Budget Beauty Buys

We all know makeup can be expensive; especially if you buy it from department stores, but if you look hard enough you might find some hidden gems at the drugstore. Here are my drugstore finds:

Foundation: Revlon Colorstay Foundation $10.39
I like it because it’s lightweight and is formulated with SPF. It can be used by all skin types and it won’t clog your pores. The buildable coverage gives your face a fresh natural finish.

Bronzer: Mark Bronzer $12.50 and Rimmel London Natural Bronzer $5
I like both bronzers for a couple of reasons. The Mark Pro Bronzer gives you a gorgeous glow because it has a slight shimmer to it. It comes in a compact with a mirror and brush applicator. The Rimmel London Natural Bronzer is a great inexpensive matte bronzer, it is highly pigmented and gives you a believable faux tan in seconds.

Blush: Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush $7.99
This is the new powder-gel blush from Maybelline. It’s easy to apply and it gives your cheeks a burst of color. Peach Satin is a pretty color for summer. Check out the full review here.

Eye Shadow: NYX Eyeshadow Trio $7
I absolutely love these eyeshadow trios. The colors are rich and long-lasting. The trio combinations complement each other and blend smoothly. NYX also offers eyeshadow singles which are great too.

Eyeliner: Loreal Felt Tip Liner $6.50
This is the easiest liquid eyeliner to apply. The felt tip liner is flexible and easily glides onto your lids. You can’t go wrong with this liner. Check out the full review here.

Mascara:  Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara $8.95
This mascara contains fibers that adhere to your lashes, making your lashes appear longer. No falsies needed here!

Lipgloss: E.L.F Lipgloss Glossy Gloss $3
Best inexpensive lipgloss by far. The formula is not sticky and gives your lips a pop of color with added shine.

 Bobbi Brown Pencil

If you’re a fan of Bobbi’s Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, then you will love this eye pencil. It’s the same formula in a pencil. The best part is that is lasts for up to 12 hours. This stuff does not rub off! The pencil is easier to work with than the gel and brush, but you do achieve a slicker line with the gel. This pencil is great for anyone who has trouble working with liquid liners because it works like a kohl pencil but gives you the intense stay put look of liquid. I lined my whole eye with it. At the end of the day, more than 60% of the liner was still visible on my lower lash line (minimal smudging) and my entire upper line was still intact. This will be my go to liner when I am short on time and my everyday go to for my lower lashes.

The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Pencil is available in: Jet (Black), Black Plum, Mahogany, Hunter, Smoke, Black Navy

All Pencils come with a complimentary sharpener. $24

Tip: Don’t press too hard or the point will break off!

This has been my go-to liquid eyeliner since my early teen years. Prior to using this eyeliner I remember always struggling with stiff marker like eyeliners or flimsy brush eyeliners that would spread my line to wide or make an uneven line, because the brush was having a bad hair day!

L’Oreal Felt Tip Eyeliner has super flexible tip applicator that makes putting on your eyeliner quick and easy, two swipes and you’re ready to go. It has a shiny finish, so if you are looking to create a bold matte line, this liner is not for you. I sometimes like to start with this eyeliner and then I apply a matte gel liner over it, I like using Bobbie Brown’s Gel Eyeliner. I can get the liquid liner closer to my lashes and by using both I can achieve a polished finish.

So I just can’t express how much I love the felt tip applicator, I would be disappointed if it ever got discontinued. L’Oreal please never stop making this! This is a classic!
