Liquid -Maybelline New York -Superstay 24HR Full Coverage Foundation

For a person who doesn't necessarily loves full coverage, I quite like this foundation. It can grab to my dry patches but mixing in a few drops of a liquid highlighter or strobing cream (or oil) makes it look amazing! It stays on my skin for the whole day, its buildable to a really full coverage for special occasions. It does get into my smile lines but Its not something that bothers me that much.
The foundation itself don't feel heavy on my face, my other face products blend nicely on top of it and I would repurchase it again.

I wanted this highlighter for so long, but I was a bit sceptic..either way I bought it and at first glance it wasn't really what I was expecting but it was kinda okay. The more i used it the less I liked it because I found that it moved my foundation underneath and looked patchy. So I decided to stop using it and then after some time I wanted to play with it again but this time I put it underneath my foundation for that extra ''glow from within'' and it looked super nice. I used it couple more times and I must say that I enjoy it now but not that much that I would repurchase it again.

Eyeliner -Maybelline New York -Lasting Drama Light Eyeliner Pencil

I bought this "light liner" in Moonlight Purple and that is the reason for my review. I've used liner off and on through the decades, but my prominent upper lids look best with shadow, which I'm allergic to now. I don't like the harsh look of a defined line on my very visible lids, but I have olive green eyes and can wear certain purple shades so I thought I'd give this a try after only doing mascara for 5 months.

Moonlight Purple is a metallic lilac color that is very mid-'80s (when I started wearing makeup) and I really, really love it! I normally like a fig color so this was a surprise, especially as trendy makeup that looks good on a 20-something doesn't necessarily look good on a 40-something. I feel a bit nostalgic about this color and am having some fun when I catch it in the mirror. I honestly didn't think it would look good as it's a cool tone and I have warm, light olive skin, but it looks very pretty and is brightening, as advertised. It also doesn't highlight my camouflaged under-eye circles. This pencil stays put all day for me, but I do apply mineral powder over my moisturizer and have dry skin as I'm in my 40s.

Per the packaging, I love that it's automatic and so easy to apply. The only reason I gave the product 4 stars is that I think gel pencils are just cleaner. This does go on clean and evenly, but after a few days, there's a bit of residue on the side of the plastic tip and the liner tip is a little soft and round, which is hardly a big deal in this light shade and the line thickness is still perfect for me. As it's not a gel liner and has more of a creamy-base, I did also have the tip break off today, which was annoying, but I think the creaminess is what makes the color so pretty and more flattering than gels for those of us who are older and don't need harsh lines on our faces. This color is a trend so for under $5 at Walmart, get it while it lasts--even those of us who wore metallic pastels over 30 years ago.

Pros:
Really does super stay and won't come off without the eraser and lots of work :)
Color is beautiful and I have actually bought a few (Heroin, Voyager, and Pioneer)
Pigment is wonderful

Cons:
Smell is kind of gross
The application requires you to be able to paint as it is like a brush, not a gloss stick or a lipstick
Does not blot or spread well

I have blonde, fine, fair lashes that need mascara. This is my new favourite along with my old favourite Max Factor Masterpiece Max. It's not wet and sloppy and doesn't clump my lashes like so many others. Have repurchased. I got it for £8.99 in the UK at Savers.


Liquid -Maybelline New York -Fit Me! Dewy/Hydrate and Smooth (formerly Fit Me)

My skin is dry. I dont have huge problem areas, the occasional pimple, some redness on my cheeks, some large pores. But nothing too bad to cover.

This foundation gives me a beautiful medium coverage dewy finish. It feels lightweight on my skin, and it lasts me all day. I do set it with kVd powder. It settles slightly in some fine lines, but nothing more than most foundations. I used to work at sephora and this works better than all the foundations I own. I dont like a heavy cakey feel or look. This remains natural-ish and I'll continue to use it. It is my favorite drugstore and high end foundation.

Mascara -Maybelline New York -Lash Sensational Mascara

My holy grail mascara. I've repurchased over 5 times and will continue to.
Lash Sensational lengthens and gives volume to my lashes beautifully. It has a creamy formula, not too runny and not too dry. It does not flake, smudge or irritate my eyes (I wear contacts daily). This can be layered on but note that after 3 coats it will start to clump your lashes together so I usually don't push it past that. The only thing I will mention is that it isn't the greatest at separation, but it's nothing a run through with a clean mascara wand can't fix.

The best part about this foundation is how portable it is. The little package makes it great for travel because you can take it with you and you have a mirror and applicator. I bought mine in the shade Porcelain and for my light skin is matches well though a tiny bit of oxidation. The finish is light to medium coverage and quite a bit shiny (similar to the IT cosmetics CC). I find it best to use the NYX HD powder to use over it in order to get rid of the shine. I have much more fine powder from Too Faced but it doesn't make the shine disappear. Overall it is a natural finish which I really like. For oily skin, it doesn't hold up on my nose and t-zone. I wouldn't use this on a day where I need my make up to last. I might use this foundation if I'm at home more or traveling where I could touch it up on the go. The biggest downside I would say is how long the foundation lasts. I haven't used it all that much but I find it harder and harder to get foundation on the applicator. Again, this would be ok for a trip, but not to keep long-term at home.

I have this in Poet, a light peach-nude shade. I am olive-skinned and this shade is too light for me but I'm not judging it for that—not its fault. I have historically been unable to wear a liquid lip, but this is a great formulation at a good price. There are some very nice, interesting yet flattering-seeming shades in the line too. My mom has one of the brighter shades and it's definitely easier to work with than Poet. These are bulletproof. They don't trash your lips (they don't moisturize them though lol) and wear with grace.

Being someone who is very lazy about reapplying lipstick, I love a good long lasting lipstick. With that said, I'm usually not a fan of matte liquid lipsticks because most of them that I have tried are dry and emphasizes the lines on my lips. Before I found this, I used Rimmel Provocalips (this one has a two part with a gloss that you apply after the color dries down). That one is long lasting, however, after a week of use, my lips are so dry and peels like crazy. I stopped wearing long lasting liquid lipsticks because I was worried that all long lasting liquid lipsticks would do this.

Pros:
Lasts a long time
Good value
Good nude shade selection
Smells nice
Doesn't dry your lips out

Cons:
If you use bold colors, the way it wears off (flaking from inside the lips out) may look strange.
Takes a while to fully dry down
It's sticky after it dries down
Need oil cleanser/cleansing balm to fully remove

The shade selection is not bad, as Maybelline released some nude colors recently. I'm NC20 and use Lover from their core collection and Seductress from their new collection (LOVE Seductress, it reminds me of MAC Velvet Teddy). The pointy applicator is nice, I like that I can apply the product on my entire lip without having to re-dip. It smells like frosting/bakery and has no taste or tingle upon application. The application is very smooth, but it does take about 15 minutes to fully dry down (I usually do my lips while I do the rest of my face while it dries down). Once dried/locked down, it doesn't go anywhere: I have eaten oily food, drank multiple beverages, and at the end of the day 8-10 hours, it still looks great. It wears from the inside of my lips outwards. The wear isn't the most elegant as it does looks like chunks are coming out. However, since the colors I choose are pretty close to my natural lip color, I don't see this as a problem. The way it feels after it dries down is not dry, but sticky. It's not sticky like a regular lipgloss (you know when your long hair gets stuck to your lips on a windy day? Not that kind of sticky, but more like a dry-sticky). If you like to press your lips together and you expect a buttery smooth finish, you will not get it from this lipstick. I personally don't mind the sticky because it does NOT dry out my lips after a week. Removing it is not a problem if you use an oil cleanser/cleansing balm.

For me, the pros far outweighs the cons. This is HG status for me, knowing that I can wear this all day and not have to re-apply my lipstick is a blessing.

I’m not sold on setting sprays. I still believe either the foundation sets without transferring and lasts or it doesn’t. It comes down to the unique interaction between my skin, the foundation formula and what I’m liking at this stage in my life. My skin is tending dry with age and I’m not loving a super matte look, I prefer a light to medium coverage that doesn’t transfer and doesn’t settle into the crevices on my face that are proof of a life well lived. So, setting sprays, I want something that doesn’t set to a mask, doesn’t matting my face but that helps make my face look less powdery. Living in a hot humid climate it would be nice to have a magic product that forces your make up to stay in place when it’s so humid that your body is wet with sweat, but I doubt such a product exists. This product isn’t it. What it does do is spray a fine mist all over my face and helps melt the powders into the foundation and helps me achieve a less made up look. I want to look like I’m wearing very little makeup, my skin yet better. This leaves my skin feeling fresh, dries down quickly and does a nice finishing spray job. It’s also good for spraying your brush when foiling shadows I think for the price this is a nice little product.

Light coverage fades off within an hour so basically useless. Powdery and cakey over dry patches. Clogs large pores like crazy. Just 2 days of trying to wear this and I had visibly clogged pores full of makeup. Yuk! Avoid like the plague if you have any large pores or are prone to cystic acne. Just check the ingredients list. The first ingredient is a Palmitate (highly comedogenic/acne causing). Why??
