Lipstick -Maybelline -Matte Metallics-Molten Bronze

on 11/20/2017 7:26:00 PM

This is a strange, weird and interesting shade of lipstick. I will call this my Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde color. Some days it goes on a deep reddish plummy brown with a greenish gold shift and other days, a dirt brown with a green shift. If I put a lip balm on before, it changed into a deep brownish berry with a metallic green/gold dusting. If I lightly layer it over Plum Perfect or any red/berry lipstick, again it changes the color. It also looked very dark on my face (I wore it for Halloween). As mentioned, it applies patchy, even with lip balm underneath. I wouldn't call this matte, it is too creamy and this didn't last long on my lips. It leaves a very faint stain. Same problem with the other colors in this line, (I also bought Hot Lava, an orangey red with gold shift but turned bright reddish pink on me). Won't buy this again. I'll stick with my Warm Me Up from the regular line.


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

First of all, this product does not come in my shade. I’m from Southeast Asia with light yellow undertone skin and I’ve tried about 5 different shades. The closest shade I found was classic ivory, but it was still too cool for my skin color. This was very disappointing because the product itself wasn’t that bad. It blends well, but it does get oily after a while. I tried this product out because of all the hype and it was pretty decent. However, I’m not a huge fan of the bottle because when I threw it out I felt there were still some product left inside. I would definitely buy this product again if it has my shade!

I enjoy using these pallette in this City Mini Collection they have a better quality pigmentation in comparison to the Nudes line.The packaging is just a simple transparent package nothing fancy but the shadows blend well,easy to build up give a moderate amount of kick back, and will give a good 8 hrs for staying power over all a good drugstore line from maybelline.

I tried this foundation a couple years ago and my skin did not react well to it. My hormones were going crazy then so I decided to retry it this summer and it works great! It looks beautiful on my oily skin for most of the day and I can extend the wear by blotting and retouching where needed (nose, chin, forehead). I do not have a lot to cover so it's medium finish works great for me. It looks like my skin, but better.


Mascara -Maybelline -Great Lash Mascara Waterproof

This was not waterproof for me. It didn't survive a hot tub, it didn't survive swimming.
Neither did it add much volume or length to my lashes, which is fine since I like a natural look, but I was disappointed that after being in various types of water over different days, that it didn't even stay on in the water for me :(


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

I bought this after reading positive review on various websites, including this one. When i saw it on sale at my local H&M I was quick to pick it up. At first i liked it, it gave me porcelain skin and had all these acne fighting ingredients. I have been struggling with acne for 5 years, i get these closed comedones all over my cheek that are really hard to remove, almost every oil i use clogs my skin up. At the time i purchased this powder my skin was doing much better I only got maybe 5-6 closed comedones on my face in total, but it soon became worse and i couldn't figure out why.

Anyway when i packed for vacation I only packed my loose setting powder from nyx in order to save room. On vacation my face cleared up entirely, sea water really helps, the comedones just popped out. Terrified of the acne coming back I only used the same products I used on vacation for months after. When I ran out of my nyx powder I went back to the betterskin and then little by little I saw my skin getting clogged up again, and the only thing new in my regimen is this powder.

I couldn't believe it, this was supposed to help with my skin not ruin it. So I checked the ingredient list and surprise, surprise what did i find hydrogenated palm oil, which not only has a rating 4-5 on the comedogenic scale but also is awful for the environment since rainforests are being destroyed in order to make room for palm oil plantations. So disappointed in this product and maybelline in general, but im also disappointed in myself for not checking the ingredient list. Def do not recommend, plenty of other products that deliver similar and better results.

this product went straight to the trash.

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

foto

Maybelline is one of my favorite drugstore brands and so I was excited to test out this product.

The Maybelline Master Fixt Setting+Perfecting Powder is good for an everyday use. I find myself reaching for it on a daily basis. It's affordable and does an incredible job at mattifying and making the skin appear poreless. My crater-like skin looks super smooth with the application of this product.

However, it is not a good setting when taking pictures or for special occasions. It does leave a white sheen across the skin and has terrible flashback in pictures.

I know I said it leaves a white sheen but the white sheen isn't too noticeable. I just won't be wearing this product for pictures ever. I'm definitely repurchasing it when I run out because of the affordability of it and its ability to do its job.

Blush -Maybelline -Face studio blush in dare to pink

Well, I got it from the pound shop, but GOOD LORD what the hell even is this? I couldn’t open it!

When I eventually did manage to prize the lid open (You have to push it with your fingers and the lid pivots round and flips up) it was a very simple pressed powder blush, with lots of pigment in a very hot, almost neon pink. It was pretty cool, for some reason I see it more as a contour than a blush...hot pink contour for everyday? could work!

Anyway, watch me make a fool out of myself trying to get it open here:

Eye Shadow -Maybelline -New York The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette

These are great little palettes. So easy to throw in a purse. Sturdy plastic case. I have bought only three so far. Graffiti Pop, Chill Brunch and Downtown Sunrise. Chill Brunch is my favorite of the three. Taupe shades with a touch of pink and a purple shade I can use as liner! I already ditched Maybelline's Nudes palettes in favor of them. These have more pigment. Each palette have at least one shade of glitter, and easy to avoid if you don't like glitter. They stay on my lids pretty well with primer, but fades fast without. Downtown Sunrise is my second favorite with that orange shade. I don't usually do orange/red shades, but this one is like a clear orange if that makes sense. Not too warm or reddish. And that right upper corner shade is beautiful. A rose gold? Not sure but it is gorgeous! Graffiti Pop has that teal and dark purple colors that I love, too, cause I needed some color in my collection.

Lipstick -Maybelline -Colorsensational lipstick in petal pink

on 11/18/2017 11:32:00 AM

I thought that this lipstick had a slightly greasy consistency...but I have dry lips so I didn’t mind that it was more on the moisturising side... this petal pink shade was too pale for me, and I did add some liquid lip tint over the top to add a bit more dimension to the lips.

I was comparing this in my head to the collection 2000 lipsticks, which always deliver great colour and wearability, and the formula felt similar to the collection 2000 lipsticks.

It was just a bit too pale for me!

Watch me give it a go here:

Foundations -Maybelline -Dream Matte Mousse

This is an amazing foundation the finish is a soft matt it gives excellent coverage I was SHOCK the first time I tried this foundation. essences also have a similar type of foundation that gives the same effect as the maybelline dream matt mouse they both gives a good eight (8) hours of wear before my oils seeps through on my oily skin I have a lot of foundations in my makeup collection and this is one of my "go to" foundation . If maybelline never come out with another foundation and leave this one on the shelves and upgrade the line with more shades NOT the FORMULA ..formula is excellent and one more good thing about this it does not oxidise I have re purchased many times and will continue to .this foundation is truly one of the hidden gems in the drug store.

This is a great concealer for the price. I picked up Medium and Medium/deep which both work really well for my skin tone (one for brightening, one for correcting). The formula is very smooth and easy to blend and dries down to a satin finish on me. The coverage is medium buildable, it does a good job of covering my dark circles and making me look more awake but I find my dark lines do still peak through so I would need a corrector if I wanted to look flawless. I have to set this with a powder otherwise I find it creases really quickly and settles into fine lines, but honestly haven't come across a concealer that hasn't. I've had this concealer for 5 months and I still have so much product left since you only need a small amount.

Brows -Maybelline -Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara

This is not a bad product IF you have thick brows and can find one of the colors that works for you. I used the color,soft brown and it was a decent match since I have my very light brows tinted. Soft brown isn't very dark at all and I have blonde hair. My brows are not very thick and it looked sort of painted on but one of my friends has nice, thick brows and she uses it. Her eyebrows always look amazing. The little ball thing on the end works for her. She uses 2 of them at a time and on one of them she just snipped the ball off of the tip which leaves a nice small, short brush about the same length as the Gimme Brow brush, for the tail end of the brow. It doesn't build the brow much but it does add color and keep them neatly in place all day. I finished the tube but would not repurchase because it just doesn't look that natural on me and my brows are not thick enough, I have to work on them with a pencil to fill them in. My friend with thick brows just outlines with a pencil then swipes it on and it looks great on her. It's readily available in any drugstore for around 5.00-5.50, even less if you catch the sales. There is not much product in it and it only lasted me about a month and I didn't even use it every day, but I did waste a lot wiping it off and trying to make it work.

I like this concealer. I use it under my eyes and it does the job nicely. I use 20 and sometimes 25. I wouldn't call it heavy duty. It's light weight, decent coervage. Staying power is ok. For the price point, this is a good product. I will continue to have on hand.
