Maybelline Haul!


Hello lovely! I haven't posted on my blog in what feels like too long, I just recently started my second semester at uni and already fell behind a bit so I did let my blog slip down on my priority list. I've still been reading many blogs and discovering some beautiful new ones even though I haven't been posting on my own. But today I am back and am super excited to share a few things I bought at Priceline as they had half price on the entire Maybelline range! (Just quickly I thought I would ask if any of you have any idea how to get rid of that grey tinge in white photos? I've been searching up and can't seem to figure out how to fix it.)

I decided to try the Dewy + Smooth version of this foundation as I have already tried and liked the Matt + Poreless one. I got the shade Classic Ivory which is a perfect match on my current skin tone. I was really looking forward to trying this as my skin has been quite dry recently, so of course I opened it up right after taking these images and used it with today's makeup. I used a damp beauty sponge to apply it then set it with my Maybelline Fit Me powder. So far so good. It hasn't clung onto any dry patches and is very comfortable to wear. I've had it on for less than an hour so I'm not sure how it'll wear throughout the day, but as of now I'm quite liking this foundation.

As I mentioned, I have already tried this foundation and for the most part I liked it. I find that this is something that happens with any foundation or concealer that I try, I will like it and then one day it'll just look odd. Then I'll like it again. So at the moment I am in the 'liking' stage of this foundation. I decided to go one shade darker with this one and purchased the shade Creamy Beige. I have yet to try this particular shade but I'm hoping it's not too dark on me, if so it'll be great in summer anyway. I think the reason why I stopped enjoying this foundation previously is because it's quite light and didn't cover my breakouts that I was getting. But of course I don't really expect it to. Both the Fit Me foundations are light to medium coverage so I enjoy using them for a natural day look. 

This concealer has been very much hyped up within the beauty world. That's why I ended up buying it a while back and to be honest I was disappointed. But I think I had some magical expectation due to how amazing everyone claimed it was. I stopped using it for a while then tried it again, and to my surprise I did end up liking it. So when I saw it was half price I thought I would pick up another one since it's been over a year (I think) since I last tried it. This time I didn't have that major expectation, I think this product is slightly better than the average concealer, it blends nicely and for me that's more important than coverage. I will say that when I first tried this I was completely new with makeup and didn't know the different ways to apply it. Overall, it is a nice concealer hence why I repurchased it.

My last post was actually a full review on this product which you can read here. I saw this and thought I'd grab another one while it was on sale. Though when I got back home I realised that I had a lot more product left than I thought. 

So this is a product I've been thinking about getting for years. I just never picked it up, or I did and then put it back. I really don't know why I always did this. I tried this under my foundation this morning and so far I can't really fault it. Again, I haven't worn it for long so I can only speak for my initial thoughts. There isn't really a scent which is good. The consistency is gel like and glides smoothly onto the skin. I focused this product on and around my nose, chin and forehead, then just spread whatever was left on the rest of my face. The pores on my nose were a bit less noticeable but not completely gone. I'm not amazed but I'm not disappointed yet, so if I don't break out more than I already am I will be pleased with this product hahah. 

I have used their waterproof version of this mascara and although I love it, I don't like removing waterproof mascara. So I thought I would get the non waterproof version and it's pretty similar. It makes my eyelashes look naturally defined. The wand isn't anything special but seems to work wonders for me. This is not a mascara for those who want big dramatic lashes. Because I already have long black lashes, I just want something that'll enhance them without looking unnatural. Everyone's makeup preferences are different but if you want soft, feathery and defined lashes then this is great. Again, it's definitely on the natural looking side but perfect for casual day wear. 


Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed it! Have you tried any of these products?

    1. Thanks Imogen! I'm glad you like it! I haven't heard of anyone who doesn't like it but I think I had super high almost unrealistic expectations at the time hahah. I got a darker shade this time and prefer it. Xxx

  2. I used to love the Pore Eraser primer but then I fell out of love with it. This has reminded me to try it again. The strobe stick and the matte & poreless foundation are ones that I want to try. x Nikita

    1. The Pore Eraser primer made my forehead quite oily, so I've been using it just on my nose now and it's better hahah. I highly recommend the strobe stick! xx

  3. It's a shame when you really want something to be great and it's just not, sounds like that was the case with the concealer. Although it's often hard for products to be worth such big hype.

    I felt the same about the primer, good but a bit average!

    1. That's definitely true, I was a bit younger at the time and had some massive expectations after reading the hype. I do like it now though so I repurchased it. xx

    1. I hated the applicator at first, but I kind of like how easy it is to just swipe. But I can't help thinking about the product just sitting there! xx

    1. Thank you for reading !! After trying everything and wearing them for a while, I've decided that I liked all the products except for the Maybelline Pore Eraser primer. It just made my forehead and chin very oily so I only use it around my nose now. xxx
