Maybelline’s Baby Skin. A lot of people say that this is a dupe for Benefit’s The POREfessional, and while I wouldn’t necessarily go that far, I definitely think it’s a fantastic primer for the price. The packaging is also really nice, and fits easily into your makeup or travel bag.
One of my favorite liquid liners of all time is Maybelline’s Line Stiletto in Blackest Black. This is a felt-tip liner, and is the first liquid liner I was ever able to use properly and with ease. It’s very pigmented and gives you a dark, dramatic line that stays all day without smudging. If you’re trying to achieve the perfect winged liner or cat eye look, I definitely recommend picking this up and giving it a try.
Surprise, surprise….we have another Maybelline product (I swear, this is not a sponsored post, haha). This brand I particularly love for their lipsticks – they have so many different collections, like The Buffs, Vivids, Color Sensational, and more. My current favorite is from their Creamy Mattes collection, a color called Daringly Nude, which is a soft, pinky nude shade that looks really natural for everyday wear (plus, bonus points for it being a matte that doesn’t dry my lips).
Another product that’s supposed to be a dupe is ELF’s Eyebrow Kit. I’ve heard that it’s a nearly perfect dupe for Anastasia’s Dipbrow Pomade and Brow Powder Duo (I’ve yet to try either of those so I can’t really compare them). The left side of the eyebrow kit is a tinted wax, which you use to line and shape your brows, and then the left side is a powder to help fill everything in and keep it all in place. It’s such a high quality product, I can’t believe you can get it at Target for only a couple bucks.
The final product is one you guys have heard me mention quite a lot recently. L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadows are absolutely dreamy and have quickly become some of my favorite everyday shadows. My personal favorites are Amber Rush and Iced Latte, and I’d really like to try a few of their smokier shades like Taupe and Smoldering Plum. The shadows are loosely-packed pigments and offer a lot of color for just a little bit of product. I recommend using your fingers to apply these, as using an eyeshadow brush gave me hardly any color payoff.
