THE BEST OF DRUGSTORE MAKEUP RIGHT NOW
Today’s highly requested roundup required quite some product testing! I must say I’ve never been a drugstore beauty girl – Always have had better luck with high end products. After years of reviewing, I had come to the conclusion that you get what you pay for when it comes to cosmetics. That being said, affordable makeup has had a total transformation over the past year or so. I’m very excited to share items that I truly LOVE!
Maybelline 24 HR Wear Foundation: I really, really like this formulation! It can perform against my high-end, long wearing products any day! It does not budge!
Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define: Can’t believe that I will say it’s comparable to my Tarte Tape Shape – Definitely less coverage but VERY creamy. Gives me the bright under-eye that I crave. Set it with powder and lasts ALL day!
Maybelline FitMe Concealer: Flawless, natural coverage – Great for everyday wear!
L’Oreal Foundation Blender: EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Blends like a dream. I love that it is very easy to clean as well!
Coty Airspun Translucent Loose Powder: As if I needed another powder… Light, velvety soft – Great for setting concealer, baking, and cleaning up up contour!
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer: Provides the perfect sun-kissed, lit-from-within summer glow. Finely milled and creamy – Will not become muddy. Smells like a tropical vacation!
Physicians Formula Butter Blush: Beautiful pinch of color – Blends like a dream. All the same reasons as the above bronzer!
Flower Beauty Blush: Gorgeous, radiant glow – Adore EVERY shade! Excellent pigmentation!
L’Oreal Double Extend Mascara: The white primer is incredible! It significantly builds and lengthens lashes! I don’t care for the mascara side as much.
Essence Lash Princess Mascara: Extremely pigmented / Dark Black – Love the thick consistency!
KISS Blowout Lashes: This new style literally blows me away! Totally mimics my expensive pairs! Adore the ‘Pixie’ – Wispy, Fluffy, Voluminous!
DUO Eyelash Glue: Always a staple. Typically use the black glue / brush applicator.
NYX Lingerie Matte Liquid Lipsticks: Creamy & long lasting – Beautiful, weightless nude shades!
NXY Lip Liner: Great alternative to designer options – Large color section and staying power.
Wet & Wild MegaGlo Highlighters: Very fine shimmer – Excellent pigmentation!! Apply to cheekbones, brow bone, and cupid’s bow with a damp brush and the results are blinding!
ColourPop EyeShadow: Never disappoints – The metallics are STUNNING! A total steal! No creasing, fading, or fallout.
BH Cosmetice EyeShadow & Highlighter Palette: Buttery, blendable formula! Vibrant, long wearing shades. Perfect for the glam girl on the go!
Pixie Dewy Fixing Mist: I’m really picky with my setting sprays. Cutest packaging – Locks it ALL in!
