As you have probably gathered…I love beauty deals…and though I tend to gravitate towards the higher end lines…there are a few exceptions- Maybelline is one of those…I think the have put out some exceptional products lately…and I actually use the Maybelline Dream Airfoam foundation, the Bouncy blush and the Color Tattoo Cream Gel Eyeshadow pretty much daily.

My 2 Cents:
Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation& Bouncy Blush
So I am really loving the Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam foundation…I admit…I tried another brand here…but I quickly switched back. I do like the powder…though I am currently using another product It Cosmetics ByeBye Pores Finishing Powder)
I love the blush… it is the strangest blush ever- lol- it is literally “Bouncy” ….kind of sponging…it suffers from an identity crisis…is it a powder? or cream?…it can’t decide…I LOVE the color and I like it so far…I used to apply it with a brush, but I gave in and just use my fingers now….as far as the highlighting concealer…I have not tried it…though I am a BIG fan of highlighting…and concealing (I use 4 conceal/highlight products daily).
Color Tattoo 24HR Eye Color
I own 4 of these. (Audacious Asphalt, Bad to the Bronze, Too Cool & Tough as Taupe). I usually stay away from cream based eye shadows, because they like to crease on me… but I like the highly pigmented colors and read a couple good reviews (and I had coupons) so I gave it a whirl… and I am glad I did.
I either do use The Benefit STAY DON’T STRAY as a primer first (you can check it out here) or I layer another shadow on top. I apply it with the Definer Brush #15 from Smashbox (you can check it out here)…it is my favorite brush and I have had this brush for at least 7 or 8 years so the $24 investment was worth it for me (or whatever the price was when I purchased it)
Does it crease…well yes a little with the primer…especially after I spent a hour gardening here in the South…but not so much. When I layer a powder shadow on top…I really do not notice any creasing. Still, if I apply it in the morning, I touch it up in the afternoon/evening…but let’s face it…everything needs a touch up by then.
I see a lot of Maybelline sales throughout any given month…but right now you can get $5 in ECB at CVS when you spend $15 on qualifying Maybelline products through May 5, 2012. You can view the details here.
