May is the month of Maybelline, and they relaunched the Super Stay Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipcolor in style this year. Hosted at Level Three Rooftop venue in Sandton by the always charming Pamela Mtanga, we celebrated 106 years of Maybelline in authentic New York fashion.
The month of Maybelline
Upon arrival, we stepped into the subway, which immediately transported us to an exclusive party where the Brutal Fruit Litchi Sèche was served upon arrival. With a vibrant and edgy atmosphere, the space was adorned with a vending machine where guests could get two Maybelline Super Stay Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipcolor lipsticks and a claw machine where you could try your luck at catching another two. Photobooths, where endless photoshoots could be taken, were scattered around the venue, and a Maybelline makeup wall for us to browse with all their products was on display. Undoubtedly, my fave was the two makeup artists’ stations who welcomed guests to their chairs with an electric energy. Guests could get their face beat for the gods, get professional tips and receive personalised makeup consultations. MUA Tessie beat my face – and it was honestly the most fun I had that evening.
Maybelline did not stop there and brought out The Piercery – Gauteng’s favourite piercing studio. Guests got a chance to get new ear piercings and enhance their edgy style.
Maybelline’s newest spokesperson
Guests were treated to a world-class performance by Nigerian superstar and Maybelline’s newest spokesperson – Ayra Starr. She performed her hit songs, such as Bloody Samaritan, and was ushered in by the multi-talented Bontle Modiselle. Before then, Maybelline brought out DJ DooWop before Kamo Mphela came out on stage and made everyone lose their minds! It was a Maybelline mini-festival – and we could all do with more of those.
