Maybelline Makeup Compared to Other Brands….

MakeupI think the first time I used makeup, I went to the Lancome makeup counter at Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s and had a makeover. I  walked away spending $300 on makeup and skin care and I was set for a while.

At that time, everyone used Lancome.  After that, I tried Clinique, Elizabeth ArdenEstee Lauder and ChanelChanel became my favorite makeup of choice for many years after that.  But I was spending a fortune and decided to keep trying out these upscale brands and wondering if they really were any different than the brands you buy in a supermarket or drug store.

I went  with my daughter to the Lucky Shops event  in the beginning of November.  They had a ton of upscale brands there like Rebecca Minkoff, Rebecca Taylor, Milly’s and more.  They also had a Maybelline booth where makeup artists were doing mini makeovers.

I stood on line.  I asked one of the women if we could buy makeup and she said they were giving out coupons but they were not selling anything. As I got closer to the front of the line, I was asked if I wanted to sit with the makeup expert to find out my “perfect fit” or if I wanted to have a makeup artist give me a makeover.

I had no idea who this “expert” was so, I decided to let one of the artists on hand do my makeup.  After matching my skin tone with foundation, she put it on my whole face with a sponge.  It smelled a little funky but I guessed that all foundation has some sort of scent to them.

“Since your eyes are greenish brown, I want to use green eye shadow, okay?” she said.

I asked her while I was sitting there, “do you think that there is a difference between expensive and cheap makeup?”

She answered with an affirmative, “NO! Maybelline is the best brand out there and you don’t have to spend a fortune to look like a million dollars.”

So there you have it.  The makeup artist claims that Maybelline is the best but don’t you think she may be a little biased, as the company hired her for the show?

    Definitely biased, but no harm done. I use a combination of Bobby Brown, Bare Escentuals, Mary Kay, Almay and Maybelline – I’m all over the place when it comes to makeup!
