Maybelline New York

The Maybelline Company was created by a 19-year-old entrepreneur named Tom Lyle Williams in 1915. Williams noticed his older sister Mabel applying a mixture of Vaseline and coal dust to her eyelashes to give them a darker, fuller look. He adapted it with a chemistry set and produced a product sold locally called lash-in-brow-line. Williams renamed his eye beautifier Maybelline, in honor of his sister Mabel, who gave him the idea. In 1917 the company produced Maybelline Cake Mascara, ""the first modern eye cosmetic for everyday use"" and Ultra Lash in the 1960s, which was the first mass-market automatic

Liquid -Maybelline New York -FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

This was my first foundation ever and I was really excited for it! I thought that the reasons why I didn't like this foundation was because it was my first one, but once I tried other ones... Well, then I knew.

This foundation is matte (duh), which is why I tried it in the first place (and it's cheap). Because I am combination skin and there are some oily parts on my face that need it, anyone would logically try this foundation. I think this is where the problem grows. Once I add moisturizer to the dryer parts of my face, it's like all my face is now all-normal. Having a matte foundation means it will be on the dryer side and I did my best to make my face all on the same level. I'm not a fan of having a shiny face, so I hoped that this would eliminate that aspect. The foundation IS matte, but poreless? This foundation pronounced every single imperfection on my face and made the acne I tried to hide, look worse. My pores often were pronounced. Spots where I moisturized had dry patches due to the matte finish (some parts looked normal, other had weird dry patches). You'd think, "Oh, what about her oily parts of her face?" I liked how it looked sometimes, other times it looked kind of cakey without putting a lot of product on. This foundation constantly felt like it was sitting on top of my face, making me feel so uncomfortable for a long time. I thought this was normal for foundations, until I tried other ones. And finally, it oxidizes. I have yellow under-tones but often, this foundation would steer into orange and it was obvious since I blend down to my neck. Because of the lack of pump, I'd use the back of my hand and it'd oxidizes there too!! There was sometimes a stark difference on my face. It'd be fine at home, but a mess when I was out. Speaking of blending, this product must be blended well because of the formula, it would look kinda ashy sometimes.

I will say that this product reacted well to other powder products, like blush. I do not think you would need powder for this, but I did not use powder to bake or set (since it was my first foundation and I was trying to figure stuff out). Especially with how this foundation finished for me, it's quite matte enough. This product does have a light scent, but it wasn't bad. Just normal foundation smell. It does not come with a pump, which is fine for me, and I would put some on the back of my hand. It was easy to put left-over product back in. The color wasn't the best either. For the price, I would definitely say "buy it" if you've been meaning to do so, and honestly, there is no way you will know how this will react on your skin unless you do. If you're adamant on it, do it. I was and I thought it'd work for me, it didn't.

I do not recommend this product.

Lipstick -Maybelline New York -Gone Greige

Didn't think I could pull off a grey toned lipsticks since many I've tried make me look post-mortem. But this one has a spicy undertone that makes it combine glamorously with my yellow undertoned skin. It's a statement color but not too "out there" if you know what I mean. I've worn this for college and my friends have gotten the same shade and love it as well.
The formula is matte but not too dry, very opaque, and very durable on the lips after meals.
I definitely recommend this if you want something bold but classy at the same time!

Lips -Maybelline New York -Color Sensational Shine Compulsion Lipstick

I tried this out in the colour spicy mauve, as the light nude shade looked too light. I liked the colour, but it's more of a terracotta-red-pink-brown than mauve. The shades are decent, but not a huge spectrum from light to dark as there are only 7 or 8 shades.

What I didn't like about this was the way it felt on my lips the whole time I wore it. It was very shiny but also so so oily feeling. It felt like I had just eaten the greasiest fried chicken and had gotten grease on my lips, and I was very conscious of the feeling the whole day I wore it. It feels like it's about to slide off your lips onto your chin or wherever and I had to be very careful talking and whatnot. Just not a comfortable lip to wear.

This may be because I had a darker colour (which I have since passed on), and you may not have to be as careful with a lighter colour but it just wasn't worth the discomfort for me. I will be passing on the rest of the line.


Concealers -Maybelline New York -Fit Me Concealer

So after reading great reviews about this product I decided to give it a go. I do have semi-serious dark circles under my eyes. I first found the consistency of this product to be too runny. After applying it to the circles under my eyes and trying to blend it , it seemed like my skin had only absorbed the product and the circles were still smiling at me in the mirror. If you're a person in need of full coverage under the eyes - this product is not for you.


Mascara -Maybelline New York -The Falsies Push-Up Drama

I have been using Maybelline products for some considerable time so I purchased The Falsies Pushup Drama mascara with confidence. What I found was the worse mascara I have ever purchased. It created a sticky, clumpy mess. My lashes stuck together and even using a dry mascara brush I was unable to separate my lashes.

Due to the recent hot weather I tried keeping it in the fridge but I'm afraid it made no difference.

May I suggest you do a re-run on this product and see what went wrong or, just bin it.
