Mascara -Maybelline -The Colossal Big Shot Mascara

I’m a huge fan of Maybelline mascaras, I feel they’re a reliable product no matter which one you pick up.
This is my new favourite, it adds length and volume without clumping, smudging or feeling crusty. It’s easy to apply and remove. It’s a dryer formula which is my preference, and the brush is a fluffier brush.
Do check it out, it’s an affordable option if you’re in the market for a new mascara to try.

Mascara -Maybelline -Full 'N Soft Mascara

I'm pretty loyal to a few mascaras by TheBalm and Rimmel. I have long lashes that hold a curl well, and don't require a lot from mascaras, except that they don't smudge, don't flake, and don't make my lashes crunchy.. I had a coupon and this mascara was basically free, and it's really good! With one good coat I am able to achieve the daytime look I'm looking for.. Definitely recommend.

Lipstick -Maybelline -Color Sensational - Born With It

I typically buy darker colors but wanted to try something lighter. The Color and formula are nice but for me this color is too pink.. I have fair skin, blue eyes and blonde hair at the moment and this color is definitely too light for my skin tone.....


Mascara -Maybelline -Great Lash Mascara

Just ok, not awful, but I wouldn't repurchase. It smudges a little bit by the end of the day and that rarely happens to me with mascara. It does define more than some other mascaras and gives some length but is a tad clumpy. I didn't get the waterproof version and it's still difficult to remove which is really irritating. I've definitely used worse but there are so many better mascaras out there I'll pass on getting this again in the future.


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

The good:
- 110 is a perfect match for my pale, yellow-ish skin - most of the drugstore foundations I've tried are way too pink for me
- blends easily with a beautyblender
- does not break me out
- manages to hide the redness around my nose and cheeks
- it's really affordable
The bad:
- it looks perfect at the beginning but 2-3 hours later my skin starts to produce extra oil because this thing is just too drying even for my oily skin
- after said 2-3 hours somehow I look like I have caked a ton of product on my skin (I only put one layer) and it's painfully obvious I have something on my face, which I hate.
I was going to give it 2 stars but I added one since, for this price, I guess it's not fair to expect much more than what you get.

I decided to try this because of all the great reviews here. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me. One coat wasn't quite enough. However, two coats looked too thick and caked. As the day wore on, my lashes started to look droopy, and I was getting some darkness under my eyes. Also, my eyes started burning. It was hard to remove, and even though I thought I got it all off, the next morning I have more darkness under my eyes, and still some burning. I'd like to try it for a few more days, but I can't stand the burning eyes.

Pressed Powders -Maybelline -Fit Me Set Smooth Pressed Powder

This powder did not work for me and is probably one of the worst I have used as far as mattifying goes.
It does not set the makeup so I only kept it in my purse for touchups and it that was just a fail.
The good was that it gave a refreshed look but only after blotting first and using a small fluffy brush like a kabuki. That was where it ended because not even an hour later it started to break down and the skin would also become shiny again. For someone with oily skin if I was relying on this powder I would have to use it continuously all day. The mattifying effect does not last long at all and it makes me more oily every time I use it. So needless to say it will become cakey and greasy ending in a mess.
I also had a hard time finding a decent shade in this powder.
In the end, I gave up and just settled on the closest one I could find because they either washed me out or were too warm and looked orange on my skin especially after a touch up it would become very obvious.
I wanted to try the matte and poreless powder but have decided I will pass because I have since tried the matte and poreless foundation and that was a total fail for my oily skin as well.
If you have combo or normal skin I think this powder would work much better for you.

You Tube made me buy it! LOL!! I was watching Nikkia Joy who always comments on how small her eyes are and needing mascara that doesn’t have an enormous wand with a formula that doesn’t flake or smudge which is amusing because I can’t recall a video of hers where she isn’t wearing false lashes but anyway, she had about 5 recommended mascaras and this was one of them. Did I run out and get it? Yeah... the first sale on this had me snatching it up to give it a go.

The wand is sort of weird in the sense that it kind of bulges in and out for no apparent reason but the bristles appear to be the same length all over with a slight tapering at the end. I have to say the formula on this is neither too wet nor too dry and I like the way the bristles hug my lashes as I apply the product but... that is where the good times end. You can build it up to get a decent amount of volume and length however I can’t wear this all day without it flaking onto my face. It doesn’t smudge, but there is no hiding the black flakes. I don’t even touch/rub my eyes but there they are like black pepper all over my under eye / upper cheek area. Bummer, because aside from the flaking I actually liked this mascara. The tube is a little bulky and unfortunately this mascara is a no go for me.

This is my favorite powder I have ever used. It is one of the few powders that is light enough for my skin and it covers my blemishes really well. I usually reapply it half way through my day but that doesn't bother me since I am a server and I'm usually sweating and covered in misc food products. The thing that is strange to me about this powder is that I am quite acne prone and felt my skin would prefer Maybelline's Fit me Matte and poreless powder but when I used that it just made me break out worse though had pretty similar coverage. I went back to this one and my skin has thanked me. I've used it for a couple years and will continue to use it.

Mascara -Maybelline -Lash Sensational Mascara

I don't understand the positive reviews for this mascara. Makeup is VERY expensive in Australia, so I always research a product before I buy it. Paula's Choice's reviews and Makeupalley are my go to's for that and both gave this mascara positive reviews. I expected good things! What I got was average coverage. My lashes looked mildly more noticeable. Okay for a casual work look maybe? What made me chuck it in the bin was the epic clumps of product I kept picking off my lashes in the 2 weeks I used it. I do not get why other people like it: not much volume, a tiny bit of curl, lots of clumps. Not for me!

TL;DR: Meh! Clumps, not much volume or curl. I binned it after persisting for 2 weeks. Thumbs down.

I love these eye shadows!! Originally bought the Urban Jungle palette & loved it so much, I went back & got the rest of the collection. I really love the price point & pigment of the colors. They're also the perfect size for travel.

Concealers -Maybelline -DREAM BRIGHTENING CREAMY CONCEALER

foto

I thought this looked interesting. A brightening creamy concealer. This is very creamy and smooth to apply, but it blends away to nothing but some fine shimmer! I'd say I have medium range of dark circles. All this seemed to do was accentuate the dark circles because of the sheerness of the formula and the shimmer. Called attention to it. I wouldn't expect this to cover any sort of acne or issues of that sort. Also it wore away very quickly. Not worth trying.

Lipstick -Maybelline -Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick

If they marketed this as a very pigmented non-matte liquid lipstick I wouldn't have been so disappointed, but it isn't matte in the least. It's very creamy and shiny, and as such it moves around a lot. You do get excellent color payoff, but the longevity is the same as a lipgloss and it MUST be used with a lipliner or primer. The colors are nice and fun and bright, but because the formula and product name are misleading, I'd say that is a pass unless you love thick, pigmented, shiny lipsticks that verge on gloss.

The good
Affordable sleek looking packaging, I found at Target for around $5.99.
There are a lot of shades to choose from. A little disappointed because I thought when the Fit Me line came out they were labeled warm, cool, neutral but maybe that was just L'oreal.
It was not heavy and or uncomfortable on the skin. It was buildable without looking cakey.
The bad
Nice bottle but no pump.
It was a little hard to find the best shade for me especially since there were no testers.
For my skin tone, I tried the shade Sun Beige.
The color blended so nicely when swatched on my chest, neck, and face but when I applied it all over it looked a bit off. My daughter thought it was just the slightest bit too light, my sons said it was perfect, and to me, it looked a little too yellow or maybe even a little olive.
I felt my chest and arms looked a lot pinker/red-toned compared to my face.(weird because so many beauty reps tell me I am warm or olive). It might match better in the fall and winter.
I can see where the "fit me" part comes in because I could technically make this shade work I just rather not.
The worst part is that it did not work for my oily skin.
After only an hour or two, my face was pretty shiny and it was not long before it turned into a complete greasy mess. I could blot or powder and that would refresh the makeup without looking cakey which was really nice but I would need to touch up nearly every hour after that.
Personally, I do not think this is a great foundation for someone with very oily skin or who is on the go and needs a formula that will last a good while before needing to touch up. Paired with the matching powder was a complete fail so I did not use them together but I did find a way to make it work, and that was using my Coty airspun powder and I would have to bake with it under the eyes and anywhere I tend to get really shiny. This really helped to control the shine longer. Even though this did prolong the wear for me, I rather just find a foundation that performs well from the beginning with my oily skin I will have to touch up once or twice already with a good foundation and I rather not touch up more than that.
I think it would work better for combination skin or normal skin who prefers a more matte satin type finish.

The hype is REAL with this one. I hadn't bought it since I was afraid it was kind of overhyped, and had resorted to L'Oreal's Infallible Pro Matte foundation and found this one to be so close in quality! The only thing that keeps this foundation in second place for me is its packaging... Having to decanter the product out is a recipe for disaster, especially when you're as clumsy as I am. Nevertheless, it has really good medium-to-full coverage and lasts a whole work day. I live in the tropics so finding a foundation that won't be reduced to a bunch of pigmented patches on the face is KEY. I was really happy I hopped on the hype train for this one. I have very oily skin and don't even have to set it with powder. TL/DR; Meh packaging, FANTASTIC product!
