Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline - Master Prime Blur + Redness Control

on 9/30/2017 4:59:00 PM

Blur? Yes. Redness Control? Not at all! Despite the colour on the packaging this primer is basically white/transparent (see image), there's nothing green about it and it does nothing to combat redness. It's inexpensive and does make the foundation go on more smoothly but it doesn't really extend the wear of my make-up. Overall an OK primer but not for redness control.

Mascara -Maybelline - Lash Sensational Mascara

This was o so promising. When applying in the morning, my lashes really looked great. Only, in the afternoon, when looking in the mirror, I noticed that my lashes looked like spidery needles, totally dropping down. This mascara is just not for me.

Foundations -Maybelline - Dream Matte Mousse

foto

I remember liking this when I was in high school when it was still a new product. Back then, my skin wasn't really as sensitive as it is now, and it was relatively clear, so I could put whatever I wanted on it and it would be fine. However, I do remember the weird, cakey, goopy-yet-slide-y way this stuff felt and I can safely say that today's version of me would not like this at all. Back in the day the whipped, moussey texture was interesting for a drug store product, but now that I have tried better foundations I know my bar was just set pretty low. Also, the shade range sucked, and it was always too orange for my skin. That didn't stop me from piling it on though. Oh, to be young and have nice skin with little to no effort again.

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

on 9/29/2017 11:08:00 PM

I think this is currently my favorite pressed powder. As I have mentioned in all my reviews, I have oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin. This smooth, finely-milled pressed powder does not break me out and does as good of a job as any product available at keeping the oily shine from getting too ugly. Nothing keeps me matte, but this powder does as good a job as anything else I have tried. It is a better formula than the Wet n Wild Coverall Pressed Powder, which is less finely-milled and kicks up more powder. It's nice for setting my makeup as well as for touch-ups. I think the shade (10) that I have matches me and isn't too pink for my pale + yellow skin tone. I have used it both with a brush and with the sponge. It comes with a nice, relatively big mirror for a compact and so I don't mind the size of the packaging. When I first got it, I easily removed the label from the top of the compact so I have a clean, white compact with a big mirror and touch-up powder for my purse. I don't have any idea whether the salicylic acid in the formula has any effect on preventing clogged pores, but it doesn't seem to do any harm either.

Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Color Elixir (All Shades)

I really liked these lip colors. My favorites were Caramel Infused, Intoxicating Spice, and the limited edition Almond Aura. All of them were MLBB gloss shades that made me look pulled together. I will admit to not liking that they gathered on the insides of your lips, and got on your teeth easily, though...

Love this concealer! It has a great shade range, is super creamy and blendable, and covers up dark circles easily. It does tend to crease a little bit, but I fix that with baking with a bit of translucent powder. Great buy for only 7 dollars!

Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind® Eraser Dark Circles Concealer in Neutralizer

TLDR: It's great for the price. Blends and wears best with a damp makeup sponge and immediate setting powder. Don't sleep in it.

Bought this after watching a few of YouTuber Tati's videos and noticing she uses it pretty consistently. Its so inexpensive that I bought it in both Light and Medium and I use one or both depending on how much sun I've gotten.

Application is pretty straightforward, you crank the bottom until it disperses from the sponge tip. I usually apply it directly onto freshly cleaned and moisturized skin - no primer necessary. I notice that it blends out much more smoothly and evenly when I pat it in with a damp beautyblender than with fingertips.

I also notice that it can crease pretty easily if not promptly set, so after I blend it out I immediately press a thin layer of powder over top to make sure it doesn't go anywhere. The results are that I'm left with even and natural-looking under eye coverage all day at work with minimal creasing or fading. I like it so well I now use it as all-over concealer for the discoloration around my nose, forehead, and chin as well.

The formula does tend to break me out the next day if I wear it for very long periods of time, so I would recommend washing your face as soon as you're home for the day.

Mascara -Maybelline - Define A Lash Waterproof

on 9/28/2017 10:06:00 AM

After looking for a replacement Waterproof Mascara for a long long time I used Covergirl Professional (I think the formula has changed as it doesn't hold the Curl the way it used to) I came across Maybelline Define A Lash. This is the best Waterproof
Mascara I have found in a long long time. I use Makeup for Ever Eye makeup remover to remove with out any problems.
I have Stick Straight Lashes and use an eyelash curler and this holds the Curl all day long without smudging and is also
tear proof.

The problem I am having now it trying to find the Waterproof Define A Lash I really hope this has not been discontinued.

Sept 29, 2017 UPDATE:
Just received email from Maybelline this has been discontinued. Not sure why excellent products keep getting discontinued.

Wow, I definitely did not expect to like this concealer so much! I tried the Fit Me, which honestly sucked for me. No coverage whatsoever. But this! I only use concealer to brighten features and since the brightener is pink, it doesn't match my skintone at all. For undereye circles, I pair this with Collection 3000's concealer and I look fresh for the entire day.

Brows -Maybelline - Brow Precise fiber volumizer

I wish I could like this. It does darken my light blonde brows and makes them seem thicker. However it is clumpy going on and there are visible clumps after it dries. I used the lightest color and it was a great match for blonde hair but I couldn't get past the clumps.

Eyeliner -Maybelline - Define-A-Line Brownish Black

This eyeliner gave me MAJOR raccoon eyes. It never "dries" so when you blink it ends up in the crease of your upper lid and smudges all over. Eventually it ended up in my under eye area. I looked like a wreck. Had to reapply concearler. Threw this thing in the trash immediately.

Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara

I have to agree with most of reviewers, I don't think this mascara is worth the hype.
It probably has sentimental value for many, since it exists for such a long time, and the packaging is very catchy, but I am not liking the effect it has on my lashes.
I have quite long lashes, but not very dense. I don't mind the natural look at all, but what this mascara does is it glues my lashes together without adding any volume, so it seems like i have less volume when I put it on.
I've used it 3 times so far, and every singe time it managed to transfer om my eyelids. Dries very slowly.
Maybe it is nice for someone with very thick lashes who only wants very subtle effect.
