Review: Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick

Hey everyone!
I already uploaded a review of this product on my YouTube channel (video will be somewhere in post), so check that out if you haven't already.  


  • Pigmentation: The lipsticks are highly pigmented and have great color payoff.
  • Texture: They are very creamy and glide on smoothly, unlike other matte lipsticks they don't tug on the lips and aren't drying.
  • Wear Time: They have average wear time, good staying power.  I tend to get lazy at school and not touch up my lipstick.
  • Shade Range: 10 shades in the line; two nudes, some pinks, a fuschia, a magenta, a coral, reds, and a wine color.  All in all a decent shade range.
  • Finish: Matte
  • Price: $5.49 at Target and $7.99 at Ulta.
  • Availability: Target, Ulta, and any other local drugstore (ei.Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, etc.)
  • Overall: I really like them and definitely recommend!
Bottom to Top: Lust for Blush, Touch of Spice, Divine Wine

NEW L'Oreal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray


Hey everyone!
If you didn't know already, L'Oreal has come out with a new makeup setting spray.  Now this isn't actually the first setting spray to come from a drugstore brand (NYX and e.l.f.) but it is exciting.

According to the L'Oreal website the setting spray is $16.99, which is up there in price when it comes to the drugstore.  The description on the website says, "Keep your makeup looking fresh hours after application: no melting, fading or touch-ups necessary. This lightweight, oil free setting spray locks in your total makeup look, Face, Eyes, and Lips, preventing color from smudging or settling into fine lines for all-day staying power."

It claims to, "lock in makeup for a 'just applied' makeup look all day," and to have a, "lightweight mist, barely there feel."  There is also a link to a $1 off coupon on the site(which I have linked below) but you are still shelling out at least $16 on this product.



I am on the fence about this product because of the price but maybe if I have a coupon and it is on sale I will pick it up and review it for you guys.  Let me know your thoughts in the comments, love it? hate it? over priced?
