Hi there.

I'm Deedi. When I find or learn things that make my life better, I share them. I also read books—literally all the time, whenever I can—and tell people what I thought.

Let's be friends!

This is the World's Best Lipstick and Eyebrow Makeup

This is the World's Best Lipstick and Eyebrow Makeup

Long-lasting lipstick with actual, literal all-day wear

Ask any woman who enjoys wearing makeup, and she'll say the same thing: the hunt for lipstick that actually stays on all day is never-ending. The trips to the restroom to refresh her lipstick are guaranteed. My experiences were no different.

I was also on the hunt for a good eyebrow filler. I had never bothered doing anything with my eyebrows before because I touch them all day long—when I'm thinking, when I'm nervous, when I'm concentrating on what someone's saying.

Enter Influenster* for the lipstick and good ol' Instagram ads for the eyebrow filler. These two products are absolutely amazing. And they're by the same company. And you can buy them at, like, Target.


Before and After Photo Test

Below is a photo of me wearing both products on my morning commute and then again on my evening commute.

The lighting is a little different in these two photos, but both products stayed all day! My eyebrows hadn't moved a smudge. And forward from the spot where my lips touch each other when my face is resting, the lipstick was intact. I had consumed peanut butter toast, 64 oz of water, a tuna fish sandwich, and handfuls of popcorn that day, and I hadn't touched my lipstick up once.

What are these magical products, you ask?

 

Lipstick: Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink

I will never buy another type of lipstick in my life. I have this product in 3 different colors, and I love them all. I'm telling you, this lipstick lasts so well that I regularly leave the tube at home. Then I have to scrub it off with makeup remover at night! Have you ever heard of such a thing? They even make an entire product just to help you remove it.

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink lipstick is $6.99 on Amazon, and the Maybelline SuperStay Eraser Lip Color Remover is $5.99 on Amazon.

 

Eyebrow: Maybelline TattooStudio Waterproof Eyebrow Gel

This liquid eyebrow color boasts that it can last up to two days. I usually take it off to sleep, so I haven't put it to a two-day test, but it does at least give me confidence that the product will last all day. And it does! It comes with a second little wand to blend the gel after you put it on. Then you let it dry for one minute, and after that, it doesn't move at all. You can use just a little for a subtle amount of fill or layer it more heavily for a darker look.

Maybelline TattooStudio Waterproof Eyebrow Gel is $9.98 on Amazon. If you're looking for it in the store, it might be helpful to note that it comes in a black box.


Who would have thought that Maybelline would beat out all the other, more expensive lipsticks I've tried? whatever secret long-lasting formula they're using, it clearly works. 

Have you tried these products? Or do you have some that you love? Let me know in the comments!

 

*Note: I received my first tube of Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink lipstick in an Influenster VoxBox. This was provided to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
