I ♥ Drugstore Makeup TAG!

Doing a tag that will hopefully help some ladies master the drugstore aisles! 

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand?
Most likely L'Oreal. I do like Revlon a lot but I see in my personal collection I seem to have accumulated and use mostly L'Oreal drugstore products. Especially base make up. 
I am not too keen on their color products but their infallible cream eye shadows are superb along with a good range of mascaras. 

2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?

Best cheek products in the drugstore is hands down the Milani baked blushes. Incredible color payoff, nice texture, and great finish effect. You just have to get over the gaudy gold packaging.
Prestige also has very cute blushes with a lovely pay off, I love the shade "Natural"
I am also very curious on trying NYC's Sunny bronzer!

Best lip products are the Revlon lip glosses. Their entire lip range is quite good. The color burst line, the lip glosses, the stains many people enjoy, the lip butters! I think they know how to make their lippies.

3. Least favorite product?

Physicians Formula Translucent powder. Looked powdery and cakey very fast. 

4. What is the best makeup bargain?

Wet n Wild Eye shadows. Great texture, pigmentation, color range, and price. 

5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)

Maybelline Age Rewind concealer in "Brightener". I've used this daily for months, and not only have I only used about 1 percent of product but the opacity is great, the pink tones do brighten without being obvious, and the blend ability is surprisingly good.

It's like a mix of YSL Touch Eclat with Benefit's Eye Bright. 
I know all the drugstore lines are coming out with brightening pens, but I do enjoy this one, and will buy a normal concealer shade in the future. 

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?

Physicians formula I feel is very expensive. I know a lot of it is geared towards sensitive skin and good ingredients but some of their stuff has zero pigmentation and it was retails at around $17. 
I always only get it on offer. 

7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!

Wet n' Wild Brule vs. MAC Brule
 Revlon Cherries in the Snow vs. Chanel Pirate

8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?
Probably almost every single Maybelline mascara I have ever tried (outside Full n Soft)  been a complete dud for me. Great lash, Falsies, Colossal, Mega Plush, Stiletto, Lash Discovery, Black drama! 
Ironically I just recently purchased the Cat Eyes Colossal...I just never learn.
Once I finally try the One by One Volume Express which so many people like, if I hate it, I am quitting Maybelline mascaras for life.


  1. I just saw Makeup by Alli's version of this tag too! Very useful post - I'm seriously thinking of doing my own Australian version :)

  2. lol about the mascaras! I do like Loreal mascaras too :) And WnW palettes. I think the pigmentation is really quite good =) I agree w/you about the PF stuff...overpriced!

  3. I used to love Define a Lash! I now have to try the Age Rewind, I didn't know they made a brightener!

  4. Agreed on Colossal Mascara and Great Lash!! I was waiting for it to WOW me and I was just disappointed instead :(

  5. great tag!! i have just discovered the maybelline age rewind concealer and LOVE it .. the coverage is ahhhmazing for a product that is super light weight and doesn't crease around the eye area throughout the day. i've almost finished my first tube .. and have already brought a backup =)

  6. I always need a good mascara<3 I love the Flase Fiber Lash~ Totally bumps them up!
    Great tag!

  7. Lol, I now consider PF a dirt cheap line because they do go on sale like every other week (and each sales takes out 7 bucks on one product ) at CVS.

  8. Hope you find some lovely shades!!

  9. WHAT!!!! my CVS blows.... I never see those

  10. What brand is false fiber lash? thanks!

  11. almost finished? whoa! you must love it! ive been using it for months and it still looks new!! LOL

  12. thank goodness! i seriously did NOT get it!

  13. it's a nice pinky shade! it looks very pink in the tube but on my yellow toned skin it blends very well!

  14. i love some PF stuff but i never get it at full price! sigh pains me to say! lol

  15. that would be soooooooooo cool!!!!
    I did this tag bc of Allie! hehe

  16. The L'oreal infallible shades look gorgeous on you! Which shades are those? I am a fan of those as well. Bummer that Maybelline mascaras don't work for you either! :(

  17. Shades are listed in this post

    Currently trying the new Cat eyes mascara its not bad! good at length i dont see the volume at all though! lol

  18. Well, not bad is a good start! haha.

  19. Vita, please do your version too. And Lil Lady? -- thanks for doing it. :)
