Maybelline Essentials

Hey guys!
So this week we decided to start the beauty section in our blog. Here we will tell you all about the different products that we are loving at the moment and also write a small review on them so that it will help you the next time you go shopping.  All the products mentioned in this section will be the ones that we have personally tried unless stated otherwise.  
This post has not been sponsored and these are just a few products that we regularly use.

A year ago I knew nothing about makeup. I could associate makeup only with a few things like a foundation, a compact powder and a felt tip eyeliner (because it's much easier to use a felt tip as opposed to a gel or a pencil liner). Even though I barely knew how to apply makeup I was always very amazed by it. Recently I started binge watching beauty vloggers on YouTube, learnt a few makeup tricks and bought some makeup products. I am in no way a professional and everything that I write here is solely on my personal experience. I am a newbie to makeup and I have slowly started learning different tricks. So for today's post I thought it would be great if I write about a few makeup essentials that you must own if you are new to the makeup world and these products won't only help you create different new looks and experiment but will also easily fit in your budget.
Coincidentally all the products mentioned in this post are from Maybelline. Only when I started writing this post did I realize how much I love this brand. Maybelline makes some amazing products which last long, are great to use and are also very affordable.

I am going to talk about the basics at first which include my favorite felt tip liner, The Colossal Liner and two mascaras, Colossal Volum' Express waterproof mascara and the Falsies Volum' Express mascara.
I absolutely love my mascara. I am a sucker for beautiful long curled lashes but at the same time I have no idea how to put on false lashes. Falsies are my worst enemy. The Maybelline mascaras help me cheat the falsies look without actually wearing any! I love layering my two mascaras as it gives my eyes more dimension and also make my lashes look super long and curled. I particularly love the Falsies mascara as it has a slight curve in its wand which makes it very easy to reach the lashes near the inner corner of the eye. 
The Colossal felt tip liner is always a life saver. Winged eyes are perfect if you want to add some drama to your otherwise boring outfits and this Maybelline liner makes that job super easy. 

The next product that I am absolutely loving at the moment is Maybelline Lipgradation by colorsensational, The lipgradation lipsticks are a perfect combination of cream and matte. The formula is very smooth and it glides on the lips very easily. I bought the shade pink 2 which is the darkest pink in this range. It's a beautiful dark pink which I feel will suit all skin tones.The lipstick has a sponge eraser on the other side which can be used to blur the color to achieve an ombre look. Unfortunately the ombre didn't really work for me as I didn't quite like the entire effect but I would still highly recommend this lipstick because of its color and texture.

The final Maybelline product is the one that I saw everyone raving about and instantly decided to order it online. It is Maybelline The Nudes eyeshadow palette. I bought mine from the online cosmetic site, Nykaa. I love this product so much that I can go on and on about it. This palette has the perfect balance of matte and shimmery shades. You can create both a dramatic look or a soft everyday look using the same palette. It's amazing how you can just play with these shades. Get this palette and let the experimentation begin! The colors are moderately pigmented but are very buildable ,thus making it very easy to change a subtle day look to a bold party look. The palette can also be used for different purposes other than as an eye shadow. The champagne color on the top left can be used as a highlighter and the matte brown can be doubled up as a contour shade. Hence this palette is also travel friendly!

Here are two looks that I created using the products mentioned above and I just love how it turned out, I have blurred the lipstick in such a way so that it gives a slight pink tint to my lips. I did this only because I wanted the eyes to be the highlight!

I bought most of these products from Nykaa and I am amazed by their service. The products arrived before the expected delivery date which is always a good thing. They also have some discounts on the site most of the time which makes me very happy as I love sales!

I hope this post will help you shop the next time when you are wondering as to which product to buy. Do let us know if you are loving this section.
