Favourite Five | Maybelline

Whether it's food, fashion or makeup (it could literally be anything), it's very easy to get comfortable with things and we all have those brands that we tend to gravitate towards. In terms of makeup, the brands I use are pretty varied, so I got thinking and I thought I'd start a new brand focus series on my blog, highlighting five of my favourite products from a few of my favourite brands.

First up... let's talk about Maybelline!
L-R : The Nudes Palette | Fit Me Foundation in 220 | Eraser Eye Concealer in Nude | Lash Sensational Mascara | Brow Drama in Dark Brown

This is one of my go-to brands on the high street and most of the products in my Favourite Five are ones that I use on an every day basis. They are pretty much holy grail and I wish I had discovered them sooner.

There are a lot of nude palettes out there, but 'The Nudes' palette by Maybelline is the one I reach for the most. Consisting of 12 shades, the palette contains a mixture of matte and shimmer shades, from creams to coppers, caramels to dark chocolate, and it's just the perfect every day palette. It's so versatile and the shades can take you from day to night, giving you a look as simple or as dramatic as you would like. I find myself reaching for this palette constantly!

I cannot sing it's praises enough; this foundation is amazing! It's currently my go-to every day foundation and I wish I had discovered it sooner than I did. I've already reviewed the Fit Me Foundation (here), but in a nutshell, I'd say it's a medium coverage foundation which is definitely buildable. It gives you a dewy airbrushed finish while still looking like skin and it looks and feels very natural when I wear it. My Fit Me Foundation is in shade 220 Natural Beige, and it's a perfect match for my complexion.

The Eraser Eye concealer is another holy grail product which I use all the time, I've already worked my way through 2-3 of these and I will definitely be repurchasing once my current concealer runs out. I love it. I find that the eraser eye concealer just gives me the best coverage under my eyes and on blemishes, and it just makes the skin look brighter and a lot more radiant. If you're on the hunt for a good every day concealer and haven't tried it, I would definitely recommend this! 

I've already seen countless people raving about how amazing this mascara is and I can't say I disagree - it works like a dream! The Lash Sensational helps lift the lashes from the roots and just gives a lot of length and volume without becoming clumpy. I alternative between mascaras, but this is definitely one I always go back to.

This is quite an unusual one for me, because I don't do anything to my brows. I have naturally full brows, and I don't use any products on my brows to fill them in. However, the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara is the only exception. I don't use this all the time, but if my brows are ever misbehaving or a little bit unruly, I like to brush them through with the Brow Drama, just to keep them tidy and to define them. I find that this product just makes my natural brows look a lot more put together and it looks very subtle when I do use it, which I love. 

P.S. There is currently a 'Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price' offer across Maybelline and many other brands on the Boots website, which might be worth a look if you haven't seen it already.

I hope you enjoyed my first of many 'Favourite Five' posts : What are some of your favourite products by Maybelline?
