Every time I look in to doing an FOTD or a 'What's in my makeup bag?' post I am always surprised by just how many products I regularly depend on from one makeup brand, and that brand is Maybelline.
If you were to ask me which makeup brand I would choose if I could only use one for the rest of my life I would like to think I would choose a high-end luxurious or desirable brand like Laura Mercier or Nars but actually I think I would have to pick Maybelline.
This may not always be the case but at the moment the majority of my everyday 'holy grail' products are from Maybelline....
Their mascaras are awesome. So much so that I don't even bother trying other brands, I am always happy with Maybelline's offerings. Whether it is the Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof or the Volum' Express The Rocket Waterproof. They curl, they lengthen and they last all say so I am perfectly happy with their eyelash options.
For my (pretty much daily) winged eyeliner, I never stray from the Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner. But why would I? It's easy to use and won't budge until I remove it at the end of the day. It can even survive my monthly hormonally induced crying breakdowns and that's saying something!
Although I don't own any Maybelline powder eyeshadows (something I do wear most days), my favourite cream eyeshadow base is the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze which can be used as a base to prevent creasing with powder eyeshadows or simply worn on it's own. I use this most days, but I've already shared enough love for this product so I won't go on about it yet again.
Even my current favourite foundation is the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation in 005 Light Beige. A natural finish medium coverage foundation which is perfect for everyday use.
I loved the formula of the Maybelline SuperStay 24hr Concealer, a medium-high coverage liquid concealer which could be used under the eyes or over blemishes, but unfortunately I couldn't find a shade light enough to match my skintone.
Now, if I loved their eyebrow products, powder eyeshadows and blushers as well, my makeup bag could theoretically consist of nothing but Maybelline products. Although I would definitely miss the rest of my collection!
