For lips, I really love the Super Stay 14HR Lipsticks. I first found out about these when Lisa Eldridge raved about them in this video. I have since gone on to acquire two shades; Non-Stop Red and Neverending Pink. The lipsticks have a wonderfully creamy, densely pigmented formula that is smooth and velvety on the lips and lasts an adequate amount of time; maybe not the full 14 hours but, stands up well through an evening of food and drink.
Maybelline does eye products really well and caused quite a stir when they released the 24HR Colour Tattoo cream eyeshadows. I rate these as highly as my beloved MAC Paint Pots and prefer them over the lacklustre Chanel Illusion D'Ombre. My preferred shades are On and On Bronze and Permanent Taupe; perfect for everyday wear and for creating a smokey eye. Another product that often falls by the wayside in this saturated market is the famed Great Lash* mascara. This is one of the earliest make-up products I remember seeing (probably in some bad 90s TV movie!) and was one of the first mascaras I bought with my own money. It is a great, false lash effect mascara - before false lash effect mascaras even became a thing!
I've found Maybelline base products to be a bit hit and miss. You might remember that I didn't rate the original Fit Me line-up but, I am really impressed by the newest addition; Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation Stick*. This is a really nifty little gel stick foundation featuring an anti-shine core. The foundation blends beautifully and dries to a nice matte finish. I don't use this daily but, keep it in my bag for on-the-go touch-ups. The Eraser* is a product that got massively positive reviews over the pond in America and when I finally got to try it, I ended up loving it. Again, it's a great on-the-go product and I really rate it for the undereye area, especially for eradicating dark circles that aren't too pronounced.
