This review is for the product in the pink bottle. I was excited to try this product because all the rave in social media, but I should have come to MakeupAlley before trying it. At the beginning, I noticed that it was not really effective to remove my sunscreen completely, I do not use too much makeup, just powder and blush, but I noticed that the cotton pad was still dirty when I followed with …Read more

The color is a pretty pinkish coral, I actually like it. The real problem is the formula. This thing seriously stains your lips and fades unevenly leaving a hideous color ring on your lips. It also clings to any dead skin you have. It is really hard to remove. The next day you will be peeling your lips to completely taking it off. I hate this lipsticks.

I do not know what is wrong with me: everybody loves this eyeshadow and it looks hideous on me! To start with, the color payoff is terrible, it is barely noticeable (I am NW 15) so I use a paintpot as a base to make it show up a little more. On my lids is a light golden shadow that makes me look sick if that makes sense. It is not brown and certainly is not taupe at all. I hate this color, my …Read more

I was looking for an alternative to my MAC blushes. The packaging is cute and comes with a mirror included but I am not a fan of the cardboard material. I prefer sturdier cases that last longer. I have this blush in "lace" and the color might look scary in the pan but if you use it light handed it will give you a nice pink flush, even on pale skin. (I am NW 15 - 20) what I dislike about …Read more

This is my go-to blush. It works beautifully with different looks and I think it flatters most skin tones. I am fair and it looks scary in the pan but once applied it is a gorgeous flush of pink on my cheeks. It should be usted with a very light hand because it is really pigmented and if you are not carefull might end up looking like a clown. The color is very buildable and has a slightly …Read more

The formula is just ok (remember it is not waterproof) and it gives a decent amount of volume but this do not hold the curl at all. I will not repurchase. I will stick to Mybelline Colossal waterproof: better wand and better performance for a fraction of the price.

I have been using this mascara for the last 5 years, I have tested other high-end and drugstore mascaras and always come back to the Colossal. With just one coat it gives volume, lenght and holds the curl. I haven't test it in the pool or the beach because I do not wear makeup to those places, but I can say is tears proof. In humidity conditions it smudges a bit under the lower lashline but …Read more

I am in love with this eyeshadow! I bought 2 just in case Maybelline discontinues it :P Is the perfect taupe color: not too dark or too brown but still has a great pigmentation and shows up on the lids. The finish is shiny without being glittery or tacky. It looks insane as a lid color when doing a smokey eye. It is a really hard to find shade, I had been looking for something like this on the …Read more
