It’s been over a year since we last saw a new Marvel movie, but the fangirl in me is well alive and kicking with Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home scenes still fresh in my mind. To keep us on the edge of our seats until Black Widow arrives in theaters in 2021, here’s a look at a recent collab that we’ve never expected (but always dreamed of) – a crossover between some of our favorite Marvel heroes and some of our favorite makeup shades from Maybelline!
Maybelline Philippines officially launched their supercharged limited edition collection featuring their long-lasting mask-proof Superstay Matte Ink and eyebag concealer called Instant Age Rewind last Saturday (October 3, 2020) exclusively on Shopee.
What sets this collab apart from the previous releases is its packaging. The Marvel x Maybelline products come in a shiny box with prints of Marvel heroes’ logos. Inside, the tube now has a silver cap compared with the plain white cap that they used before and you’ll also find a shiny print of hero’s logo along with the Marvel and Maybelline logo. Characters featured are: Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Panther, and Black Widow.
Here’s a look at each packaging before you “swipe on your superpower”:
MARVEL x MAYBELLINE SUPERSTAY MATTE INK
One thing to note about this collaboration is that only the packaging is different. Each lippie shade has already been released before and these seem to be fan-favorites since I’m seeing Groundbreaker, Versatile, and Ruler again in the set.
- Iron Man x Versatile (210)
- Spider-Man x Pioneer (20)
- Black Panther x Groundbreaker (117)
- Black Widow x Lover (15)
- Captain Marvel x Ruler (80)
Each shade costs Php 299 but the set of 5 can be bought for only Php 1,495 via the Maybelline Official Store on Shopee.
INSTANT AGE REWIND
Even though it’s called age rewind, we didn’t see a Doctor Strange or an Ant Man logo anywhere. Missed opportunity, TBH! However, it’s still fine since the formulation and coverage is still as good as the Instant Age Rewind concealer that I’ve grown to love. It still has the same see-through packaging as before with a cushion tip applicator.
- Black Widow in Light (120)
- Captain Marvel in Medium (130)
- Black Panther in Sand (122)
Each shade costs Php 399 via the Maybelline Official Store on Shopee.
Overall, it’s worth buying if you’re both a Marvel and Maybelline fan. If you’re only after the makeup, it isn’t really different from the formulation and shades in normal packaging so you’ll just have more options now. Personally, it’s a nice collectible to go with my Marvel comics and mug. Definitely not an essential but more of a nice-to-have! I’d still cop all shades, though. Just hoping that they also release a Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch, and Vision versions soon since these characters are about to have their big break, too (I hope)!
