Good evening my make-up loving ladies,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
welcome to my new series – a full face of —. Since I love make-up and often try out new products I decided to start a new series on the blog where I create a full face of make-up from one brand. I think this will be really funny and helpful cause we can have a look at a specific item from a variety of brands how it will actually look on the face.
So with no further ado let´s dive into. Oh one quick thing to add. I did not pick my favorite brand at first, I just got the idea while standing in front of the Maybelline counter and started right away. There are tons of drug store brands so we will be having fun with make-up all Summer long into Fall if not into Winter. Which means a great variety on make-up looks as the colors shift from season to season.
A full face of Maybelline…
Face Studio prime primer pore minimizing // I always love to put on a primer underneath my make-up cause my skin never feels smooth like after, but if you use to much it will start to crumble very soon. At least this one. It created an even surface where I needed one (around my nose) and I think it is a good price point.
Dream Radiant Liquid in 01 Natural Ivory // Trying a new foundation is never easy for me. I usually stick with the ones I have and they work great for me so this category is definitely the hardest for me in terms of longwear and color. The color I choose was perfect for my skin so that was a win and I also though it held up really well without drying my skin out. One of the main ingredients is hyaluronic acid so this definitely helps. It is a nice foundation I would use for at home wear so I do not have to use my expensive ones for such mundane days but you can definitely wear it out and about. It has medium coverage and from what I tried it is not buildable. It will look like too much pretty fast. Other than that the Dream Radiant foundation is totally fine.
Fit me matte + poreless powder in 120 Classic Ivory // This powder so reminds me of my teenage years. It was my number one powder I used cause it was so affordable and I still like it. Color 120 Classic Ivory worked very well as a finish for my skintone.
Maybelline Fit me concealer in 20 // It was alright but I am very picky with my concealer to say the least (did not like the shape tape either and that is a worldwide favorite). I might choose a lighter shade next time cause it totally blended in with the shape of my foundation and I like to brighten up my under area as well as hide dark circles.
Fit me blush in 35 Coral // Blushes are still great. I have been using Maybelline Fit me blushes for year (I do have quite the color collection). The coral color looks very light and airy and adds a fresh touch to your cheeks. Perfect for Spring.
Master strobing stick cream highlighter // The first cream highlighter I have ever used and I honestly liked it. The application was so easy and it is very intense so little goes a long way. There are two shades available, this is the rose one. I always stayed away from cream highlighter cause I was told when you have oily skin this will only make your skin shine more but I did not experience this at all.
Total Temptation mascara // I have my go-to mascaras and normally I do not switch them but I was pleasantly surprised about the Maybelline mascara. The brush was great to apply the mascara and it did not smudge or run so overall a great product plus it adds tons of volume.
Master Shape brow pencil in Dark Blonde // To be honest I hate it. It is super soft and I have to sharpen it after every use cause there is not tip left to use and it feels so sticky when I apply it to my brows. This was my least favorite product from the whole make-up look.
Superstay Matte Ink in 60 Poet // Normally I love the Superstay Matte Ink glosses and I probably own ten different colors but this one was hard to work with. Maybe it was because of the light color but it cracked after a few hours and looked horrible on my lips. So when you are out and about you can not just wipe it off and reapplying doesn´t do the trick either. I haven´t had this problem with any other color (but they are all more vibrant or darker). Definitely not going to use it again.
Eyeshadow palette Nudes of New York // To be honest I am usually not an eyeshadow girl. I own a ton of palettes because I love to look at all the beautiful sparkly colors but when it comes to applying I go through phases. Some weeks I apply my eyeshadow everyday and then somehow I forget about it cause it ended up in my drawer. The palette has a good variety of shades so you can get many different eyeshadow looks out of it from casual to dramatic. Price point is also good but in my opinion the powder isn´t as pressed as in other palettes so you don´t get too much on your eyeshadow brush and it won´t come off as pigmented as it shows in the palette. Maybe that is just my opinion cause I have mainly been using the Coastal Scents eyeshadow palettes for over a decade now and they are awesome to apply plus pigmentation is wild. This is a neutral product for me but can absolutely be a winner for someone else.
Lasting Fix setting spray // I only use the MAC setting sprays so compared to those I didn´t like this one at all. In my opinion it doesn´t have a matte finish and doesn´t do anything for my make-up.
