Best of Maybelline:
- Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation–$7.99
This is the foundation that I have currently been using every single day. I started using this foundation last fall and have never strayed from it since. Because of this blog and wanting to try new foundations to recommend, I have just recently started to try other foundations but the Maybelline Matte and Poreless has still remained my top favorite. If I have a special event or if I just want my skin to look amazing, I can always rely on this foundation, it never fails me! The shade range is average but the shades themselves are really wearable and neutral, which is perfect for me with my olive skin tone.
How I recommend wearing this foundation: I have normal to oily skin, more on the oily side during the summer, so how I like to do my foundation is to mix this matte foundation with a glowy and luminous primer. I mix the Becca Backlight Primer which is a luminous primer with this foundation. When I do this routine, my skin looks luminous because of the Becca primer but does not get oily and gross because the Matte and Poreless Foundation keeps my oils at bay!
My shade: 128–Warm Nude
2. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer–$9.99
This is one of the two concealers that I use exclusively. I am not a huge concealer-wearer but this is definitely the one I reach for when I do wear concealer! It is light and creamy while also delivering full-coverage under the eyes! The shade range is great, you are sure to be able to find a shade that matches you, if you are in the market for a concealer!
According to the Maybelline website, “This super-concentrated treatment concealer features a micro-corrector applicator to help instantly erase dark circles and fine lines.”
3. Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser–$6.99
This foundation primer is a great drugstore dupe for the Benefit POREfessional foundation primer! This primer does exactly what the POREfessional does, which is fill in your pores. I found that this pore-filling primer not only fills in my pores but also also smoothes the skin and creates the perfect canvas for makeup and foundation application!
According to the Maybelline website, “Baby Skin® Instant Pore Eraser. This makeup primer leaves skin with a baby smooth and matte finish. Moisturizes all day. This lightweight and breathable pore-blurring makeup primer leaves skin with a smooth matte finish.”
4. Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter–$9.99
This highlighter from Maybelline is absolutely incredible. It is creamy and blendable while providing a blinding highlight. This highlighter is similar to the Becca highlighters but will cost you a fraction of the price. You definitely have to have a slight tan or a light-medium to medium skin tone to pull this highlighter off but if you fit this description, this highlight is for you. This highlighter is metallic which means that it will seamlessly melt into the skin and provide a stunning glow.
According to the Maybelline website, “meet the secret to brilliant and luminous skin. This highlighter powder drenches skin in a melted metallic finish. Maybelline’s pearl pigments leave a reflective finish for a brilliant glowing skin.”
5. Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick–$7.99
These are one of my very favorite liquid lipsticks, and most definitely my most favorite liquid lipstick from the drugstore! These liquid lipsticks are definitely not totally matte, I would say that they are more of a satin finish, which I personally prefer! These liquid lipsticks are so moisturizing and nourishing and look amazing on the lips. They do not accentuate fine lines and cracks in your lips, they smooth over the lips so perfectly and flawlessly! I totally recommend these lippies to anyone and everyone!
According to the Maybelline website, “Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid. Rich, intense lip color glides on smooth to a matte finish. Drench your lips in sensuous, vivid color. Pure pigments collide with a creamy liquid base for a velvety-soft, cushiony feel. The result? A high-impact lip that stands out!”
6. Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss–$7.99
This is the absolute best lipstick from the drugstore, and besides the Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss, this formula is my absolute favorite! They are so creamy and pigmented! Yet, they are not that sticky lip gloss formula that I know everyone hates! These lip glosses are so glossy, which seems to be stating the obvious but its true! They are so creamy and glossy and just well, the best! I totally recommend these to anyone!
According to the Maybelline website, “Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer. High-impact lip gloss with an ultra-shiny finish. Maybelline’s high-impact gloss goes vivid! Strong lacquered shine and opaque color melt onto the lips for your most impactful lip look.”
