I wanted to share some of my favorite drugstore products with you ladies. Who knows? Perhaps you'll try some of these out and really like them. So here goes...(listed in no particular order)
Rimmel The Max VolumeFlash MascaraThis has become my go to mascara for the past couple of months! I absolutely love it. The formula is a little on the "wet side" but overall, it makes my lashes look longer and fuller! I have never experienced any flaking, smudging, smearing, etc.
REVLON Colorstay Liquid Foundation
I know that everyone and their grandmother has raved about this foundation and it's because it really is a great foundation if you are looking for medium to full coverage. You can even mix it with moisturizer, Fix Plus, etc., for more sheer coverage if you wish. Some days I go for the full coverage look and other days I "sheer" it down a bit.
This line of foundation offers several different shades for many skintones and in addition, there are two formulas: One for Normal/Dry Skin and another for Oily/Combination Skin.
Two drawbacks about this foundation are that 1) It smells like paint. 2) There is no pump which results in pouring out more product than you really need.
Overall, I love this foundation and alternate between my MUFE MAC Velvet and MUFE HD Foundations.
These pigments are "Da Bomb"!! Am I dating myself when I say that? LOL! All joking aside, these are really great. I think they are super pigmented, come in a variety of colors and blend well. As with any mineral products, there is some fallout during application and some are more shimmery than others, but overall, for the price, you can't beat it!! Don't forget to use a sticky base so that the product has something to stick to!
I've only seen Jesse's Girl Cosmetics at my local Rite-Aid Pharmacy. If you don't have a Rite-Aid, you can also purchase these pigments as well as any other Jesse's Girl Cosmetics at------> Jesse's Girl Cosmetics.
L'oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Liner
This is my FAVE liquid liner hands down!! I have this in Black and Brown and use it every single day!
The color is very dark and lasts all day. The applicator is very flexible and allows you to draw either a very thin or very thick line. In my opinion, it's the most forgiving liquid liner and a definite must have for everyone, especially beginners.
Maybeline Define-A- Brow Pencil
The best brow pencil I have ever used! I have tried many high end brow pencils, and this one has worked the best for me.
The formula is just right. It's not so hard that you have to dig into your brows to fill them, but it's not so creamy that your brows just smear off by midday. I normally apply some clear brow gel after filling my brows just to keep them in place.
I've heard that this pencil is similar to the MAC brow pencils. I've never used the MAC brow pencils, so I can't confirm that is true. Just thought I would mention this.
All of the products above can be found just about anywhere (CVS, Walgreens, Target, KMart, Walmart, etc.) with the exception of the Jesse's Girl Pigments. Many times, stores offer great BOGO (Buy One Get One) deals and that is when I normally take advantage and stock up.
I'll be doing another Part to this post. I'm curious now! What are some of your favorite drugstore products?
