“Maybe it’s Maybelline”. Sometimes it’s good to get back to your roots. I was recently on twitter and I started reading some of Sharrie Williams tweets. Sharrie is the grandniece of Tom Lyle Williams, who is the founder of Maybelline. It was perfect timing as I needed a change in my makeup.
My eyes tend to water easy and it was nice not to have black streaks under my eyes; as with other mascara’s. It also did not clump together, which then causes my thin eyelashes to “cake” together and when I try to separate them they either fall out or it turns into one big clumpy lash.
Sorry, L’Oreal but I have tried all of your mascara’s and have to say my lashes and your mascara’s do not get along.
I also purchased Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector Medium Sheer. Who has 8-in-1 Beauty Balm that doesn’t make your skin oily or worse break out? Maybelline. When I say my skin is sensitive; let me paint a picture for you. The moisturizer I use is medical grade as I have tried just about all of them. If my skin has the slightest change in makeup I break out or I get red and blotchy. Needless to say I had a lot of drama/trauma in my teen years when it came to makeup. Back to the story, I was hesitant but thought I would give it a shot.
Insert angelic music here... it worked. I did not break out and I even tried it without my moisturizer with no break out or blotchiness. I did not get oily or shiny. I can wear it with or without powder and I feel confident. I said sometime’s it’s good to get back to your roots. When I was a teenager I used Maybelline. When I “grew up” I started using other brands like Mac, Lancôme, etc. Who wants to pay $40 for Mascara every month? I don’t. I’m tired of paying $48 for my Primer that I still have to wear with a powder.
I paid less than $20 for both products and am
It paid off for me to get back to my roots.
