When I was writing my 2014 favorites post, I realized that I included more Maybelline products than any other brand, so today I thought I’d do my makeup using only their products!
I started by using the Corrector stick in Yellow under my eyes. I’ve had this product for way too long…I remember using it a handful of times, then putting it in a drawer and forgetting about it. I think I did it right this time by using it underneath my foundation, the Instant Age Rewind Radiant Firming foundation. I use this foundation every once in a while, and it’s okay, but it doesn’t blow me away. It tends to look a little cakey around my chin and nose. To conceal redness, I used my holy grail Fit Me Concealer in Fair, and to brighten under my eyes and under my brows, I used the Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer.
When I got to my brows, I had a little trouble. The only brow product I have from Maybelline is the Brow Drama, and I planned on using only that, but when I ran it through my brows, it just didn’t add any color. I even tried using an angled brush dipped in the product to add some shape…bad idea. So, I cheated and filled them in using my Anastasia Brow Wiz. I just had to. It caused a bit of a mess, but I think they ended up okay. On my lids, I used my Bad to the Bronze Color Tattoo. I actually haven’t used this in quite a while, and it’s actually much more subtle than I remember. For eyeliner, I used the Eye Studio gel liner in Blackest Black. This was very time consuming and not the easiest to apply. It’s quite dry and I really had to build up the color so it didn’t look patchy. It also bled onto the skin in my inner corners and a bit under my lash line when I used it to tightline. So, not my favorite product from Maybelline. My mascara of choice was my trusty The Rocket waterproof.
For blush, I used the Master Glaze by Facestudio blush in Just-Pinched Pink. I’ve talked about my love for Make a Mauve from the same line, and while I do like this pinky one, Make a Mauve is still my favorite by a landslide. On my lips I’m wearing one of the new Creamy Matte lipsticks in Touch of Spice. I mentioned in my post yesterday that I’ve been very impressed with this lipstick. It’s very pigmented, very easy to apply, it’s smooth, it’s creamy. It’s everything. Seriously. I’m even impressed by the way it wears off throughout the day.
That’s everything! What are your favorite Maybelline products?
