Makeup MUST-HAVES from Maybelline! (Top 10)

 

Hey everyone!

Some of you may recall a series called the Budget Monday series where I used to talk about affordable beauty products. In today’s feature, I am going to talk about my favorite budget beauty brand – Maybelline and my Top 10 favorite products from the brand!

 

 

 1. Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish (Rs 75)

 

I am a big fan of the Maybelline Color Show nail polishes – the regular range as well as the Glitter Mania range! They are great quality and super affordable! Hands down best budget beauty polishes in my opinion! Some of my favorite shades are Coral Craze, Berry Sexy, Red Carpet and Pink Champagne. (Buy Online)

2. Maybelline Dream Touch Lumi Highlighting Concealer (Rs 450)

 

I tried a highlighting concealer (review here) for the first time and absolutely LOVED it! The concealer cum highlighter brightens up shadows under the eyes and can be used along the cheekbones as well for a subtle glow. It gives medium coverage and looks very natural. The formula is easy to blend, doesn’t get cakey or patchy and stays well throughout the day in the under eye area. I love a natural glow on the skin and this one is great for that! For your reference, I use the shade Honey. (Buy Online)

3. Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Polish : Glam 13 (Rs 450)

 

For quick everyday makeup, I prefer lip glosses over lipsticks and Lip polish in shade Glam 13 is the perfect everyday peachy pink shade  (review here) for Indian girls. The formula is slightly thick but doesn’t feel sticky or uncomfortable on the lips. It feels very hydrating and comforting and provides enough coverage to even out my pigmented lips. LOVE this!  (Buy Online)

4. Maybelline Drama Stylist 36 hour Gel Liner : Black (Rs 475)

 

I love the reformulated Maybelline gel liner (review here)! I’m more of  a pencil or gel liner person and I love liners that are super black like this one. The texture is smooth and creamy, the pigmentation is great and it stays as well as any other high end gel liner. It also comes with its own brush that comes in super handy! (Buy Online)

5. Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm (Rs 125)

 

Baby Lips are definitely one of the most popular products from Maybelline and for good reason (review here)! These are super cute lip balms that come in various fruity flavors and in clear and tinted variants as well. I’m a lip balm junkie and I have loved using these since the time they launched! They are fairly hydrating and I love the tinted Berry one for sheer pink lip. Also recommend the variant Mango Pie, it smells delicious! (Buy Online)

6. Maybelline Cheeky Glow Blush  : Fresh Coral (Rs 250)

 

When all brands are steadily increasing their prices, Maybelline has been rolling out great products at an even better affordable price! One such amazing one is the Cheeky Glow blush which is the best blush you can find on a budget in India (review here). The texture is smooth, it blends easily and can be easily layered for more color. This comes in 3 variants but my favorite is Fresh Coral – a pretty coral pink that brightens the face and adds a natural, health flush of color. These are a must-have! (Buy Online)

7. Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye shadows (Rs 350)

 

Thinking of buying the MAC Paint Pots? Pick the Maybelline Color Tattoos instead! These are long wearing cream to powder eye shadows that are just as good as the MAC ones in my opinion (review here). The textures are fairly creamy, the pigmentation is good (and easily buildable) and they can be worn alone or under powder eye shadow to extend the wear time. My favorite shades are Bad to the Bronze and Bold Gold!  (Buy Online)

8. Maybelline Clearglow BB Stick (Rs 250)

 

When all the brands were rushing to launch BB creams, Maybelline went one step ahead with the BB Stick (review here). The super convenient twist-up stick is great for quick makeup and touch ups. Women who do their makeup on the go would love this! The texture is super blendable and this actually works great for normal to oily skin. (Buy Online)

9. Maybelline Dream Mousse Liquid Foundation (Rs 575)

 

This is one of the best budget foundations in my opinion (review here). The airy liquid-mousse texture is very easy to work with, it blends well giving medium coverage, a natural satin finish and doesn’t break down easily with oil and sweat. It also minimizes the look of pores and imperfections giving a softer, more airbrushed look to the skin. I recommend this to everyone looking for a good, dependable budget foundation that would work for everyday wear as well as special occasions. It photographs nicely too! For your reference, I use the shade Nude Light. (Buy Online)

10. Maybelline Volume Express The Falsies Mascara (Rs 450)

 

This is one of my favorite volumizing mascaras and I’ve repurchased it a couple of times. Curiously, I never got around to reviewing it (will do it soon!). I love Maybelline and L’Oreal mascaras and this one is great for adding some insane volume to your lashes! The formula is slightly on the wetter side but that works great for my lashes. The curved brush is not too big so its easy to use it on the inner and bottom lashes. The formula dries fairly fast and in 2-3 coats, you get wonderfully plumped lashes. Available in both washable and waterproof variants. (Buy Online)

Worth Mentioning : Maybelline Colossal Kajal (Rs 149)

 

The Colossal Kajal is Maybelline’s star product (review here)! I’m not much of a kajal wearer but I really liked the reformulated version when I tried it. The formula is soft and creamy, it is a rich black color (that we expect and love in a kajal) and it is fairly long wearing. If budget is a constraint, this is a great option especially for those who wear kajal everyday and go through tubes quickly. (Buy Online)

This is also available in a Turquoise variant  (review here)!

      Hi Manali, its difficult to predict foundation and concealer shades so I'd recommend you try it out at the counter. I don't have much idea about the Maybelline Liquid mousse foundation shades but in Revlon, Natural Tan should suit you. As for Lumi touch concealer, Honey might be a touch light for you but I can't be sure. Do check it out at the store.
