Concealers -Maybelline -DREAM BRIGHTENING CREAMY CONCEALER

It's so crazy how products seem to work so vastly different from person to person.I absolutely love this concealer for my under eye circles. I find it easy and quick to apply and unlike others who seem to get no coverage and a lot of shimmer, on my skin it blends away to a natural, non-shimmery finish, lasts all day, and does not crease into my mature skin. It's the one thing I will put on my face of I'm not wanting to wear makeup, it instantly make me look naturally light and bright. I plan on stocking up given the negative reviews I'm seeing here... it reminds me of the way YSL's Touche Eclat reacts with my skin at a fraction of the price.

This definitely keeps my face from getting oily/shiny, but I don't like that it's not translucent. If I wasn't perfectly applying it, I would sometimes see blotches of it on my face throughout the day, especially if I sweat some off. I wouldn't recommend if you're aren't a pro at applying/blending it (I am not). Otherwise it got the job done. It also comes with a lot of product and is very inexpensive.


Mascara -Maybelline -Lash Sensational Mascara

This is my all-time favourite mascara, you definitely get your money's worth!

The formula isn't too wet nor dry. Once applied the mascara dries without clumping or flaking. There isn't any fallout after wearing it all day. I enjoy long, thick and voluminous lashes, which this allows you to build.

I am not sure if there is a waterproof version available... Although, I often swim with this one on and it simply melts away in the water without leaving panda eyes (unless you actually touch or rub them).

I genuinely cannot fault this mascara whatsoever, besides the fact that Maybelline isn't cruelty-free.

Mascara -Maybelline -The Falsies Push-Up Drama

This is my HG mascara. I have long straight lashes, I always use an eyelash curler , always. I hate it when a mascara weights down my freshly curled lashes. This mascara holds curls perfectly. I love its formula not watery or gloopy . Its applicator head is plastic( I was skeptical at first) and does its job beautifully to cover lashes without being clumpy. I have tried many mascaras over the years but this one beats them all. I really dont understand the low ratings. I am using the waterproof one. I already have 2 backups in case they stop making this.

Mascara -Maybelline -The Colossal Big Shot Tinted Primer

on 6/2/2018 2:25:00 PM

I like this primer BECAUSE it's black tint. Most mascara primers are white which I've used and didn't like. With the white ones, when you put your mascara over it, it's hard to cover the white and it looks grey which means you need to add extra coats! Yes, I use more than two coats anyway as I have less lashes and they're light in color. This one is easy because it's black already and when I add L'Oreal Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara in Blackest Black, the latter doesn't clump with the primer. Without a primer, that mascara sometimes clumps. There's only one complaint I have is that after a couple of weeks, when you take the wand out of the tube, there's actual mascara coming separately out as well. It looks yucky and is messy. I had to put the wand back in, put it in a cup of warm water and after a few minutes, it was "normal" So, I'll buy it again at least for the time being until I'm sick of it and get something else. It's worth a try. That's why I marked the "yes" box asking if I'd buy it again.

Mascara -Maybelline -Total Temptation Mascara

on 6/2/2018 1:02:00 PM

This mascara should be called 'Total Transformation' instead of Total Temptation. So here's why...you purchase the mascara and use it and totally love your lashes. It does everything that it promises to do and you're thinking you have finally found your holy grail. Then after about 5 weeks - BOOM!! Total Transformation...and not in a good way. Overnight, this mascara's formulation transforms into this thick, gooey, clumpy, sticky, blob of gunk that is the most horrible looking crap you have ever put on your lashes. It clumps, flakes, and pulls down your lashes so much so that any amount of curling prior to applying is useless. Your lashes are on a downward slope and it looks horrible - the only thing to do is to wash it off, throw out the tube, and never purchase it again. It's like the Dr Jeckle & Mr Hyde of mascaras. Great for a few weeks and then - omg, what in the world is this crap on my lashes!?! Because of that total transformation I can only give this mascara a rating of 1 lippie, it was great at first but yuck after a few weeks. And I am ALWAYS very careful with my mascara, I keep my thumb on the mascara tube opening while I am applying so that no excess "air" gets into the tube to dry out the formula so this mascara's transformation was NOT because it dried out. No, it's something else and I'm not wasting my money on another tube to find out.
Oh well - still on my quest for a holy grail :)

I really liked this as a basic powder. I got “light” and it does the job fine. It also lasts forever.

Brows -Maybelline -Brow Precise fiber volumizer

I am tossing this stuff. My eyebrow hairs are pale and I look best if I use both pencil and an eyebrow-mascara type of product. But not this one! It is hard to apply, and clumps up and then some of the clumps fall on my face or in my eyes while others are very difficult to remove. I recommend Gimme Brow by Benefit instead.

Mascara -Maybelline -Great Lash Mascara Waterproof

I love this mascara! It's seriously so good. It lengthens with NO CLUMPS. I can layer this multiple times and it still looks natural. Whenever I use this, people would ask me if those are my real lashes or not (a friend of mine even touched them in the middle of our conversation!) I love the wand too, it's very small and simple, so getting to the lower lashes is a no problem! However, it flakes a little bit after a couple of hours, which i don't mind since I usually opt for dark eyeshadow on the lower lashline instead of mascara, plus it's really easy to just swipe the flakes off! It also reapplies beautifully. A holy grail for me!

Nice color and pigmentation. Creamy base. When rubbing the ring finger in the product it comes off clumpy if that makes sense.


Eyeliner -Maybelline -Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - All Shades

For the price, these are amazing! I own this in black, brown, and chrome black which has a slight sheen to it. The little brushes they come with are actually pretty good, they have slim and densely packed bristles and a gentle triangular shaped tip, allowing for slim lines and filling in between lashes using the very tip or using it at an angle to draw a smooth line.
As these are gel liners, they need a little time to set on the skin otherwise they smudge. I like to draw over the line in a brown or black eyeshadow to further set it in place. Wear time is reasonable, with an eye primer and eyeshadow on top to set, I get around 9 hours' wear even on my oily lids and even wearing my contact lenses and using re-wetting drops, the liner stays in place and doesn't run.
They last around a year with frequent use after which they are too dry and stiff in the pot to be able to use properly.

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

One of the best drugstore highlighters! Beautiful rose gold color that’s not chunky or glittery. I have this one and the gold. Just as good as the high end highlighters at a fraction of the price. The only thing I don’t like is the packaging. It hard to open.

I got this in white/the lightest one. Not sure why there are choices to review every color but the light one.
This is not holographic at all. It just has a lot of big chunks of mica in it and the very smallest tinge of purple hue, but not even almost holographic, I don't like when companies make false claims.
The mica is so big that it's almost glitter or looks like glitter, not shimmer. I feel the need to repeat myself that it's not holographic. It is very shiny and glittery though, very shimmery, but more in a glitter way than shimmer. It makes a nice eyeshadow though. And makes a nice body shimmer. But it's kind of more appropriate for Coachella or going to a club because of all the glitter. I still want to find an actually holograhic drugstore highlight, which so far I can't find.
The rose gold is very dark and a strange color, and the goldish/darkest one is super orange, in my opinion I can't even consider that being gold.


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

This is my perfect everyday foundation. Controls oil and sits well over my sunscreen. Not too full coverage or cakey. I would prefer a pump but I survive without it. I apply with a damp sponge and set with the Fit Me loose powder.

Eyeliner -Maybelline -Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - All Shades

I have been using this Maybelline gel eyeliner in black (01) almost every day since I was 16… and I am now 23. Nothing compares! With this I get a fine and opaque liner that remains intact all day.

I also find it’s the only thing that really works for tightlining and for the upper waterline. It doesn’t transfer like liquid liner (and imo requires less skill) and it allows for a much more precise line than eyepencils (even small ones with gel formulas). It’s also more economical: each pot lasts around 1 year, after which it is not completely empty but the formula becomes a bit too dry for my taste.

I was surprised by other reviews mentioning that it smudges because I always felt like it would last for days if I didn’t take my make up off! Granted, I don’t have oily eyelids, but I also never use any base. If you applied a heavy eye cream right before, I would suggest lightly powdering your eyelids for better staying power.

I remember wearing it in the pool in PE back in high school and my classmates being amazed that it didn’t budge. Just yesterday I walked around the city for hours in 30°C/86°F heat and ended the day with a 10 mins run under pouring, apocalyptic rain. When I finally got home, my concealer had melted, my mascara had migrated from my lashes to my cheeks, but my eyeliner was exactly as it had been when I put it on in the morning. In fact, it was this experience that finally prompted my review!

Now for the downsides: you do have to wash the brush after every use, which can be a pain. If you can afford it, you might want to use 2/3 brushes in rotation. The brush provided is very small, which is great to get in the roots of the lashes, but I tend to use an angled eyeliner brush, which makes the application quicker and is ideal to trace a flick. Lastly, the colour range isn’t the best – at least in my country. Note that the brown is shimmery, while the 01 black is matte. In comparison, Bobbi Brown gel liner has an excellent range of subtle, original shades, but beware: the formula dries much quicker!
