L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte
My #1 go to drug store foundation! I’m obsessed with this foundation, it’s comparable to some of my high-end foundations that I love like the Dior Forever foundation & Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic foundation, except it’s less than half the price! This foundation is amazing for combo/oily skin types who need an all day wear who prefer a medium to full coverage. I highly recommend! The best part is usually the drug store will retail this with a deal, like buy one get one 50% off!
L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glow Compact
This is my new favorite face powder compact! It’s a beautiful fine milled smooth powder that gives you a medium coverage. Half of the compact is the regular shades powder & the other half is a luminescent version of the powder, so when used your skin gets a mattified but still glow complexion appearance! Perfect for anyone of any skin type, but definitely a hit with my oily girls who want to look glow but not greasy!
L’Oreal True Match
Can you tell I like L’Oreal? (If you didn’t already know, L’Oreal actually owns a few high end luxury lines such as YSL, Armani, Lancomé, & more) Here’s another foundation thats an oldie but a goodie! If the Pro Matte is too matte for your preference, True Match is the perfect fit, with the right powder you can achieve a mattified all day wear or minimal powder you can achieve a more luminous finish with all day wear. It’s long wearing, medium to full coverage, & hydrating.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
This concealer has been noted in the beauty community as a cult favorite & a close dupe to the NARS radiant creamy concealer, but again, for a fourth of the price of NARS! It’s a medium to full coverage light weight, hydrating, creamy concealer. They have a beautiful shade range whether you are using this under the eyes or to conceal all over the face. My personal favorite is using this concealer under the eyes.
Maybelline Eye Stiletto
I’m always on the hunt for the perfect pigmented, matt, black, liquid eyeliner with an easy applicator. Not only is this the perfect liquid eyeliner but it’s also a small fraction of the price of high end luxury liquid liners. I would compare this eyeliner to Dior’s Art Pen & Charlotte Tilbury’s Feline Flick, except way more affordable & the life span of this product is amazing, it takes forever to dry out!
Maybelline Falsies Volume Express
One of my holy grail mascaras in general, & especially from the drug store. It’s got an amazing plush mascara brush thats slightly curved to give you maximum length, volume, & curl. They do a variety of shades from black to brown, & this is another product I find has a creamy formula & amazingly long life span. I love this mascara alone for ‘no makeup-makeup’ days but I also love layering it under a few of my favorite high end mascaras.
Wet N Wild Contouring Palette
This contour palette competes with some of my favorite high end contouring palettes such as Kat Von D & Anastasia Beverly Hills. What I love most about it is the under eye banana colored highlight pan! This banana shade gives me life under my eyes, its the perfect banana brightening shade to set a concealer with. The bronzer shade is a deep chocolate color thats very pigmented, a little goes a long way, so I recommend starting with a little & building from there when using this to contour.
Wet N wild Highlight
Wet N Wild nailed it with these highlighters, not only do they come in a beautiful assortment of shades, but they’re huge! You definitely get your moneys worth for the price of these highlighters. My particular favorite is the golden colored highlight featured in the blog header picture. You can softly apply these for a gentle glow or layer them for an amp’d up blinding highlight, adding a little setting spray could make you shine bright like a diamond with this on!
