One of my favorite makeup lines, Maybelline has some spring product launches to help you look good for spring this year, and these are definitely worth it for you to check out. A little foundation. Something to make you easy on the eyes. Maybelline is a brand I trust, not only because they create products I love but products that help me look and feel my best all year round.
I’m not big on wearing makeup, but in the spring and summer, I sometimes like to use a little bit of concealer to protect my skin from the sun. Many foundations carry sunscreen within them, along with other vitamins that nourish the skin in a way we wouldn’t think makeup does. Maybelline is famous for using Aloe, Vitamin E and other natural extracts that can help keep our skin happy and healthy looking.
Superstay 24 Hour Foundation
I love creamy foundations that provide full coverage and don’t give you that caked on feeling. Well, that is exactly what Maybelline Superstay 24 Hour foundation does. First off this foundation is great in its pigment of color. I received two colors: Ivory and Cream and both could be used with my skin tone. I love that it has a flawless finish and is very lightweight. I hate it when I wear makeup and feel like I’m wearing makeup.
Note: If you are unsure of what color you are, go with the lighter color you think your skin tone is.
The moment I put it on, I immediately had great coverage. Those sunspots – gone! Those imperfections – poof! Best of all it really does last all day long and feels great on my skin. You don’t have to use very much, just a dab, so a bottle goes a long way. It has definitely become one of my favorite grocery store foundations to use now almost daily.

Maybelline TattooStudio Waterproof Brow Gel
I’ve used many different products to enhance my brows. I have thick eyebrows and I like them thick. Don’t know why but the Brook Shields 1980’s look has always been my favorite. However, that being said, sculpting my brows is much harder and they often just look bushy. Then I was introduced to Maybelline’s newest product called Tattoo Studio Brow Gel.
Tip: You can wear this for days without having to redo your brows. This is a great product for someone like my mom who has very thin brows and wishes to fill them in and have fuller looking brows.
I will admit at first, I was skeptical about using this product. Brow Gel? Sounds gooey and kinda yucky to be putting on. It’s soooooooo not. It’s one of my favorite products to use. I love the way the small brush which is soft glides on my brows and then the sculpting brush allows me to shape my brows. Best of all, it’s waterproof! I can go swimming, shower and at least my brows stay shaped the way I want all day long, without any smudging or smears.

Maybelline Total Temptation Washable Mascara
When it comes to my green eyes the one thing I hate isn’t the color. It’s the lack of what surrounds my eyes. I literally have no lashes. It’s like I grew lashes as a baby and just stopped. They are so tiny and small, and I’m constantly looking for a mascara to plump them up, providing me with luscious lashes to enhance my big eyes. I got my hands on the new Maybelline Total Temptation Washable Mascara in blackest black to give it a try, and although I was impressed with how creamy the mascara was and how full my lashes looked. I found it rubbed off easy and left my eyes looking too dark. I’m going to keep playing around with it though, see if I can’t perfect using it.
Tip: Sweep the applicator from root to tip as many times as you want to create the volume you want and do not let it dry in between coats.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer (Shade Extension)
I love concealers. Why? Because they do what they are intended to do – conceal things. One of things I hate about my skin is that as I get older (yes I’m aging) I’m finding dark circles under my eyes. My eyes look tired all the time, and I hate the sun spots and age spots I now have. I will do anything to hide them but finding the right product isn’t always easy. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer is Fantastic at removing those dark circles so I don’t look so old and tired.
Tip: Don’t use too much as it really spreads. You need very minimal amount to conceal what you want.

Maybelline Lip Studio Python Metallic Lip Kit
Okay you are going to see this Maybelline lip kit and think: what??? I have no yet mastered how to use Maybelline Lip Studio Python Metallic Lip Kit, which comes with two shades. A creamy lip cream and an almost metallic eye-shadow type lip cover to go with it. You are supposed to the be able to blend the two together to create unique and funky lip colors. All I got was me looking like I was going to a Halloween party.

Now that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give this lip kit from Maybelline a try. In fact, I have learned how to blend the red and gold quite nicely overtop of one another to create a beautiful lip color that I get compliments on all the time. I love the gold. I’m going to continue using it because honestly it creates the most amazing lip colors and I think once I master it more, I’m going to love it more!
