There are some products that I constantly heard about and I wanted to see if they really worked. I finally picked up few items, tried and reviewed.
Primer: BABY SKIN INSTANT PORE ERASER by Maybelline – $6.99
This primer is supposed to leave your skin with a smooth matte finish. However, I thought it was way too oily and I had only tried a little bit but felt it was way too much. I also felt that it didn’t cover any pores (not that I have a lot). Maybe I just ended up with the bad batch.
Foundation: FIT ME DEWY & SMOOTH by Maybelline – $7.99
It’s a dewy foundation with SPF 18 that hydrates and smoothes skin texture. I felt that the foundation did exactly as the description mentioned. It really gave a nice, smooth and dewy look and I really liked how it sat on my skin. Didn’t feel too heavy, yet gave me a really good coverage. I used Golden Beige and it matched my skin so perfectly and had the right amount of yellow in it. I also bought Revlon ColorStay but it didn’t look good on my skin and felt it was bit pink so I ended up returning it.
Blush was by Prescriptives and highlighter was Champagne Pop by Jaclyn Hill.
Base by MAC
Glitter by Wet n wild – one of the worst products I have ever purchased and used. Though it was only a $1, I didn’t think it was worth it at all. It was too oily and creased really bad after half an hour only. It was so difficult to blend/apply another eye shadow with it. It was difficult to apply mascara. Once I managed to put it all together, I felt it all melted and gave a crease in the middle of the eye lid. I was very disappointed with this product. I will give this product 0/5 stars.
Mascara – THE FALSIES PUSH UP DRAMA by Maybelline – $9.49
I fell in love with this product. It’s very dramatic and gives volume to the lashes. It’s really dark and just perfect. No need to apply false lashes with this one and it is waterproof. I think this will be my go to product from now on and I highly highly highly recommend it to everyone.
Eyeliner – LINEUR INTENSE BRUSH TIP LIQUID LINER – $8.48
This is a good eyeliner for someone on a budget. I really like the brush as you can get the thinnest lines with it and work your way up. It does come off easily, so staying power isn’t long but all in all a decent product to try.
Lipstick was from MAC and I loved the shade, it matched my outfit perfectly.
All in all, I was happy with some products and wouldn’t mind repurchasing. The ones that I will not recommend are Glitter by WetNWild and Pore eraser by Maybelline.
