Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline New York -Master Camo Color Corrector Pen

So why didn’t anyone tell me black women can use yellow corrector? Cause the orange and red correctors I used didn’t work. Apparently my dark circles are purple/black not bluish. I curiously decided to try the Maybelline master Camo yellow corrector and yes hun it cancelled out my purple/black dark circles. And that was before I put on my foundation. Next I’ll see how it works with my foundation. Did I mention I’m dark skinned not at all light or medium as the package suggests who uses it. But I just got tired of seeing my dark circles.

Brows -Maybelline New York -Expert Eyes Twin Brow & Eye Pencils

foto

I have used these in "Blonde" a cool taupe, "Light Brown" very light, very warm chestnut, "Medium Brown" too light to be a medium and also quite warm/red toned, and my current go to "Dark Brown", which is also warm toned, and isn't dark at all. "Dark Brown" actually works really well with my medium golden blonde hair, and light brown brows. Although the shades could use some cooler toned options, I really like the formula of these, because it is not overly stiff, but not so soft that it smudges/disappears throughout the day. These twin pencils help me fill in my brows, while leaving them very natural looking. I don't go for harsh, drawn on brows, I just want them to look naturally full and more polished. These get the job done for under $4. Would repurchase!

Eyeliner -Maybelline New York -Define-A-Line Eyeliner in Ebony Black

I would probably rate this 3.5 lippies...it has it's pro's and con's. I like that the formula is soft, and applies deep/rich color easily, including on the waterline. The tradeoff for the soft gliding formula, is that it smudges easily. The price is fair at around $5, and you get a good amount of product, but I'm honestly not sure if I would repurchase!

I used this foundation a lot in my 20's and it was okay, it gave me some of the coverage I need but I could never find a good match for my complexion, the price is kind of high in my opinion for a drugstore brand but all in all it is an okay foundation. I no longer use it but it may work for other women who are on somewhat of a budget.

I like it for special occasions but it is too hard to remove to put on a daily basis as I don't want to loose lashes every day.

The consistency of this concealer is lovely and blends well into the skin for a flawless finish without settling into lines. The coverage is on the light side (as the package states) so it doesn't cover my severe dark circles completely (no concealer ever has) but it's worth buying this again simply for the how well it blends. The applicator is very easy to use and you can build up the product. It gives you full control.

Eye Shadow -Maybelline New York -Eyestudio ColorTattoo Leather 24HR Cream Gel Eye Shadow- Creamy Beige

A nice creamy, taupey brown that provides easy and subtle definition as an all-over lid shade. It's a true standalone product, great for a no-makeup makeup look, but it has some texture issues compared to the other shades in its line. My pot of "Bad to the Bronze" is ancient and still going strong, but this one's a lot stiffer, doesn't really warm up on my finger, tends to ball up and crack in the pan and is drying out quickly despite the fact that I've only had it for a couple months. I also don't appreciate Maybelline's ridiculous claim that it lasts 24 hours. I work 12 hour shifts and I can tell you definitively that it starts looking worse for wear around hour #10. Obviously, that longevity would be incredible in any other eyeshadow that hadn't lied and inflated the real figure by 250%, but what can I say? False advertising rankles me.

Mascara -Maybelline New York -Great Lash Lots of Lashes

on 12/11/2018 1:17:00 PM

foto

The thing I love the most about this mascara is that it holds a curl. I've been looking for a non-waterproof mascara that will hold a curl for years and who knew it would be a less than $5 Maybelline mascara! Now I can curl my lashes before applying mascara which means so much less lash damage than curling after mascara. It also does a great job of grabbing all my lashes. It's a bit spidery looking with the first few uses but after it thickens up a bit it's much better.
In case anyone is interested, I tried Great Lash Big mascara and it did not hold a curl. My lashes drooped like they do with other mascaras.

I saw these on sale for $1.99, and bought several colors. I love the Refreshing Red over a light pink lipstick, the color lasted for a few hours which is not bad. I also like the texture and the good pigmentation

The shade molten gold is straight up orange on pale complexions. I am curious to try the other shades because this one is BLINDING. But be warned if you’re pale.

Powder -Maybelline New York -Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder

this powder is a smooth maker out of my skin, smoothed out fine lines, under eye bags and pores. My pictures look amazing and airbrushed. zero flash back. blends well, keeps my makeup on especially with a light set of makeup spray. I cant rave enough. I dust it under my eyes cheeks, chin and sometimes forehead and neck with a smaller powder brush, let it set, and sweep a super matte powder over it for pictures. Looks so high end it's silly. Relieved my wallet can rest and I can still look flawless. <3 I hope they never discontinue it ever!

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

I picked this up at local drugstore out of curiosity for I’ve heard praises for this foundation. I’m NC 25-30, dry skin, and i occasionally get whiteheads here and there but nothing major. I got this in Sand Beige 210, medium shade with yellow/warm undertone.

I have so many questions. Like why does this foundation have no pump or whatever? The texture is okay, as expected from drugstore foundation (even so,Catrice and Bourjois or even Revlon do have better texture). I get the ‘grainy’ feeling although I shake the bottle well before using.

I normally use my blending/buff brush, but boy this one is streaky, and why is it so orange? I know I have strong yellow undertone, but I am not orange!
After two hours or so in the humid equatorial climate, this foundation sets into my fine lines, corner of my nose, accentuate my bumps, and digs into my pores. My poor, easily clogged, pores. It doesnt feel greasy, but it does look greasy, not dewy. It is unflattering in every way. I look like an orange glazed donut.

It does feel light under 20 degree C, but above that, it’s sticky and wet and wrong. So wrong.

Not going to buy this again ever.

Eye Shadow -Maybelline New York -Eyestudio ColorTattoo Metal 24HR Cream Gel Eye Shadow - Barely Branded

Love itttt :)

I bought my second batch. Price is reasonable since it lasts for me. ( only wear makeup occasionally ) I use it as a eyeshadow, highlighter for cheeks,brow bone and a eyeshadow base. If you have the “taupe shade” and “bad to the bronze” it can be used as a subtle contour to some people. lasting power is great (I have oily lids for some reason )

I don't like this mascara. First of all the brush is pointy and hurts my eyelid. Secondly, the formula is wet and does not give volume to the lashes.
