Maybelline Drugstore Haul
My local CVS was having a buy one, get one 50% off sale on all Maybelline products so I picked up a few things I had been meaning to try. I was actually really pleased with all of them! I’d recommend any of them. Here’s what I thought in more detail:
Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Bad to the Bronze
Wow, these Color Tattoo shadows are great! I used this both with and without an eye primer and it lasted amazingly both times. This bronze color is actually pretty natural looking with one layer and can be built up to a very shimmery and opaque color with a few more. If you want to add some shadows on top, though, beware because it can be very hard to blend. I usually like to use it alone.
Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer
I was looking for a good, lightweight undereye concealer and this works pretty well. I chose the shade “Neutralizer” which is just supposed to combat any darkness. Sometimes it does fade away by the end of the day but you need to make sure to lock it in with powder. This concealer does not settle into lines at all. It’s supposed to also be a “treatment” but I haven’t really notice any difference.
Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Brown
I loved the consistency of the black gel eyeliner I got from Ipsy recently, but black can sometimes be too dark for my fair complexion and blonde hair (unless I’m wearing black). This eyeliner is great because it comes with its own brush and goes on very smoothly. For the most part, it lasts all day, unless you put it near a crease. Usually, if I wing it out, the wing will be the first part that fades away.
ColorSensational Color Whisper Lipcolor in Cherry on Top
I had heard good things about the Color Whisper collection and it’s been compared to Revlon’s Lip Butters, which I love. These are actually a lot more lightweight than the Lip Butters and have a more glossy texture. When they dry up, they do leave behind a bit of a stain, though it doesn’t last long. Cherry on Top is a super bright reddish-pink that will be perfect once the spring and summer roll in.
