Let me start by saying thanks for even bothering to read this post — and for having read my other 99 posts. I still remember how much time I had spent debating whether or not I should try my hand at blogging. Had I known it would quickly grow to become my favourite creative outlet, I would have begun some time ago. But nothing before its time, right? Do you have a favourite brand? Maybe you prefer high end brands, maybe you’re fiercely loyal to drugstore brands. Being unable to afford brands such as MAC and Iman, Maybelline was my ‘go to’, my ‘it’ brand for almost every item I would need. Maybelline is one of my favourite brands, and here’s why. My good memories are associated with Maybelline. The very first mascara I bought at age 11 (Unstoppable), was by them — so was the second tube I purchased (white primer at one end, regular volumising mascara at the other end). The first time I did — what was considered in my mind (at age 13) “makeup shopping”, I remember clearly purchasing a Maybelline eye shadow quad, a Shinylicious lip gloss (discontinued) and Define A Lash mascara — of course I bought Define A Line months after. My first liquid foundation? Maybelline Fit Me in 320. First and second tubes of red lipstick? Those were Maybelline also. In my teenage years, I read Seventeen magazine almost religiously and I would constantly see Maybelline advertisements. Initially I had been impressed by the fact that their products work for women of colour — that’s how I became hooked, and now, here we are. At my hundredth post. Do you have a favourite brand? Comment below and let me know! Thanks again for reading!
