I’ve started a new segment on my blog called – Brand Talk which is dedicated to what else … brands! I thought this would be a great idea to introduce brands that I love ( some well known and some not). They won’t all necessarily be beauty brands as I’ve started to branch out into some lifestyle but more on that in the next few posts.
This new segment is not a review per se of the brands products, just an introduction of the brand and what they have to offer and most importantly what products from the brand I use because honestly why talk about a brand if #1, I haven’t tried their products and #2, if I don’t like their products.
First up on this new blog segment ( that I’m super stoked about btw ) is Maybelline New York. If you’ve never heard of Maybelline then I don’t know what to tell ya…where have you been hiding? 🙂
Maybelline New York is by far my favourite “true” drugstore product. When I say ” true” drugstore I’m referring to the budget friendly products sold at the drugstore and not the $80 moisturizer also sold at the drugstore.
Maybelline New York is the top selling cosmetics brand and is sold in in over 1oo countries. So basically you can hear ” Maybe She’s Born With It. Maybe It’s Maybelline. ” in over 60 languages!
Fun fact: Maybelline is named after the founders sister Maybel ,who invented mascara! Maybelline Great Lash mascara is the worlds most iconic mascara ( fact) and this pink tube of mascara is sold every 1.7 seconds!
Maybelline also has you covered from eyes, face to lips! I’ve used many Maybelline products but my absolute favourite product, and I’ve talked about this product before, is the “Pumped Up Colossal” Mascara. I always go back to this particular one because it just works for me. I hope they never discontinue it as it’s my go-to for life!
A few Maybelline products that I rely on religiously have to be:
- Super Stay Better Skin concealer + corrector
- Fit Me Concealer
- Baby Lips Lip Balm
- Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen the product picture above. I took this photo after purchasing and using a few new Maybelline products. The new products are:
- FaceStudio Master Conceal
- Master Camo Colour Correcting Kit
- Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
- Master Strobing Kit Illuminating Highlighter
In this non-photoshopped photo above I used the colour correcting kit to conceal my dark circles and then the Master Conceal in medium. I blended them in with a damp beauty blender and they melted into my skin! What surprised me the most actually was how well the Illuminating highlighter worked. It has a creamy texture and on applies effortlessly on my skin and the highlight effect lasted all night ! You notice in the picture the highlight suits my overall look. I didn’t want to go overboard with it but added a bit of highlight to draw light to my face.I achieved this look with only one swipe of the highlighter and it was enough for me. For another occasion I layered the illuminating highlighter on-top of another cream based highlighter and it looked even more gorgeous. The micro -fine pearls in this product definitely come through even when layered. This actually is my first creamy highlighter that I have totally fallen in love with. I usually stick to powder based highlighters but I’ve been converted. I also love that it’s small enough to carry in a teeny tiny clutch in the event that a touch up is needed!
Here are a few MAYBELLINE NEW YORK products that I haven’t tried yet but are next on my list:
