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!

Photo Focus Mat Fin setting spray

Hello my lovlies! im back with another beauty blog…duh!

Hopefully you guys arent getting sick of the wet n wild reviews because boy do i have a lot more coming! Lately ive been really liking this brand. I like how affordable these products are, and how most of them are pretty good quality. Now i know i used to say that about E.l.f when Hailey and i first started our blogs, but in my opinion Wet n Wild is a higher quality than most of the E.l.f makeup products.

Way back in the early days of the blog i did a review on E.l.f’s liquid setting spray. After that bottle had emptied, i didnt buy any more setting sprays because i didnt find the use in them at the time. We used to live in a colder state so makeup sweating off wasnt a big worry, the biggest worry for makeup users in out state was it being rained off! Now that live in a hotter state i have now realized the importance of setting spray.

Photofocus Mat Fin Setting Spray:

like i mentioned before, and if you couldnt tell from the lable. This is a wet n wild product. i bought this before i moved because i thought that i might need it due to the hot Texas weather. Boy was i right, this setting spray really comes in handy when the weather is 106 F ( 41 C ) and you want to look cute and put together.

Discription:

This product has a matte plastic container that has a black see through lid. The bottle is fairly small and there are numbers on the lid. I can only assume that the numbers are the lid are only for decoration because i have found no actual purpose for them otherwise.

Pros:

  • Small and travel size, easy to pack around in a purse for re application
  • Dries fast
  • Partnered with the Matte primer of this same colection it helps keep your makeup on for a majoirty of the day

Cons:

  • Smells like chemicals which makes me worry about what im putting on my face.
  • Does not give a “Mat Fin” look, i hardly see any difference in the look of my makeup
  • Wetness of spray makes mascara run, would recommend putting mascara on after for a cleaner look

All in all i would give this product a rating of 7/10. I really liked how this product helped my makeup last longer, but i didnt like how it didnt give a matte finish whats so ever. At first i thought it was because i wasnt applying a lot of product, but even when i drenched myself in the spray, once it dried i still didnt get the matte look. I think that was my biggest displeasure of this product was the false advertizsng, it has the same affect as a normal setting spray, which im totally okay with!

comment down below your favorite setting spray!

NYX Brand Review

Hello my lovelies! Lately we have been doing a lot of NYX reviews, but that’s just because NYX is awesome!

I cannot believe that it’s almost September! Almost chia tea latte season! I may not be a full white girl, but your girl loves her some chia tea latte in the fall, especially where Hailey and I used to live, a chia tea latte definitely warmed you up. Now that I’m in Texas I think I’m really going to miss a true fall season, but at the same I’m excited to not be so darn cold until August comes around again.

Ah! Now back to the review!

A few months ago I had a big NYX haul, the first of which was:

NYX Shimmery orange lipstick:

I bought this lipstick because I wanted to try getting out of my comfort zone. I often stick to non bright colors (until recently) so I would stick with reds and other more typical colors of lipstick. I was a bit worried to by this because I tried finding a non shimmery lipstick that was orange, having shimmer in it made this lipstick more out of my comfort zone

I’m happy to say that I actually liked the shimmer on the lips, it adds and nice touch to it and I really like this shade of orange! The last isn’t very long unfortunately, I had to re-apply it like every hour, other than that I really enjoyed this lipstick, definitely a keep!

Max Studio Liquid Lipstick

Hello my lovlies! If you guys have been keeping up with our blog, you know that Hailey and i love us some Marshalls makeup. Going to Marhsalls was one of my favorite things to do with Haily becuase her and i would pick apart the makeup/beauty section till there was nothing left! Anything with Hailey is a joy, its also just fun to talk about our lovely followers, and you better believe her and i talk about you all non-stop!

Today i will be reviewing Max Studio’s liquid lipstick. I found this lipstick at Marshalls while Hailey was helping me find shoes for graduation. Its funny because i told myself i was only there to get shoes and help Hailey pick out makeup or shoes if she needed it. Naturally i have no self control and bought this lipstick…want to know my reasoning? “Christine, you need this lipstick because you dont have lipsticks.” If you have seen any of our post, a majority of mine are lipsticks. I have a huge addiction to lipsticks its kinda scary. But hey, more content for our blogs right?

Max Studio Liquid Lipstick:

Description:

  • redish pink shade
  • plastic tube
  • cushioned applicator
  • long gold cap to hold

Pros:

  • smooth application

E.l.f Brand Review

Hello my lovelies! I’m back with another Elf review! Lately I haven’t been a huge Elf fan. Elf has always been a hit or miss with their products, and for awhile I was getting more hits than misses, but now I’m getting more misses than hits.

I’m gonna start with the…

Elf makeup remover pen:

As you can see I’ve already used this..well duh Christine, why wouldn’t you review something you haven’t used?

Well I wouldn’t, can’t judge a book by its cover. This product I found with Hailey and we were both very excited for me to try it out. If you’re like me, there are those days that your eyeliner just doesn’t want to work with you (comment down below if you have those days!) and that can be a PAIN! I thought that this one would clean away any eyeliner mess perfectly. I was surprised that it did kind of work, although the brush of this pen is a bit oily to help remove makeup, it took the eyeliner off, but it also smudged that area really bad, so it didn’t fully remove the makeup. So I give removal a 3/10 because it didn’t fully remove the makeup. I also didn’t like how it dried out within the hour I opened it, and I didn’t even have it opened for that long, so that was my second biggest issue with the product, it doesn’t fully remove makeup and it doesn’t really last long at all, for last I would give it a 0/10. All in all I really thought this product would be a big hit, a must have, but I would make recommend this if you have like a special event for the day and want it just in case? Other than that it didn’t work very well.
