Maybelline is an iconic beauty brand that you recognize instantly by the brand packaging and the classic tagline, “Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline!”. When I started wearing makeup, Maybelline was one of the brands that I shopped because it has been easily accessible in drug stores. The first thing I purchased was the Great Lash Mascara in the pink and green packaging. I felt so grown up with this Maybelline mascara in my purse. I’ll still buy a tube of Great Lash just for nostalgia sake. I recently shopped my stash and was able to narrow down my picks of the best Maybelline makeup that you must have.

Maybelline has evolved over the years and has expanded their shade ranges and while they have done some trendy things, I appreciate how well they have stuck with the classic products. Once Maybelline released the Fit Me Foundation, it put the brand on the radar of younger buyers, and with the extended shade range, made it more appealing to women of color.

Instant Age Rewind EraserThis concealer is top notch for correcting and brightening the under eye area. What I love about this is that it is moisturizing, full coverage but never feels caked on. You can also use it anywhere else on the face, I keep a couple shades that will brighten my under eye and also spot correct any blemishes. 

Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation Though this foundation is full coverage, it feels nice and light. It dries down to a matte finish, but even with my dry/combination skin, it doesn’t feel patchy. *Note* Maybelline recently changed the formula of this foundation and it has since gotten mixed reviews, however, it still works well on me. 

Lifter Gloss With Hyaluronic Acid  – Hands down my favorite drugstore lip gloss. The Lifter gloss is pigmented, and moisturizing without being sticky. This gives great color pay off and comes in 20 shades including the new Bronzed collection. This is a gloss that you definitely need to add to your collection, keep one in your purse, the car and at home. 

Falsies Lash Lift MascaraI’ve been a ride or die fan of the Falsies mascara for years. It’s the one mascara that I return to over and over and I’ll put it against any of my expensive mascaras. The Lash Lift not only gives volume for my sparse lashes, but it also lifts and separates the lashes for maximum length. 

Color Sensational Ultimatte Slim LipstickIf you’re looking for a matte lipstick that lasts all day, look no further than the Ultimatte Slim lipstick. I love this lipstick because it glides on like velvet, and the colors are rich and pigmented. I have about 7 of these lippies, and Maybelline recently dropped a Neo-Nudes collection so I’ll have many more once I purchase these.
