Maybe it’s Maybelline’s 100th birthday!

If you follow me on Twitter (@lipglossgirl) and Instagram (@lipglossgirlxoxo) you’ll know Maybelline recently turned 100 years old and threw a rocking party in Jozi to celebrate.

Happy happy Maybelline!

The event played host to a bunch of beauty peeps, media and models dressed up to recreate the looks featured in Maybelline’s recent era-inspired calendar.

Mooi, ne?

I think the girl on the left is supposed to be Mable, Maybelline's founder.

One of the highlights (aside from probably a leetle too much free booze) was getting to create our own goodie bags by delving into bowls and bowls of product.

Don't mind if I do!

The next day, I was hung like a donkey…

...but it was nothing a Cream Soda float couldn't cure.

Also, you’d never say ‘cos I had more makeup than I could handle to bring the mooiness.

This was what was in yet another goodie bag in my room. I promise I didn't nick all this from the party.

There are quite a few new goodies in there and once I find out when they launch I’ll be sure to whip up a few reviews and get swatchy with the lippies. I’ve already found a few favourites I’m sure you’ll appreciate too.

Love, love
