reviews: new drugstore makeup

Over the last little while, I have tried a few new drugstore makeup products: Maybelline BB Cream, Maybelline Fit Me Blush and Rimmel's Match Perfection 2 in 1 Concealer.  I have had mixed reactions to these products, and wanted to share my thoughts with you!

Maybelline BB Cream in Light: 

Though this product looks quite dark when you put it on your skin, it blends perfectly to match your skin tone. There are other BB Creams that I prefer to this one, but I do like that the colour isn't too dark. It provides a nice light coverage and adds a lot of moisture to the skin. Personally, I like a fuller coverage, so I wouldn't be comfortable wearing this as is. However, it's a great base. Recently I've been using this and then applying my foundation over top to get even more coverage. If you are looking for a BB Cream that is moisturizing and light, then this will work really well for you! It comes in great variety of shades as well. Overall, a decent product!

Maybelline FIT Me Blush in Light Mauve:

I love this! The blush is really buildable, so you're not getting a ton of product on your cheeks all at once. The colour that I chose is Light Mauve, which is natural but sexy. This is great for an everyday blush or for really playing up a dark smokey eye. I have found myself reaching for this blush a lot lately!

Rimmel's Match Perfection 2 in 1 Concealer:

This concealer claims to conceal and highlight the under eye area. It doesn't provide a whole lot of coverage, but it does brighten the under eye area really well. As a concealer, I would say this is a miss. As an under eye brightener, however, this product is great! It looks really beautiful on the skin. It is a shame that the coverage wasn't better, but I am liking this product to brighten the under eye.

Have you tried any of these drugstore products? What did you think of them?

  24. The BB Cream is my 2nd skin on summer. I wear it sometimes, on winter with some pouder over , instead of my foundation when I need some extra-hidration.
