Metallics are all the rage and why shouldn’t they be? Metallic colors are just plain cool looking! And fall seems to be the best season for them. MAYBELLINE just came out with Color Sensational Matte Metallic Lipsticks ($7.49 @ maybelline.com, ulta.com) and while I’m not much of a blue lipstick wearer, theirs makes me want to rock it!

As much as I like the shades in this collection, they are just your basic lipsticks that don’t last a super long time like liquid lipsticks, however, they are comfortable to wear and don’t require the commitment. So there is a trade-off. Which do you prefer?

One question regarding the numbers of these shades and all Maybelline lipstick shades – does the brand go in some kind of order and started at 1 and they are at almost 1,000 different shades of lipstick since their creation? Let me know if you have the answer!

Is this the Hottest Product in Metallic Makeup?

Maybelline-Master-Precise-Ink-Metallic-Liquid-Eyeliners
MAYBELLINE
just came out with the Metallics Collection and today I’m looking at the 7 shades of Master Precise Ink Metallic Liquid Eyeliners ($8.99 @ maybelline.com, ulta.com, target.com).

Fall is officially upon us so feel free to intensify your look or just add a bold shade. These waterproof liquid liners have a super pointy tip that’s not a bristled brush (yeah) so you will get a clear-cut line of color.

Inside each tube is a metal weight so you can mix the color inside if it’s been sitting for a few.

While some of the shades were bolder than the others, these for sure have a place on my face! And after drawing a line, don’t wait too long if you need to do some cleaning up because once it dries down, it won’t move. What I like about using a liner for this metallic trend is that it adds just a dash of flavor to your look without overdoing it. 

As far as wear-time, these are worth the price tag and then some. The colors are rich, even the light ones, and I got an average of 9 hours with the three different shades I tried. That’s a pretty good track record. I do have one question though, why no blue??

Is this the Best Drugstore Liquid Lipstick?

Maybelline-SuperStay-Matte-Ink-main
I’m in lippie heaven right now. Seriously! There have been a bunch of new releases to hit my desk in the past week plus some I bought that just came out so if you love lipsticks as much as I do, be sure to check back.

First up, MAYBELLINE SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick ($9.49 @ maybelline.com, walgreens.com, target.com) What It Is: SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick gives you a flawless matte finish in a range of super saturated shades.

My take: Wow, just wow. I think I may have found my favorite drugstore liquid lipstick! The colors are simply fab (favorites right now have to be the dark pink of Lover and the bright orange/red of Heroine) and I really like the vanilla-cupcake-scented formula. Here’s the breakdown - These dry down matte but not dessert dry. They have some tact to them but the color is totally non-transferable. I just got the new NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments the other day and immediately tried one and that one has a slight tact to them but these seem to have more, which I kind of like. The super dessert dry ones have become like nails down a chalkboard for me and I just can’t wear them anymore.

Is this the Strobing Product of the Summer?

Maybelline-Master-Strobing-Liquid-Illuminating-Highlighter-main

Highlighters are the hottest products in makeup these days, which is funny since they've been around forever. Everyone just wants that glow so I can see why but you've seen one highlighter, you've seen them all, right? That's what I thought. Enter MAYBELLINE FaceStudio Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighter ($9.99 @ ulta.com). It’s available in three shades: Light/Iridescent, Medium/Gold, Dark/Nude Glow, and these really caught me off guard.

I’m used to using a powder highlighter these days so it took me a beat to get used to using these that are creams. But wow, so worth it! I’ve pushed the powders aside and these three have taken center stage! I love the different options when it comes to the colors and These. Stay. Put! I don’t think they are waterproof but they are close enough.

A dab and blend on the tops of my cheeks, a dab and blend in my cupids bow, really anywhere and wow, do these perk up my parts, and probably the only ones you need to get you through summer ... seriously.

Is This Your Answer to a Purse-Friendly Powder Foundation?

A full review of the Maybelline Powder Foundation. Is this game-changing powder worth it? Click here to find out.

A full review of the Maybelline Powder Foundation. Is this game-changing powder worth it? Click here to find out.

However did I miss this one when it came out late last year? I guess with a market place based on what’s new and now, it got lost in the shuffle, but wow, I’m sure glad I tried it. So what is it? It’s MAYBELLINE Super Stay Better Skin Skin-Transforming Powder ($10.99/9g @ ulta.com, target.com) and it’s rocking my world right now.

Maybelline Powder Foundation

What it is - a skin-transforming powder that delivers lasting coverage. It’s oil-free and contains salicylic acid, which helps to achieve better looking skin in just three weeks. Eliminates shine and unevenness, while delivering a natural matter finish.

My take - just wow. The finish on this one is medium coverage and what’s unique about this one is that is contains salicylic acid, which is a well-known anti-aging ingredient, and helps skin actually look better over time (they claim about 3 weeks). When was the last powder foundation able to do that?

Though I’ve only been using it daily for the past two weeks so while it makes my skin look gorgeous and not really “done,” I have the aforementioned to look forward to.  

I would put this up against some of my favorite luxury powder foundations like this pricier one that give me flawless coverage and you just can’t beat the price!

5 Favorite Makeup Products for Highlighting

Strobing? Highlighting? Bronzing? No matter which you choose to do, they’re all hot now. Do you have a favorite? I find that highlighting/strobing 2 features max in any look is more than enough. I mean, you want to look natural, just better, and not completely fake.

Here are 5 that I’ve been using the past few weeks. Do you see a favorite?

Top-5-Highlighting-and-Contouring-Makeup-Products

1. LUNE+ASTER Moonrise Glow & Contour Bronzing Palette - $46 @ bluemercury.com – this is a really serious highlighting duo. One side is the glowing bronzer and the other is the candlelight-effect highlighter. I’m really only into matte bronzers so I’ve been using both along tops of my cheek bones.

2. CHELLA Highlighter Pencil in Ivory Lace $18 @ chella.com, dermstore.com – this highlighter has quite a cult following and I see why! It works under the eyebrow, along the cupids bow, inner corners of the eyes and more. No shimmer or glow here, which is nice when I’m not in the mood for it. There’s just something about this super light matte pink shade they call Ivory Lace that works with almost every skin tone.  

3. MAYBELLINE NEW YORK Face Studio Master Strobing Stick in Medium Nude Glow - $7.99 @ target.com – this has become my go-to for highlighting my cheekbones and inner corner of my eyes. This one seems to blend perfectly into my skin tone not really adding any color, just glow!

4. MAYBELLINE NEW YORK Face Studio Master Contour V-Shape Duo Stick in Medium - $7.99 @ target.com – why did it take so long for someone to come up with a duo-colored stick like this? Use the light side for highlighting/strobing and the darker side to define cheeks, contour the nose, and jawline.

5. PIXI BY PETRA Beauty Blush Duo + Kabuki in Peach Honey - $18 @ pixibeauty.comtarget.com – I’m not a fan of any shimmer or any other effects in my blush (I’m a matte girl on that front too) so I’ve been using this like the Lune+Aster one, upper cheeks and under the brow bone.

Is This Your Holy Grail Liner?

Could this be your holy grail liner? Check out this review of the MAYBELLINE Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner. Could this be your holy grail liner? Check out this review of the MAYBELLINE Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner.

This MAYBELLINE Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner in Black ($7.99 @ ulta.com, drugstore.com) seems to be residing between a liquid liner and a pencil liner. It’s part of their fall collection and I don’t think this color could be any blacker!

Holy Grail Liner

This is probably the closest to an overall Sharpie-look of an eyeliner I’ve ever come across – the liner tip and pen-like case and even the color on the skin. And what I like about this most is that I can choose from a thin or thick line across the lid.

And this didn’t bleed at all, which is a very important trait to me, and lasted an average of 8 hours before starting to wear off.

Some may find this one a tad difficult to wield as the tip is rounded instead of pointed, which I mentioned above. This works fine for me but I found that I had to draw a medium to thick line by default because of the shape, so if you’re a novice, you may not want to start with this one.

Could this be your holy grail liner? Check out this review of the MAYBELLINE Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner.

5 Drugstore Favorites

5-Drugstore-Favorites
1.
MUA MAKEUP ACADEMY Double Ended Foundation & Concealer Brush ($14 @ cvs.com) – Every once in a while a brush comes along that just becomes a staple in your collection, and that’s this one. Both sides of this brush can be used to apply both creams and liquids and the size of each head, especially the foundation size, is just perfect! This brand is on a roll for me lately.

2. CERAVE Moisturizing Cream with Pump ($17.99/16oz @ walgreens.com) – you ever just want a super basic cream with no strong perfume or scent? Yup, this one is it and it contains ceramides and hyaluronic acid. And how convenient is this pump? Love it.

3. PANTENE Air Spray Alcohol Free Hairspray ($5.49/7oz @ walgreens.com) – this one is starting to rival this one as one of my favorites. I mean, it is for the summer, for sure though. It acts sort of the same in that it gives great hold yet it’s brushable. And this one is alcohol-free.

4. COVERGIRL Lash Blast Plumpify Mascara ($11.99 @ target.com) – I’m tough on mascara and pass on probably 80% of the ones I try. This one, however, gets some high marks from me as it really does plump-ify each lash.

5. MAYBELLINE Super Stay 24 Lip Color in Very Cranberry ($10.49 @ maybelline.com, target.com) – remember in this post how I mentioned how all colors are not created equal, even when they are in the same collection? Yup, that is the case here. I can’t stop wearing this shade of rosy rose. Great for a summer day!
