I recently received these fabulous Maybelline products in the mail to review.  Who doesn’t love getting packages delivered?  Especially when it’s makeup!  I wear makeup daily, well as long as I’m leaving the house.  Getting new products to try is very exciting for me.  I have always had a Maybelline item in my makeup bag so this was fun to review.

Maybelline brightening concealer stick

DREAM BRIGHTENING CREAMY CONCEALER

It might sound crazy, but I just started using concealer a few months ago.  Perfect timing when I received this one, as I’m running low on my current stick.  Okay, I love this concealer it really is dreamy.  So smooth and soft to apply with excellent coverage.  Plus, the formula has light reflecting pearls which add that bright dewy effect.  You simply twist the bottom to get more concealer goodness.  I am currently using the “light” shade and it’s perfect for my skin tone.  Best part it’s under $15.

Maybelline dream cushion foundation in light

DREAM CUSHION LIQUID FOUNDATION ON-THE-GO

This dream cushion changed my mind on liquid foundation.  I don’t normally wear foundation, that alone the liquid kind.  I was pleasantly surprised that I actually liked this!!  I love the sponge idea and the soft applicator.  It goes on extremely smooth and light weight.  Normally I find foundation heavy and thick.  This was not the case here, it was like I wasn’t wearing any at all.  The classic ivory shade worked well and evened out my skin tone.  I honestly will use this in my makeup routine when I’m heading out for the night or for a photo shoot.

Maybelline 24K nudes eyeshadow palette

24K NUDES EYESHADOW PALETTE

I love eyeshadow!  It’s fun playing with different colors and ways of applying it.  This particular palette focuses more on golds and nudes.  Basically, this can work for anyone.  Each section of the palette colors works together. One color for the eyelid, crease and one to highlight.  Being the picky person that I am, I found these shadows weren’t pigmented enough.  I needed several coats to get the desired shade.  What I did enjoy was the longevity of the shadows.  They did last the day without too much fading.  The sponge applicator I did not use as I have my own set of brushes.

THE COLOSSAL BIG SHOT MASCARA

Mascara is crucial in my life lol.  I rarely leave the house without it and consider myself a big mascara critic.  I want volume and length without the clumps, as do most people right?!  When I opened the Colossal, the thick brush was a concern along with clumping I needed to keep wiping off.  I prefer a small thinner brush.  This mascara definitely gave me the volume it promised, but not as much length.  I will keep as a backup because I do think it’s great for those looking for fuller lashes and a big brush!

Maybelline blush and highlighter palette

FACESTUDIO MASTER BLUSH COLOR AND HIGHLIGHTER KIT

I really enjoyed the options in this kit.  Most times I like to blend colors, so this was perfect.  This blush was well pigmented and went on easily.  The included highlighter was excellent and gave my cheeks that added shimmer.  This is definitely a keeper and one I would purchase!
