Maybelline is one of those brands that all makeup junkies are familiar with.
That's because the company has been around since 1915 when they introduced their cake mascara as the first piece of modern eye makeup that women could use everyday.
Since then, Maybelline has expanded its range to include foundations, concealers, blushes, eye shadows, lipsticks, and just about every other makeup item under the sun.
Available at a variety of drugstores and mass merchandise stores around the world, the brand also offers prices that are more budget-friendly than department store brands.
But even with lower price tags, you don't want to waste your money on products that won't suit your needs or work with your skin. So if you're thinking of picking up a few new items from Maybelline, here are six of their best products to start with.
Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Shadow
Maybelline's Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadows are one of the more versatile items that the line offers. You can blend a little across your lids and wear the shadows all on their own, or layer a powdered eye shadow over them so they serve as a colored base that intensifies the look your shadows. And they work as eyeliners too. Best of all, they come in a range of shades, from bright blues and purples to natural taupe and bronze shades. $6.99.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer
The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Erase Dark Circles Concealer not only helps hide darkness under the eyes; it can conceal fine lines and puffiness too. The creamy, lightweight formula blends easily under the eyes and doesn't crease so it's super easy to apply. It's available in six shades, including a neutralizing option for extremely dark circles and a brightening shade for some luminosity under the eyes. $9.99.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor
Maybelline's Color Sensational Lipcolors feature pure pigments to ensure crisp, vivid color, but they also contain honey nectar to ensure that they feel as good on the lips as they look. Best of all, they're available in a wide variety of colors and finishes so they're bound to be an option to fit your look. $7.49.
Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze Blush Stick
There's something about cream blush that just looks fresh and glow-y on the skin. Maybelline's Face Studio Master Glaze Blush Sticks definitely provide a glow, but they come in convenient stick form so you don't even need a brush to apply -- just swipe a little on each cheek and blend in with your fingers. They won't clog pores either, so they'll work for all skin types. You can choose from six gorgeous shades. $9.99.
Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder
Maybelline's Dream Wonder Powder isn't like most finishing powders -- it's smooth-whipped so it has less talc than traditional powders, which means you won't get a powdery or cakey finish. Instead, the Dream Wonder Powder glides onto the skin to hide flaws -- and it's available in 16 shades so you are sure to find an option that flatters your skin tone. $9.99.
Maybelline Full 'N Soft Washable Mascara
For soft, fluttery lashes, you can't beat Maybelline's Full 'N Soft Washable Mascara. The thickening formula contains Vitamin E so your lashes don't feel stiff and brittle -- and there's no clumping either. It's hypoallergenic and safe for contact wearers too. If you have problems with your mascara running, it's also available in a waterproof formula. $7.77.
