with it, without me asking for his opinion.. Way to go Boris...
Back to the products. Another plus of these is the price tag:
We were allowed to pick our shade for each product and take it home with us, except for the blush which doesn't have its final packaging yet.
I chose the lightest number (120) for the foundation and powder and number 15 for the concealer.
Swatches will be up soon! I was really impressed by the products. What I already found out and that's quite sad is that the lightest liquid foundation shade is too dark for me. The other two seem perfect!
Thanks again to Maybelline Jade for inviting me. It was great, so classy and stylish!
The products will be released in December.
Products were given to me for review.
