Drug Store Makeup Must Haves



I love makeup just as much as the next girl, but it is definitely hard for me to go to Sephora or Ulta each time I need something and spend $20 a pop! I am on a budget and sadly (as much as I would love it) a make-up fund is not a part of it. That being said I thought that I would share my favorite drug store items; read on to hear more about my favorites.

Maybelline Matte and Poreless 

this foundation has been a consistent product since i first discovered it. At the time I have somewhat oily skin, but as I get older I am becoming a little more dry and this guy knocks it out of the park regardless. It is medium to full coverage that lasts all day. It also does not settle in your fine lines or break up on your face after hours of wear.

Milani Rose Blush

The packaging first attracted me to this blush, too cute! I am a fan of most Milani products but I do especially like this one as it is super affordable, the pigment is great and blendable.

Revlon “Cherries in the Snow” 

This one is an oldie but a goodie! it is really the perfect bright red for any season along with also being hydrating and long wearing. I have to admit that I am kind of over the liquid lipstick trend, most tend to be too dry for my liking so I do often revert to the classic tube lipstick. The name of this shade is also to die for!

Wet n’ Wild Highlighter

If you want your highlight to be seen a mile away this is totally the affordable highlighter for you. Such an awesome price point as well a pigment! They have several colors / shades and all the names are super cute as well.

Essence Rock n’ Doll Mascara 

I truly used to think that all mascara was the same until I saw a beauty blogger taking about Essence brand mascara and decided to give it a try, and boy am I glad I did. I love this stuff and I think it is around 6$! I would compare it to Benefit, Their Real mascara, but at a fraction of the price. Smooth application every time, coats the lashes very well, no flaking, and really lasts! Boo-ya!

NYC Liquid Eyeliner

This little guy is my favorite for winger liner, it has the best little brush for sleek lines and the perfect point on a cat eye. It is so inexpensive, dries matte and lasts. THe one downside can be a little flaking after you have been wearing it all day, but I have had high end eyeliners do that as well, so I will let that slide… 🙂

I would love to hear about your favorite drug store beauty items in the comments.

Hope you are having a great day wherever you are.
