Mascara -Maybelline -Volum' Express The Colossal

Pros:
- goes on clump free;
- well separates the lashes;
- holds the curl;
- doesn't irritate sensitive eyes.

Cons:
- lots of fall-out through the day;
- the brush is too fluffy for short lashes or small eyes;
- smells terrible, really terrible.

I can't recommend.


Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline -FaceStudio Master Fix Wear Boosting Setting Spray

I initially really liked this setting spray. It definitely held my makeup all night. Unfortunately on my skintone it causes flashback and considering I only wear makeup when Im going out and was using this on top of my makeup I was dissapointed to realise that this was causing me flashback. My skintone for reference Mac NC43/Fenty 360.
The price point is great though. A great drugstore setting spray, however, on me, its only good during the day, not for nights out and for that im only giving 2 lippies.

Brows -Maybelline -Brow Precise Micro Pencil

Bought this half price (about $7 aud) in Coles because I get easily distracted from groceries and I was excited to see they have an auburn colour option because as a redhead it’s extremely difficult to find brow products, especially for drugstore prices! I usually use Anastasia dipbrow in Auburn and/or powder in Caramel but I’m always on the lookout for cheaper products. Very disappointed in this colour wise - I wasn’t expecting a full on red but at least a nice warm brown with a hint of orange/red. It’s a very neutral brown which actually tends toward the cooler side on my skin and doesn’t tone in with my hair or natural brows at all. Application-wise it works pretty well, nice fine point, and the attached spoolie brush makes it great for makeup on the go. It’s not overly pigmented but gives enough colour to define my brows nicely. It’s very cheap especially on sale but you get less than 3cm worth of product and the crayon is quite soft so it won’t last long. I’ll be keeping this for emergency use I suppose so it may last me a while.

Mascara -Maybelline -New York Total Temptation Waterproof Mascara

This is a really good mascara. It is definitely waterproof and stays put on me, and I tend to get smudging on a lot of mascaras. The brush is big but not unwieldy. Packaging is sturdy.

My one complaint is that it seems to have gotten dry kind of quickly. It was great when fresh though. I'm hitting the 2 month mark on it and not sure if it will last too much longer, but it's not expensive so I'm not too bothered.

Brows -Maybelline -Brow Precise fiber volumizer

foto

This is one of the worst brow products I've tried in a long time!
I'm reviewing the shade Auburn. This shade looks somewhat auburn in the tube but really it's just a light brown color when swatched on the back of my hand, definitely not suited for a redhead imo.
When I applied this to my brows this instantly turned my brow hairs a very dark brown color, not the skin where I had applied a brow pencil to, just the hairs and no amount of combing through my brows with a spoolie was going to save them from the tragedy this crappy brow volumizer did to my brows. I had used Nyx Micro Brow Pencil before using this Brow Precise product, thinking adding some fibers to my brows may make my sparse brows look fuller, boy was I wrong.
So, I had to make my other brow look equally crappy cause brows are suppose to be sisters, right? So onto the other brow this godawful product went and it happily turned my brow hairs very dark brown so I had sh*tty looking brows all day because I didn't have time to fix them before leaving for work but at least they looked equally sh*tty and like sisters. Noway was one brow going to be the pretty sister and the other one was going to be the ugly one, today they were both equally ugly.
This has since been chucked into the trash bin. Wished I had saved the packaging and receipt to return it to the store.

Eye Shadow -Maybelline -Color Tattoo - Inked in Pink

foto

Great color and formula!

Inked in Pinked is actually quite neutral despite the name. Like a nude rose rather than true pink. But it's still a stunning color nonetheless that pretty much any skin tone can where. One of those effortless colors that's so easy to put on, I just can't help but repurchase.

Today I swatched all of my new eyeshadows including this shade. When I went to wipe them off with a napkin, this one (and Creamy Beige which is part of the same collection) would not come off! This really is tattoo-like in wear and I'm very impressed.


BB Cream -Maybelline -Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Cream

Love this BB cream. It's light but not too light & does blur imperfections and even skin tone. I use it everywhere on my face including my eyelids. I need a bit of concealer for dark parts - ie eye corners and expression lines. That's it. Awesome value and for those Canadians that think it doesn't have spf, it does. Listed as 1st ingredient Titanium dioxide. It doesn't however say SPF on the label.


Liquid -Maybelline -Superstay 24HR Full Coverage Foundation

on 4/18/2018 4:49:00 PM

I should have listened to our fellow reviewers but i didnt. I wanted to love it, but this foundation emphasizes even slightly dry skin like crazy, even on my combination/oily skin. My skin is tan/olive depending on the season with a strong yellow undertone. I wear a shade 332 in Fit Me, and the Golden 312 is a great match as soon as I apply it, but it oxides for like 30 minutes and once it dries it is 2 shades darker. I tried going up to 310 SunBeige but it is just too pink! I coyldnt find a medium shade that has a yellow undertone in the superstay. Im dissapointed and feel like i wasted my time and money.

Horrible. I bought it because target was sold out of full’n’soft. It takes a ton of coats to be able to see anything & then my lashes uncurl. I threw it out. The brush is a neat idea but turned out to be totally useless


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

Saw some good reviews and the price was right so thought I'd check it out. Tended to oxidize, slight orange tinge. Not particularly poreless and I was oily by noon. Will stick with my Revlon Colorstay.

I own this in voyager and this lasts and lasts! I love a wine colored lipstick so of course I love this. It does stay sticky so your lips never go dry all the way but this does not bother me at all.beautiful deep red, I will not purchase others but I will repurchase this one.

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

So for reference, I have acne prone skin, I am pale and I have combination skin.
I only recently began using this foundation, in the shade 110 Porcelain. I was using the dewy and smooth version but in the shade ivory I think, and the undertone was just far too pink. This matte and poreless one has a yellow undertone which is great. I do think it can be drying, so I always prep my skin well with moisturizer and serum and a good primer. It wears nicely and doesn't get anywhere CLOSE to as oily as the dewy and smooth one. I'm wearing the matte and poreless one on my face right this second and have been for 8 hours and it looks pretty darn good. Definitely give this foundation a try!

Highlighters -Maybelline -Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter - Molten Rose Gold

I have accumulated a lot of highlighters and this one is my HG and gets the most use. I usually just put it on my fan brush and apply but I bought the Fix Plus and have used it with that and wow! It's really pretty and not glittery.

Highlighters -Maybelline -Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter - Molten Rose Gold

Beautiful highlighter, especially at the price point. I don't get too excited about highlighters in general (prob because I have oily skin) but I do have...a few. Lol. What I like about this one is the shade: it's a bright, clean, crisp, neutral rose gold. It is not copper. The pan is huge. It could be a touch creamier & melt into the skin better, but overall it's comparable to most high end powder highlighters I've tried.

It's definitely neutral to my eye, but I have cool-ish olive skin and there is a certain contrast (borderline clash) in tone when I wear this. It works gloriously when I coordinate the rest of my makeup accordingly, but just a heads up for those with similar skin tones. Those with fair peachy skin -- RUN & GET THIS.

It might just be my experience, but this was sort of hard to nab. My Ulta and Walmart didn't have it, but I found it at Target eventually.
