Haul! - Maybelline and Revlon

If you follow me on twitter i mentioned that the past week Revlon and Maybelline were 40% off and i figured of taking advantage of a few things that i've been wanting to try out. I will give you first impressions then be open to do full post reviews for products that i need more time to test out and give you a better review.
So here are the few things that i picked up...

Revlon PhotoReady foundation in 006 Medium Beige - i only wore it about three times but so far i really love this foundation. I was really worried about the whole glitter part and because i have oily skin i thought it would definitely make me look like a disco ball, but it doesn't. The shimmers are very fine and it just gives my face a healthy glow - Stay tuned for a full review post soon...

Maybelline ExpertWear eyeshadow singles in Silken Taupe - i had really high hopes for this eyeshadow. The name sounds smooth and i thought it would be a nice all over the lid color but it hardly is. It's a bit hard to work with. It's not soft and the color is just a light taupy shimmer that would probably be nice in the inner corners or highlight. I will try to find more uses for it and keep you updated.

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner - I got this in Blackest Black. They have three other colors: Brown, Charcoal and Eggplant. I love the consistency of this liner. It goes on smoothly and you can easily build up how intense you want it. You can smudge it if you want and it's long lasting. As you can see by the pictures, i tried to wipe it off and you can still see it on my hand. I'm not a big fan of the brush. The first time you use it it works really nice then it just gets hardened and its more difficult to smooth it out. I hope the liner doesn't dry out on me fast.

Maybelline Dream Mousse concealer in Cream - It's the darkest shade for Light skin tones. They have other two darker ones. The concealer is a matte finish and very soft and smooth. I use it under my eyes and i absolutely love it. I will do a full post review with pictures and more details after i use it more.

Revlon Lipgloss in Peach Petal - I've been seeing reviews on this and i absolutely loved it so i really wanted to try it. The color is gorgeous. It's a creamy nude. It's a bit of a sticky consistency and it doesn't last very long but still i love it. It kind of reminded me of Nars Turkish Delight but it's not as pink. It looks the same because of the creamy look and feel to it. This is definitely my new go-to lipgloss i love it on either lipstick or on bear lips.
What are some of your current favorites?
Any good recommendation from Revlon or Maybelline that you like?


  1. I love Revlon lipsglosses! But I'm not a fan of Maybelline eyshadows, they all seem to be so sheer and shimmery )=

  2. Nice Haul although im not a big fan of Maybelline in general as they test on animals and openly say they do :(

  3. @Gaby - i had no idea Maybelline shadows are so hard to work with so i was a little sad
