For over a century, Maybelline has been creating unique and beautiful products to help us look and feel our best. I love so many of their products, but here are my top five recommendations that I think you may enjoy as well.





Obviously, my most used and adored beauty product from Maybelline is their Fit Me Concealer, but since I talk about that product so often, I also want to show some love to my Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation! This is a wonderful quality base product for dry skin; it looks so fresh and natural on the skin and it is the only foundation I have tried that gives me the glow I am looking for. I definitely plan to repurchase this in the Winter because I love the light to medium coverage combined with a radiant finish.

I enjoy using so many different drugstore lip products, but I always love everything I try from the Maybelline Color Sensational line, including their Inti-Matte Nudes Lipsticks and their Shaping Lip Liners. I have been wearing their lipsticks for years — they come in such a wide range of shades to suit all skin tones, and are extremely opaque and comfortable. I recently purchased their lip liner in the shade ‘Dusty Pink’ and love wearing it under my favorite pinky nude lipsticks to make them last longer.

I know I have mentioned the Color Tattoo 24 HR Eyeshadows in several of my latest posts, but if you are wondering which products to try from Maybelline, I genuinely love and recommend this one! They are so quick and easy to use, but the best part is how multidimensional they are; just one swipe of this impressively long-lasting cream appears as if multiple shades and finishes were used.

Regardless of price, the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner in ‘Blackest Black’ is my all-time favorite eyeliner. I think almost everyone struggles to master the art of winged liner and this is an absolute game changer! For me, gels are much simpler to use than both liquids and pencils because they are precise and easy to control while still being somewhat forgiving. This is the only one I have found that lasts all day long without transferring or smudging despite my watery eyes.

The Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is lovely option for that fanned out effect we are all lusting after. I love using this during the daytime because it makes my lashes look soft and fluffy without sacrificing length or curl. Thanks to its wonderful wand, this separates each individual lash without ever becoming clumpy.
