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.
