Birthday Makeup Look ft. Maybelline*

Another year has come and gone and today I am a year older! This year, I decided to use the products that Maybelline was kind enough to send over for me to try and create a birthday look with it. I won't be doing any partying as I am 37 weeks pregnant, so most likely I'll either go out for dinner with the hubby or just get some take out :) Whatever it is, it will be extremely low key! 

With that being said, I used the City Mini Palette (Chill Brunch Neutrals - $11.96 cad) to create two different eye looks, one more neutral brown and the other a purple smokey eye and paired it with three different lip options from the SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick and Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipcolor

The products used to create this look include:
1. Maybelline Master Contour - 010 Light - $12.96 cad
2. Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder - 15 Light - $8.96
3. Eye Studio Eye Liner - Brown - $9.96
4.  City Mini Palette -Chill Brunch Neutrals $11.96 cad
6. SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick - 10 Dreamer / 25 Heroine - $9.96
7. Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipcolor - 800 Dynamite Red - $7.96

The lipstick above is the SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in 10 Dreamer. The color is a beautiful baby pastel pink that is a whipped formulation. It is a little bit drying in the sense that it will cling on to any dry skin patches you have, so please make sure you either have exfoliated your lips before hand, or that you apply it over a balm. The color is opaque and distributes evenly and I really enjoy it. The price point of being under $10 is also an added bonus. 

The lipstick above is the SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in 25 Heroine. This vibrant coral red is the same formulation as the pastel pink above. Same thoughts go behind this lippie. The color delivers a nice punch and is opaque in one swatch. If you go over it twice (like I did on the top lip) it does smear a bit, so I suggest you brave it and go over your lips with one sweep for that gorgeous result afterwards. 

Lipstick color above is Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lipcolor - 800 Dynamite Red. My favorite formulation is this lipstick. I have been using this formulation for years (see my post in 2015 about them). It is honestly the best drugstore lipstick I have used - the color delivery, the way it feels on the lips, the scent - everything about it is perfect! It is also under $8 so you can technically buy like 3-4 of them and it'd be the price of a regular lipstick of a higher end brand and it works just as flawlessly.

As for the other products, the eyeshadow palette works great in application, it is finely milled and deposits colors appropriately on the lids and stays all day. The contour stick is buttery and blends into the skin naturally. The finishing powder I was able to use as foundation, it was actually buildable from a sheer to medium finish without looking cakey. In the pictures above I did not photoshop my skin at all. Lastly the eyeliner, WOW - you must get it, it is under $10 and performs better than some of the high end gel liners I've used!


Until next time, XO - M.
