Love at First Swipe
I love sharing my favorite drugstore finds so here are a few that have become a part of my everyday make up routine. I really feel like I struck gold with these finds! I still think it’s important to spend a little extra on a good moisturizer, foundation and concealer but, when it comes to lipstick, eye liners/pencils and especially mascara I honestly believe drugstore brands get the job done at a fraction of the price!
Covergirl Queen Collection Lipcolor Lipstick in South Beach Sand & Covergirl Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Pink Diamond: I fell in love with Taylor Swift’s lip color in this month’s Elle magazine cover and was shocked to find out inside the mag that the lovely nude was actually made by Covergirl! The jumbo gloss stick was an impulse purchase and surprisingly I prefer it over Clinique’s Chubby Sticks! The sticks are packed with ingredients like Shea and Mango butter to help moisturize your lips while giving them a lovely sheen.
L’oreal Telescoptic Shocking Extensions: So my go to mascara has always been Maybelline’s The Collasal mascara but I found a new favorite! It’s good to switch it up and try different brushes and formulas to see what works best with your lashes. I usually like the big, fat brushes for volume but I realized that finding a brush that LENGTHENS gives a more dramatic look. This tube of lashy goodness wraps around EVERY single lash to give you long, dark and dramatic eye lashes as if you were one of the Kardashsian’s. It’s seriously a miracle in a tube.
Wet n Wild Idol Eye in Pixie: At $1.99 a pop you cannot go wrong. I used to buy and feel utterly guilty for spending $20 on Make Up Forever Aqua Shadow but finally have found an alternative that comes SUPER close to the expensive stuff. Not going to lie, of course the Make Up Forever stays on and takes two cotton balls soaked in eye remover to take off but, what’s the harm in re-applying throughout the day? I love applying this stuff on the corners of my eyes to brighten them up.
Hope you guys give these all a try and love them as much as I do! xx
