Brows -Maybelline -Total Temptation Brow Definer Pencil

This is a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow wiz. Except actually I like this a lot better!!! Better quality packaging (the last 2 brow wiz I bought the spollie head broke off)
I still run a powder over top of it if I need my makeup to last a long work day but I had to do that with the brow wiz too.

It’s a really good formula and price point is excellent.

Concealers -Maybelline -Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer

This would have 5 stars but the packaging grossed me out.
This is the best drugstore concealer I have ever used. Great coverage for under eyes and minimal creasing.

It’s an okay concealer. Previously the lightest shade was too dark for me but they recently came out with new shade, 00 Ivory, so I bought it out of curiosity.
Of course the first thing I did was removing the stupid sponge, which is unsanitary and unnecessary. It worked well and I don’t have to use as much product.
The coverage is medium. Doesn’t cover my extreme dark circles, but nothing except Tarte Shape Tape can do that, so I’m not surprised.
I set it with some powder. It doesn’t accentuate my skin’s texture like many concealers do.
Overall, nothing special but if you have minor dark circles, you might give it a try.

Palettes -Maybelline -The Blushed Nudes

One of the worst eyeshadow palettes I've ever purchased. The formula is super chalky and has very poor pigment. Spend the extra money on the Naked 3 set for much better quality shadows.

Palettes -Maybelline -The Blushed Nudes

Chalky shadows with little to no pigment. They’re stiff to the touch. Even with a good quality eyeshadow primer and setting spray on the brush, these tend to look dry on the eyelids. Several layers later, the colour still looks faint and if you build on other colours, it does tend to look like it’s only one tiny wash of a shade. It sucks because they look rich in the pans and the colour section is pretty, similar to the Naked 3 colour wise. There’s better out there at a similar price or sometimes more budget friendly. I would suggest The Burgundy Bar by Maybelline or an Essence palette instead.

Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline -Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

I wanted to like this primer, as I am a fan of Maybelline mascaras and LOVE their Baby Lips balms, and it sounded so promising especially at the price point. I had read it was a nice alternative to Benefit's poreFESSIONAL, which I love so I was eager to try it out. Not only was I wrong, but trying this product turned out to be a catastrophic mistake for my skin! It felt okay going on, soft and smooth out of the tube and seemed to melt into my skin, but I quickly noticed it was not drying and I saw practically no visual benefit to my face. My pores were not minimized, actually it made them seem almost magnified, and it left an oilslick on my face that was noticeable and highly unattractive.

By midday I couldn't stand the oily feeling of the product just sitting on my skin so I tackled it with blotting papers, but when even that didn't help I just pulled out my makeup remover wipes and got that sh*t off my face. But the worst part of all was when I woke up the following day my face was HORRIBLY broken out!! After just ONE USE!! My skin was (IS) in full meltdown panic mode and it's going to take probably two weeks to undo the damage and get it balanced back out. SUCH a nightmare - if I could give this product a NEGATIVE 5 I would! Beware!

Mascara -Maybelline -Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof

Idk if my mascara came dry or the formula is
I like how the wand never picks up too much product and how it seperates my lashes
But seperating is all it does
It doesnt give me volume or length or a curl
It does also smudge at the end of the day
And its a pain to remove, everytime i think im done i find out there are still much to remove
Wont buying this again sorry colossal

This is a great brow gel. It has tremendous staying power. It lasts all day and does not smudge or fade at all. It looks the same in the evening as when you applied it in the morning. I do find that it does come off when I wash my face at night so I don't get more than one day of wear from it. I find it looks very natural. I use a brow brush to apply it though. The applicator that comes with it goes on very heavy so a brow brush works better. What I like the most is that it actually colors the hair and not just the skin underneath the hair. My eyebrows are very pale blonde and it looks strange to have pencil on the brows but the hair still is pale blonde. This gel not only covers the skin but the hair as well. Highly recommend.

I took a shot with this and it paid off. Formerly very happy with Falsies Big Eyes with the upper and lower brushes but it's not on the market any more and I don't like the flat brush on the new version. This does what Full n' Soft promises to do but much better - soft, unclumpy lashes but with presence which is a bit more length and volume. I love the brush which manages to get a nice coat on with one pass, lashes stay soft and easy to comb through. It also picks up all the little lashes which larger brushes can't do. This is a Three Bears product - it's just right. I would say this is very close to Dior Show with a great price.

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

I love this powder so much Im pondering getting a backup. That has legit never happened to me before. Who knew this gem was sitting in Walmart all this time. This doesnt break me out, which is a miracle in itself, but this also sets my concealer and face makeup so beautifully. It doesn't emphasize my fine lines or texture, and it has a soft matte finish with a sheer tint of color. I apply under and over the eye area with the Wet N Wild Crease brush in a soft, sweeping, back and forth motions (Because I LOVE that brush for powder and highlighter application), and then I sweep some powder with the Moda Powder brush (which works great for this. Its Real techniques level quality for reference) all over my face. I always finish with some Coty Airspun extra coverage in my tzone, even though I don't have to, for more oil control and because I love the creamy skin effect of Coty.

I use the shade Light, because that was the only color Walmart carried, but it works perfectly well on my NC 42 skintone. I would recommend to anyone except people with very dry skin who I imagine wanting more of a sheer glowy powder that keeps their dewy foundations looking dewy; I will probably purchase a backup myself. Pakaging wise its standard for loose powders. I would suggest to keep the sticker mostly on so that only a little comes out at a time.

Great powder. Zero complaints at this price point with this performance. Luv.

I saw that product and was quite glad to give it a try. A nice angle to help achieve what I find impossible. The tip is super thin too. So thin the product dries before getting there. You wont get precise line or even a line unless you use the larger part and honey be ready because it’ll leak as if it was to refill the ocean. Pass on it really, there are better products out there and if you are wanting to try it i guarantee you’ll throw it away after first use

I really don’t care to much for this product, I think it’s okay to use if you want to just fill in your brow but if you want to fill and make them last all day this is not the product, over all it’s good to fill in your brows if your in a hurry.

Concealers -Maybelline -Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

This is a really nice concealer and quite similar to the YSL one. I found it perfect for adding brightness to my face, especially my under eye area. Let’s get one thing straight though, if you are into ‘Instagram’ makeup and like to apply your concealer like war paint as many ‘beauty gurus’ do before ‘baking’ it into oblivion, then this concealer is not for you and I believe that the negative reviews are mostly coming from the demographic which I just described as I honestly can’t see how anyone would give it one star. I bought this concealer for 50% off on sale and I believe I paid about $10 AUD. When trying a drugstore product for the first time, I only buy when on sale so that way if I end up disliking it, at least I haven’t wasted too much money. I would absolutely repurchase this concealer. It won’t disguise heavy bags or super dark circles though as it’s only medium coverage. I found this concealer to be perfect for me as my under eyes are quite good and just need a little bit of concealing/brightening which this did perfectly. I believe this will still work really well for people with dark circles, so long you first use a peach toned colour corrector which you should be doing anyway if you do suffer from dark circles. The best way to apply this concealer is to dot it on the areas which need covering and then gently pat it in with your ring finger to blend. Using a brush or sponge will thin the product too much. I believe that a gentle patting motion with the middle finger or ring finger is the best way to apply any type of concealer for a natural look. If you like a natural look and want to look more bright eyed, healthy and ‘awake’, then this is a fantastic option at a fantastic price!

One of my staples. I have gone through so many tubes of this color. It’s a light/medium plummy raspberry color with some shimmer. It is flattering for cool, fair skin and brightens up the face. I tend to gravitate to this type of color. It always works for me.
