Currently Trying #5 | Maybelline Sponge, Fit Me Loose Face Powder and Vivid Lip Gloss in 'Charmer'

Currently Trying #5 | Maybelline Sponge, Fit Me Loose Face Powder and Vivid Lip Gloss in 'Charmer' | Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss in 'Charmer'  Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder  Face Studio Blender
Lately, I feel like many drugstore brands haven't been releasing new products. But Maybelline has been on a roll recently with new blushes, eyeshadow palettes, powders and more. I'll be sharing my thoughts on the Color Sensational Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss in 'Charmer'Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder, and the Face Studio Blender. These are all products I was super excited to try, and some of them I haven't even heard about on social media. 
I'm not sure what it is about this lip gloss, but I was super excited to try it! They had a nice selection of shades, and of course I went with the most pink/neutral shade. The formula of this lip gloss is very unique because it feels very thin but it applies fully opaque on the lips. The color 'Charmer' is a pink-nude, which is basically a MLBB (my lips but better) kind of shade. I found that this lasts well on the lips, and does need to be reapplied after eating. Overall, I love this lip gloss because it's opaque, comfortable on the lips, and looks glossy but doesn't feel sticky. I will definitely be trying other shades!
Out of all the Maybelline new releases, this one is definitely the one I was most excited for! I have been loving loose powders the past few months because it's something that has made it into my daily routine. It's a square clear box, with a black twist off cap.  I find that this powder is finely milled and doesn't look cakey on the skin. What I love most about this powder, compared to other loose powders, is that this comes in various shades since it's the Maybelline Fit Me line. Sometimes white powders can add a white cast with a flash, or wash out your skin tone. I love using this on a daily basis with a beauty blender to set my foundation, and as someone with oily skin, this keeps my matte all day! The packaging is simple but practical. 
Ever since I fell in love with the beauty blender, I have been on the hunt for more affordable beauty sponges. I saw this at Walmart, and for only $6, I had to give this a try. This is a black sponge with a round bottom, and the top has a curved point which I love to blend out under the eyes. I have really been loving this sponge for the unique shape at the top, and I find this is almost as soft as the beauty blender. It blends out my liquid foundation beautifully, and it also works to set my foundation with loose powder. Overall, I have really been enjoying this sponge, and for $6 I will definitely repurchase!

  1. The loose powder sounds divine! I have super oily skin and this seems perfect. I have quite dark skin and I do struggle sometimes with that white cast that loose powders can leave but I'm glad to have a new one to try xx Nikita

  8. I literally bought BOTH of these a week ago! While I love the colour charmer I find the gloss so sticky! As for the powder I really love it but got a shade too dark I think :( Great post!

  9. The fit me powder sounds really good! It's annoying when there's only a choice between a translucent shade and a light shade, so it's good they've released a few shades x

  10. Love their Dream Cushion foundation. It comes with a round, flat sponge. I threw that away and used my own sponge. It has a sheer to medium coverage. I'm going to try their loose powder next 😊

  13. I think I am going to try the sponge. Sephora has one I really like and it's five dollars on it when it's on sale but it hasn't been on sale for a while so I think I'll try the Maybelline one.

  14. Oh I love loose powders. They provide coverage without giving that cakey overly done finish that some compact powders can give. I've never tried this powder, but I'd give it a go and see. Thanks for this post!
