It doesn’t matter if you’re in college or an established professional, Maybelline New York is a go-to brand for women of every age, Team POPxo included! You may own just one or 2 products or have an enviable collection of their products, but there’s no denying that Maybelline cosmetics are fabulous, worth every penny and definitely help us feel our prettiest best. So we thought we’d put together a list of the Maybelline must-haves EVERY girl should have in her vanity case. These are inexpensive, good quality and are perfect examples of why it’s such a favourite beauty brand. Ready, set, shop!
1. Maybelline Colossal Kajal 12 Hour Smudge Proof
Arguably one of the best and most popular kajals around. It’s something that all girls should have in her purse at all times. If you don’t use it already then we really don’t know what you’re waiting for. You’re not going to go back to any other kajal after this!
Both the lip balm and the Candy Wow collection are perfect for moisturizing your pucker with a subtle hint of colour. They’re perfect for a fuss-free, polished effect to use daily while making your pout super soft and lush.
Blush is an integral part of your makeup routine to give you that pretty, rosy glow, and this one never fails at doing that. Super budget-friendly and pigmented, it has a soft, satiny texture and is so easy to blend. Even someone who isn’t that fond of makeup will warm up to this blush.
Fit Me is one of their newest ranges to launch in India and it’s brilliant. The concealer has got to be our favourite and one we would recommend for covering up under eye circles as well as other blemishes. It’s lightweight but highly pigmented, which means it gives great coverage without looking super cakey. It has a breathable formula that isn’t waxy or oily and gives a very natural effect. It’s definitely a beauty buy you won’t regret.
5. Maybelline Color Sensational Bold Matte Lipsticks
Maybelline has some fabulous lippies, but if we had to pick one line then it would be this because it’s not easy to find a matte lipstick that is so creamy and moisturizing at the same time. It has a non-drying formula made from jojoba and honey nectar to protect your pout while giving striking colour. Our fave shade would be Mat 3, which is a reddish coral shade that suits the Indian skintone amazingly.
Most Indian makeup brands don’t sell a really good eye shadow palette that contains matte as well as shimmery shades, which totally makes this one a winner. Beauty junkie or not, a nudes makeup palette is a must to have around for a polished effect in the day that you can build into a stunning look for the evening. All the shades are well suited for Indian skin and are great for daily use as well as occasion wear.
A compact powder is essential to stash in your bag to salvage your look with touchups through the day and to sap up oiliness. This one has a silky texture that feels soft on your skin and keeps your look fresh and matte for long, without giving your face that horrible white cast like so many other powders.
Dressing up our eyes is our most fav makeup move and this glossy liquid liner is perfect for a striking effect. It’s intense, glossy and smudge-proof – basically everything we love in a good eyeliner. Oh and it’s also available in 5 metallic shades if you want to take a break from black.
Forget about those pricey BB creams, this one does an amazing job and is practically a steal. It helps even skin tone, brighten your complexion, hydrate and protect your skin from the sun! It’s amazing for daily use.
