If you’re planning to put yourself on a “no buy” post-holidays, hang on. Maybelline New York has your back. The newly released Total Temptation Collection has just what you need for a glowing makeup look, plus keeps you on budget. Let’s take a closer look…

This new collection from Maybelline is part of a recent huge launch of products. I love the packaging of this collection–more pink! What’s not to love about that? It’s definitely Insta-friendly, and better yet, the products perform, too.

The Maybelline New York Total Temptation Collection includes:


The Total Temptation Eyeshadow + Highlight Palette features 8 eyeshadows plus 2 highlighters. It has a warm and cool side, which I really like. The tablets are also multi-dimensional. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of color payoff with this palette, and the highlighters are also especially nice. I saw the reviews on ULTA and I’m a little confused, because I didn’t have issues with fallout or glitter. In the sample I received, the shadows are creamy with nice pigmentation and color payoff. The palette has a light coconut scent.

I really like Maybelline mascaras, and the Total Temptation Mascara is another winner in my book. I like that the brush delivers volume and length, without clumping or a mess. The brush isn’t too big, which makes it easier to work with (I mean some brushes now are almost weapons!). Applying a couple of coats leads to a nice, full lash look. There is a light coconut scent to the mascara and it’s available in three shade choices. I would rebuy this mascara.

If you’re looking to up your brow game, there are four Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencils available (Blonde, Soft Brown, Medium Brown, Deep Brown). This is a swivel up mechanical pencil, with angled teardrop-shaped tip for precise definition, plus a spoolie at the other end for blending.  It’s easy to do feathery strokes with this pencil, it’s easy to blend and lasts all day. Honestly, at $7.99, I don’t think I’ve found a better eyebrow pencil!

The Maybelline New York Total Temptation Collection is available now at retailers including Amazon, and ULTA Beauty. Is this a collection you plan to check out?
