Current Beauty Favorites | Drugstore Edition


I am so excited to share this post with all of you! While I love beautifully packaged, high-end beauty goodies; there is also nothing I love more than finding drugstore options that are just as luxurious. The items in today's post cause most to do a double take and many often protest that they came from a drugstore. These items aren't dupes per say, they are just really great products that have been consistently in my bag recently. 

1] Maybelline "The Nudes" Eyeshadow Palette : This is a new release but it has already shot straight to the top of my makeup bag favorites. For only about ten dollars this palette does it all. My favorite combo definitely comes from the middle four. I'm really loving bronzy eyes at the moment. The reason the palette is so fantastic is because it's colors range from warm to cool with all the basics you need for an everyday eye as well as a nighttime look. The back of the palette is super handy as well. It shows charts highlighting the different combinations and ways to wear the shadows. For someone just starting out with eyeshadow who doesn't want to spend a ton, this palette is definitely for you. 

2] L'Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lash Mascara : In general I am a big fan of L'Oreal Paris mascaras. I feel that their formula and wands really do just as a nice a job as higher end brands. I scooped this new mascara up for two reason; the fiber lash formula and for the wand. None of my other wands are as narrow and comb-like so I wanted to give this one a go. The claims on the packaging definitely don't disappoint. I have used this mascara every day since purchasing it. I love the way it coats lashes without getting super clumpy or flakey and the wand is great for getting into the corners of your eyes. I also love this wand for my bottom lashes. Since it is a smaller wand, it's great for coating those little guys. 

3] Maybelline Line Stiletto Liquid Eyeliner : This liner. I could write a novel about this liner. I have actually used this one for years. I have also turned all of my friends onto this liner as well. While I often play around and test other liquid liners; I always come back to this guy. Nothing beats this liner. I've had makeup artist at high end counters ask me what liner I'm wearing and they are constantly amazed by my response. The felt tip doesn't drag or pull, it creates an even and precise line, and this stuff stays all day but isn't a pain to remove. I can't tell you how many tubes of this stuff I have gone through. If you told me I could only have one beauty product for the rest of my life, I'm tempted to say this one might be it.

4] Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Blush Beige : Can you see a theme going on here? Clearly I love me some Maybelline makeup. Along with their nude eyeshadow palette they recently released a nude lipstick line as well. Ashlyn and I checked them out a few weeks ago and tested just about every swatch. I landed on this one but I am tempted to go back and snag a few others. I mean...you can never have too many nude lipsticks...am I right? The formula is creamy and sheer. Perfect for layering.

What makeup product can you not live without? Is it a high-end or a drugstore buy? I'd love to hear your favorites in the comments below!

  2. I've been on the search for a new mascara for a while. I've tried drugstore brands and high end. I'm always disappointed with both but I think I'm going to run out and buy this one as soon as I get out of work and give it a try! Thanks for the recommendations.

    1. Thank you Grace! I've never tried the Dior lip products, I'm a big fan of their mascaras though. Definitely adding the fluid stick to my wish list though!
