I was a bit late on the Gigi Hadid x Maybelline hype because I didn’t see anything in the collection that I absolutely had to have. Nothing stood out, color wise, for me to buy it.
But, a few weeks ago I saw all the products on sale and got two things. Now regretting I even spent money on it.
The eye contour palette is a joke, literally. Quite possibly the worst Maybelline product I have ever tried. It felt like I had bought a counterfeit palette from Ebay. Absolutely worthless! It feels weird saying that since Maybelline is one of my favorite brands. I literally feels like they didn’t even care about the product but instead were hoping people would buy it because Gigi’s name was attached to it. And I’m sure a lot of people did. I’ve used it twice and both times I hated it. The fallout is the worst I’ve ever come across and the color payoff, pretty much non-existent. By noon I didn’t have anything on my eyes anymore.
I’m looking for a matte nude lipstick. I’ve tried a few. IsaDora, Viva La Diva, Maybelline and Rimmel but non of those has the perfect formula. Either they aren’t really matte or they are really drying and make my lips look and feel weird.
I hear NYX Liquid Suede in Sandstorm is good. But it looks more like a brown color rather than a nude. Someone told me it dries to a nude finish.
These last few days I’ve been on a cleaning spree, going through all my beauty stuff. While doing so I discovered that I’m a nude, natural, gold, earth tone eye shadows junkie. I knew a natural eye shadow is a favorite of mine but I certainly didn’t know I had that many.
Here are some of my faves, the ones I actually use every now and then, all the others are in a box with all my other palettes and single eye shadows that I rarely use.
What are some of your favorite nude/natural singles or palettes?
As you can see I haven’t gotten the go-to nude palette with bloggers, The Naked ones from Urban Decay. That is because I think as long as you have a good eye shadow primer pretty much any and every eye shadow will work…
Let me know what you think!? Am I missing out by not getting it?
Have you ladies tried the Benefit Porefessional primer? I heard a lot about it and was gonna purchase it when I received a sample size in my Glossybox. When I used it the first time it reminded me of a product I had already used before. It was the Maybelline Instant Anti-Age The Smoother Primer, in the pot.
I think they have now discontinued this specific product and have come out with the Instant Age Rewind Primer, which I also love.
Both of these primers give me the same exact result and they feel exactly the same.
I like having a pamper session on a random night every week. As the next few day are gonna be super busy as well as the weekend I chose last night. It’s different from time to time but I’ll take you through what I did this time.
