Recently, I decided to tryout Maybelline’s SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks. They have a variety of lip shades to choose from and I purchased the following four.
- Easy to apply
- Unique colors but wearable for everyday
- Shades available for every skin tone
- Can look cakey when a second coat is applied
- Difficult to take off and can stain lips
Overall, I am very pleased with the liquid lipsticks by Maybelline. My favorite is “Philosopher” (in the picture below) for the springtime and I know I will probably be reaching for “Seductress” as my new lip go-to. Unfortunately, “Huntress” did not look that great on me and I’m really disappointed because I’ve been wanting to try gray lipstick for so long, but on other reviews that I have seen it does look very beautiful on other people, it’s just not the color for me.
A couple of months ago I purchased Covergirl’s Total Tease Waterproof mascara in “very black”. To my knowledge it is a fairly new product and I’ve always purchased Covergirl mascaras in the past due to its affordability. I’m not a huge fan of high-end mascaras, drugstore usually gets the job done. This may sound a little weird to some of you but what initially drew me to this product was the handle of the wand, it kind of reminds of a unicorn’s horn and it’s pink so, hello. However, when I tried it out for the first time I was not impressed.
Keep in mind, I have very long lashes that NEVER CURL. They have a mind of their own and always stick straight out, so I’m used to finding “fail” mascaras. What I’m trying to say is that I was low-key expecting my upper lashes to be clumpy and look like spider legs, but this mascara’s brush has bristles on each side, with one specifically for the lower lashes. What turned me off completely from Covergirl’s Total Tease mascara is that when I applied the product to my lower lashes it was very messy and got everywhere, even when I just used the regular side of the brush. Lastly, throughout the day it was running and smearing, even when I set my under eyes with concealer and powder.
