Maybelline And Air Canada Rouge Collaboration! Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara Review Too!

So I don’t know if you’ve heard, but come July 1st, the Air Canada Rouge Flight Attendants are getting a makeover! New uniforms and scarves, plus some snazzy shoes from the iconic Canadian Shoe designer John Fluevog. The new uniform is classy and stylish and I love it!

But the BEST part of their makeover is that Maybelline Canada and lead makeup artist Grace Lee created a clean and classic makeup look for the flight attendants too, providing them with custom beauty, training, and makeup-styling kits.

A bold, bright lip with a classic subtle cat-eye is on trend, and super wearable-even for us that are on the ground every day! I thought it would be really fun to recreate the gorgeous look that Grace Lee created for the Air Canada Rouge Flight Attendants!

It’s been a long time since I’ve tried a Maybelline Eyeshadow Quad, but you know it wasn’t half bad actually! Sure, there’s some fall out, but it wasn’t something to get crazed about. They blend decently and have nice pigmentation too. The Maybelline Bouncy Blush in Coffee Cake is GREAT! I’ve never tried them before either actually, and the texture is pretty cool-squishy and soft, but not wet at all. I really like it a lot! It’s not crazy pigmented which is how I like my cream blushes as you know, and it works really well with a brush too. Win!

Here’s the eye look:

Oh, I guess I should mention the NEWEST Maybelline product that was used to create this smoky eye look for the girls, the Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara in Blackest Black:

Remember when I tried the Maybelline Fasies Mascara not too long ago and was kind of meh about it? THIS ONE IS SO MUCH BETTER.

As you can see, one end of the Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara has a big, bristley wand for your upper lashes and a skinny long wand for your bottom lashes. It’s kind of GENIUS actually. The formula is just wet enough for me, meaning I can keep building and building up mascara to get the intensity I like. The bottom lash wand is great for getting every last lash you have there and it NEVER globs mascara under your eyes ruining your concealer. Also, I kind of like using that skinny wand on my upper lashes AFTER using the other wand to kind of clean out any clumps if there are any. This is a great drugstore mascara!

The Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Vivid Rose BLEW ME AWAY. Seriously, this is one of the most AMAZING drugstore lipsticks I’ve ever tried and I want them ALL now.

The top picture was taken in natural light, and the bottom one is indoors with flash. It’s a bright, hot rosy pink and so comfortable to wear and lasts FOREVER. I easily get 5 hours of wear out of it, and that’s even with sipping on a water bottle every so often. I love it! I’ll betting more of Color Sensational Vivids for sure!

Whaddaya think? Could I pass for an Air Canada Rouge Flight Attendant? I hope so! I love the promo pic of the models and I think they look gorgeous, but I would have made the close-up look more like THIS:

See if I was REALLY a flight attendant, this would be the face you’d see most of the time on me. You know, it’s that “Sir, that carry-on is NOT going to fit above your seat no matter HOW HARD you try to stuff it in there” look. Yeah, I wouldn’t last 5 minutes on the job haha! I have the upmost respect for what flight attendants do and the stuff they have to put up with! Kudos to you ALL!

You can get all of these great Maybelline products at drugstores everywhere and recreate the look too!

Could you be a fight attendant? 

*products provided by PR, thoughts, praises and kudos to flight attendants are my own thank you very much!

    Gorgeous! I love the look on you. I’m flying Air Canada soon, so I can’t wait to see the new uniforms.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! This is for Air Canada Rouge though-so i you’re flying on one of their planes, then you’ll see it!

  • beautiful! This look seems like it could suit all sorts of people (:

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I agree! It’s simple and pretty!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! It’s really nice! Have you tried it yet?

  • Happy Chinadoll

    Wow to the lip stick. Looks good. I like the scarf on their new uniform too 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! It’s really bright the lipstick, but oh so good!

  • Wow! That lipstick is beautiful. I love the look of the mascara too. No way do I have the tolerance or patience to be a flight attendant. I’d snap and yell at passengers, I’m sure.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      It’s SO GOOD. You need to try one.
      And me too. I just can’t do it!

  • I’m more fond of the look you created, something about the other image seems a bit dated, which I guess is retro. Anyhoo that lipstick looks gorgeous on you, it really bring out your beautiful blues!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Haha thanks Taylor! 🙂

  • HAHAHA I love you Tracy! 😀 I have the utmost respect for flight attendants too. People are horrible on planes for some reason. It must be cabin fever.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Paris haha! Like I said to Larie, People catch THE STOOPID when they fly. I could never put up with it!

  • Liz

    Holy cow, your lashes after mascara!

    I love those lipsticks too but I’m a little afraid of the bright orange colour I picked up, lol. And the bouncy blushes look so cute. 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Liz! 🙂 I was afraid of how bright this was too, but got over it pretty fast because DANG is it ever great!

  • HOLY COW THAT MASCARA. Please tell me it’s paraben-free. I effing need a new mascara, Tracy. I want to love it. I really do!

    LOL at flight attendant Tracy. I’d be the same way. “Please, make your kid stop pressing the flight attendant button, or I will hit the eject button. What, you don’t think we have one? Try me.”

    And that is why I am a scientist, LOL.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      AHAHAHA you an me both HAHAHA. People catch the STOOPID when they fly I swear. I could never do their job!
      And DANG it I’m sorry I can’t find the package-TRACY FAIL. I’m going out tomorrow so I’ll look at the store for you!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Thanks Shivani! I’ll be going to LD then tomorrow for sure! I need them all I think-SO GOOD! A bit like the MAC ones, but lighter feeling on the lips I think!

  • Lily

    I could never be a flight attendant. I get motion sickness quite easily so I hate flying >_< I can just imagine you telling off those stoooopids though. HAHAHAHA! It would be epic funny.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I get sick too Lily! I have to use meds to make sure I don’t get sick, so yeah- that’s another reason I couldn’t do it. Man, I’d be SO hilarious. I’d be swearing at people probably HAHAHA!

  • Guest

    Very pretty! I am going to have to get the Vivid Rose lipstick. I have been test-driving the

    • Elizabeth

      Oops…that was me. Tried to delete it, but I guess it didn’t work. Sorry!! 🙁

  • Elizabeth

    Very pretty! Am going to have to get the Vivid Rose lipstick. I have been test-driving this mascara, too, for a couple of weeks, and I agree 100%. VERY impressive (and I have not really loved Maybelline mascaras in the past) and I LOVE the tiny little lower lash brush for sort of “combing” my upper lashes and also getting in the inner and outer corners. ps – You could definitely be Air Canada’s new spokesmodel! (but you have to keep writing this fabulous blog, too!:)

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha thanks Elizabeth! That’s so sweet of you!

  • Toya

    LOL love the ‘flight attendant’ face Tracy haha. It’s great that their getting a snazzy upgrade! You know, I can’t take your mascara reviews much to heart though – your lashes are like EFFING AMAZING so it’s not really a great testament for us regular folk you know! Sorry 😉

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Au contrare my love! If a mascara DOESN’T work well on me you know it’s the shitz haha! Plus, I still have other problems like flaking, smearing, etc. so I am a good one to test them out-at least in my logic LOL.
