This week the Makeup Wars members are sharing our favourite drugstore beauty brands. When we decided on this topic it took me no time at all to decide on Maybelline New York as my pick for best drugstore brand. I am not a big drugstore makeup user. I love my luxury makeup. But Maybelline is a brand that not only has many products I love and purchase/repurchase, but they also offer those great products across the board in every cosmetic category. I know I could easily throw a look together using all Maybelline products that I will be happy with.
I thought it would be fun to show you my favourites from a range of categories as well as show you some new products hitting the shelves from Maybelline this season.
My Maybelline Favourites
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24h Eyeshadows – These shadows in their original and newer leather formulas wear like iron and make amazing eyeshadow bases. They are a staple in my kit as well as my personal stash.
Sheer Finish – Maybelline Colorwhisper Lipsticks – I love how juicy and healthy these well pigmented, yet translucent finish, lipsticks make my lips look.
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes – These fun bouncy, mouldable blushes come in beautifully flattering shades and give the most lovely naturally luminous finish.
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream – I love this SPF 30 BB Cream for my dry skin in the summer.
