Drugstore Makeup Favorites


Hey everybody! It's been a while hasn't it? This past week I got sick...in the middle of summer. I rarely get sick in the winter like most people do, but pretty much every summer I come down with something It's definitely not the best way to enjoy summer days. I'm all better now though and back to blogging!

  Today I thought I'd share a few of my makeup favorites. Now I'm not really one that wears a lot of makeup, but when I do I tend to stick to products that give a very natural look and don't feel like I'm wearing a lot on my skin. So here are 8 of my all time favorite products that I just can't live without.
1. elf Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder
For this product I use the shade St. Lucia. One of the biggest things I love about this product is how it is two-in-one. I love the warmth the bronzer adds to my skin, especially during the summer time since I don't tan very easily. The blush adds just the right amount of color to my cheeks and is my go-to year round. The shades are very pigmented so a little goes a long way. There are 4 color options for this product as well. Plus for only $3 this product is a steal. 

2. Revlon Colorstay 24hr Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin
 I discovered this product about 3 years ago when I was on the hunt for a full coverage foundation and haven't found anything better yet. It's medium to full coverage and the coverage is definitely build-able. It lasts me all day long as well which I love.They have such a wide variety of shades too, as well as a combination/dry skin formula.

3. L'oreal Voluminous Million Lashes
I am in love with this mascara. It makes my lashes look crazy long without feeling heavy or clumpy.It separates your lashes and really fans them out. I use the color blackest black and they have 3 other colors as well. 

4. Elf Eyelash Curler
This one might be a little boring, but I use to never curl my lashes. Once I did though I never wanted to go back. It just opens your eyes up and makes you look more awake. This one was only $1 too and works great.

5. Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Sorbet
This lip butter goes on smooth and adds the perfect pop of color. The shade I use(sorbet) is a hot pink, but it doesn't look like too much on my lips. It has a bit of a gloss to it as well which I like. This product is well pigmented, but buildable as well. You can add just a touch for a soft look or go all out for a bold lip. They have so many other shades as well that all look amazing on.

6. Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue in Coral Crave
This is my go to lip product. It's a medicated chap stick that adds just a slight tint of color I love it! They have many different colors including a clear.

7.Wet-n-Wild  Eyeshadow Trio in Walking on Eggshells
These eye shadow colors are perfect for a flirty, natural look. It comes with three colors, as you can see in the photo above. A white creamy shade, a chocolate brown, and a rosy pink. All three colors have a lot of pigment to them which I was surprised at for the price. They just add a nice color on your eyes without being overpowering. 

8. Simple Ultra-Light Gel Moisturizer
This moisturizer is perfect for people with oily skin. It's a gel so it doesn't feel heavy on your skin or give the greasy feeling you can get with other moisturizers. It blends in really nicely and feels so soft. It has no harsh chemicals, perfumes or dyes as well so it's great for sensitive skin.

What are some of your favorite products? I'm always on the search for something new and I'd love to know. I hope you guys have a fantastic day and I'll see you in the next post.
