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

Okay, so it is extremely difficult to find my foundation shade especially in where I live because the foundation will be too light or too dark. Makeup products are also quite expensive. Even though I might get an okayish color, I might not like the way the product applies to my skin or the consistency. However, I love this foundation! I use the shade 122. The shade has a yellowish skin color base which is perfect for my yellow skin tone. Would buy it again!

Definitely waterproof and stays on, I found it works better as a second layer over another mascara and it’s not great for length or grabbing each lash and seperating! Good for thickness and dark black colour however but does not make lashes appear long! When used over a non waterproof mascara with a comb brush it acts as a non budge waterproof mascara and stays on even if slept in 🙈

Wow! It’s lightweight but offers major coverage! I’m 44 and it’s covering brown spots with ease. I bought to hide an unsightly pimple on my lip and what a major surprise. Love love love!

Lipstick -Maybelline New York -Color Sensational in Bare All

I love this type of color, since my skin looses all it's sun kiss tan so so quickly. I've always liked super light colors, it's like the early 2k" pink frost" without the frost.
I do not wear any other color, hands down the only lipstick I've actually liked.

However, the other reviewers I def agree about the dryness aspect. For me the color makes up for it. I make lip balms, beeswax cocoa + shae + varying diff oil(s) + chamomile CO2 extract .I put it on then this lipstick, and it's smooth and even.

It's probably a love it or hate it color. Regarding the price, the drying aspect is not a deal breaker since it wears perfect over a good balm. I've had it a long while now and I haven't managed to lose it.


Lipstick -Maybelline New York -Color Sensational Lipstick - Warm Me Up

Warm Me Up is kinda brown, kinda mauve, and kinda pink - all the same time! This makes it hard to describe (and even capture on camera since you can't see the multi-color aspect) but I agree with the reviews online that it looks a bit like Mac Brave. When swatched on my hand there's a subtle shimmer (much like the popular Maybelline shade Born With It, which has a similar formula to Warm Me Up). But on the lips, you cannot see any hint of glitter, and it has a satin finish. Despite the name, Warm Me Up is actually a neutral color (any hint of warm undertones on my blue toned skin look like garbage on me). The coloring of this shade makes my skin look really alive and vibrant, which is probably what they mean by "Warm" me up.

I found this mascara to do absolutely nothing but frustrate me. I still can’t decide if it’s the wand or the formula or both, but nothing seems to do anything. The wand is very very light weight which I felt had 0 affect on lashes- I could barely feel the brush on my lashes. And the mascara seems to need 6-10 coats to barely show up! I see no pigment, no curve, no length or anything to my lashes. It’s like using pretend makeup. Sorry for such a bad review, but this is my experience with this and drugstore or not, I don’t like throwing money out.

I have pigmented lips and this goes on sheer on me. Layering several times does not work, it cannot cover the dark edges of my lips. Also doesn't last on me. Texture is okay, though.

I bought two colors of this lipstick after reading all the rave reviews about how long lasting this is. I am very disappointed to find out that this does not work on me. It is not long lasting on me, even compared to lipsticks that are only one-third of its price (this is sold for more than $10 USD in my country). It crumbles in the inner part of my mouth, fading starts there even before I eat. It goes on dry, and the colors look so bad on me, the mauve color people rave about looks like tipex on me. The red one also doesn't suit me. I tried several times to make this work, but just didn't work on me. I gave mine away.
PS. I'm not saying all Maybelline products are bad, I used to love their bullet lipstick in the black packaging (sorry I forget the name). That one went smoothly, affordable and had great color selection even though I have to reapply them often.

The product takes forever to come up onto the sponge when you first open it. I use it for my under-eye area and the coverage is ok but not great. The concealer quickly settles into creases and makes the eye area appear dry. I wouldn't buy this again.

Has a good shade range and I found a good shade match for me which is 220. It sure is matte for the first 2 hours since I live in a tropical country. Can't agree that it is poreless because without a primer I can see it ettling in my pores.

I know Maybelline means well when they come out with products like this, but the one thing I wish they would do is get the shades right. Not all women undertones are neutral or beige. It just seems like all Maybelline shades have those kind of undertones, and it drives me nuts. Anywho, I purchased this and it's really not half bad....BUT...The only thing is that you have to blend to no end and fast to get it to look halfway decent. The coverage is really nice...for a bit., and that's probably the only thing I like. It does stay on, somewhat, but after a while, it separates, and your skin starts to poke through, so I had to blot powder on my t-zone by Noonish, which proved to be annoying. Would I repurchase??? No. But I do feel this formula could work on someone with normal skin, and not oily like mine. Sorry, Maybelline.

This was my first foundation ever and I was really excited for it! I thought that the reasons why I didn't like this foundation was because it was my first one, but once I tried other ones... Well, then I knew.

This foundation is matte (duh), which is why I tried it in the first place (and it's cheap). Because I am combination skin and there are some oily parts on my face that need it, anyone would logically try this foundation. I think this is where the problem grows. Once I add moisturizer to the dryer parts of my face, it's like all my face is now all-normal. Having a matte foundation means it will be on the dryer side and I did my best to make my face all on the same level. I'm not a fan of having a shiny face, so I hoped that this would eliminate that aspect. The foundation IS matte, but poreless? This foundation pronounced every single imperfection on my face and made the acne I tried to hide, look worse. My pores often were pronounced. Spots where I moisturized had dry patches due to the matte finish (some parts looked normal, other had weird dry patches). You'd think, "Oh, what about her oily parts of her face?" I liked how it looked sometimes, other times it looked kind of cakey without putting a lot of product on. This foundation constantly felt like it was sitting on top of my face, making me feel so uncomfortable for a long time. I thought this was normal for foundations, until I tried other ones. And finally, it oxidizes. I have yellow under-tones but often, this foundation would steer into orange and it was obvious since I blend down to my neck. Because of the lack of pump, I'd use the back of my hand and it'd oxidizes there too!! There was sometimes a stark difference on my face. It'd be fine at home, but a mess when I was out. Speaking of blending, this product must be blended well because of the formula, it would look kinda ashy sometimes.

I will say that this product reacted well to other powder products, like blush. I do not think you would need powder for this, but I did not use powder to bake or set (since it was my first foundation and I was trying to figure stuff out). Especially with how this foundation finished for me, it's quite matte enough. This product does have a light scent, but it wasn't bad. Just normal foundation smell. It does not come with a pump, which is fine for me, and I would put some on the back of my hand. It was easy to put left-over product back in. The color wasn't the best either. For the price, I would definitely say "buy it" if you've been meaning to do so, and honestly, there is no way you will know how this will react on your skin unless you do. If you're adamant on it, do it. I was and I thought it'd work for me, it didn't.

I do not recommend this product.


Lipstick -Maybelline New York -Gone Greige

Didn't think I could pull off a grey toned lipsticks since many I've tried make me look post-mortem. But this one has a spicy undertone that makes it combine glamorously with my yellow undertoned skin. It's a statement color but not too "out there" if you know what I mean. I've worn this for college and my friends have gotten the same shade and love it as well.
The formula is matte but not too dry, very opaque, and very durable on the lips after meals.
I definitely recommend this if you want something bold but classy at the same time!

I tried this out in the colour spicy mauve, as the light nude shade looked too light. I liked the colour, but it's more of a terracotta-red-pink-brown than mauve. The shades are decent, but not a huge spectrum from light to dark as there are only 7 or 8 shades.

What I didn't like about this was the way it felt on my lips the whole time I wore it. It was very shiny but also so so oily feeling. It felt like I had just eaten the greasiest fried chicken and had gotten grease on my lips, and I was very conscious of the feeling the whole day I wore it. It feels like it's about to slide off your lips onto your chin or wherever and I had to be very careful talking and whatnot. Just not a comfortable lip to wear.

This may be because I had a darker colour (which I have since passed on), and you may not have to be as careful with a lighter colour but it just wasn't worth the discomfort for me. I will be passing on the rest of the line.

So after reading great reviews about this product I decided to give it a go. I do have semi-serious dark circles under my eyes. I first found the consistency of this product to be too runny. After applying it to the circles under my eyes and trying to blend it , it seemed like my skin had only absorbed the product and the circles were still smiling at me in the mirror. If you're a person in need of full coverage under the eyes - this product is not for you.
