Short Spring Makeup Tutorial & Maybelline Product Review! πŸ’›πŸ’πŸ’›

Hi Babes! I’m back today with some spring-spiration! πŸ’•πŸŒ·πŸ’• I haven’t done a makeup tutorial for a while and I thought, what a better way to come back with a great makeup look but for the new spring season! 😁 Let’s get right into shall we???

So I was sitting here thinking of colors I associated with spring, first and almost instantly “pastel” came to mind. But I continued to simmer on the idea and I just wasn’t satisfied with pastels right now, I wanted something bolder. Something that could be worn out to a nice dinner date and you look fabulously spring-y but also suave and sexy. Then, I began thinking neutral with a POP of spring color! 😁 So I ultimately decided on a chocolate brown cut crease look, with a vibrant turquoise winged liner to go with it. Please continue reading if you’d like to see what products I used and pictures of my the look I created! πŸ’–

  
Here are the products I used to create this look!

  
  
  
*Benefit “Big Beautiful Eyes” Eye Contour Palette (Dark brown shadow)

*Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in “Ibiza.” (Used as eyeliner)

*Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara 

*Maybelline Master Contour Kit

*Pixi by Petra Beauty Blush Duo in “Rose Gold.”

*Milani “Bahama Beige” Lip Stick

*FLOWER Beauty About Face Liquid Foundation

*Salon Perfect Half-Falsies (Not in photo) 

*OFRA Eyebrow Pencil in Brown (Not in photo)

*MAC Mineralize Concealer (Not in photo) 

*L’Oreal Infallible 16 HR Pro Matte Powder Foundation (Not in photo)

   
Now I just wanted to quickly review the Maybelline products for you! 

 
 

Maybelline The Master Contour Kit
: When I first saw this in my local Walmart I was eager to try it out. Unfortunately, I didn’t so much like the highlight or contour shades. The contour was much too light for my olive complexion, and the highlight was so-so. I have much better quality highlighters by MAC, Pixi and Wet n’ Wild. The one thing I really loved about this palette, was the blush! It is such a beautiful, healthy/natural glow type pink. Like you just got done working out or something, so pretty 😍 I recommend this for the blush. But the contour and highlight might work better for you if you are very fair skinned. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara: This stuff is black gold! πŸ’– I have been in search of an affordable mascara that separates and lifts my lashes towards the sky 🌞 This one does just that. Maybelline is funny, they come out with TONS of different mascaras. We’re always seeing new commercials with supermodel’s with the best looking lashes, and I’ll go out and try all of these mascaras & I’ll hardly like any of them. But finally, one has lived up to it’s claims! πŸ’œ Highly recommend! No need for expensive mascaras when this one exists 😁

Anyways, Thanks so much for reading babes! Please leave your comments and thoughts for me ❀️ xoxo

Compare: Inexpensive L’Oreal & Maybelline NUDE Palettes

So i came across these two palettes at Walmart while i was doing some shopping. I figured for the price i could try them both out, and compare & review them on here for you guys! I’m always open to trying cheaper palettes & products even though i tend to lean more towards brand name makeup. All you really need is the know how, if you are skilled at applying makeup you can make something out of nothing, or in this case, making the most out of a cheap palette.

The larger palette to the left is the L’Oreal LA Palette NUDE 1. The smaller one to the right is the Maybelline “The Nudes” Palette. The smaller palette has two more color choices but the L’Oreal palette has elongated pans with much more product to use.

So, let’s compare. There are some very similar shades in this palette, such as the shimmer browns and gold colors. But here are some differences i noticed while swatching/playing around with these shadows:

  1. The L’Oreal shadows are extremely velvety soft to the touch and apply like a dream to a primed eyelid.
  2. The Maybelline shadows take a little more effort to get good color pay off, i had to layer it on to see the true color.
  3. The L’Oreal shadows have a nicer shimmer formula, they truly look metallic and dazzling on the skin.
  4. The maybelline shadow pan that is in matte black actually had a nice formula, blendable and pigmented. Would purchase it again as a single.
  5. The L’Oreal shadows are all very easily blendable & nicely pigmented.

Overall, i definitely would say i prefer the L’Oreal Β LA palette NUDE 1. It would be ideal for traveling since its sleek and thin, length really doesn’t matter if your slipping it into a big bag or suitcase. It also has a long mirror inside & snaps shut tight. Very wearable everyday shades that can be dressed up or down beautifully depending on occasion. The colors seem very well rounded and can be used around each other in many different looks. They also seem like more appealing, luxurious shades of nude all together. This one was a little more, it costs about $15.00 USD but it’s definitely worth it for some nice silky eyeshadows to throw in your collection. I believe the Maybelline palette was around $10.00 USD. Try one out for yourself!
