Wednesday, December 2, 2015

 Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s Maybelline!

From a small, family-owned business to the number one cosmetics company in America, Maybelline New York takes trends from the catwalk to the sidewalk, empowering women to make a statement, explore new looks, and flaunt their own creativity and individuality. Inspired by confident, accomplished women, Maybelline gives you scientifically-advanced formulas, revolutionary textures and up-to-the-minute, trendsetting shades effortlessly, affordably, beautifully. 
- Maybelline India Website

1. Baby Lips: Pucker up beauties! Maybeline Baby Lips is one of the best lip balms available in the market. It is so good that I am on my third tube now, and that too in a span of few months. "Pink Lolitha" is my favorite and a staple in my handbag.
Cost: INR 130 ($2)
Competitor: Nivea, Lakme

2. Color Show Nail Polish: With the beauty market upping the price game every month, Maybelline comes to the rescue once again, after all, us girls love our perfectly manicured nails. They have the best and the most affordable nail paints in the market, especially their duo-chromes (Buried Treasure) are to die for. The duo-chromes looks fancy and expensive. Similar shades in other brands do cost a bomb. 
Cost: INR 100 ($1.5)
Competitor: Chambor, Lakme, Elle18

3. Baby Skin Skin Instant Pore Eraser: This is a staple in my beauty diet. Minimizes my pores, and let's my makeup wear longer. Availability is a big issue, as only few amazon vendors stock this.
Cost: ($7)
Competitor: Colorbar, Loreal

4. Colossal Kajal: No list is complete without the mention of the magic in a harmless yellow pencil. This one changed the game for Maybelline and is an integral part of any vanity loving girl/woman.
Cost: INR 200 ($3)
Competitor: Lakme, Loreal 

5. FashionBrow Duo Eyebrow Pencil: Another product that is currently on a home run. Eyebrow grooming products are not something that most Indian beauty brands touch base on. Maybelline knocked it out of the park with the new Black/Brown eyebrow pencil-cum-brow powder. Lasts long, applies smooth and gives you brows-on-fleek-everyday kinda feeling. 
Cost: INR 245 ($3.5)
Competitor: None

Honorable Mentions

The N*des Eyeshadow Palette: I don't own one, but this is definitely one of the full-on neutral palette for the beauty junkie who wants to save some moolah. A close dupe for Urban Decay N*ked 1 palette, this shadow performs reasonably well, according to my sources.
Cost: INR 990 ($ 15)


Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte Plus Poreless Foundation: I have heard so much about this foundation and how its oily girl's best friend. They have a wide variety of shades suitable for fair-medium-tan skintone.
Cost: ($8)

Falsies Mascara: An affordable mascara, tends to be slightly clumpy on second coat, gives my lashes length, but not lift.
Cost: INR 450 ($6.5)


 So, I am Beauty Insider at Sephora (US), and this mail just landed in my inbox this morning. I am not intending to shop from Sephora within 13th, as I recently placed a ginormous Bath and Body Works order. If you want to order anything from their website, this is the time. Posting my $15 dollar off on $50 coupon here, so that any of you beauty junkies who would want to make use of the coupon can do so. How to use the coupon is provided in the screenshot. Happy Shopping!

What are your favorites from Maybelline?
