One of the biggest trends in beauty over the last while, aside from contouring of course, is brows. One of the most exciting part about the huge focus on brows is the volume of brow products being released in the market. We went from having a relatively small range of products to choose from, and for some of us a rather difficult time sourcing out good colour matches, to having a vast variety of brow products and shades available from so many beauty brands including high end and drugstore. Maybelline New York’s recent addition

Today the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Team is sharing our picks for Top 10 Beauty Products under $10. There are so many amazing products available out there that are priced under $10 and perform as well as, or even better than, their higher priced competitors. Here are some of my current favourites.
L'Oreal Le Matte Lipstick ($9.99 CAD) - These intensely pigmented twist up lipstick sticks have a liquid velvet complex for a unique soft touch sensation on the lips that never feels dry. Available in 5 shades. Shown
Maybelline is relaunching their Maybelline The Creamy Mattes Lipsticks ($9.99 CAD ea) in a limited edition collection of 8 shades. These lipsticks feel light, creamy, and non-drying yet offer the fully opaque colour of a matte lipstick. I found the lighter, brighter shades to have a bit more matte finish. The deeper shades I found to have a subtle sheen to them. These are stunning colours. Nicely done Maybelline! You won't get the full day wear you can get from dryer matte lipstick formulas, but you will still get an impressive
Maybelline is one of my go to brands when it comes to drugstore mascaras and their newest release has really knocked it out of the park for me. I am absolutely in love with the new Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara ($12.99 CAD). The packaging for this mascara is really fun. It has a shiny red cap, black middle, and metallic hot pink base. The design makes you think it's a dual ended product but it's not. The brush is really, really unique. I can't say I've ever seen a brush anything like this one before. Let's
Today the Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday Team is sharing our picks for Top 10 Lipsticks for Fall. I love fall because I can break out all my beautiful plums and berries.

You can click through to the original reviews for more info and lip swatches. In no particular order: Maybelline COLORblur Lipstick in Plum Please Dior Rouge Dior

This week the Makeup Wars members are sharing our favourite drugstore beauty brands. When we decided on this topic it took me no time at all to decide on Maybelline New York as my pick for best drugstore brand. I am not a big drugstore makeup user. I love my luxury makeup. But Maybelline is a brand that not only has many products I love and purchase/repurchase, but they also offer those great products across the board in every cosmetic category. I know I could easily throw a look together using all Maybelline products that I will
If you are looking for lashes that make an impact then you may want to check out the new Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara ($9.49 CAD). This new mascara has a breakthrough open fan brush with 10 layers of bristles in 6 different lengths. This allows it to grab and coat every lash for a dramatic effect. The formula uses very low levels of wax for a liquid texture that is intensely black. The formula is supposed to fan out lashes without clumps but personally I found the formula to apply with some clumping and it tended to
Today the Beauty Blogger Top Ten team is sharing our Top 10 Products for Brows. Recent years have brought some truly innovative and exceptional brow products to the market. We are no longer forced to suffer with the old hard waxy brow pencils of the past. Here are 10 brow products that I've tried and loved. In no particular order: MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Brow ($20 US) - I love Aqua Brow! This stuff is not going anywhere! If you struggle with your brows fading you must give it a try. Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Wiz ($21
The bold brow trend is here full force and thankfully doesn't seem to be losing any steam. One of the best brow innovations to help you achieve a well defined and groomed brow is brow gel. Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara ($11.99 CAD) makes accessing a high quality brow gel both accessible and affordable. The Brow Drama formula is a tinted (and now clear) gel mousse that gives light even coverage with no clumps. I was really impressed with how little product is applied (this is a huge plus in my books).

I love when Maybelline comes out with these ColorSensational Lipstick Collections with the coordinating translucent packaging. It just always looks so pretty! The latest collection, Maybelline ColorSensational Rebel Bloom, is all about pastels. When I think Spring I think pastels and Maybelline's mission with Rebel Bloom is to revolutionize pastel lipsticks by setting aside the washed out, pale, dull pastel lippies of the past and bringing life and brightness to pastels with their Color Bloom Technology. The shades have a white
After the success of the Maybelline New York Eye Studio The Nudes Palette Maybelline has released a new Eye Studio eyeshadow compilation; the Maybelline The Smokes Palette ($13.99 CAD). Something a little more dramatic to add to your makeup wardrobe. There is a fabulous variety of shades and finishes in this palette. Rather than being all dramatic smokey shades this palette offers everything you need for a complete look from a softly smokey contoured look to a full on smokey eye. Mattes, shimmers, and metallic shades ranging
Today I am excited to share with you my Khaki Eyeshadow Collection. I was tempted to do bronze, and still will at a later date, but opted instead for one of my favourite fall colours; Khaki. Khaki is described as a dull brownish-yellow but it is much more beautiful than it's description. Shades range from khaki browns, to khaki greens, and even khaki greys. I love the shades because they are a great twist on a neutral, looks great with every eye colour, and you can create such beautiful and interesting smoky eye looks with them.
