#LoveMaybellineNewYork ~ Review + Swatches

Thanks to Chick Advisor, I was able to test out some new and cult-classic cosmetics from Maybelline. I received 5 products to review and after using them for a few weeks now, I'm ready to share my thoughts!

First up we have the Master Camo Color Correcting Kit in shade 100 light. This palette has 6 pans; 2 colour correctors, 2 concealers and 2 highlighters. I have some redness in my cheeks and the green colour corrector did a great job of concealing it. The concealers were a good match shade wise, and helped to conceal the slight shadows under my eyes. I did find that they creased, but when set with powder it was minimal. The highlighters were a bit of a disappointment. I prefer a blinding highlight and these were too difficult to build up. If you like a subtle highlight, then you would probably like them.

Next up is the Brow Precise Perfecting Highligher in the shade 300 light. After filling my brows in I always use a highlighter or concealer to help further define them and to conceal any stray hairs. I found the shape of this highlighter very user friendly. The formula is super creamy and easy to blend. The shade is just slightly lighter than my foundation so it provided very subtle and natural highlighting. This is a product I will be re-purchasing!

As a highlighter addict I was very happy to see the Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighter in my package. I received the shade 100 light and it's a very pretty pink hued highlighter. I love how versatile the Master Strobing Liquid is! I can add it to my foundation or lotion for an all-over glow or apply it to the high points of my face to highlight or strobe. This is a very bold highlighter (my favourite!) however it can be blended out for a subtle sheen. I plan on purchasing this in the gold hue to try next because I love it so much!

I was also sent the Colossal Big Shot Mascara and I'm sad to say that it didn't quite live up to the hype. I have long lashes, but they're straight and lacking in volume. I found that this mascara didn't add much volume and it clumped a bit. I could work around that, but it flaked when I applied more than one coat and that is a big no-no.

I was also sent the Fit Me! Matte + Poreless foundation. I've heard so many great things about this foundation and I was eager to try it out. Unfortunately, I received shade 122 Creamy Beige which was too cool for me (although it doesn't look like it in the photo). I was unable to wear it, so I don't have a review.  But.. I did swatch it for you all 😊

  1. I really want to try the highlighter in gold as well.
    I enjoy liquid highlighters the most especially in
    summer months!

  2. The brow highlighter and the Master Strobing highlighter are ones I'm definitely trying. Hopefully they'll have them at my Target this weekend. I think I'll try the pink first. I like the idea of adding a bit to my foundation. I've looked at the Fit Me many times but I can't ever settle on a shade.

  3. The highlighter looks amazing, I might have to give it a try!!!

  4. Great post ChristineI also love Maybelline Cosmetics. I will definitely have to try some of these new products.

  5. Will buy brow highlighter & strobe highlighter. Both looking amazing.

  6. I love that mascara :)) Highlighter looks gorgeous & you really get a lot of it :)))
