Top 5 Favorite Drugstore Makeup Products

Hey guys! Welcome back to our blog. I’ve done this post before, so consider this a part 2. I’m here to share 5 more makeup products from the drugstore that I absolutely love. Let’s  jump into it.

1. NYX Control Freak brow gel

I’ve already used up a tube of this and am on my second one. This is a great medium hold brow gel that keeps my brows in place all day, and really sets the color in place too. I can always trust that my brows will look just as good at the end of the day as they do when I first apply my makeup, and it is so cheap, I love it.

2. Milani Retouch and Erase Concealer

This concealer has been my go-to! It was featured in my favorites last month, and I almost use it everyday. It is so hard to find a concealer that doesn’t crease on me, but this one doesn’t crease and it gives good coverage, and it is lightweight. I prefer this over my Urban Decay Naked concealer!

3. NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe

This brow pencil is my absolute favorite! It is so easy to work with, I’m sure you guys have heard me talk about it before, I just love it. It has the best consistency and the best color selection. I always find that my brows come out well when I use this pencil and I highly recommend it.

4. LA colors High Shine Shea Butter lip gloss

This clear gloss goes over all my liquid lipsticks, I also wear it all the time by itself for my everyday look. It is so moisturizing and it is also so cheap that I cannot believe how amazing it is. I use this sometimes at night just as a lip balm and I have already repurchased it.

5. NYX pigment primer

This is the best pigment primer I’ve ever found, it also works great just as a regular eyeshadow primer since it goes on so smooth. I always use this when I wear glitter since it makes my shadows look so foiled and it prevents fallout.

That was it for my top 5 drugstore products at the moment. What have you been loving from the drugstore, let me know in the comments below!

Airspun loose face powder review

Hello my lovlies! Im back with another beauty blog…duh! It would be a little weird if i was doing a video game review or something…

Today i will be review Airspun loose face powder. I’ve heard so much about this face powder that i’ve wanted to try it out for so long. The only issue i had was no matter where i looked, i couldnt find this powder anywhere. I searched high and low in every drug store with no luck. Next i searched Target and found nothing there.

Then the day came, the faitful day where i would find the much awaited Airspun loose face powder. I had to get some shots for college at my local walgreens, now here is a little fact about me…your girl HATES shots. The mere thought of getting a shot, or being around a needle terrifies me so bad. Usually i have my mom come with me, and yes im a nineteen girl and i still need my mom to come with me when i get shots. BUT THIS TIME SHE SAID SHE WOULDNT COME WITH ME…brat…Just kidding i love my mom and i understood how i needed to grow up. ANYWAY, before getting the shots, to relieve some anxiety, i decided to walk around the store. And somehow i came upon the cosmetic section…its really funny how thats the first thing i came across. Being the beauty holic i am, i looked around the beauty section, and then i found it, the loose powder that i have been trying to find for years. It was $9 and SUCH A STEAL.

Airspun Loose Face Powder:

Details:

  • Round continer
  • Holes to help filter out powder
  • Orange lip with some time of flower (?) on it
  • Little puff applicator

Pros:

  • Smells AMAZING, very soft sent, like baby powder
  • Very easy application, if you apply with a beauty blender you wont make a big mess
  • Long lasting
  • gives finished look

Cons:

none

All in all i give this product a 10/10 because i really feel this product gives your concealor and under eye area a creasless look, which im totally for. I also am a huge fan of the smell. For some weird reason it reminds me of a new born baby, which i totally 100% love. Im a huge fan of vintage things, and i guess you could consider this product vintage because it was made in 1935. I know i know the product that im using wasnt made in 1935, but the company was, which i really find interesting, because with other vintage companies like Revlon, Maybelline, and L’Oreal they are well known. Most people have heard of these brands, and its because of how well known their brands are that their name has survived so long, but the fact that this brand isnt very well known, and it is still surviving is truly amazing to me.

Thats it for todays blog!

If you a havent, comment down below if you love that new born baby smell!

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Hello my lovlies! im here with another beauty blog….duh!

Today i will be reviewing Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara. I dont know why i feel like mascara is like a necessity in my daily life because i have extremly long eyelashes. No joke im pretty sure im related to a camel. Im also an extremely emotional person, so having water proof mascara is a MUST in my book. One of my biggest peeves about mascara is when you think its waterproof and its NOT! And then being the emotional person you are, cry and have it ruin the makeup that you spent hours on, a face full of like $80 bucks washed away by your tears, which makes you cry even more. Another peeve of mine is clumby mascara. So while looking for a mascara those are the two things i look for, waterproof-ness and no clumbing.

The previous mascara i was using was an LA Color mascara that i think was like a dollar or two ( you get what you pay for). I did not like that mascara what so ever. It wasnt waterproof..it wasnt even air proof, the slightest bit of movment would smudge the mascara, and by the end of the day i looked like a crazy alcoholic on crack cocaine. Another thing i didnt like about my old mascara was it was ALL clumb. On top of looking like an alcoholic, i also looked like a spider began living on my eyes. Needless to say, i was in dire need of a new mascara.

My mother uses Maybelline Great Lash Mascara all the time, and i always admire how it looks on her, so i decided why not give it a try?

So that i did!

Great Lash Mascara:

Description:

  • Pink tube
  • Green cap
  • Spiral brush
  • Normal sized

Pros:

  • Thin product
  • Waterproof
  • No clumbs
  • Long Lasting
  • natural look

Cons:

  • So thin that you need to apply multiple layers
  • Smudges slightly

All in all i give this product a 9/10 because i truly didnt find any problems with this product. My biggest problem was that it didnt apply very much product, so when wanting a more dramatic look youll have to apply two or three layers. But if you want a natural everyday look ( which i tend to lean toward) this product is perfect. I understand why my mom repurchases this product so much.

Thats it for todays blog!

Beauty Bargain of the Month: September

Hello guys! I am extremely excited for this post because I have found an amazing concealer that was $3.99 at Marshalls. This is a cruelty free dupe for my Rimmel Match Perfection, so I’m glad to have found a replacement.

This product is from DirtyWorks and it is a color corrector and concealer for undereye circles!

 

 


Overview:

  • Price: Super cheap at marshalls, full price was $15
  • 4.5g of product in each pan
  • cruelty free!
  • one concealer and one peach toned color corrector

Promise:

  • Instantly camouflage those dark circles and imperfections with this lightweight concealer.
  • Contains soothing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to help moisture and provide antioxidant protection.

These concealers are in little pots and have a super creamy consistency. I can blend this easily with my finger or a brush. The coverage is pretty sheer to medium and you can build it up a little but it isn’t full by any means. The peach toned corrector is easily hidden under the concealer side and does work to cancel out any darkness under my eyes.
