Mascara -Maybelline -Great Lash Mascara

I bought this in purple - because I REALLY LOVE coloured mascara and this seemed like a budget option to the Dior ones.

Sadly, it did NOTHING for me. No volume. No length.

But, I don't give up easily and I spend my time with it, building it and building it! After many coats, all I see is a BEAUTIFUL burgundy colour. But, still no volume or length.

I am so sad. This could have been my colour, if only this product worked like a mascara should. With today's technology, such poor performance has no excuse. Any other cheapy mascara would work better.

Mascara -Maybelline -Great Lash Mascara

I used this product for about a month and absolutely hated it. I have used several mascaras over the years (Rimmel London mascaras, Benefit "They're Real", L'Oreal Butterfly, Maybelline Volum Express the Falsies, Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant...) and what I think I liked about the formulas of those mascaras is that they separated my lashes, made them look longer and dried quickly. However, the only thing that the Great Lash Mascara does is separates your lashes and the brush deserves the credit for that. This is NOT the mascara to use if you need to close your eyes, are in a rush or put on setting spray. The mascara just takes TOO long to dry and smears too much. It is really frustrating to wait for it to dry that I even resorted to finding paper to fan myself to dry the mascara down. I think the only reason I would recommend this mascara is if you are a total beginner to using mascara and have a lot of time on your hands. If you are not a beginner to mascara (like myself), I would not even bother to try to this. I ended up throwing it out and buying a different mascara instead.


Eyeliner -Maybelline -Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (All Shades)

I really like this eye liner I bought it in the brown shade,it does smudge initially a little on to the lower lid which some other eye liners including pencils do too,but then it stays on for many hours.I find the easiest best way to apply it on my top lid is to use a foam eye shadow applicator better than the brush it came with,although it's a nice eye liner brush too.


Highlighters -Maybelline -Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter in 100 Light Iridescent

This is my favorite highlighter. The shade is perfect for fair toned ladies - it's a barely discernible pink tone with a very subtle shimmer. No obvious chunks of glitter or gold sheen like many highlighters have. I've been curious about the Glossier haloscopes but I can't imagine they perform much better than this.

Lipstick -Maybelline -Super Stay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick

foto

Let me start by saying I DO NOT like matte lip products....at all. I don't like my lips feeling or looking dry, and I don't like the weird way they wear off...I am not a fan. However, that being said, this is the ONE AND ONLY matte lip product that I actually like, and wear frequently! It goes on very smooth and pigmented, the applicator wand works really well for getting a precise line and applying the product. Also, the product doesn't dry down to a completely dry matte, it keeps the slightest amount of tackiness to it, which I actually prefer, because then it doesn't feel so uncomfortable to wear, and it LASTS. Now, I will say that because I am not a fan of matte lip products that I almost always top a matte lip product with a gloss, and with most matte products that will completely ruin them. However, when I do that with this product it still wears a long time, and when it does wear off, it does so evenly and without leaving a weird ring of color on your lips. My one and ONLY gripe with this product is that the color of the tube doesn't match very well to the color of the product. I bought this in Loyalist thinking it was going to be a pale pink, because that's the color of the tube, it is actually more of a peachy nude. I wish they'd come out with a line of nudes and a true pale pink, but other than that one gripe, I still think it's one of the best matte lip products on the market.

Loose Powders -Maybelline -Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Loose Powder

foto

I really do like this loose setting powder. I use it 2 ways, the first being to set my undereye concealer with a damp BB, the second to set my whole face with a large fluffy brush. It works for both very well. I find that it keeps my makeup in place and keeps the oily spots on my forehead and nose nice and matte. It dies have a nice blurred pore effect that I almost never find in a powder. It also doesn't settle into my smile lines, nor into the little fine lines underneath my eyes. The only reason I don't give this 5 lippies is two-fold. It has small particles of sparkle in it, which is a bit noticeable when seen up close. The second reason is because the flashback on this powder is BAD! I've never experienced flashback with a face powder before until this. I was at my hubby's holiday party recently where they had a pro photographer. I ruined every shot I was in because my face was distorted from the flashback going on. So to summarize, I will keep using this because it looks fantastic IRL, but for photography I'll stick to other powders. Will repurchase and do recommend.

Powder -Maybelline -Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder

Tried this out after hearing it’s similar to my holy grail Laura Mercier Translucent powder. I’m really impressed so far!! I have ridiculously oily skin and this paired with my Hourglass Mineral Veil primer and Revlon Colourstay foundation keep me matte for hours only needing a little touch up and keeps my makeup looking nice and not cakey from 6:00AM-9:00PM!! This sets your makeup super matte so if you like a dewy finish, be aware of that. On the website it claims to have a sheer tint... no kidding! I’m usually the second lightest or lightest shade of foundation and I got this powder in 05 Fair.. lightens my foundation up about a shade or two lighter. Not terrible since I can fix that with bronzer. Only complaint is the packaging. Most loose powders i screw the cap on slightly then shake it upside down to get product out, but that doesn’t work with this product. Actually, it’s extremly hard to get product into the cap of this. I pour the powder into a larger cap of a powder i don’t use anymore. Who though square packaging was a good idea..? Anyways. Absolutely love this stuff and will definitely repurchase before I spend $60 on Laura Mercier again!

I like how the packaging looks like a flower petal, bought it on a whim and surprised it kinda lives up to its adverts. I straight lashes and they're relatively thin I guess and this mascara makes them more lush in an instant and you can see the difference instantly. Probably one of the best mascaras I've tried, and I think this product does very very well considering it's a drugstore mascara.

Bought this for my mom and surprised that it works very well to make your pores less prominent and makes your skin surface smoother and ready to be applied with makeup. My mom loves this product too, she has dry skin and some visible pores and this primer helps makes her skin just smoother and better.

I can't believe this is a drugstore cult favorite. It clumps my lashes every time I use it and it is hard to wash off. It also smudges very easily. The wand is nothing more than ordinary and does nothing for my lashes. I have no idea why people like this mascara!

First thing to do is to throw out that brush girl because it is shit incarnate. The eyeliner is pretty good for drugstore...goes on smoothly...minimal transfer...can be fixed by powdering eyelids no doubt.

This lip stain is awful. It is thick and clumpy, and leaves your lips shriveled and dry. It also wears off unevenly, like in dry chunks. I don't get why it was so hyped.

I am sure they run some tests before releasing a new product on the market so I would like to compliment Maybelline and its testers on this shiny glossy never drying liquid lipstick. What? it's suppposed to be matte??
