Rite Aid Haul: Featuring Maybelline

Maybelline has definitely stepped up their game. I have been really impressed with their lip makeup. These lip colors are very pigmented. Even the Baby Lips had a nice tint to it. Plus the formula on all the lip makeup I tried is very creamy and moisturizing.

I have used the CoverGirl Natural Hue Liquid Makeup in the past.  I like the All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation much better.  This foundation does a better job of providing coverage (coverage is buildable).  Most days I skip using concealer. The foundation feels lightweight. I also noticed it controlled oily shine better than the Natural Hue Liquid Makeup. I still had a little oily shine on my nose but it wasn’t that bad. The color also stayed true throughout an 8-hour workday.  I used the foundation in conjunction with the lasting matte pressed powder. The pressed was great for touchups and it didn’t cake up.

I also tried the Jumbo Gloss Balm. The gloss balm provided sheer color that lasted about four hours. What I liked the most about the gloss balm is that it twists up. I don’t have to worry about sharpening a pencil to get more color.  The gloss balm isn’t sticky either and is a great alternative to traditional lip glosses. The CoverGirl Queen Collection All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation retails for $9.79 at Target. The CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm retails for $6.99 at Target. The CoverGirl Queen Lasting Matte Pressed Powder retails for $4.99 at Target.
