01.20.16 Drugstore Haul

I repurchased some real gems today at the drugstore! 


Maybelline Fit Me Concealer:

Great shade range, especially nice highlight shades. The consistency is too thin to be called 'creamy', but it layers nicely. Lasts on average 5hrs with minimal creasing, and medium coverage. So, so good.  

NYX Matte Finish: 

This setting spray is more alcohol packed than glycerine (unlike Mac Fix+), which gives the skin a slight sheen that's easily tamed with a dusting of powder. Matte Finish gives more expensive setting sprays a run for their money, helping makeup last 12hrs +.

Maybelline The Falsies: 

This mascara is more glamorous and dramatic than natural- just the way I like my makeup! Each coat really pumps up the volume with an impactful jet black that doesn't flake or smudge. 

Benefit Individual Lashes: 

I'm waiting for Eyemimo Lashes to arrive in the mail. In the meantime, these will do. I like how each package (the one pictured) contains four different lengths of group flares to create realistic, fluffy lashes. 

Real Techniques Makeup Sponge: 

Not as good as the Beauty Blender, but $20 cheaper. 

Milani Blush in Pink Dolce: 

OMG. OMG. This baked blush is the most stunning, baby pink with a subtle gold shimmer. Beautiful on all skin tones. Probably not the best for uneven texture like wrinkles or acne, but everyone else... Start the car! 

Smashbox Blush in Flush: 

A staple in my kit, every bride loves this shade. A subtle, natural baby pink with the most gentle frost to give a natural looking glow. 

Smashbox Lipstick in Famous: 

A pretty nude lipstick, with a sheen. The peach undertone makes it wearable on most light to medium skin tones. Nothing to freak out about, but reliably pretty. You'll reach for Famous often. 

Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows: 

It'll only take $6 to change your eyeshadow life. Pick up one of these shimmering little beauties from Rexall tonight- they're on sale! I have the shades Amber Rush (a peachy champagne) and Bronzed Taupe (a blow-your-socks-off-beautiful shade of taupe perfect for the office or date night). I can't say enough about how pigmented and pretty these are. Best applied with your finger on the centre of the lid for a pop of color. No seriously, you need these.
