Are you broke from Christmas? Want to treat yourself to a little something without breaking your wallet?
Well, I've got a list here of inexpensive but awesome drugstore products for those that want to be beautiful on a budget.
This is not my top 2011 list (that is coming soon) but these are all really good products and I'd recommend trying them!
From left to right:
- Cover Girl Lash Blast 24 Hr $9.99 CAD
This literally blew me out of the water! I almost gave up on drugstore mascaras, until I tried this. It lengthens and volumizes all while holding a curl like nothing else! It stays on all day without flaking or smudging.
- Wet n Wild coloricon palette in greed $6.99 CAD
Almost every color in this palette is a MAC dupe, and the quality of the shadows in lust are by far superior to those in other WnW palettes I've tried. This also looks amazing with green eyes!
- NYC smooth skin pressed powder in translucent $2.99 CAD
One of my all time favorite powders ever. It's very light and doesn't oxidize, doesn't emphasize dry skin like so many powders do and it covers pores for a flawless look. You really can't go wrong with this.
- Maybelline super stay 14 hr lipstick in beige forgood $10.99 CAD
This color is a fantastic neutral beige nude. It stays on for hours and doesn't dry my lips out. This is one of my top lipsticks right now.
- Maybelline baby lips lip balm in peach kiss $3.97 CAD
Although the artificial scent and taste aren't to my liking, this is a nice light hydrating balm to wear by itself or under lipstick. I have found since using this daily my lips do not feel as dry or chapped as before.
- Cover girl lip perfection lipstick in romance $ 8.99 CAD
I was pleasantly surprised to find lip perfection lipsticks are super pigmented and rich. They last a while and hydrate, it's hard to believe these are made by cover girl. Romance is a lovely pinked mauve shade with slight shimmer, it looks great on pale skin!
- Maybelline color tattoo 24hr cream gel eyeshadows $6.97 CAD
These cream eyeshadows are just super. I love my MAC paint pots but these are just as good. You can see more about them here.
- Revlon colorstay blemish concealer with softflex $10.99 CAD
This is the best concealer I have found that covers minor imperfections and redness. I always feel better after I put it on because I know it won't come off until I decide to take it off. The amount of Salicylic acid is too low to have any anti-acne benefits but this is still a great choice if you want to keep covered all day.
Well that's all for now, do you like any of these drugstore picks?
