Hola mis mores!!!! Thank you for spending some of your Wednesday Conmigo Today!!! I am super excited this week as it is my Birthday week! Happy Birthday to me!!!! As well as, I was able to review 3 of Maybelline’s new FaceStudio Master Fix Products:  contour palette, setting spray and setting powder! So let’s dig in on how these products faired up!

Ready… set … spray…. I normally use another setting spray that agrees with my skin (I have very oily skin) so I was already hesitant using the spray.  I used it as a prep and  I sprayed before I applied  my make-up and sprayed as a setter after I was done. I did not notice whether the spray held my makeup intact at all. To me I  didn’t feel that it kept my make up from transferring or wearing off all day. Also the spray had an odor that I didn’t find too pleasing. I wont  be re-purchasing.  (The spray retails for $12.99)

Get Baked… with setting powder…. I liked the setting powder from Maybelline, it’s nicely milled. I set my beauty blender with setting spray and then applied the setting powder on parts of my face that gets the oiliest (My T- zone area) and let the powder bake into my skin. I like the setting powder and felt it held up to my more expensive setting powder from Tarte and Bare Minerals. I would re-purchase. (It retails for $9.99)

Have you lost weight? No girl I learned how to contour! If you are a make- up junkie or novice you have heard of this contour thing. Contour is the ability to define features of the face with either bronzer’s or creams for sharp features, like hallowed cheeks or fierce highlights. This palette is a 3 step easy process with a bronzer, blush, and highlighter in the kit. It has a face chart in the back that shows the user where to apply (which I love). What I don’t love is the lack of color…. The 2 options are light to medium and medium to deep; which leaves a lot of warmer shade tones out. This really annoys me when companies completely shut out an entire demographic, I hope they expand. I also did not like blush in the palette I found it was not pigmented enough and had to pair it with another blush to give my cheeks the pop I needed. (This could also be a me thing … I like my cheeks to be accented Lol) (Retails for $12.99)

Over all out of the 3 products I used I really liked only 2 and a  half of them, I would re-purchase the setting powder and the contour palette. And because it’s my birthday week I will be choosing 2 winners this week as always follow @Cultur3chic and my page @beeradiantbeauty if you haven’t already , Tag us and @maybelline and use the following hashtags #wcw (Wednesday Con Wilma), #chicface #hbdwilma to enter to win this week.
