A few weeks ago, I’ve thought of doing a haul of drugstore favorites that I have not tried yet. Instead of going to the store to check out what’s new, getting a few new items and ending up not liking them, I thought that getting a few items that the beauty community loves is wiser! So, I asked a few bloggers about their favorites and they gave some recommendations. I also went through Lily Pebbles’ and Vivianna Does Makeup’s blogs because their my faves and they always have some great product recommendations! Armed with gift certificates that I got for Christmas, off I went to the drugstore to pick up the items on my very short list!
L’Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation – This is probably the product that has been most recommended to me! I’ve heard about it’s greatness for so long and Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup raves about this foundation! When I first tried it, I wanted to hit myself in the head for not getting it sooner! It’s such a great foundation! I have been wearing it everyday since I got it!
Covergirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara – This is another highly recommended product. I’ve been loyal to my Maybelline The Colossal Mascara for so long that I thought it’s time to change things up a bit! Mascara-wise, that is! Haha.
Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner in Black – OMG! This is the softest, most pigmented gel eyeliner from the drugstore that I have ever tried! No wonder it’s a favorite by a lot of bloggers!
Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Pink – This is a Lily Pebbles approved product! It’s a peachy-pink blush that is very blendable, pigmented and quite long-lasting! I’ve been using this since I got it as well! It such a great everyday blusher!
Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy in Up The Ante – I’ve been hunting down this nail polish color ever since I saw Estee of Essiebutton and a host of other bloggers rave about this color! This color is not one that I would normally wear but I’m kinda in love with it! It’s gel-like formula makes it very long-lasting as well! I’ve only experienced chipping on the 5th day I’ve had this color on!
Maybelline Electro Pop Baby Lips in Berry Bomb – This really didn’t come recommended but I got it still because it’s in a newer packaging! Haha. I’ve tried a few Maybelline Baby Lips before (the ones in the old packaging) and I really liked them! So when I saw this one in a newer packaging, I just couldn’t resist! I mean, you need lip balm the whole year round, right?
What are your favorite products from the drugstore? Please do give me some recommendations because I’d love to do a part 2 of this haul!
