Drugstore Beauty Haul Reviews: L'Oreal & Maybelline

As you may have seen on Snapchat, I went on a beauty haul binger earlier this month. I've slowly been testing and trying these products. Now I'm here to report back my thoughts:
Top: In the morning // Bottom: At the end of the day. Also wore the shadow primer.

Maybelline Lash Sensational® Luscious Waterproof Mascara $8.99 - I haven't had much luck with this mascara. You may recall but I also gave it a second chance. I bought a new one yet I still had flaking issues like I previously experienced with the original version. It really dried up by the end of the day. I will not be repurchasing and will avoid any future LashSensational mascaras.
See above for staying power

Maybelline Master Prime™ Long-Lasting Shadow Base in Prime + Illuminate $9.99 - I liked the light champagne color of this primer and used it alone as well as with Julep's shadow stick. I also saw no success with this product. It didn't last throughout the day. I'll keep using it because I like the color but I will not repurchase.

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color in Berry Boost $7.99 - I've been on a liquid lipstick kick and all the beauty bloggers were raving about this. It's more on the lip stain side rather than lipstick (like Julep's). I wore it one day with a scarf and the scarf rubbed on my lips and it smeared all over my mouth - MY NIGHTMARE! Thankfully a lady told me lol but definitely be warned that this doesn't dry up quickly so maybe don't wear with a scarf. It was a nice color but I probably will not repurchase.

P.S. Wearing all the products in the photo

Maybelline Dream Velvet™ Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation in Warm Porcelain $10.99 - I loved the Dream Mousse tin foundation so was intrigued to try this foundation. It didn't apply well with my beautyblender, I think because it's a little thicker (or "moussier"). It did give a nice finish that looked nice in photos. It also didn't last all day but that could be on the primer spray. It wasn't my favorite but I'll finish the bottle.

L'Oreal Infallible® Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray $16.99 - Kim is on a spray frenzy. I fell in love with Urban Decay's makeup setting spray but I'm open to trying a drugstore version. Unfortunately, I saw no success with this bottle. It's a decent size bottle (3.4 fl oz) and oil-free but I didn't see any help in making my makeup last. I tried with different foundations, etc but no luck.

Have you tried these products? What were your thoughts?
