Review: Some New Items From Maybelline...#Maybelline #makeup

(product photos courtesy of www.maybelline.com)

Maybelline recently sent me a few of their new items to try out and review.  I LOVE Maybelline and have for many, many years (since I was around 12) and use this brand more than most other brands and definitely more than any other mass market brand. It is of very high quality, has great pigmentation and is just awesome. They keep up with the trends more than any other brand too. 

0.51oz./14.6g $9.99
Dream Cushion Liquid Foundation is a reinvention of liquid foundation. It is foundation that sits in a sponge and you use a special applicator to apply the foundation to get as little or as much foundation as you want. This way you can have sheer to medium, or heavier coverage. You get a fresh faced finish with complete coverage. You can tap as much, or as little as you want onto the applicator to get the coverage you want. It comes in 8 shades for most skin tones. I wear Porcelain 10.

I adore this foundation. It goes on smoothly, blends like a dream and stays on all day long. Surprisingly the color is great for my skin tone. It has a little bit of luminosity to the foundation, so your skin will have a little bit of glow to it. But not enough to make you look like a Christmas Tree light. It's really a very nice foundation, give it a go. You will love it!


0.11oz./3g $7.99


This is my favorite brightening concealer. It is just light enough to cover the slightest dark circles I have under my eyes and it brightens up the under eye area I have to make it pop. comes in 6 shades. I use Fair. It delivers medium to full coverage for a luminous finish. Maybelline’s cream-glide formula with light-reflecting pearls achieves brilliant bright-eyed perfection! To apply: Step 1. Dot concealer on your dark circles under the eyes. Step 2. Pat with a finger or tool to blend. It really does lighten up the under eye area, you will be shocked and amazed at how nice it looks.


0.67fl.oz./20mL $9.99
This adds radiance and dimension to the face for the ultimate glow.
Discover the illuminating strobe effect. Now, in a micro-pearl liquid formula for all-over highlighting! Strobe to add glow and to create the look of skin that appears radiant as if lit from within.
Four ways to glow: wear alone, mix with primer, mix with foundation, or spotlight high points of the face (Step 1. Apply to desired areas of the face. Step 2. Blend with fingertips). It comes in three shades. Iridescent Pink, Medium Nude Glow and Deep Gold. I tried Deep Gold. Anyone can wear all three shades. That is the beauty of the Strobing Sticks and Illuminagting Highlighters. The Gold was pretty and accentuated my cheeks so that they looked as if they were brushed with gold dust. 



.33fl.oz./9.7mL $8.49
Maybelline has the BEST mascaras on the market. I love to try out all of their new mascaras as soon as they come out. This one give you the best lashes bar none. The best volume from root-to-tip.  You get fully loaded volume in one coat. Unleash girl boss lashes with Colossal Big Shot, for fully loaded volume in one coat. 8 out of 10 saw root to tip volume instantly. The Big Shot brush features unique, wavy bristles that cradle lashes, while the collagen formula delivers bold volume. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for contact lens wearers.
To Use:
Step 1. Sweep the Big Shot brush from root to tip for dramatic volume.
Step 2. Repeat to build even bigger volume.
Step 3. Do not let mascara dry in between coats.
Step 4. Easily remove mascara with Maybelline Expert Eyes® 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.


0.01oz./280mg $6.49

Color coordinating, waterproof and smearproof shades of lip liner help to keep lipstick in place and help to add definition so that lipstick has a nice place to stay on the lips in case of areas that need more defining (like I have). Their new shades are great and coordinate with the new shades of matte COLORsensational Lipstick. Totally Toffee, the liner I tried, goes with many of the lipstick shades. It's a very nice neutral, My Lips But Better shade.


.15oz./4.2g $7.49
 
Maybelline, along with the new lip liners, put out a line of nude lipsticks that are absolutely gorgeous. I tried Hot Sand. Hot Sand is the lightest of the bunch. It is a golden light nude.  I will show you a photo of me wearing it below.There are so many beautiful colors that they came out with I wish I could try them all. There are liners to go with all of the colors. I think in this collection there must be about 14 shades in all, at least.
 

0.26fl.oz./7.7mL $7.99


This lip color is rich and intense. It glides on smooth to a matte finish. Drench your lips in sensuous, vivid color. Pure pigments collide with a creamy liquid base for a velvety-soft, cushiony feel. It has 2x the amount of normal pigment to give you the best color around. The result? A high-impact lip that stands out! Here is the best way to apply for the best results: Step 1. Apply the liquid lip with the applicator wand in the center of your upper lip and follow along the contours of your mouth. Step 2. Glide the liquid lip applicator across the entire bottom lip.

I tried Corrupt Cranberry, a beautiful deep crimson shade that is gorgeous on the lips. I find this comforting on the lips and not too drying like some matte lip colors can be. It comes in 9 shades, all of which are extremely pigment rich. Here is a photo of me in Corrupt Cranberry:
