Some Drugstore Favourites

I just love browsing the drugstore for deals on all of the great beauty products offered. Some of my favourite products that I've mentioned a ton include Maybelline Color Tattoos and Revlon Lip Butters, but I wanted to write about a few drugstore items that I have not mentioned before. 

L'oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Carbon Black - This is a super creamy, super pigmented black eyeliner that is very similar to some high end eyeliners that I have tried. Actually, I would compare this to Tarte's Skinny SmolderEyes Amazonian Clay Eyeliner. They both have a similar texture, blend out nicely and stay in place. Both are long-wearing and also include a smudger on the end, which I love. The only real difference I see is that you can buy about three of the L'oreal version for the price of one from Tarte. 

There are a lot of drugstore lip products that are amazing, and comparable to much higher end products. In particular, I enjoy using the Rimmel Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liners and the Revlon Colorburst Lip Glosses. The colours I have in each are:

Rimmel Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liners:
  • Eastend Snob - this is the perfect pinky nude liner that can be used with pretty much any lipstick besides red. I love this shade and use it on a regular basis.
  • Ravish - when I want to do a red lip, this is the liner I use. It is a deep, almost brick red liner. I don't wear red lipstick that often, but when I do, it is nice to have an inexpensive liner that works.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss:
  • Bellini - this is my go-to peachy nude gloss that I use mainly in the summer. It gives that extra shine when I layer over my more coral toned lipsticks.
  • Rose Pearl - this is a mauvey rose shimmering gloss that looks pretty layered over any lipstick, but particularly my berry toned lipsticks.

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in Sunny - You have probably heard about this bronzer, and that is because it is perfect, and so cheap. It is the perfect sheer matte bronzer that could warm up anyone's skintone, or provide the perfect contour. 

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush in Natural - I love this blush from Physicians Formula. It gives a really healthy natural looking flush to the cheeks, and it is so cute, with the hearts and the pink packaging. 

So there are a few of the drugstore products that I reach for on a regular basis. But the drugstore is always putting out new and great things, so I'll update my drugstore favourites as I discover and try them.

Thanks for reading!
