Maybelline Madness

Sunday, February 5, 2012


I enter a shop, and if I am in mood to buy cosmetics I head straight to the Maybelline counter and shop to my hearts content. Maybelline is the cheapest makeup brand available in market and for someone who just uses eye pencil and lip gloss on a regular basis, Maybelline is good enough. Anyways I am gonna throw away the pretty packets once the expiry dates are crossed so, why invest in high end brands?. I have clear skin (Read :Dry/Normal) with occasional breakouts so , there is no brand I am loyal to. Yesterday when I went shopping with the girls I picked up few Maybelline products.






1. BB cream: Have been reading rare reviews about this product for some time now and it's high time that I get myself one, so picked it up in nude shade. I didn't allow the SA to describe the benefits of this cream, instead I thought her a thing or two, I say perks of having so many amazing bloggers who take the pain to review latest product in market. BB cream has been shifted to my office bag, it may come handy on days when I look totally down and beaten.





2. Maybelline fruit jelly: Until yesterday, I didn't have a clear gloss in my kit. I do have now:). Hoping it will add much needed gloss to my lipstick . I am practicing my pout you see.....so that I can strike that perfect pose.





3.Maybelline color sensational in Tinted Taupe: Had ordered Pink Me Up online after seeing swatches online. Initially, I was planning to buy Hooked On Pink but changed my mind after reading the reviews. Yesterday when the SA showed me the swatch of pink me up, I was aghast as it was nothing I had imagined. My friend who picked up My Mahogany online was luckier. Another friend purchased Crazy For Coffee shade from the same series. I had to have another lipstick to wash away the pain :P. I wanted something more mauve but, picked the tinted taupe from the browns instead. Damn!!!I am a crazy brown lady...





4.Maybelline colorsensation lipgloss in plum-tastic: Just wanted a non-glittery lipgloss so I settled in for this. No backup story...





Ok that's it, let me run off before my dad catches me blogging (I am yet to attend a wedding in 2 hours and Iv not gotten ready yet :P)

PS:- I am waiting for a big package to arrive from A-J-Store. You guys don't know what A-J-Store  is?. Oops!!I pity you guys, you are missing out on amazing bargains and trendy clothes. More on that in my next post.

@Cherry Lane Thank you:)

@beingFab The BB cream is very much in demand. Kerala is yet to warm upto the idea of BB cream...The gloss stays for 4-5 hours after which just the color remains...

@Vanu I picked the cream in nude, the SA told me that the next shades are pink tinted. It gives me a fresh feeling, instantly lightens up the skin tone(not too much), easily blends...
