The Best Of Drugstore Makeup | The Best of Maybelline
Maybelline is an iconic drugstore makeup powerhouse. With collabs with Gigi Hadid and Puma, plus a long list of some of the most used- and most loved- drugstore makeup products, this brand won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
Being a brand this big means releasing tons of new makeup, which can seem a little overwhelming for the average consumer. And, like any other makeup brand out there, Maybelline isn’t exempt from releasing products that just aren’t good.
To make your makeup-buying experience a little bit easier, I put together this list of the best Maybelline products out there, so you can avoid the duds. These products are longstanding favorites of my own and other beauty lovers out there, and there’s sure to be a few on this list that you’ll be rushing out to add to your own collection!
Maybelline SuperStay Foundation
If you’re looking for a matte foundation that will not budge no matter what you’re doing throughout your day, while still being affordable, this is the one for you. The Maybelline SuperStay Foundation comes in 28 shades, with an alright selection, (could be better). It runs a little bit higher than most other drugstore foundations at $11.99, but a little goes a long way, being that it is full-coverage.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation
The Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation is a staple drugstore favorite among beauty gurus and your average makeup user alike. It comes in 40 different shades, which is a much better selection than the SuperStay foundation. It’s medium coverage that’s buildable and it’s perfect for those with both normal and oily skin types.
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
Probably one of the most well-known and most used drugstore concealers out there, the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer is a product that fully lives up to the hype surrounding it. It’s the go-to product for covering up even the worst dark under eye circles and the formula is easy to blend and work with.
Pro tip: don’t use the sponge applicator on the product itself. Instead, put some of the concealer onto the back of your hand and use a concealer brush or sponge to apply it to your face. This makes blending and getting into the hard to reach areas so much easier!
Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder
Not much better than a finishing powder that’s affordable and delivers. The Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder is perfect for setting your face after applying foundation, for the perfect effortlessly natural look.
This is one of my personal faves, and a product I keep stocked in my makeup collection!
Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter
Oh man, if you want a good glow, this is the product for you! It’s packed with pigment that blends easily and makes your skin look absolutely radiant. They have a variety of shades to choose from, so you’re covered whether you’re looking for something natural or something colorful and bold. The package size is generous, which means more product yay!
The City Mini Eyeshadow Palette
These mini eyeshadow palettes come with 6 corresponding shades each which makes coming up with a look super easy. They’re pigmented, blend well, and the colors are really gorgeous!
My personal favorite is the Downtown Sunrise palette, the pinky peach shade in it is so so so pretty!
Lash Sensational Mascara
Maybelline is well known for two things; their face products and their mascaras. The Lash Sensational Mascara doesn’t clump, it’s not watery, and it doesn’t crack. This mascara, and it’s fanning brush, is a long standing favorite among the beauty community, the perfect mascara for adding all the volume to your lashes!
Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks
A liquid lipstick that really lasts all day, the SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks stay true to their name. They don’t budge or transfer at all, no matter what. When first applied they feel a little tacky, but if you pat them down a little bit, they dry down to a perfect matte finish that’s not drying at all!
They can be a little hard to take off, so make sure you use a good makeup remover! Maybelline also sells a remover specifically for their SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks, that will make removing it at the end of the day a breeze!
