I was excited to try the Maybelline Total Temptation Eyeshadow + Highlight Palettethe beautiful shimmer shadows. The first time I used the palette, I had a difficult time getting a good color payoff. I used the MAC Paint Pot as an eyeshadow base and the payoff wasn’t what I expected. The second time I used the palette, I decided to use it as suggested on the back of the palette. I like it much better that way as I️ was able to create a soft look that I actually liked. What did have a good payoff was the highlight in the palette. I only tried the gold highlight and it was super pigmented. If you are looking for a bold eyeshadow palette, then this isn’t for you. If you are a beginner in makeup or just like a soft everyday look, then this is the perfect eyeshadow palette for you.
I was excited to try out the new Maybelline Total Temptation Brow Definer. The triangular shape had a smaller shape than my ABH brow pencil, which I prefer and I liked how small, soft and fluffy the spoolie is. It felt good against my brows. I used the brow definer right after I moisturized my skin and I noticed I had a bit of trouble being able to define the end of my brows. The product itself felt a little waxy than I’m use to using. The next time I tried the brow definer, I decided to wipe off any product on my brows to see if that would help with the ease of using the product. I was able to control it better and I had more success with creating the tail of my brows. Not perfectly but better than my initial use of it. It definitely doesn’t replace my favorite brow pencil but I think it is a great drugstore brow definer. I can’t say that I have had luck with any brow definer from the drugstore in the past. If you’re going for the natural undefined look, then this is the perfect product. Maybelline Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil
The Maybelline Total Temptation Mascaraolute FAVORITE from the collection. I have really short and curly lashes and this mascara instantly added volume and length. And the best part, is that I didn’t have to use several coats to get the volume and intensity that I like in a mascara. Because of the length of my natural lashes, I can appreciate being able to find an affordable drugstore mascara that ACTUALLY WORKS. The product description says that it “builds lashes for full and soft volume,” and I would say the description is very accurate. And knowing that it is infused with coconut extract not only makes me feel the product is safe to use on my lashes but also the added bonus of knowing it can help my lashes grow and strengthen because of it. I also love how the packaging feels soft to the touch. I have definitely made room for this mascara in my makeup collection! Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara
For drug store brand, NYX pencil liners can easily compare with a MAC pencil liner. They offer a variety of color options and for the price, you honestly can't beat that. I would definitely recommend this brand to others because it is something I personally use and have fallen in love with.
I have this in both "It's just like honey," which is a light pink glitter lipgloss and in "Rainbow Interlude," which is sheer glitter lipgloss. Rainbow interlude is more my everyday lipgloss cause it looms great over any lip combination. Hoping Rainbow Interlude comes back as a permanent gloss.
I absolutely love using Aquaphor Lip Repair. My lips can get very dry very easily so I love to use it, not only in my everyday routine but also at night as a lip treatment. When I leave it on overnight, my lips feel baby soft and hydrated in the morning. This will forever remain in my beauty routine!
I was very disappointed with this product. I received these items for my honest review. I got them in the colors "Keep up the Flame" and "Constant Toast." I was very excited to try this product out, as it was a two-in-one product, with one end was the color and the other end was a conditioning lip balm. I followed the instructions, which is to apply the color first and then top it off with the lip balm to keep your lips moisturized and hydrated. The color was very patchy and the lip balm felt worst on top. I then tried it over lipstick and the results were worst. Unfortunately, I can live without the Maybelline Super Stay 24 Color.
This is my favorite drugstore brand eyeshadow palette. The size of it makes it easy to travel with and I can create simple nude looks with this palette. it took me a while to find the matte version of this palette, as it was always sold out at Target. The day I finally found this palette in store, I was super excited. I will probably continue to repurchase this palette. I hope it never discontinues.
Because I do my workouts after work, I like taking these multivitamins in the afternoon so that I can have energy by the time I hit the gym around 7pm. I always notice a difference when I take these multivitamins. I hate the way it smells but thankfully it doesn't leave an after taste.
