Makeup Madness with Maybelline – Blushed Nudes, Brow Precise, Push Up Angel and more…

It’s been weeks since I received this generous press drop from Maybelline and I’ve thoroughly put it to the test. There have been hits and misses and products just down right amazing. Keep on reading if you’d like to find out which ones are worth the spend. Maybelline Master Strobing Stick – R160 This is an affordable formula dupe for the renowned Benefit Watts Up highlighter.

Bigger & Bolder Brows with the NEW Benefit Brow Collection

I’m sure by now you’ve seen hundreds, if not thousands of blog posts and videos featuring the NEW Benefit Brow collection. While the collection includes 45 products, some of them have been repackaged and introduced new shades but there are actually only 13 new products. That’s still a lot of items just for eyebrows and it caters for everybody, from sparse brows to dark skin. The Benefit Brow Collection was launched exclusively online at Red Square on the 1st of this month. I usually try to swatch/test items before I purchase but I just could not wait for today. Instead I…
