Happy Friday! Only two and a half weeks till Christmas folks! Raise your hand if you’re all done with your shopping… (psst -I’m not raising my hand).
A few weeks ago I was sent three items from Maybelline’s new Total Temptation Collection. I posted about it over on my Instagram and shared my first impressions, but now that I’ve been using the products for several weeks, I wanted to share a more in depth review.
Let’s get right to the point- I’m a total fan of this new launch! While most of my makeup was packed away for the week, these products were a part of the few items that I put in my travel bag to use during our move. I’ve used and loved them a ton over the last two weeks.
First up is my fave out of the collection, the Total Temptation Eyeshadow + Highlight Palette. I love love love the shades, especially the peachy tones on the left! The pigmentation is great and they blend well too. The highlight shades are pretty too, but they do have tiny glitters in them. I would highly recommend this palette! It’s easily portable and you can do so many looks with it. My go-to is using the third shade down on the peach side in the crease and blending it out with a bit of the bottom brown shade in the outer corner. Also, the top two satin/shimmer shades work great for a halo-eye!
Next is the Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil. I’m not very familiar with a brow product like this- I usually use an angled eyebrow brush with brow wax & powder – but I am getting more comfortable using it. The color payoff is great and this product makes filling in your brows quick. I like how there is a spoolie on the end as well. One thing I wish is that the product came to a finer point. Practice makes perfect though and I think it’s a great drugstore option!
Finally, the Total Temptation Washable Volumizing Mascara is another win in my book. It is very dark and I enjoy the wand shape as well. Fun fact – the creamy formula is actually infused with coconut extract!! This mascara gives length and a pretty, softness to my lashes! This paired with my favorite eyelash primer makes the perfect combo.
I haven’t tried out many Maybelline products in awhile, so these exceeded my expectations. Plus, I think the packaging is super cute too! The products are available at a few places online right now, (here and here), but they will be in mass retailers come January so keep your eyes open for them! If nothing else, definitely grab the eyeshadow palette! You can thank me later. 😉
Have a great weekend everyone! xo.
