I love make up. I love that depending on the products you use and the way you apply it on, it can completely change your look. Usually make up can get kind of pricey, but lately I’ve tried on a few of Maybelline’s newest products that I thought were pretty good:
Colossal Big Shot Express Mascara ($8.49) – I love to keep my make up quite simple, accentuating the eyes. When it comes to mascara, I like to apply mascara that will really brings out my eyes, and make my short Asian lashes look curled, voluminous and bold. I’m pretty impressed with this mascara especially since it was able to capture all my lashes especially my baby ones that I get annoyed with if they don’t stay curled. Also this mascara did not smudge or clump. I can’t tell you how irritated I get when mascara smudges or clumps easy—I’ve thrown away pretty new mascara if the application process is messy.
24k Nudes Palette ($11.99) – A mix of 12 mostly shimmery, some matte neutrals. It comes with a two sided sponge brush, one side bigger and rounder than the other which is nice for being able to use different sides to apply the shadows to the lid vs the brow, etc. I’m a big fan of the lighter shades of shimmery eyeshadows (pearl, pink, gold) for sweeping a layer over the lids or a bit under the brows for highlighting. However, I wasn’t a big fan of the darker colors. They weren’t as pigmented as I would’ve liked.
Master Precise Liquid Ink Pen Eye Liner ($7.99) – I’m usually not as big of a fan of liquid ink pen types of eye liners, but did like how thin the brush was. It allowed me to have more control over drawing the lines. The liquid was pigmented and also lasted a long time.
All of these products are available on the Maybelline website now!
