Super Impressed by Maybelline Super Stay 24H

If you want an in expensive, good coverage, long-wear, oil free, light feeling foundation that doesn’t settle into crease or fine lines with SPF 19 then maybe Maybelline Super Stay 24H with micro-flex stretch formula, non transfer, 24 hour makeup is the foundation for you.  Maybelline Super Stay comes in a pump which is wonderful but the bottle is nothing to look at.  This is not a foundation you would put out on your bathroom shelf to impress your mates, but don’t be deceived by it’s less than pretty looks, this is a great product.

Maybelline:            ‘Flexible, breathable all day comfort’

Me:                         This really doesn’t feel like a long-wear foundation as it’s quite light in texture and it feels equally light on your skin.  The flexible side of this product is where it really shines in my opinion.  It doesn’t sit into fine lines or creases, it seems to move with your skin!! When I wear a long-wear foundation (e.g. Estee Lauder DoubleWear or Revlon Colour Stay – two of my favourites) on my face I find they sit in creases around my eyes – at 40 yrs old this is a concern.  Read the rest of this entry »

Maybe it’s Maybelline or Maybe it Smells Funny?

I’m in a bit of pickle with this lipstick, I want to like it but I’m not sure?

Here’s my thinking:

On the plus side: 

  1. I love the colour, and the range is quite broad with several shades of Pinks, plums, reds, nudes, and pearl colours. Check them out online at
  2. The Colour staying power is good and lasts for hours without wearing off in a funny way – you know how sometimes longwearing lipsticks after a few hours can make you look like a 4 year old that just eaten an ice pop (that’s popsicle to our American sisters – I think?).  Well no danger of that here.
  3. I like the see through coloured plastic holder – quite pretty. Read the rest of this entry »

New Maybelline Gel Eyeliner Review

From the outset I have to say that I was really impressed with this product.  I usually use Clinique’s gel eyeliner and I found that Maybelline’s gel eyeliner compares very well to it.  In fact I’d say it’s a tiny bit better!  (opps can’t believe I just said that!!)

Aisling from on TV3’s Xposé compared it to Bobbi Brown’s gel eyeliner and was impressed by this product, so that’s gotta be a good thing!

In my opinion Maybelline’s gel eyeliner is a great little product at a great price of €11.99 and comes with a really nice little brush that is full sized (unlike Clinique that give you a dolly sized brush!)  So how does it compare to my usual fav Clinique?  Read the rest of this entry »

Maybelline XXL Pro Mascara Review – An Oldie But A Goodie!

I was contemplating buying Model Co. Fiber Lash, but having looked at some of the mixed reviews, I came to the conclusion that I just couldn’t warrant paying €30 for it.   On top of that, given the fact that mascara should be discarded after 3 – 6 months, I find it very difficult to pay big bucks for the stuff!  So I’m always looking for a good reasonably priced mascara that won’t have me in tears when I have to chuck it!

In my hunt for something more sensibly priced, I came across a product I haven’t used in years and was surprised but delighted to see that it still exists; Maybelline XXL Pro Volume & Length Microfibre mascara.  This stuff is great!  It really does lengthen lashes but I don’t think it really thickens my lashes.  Read the rest of this entry »
