(Maybe) You Need a Makeup Overhaul- Maybelline

So... I have been in search for the best affordable foundation ever since I stopped selling Mary Kay...

I really loved the quality of the Hard Candy: Just Face It foundation.
It's primer, concealer, and foundation with a powder finish.
You can get it at Walmart for a little over $7 a pop.  But... the powder finish part I didn't find so powdery... I was still shiny and it wore off in some places.

During my last trip to Walmart I decided to check out my choices.
I spotted the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation which said it has medium to full coverage and I thought BAM!  I want to try that.  I have very spotty reddish skin on my neck and my cheeks are always red.  It was around $8.  Not much more than my Hard Candy foundation and appealing to me, so I took a shot.

VERDICT: I LOVE IT!  This stuff goes on super smooth like silk.  It's instantly matte on my skin and every flaw is GONE.  It wears all day and is still beautiful at the end.

So... as I considered the cosmetics in my cabinet... I realized I pretty much love Maybelline.

My other two faves and best ever finds:
Falsies Mascara (flared or original, love them both) - don't remember the price... under $7

Dream Bouncy Blush (it's just fun to put on, it's all bouncy... seriously) pricier... like $7

So... Maybe it is Maybelline :P
