  1. I love Dream matte powder! I discovered it on youtube. After using a light shimmery primer, I apply it with a sponge and it gives me great coverage + stays matte all day!

  2. Hi Phyllis! My favorite maybelline product has got to be the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara. I’ve been using the original volum’ express for quite awhile and was ECSTATIC when they released the COLOSSSAL. It makes my short little lashes look elongated and volumized. Everyone always think that I’m wearing falsies when really, it’s just three coats of the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara. Thanks for the recommendation!!

  3. I love their double ended mascara! One end is the fiber, the other end is the mascara which makes my lashes look really long.

  4. I LOVE the Volume Express Mascara! I have pretty long eyelashes and this mascara makes them POP and appear full without looking cartoon-ishly long.

  5. I love the new maybelline color sensational lipstick because they are so pigmented and moisturizing. The color you see is the color you get.

  6. My current favorite is Colossal Volum Express! I just started using it not too long ago and I’m in love with it! It’s the best :)

  7. I love Maybelline Great Lash mascara because I have very sensitive eyes and this is the only mascara that I’ve tried that doesn’t make my eyes itchy and red! Thanks, Maybelline!

  8. i absolutely adore pulse perfection. it’s just like the lancome one but so much cheaper! who doesn’t like a bargain?!

  9. Maybelline Define-A-Lash mascara is my favorite Maybelline product. I have short lashes that barely show yet this mascara defines them and makes me feel better about my lashes. It also doesn’t smudge on me which is a big plus.

  10. One of my favorite Maybelline products has to be the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara. This mascara really fattens my lashes beyond control! They deliver a dark, shiny pigment a lengthening effect with a touch of retro glam.

  11. my favorite is great lash mascara because it was my first makeup product i bought at 13 years old. i still buy it today.

  12. My favorite product from Maybelline is also their most famous product, the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, Blackest Black. It’s my fav Maybelline product because it’s true to its name. It’s the BLACKEST mascara out there and it really brings out my lashes. It goes on smoothly and does not clump. I also love the iconic tube. :D

  13. I love their Colossal mascara! It is so good at volumizing lashes that even my short stubby ones get noticed after two coats. I like how it also doesn’t clump and is really black in color

  14. I love the Dream matte powder! It’s great at keeping my face looking fresh and matte for long periods of time. (:

  15. I LOVE Maybelline’s color sensational lipstick in Pink Please because it’s so moisturizing and it’s the perfect nude pink color for my lips!

  16. It would def. be “Volum’ Express Turbo Boost® Waterproof” mascara because the waterproof formula stays and doesn’t “melt” off and leave dust while I’m all sweaty and running at the gym. Even when I apply it in the morning (it doesn’t clump), it still makes my eyes look soft, dark and FRESH after 16 hours!! There’s also no mess when I try remove it–comes right off with the maybelline makeup remover. What more can a girl ask for?

  17. Maybelline Full and Soft mascara and the Dream Matte Powder. The mascara is great for a natural, but noticable look, and the Dream Matte Powder leaves my skin shine free!

  18. I love to where maybelline makeup eyeshadows in rain-bow colors to match my outfits, and i love to where maybelline lip stick the lip stick lasts for a long time more better than other brands. I love maybelline face powder, it feels light on your face and doesn’t break me out like lot’s of other name brand makeup does. I love there blush, because the blush gives a pretty glow in the sunlight on your face.
