The Best Of Maybelline

When I came to prepare for this blog post, I realised that Maybelline is very much a "Marmite" brand for me - I either really love the products that I buy or I hate them, there's no middle ground! Luckily, there are a bunch of Maybelline products in my stash that I do really love - as you can see from the battered packaging of some of them, they really do get a lot of love.

Dream Lumi Touch Concealer

I rarely stray from a usual Rimmel & Collection concealer duo, but when I do it will be this one I'm wearing. It's really great at hiding dark under eye circles, and has a really creamy consistency that won't crease or cake up. It's a highlighting concealer, so I wouldn't recommend using it on blemishes, but it does wonders at highlighting other areas, for example your brow bone.

Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadows
These are the perfect eyeshadows to use if you're in a rush to get ready. They're so creamy and easily blendable that you can just swipe them on and go. They have some really beautiful colours in the range (admittedly not as many as the States get which sucks!), with my favourites being On & On Bronze and Pink Gold.

Colorsensational Lip Elixir
This product really surprised me, as I wasn't too sure I was going to like them. They look a lot like lip gloss when worn, but they are not in the slightest bit sticky, and have quite a balmy texture to them. They also have really good pigmentation to them. I really enjoy wearing them over other lip products to give them a more shiny finish.

Color Drama Lip Pencils
The cheaper but better dupes to the NARS velvet matte lip pencils, I really fell in love with these towards the end of last year, and now have quite a few in my collection. They are so creamy that the glide onto the lips so easily, and the fact that they're pencils makes it so much easier to get a good shape. They are highly pigmented and really long lasting too.

The Rocket Waterproof Mascara
For me, Maybelline are the queen of drugstore mascaras, so I couldn't go through this post without mentioning one. My all time favourite has to be The Rocket as it gives such good volume and gives my lashes a really nice curl that stays put all day. It's so good that it even made it into my Products I'll Forever Repurchase post.

What are your favourite Maybelline products?
