Lipstick -Maybelline - 24 Hour super stay

Stays on very well, but I found that it emphasised and sank into every line, wrinkle and crevice of my mouth, especially after putting the balm on, making me look much older. Putting a good, clear gloss over the top helped

Mascara -Maybelline - The Colossal Big Shot Tinted Primer

on 10/23/2017 3:14:00 AM

This reminds me a lot of Benefit's They're Real Tinted Lash Primer. When used as a natural-looking mascara, Maybelline's The Colossal Big Shot Tinted Primer is actually very nice. It enhances the lashes and makes them look so pretty! But not "done". But when used as a lash primer, this is really just okay. Not BAD but there are definitely better ones out there that I would recommend over this one.

Lash primer is something that I use every single day. And I expect it to do two things: prevent my mascara from smudging, and give my mascara a "boost" with added length and volume. That's why I love lash primers so much, a good one makes all the difference in the world.

Maybelline's lash primer is black in color and has a smooth, clump-free formula. Applies very easily. But there's not much added drama or "oomph" with this primer, and it didn't do a great job of smudge-prevention either. So I will not be buying this again.

My HG is Clinique's Lash Building Primer, and Hard Candy's 1000 Lashes is also pretty good.

I bought this because I was curious but it's not a winner for me.


Contour -Maybelline - FaceStudio Master Contour

I gave this product a good rating because the highlighter and the blush are beautiful. The Contour color is not very good and not very blendable but I would buy this again just for the highlighter which is a beautiful pale champagne gold. The packaging clunky and the brush is no good.


Concealers -Maybelline - DREAM BRIGHTENING CREAMY CONCEALER

I really love most of Maybelline products and this concealer looks like a good thing but I was not too impressed as it's not very blendable or creamy as a name says. Wearing moisturizer underneath this is imperative especially if you're going to use it under the eyes. I don't know if I would buy this again.


Lipstick -Maybelline - Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick

This stuff is so sticky and gummy, just never sets. I tried applying with a lip brush, lightest layer and it still felt bad. After several attempts, these went into the trash can.

Lipstick -Maybelline - Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick

I thought it would be nice to try a "super stay" lipstick that really was - the others I have tried never really stayed on, except for lip stains - which look like you were just drinking cherry kool-aid. But have to agree with the review that says "it would take an Act of Congress to remove" - hah.

It has a very gummy texture, and I usually wear it over or under another lipstick (I have the light cool pink). If I put it on first, it will stay when the other wears off, but I'll feel that gumminess. On top it's a mite bit better, but that defeats the super-stay to some extent. I decided I wouldn't buy it again - definitely - when I took plastic cups from the dishwasher and this hadn't been removed. So I left the cups in for the next wash. And the next. Even a hot, long "sterilizing" wash - which I usually never do - would not remove the lipstick marks from this stuff! I tried to scour it off, and that was difficult. Easier to just throw the cups away.

Not needing anything that tough to remove.


Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara

I think the quality of this mascara is very inconsistent. I have purchased around 10 of these over the years because they are cheap and always on sale. Sometimes it is clumpy right out of the tube, but sometimes it gives you very natural definition without clumps.

Cons: thick, sticky like glue yet runny like water, hard to spread and to blend, doesn’t provide enough coverage.

Palettes -Maybelline - The Nudes

This palette is not very pigmented, and the light shimmers have a strange cakeyness to them. It's difficult to build color without it looking splotchy, and it doesn't last very long...even with primer. You can make it work with this palette, but it is certainly fussy.

Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Flared

on 10/20/2017 10:56:00 AM

I am on my second tube. I had used the regular Falsies in the past, but decided to try the "Flared" version when I noticed for the same price, you get 9.4ml versus the 7.5ml you get with the regular Falsies mascara. This mascara gives me very similar results to the Maybelline Colossal mascara if you have ever tried that one. This gives a good amount of length and volume in one coat, with no flaking, clumping, or smudging. Although, I prefer the slimmer curved wand on the Falsies Flared, and find it easier to get to the base of lashes. This stuff actually holds up to water pretty well too, despite being non-waterproof, and can take a little more work to remove at night (but not as difficult as a WP mascara). A solid drugstore performer, at a very reasonable price ($6), so I will continue to purchase.

Liquid -Maybelline - Dream Cushion

on 10/19/2017 9:31:00 PM

So far this is working out very well l. The coverage is good -- not settling into my large pores, lasting 9+ hours since application. Finish is in the sweet spot between matte and overly "radiant." Just a little dewiness. Plus, the porcelain shade is a good match. I like a sponge application, and this is a lot faster than messing around with my beauty blender.

I have used a lot of drugstore foundations...a LOT, and this is my current favorite. I do try others, but I always come crawling back to this one! I love the finish and feel, because this seems to meld with my skin, and looks so smooth and non-cakey, and really masks my larger pores. Despite the natural finish, it does not make me greasy like other foundations do. For reference, I have combo/oily skin. I wish that this had SPF, because I like to layer up on my sun protection. The pump bottle is really convenient, and the shade "Natural Ivory" matches my pale, neutral skintone perfectly, despite looking too dark/pink in the bottle. I think it's important to mention what is worn under/over foundations, when reviewing. Having said that, I wear Olay Complete Sensitive SPF15 under this, and Covergirl's Professional loose powder to set. The price is pretty reasonable ($8-$9), and I will likely repurchase!

Loose Powders -Maybelline - Shine Free Oil-Control Loose Powder

Shade: 01 Light
Foundation Shade: NC15

After years, I have finally managed to use up this product! I think this is a pretty average powder. It does work very well for controlling my oil, so I'll give it that. It also is not translucent so you can definitely use it on top of your bronzer or blush if you feel like you were too heavy handed with them.
The only downside is that it does look quite powdery when I apply this onto my skin. Also the packaging is a bit bulky, and the lid comes off very easily. Definitely not a powder for traveling.
