New Maybelline Beauty Goods Hit Walmart!

My makeup needs a makeover, so this sampling of new items from Maybelline came right on time!  We tried a variety of goodies for face, lips, and eyes -- here are my faves!

SuperStay 24 Lipcolor

This is my favorite kind of lipcolor in that it is a stain with a gloss (or "conditioning balm") that goes over it. (I've tried other brands in the past, and I've always been a fan.)  What's impressive about the SuperStay is that is really does stay on the lips fairly close to 24 hours. (The gloss, of course needs reapplied as you would a normal gloss.)  I actually prefer a matte look, so I don't use much of the clear gloss coat, if at all.  I put on my favorite shade, the Wildberry, at 8pm, and it really felt smooth.

The next morning, when I woke up, it was still very vibrant, and not flaky or dry-looking like other all-day lipcolors.  The shade seemed a bit dark for day and evening, so you may want to consider where you'll be headed when applying it.  (I might like to wear something darker for going out at night, but may not want to look that "done up" for the next morning's activities.)

One by One Volum' Express Mascara

I was offered both the waterproof and regular mascaras to try, but since I don't wear waterproof, I only tried the regular.  This mascara was impressive, in that it did make my lashes thicker, but not in a "spider" way.  They looked accented, not fake.  I didn't notice them being much longer, however.  I also like the brush, but found that it took several coats to get it as thick as I like.  The brush was very flexible, and those that like a stiffer wand may have problems using it.

As you can see, the eye on the left has the mascara lightly applied.  Available in Blackest Black, Very Black, and Brownish Black, there is a boldness level for every user.

On the plus side, I did find myself quite upset about something the day I used it and actually cried for the first time in about 2 months.  The mascara, while not waterproof, didn't drip all over my face.  It took my usual face wash to get all of it off my lashes, but it wasn't gunky like waterproof is, and I didn't lose lashes from taking it off.


This is a line of makeup solutions customized to your skin shade.  Just pick your true shade (mine is 115), and you'll find a liquid foundation, concealer, powder, and blush that goes well with your tone.  Designed to enhance what God gave you (not cover it up), this is light formula of color that provides nice coverage.  I used it over my regular moisturizer with no problem, and you can use it in conjuction with your favorite mineral veils or bronzers, as well.

All of these products are avaialable at your local Walmart for the following prices:

--SuperStay 24 Lipcolor $7.94
--One by One Mascara $6.48
--Fit Me Foundation & Powder $6.48
