I picked these Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquids up during that buy one get one free sale I talked about. There weren’t many shades to choose from so I grabbed the only 3 that were available. First up is Fuchsia Ecstacy.

When I got these I did something I never really do. I didn’t look up any reviews. If I had I would have known that these so-called mattes are anything but. I mean seriously there is NOTHING matte about these! I don’t get it. Maybe I’m missing something? Aside from that it’s actually not a bad lipstick. The applicator was extremely easy to work with. Application was easy even with such a bold shade. It applied nice and evenly and is very pigmented. It’s not transfer or smudge-proof. It also has a fairly strong perfume scent which I didn’t notice until after I had applied it. I didn’t notice it too much after about 1/2 hour or so. I really don’t care for perfume scent in my lip products or any products for that matter. But once it died down it was a surprisingly comfortable wear.

The shade is really pretty. Unfortunately it’s just not what I expected it to be. And because of that I probably won’t purchase any more of them. But I’ll definitely use up the ones I have because they really are pretty and surprisingly comfortable. You can see Fuchsia Ecstacy in action below!

See that shine? Definitely not matte! And yes, that’s dye on the side of my face. My husband dyes my hair and he likes to be very thorough. That includes dying half of my face and forehead. Hah!

Today I will be reviewing this box full of goodies from Maybelline! I’m still testing out the Facestudio Master Prime in 200 – Blur + Illuminate. I’m not sure how I feel about it just yet, but I will definitely report back on it after I’ve fully tested it out.

First up is the Facestudio Master Contour V-Shape Duo Sticks. Talk about a mouthful, huh? These nifty contour sticks come in 3 shades. 10 – Light, 15 – Medium, and 20 – Deep. On one side you’ve got contour and on the other side you’ve got highlight. It’s a great concept and I can definitely see these sticks coming in handy for travel, but not so much for every day use. If you apply it straight from the tube it’s almost impossible to apply just one side. The two sides eventually mix together. You might be able to get away with a little highlight being mixed with your contour, but you definitely don’t want that contour being mixed with your highlight.

Application issues aside, the product was really nice. They’re really pigmented and have a nice creamy texture. I used my BeautyBlender to blend it out and it blended beautifully! I used the light shade which made for a really nice subtle contour. It can easily be built up for a more sculpted look, but that’s not what I was going for.

Next up is the Facestudio Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter. It comes in 2 shades. 100 – Light Iridescent and 200 – Medium-Nude Glow. These highlighting sticks are also very pigmented and even creamier than the contour sticks. These glided onto my arm effortlessly! I decided to apply these with my fingers because I was afraid of going overboard. I just rubbed my finger across the top and then pat the product onto my cheekbone. I used the Light Iridescent shade and built it up quite a bit so that it would show in the photo. Seriously, look at that glow! I really love these Strobing Sticks and wish there were more shades available. Cause I would buy the heck out of them!

Overall I think the products are pretty great. If you do a lot of traveling the Facestudio Master Contour V-Shape Duo Sticks might be more convenient than packing up a palette. Just be careful when applying straight from the tube. And if you really want to glow, check out the Facestudio Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter in Light Iridescent. It’s beautiful!

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a chance to win the Derma E Purifying Collection! It’s a pretty great skin care line!
