Brand Spotlight – Maybelline Beauty Products

 

Hey Guys! What’s going on? The brand spotlight¬†discovery I tried for the past one year and I repurchase them again. I’ll be sharing with you the brand spotlight this month from¬†the¬†drugstore makeup.

I picked¬†these two beauty products in this particular for today’s post.¬†I’ve listed it down below. So, let’s jump right in.

Let’s start with my face favorite. How can I not mention Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind Dark Spot¬†Concealer + Treatment? As you can see I repurchased two more bottles from this brand since I went through them quite fast.

I’ve used it a lot. Not only do I use it under my eyes but I like to apply it on areas I need more coverage. For instance I will dab it around my nose, under my eye and over any blemishes I may have that day. It did a good job on blurring and covering. One tip I like to share is that you can use it as a base on your eyes and it works as an eye primer.

I use the light pale color under my eyes and dark spots. I applied using the applicator sponge¬†to bring out the products and with my blender I even it out. Goes on nice and smooth and it leaves a nice texture & not cakey. It¬†gives a nice and flawless finish look that I really like. It’s a concealer that I’ve been reaching out again lately.

Here’s the color swatch and the consistency. It’s not too runny or thick. It’s perfect consistency and a right¬†shade for my skin tone. It lasts about 8 hours¬†and I’m quite impressed to say the least.¬†This is¬†a good concealer that can literally cover everything.¬†¬†If you’re looking for really high coverage go for this, it’s a decent drugstore price and it blends out like a dream and is fabulously flawless.¬†This is a concealer that I’ll always keep repurchasing, it really is good.

Now let’s more on to eyeshadow.

I’ve mentioned this Maybelline¬†Color Tattoo¬†24hr Cream¬†Eyeshadow in my previous post a long while ago and since I liked it so much, I want to talk more about it.¬†Maybelline Color Tattoo pots are one of the best performing cream¬†eyeshadow I‚Äôve ever tried from the drugstore and here’s why.

My latest conquer is this Audacious Asphalt, which is a dark silver with metallic finish. It’s one of the permanent Maybelline Color Tattoo range. Such a pretty shade!

As for the packaging, each shade comes in a thick and heavy glass pot similar to MAC’s Paintpots, with a black screw cap.

I really like the formula and wear them alone when I’m in a rush. It made an instant everyday wearable smokey eye. I like that it’s easy to blend with fingers and so less effort required when you’re in a hurry. Or alternatively, you can use a synthetic brush to do the job. The pigmentation is insane and intense.¬† The formula is so good, that even worn alone, without a base or a powder eye shadow on top, it won‚Äôt budge, fade or smudge.

You can use them as an eye primer, to intensify your powder eye shadows or loose pigments, as a waterproof eyeliner, as an intensely pigmented eye shadow.  The Color Tattoos are buildable, so they can take you from a fresh, colorful to intense looks your heart desire.

Just look how pretty the color swatch is! This is done on a single swipe on bare hands. Color payoff varies from good to great over these four shades, some are more opaque than others. I’ll be going back to grab the shade¬†Tough as Taupe¬†for¬†my collection.

If you like a well maintain, multitasking eyeshadow then look no further. You’re going to like this one. I¬†wouldn’t blame you if you ran out right now to pick up one… or two… or four.

Conclusion, Maybelline is a staple drugstore makeup brand that offers an amazing varieties of makeup products from lipsticks to eyeshadows, concealers, primers, eyeliners, blushes and foundation etc to find. Just like any other brands, there surely are products that performs much better than the other but it’s a brand that you mustn’t¬†overlook when it comes to budget spend. Drugstore brands are stepping up to their game in the cosmetics world where I’ve seen some perform better than the high end brands in quality and prices.

This concludes this month’s brand spotlight and hope you’ve enjoyed reading and find this post helpful.

Have any of you tried Maybelline Color Tattoo creme eyeshadows? If so, what did you think.

Thank you for taking the time to read! Hope to see you again on the next one. Bye!

Wednesday Drugstore Epic Beauty Snag|Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow

color tattoo cream shadow

A worthy impulse buy for those who don’t wish to pay an arm and a leg for MAC’s Paint Pots. I grab this¬†Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow in Fierce & Tangy (net wt: 0.14 oz) from the local drugstore. ¬†Regular price at Uniprix drugstore is $8.99 but I got this one for $2.99 on special. Special products promo varies from store to stores.

It glides, blends, stays and leaves as you wish to manipulate it. No chalkiness, no unpleasant smells. Delicious looking shade that screams for fall season. I’ve other shades from this line but this shade just calling to me. So, I caved in (giggling!).

Here are some of the positive note I noticed. They don’t look greasy on my eyelids, they’re easy to apply and they stay put all day. As for the 24 hours claims by the Eyestudio, I didn’t go wearing it for 24 hours to confirm that but 9 hours is good enough for me.

It goes on quite nicely and can blend with other eyeshadows nicely. This product doesn’t run out very fast so you do get your moneys worth out of it. Very high pigmented goes on smoothly.

Although I find that it’s a little thick, it’s not heavy. They are great by themselves and great layered too.

You can use your fingers to apply it on your lids or as an eye base. I noticed using fingers to pat works best when I work on it.¬†It is bright, there’s no denying it, and the brightness is welcomed especially for fall season – more of a sunset silhouette in my opinion.

Look at this pumpkin or tangerine color swatch of Fierce & Tangy. Don’t you love this shade for fall? Don’t get me wrong, I love other shades too but this one is phenomenal to wear on lids this time of the year. Available in 10 vibrant shades at Ulta, Maybelline, Drugstores, Walmart etc.

I’m very tempted to show this EOTD to all of you¬†for¬†I know you’re going to like¬†it! Oh well! Here it is:

First, I applied the cream shadow on the¬†eyelid to the crease using my finger to pat them on. ¬†Then I used my favorite Baked and Beautiful Eyeshadow by Bh Cosmetics. I like wearing¬†the Brown on the crease and Dark Brown on the outer corner and I¬†applied a Black liquid eyeliner by Elf on the lashline. You can stop here or put on your mascara and fake lashes and you’re good to go.

I didn’t use an eye base because this cream shadow is creamy and any eyeshadows would stick on and blend well. An easy to wear eye makeup look¬†which leaves you sometime extra time to¬†have¬†a cup of hot moka.

final EOTD

Don’t forget to remover¬†your eyeshadows before going to bed. That’s one of the makeup rules. So, the bonus of this cream shadow is that¬†they come off really easily with whatever you use as makeup remover. No dragging or harsh rubbing necessary.

Below is another EOTD look for a beautiful fall morning you may like to try.

I recommend you to get on the Love Boat for this one. I love ’em for the quality and good value for money. And so affordable, too!! My total star product – I love love love it and will repurchase as long as Maybelline has this on the shelves.
