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

I wanted to love this product, I really really did. After seeing so many beauty bloggers and youtubers rave about it I got my hopes up. But...

It's average. It's got okay coverage and does make under my eyes look a little brighter. Would say it lasts fairly well and smells pretty neutral. I do, however, think it could do with being higher coverage, as well as having a change of applicator, and being slightly easier to blend. Not sure why others have called it cakey, but perhaps I haven't tried to build it up enough to get to that stage.

For me, it didn't stand up to the hype. That said, it's a fairly cheap product that's easy to get hold of, so maybe I would buy again if other faves weren't available.

Overall, though, it's a fairly safe bet as I'm sure it would work with many skin types, but it probably won't blow you away.

Mascara -Maybelline New York -Great Lash Mascara

I have various 'impact' mascara's for nights out, ones that are like BAM! LASHES! This is not one of those. So, if that's what you want do not buy this. You'll be disappointed like so many other reviewers. But, I wasn't looking for one of those.

I have naturally long black lashes but they are blonde at the tip. For a subtle, day time look I really just want something that colours the end and adds a little definition. For me, this is perfect for that.

The only thing I hate is the packaging.

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

This foundation is really, really good. I think I am currently on my 5th bottle (and my skin has changed a fair amount between each buy, from oily to dry, from blemishes to none) and this product hasn't disappointed yet.

The pros are that the product really suits my skin tone (fair but warm - most foundations are too cool/pink for me), it has good coverage, blends well and stays all day. It also looks pretty natural on my skin. Reminds me a lot in its consistency and look/feel of Dior Forever Undercover, but for a fraction of the price.

Description wise, it is quite thin/watery when it comes out of the bottle, but this isn't a problem and just means that it sweeps onto my skin nicely and feels less cakey.

My best match summer shade was possibly on the slightly too orange side, but I really am picking up on the tiniest thing here and I think even then it looked great.

Overall fab foundation for an amazing price; couldn't really be happier. Apart from maybe if the bottle was prettier!

Mascara -Maybelline New York -The Colossal Big Shot Mascara

This is actually really good stuff for being from the drugstore. I see a lot of reviews that say it clumps their lashes together... not mine... It actually separates them very nicely and is not too much. However, the bottle I bought before the last upset me because when I took the lid off, it broke off from the wand and wouldn’t go back on. I had to use another brush from another mascara throughout the time I was using that tube. I know I could have returned it, but who has time for that?

Mascara -Maybelline New York -Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof

my eyes water like crazy cause of allergies so i need waterproof. this is the only decent drugstore waterproof mascara i can find. doesn’t actually make your lashes look like falsies but it’s a nice mascara that holds curl and gives a decent amount of volume and length. the best you can expect from a mascara, if you wanted better you’d have to get lash extensions (which i’ll do one day when i’m not on such a low income)

Lipstick -Maybelline New York -Color Sensational (All Shades)

I am personally obsessed with Maybelline lippies and not sure I'd wear lipstick if it weren't for this brand. I know I write in EVERY product review that I'm quite fair and cool toned but honestly when you're as fair and blue-toned as me, the selection of lipsticks that are wearable on my complexion is far and few between.

Enter Maybelline: I truly believe this brand is the most diverse (NYX is 2nd place) in terms of their lipsticks shades that can suit extremely fair and dark skin tones and a variety of undertones as well While many lipsticks are for medium toned skin, they always have something for the very fair or very dark. A lot of their products are slightly sheer and glossy looking, which in my opinion is perfect for every day - I don't want long-wearing, just subtle colors I can easily build up that feel comfortable on my lips.

I've wear other brands too but all the lipsticks that I fall in love with are Maybelline. A few of my fav all time shades: Lilac Flush, Born with It, Nude Lust


Eyeliner -Maybelline New York -Master Drama Nudes Eyeliner

on 7/26/2018 11:13:00 PM

A longwearing gel-based eyeliner pencil that's shiny with fine pearl, very affordable as it's a drugstore product. Goes on smoothly, easily and will draw a solid opaque line, no patchiness. The #Rose Pearl shade is a beautiful pink champagne colour that is particularly helpful for me as I have hooded eyes and this can help brighten my eye makeup. Used along the lower lashline, it gives an illuminating effect, and used on the upper lashline it is great for using just above a darker liner, it's opaque enough to cover little flecks and mistakes while also making my eyes look bigger and brighter when extending from the inner corner outward.

Resistant to tears and sebum, it lasts all day with minimal smudging and doesn't irritate my contact lenses, while being easy enough to wash off with soap at the end of the day. My favourite thing about it is the colour, I've not yet found any similar or alternative products of the same shade. So so pretty, a rose gold that's leaning peach, I'm always re-purchasing this when mine runs out.

Lipstick -Maybelline New York -Color Sensational® Lip Color 450 Romantic Rose

I recently came across Romantic Rose at the drugstore and saw the neutral pink sticker swatch on the packaging and decided to try it. When I got home and swatched it I realized it reminded me of my favorite Born with It, which is one of the brand's most popular shades. It's a neutral pink that can match any eye makeup. A stunning every day color I could never get bored of. I swatched the 2 side by side, with Born with It on my top lip and Romantic Rose on the bottom. Sure enough they're nearly identical! Born with It is a drop lighter and more sheer and pink while Romantic Rose leans a hint more mauve but you can barely tell the difference.

Even though Romantic Rose is a reformulated version of Born with It I would still rebuy because it's a stunning color. Just wanted to post this review in case Born with It is ever discontinued so you can all have a good dupe if you like this shade.

Mascara -Maybelline New York -Lash Sensational Luscious

I bought this purely because I read Meghan Markle uses it. While it does give a dramatic effect, it can get very clunky very easily, and also takes forever to dry. For me, it is not worth the extra effort it requires to use.

Pressed Powders -Maybelline New York -SuperStay Better Skin Skin-Transforming Powder

Really loving this powder. The coverage is light enough to make it feel like there's nothing on your face but still blurs pores and redness like a DREAM. I've been on a minimal makeup kick lately because I want my skin to breathe and to eventually not really need foundation at all so this is an awesome product. I don't want to string a bunch of juvenile sounding sentences together so I'll go ahead and just list the pro's, I don't have any con's.

PRO'S:
-great lasting power
-light, natural looking coverage
-blurs pores & redness
-convenient packaging
-doesn't transfer
-doesn't oxidize
-gentle on sensitive skin
-not too yellow or pink
-inexpensive

Mascara -Maybelline New York -The Falsies Push Up Angel Washable Mascara

on 7/25/2018 9:36:00 PM

I turned out enjoying this mascara much more than I thought I would! It gives dramatic length and a reasonable amount of volume. It does make my lashes look long and luscious, and delivers quite a dramatic look. I find the formula to work very well, not too wet or dry and not sticky. It dries fairly quickly after being applied to the lashes. It doesn't flake, smudge or smear throughout the day - even in heat and humidity. It won't last through tears though, this will cause it to smudge. It emphasises the curl of my lashes also. The brush is quite unique - much smaller and skinnier than I imagined. It is a comb with plastic bristles and is shaped with a curve to fit against the lash line, and only has bristles on one side. My only gripe is that due to the shape, it is difficult to do the eye which curves the opposite way to the brush! I simply comb it through my lashes in a zig-zag motion and get an even and non-clumpy application. I really like how dramatic it makes my lashes look, so I would definitely recommend and repurchase.

When i tried the dewy one, i didn’t like it because it exaggerated my dry spots, however this matte one is way better for me! it makes me skin look absolutely flawless and it lasts a really long time too! i just wish they would carry more yellow shades as i’m trying to match my fake tan and the shades oxidize to an orange colour and i have a yellow-olive skin tone.

I feel like I never have good eyebrow luck, but finally drugstore liners seem to be improving. this one can get me precise line or shadow. Doesn't smudge like most d/s brow products, is buildable, and long lasting.
