Affordable Beauty Favorites

June 9, 2016


I love "drugstore" beauty products. Wayyy more than high end ones. They're so affordable and you literally are more than likely going to get the same results! Given, there are some types of products that are definitely worth investing in- for me it's my shadows. I swear by Mac shadows- they're so worth the money! They last all day and are super pigmented. But other than eye shadows- you definitely do not need to be throwing down a ton of money for your beauty products! Keep on reading to find out which ones are my favorite.



My favorite drugstore eye shadow has to be the Maybelline single in the color Linen 15S. After trial and error with a ton of different drugstore brands, I believe Maybelline is one of the best for eye shadows. This shade is perfect for everyday and is a good blending shade as well. Maybelline's formula is also very pigmented so it's totally worth it!


 Blush is always so much fun to me! I love the pop of color it can add to a look. For me, I always opt for a rose colored blush and this one from Covergirl is no less than perfect. It is the Covergirl Cheekers in the shade 185 True Plum. This blush is gorgeous and is really pigmented- my definite favorite. 

As for pencil eyeliner, I like to use a natural shade. L'Oreal is a brand that is consistently proving themselves to make it to the top of my absolute favorite drugstore brand list. The quality of their products are always amazing and for such an affordable price! This pencil is called the Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner. It's in the color brown- which I love because adding this on my days off adds the most perfect amount of definition to my eyes. To use this for a more formal occasion, I will run a little bit  on the corners of my eye and then take a small pencil brush and smudge it to create a subtle smokey eye. This is an amazing pencil eyeliner.



 Another amazing L'Oreal product- the Voluminous Butterfly mascara. This is one of those products that work just as well if not better than high end mascaras. My lashes take on such volume and length when I use this stuff! It's incredible. I've been using this one for such a long time; I'm super brand loyal to L'Oreal products LOL!



Whenever I go out, I always use under eye concealer. My favorite it this Maybelline Fit Me one.  I was using others all throughout high school but none have done such a great job at covering up my dark circles than the Fit Me. It's comparable to the Nars Creamy Concealer one- but this one does just as well. 


This is probably one of the best steals ever. I have seen so many of my friends pay like $9+ dollars for a liquid eyeliner- but I discovered the Wet N' Wild Megaliner probably in my sophomore year of high school and have been loyal to it ever since! It is such an amazing liquid eyeliner- it's so pigmented and they just recently changed their brush tip from bristles to a felt tip- which made it even more amazing.



Milani always has the best lipstick and lip liners. They're really pigmented and offer amazing colors! This one is in the shade 43 Pretty Natural. 


I hardly wear foundation, but when I do I always opt for a product that is going to help my skin rather than harm it. The Covergirl Clean Oil Control foundation does just that and also looks really natural on the skin.
